Vacation villa in the Chianti district near Greve in Chianti (Florence). Sleeps 8, wide outdoor space, panoramic terrace, swimming pool, barbecue.
The villa stands at an altitude of about 230 meters on a hill near Greve in Chianti (Florence), in the Chianti Classico area.
Chianti is the name of a wide region between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Tuscany. In origin, the Chianti area was identified only with the territories of Gaiole, Radda and Castellina, which constituted the "Lega del Chianti". In 1932, the Chianti area was completely re-drawn and Greve in Chianti and other municipalities in the province of Florence were included in the Chianti Classico sub-area.
Renowned for the famous homonymous wine, Chianti is also a region rich in ancient castles, churches and medieval villages scattered among the vineyards and olive groves that cover its gentle hills.
The elegant villa featuring lacunar ceilings, exposed beams and wide rooms stands in the same place where up to the first half of the 16th century stood an ancient fortress dating from the 11th century.
Thanks to its strategic position in the heart of the countryside between Florence and Siena, the villa is an excellent departure point for visiting not only the town of the lily and the town of the Palio, but also the whole Chianti area, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca and many other Tuscan cities of art.
A wide panoramic terrace overlooking the valley below stretches around the building.
The private swimming pool (10x5 m; depth: 1.50-3 m) lies in the garden situated on a lower level.
