About Batignano

 

Villa Batignano. …A beautifully restored 18th. century farmhouse with adjoining barn sitting on the top of its own hill in southern Tuscany midway between Siena and the coast close to the wonderful Alberese National Park.

 

Villa Batignano. …A beautifully restored 18th. century farmhouse with adjoining barn sitting on the top of its own hill in southern Tuscany midway between Siena and the coast close to the wonderful Alberese National Park.

The 'L' shaped property comprises of two units which can be either interconnecting or entirely independent, the Main house which is more traditionally refurbished and the 'Barn' which has an entirely minimalistic/modern decor with large glass windows.

The Main house and the Barn may be rented by the week together or the Barn can be let separately. Each is self contained and fully equipped, and the whole property is ideal for occupation by two families (or a large group of friends). Land around the buildings extends to three acres, and there is a large swimming pool 50 metres from the house. There are stunning typically Tuscan views in all directions over adjacent farmland and woods

For groups of up to 8 guests we let the 'Barn'. Please note the Main house will not be occupied if the 'Barn' is let. Guests staying in the 'Barn' will have complete privacy and sole use of the swimming pool.

The main house is built on two floors in stone and brick, with chestnut beamed ceilings and terracotta floors throughout. It can sleep eight guests on the first floor in four bedrooms and two guests downstairs.

Between the main house and the 'Barn' is an enclosed terrace and covered dining area alongside a large herb garden for alfresco dining, in addition both the main house and the Barn have their own private terraces for sitting and relaxing. There is also outdoor chess and bar football.

The garden is mostly grass with lavendar edged brick pathways leading down to the swimming pool ( 50 meters from the house) which overlooks open countryside, there are steps down into the pool and a sunbathing area with sunbeds.

Car

It is essential for visitors to have a car as the nearest town with a large supermarket is ten kilometres away. In the nearby village of Monte Antico there is a first-class bar/ristorante/pizzeria, but little else, although fresh vegetables and local wine can be bought just outside the village from a local farmer.

Grosseto is a half-hour drive, with a wonderful covered daily market for fish, meat, cheeses and all kinds of local fruit and vegetables, and sophisticated shopping and eating in the historic town centre. Siena is 45 minutes away by road.

Train

There is a station at Monte Antico with trains to Siena, Florence and Grosseto. The service is infrequent (but fun).

Air

We think the best airport for Batignano is PISA, two hours door to door on a very good modern road. You could also use Florence Airport (Meridiana from Gatwick) but the drive to Batignano from there is not so pleasant. Rome Airports are also around 2 hours away depending on traffic state and time of year.
