At this level there is also a large kitchen opening out onto a terrace and the garden and a pretty bedroom with four poster bed opening out to the garden. In the internal patio there is a large vine covered pergola and marble topped table, ideal for al fresco dining. At first floor and second floor level the bedrooms are all decorated in this pretty style with colour washed walls and some ethnic covers and botanical prints. The tower bedroom has wonderful views. The property is set in a glorious Tuscan garden with cypress trees, rosemary and other mature trees and shrubs. The terraces at the front of the house are the perfect spot for admiring the magnificent Tuscan views.

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.
