Casale di Cellole, Tuscany, Italy

By Charlotte Beach

Casale di Cellole is a picturesque traditional Tuscan farm that’s been given a gentle contemporary makeover. It’s located in Siena’s Chianti Region, nestled amongst olive groves, vineyards, woodlands and lush gardens. There’s a communal pool and covered barbecue area, but the grounds are composed of five distinct residences that can be rented together or separately.

The Moon residence presents a playful blend of old and new, with preserved original Tuscan architecture that has been reimagined through decor evocative of the space age. Quirky lamps and bursts of color breathe life and humor into the white interiors, and a brick staircase leads to a rooftop terrace.

This secluded barn (Africa) has undergone a sensitive restoration that retains its original stone structure while adding luxe modern updates. Now, a panoramic window overlooks the private garden, and a steel staircase leads to the lofted double bedroom.

Welcome to River – the biggest residence at Casale di Cellole. Family-friendly and stylishly spacious, it has three double bedrooms each with views of the gardens and rolling hillsides. The apartment has access to the sprawling grounds and pool, with its own garden and private outdoor dining space.

Zoo is the perfect residence for a couple, with a two-story, one-bedroom layout featuring an assortment of eclectic objects inspired by the animal kingdom. With a private terrace and blooming trellis, Zoo makes for a quaint romantic escape.

Also forged from the bones of an old barn, Canopy is the most secluded of the five residences. It’s split into three levels with panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside, and presents as a beautiful, brightly-lit, and imaginative space ideal for an intimate group of friends and family.
