There is a long driveway, lined with centuries-old Cypress trees, leading up to Castello di Maiano,which was first built in the Middle Ages and then enlarged during the Renaissance to be an aristocratic residence. The villa lies in a panoramic position and has its own private chapel. It is shown on the map of Valdichiana drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503. It has belonged to the same family for centuries and lies at the centre of a large estate which produces Chianti wine and olive oil which you can buy directly from the farm. It has recently been carefully renovated, preserving the originality rooms with antique furniture, large 17th century stone fireplaces and splendid floors of terracotta, stone and marble. The villa is however equipped with every modern convenience like central heating, internet connection, satellite TV, and laundry service. The garden, which overlooks the valley, is surrounded by centuries-old trees, and on the stone panoramic terrace they have built a 16x6m swimming pool with a Roman staircase lined with mosaic work, with 2 bathroom/dressing rooms, and next to the pool they have built a hydromassage pool (3.5x2.5 m). From here you can access the gymnasium. All of the terrace at night is lit up by large wrought-iron lamps. The castello is 5 kms from Monte San Savino where there are excellent restaurants, and 6 kms from the A1 motorway exit, which places it in a central position for reaching all of the most interesting places to see such as Florence, Arezzo, Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, Perugia in less than an hour. Rome is only an hour and a half away by car. The staff who look after the villa live in an independent apartment at the rear.
