Perks for the Parents

Renaissance charm melds with family-friendly Tuscany to produce a beautiful off-the-beaten-track residence in Brenna where you can appreciate views, drink local wine and explore Siena, Chianti and sleepy local trattoria. It’s the ideal place for an inspirational holiday with a slow travel feel: stroll to the village and back, cycle to the nearby river and nature reserve, or dine at a pizzeria nearby. The kitchen has a gas cooker, fridge and microwave oven.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great location for exploring family-friendly Tuscany - not just vineyards, but beaches (80km away), spas, horseback riding and river swimming too. The kids room has 2 twin beds and a baby crib is also available, along with a high chair. It is quiet at night. The bedrooms have a view on to the cultivated fields. There is a wood-fired pizza oven in the garden, perfect for creating do-it-yourself pizzas.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. There are hard floors throughout - typically terracotta tiles - and some steps outside the building in the garden and alfresco eating areas. There is central heating. The hosts have deliberately created a building in tune with the environment and surroundings and ask guests to respect it eg by using water consciously, turning off unnecessary lights and using natural ventilation where possible. Bikes are available.

About the Location

The residence is in Brenna, a little village with basic amenities 12km from Siena and 80km from the nearest beach and renowned spas. A good location for visiting classic Tuscany - Siena, Chianti, Val d’Orcia and ancient villages and landscapes. Siena is within cycling distance while Rosia nearby has shops, bars, restaurants and a pharmacy. Florence is the closest airport, around an hour away, with Pisa airport 2 hours away. Car hire is recommended but train could work too.

Style Notes

Classic Tuscan architecture with luxury touches. Villa Amedeo is part of a network of properties that respect the history, nature and culture of the place and its people. The furnishings and fittings have been chosen with great care, and the restoration preserved its identity, deliberately avoiding the introduction of items that are not inherent to the place, such as swimming pool, tennis courts or air conditioners.

Agostino P.
Member since December 09, 2014
Agostino Pacciani is a Paris based photojournalist whose photographss have been published in the press worldwide. He began his career in 1989, crossing theatres throughout Europe photographing ballet, dance, theatre and operas. His photographs, from the productions at the Palais Garnier to the theatre festivals at Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, have been published and exhibited in Europe and in the USA. In 1994 and 1995, the siege of Sarajevo radically changed his perspective and when he went to photograph daily life in wartime, he realized that this what he wanted to record henceforth in his work. His profoundly humane photographs are unique records of the war. After that, as a committed war photographer, he has covered events in Albania, in Kosovo, in sub-Saharan Africa, in Algeria, in Morocco, in Chile, in Brazil. In 1998 Pacciani made his first journey to the Gaza strip and returned several times, becoming a familiar figure camera in hand in the disaster zone. He revealed life in desperate circumstances, growing up in a war zone, working withing the constraints of a curfew and restrictions, family life during the Intifada, up to the inside life of militants. He has never stayed in hotels or humanitarian agencies but with the families he has befriended. Likewise in Kurdistan and Iraq where he spent the early months of 2003. Clandestine immigration from Morocco to Spain has been a subject of research. After the tsunami in December 2005, Pacciani went straight to Sri Lanka and Indonesia, sent by UNESCO. The war in Lebanon in 2006 brought Pacciani there for a unique kind of photographic docudrama about the different communities. Since, he has returned to Sri-Lanka and Sarajevo to report on post-catastrophe reconstruction and has completed an important series of in-depth photographs about Sicily. Pacciani’s work has been published in publications worldwide, including Géo, Figaro Magazine, Repubblica, New York Times Magazine, Newsweek and many others, His photographs have been shown in Washington, Sarajevo, Paris, Sienna and at UNESCO Born in Siena, Italy, Agostino Pacciani initially studied geology and discovered his passion for photography in New York. He has never looked back since and is based in Paris

Siena, Tuscany

Crazy horses and cobbled squares

Siena’s ravishing medieval architecture is usually lost on children. Pique their interest with an adventure up the bell tower, a gallop through the narrow streets and a gelato at half time. Jazz drifts through the air from the local jazz school and twice a year, ten men race around the square bareback on horses in a wild race called the Palio.
