About the villa
Set in a prime location, right in the heart of Tuscany, this cosy and intimate house has been comfortably furnished in traditional, elegant style and its 'home from home' comfort reflects the unfailing interest of the owner in their property and the well-being of their guests. Off the kitchen there is a pergola providing a lovely area for outside dining and extensive terrace with comfortable seating for absorbing the view of the terraced gardens and valley. Steps lead down through the garden to the attractive gated pool area. Nearby Siena is within very easy reach for shopping, sightseeing and an evening 'aperitivo' followed by a meal in a favourite trattoria and a 'gelato' - always a particular pleasure in Italy. The house is also close to the Chianti area and within reach of other hill towns of southern Tuscany and northern Umbria and the owners are delighted to offer their personal recommendations for wine tasting, sightseeing, walking, bicycle hire and massage.

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.
