Villa Manciano is a tastefully renovate Farmhouse Villa with 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.  The total size of the accommodations is 401.5sq. metres.  The land / garden area is just over 11,925sq. meters. 

(Yes, that's huge!). 

The property is located few kilometres from Castiglion Fiorentino, and exactly in a village called Manciano (birthplace of Roberto Benigni actor known for the film "Life is Beautiful". The place is surrounded by the green fields of Valdichiana valley with vineyards, olive groves and one or two other farmhouses.

Restoration works in 2006 transformed the ruins of an old ruined farmhouse into a luxury property with three apartments. Each apartment has an independent entrance, private outside space and barbecue.

As mentioned, in total there are 9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms + 3 kitchens.   And there is the possibility to easily convert the house into one large family home...

The land, which is totally fenced with two entrance gates, measures 11,925sq.m. The swimming pool is fenced for security and is child and pet safe.  It measures 11 metres long.

There is a long drive leading to the Villa and ample parking space for many cars (if needed).

The landscaped gardens are kept in perfect condition with its enormous lawns, cypresses, other trees, and decorative plants. It offers several spots where one can relax in privacy, switch off from the everyday, hectic life, read a book and enjoy an aperitivo.

At night the gardens are illuminated, warm and very beautiful.

The old stone built part of the building dates from the early 1900's.  It has been transformed into two apartments.  At the same time as the original restoration, the property was extended (the yellow colour more modern part you can see in the pictures).  The extension was tastefully done in Tuscan style with all the typical details – exposed beams, terracotta floors, solid wood, double glazed windows and doors, old style sanitary ware and tiles in the bathrooms.

Each apartment has its own, fully equipped and custom-made kitchen.

The old part has been divided horizontally into two units. The one on the ground floor features a sitting room with kitchenette and fireplace, three bedrooms (one en-suite) plus a second bathroom. The first floor, with access through external staircase and loggia, is divided into a sitting room with kitchenette and huge wood stove, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Again one of the bedrooms is en-suite).

The newly built part is on two levels. Ground floor has a sitting room, dining room with kitchenette, bedroom, and bathroom. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level.

There is also a large in-ground spiral wine cellar with room for hundreds of bottles (we haven’t counted how many!!)

The utilities include alarm system, automatic irrigation, artisan water well with 20,000 litre water storage.  Plus a further underground domestic water storage facility near the house, from where the water goes to the osmosis purification system and, after purification, is strored in another tank with potable drinking water.

It is a newly restored property with introduction of modern technological solutions, offering all the required comforts. The conditions are perfect and the location, with easy access, is very central. Castiglion Fiorentino with all services, including railway station, is at 6.5 km distance. Cortona – 18 km, Arezzo – 19.5 km, Montepulciano – 31 km, Montalcino – 56 km, Siena – 62 km, Perugia with international airport in continuous expansion – 67 km, Florence – 80 km. So most famous places in central Tuscany and Umbria can be reached in less than one hour of driving.

At about one kilometre there is a small aeroclub, where it is possible to land with smaller aircrafts, take lessons or rent a plane or helicopter. The club also has a restaurant/pizzeria.

And, in the near future a new High Speed train station will be realized at a distance of about 20 km. This would mean getting to Rome in 1 hour and 15 minutes and about 03 minutes to the centre of Florence, one hour and 50 minutes to Bologna and 3.5 hours to Milan.


Fully renovated and continually improved and maintained by a careful and fully involved owner...
