About the villa

The sturdy stone walls of this former farmhouse have stood since the 13th century, and the rural views the house commands are probably as tranquil now as then. But there the similarities end, for careful restoration has transformed the tower-topped building into a comfortable and characterful family villa. Furnished in traditional Tuscan style, under heavily beamed ceilings, the house is ideally flexible for families, with three of its bedrooms designed for use as a double or twin beds. The kitchen/breakfast room is complemented by a built-in barbecue and covered terrace, for al fresco dining and superb sunset views. And in spacious lawned gardens, with trees, flowering shrubs and swathes of lavender, there is table tennis, badminton and a twelve metre pool, along with a solar-heated pool shower. With a local shop 3km away, the villa is 10km from amenities in San Casciano, just 25km from fabulous sightseeing in Florence, and within 50km of Siena and San Gimignano .

About the area


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.
