Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Tenuta Cona is a sumptuous, elegant estate in the heart of Chianti: a beautiful eighteenth-century villa surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and rolling farmland. This villa is among the most beautiful in central Italy, with an intriguing history, this aesthetically excellent home was protected during wartime bombing by great housing works of art.

Today this classically beautiful villa is subdivided into six apartments, and two villas, ranging from the “Piccolo” apartment which is ideal for a couple, as a romantic hideaway, or a couple with a child, to the stunning Case Villa which accommodates sixteen guests.

The estate comprises a wine tasting barn, as well as its olive oil production; Tenuta Cona offers all the wonders of a private holiday home in the richest and cultured part of Tuscany, whilst providing an array of amenities that come with the more extensive estate complex: cooking classes for groups of four people, dinner on demand by virtue of private chef - trekking, mountain biking or horse-riding, these actives can all be arranged via the villa.

No request is too much effort at Tenuta Cona: the immaculately maintained gardens, pristine pool and patio, an array of outdoor dining spots with beautiful views will ensure a stylish and relaxed stay.

Each of the apartments has its own character and style; finished thoughtfully, with impeccable taste, sympathetic to the original building and architecture, yet offering every modern comfort, from wifi, to coffee machine, to DVD television with satellite and dishwasher, each home is designed for guests every convenience, whilst offering a relaxed and laid back sense of luxury.

Original features such as exposed timber beams, flagstone flooring and original stone, along with a pretty, modern neutral palette of fresh whites, pistachio greens and greys, these homes are home-like while being delightfully elegant, full of original charm and designer flair!

The separate yet communal set of these apartments make them ideal for a group for families travelling together, or a family travelling with grandparents, or extended family: likewise, the setting is perfect for anniversaries, celebrations or weddings. Each apartment has its own private outdoor space, including lawns, al fresco dining spot and barbecue.

Their rustic charm characterises the smaller apartments; they retain the spirit of the original raw materials and beautiful authentic architecture - they blend cosiness with comfort; quality, however, is not compromised. Cotton bed linen, fluffy towels, solid wood furnishings, top range kitchen appliances - guests will enjoy privacy and seclusion within the convenience of a fully staffed estate.

The larger villas offer high ceilings and well proportioned open plan living spaces, ideal for a large group or family to come together at the end of the day and enjoy a meal prepared by the on-site chef or self catered, making use of all the unusual cured meats, beautiful fresh produce and the estate’s own olive oil and wines, or, making use of the barbecue on a balmy summer’s night will be a hit with all the holiday party.

Each of these homes has an abundance of character; with many references to the region and area - beautiful artwork, a timeless and classic take on interior design, so aligned with the original features and charm of the building, while being fresh, contemporary and chic.

Take the most substantial villa, Villa One, the open plan dining room is set within a beautiful sloping timber ceilinged room, with terracotta tiles on the floor and enormous open stone fireplace, antique timber furnishings jostle alongside the best in Italian designer kitchen appliances, and quality fabrics and soft furnishings. The farmhouse feel is retained, within the spirit of a luxurious holiday home.

Villa Two offers a stunning outdoor dining space, panoramic views in absolute tranquillity, with such pretty floral fabrics and elegant antique furnishings internally, along with a farmhouse style kitchen.

For a very authentic Tuscan experience, with an array of activities and classes organised on site, within easy proximity to all pre-eminent great Art cities of northern Italy, within comfortable and impeccably stylish surroundings, whether it be for a couple, family, or larger group, Tenuta Cona can meet guests every desire!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The estate at Tenuta Cona is ideal for children of all ages. The excellent, expansive grounds and lawns, with surrounded woodlands and many hidden spots for exploring, will offer hours of discovery and fun for children.

The pool is stunning and is safely enclosed in its area, with elegant day beds and sun lounging space around it, children will enjoy hours of splashy fun, or perfect their moves while parents can look on, enjoying a cold beer or good book.

With access to a private chef, children’s meals can easily be provided, whether they have adventurous or straightforward palates!

For day trips, among the highlights for children in Tuscany, Pinocchio Park Collodi is a great day out - Collodi is home to a theme park dedicated to Pinocchio and his adventures, with activities like literary itineraries, buildings and sculptures set amidst the greenery, art exhibitions and illustrations, puppet making workshops and more. Rather than being a Disney style park, it is more a cultural and natural environment, very Italian in style.

Pistoia zoo is located in the hills near Pistoia and is one of the most famous zoos in Italy; covering a space of seven hectares and an array of species for a fun and educational day out.

The water park, Aqua Village is located in Follonica, near Grosetto, and offers a range of slides and rides from gentle toddler splash pools to more thrill-seeker level for older children.

From hiking, to horse riding, to waterspouts, to cultural heritage, children of all ages will learn so much from a visit to Tuscany: what could be more enchanting than a day of dolphin watching in the reserve known as Pelagos Sanctuary in Viareggio, followed by a meal in a local hilltop restaurant - offering sublime, flavoursome local specialities followed by fantastic gelato and cream filled pastry treats that the region is known for.
