This beautiful independent barn completed its restoration in 2010. Part of the Rocca estate, it is immersed in the hills of the Chianti Classico only 1.3 kms from town with all facilities, shops and restaurants. Easily reached on foot either along the main road, or by hiking up the path to town, this barn provides easy access to all the historic cities and towns of the region. Siena is at 19 kms and Firenze is at 32 kms. The barn is near another estate farmhouse but it is separated from it by hedges and walls. It offers a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside and the estate’s vineyards and olive groves. Above them, you can see the town itself. The barn is surrounded by furnished, paved terraces and has its own shaded parking area. A pathway leads from it to the main farmhouse located about 200 meters away, where the shared swimming pool is located. The pool measures 6 X 14 meters and offers a solarium terrace and furnishings. You can also reach the parking area near the pool with your car if you do not feel like walking. Guests can purchase Chianti Classico wines, extra virgin olive oil, Vinsanto, and Grappa of their own production in their shops and office, where guests can also use the internet connection and have the owners book their restaurants for them or just provide them with places to visit in the region.

The barn is built on the side of a hill and has several entrances. Main access is from the terrace nearest to the parking area. Private entrance is into a spacious living room with fireplace, satellite TV with DVD and CD player. Through an open brick arch in the living room is the dining room, which has glass doors to the side terrace area that is furnished with large table and chairs and is ideal for al fresco dinners.

Another archway separates the dining room from the kitchen, which, in turn, also has glass door to the outside terrace with barbecue. The kitchen is fully equipped with large gas range (6 flames), fan-forced convection oven, dishwasher and fridge with freezer. A door in the kitchen opens into the utilities room with washing machine and washbasin.

In the living room, next to the fireplace, is a hall with two doors: one is to a double bedroom (bed can be divided into twins on request) and the other opens into a complete bathroom with shower stall and window. The bedroom has a door to the rear terrace facing west.

Two short sets of stairs, one from the living room, and the other from the kitchen, meet on a short landing, and from there lead up to the first floor sleeping section of the barn. At the top of the stairs is a landing with two doors, one facing the stairs, one to the right, and a hall to the left with another two doors. The first door opens into the spacious master bedroom with large panoramic arched doors that open onto the north terrace.

The terrace has a secluded niche to one side that is furnished and basically private to this room. Another large window in this bedroom is closed by cross-laid brickwork in full respect of typical Tuscan traditional barn structures. This bedroom has a sitting room area with double sofa bed. The room is enriched by original architectural elements. A door opens onto its complete, ensuite private bathroom with shower stall and window.

The door to the right at the top of the stairs opens into a spacious suite facing east. It has a sitting room/study with double sofa bed, and an open arch that separates this section from the double bed. Across from the door to the suite is a complete bathroom with both bathtub and separate shower stall and window.

To the left, the first door opens into a spacious double bedroom with wrought iron bed, large window opening to the west, and cross-laid brickwork. There is an ensuite complete bathroom with shower stall and window. The second door on the left opens into a double bedroom (bed can be divided into twins on request), large window and complete ensuite bathroom with shower stall.
