About the villa
The sturdy, unadorned stone exterior of Villa San Vincenzo gives no hint of the fabulous rooms it contains. Designed with taste and flair, the luxury villa incorporates 21st century facilities, while celebrating its ancient architecture. It is liberally sprinkled with big bold artworks, fitted with spacious bathrooms and equipped with mod cons from WiFi and satellite TV, to a very contemporary steel-finish kitchen under a vaulted brick ceiling. Each with its own style and atmosphere, a dining room, classically elegant study, sitting room and comfy TV room combine to provide ample social space. Bedrooms are airy and uncluttered, the four doubles in the main house complemented by a split-level room for four in an adjoining building, and a guest house, just across the lawn, with its own living room and kitchenette. A covered dining terrace here overlooks the swimming pool, and there are peaceful rural views from many perspectives in the extensive gardens. Positioned between the Chianti villages of Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardegna, the villa offers optional cook service and is 3.5km from a local restaurant.

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.
