The villa that commands this Renaissance estate, once the property of the Bonsignori, stands at the end of a cypress-lined drive and is surrounded by undulating vines. The setting makes the heart sing. The architectural details are weighted with history, the fireplace is the largest in Tuscany, and the drawing room’s walls are strewn with ‘trompe l’oeil’. One half belongs to Signora Migone, the other is owned by her brother and shared by her son, who makes you feel you are family.Stroll past clipped hedges to the pool, walk from the door onto marked trails or into the hamlet for a delicious local meal. Don’t miss the treasures of Siena; it floats on a ridge six miles away.
