Casa Matteo is an excellent setting for a gathering of friends or family.  The panoramic hilltop location is exclusive and private while still offering good access to Florence located just 15 minutes to the north.  The charming Chianti hill towns are also within easy striking distance. Siena is 50 minutes away and Lucca is approximately one hour’s drive.  The villa is spacious and has been tastefully and authentically restored.  The grounds are impressive and interspersed with olive groves planted throughout the property.  The large swimming pool with separate circular Jacuzzi (not a hot tub) and furnished stone solarium is especially remarkable.

Guests arrive at Casa Matteo by way of a typical Italian gravel country road (1200 meters) that winds through vineyards and olive groves.  The villa is about 1000 years old, dating back to its construction in the medieval period.  It evolved from a monastery to a private residence in the following century and was completely restored in 2006.  The exterior photos show this property’s splendid appearance with images of the 10,000 square meters of land that is totally enclosed. 

The handsome manicured lawn is bordered with attractive rose bushes and olive trees.  The covered outdoor stone patio is ideal for al fresco dining and includes a barbecue, a long table and comfortable chairs.  The swimming pool (15m x 7.5m) is near the patio and is furnished with sun loungers, chairs, tables and umbrellas. 

Constructed of beautiful terracotta tiles and beamed ceilings, Casa Matteo is 530 square meters in size and spans two floors.

Upon request and for an extra fee, four additional beds can be added inside the house. If desired and upon owner approval, the annex (one double bedroom, one bathroom) can be added to the rental. It also has a single sofa bed. This brings the total capacity of the villa to seventeen guests. The annex cannot be rented independently.
