Organic Olive Oil Farm
10 minutes from Castellina in Chianti, in a quiet Chianti hills position is this 27.4-hectare organic country estate with working Agriturismo and olive grove. The buildings of the estate (roughly 1,300 sqm, all restored in 2015) includes bedrooms for guests, an independent guesthouse and an olive mill. The large organic olive grove (11.4 hectares) can produce up to 2,500 kg of extra-virgin olive oil per year.
The main farmhouse has a surface area of 985 sqm – 10,598 sqft and is a large building on three floors, with many independent accesses. The building, partially used as guest accommodation, features several cosy and welcoming living areas, wardrobes for the guests, ten bedrooms, twelve bathrooms and an equipped fitness area.
Adjacent is the olive mill with a surface area of 230 sqm – 2,475 sqft which is equipped with the processing plant, storage rooms and bottling line. On the upper floor is an office with a bathroom while on the ground floor there is a small reception area with a tasting room and a shop where products from the estate are for sale.
A short distance from the main complex, amidst the olive trees, is a guesthouse (85 sqm – 915 sqft) made up of a living/dining area, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The complex was fully restored in 2015, preserving the buildings in their original style and look thanks to a series of carefully planned works, carried out only with original and appropriate materials. The external stone walls have been cleaned and valorized, while inside it was decided to keep the traditional features such as the wooden beams and the terracotta flooring.
For the electrical supply, the estate has a 10-kW photovoltaic system that can also accumulate 10 more kW of power to use when needed.
The estate covers a total surface of roughly 27.4 hectares. All around the country house, the land is marked by the traditional dry-stone walls. There is a well-maintained garden dotted with flowerbeds and decorative plants (6,000 sqm). Just a little below the farmhouse is the oval-shaped swimming pool (13 × 8 m) surrounded by a stone-paved sunbathing area.
The large organic olive grove (11.4 hectares) is made up of Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo varieties. A blend of the three olives produces an excellent extra-virgin olive oil, with a yearly production of around 2,500 kg of oil (equaling 2,730 litres).
A small section of arable land (approximately 1.0 hectare) would be suitable to plant a small vineyard capable of producing a very good Chianti wine which could be served to the guests together with the oil. The remaining areas is mixed woodland (13.3 ha), grazing land and gardens (0.9 ha).
The property is also crossed by a small stream, flowing all year long and feeding a small pond.
The property is also working as an Agriturismo and provides its guests with a beautiful pool and a fitness area. Crops and olive oil produced in the estate are served to the guests or sold directly via the shop.
It would also be possible, if wanted, to use the property as a large prestige private residence and keeping the olive oil production running.
