About the villa

The perfect marriage of modern comforts and classical style, this restored 17th Century farmhouse really is as gorgeous as it looks. Less than an half an hour from Siena, it’s a perfectly private retreat that enjoys a spectacular setting in the rolling hills of the Chianti region. There are wine estates nearby and traditionally Tuscan cypress-studded views, while tiny medieval hamlets are just down the road.

This villa has a high spec both inside and out. The gorgeous stone exterior is traditionally classic, and blends perfectly with the rounded sunken swimming pool out back – it’s an instant eye-catcher that's framed beautifully with cast-iron loungers and a generous grey stone patio. There’s plenty of room for a sunbathe or a spot of downtime, as well two large terraces with pergolas which feature Travertine marble tables for those lazy breakfasts, long lunches or warm evening al fresco meals. Inside, the villa is super classy, with an elegance throughout that screams rustic sophistication. Old world buffered cream colored walls are complemented with rich wooden accents, whether that’s the beautiful beamed ceilings, dark wooden window panes or the hand-carved furniture, bespoke to the villa. Expect antique mirrors, Florentine hand painted cabinets and hand forged chandelier lighting in every room – there’s also lovely authentic artefacts and terracotta tiled floors throughout, which add a traditional luxury to the country design. The lounge is beautiful, with plush sofas and a large TV for maximum comfort, and there’s a custom-designed Tuscan kitchen which is a glorious setting for stay in meals. There are seven bedrooms in the villa – the main house sleeps 10, while a further 4 can stay in the poolside granary. All of the bedrooms are very shabby-chic in look and feel – luxurious beds combine with a modern en-suite decorated in a traditional Tuscan marble.

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.

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
