Il Cardinale



Description


Welcome to Villa Cardinale, an exceptional 11-bedroom historic grand mansion set in a beautiful olive oil and wine-producing estate, just 40 minutes south of the beautiful Tuscan city of Siena. Throughout its storied past, this villa was once the country home of aristocratic dynasties. It can now lay home to the idyllic Italian escape of your dreams. Having been carefully renovated to bring this breathtaking property back to its original magnificence, the villa now has all the luxurious modern amenities you could possibly desire while still maintaining its former splendour.

At Il Cardinale, it is possible to immerse yourself in the unspoiled splendour of rural Italy. An elegant cyprus-lined boulevard welcomes you to the imposing magnificence of the villa. The surrounding manicured landscape offers guests complete privacy. For those looking to completely unwind, there is no better place to relax than sunbathing poolside, cocktail in hand, followed by an invigorating swim in the villa's private pool. After indulging in all the local cuisine more active guests can spend the afternoon playing a friendly game of tennis on the villa's private court, working up a sweat in the well-equipped gym area or even hiking through the nearby hills. In the courtyard, a large patio is set up with large umbrellas to offer some shade. You are bound to take many of your evening meals here, featuring the bounty of the organic vegetable garden, which is yours to enjoy.

The spacious interiors are elegantly furnished with original paintings, rich fabrics, hand-crafted antiques and heirlooms. The unique architectural details including original floor tiles, stone fireplaces and painted walls soaring to high ceilings exude the elegance of Tuscan country style. The entrance hall featuring a stunning coffered ceiling, grand piano and stylish seating arrangements, is a great space for those looking to entertain. A formal dining room can easily seat up to 22 people and is ideally located adjacent to the fully equipped country kitchen. The rustic kitchen table is where you can enjoy a casual breakfast before setting out for the day. A small drawing room with a luxurious red seating area offers guests a separate space to sit and relax.

Cardinale's incredible location in the heart of the Italian countryside, within close driving distance to some of the best sites to be found from Tuscany to the Amalfi Coast. The surrounding rolling hills are dotted with charming Italian towns and historic spots to explore. The towns of San Gimignano and Volterra are two beautiful fortress cities within easy driving distance from one another, known for their incredible skyline and alabaster artefacts respectively. The medieval walled city of Monteriggioni is another incredible town to explore for those interested in Italy's rich culture and art alike. Built in the 13th century, the town is believed to be one of the best-preserved ancient fortifications in Italy and scholars, architects, archaeologists as well as tourists flock to admire it. The walled hilltop medieval town of Montepulciano, the picturesque Cetona, the charming thermal villages of San Casciano dei Bagni and Bagno Vignoni are also well worth a visit.

The city of Siena is a popular destination not to be missed during your trip to Tuscany. The charming cobbled stone streets and historic centre of the pedestrian city are best surveyed on foot. A masterpiece of medieval architecture, there are many museums, galleries and botanic gardens to visit while you are there. Be sure to time your trip with the world-renowned Palio di Siena horse race that takes place in the city on the 2nd of July and 16th of August each year. This exhilarating and colourful event involves seventeen horses, each representing a part of the City of Siena, galloping around the shell-shaped focal point of the city, Piazza del Campo at break-neck speeds. This local event of epic proportions is one of the most unique things to do in Italy.

The region of Tuscany is best known as a producer of some of the finest foods and wines in Italy. Why not allow our concierge service book a guided tour around some of the region's most notable wineries as well as some of the lesser-known boutique vineyards. A private car can take you through the Chianti region, Montepulciano or Brunello di Montalcino hill towns tasting some of the local wines, learning about its production before enjoying an incredible meal in an even more exceptional setting.

This old-world style mansion is a must stay for any large group looking to experience Italian tradition as well as modern quality and comforts. The sprawling grounds offer a tranquil escape from the stresses of daily life. Il Cardinale's central location is the perfect base for anyone looking to absorb all of Tuscany's cultural highlights.
