About the villa

Shops and restaurants, golf and tennis, sailing and diving, and protected parkland are all within about 30km of this remarkable house. Thermal baths, sandy beaches and offshore islands are just a little further. Prestigious vineyards are within easy reach and even sumptuous Siena is within reach for a day trip. Yet this lovely very private villa, in the heart of Tuscany’s picturesque Maremma hills, tempts its guests to simply wind-down to its tranquil tempo. The spacious stone villa nestles in tree-shaded gardens, its cool interiors furnished in elegant but very comfortable country house style. The first floor is occupied by four charming bedrooms, all typically styled with ornate iron beds, bentwood chairs and eclectic artworks. Three have en suite shower room, and the master suite is complete with air conditioning, a private terrace and wonderfully spacious bathroom. On the ground floor a big and beautiful sitting room opens out to a covered terrace, furnished as al fresco living areas, a superb spot for a cocktail or after dinner drink. At the opposite end of the house, the dining area opens to a beautiful dining terrace with pergola. The very attractive country kitchen with pantry area is superbly equipped. And just an easy stroll down a grassy path from the house, a swimming pool is splashed by a little frog fountain and set in level lawns with smart furniture and a shady pergola with table and chairs. Ulivi offers additional cook service and is just 4km from restaurants in Magliano in Toscana.

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.
