About the villa

Just brimming with the bucolic charm of its unspoilt hillside setting, this beguilingly simple little villa comes with a superb swimming pool. Set below the house in its tiered garden, with fantastic views over rolling hills and local villages, the generously sized infinity pool is an unrivalled focal point. With a Jacuzzi corner, sun-loungers on the paved surround and an outdoor shower, it’s the perfect place to wind-down to the rural Tuscan tempo, especially as there is a portable barbecue for lunches in the leafy pergola on the poolside lawn. Beside the house, a brick-paved patio provides another shady spot for al fresco meals, complementing the villa’s country kitchen/diner, where colour-washed walls, checked fabrics and blue painted chairs are juxtaposed with a microwave, dishwasher and American fridge/freezer. 
Stairs lead up from here to a mezzanine level under the roof rafters, where a cosy sitting room has a couple of sofas, a fireplace and TV; and there are two bedrooms at ground level, each with its own shower room. With its obliging owner living on site in a separate villa, Il Piccolo Fienile is just 4km from the train station in Montelupo, which is then only a 15 minute ride into the centre of Florence.

About the area

Florence

Average weather

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.

But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
