Tuscany, Siena Province, Italy
LE NOSTRE PORTE SONO APERTE.
Camporsevoli is a beautiful hillside estate surrounded by lush woods and complete with several farmstead villas, a tower, village church and courthouse, all dating back to the medieval age, when it was a strategic location disputed between the Papal State and Tuscan dominions. Two Etruscan tombs are preserved in the cellars of the village! Lead by the Marchese and Marchesa Grossi di Camporsevoli, the hospitable family has owned the picturesque Tuscan hamlet since the end of the 17th century. Situated on the border of Southern Tuscany and Umbria there are expansive views of the region, and for day trips the riches of Siena, Florence, Chianti, Montepulciano and Assisi are less than two hours away.
The property is comprised of FIVE main buildings- La Capanne, Casa del Neri, Casa di Enrico, la Canonica and Il Poderino, as well as the private residences of the Grossi family, Palazzo Di Giustizia (The Courthouse), THE ATTICO APARTMENT and the villa's chapel & clock tower.

La Capanne (Capanne means “shack” in Italian but it is anything but!) features five bedrooms and bathrooms over three floors, finished is a sophisticated yet comfortable style, with a bright kitchen, a large sitting area with fireplaces and a garden and luxurious pool outside.
Le Capanne (400 sq m) sits one kilometer below the hamlet of Camporsevoli and is an independent home surrounded by its own fenced in garden and private pool. Built on the slope of the hill and divided on three levels, it provides ample private space for larger groups of friends or family.
The five double bedrooms and five bathrooms are divided on the three floors, with the master suite on the topmost level. The large sitting room, dining room and kitchen all have French doors that open onto the garden. A smaller sitting room on the top floor provides a quieter place for television and reading. Both the downstairs living room and upstairs TV room have open fireplaces.
Casa del Neri
Casa del Neri, situated near to the family villa, has four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The kitchen and dining room, complete with open fireplace are above the sitting room, which opens to the outdoor el fresco dining area. Surrounded by cypress, it is a beautiful quiet place to relax.
Casa del Neri (250 sq mt) is in the hamlet of Camporsevoli. It has a private fenced-off area with lounge chairs under a shady tree, perfect for relaxing, and a wooden table and chairs for outdoor dining.
Four comfortable double bedrooms (two on each floor) — each with its own bathroom — provide accommodation for 8 people. Kitchen and dining room are on the first floor, whereas the sitting room is on the ground floor with direct outdoor access. Both dining and sitting room feature open fireplaces.
The pool is a short walk up a cypress lined path which makes it supremely peaceful.
Casa di Enrico
Casa di Enrico is a smaller but gorgeous building with vaulted ceilings, spacious kitchen and sitting room with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Casa Di Enrico shares a garden area behind the building with La Canonica.
Casa di Enrico was restored in the 800s when work on the main villa was begun and the Grossi family needed accommodation during the process. For this reason - notwithstanding the fact that it's a smaller and simpler house - the two bedrooms still maintain delightful frescoed decorations on the vaulted ceilings.
On the first floor of the building (i.e. not ground floor), the apartment is reached by an internal staircase. It offers a rather large and spacious kitchen with a dining table, a comfortable sitting room with working fireplace and two bedrooms. One has an enormous double bed (can be split in two twins) and another one has twin beds. The two rooms share a bathroom with a built in shower box.
Together with La Canonica it shares a small garden behind the building.
La Canonica was originally built as the residence of the parish priest, but is now completely renovated, with wooden floors, a comfortable sitting room with wood burning stove, kitchen and adjoining dining room, bathroom with deep tub, and three bedrooms.
La Canonica was the very first house to be rented in Camporsevoli. It was completely renovated and now offers lovely wooden floors in place of the tiles while maintaining the rooms with antique terracotta floors.
On the first floor of the building (i.e. not ground floor), the apartment is reached by an internal staircase which lands in a large and spacious sitting room with and antique wood burning stove and pleasant dining area on one side of the room. The kitchen is comfortable and well equipped. There are three bedrooms: a large double bedroom, one with twin beds and a delightfully welcoming single room. The bedrooms all share one bathroom with bathtub and shower curtain.
Together with La Canonica it shares a small garden behind the building.
Il Poderino is our most recent restoration project, completed in the summer of 2014. It's a splendid farmhouse, formerly used as the stables for the horses in Cmaporsevoli.
The restoration involved a large consolidation of the house, built overlooking a breathtaking view. Padroni is an independent house, 1 km below the hamlet of Camporsevoli, accessed by a private road that offers total independence and privacy. It's divided on two floors following the slope of the hill therefore both floors have direct access to the garden.
The lower floor hosts a very large living room, with open fireplace and reading / TV corner, 2 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Both these bedrooms on the lower floor have French windows onto the garden.
On the upper floor you will find a large kitchen with separate laundry room, large dining room with open fireplace and other two double bedrooms, again each with ensuite bathrooms. The bedrooms divided on two floors, offer privacy and independence.
The third floor of the Central Villa of Camporsevoli has been previously reserved for family use only. It is accessible by a separate entrance and boasts an incredible view. The apartment has three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, living room, library and eat-in kitchen and is decorated with beautiful antique furniture.
