About the villa
Charming, comfortable and utterly Tuscan, La Cassetta delle Statue is set amid an olive grove, on the edge of the Montagnola Senese. Just 14km from Siena and 5km from shops and a restaurant in Sovicille, the cottage is perfectly peaceful and has a private entrance to a Holy Wood, sprinkled with statues by Guiseppe Mazzuoli, and once a place of quiet contemplation for Cardinal Flavio Chigi. Terraced into the hillside, the villa’s accommodation is on the upper level and the layout provides an ideal arrangement for two couples or for a family with older children. There are three double bedrooms and an open-plan room with kitchen, sitting and dining areas; the other has one bedroom and a small living room with kitchenette; each bedroom has its own bath or shower room. With white walls, timber raftered ceilings and country style furniture, the cottage is designed with disarming simplicity and sits in wonderfully colourful gardens with an al fresco dining terrace, and a pretty pool in a stone paved terrace, with cushioned cane loungers and dappled tree shade.
From approximately October to December it is the traditional hunting season in the rural areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio and hunters are free to roam about the fields and woods belonging to private properties as long as they keep 150 meters away from houses.
