Castello di Grotti

The estate of Castello di Grotti is an organic farm in Tuscany southwest of Siena with several vacation rentals, ranging from apartment rentals to villas to small country houses.

Villa Ballati is a villa with accommodations for 10 guests and Ballatina is a 1 bedroom apartment on the first level that can be combined with the villa. The farmhouse Casa della Mucca has 2 apartments and La Guardiola is a 2 bedroom country house. Il Pozzarello is a four bedroom country house accommodating up to 8 guests.

All vacation rentals have recently been restored and are located within the estate of the castle. Situated on a hill, there are beautiful, peaceful views of the surrounding countryside, hills of Tuscany, Siena and Chianti in the distance.

Castello di Grotti is between the tiny village of Grotti and the small village of Ville di Corsano. Corsano is close by (less than 1 km) with a restaurant, bar, post office and supermarket. Castello di Grotti’s location is perfect for day trips to take advantage of all Tuscany has to offer – Siena (12 km), Arezzo (70 km), Florence (~70 km), Montepulciano, Montalcino, San Gimignano and the Chianti wine region.

Part of the estate is woodland with native Mediterranean trees and shrubs, such as oak, beech, heather, juniper and broom. The woodland provides shelter for porcupines, deer, wild boar, hare, pheasant and many other wild species. In the autumn the surrounding woodlands are abundant with mushrooms and often one will see many people hunting for fresh porcini or chanterelles.

Throughout the estate there are many roads and footpaths where one can take long walks or hikes through the natural countryside.

Many crops are cultivated on the estate and its vast property at the edge of the Crete Senesi. Wheat, corn and sunflowers are grown in and around the hilly area of Grotti and on the plain of the Merse River. In addition, the estate cultivates various olive groves. The olives are harvested in late autumn and early winter and are pressed to produce the precious olive oil, DOC whose denomination is "Olio extravergine Toscano."
