A meticulous renovation has made it possible to enjoy comfortable and welcoming rooms, full of history.  The ideal retreat for those who like to devote to the discovery of ancient Tuscany. Castles, churches, monasteries, museums and green forests surround the area and offer the visitor a feeling of tranquillity and peace: the priceless artistic heritage and the spectacle of nature are ready to be lived.

the park

The area outside the Villa is characterized by a colourful garden, surrounded by a beautiful park full of oaks, chestnut trees and cypresses.  It also features an original cedar of Lebanon.
 
Comfortable rooms and surrounding wineries offer the possibility to organize wedding receptions, buffets, cocktails and truly unforgettable events.

THE RENOVATION

Furnishings reflect Superplum studio’s philosophy, that is the design and realization of refined dwellings, both in terms of spaciousness and furniture. The goal is to bring back to life objects and material which would otherwise  be destroyed or removed from the market.   Our civilisation, even though currently so far from its origins, lays its roots on the idea of recovery and recycling.  In the past, nothing had to be thrown out or wasted and this was true for both food and common everyday objects.  Today’s consumerism led to its most extreme, that is piles of garbage and a wrong attitude towards what “used to be”.  If it is easier to buy rather than to assemble materials and objects with creativity, than man will chose the easiest way…until all sources will run out.  In contrast to this, Superplum aims at thinking about the meaning of both spaces surrounding us and objects filling them by uniting contemporaneity and past and mixing up different languages with the clear goal that we must, whenever and wherever possible, recover and recycle in a modern way.  This might imply the use of poor quality materials, which expertise, craftsmanship and passion can skilfully re-elaborate.   An example of this is the yellow lamp of “dress light up” collection:  it is part of a collection of 8 lamps made out of cashmere knitting that haute couture industry discarded due to small defects.  We believe that these very reasons make them unique.

THE STRUCTURE OF THE VILLA

The main body of Villa Gatteschi, on the ground floor, consists of a welcoming lobby, a kitchen at guests’ disposal and a beautiful breakfast/dining room overlooking the garden. On the first floor there are two reception halls or dining rooms and a large living room with frescoed ceilings.  A staircase leads to the second floor, consisting of 6 bedrooms, with all amenities and antique furniture.

BEDROOM CARLOTTA

This room is named after one of the noble women belonging to the Gatteschi’s dinasty, as shown on the board in the main lobby.
It is located on the second floor, on the left side, in front of Room Matilde.
It features a double bed with two antique nightstands made out of old chairs with an original lamp inserted on them.  
The en suite bathroom, preserving its original shower, offers first quality linen and toiletries.
The decor reflects the philosophy of Superplum studio, the leitmotif of the entire restructuring. There are neither television nor air conditioning;  heating is central.
The room overlooks the beautiful countryside of Casentino alongside the road.

bedroom MATILDE

This double bedroom is located on the second floor, right across room Matilde.  It is particularly enriched with recycled items such as old farm machinery or tools, all perfectly renovated in every detail to provide the room with its unique character.  The bathroom is refined yet unpretentious; towels and toiletries are included.
Just like in room Carlotta, there are neither TV nor air conditioning. 
The view is lost in the countryside up to the Casentino  churches, all accessible from the street below.

bedroom CAMILLA

The bedroom CAMILLA is located  at the very end of a wonderful Fiorenzuola stone staircase.
It is very spacious and bright and can accommodate an additional bed.  It is perfect for families as well as for romantic getaways.   The en suite bathroom is equipped with all you need: shower, bath linen and toiletries. 
The  view from the two windows-  both overlooking  the park- makes it easy to forget about the absence of TV and air conditioning. 

bedroom ISABELLA

Bedroom ISABELLA is indeed last but not least. 
It is dedicated to the youngest noble woman of Gatteschi’s family of this century.
You enter the suite through an old wooden door with a small hallway that allows access to the room and the bathroom.
It is the widest room of the building, the one chosen by most couples to fulfil their love dream with a reception at the Villa.
The chandelier, the beautiful 18th Century wardrobe and the view that you can enjoy from the room are all remarkable.
