In 2017 the Boselli Family traveled to Tuscany for a weeklong bespoke itinerary of exciting adventure and indulgent relaxation. They stayed at Tenuta Ceccatelli, a 17th Century Estate found amidst the breathtaking hills of the world-famous Chianti Classico wine region. This elegant Tuscan farmhouse can accommodate up to 10 guests and features treasures like the authentic working fireplace from the Middle Ages, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a custom designed Tuscan kitchen with working fireplace. Finely crafted Tuscan antiques – like large mirrors, lovely tables, chairs, sideboards, and hand-carved wood and wrought iron chandeliers – fill the farmhouse to create the perfect balance of old world charm and modern sophistication.

The Boselli Family was welcomed to the estate with an authentic Tuscan meal cooked by a private chef, served outside Tenuta’s terrace underneath a wisteria-clad pergola. They enjoyed quality time together while being introduced to the true flavors of Chianti.   On the days they wished to relax and unwind under the Tuscan sun, the Boselli’s reaped the benefits of the estate’s outdoor amenities including the swimming pool surrounded by sun beds and umbrellas, several alfresco dining areas, as well as, the bocce ball court and ping pong table – all framed by panoramic views of noble vineyards, silver olive groves and wild oak forests perfect for long walks and exploration.

The location of Tenuta Ceccatelli (approximately half-way between Siena and Florence) also made the estate the ideal home base for days filled with exciting bespoke activities like their Custom Bike Tour through the winding hills of Gaiole in Chianti, tastings at Italy’s oldest castles and winery where Chianti Classico wine was created, and guided visits to the nearby towns.  The Tenuta is the perfect place for families, groups and romantics looking for a private retreat in the Tuscan countryside.
