Description


Welcome to Amarika, a traditional Tuscan 7-bedroom property based in the romantic Italian countryside of Chianti, between the iconic cities of Florence and Siena. Less than 15 minutes from the region’s main town of Castellina, the villa offers you all the tranquillity and privacy of rural Tuscany without feeling remote. Recently refurbished and updated, this beautiful home offers you all the modern comforts within a classic Italian home.

Castellina is one of the oldest towns in the area and is rich in charm and culture. Wandering the narrow cobblestone streets and admiring the spectacular views, you find yourself relaxing to a slower pace of life. A town filled with such history is bound to boast some interesting features – Via delle Volte, an underground tunnel, runs the length of the town and offers a refreshing respite from the midday heat while still being able to visit the many shops and trattorias.

The vibrant cities of Siena and Florence are well within your reach on the days you crave the buzz of a bigger town. Florence is known for its breathtaking beauty and romantic Renaissance architecture. Some of the incredible buildings, including the Duomo, Basilica of Santa Maria and Pitti Palace, date back as far as medieval times. The Academia and Uffizi Galleries are home to remarkable paintings and sculptures by some of the world’s most famous artists.

There are many other quaint villages to explore nestled among the rolling Tuscan hills, the most notable of which include Panzano, Greve, Gaiole and Radda. One of the most memorable things to do in Italy includes visiting some of the notable local vineyards. Our concierge service can organize a private tour to some of the most exclusive boutique producers, learning about how it is made and sampling some of the finest local wines.

Set on a three-acre estate including a mature olive grove, Villa Amarika is the perfect choice for a large group looking to escape the stresses of modern-day life and immerse themselves in the Tuscan experience. By sitting in the furnished patio, you can gain a sense of peace from the spectacular views of rows of vines stretching as far as the eye can see. A sundeck furnished with rustic wrought iron furniture and thick, soft pillows is an attractive space for your friends and family to sit out and soak up the sun. The stone pool is just a few steps away for a refreshing swim, followed by a delicious poolside cocktail under one of the sun umbrellas. An outdoor stone kitchen with a BBQ grill could make for a great evening cooking up a storm for your guests while still being able to partake in the conversation. Once the sun sets over the distant hills, the evening doesn’t have to end. Gather around the fire pit as the stars slowly come out, sharing a bottle of local wine you picked up on your trip that day.

The elegant casual vibe of the villa invites your guests into the space to relax. A cosy sitting room, including a large smart TV, is a comfy spot to settle in during the colder months. A generous kitchen with ample seating is a great space to have breakfast before starting the day or evening enjoying a casual dinner with your friends and family on the day the weather isn’t cooperating. Equipped with all the tools required to make a delicious meal inspired by the local cuisine, you could even book a cooking class lead by a local chef from the comfort of your villa. You can sit down to this gourmet dinner in the formal dining room upstairs or at the picturesque outdoor dining table under the wisteria.

There is plenty to keep your group entertained on the days you feel like staying closer to home. Between the private heated pool, bocce court, ping pong table and video game console, your younger guests will never have a dull moment. The fitness room is also a great option for anyone looking to stay active after indulging in all the incredible local food.

The winning combination of style and comfort makes this villa the perfect option for either a large family or a group of friends. The ideal location and stunning scenery are bound to be a memorable setting for your perfect Italian escape.
