Villa Curiano, an organic agricultural estate
Villa Curiano is the center of one agricultural estate of 400 hectares dedicated to organic farming in the province of Siena. Located in the heart of the famous hills south of Siena, known as "Crete Senesi", UNESCO World Heritage cultural landscape, the Villa is 18 km from Siena and 20 km from Montalcino, internationally renowned for its Brunello wine.
The eye ranges from the Torre del Mangia and the bell tower of Siena to the hills of Montalcino with its medieval fortress, offering a breathtaking view.
Lovers of the Sienese landscape will be able to fully enjoy the contrasting beauty offered by nature: on the one hand the gentle development of the soft hills in a palette of colors ranging from dark green in spring to intense yellow in summer; on the other hand, the burnished earth, rough and rough with a color so surprising and characteristic that it deserved a specific name: the burnt Sienna.
Nature, history, art and wine they embrace Curiano to live fully an experience in the real Tuscany.
Villa di Curiano is located in small village of Curiano between Monteroni d'Arbia and Buonconvento on the Via Cassia. Its origins are very ancient as evidenced by various notarial deeds dating back to the 1079.
In a document of the 1290 a source is quoted at the top of the coast of 'Curliano', to be restored with stones and bricks, testimony of Curiano's role as "post" as refreshment point along the Francigena, the ancient Via that in the Middle Ages united Central Europe with Rome.
In the middle of the 14th century the presence of a 'Spedale' is witnessed, given with different fields and vineyards to the Dominican Fathers of Siena. The Spedale was a refuge to welcome the poor, the pilgrims and the religious 'of any order' who came along the path that led from Canterbury through France to Rome.
Sold by the Dominican Fathers towards the middle of the '600, with the obligation that the Spedale was left to welcome the poor and the pilgrims, Curiano then passed from the ownership of the Nini and Bandinelli, to the Sergardi until the Mocenni, at the beginning of the 20th century.
During the '900 the Estate was bought by the Collobiano family and then in the 1954 by the Masetti family and from these, by inheritance, passed to the current owner, the marquise Isabella Gaetani di Canossa.
Today Curiano is the beating heart of a biologically oriented farm, extended for around 400 hectares.
Villa Curiano has been recently restored to meet the needs of its guests and lead them into an experience that combines the charm of the countryside with the most modern comforts.
Eight bedrooms e eight bathrooms, one for guests and one for the pool, a large entrance on the ground floor and one on the first floor and two living rooms welcome guests into the villa, which is surrounded by a large garden with swimming pool.
