At the centre of an Italian village, a large stone pool built in the Quattrocento holds water springing from a volcano, whose source is found at the summit of Mount Amiata. These natural springs, appreciated by the Etruscans long ago, later brought renown to the village of Bagno Vignoni. Resting on a hill between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennines, this hamlet is surrounded by fertile plains where grapes, olives and cereals grow, and constructed on land crisscrossed by little cypress-edged paths linking fields to green oak forests, in the heart of a region that was once the cradle of the Renaissance, Tuscany.Learn more
Within this dazzling setting, a precious jewel was set: Florence, the land of arts and poetry, an hour and a half by road from Villa Carina. This traditional residence perches over the peaceful vineyards of Tenuta di Trinoro and stretches over a vast 6000 m2 estate where lawns run along vegetable gardens and punctuate a bowling ground. Here, natural terraces reinforced by old stone walls stand beside a beautiful swimming pool and a pergola.
Inside, impressive solid wood beams support – as they already have done for the last two centuries – the heavy tiled roof that crowns the stone walls. An ancient fireplace takes pride of place in the middle of a rustic living room, next to authentic furniture and superb paintings, all bathed in delicate golden light that penetrates the tall bay windows.
Large mirrors, artworks and floor tiles decorate the bedrooms – spacious suites that all have their own bathroom. Look out the windows and you will see right over the marvellous valley, a view that gets lost in the immense and cloudless sky.
Behind grassy nooks in the knobbly landscapes, small villages, sometimes fortified, succeed one another up to the ever-warm waters of the pool at Bagno Vignoni. A bewitching spot, almost mystical, that the ingenious Russian filmmaker Andreï Tarkovski chose as the site for shooting his hypnotic, meditative masterpiece Nostalghia.
