Wine estate in the Chianti area in Tuscany
Accommodation for between 37 and 49 people
Spacious exquisite farmhouse in the Chianti region
The wine estate Tenuta Lupinari is to be found in the Valdambra, one of the most attractive places in the Chianti area. The estate is located near the village of Bucine, in the province of Arezzo; and good starting point for visiting the art cities in this magical region, since it is in the middle of the 3 most beautiful cities in Tuscany: Florence at 45 km, Siena at 30 km and Arezzo at 30 km. In the area you can visit a lot of small charming villages too.
The hamlet dates back to the XVI century and after many years of careful restoration by the owners, from a place used for agricultural activities Tenuta Lupinari has become a luxury agritourism in the center of Tuscany, characterized by excellence services, familiarity, hospitality and a wide range of comfortable spacious and finely furnished accommodations.
Today it welcomes tourists who are looking for sublime landscapes and breathtaking views over the Tuscan hills.
The estate is surrounded by vineyards, from where an excellent Chianti Wine, called 'Le Torri' (you will discover the reason of this name when you will be there) is produced, and by an expanse of olive groves where a P.D.O. olive oil 'Primo di Lupinari' is made too.
The hamlet consists of a main building (where the B&B is), the restaurant, a hall (with Wi-Fi) and the bar, where every day you can taste homemade cakes or you can ask for your aperitif and enjoy it at dusk on the fascinating terrace. The rest of the Borgo is then divided in 10 different apartments.
On the estate you will also see a castle (where the owners lives), work of the brilliant architect Gino Coppedè (creator of the Coppedé district in Rome). Today he is renowned for having created a specific and unique style called the Coppedé Style.
For a holiday in complete freedom and for who likes absolute privacy, the 10 apartments of Tenuta Lupinari are the ideal solution, thanks to the wide spaces (from 80 to 250 m2), the refined decorations with the soft colors and the antique furniture that set the mood between classical antiquity and ease. Each apartment is provided with air conditioning in the bedrooms, independent heating system, kitchen or cooking corner, Satelite LCD TV 26” in the apartments for 2 people and TV 32” in the apartments for 4-6 people.
