LUPINO is a freestanding house in a incredibly beautiful position overlooking the entire valley. The house is set on the south side of a sunny Chianti hill, surrounded by cypress and oak trees. All details of the house were done with loving, tender, care and it shows. It is the perfect location for long walks through the quiet and untouched nature, a paradise for mountain bikers, fishermen and those who like to relax under the Tuscan sun.
A natural pool made of field stones and fed by a well belongs to the property. It is filled with fresh clean water from the mountain without any chemical additives. Its located approx. 400 meters from the house, positioned in a very romantic setting under old chestnut trees, with beautiful views, a paradise for children, or if you like to sunbath complete undisturbed. Nobody will see or interupt you here. The place is absolutly private. The closest village with all shops and restaurants is 3 km down the hill. Arezzo and Florence are distant 30 and 45 km and make for the perfect day-trip.
The all of the furniture is of very good quality, massive wood and blacksmith worked together to restore antique pieces from the owner´s family. The ceilings are done with old oak beams, the floors preserv the original Tuscan tiles ("cotto"), in the classic dark red color. The owner himself carefully renovated the place during the last 4 years. The location is unique; a real life postcard from Tuscany. All you see are grapes, olive groves, soft rolling hills off into the horizon, century old trees, flowers and the typical fieldstone walls to protect the hills. A little lake perfect for fishing is a 20 min. walk from the house.
