About the villa

Perfect for a special gathering of friends or family, this remarkable property is encircled by sixty hectares of private land, with vineyards, olives and walnut groves. Its extensive lawns encompass a children's play area, a huge pool with built-in steps and large furnished pool pergola, and spacious al fresco furnished pergola areas outside both Colonica and Granaio for lunching or lounging. Separately independent but conveniently close, each of the villa’s three buildings has its own character and facilities and, together, the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts, providing a choice of social spaces for dining and recreation. The largest house, Colonica, has three bedrooms, a dining area large enough to serve the whole group, a spacious sitting/billiard room, and a large state-of-the-art bathroom replete with sauna, steam bath and hydro-massage tub and shower, and another smart shower room. The smallest, Fienile, can also seat a ‘full house’ around its circular table. The two bedroom Granaio has a sitting room with satellite TV and two spacious bedrooms also with smart bathrooms. The very extensive lawned gardens and children's play area with table tennis are ideal for families. Full cook service can be added, and the villa is just 3km from shops and a restaurant in Badia Agnano, with several larger villages about 10km away.

Review

"The owner went out of her way to help and make us comfortable."

"The villa completely outstripped expectations in so many ways - fantastic  rooms, very high end finish to bathrooms and fully kitted out in every  way. Not only was the villa fabulous but the staff were exceptional."

About the area

Chianti and South of Siena

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.
