Toscana - Siena - SIENA


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only - CIR CODE: 052016LTN0057). Villa Rinaldi, just a few kilometres from the centre of Siena (8 km), is immersed in the green of the centuries-old trees of the Montagnola Senese Park, an authentic green lung considered a "Site of Community Importance" by virtue of the geological and botanical heritage that characterises it. The villa is located along a residential road in the small borgo of Santa Colomba, dominated by a 14th century castle-fortress and a small church, originally a watchtower, adorned with frescoes by Duccio da Buoninsegna. It occupies the ground floor of an elegant building, lovingly renovated by the current owners who live there (with discretion on the upper floor) only for short periods. Three large, elegant bedrooms with private bathroom and air conditioning, a cosy open-plan dining room and kitchen and an elegant sitting room that opens onto the fully-equipped garden, add value to the structure which is surrounded by a wonderful park immersed in the quiet of a wood of holm oaks, oaks and chestnut trees in the background. Walking in the undergrowth around the villa, you encounter an enchanted nature made up of strawberry trees, cyclamen and honeysuckle where you can stop and admire the landscape that stretches up to the towers of Siena. Villa Rinaldi is the deal place for those who want to spend a holiday dedicated to eco-sustainable tourism where nature is the protagonist. The Montagnola area, in fact, with its marked CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) trails and gentle hills is ideal for hikers, for those who love trekking or simply strolling around, enjoying the unspoiled nature and immersing themselves in the history, art and culture of the territory. It is also an incredible concentration of castles (Monteriggioni, Chiocciola, Celsa), churches and hermitages of rare beauty that can often be reached on foot (San Leonardo al Lago, Lecceto), testifying to the thousand routes that were part of the Via Francigena, still travelled today.



Villa Rinaldi is on the ground floor of the building and the main entrance, located on the side of the building, goes into an elegant hallway which leads, on the right, into the large living room with study corner and direct exit out to the garden and, on the left, to the kitchen and dining room. The sleeping area consists of a double bedroom (with divisible beds) with ensuite bathroom with tub, and two twin bedrooms (with joinable beds), both with ensuite bathroom with shower. The apartment is completed by the laundry room


Simply idyllic is the one-hectare park, completely fenced and accessible, which extends to the rear of the building, marked along the perimeter by centuries-old oak trees and refreshing woody vegetation. The arboreal heritage and the sparkling symphony of flowers planted in every corner of the welcoming garden are simply remarkable. Within the park, along a path immersed in silence, you will find an authentic garden of Eden devoted to lazing around and conviviality, with various spots equipped with chairs and tables and a convenient dining area at the living room exit. The undergrowth is rich in junipers, honeysuckles, strawberry trees, ferns, cyclamens, violets, hellebores, strawberries and wild blackberries that you come across just by walking around the house. The park is completed by a vegetable garden with seasonal vegetables and herbs available to guests. The parking area is located just past the entrance gate to the property. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The swimming pool is located in the most discreet area of the property, on lower terracing about 20 m from the villa and reached down a few steps or down a path. Rectangular, with submerged steps for acess to the water, the pool measures 4 x 8 m with the depth varying from 1.50 to 1.70 m. Lined in PVC with a stone-paved border, it is equipped with internal spotlights, salt purification and a waterproof cover for the night. The surrounding sunbathing area is equipped with a large umbrella, small tables and sofas, sunbeds and a cold-water shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Villa Rinaldi, just a few kilometres from the centre of Siena, is immersed in the green of the centuries-old trees of the Montagnola Senese Park, an authentic green lung considered a "Site of Community Importance" by virtue of the geological and botanical heritage that characterises it. The villa is located along a residential road in the small borgo of Santa Colomba, dominated by a 14th century castle-fortress and a small church, originally a watchtower, adorned with frescoes by Duccio da Buoninsegna. Siena is located in the centre of Tuscany, between the valleys of the rivers Arbia, Merse and Elsa, immersed in the most typical of Tuscan landscapes defined by the gentle hills of Chianti to the north-east, by the Montagnola to the west (an authentic green lung, today a Site of Community Importance due to its natural and artistic peculiarities) and by the Crete Senesi to the south-east. It can be easily reached both from the south (from the Valdichiana exit on the A1 motorway and then along the Bettolle-Siena highway) and from the north, or from the airports (from the Firenze Impruneta exit on the A1 motorway, and then along the Firenze-Siena highway). The immeasurable historical, artistic and landscape heritage makes Siena, capital of Gothic, a showpiece city whose historic centre is included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, thanks to its perfect stylistic geometry, unique in its kind. Within the city walls is a real open-air museum, crossed by alleys and narrow streets, breathtaking views, hidden corners, wonderful gardens, ancient churches that house authentic works of art and splendid squares. The most famous, Piazza del Campo, dominates in the centre: made up of nine segments that give it its characteristic shell shape, it is the scenographic location that twice a year hosts the Palio horse race, the ancient competition that involves all the citizens, organised in 17 contrade (districts), each with their own coat-of-arms. On one side of the square is the majestic Palazzo Pubblico, current seat of the Municipality and the Civic Museum, which dominates the square softened by the elegance of the 87 metre-high Torre del Mangia, whose summit, reached by climbing over 400 steps, offers a panoramic viewpoint over the entire city. The Palazzo is one of the most important examples of Gothic architecture and a treasure trove of art masterpieces with its majestic rooms that can be visited, among which we would like to mention the Sala del Mappamondo, the Sala del Concistororo and the Sala della Pace with works by Duccio di Buoninsegna, Simone Martini, Lorenzetti. Moving along the three main streets of the city (Via di Città, Banchi di Sotto and Banchi di Sopra), full of beautiful buildings, shops and artisan workshops, you can visit the monumental Basilica of San Domenico or Palazzo Chigi Saracini, rich in history and home to the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, one of the most prestigious graduate schools in the world, and the Piazza del Duomo. Here, welcoming the visitor, is the recently restored, imposing 13th century façade. The floor of the Duomo (entirely uncovered and visible from mid-August to the end of October) is a “picture Bible” with 56 marble squares with inlays and graffiti executed between 1369 and 1547, following the design of great artists. Opposite is the old Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala, one of the oldest in Europe, built along the very important Via Francigena to assist pilgrims on their way to Rome and today transformed into a museum complex. In Siena, the handicrafts, gastronomy consisting of typical sweets, cheeses and salami, and fine wines are all excellent and bring a message of strong cultural and local tradition; here the food and wine stop is a must for the traveller to seal a souvenir of an unforgettable holiday.
