The restoration took place from 2015-2017 and was directed by Daniela Fagotti and her husband Paolo. Her sharp eye for detail and aesthetics created the perfect balance between traditional Tuscan charm and contemporary lifestyle needs. From the terracotta tiles in the floor to the regal wood beam ceilings and 17th-century fireplace, every surface of Tenuta Ceccatelli has been lovingly restored, honouring the architectural structures in place since the Middle Ages. The exterior buildings showcase the stones used in the first construction peeking out behind wisteria and wild grape vines. The interiors feature a maze-like succession of open and intimate spaces filled with an abundance of natural sunlight. Finely crafted Tuscan antiques were sourced from around the region and refurbished in a fifth-generation family-owned studio belonging to Florence’s most prestigious woodworkers which crafted the custom-made hand-carved wood furniture and fine artefacts – large mirrors, elegant tables, chairs, sideboards, and hand-carved wood and wrought iron chandeliers. Each en-suite bathroom has been outfitted with Italian design Berni fixtures, Florentine artisanal custom-made brass and bronze furnishings and finished with stunning Tuscan marble and travertine stone. Guests will also enjoy modern amenities such as master and junior suites with queen and king size beds, Frette linen, high-speed wifi, flat screen TV, and fully equipped custom-made kitchens fit for a master chef.
