Apartment overview - owner's description

Roccaforte is an elegant 120 sq. m. apartment, on several levels, and is the restoration of a medieval tower house, capable of holding up to 4 persons with 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. The house has modern furniture as well as Wi-Fi, air conditioning and central heating. Outdoors, you will find a private garden with a charming raised pool, a furnished pergola and a barbecue. Ideal for those looking to relax or for couples.

Outdoor Areas and Swimming Pool
The outdoor area is a small, enclosed corner of paradise, private and completely enclosed. You will find a small kitchen shaded by the pergola, which has a curious marble table, wrought-iron chairs, a barbecue for outdoor meals and a small bathroom. The small but charming raised pool 3x1.80 m and 0.55 m deep, is perfect for hot summer days. From the garden you can reach a small washing room and a small bathroom.

Interior
The house is on three floors and has been restored with a fresh, modern style, in contrast with the classic feel of the hamlet, whilst maintaining some traditional Tuscan aspects like the stone facade and wood-beamed ceilings. The main entrance leads to the modern kitchen, completely equipped, as well as to the living/dining room with accessories and some renovated antique furniture, like the refurbished majolica stove. A modern iron staircase leads up to the loft, with a double bed, closet and bookcase. From the loft you can reach the lower floor, where you will find a large bathroom with shower, in marble with an old stonework wall (original wall of the ancient castle) , as well as a double bedroom with access to the garden.

Location
The apartment is in the medieval Castle of Tignano, a small treasure immersed in Chianti’s hills. Access is only on foot, via the ancient porta which leads to the small square with a handful of houses, a small church and an ancient water tank. Public parking is 100 metres from the property.

Activities and Distances
