About the villa

With a row of sentinel cypress trees to the front of the villa and the terraced slopes of an olive grove behind, this inviting house sits at the heart of a small vineyard in Chianti country. Outside, geraniums and rosemary fill terracotta pots, and a series of shallow steps leads down a lawned slope to the swimming pool, where there are ample loungers for undisturbed sun-soaking. Within the villa, airy rooms have been furnished with carefully chosen fittings and fabrics, ornate chandeliers sharing the limelight with modern artworks, while the gorgeous farmhouse kitchen boasts marble surfaces and very contemporary appliances.On the ground floor a spacious sitting room is complemented by a stylish dining room, both with access to the garden. There are indoor and external staircases to the first floor, where pretty bedrooms with colour-washed walls are served by quality bathrooms, and an open fireplace forms the focal point of the villa’s study. Cook service can be arranged here, to add a level of leisure, and a 1km stroll leads to shops and restaurants in Radda in Chianti. Further afield, Passo Sole is just 35km from Siena.

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.
