The property is located discreetly on a hilltop and forms part of a traditional Tuscan hamlet called San Martino Al Vento. From here you have a beautiful view over sweet rolling hills that stretch over the landscapes filled with vineyards, cypresses, olive trees and castles – all within walking distance from quality restaurants and hotels.
The entire hamlet of San Martino Al Vento consists of approx. 20-30 houses; mostly private, as well as a small B&B called Le Antiche Rime. About 10 minutes’ walk from San Martino you find the village of Castagnoli and the winery Rocca di Castagnoli. In addition to wine production, they run a very nice hotel with a lovely restaurant and a wine bar that is open for wine tasting. In Castagnoli there is also a local osteria with the opportunity to eat out on the terrace.
Borgo San Martino Chianti consists of approx. 79 acres with fenced boundaries. The property borders to Castello di Brolio belonging to the famous Ricasoli family. This is the cradle of Chianti Classico and the home of Italy's first prime ministers, Bettino Ricasoli, who invented the formula for the Chianti Classico wine in 1716. Today the Ricasoli winery produces over two million bottles of wine a year.
Each unit at Borgo San Martino has its own private garden with terrace and pergola. The rest of the area will be developed as a park with a pool, lighted pathways, plants, lawns and parking in a private area outside the buildings. Each unit will have a co-ownership of the common areas, gardens and facilities.
