CHIANTI ROSSO is a large freestanding house between Florence and Siena in a panoramic position - in the Chianti hills. It is composed of two complete independent apartments. The ground level apartment is called "CHIANTi ROSSO B" and provides 2 bedrooms with 1 bathroom. On the first floor is Chianti Rosso A – the bigger apartment with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
This tuscan villa belongs to an active wine producing estate. Aprox. 10 hectar of grapes are harvested each year in the traditional way. Guests are invited to a complimentary guided tour and free degustation. There are beautiful hiking and biking trails behind the villa. A tennis ground is about 30 min. from the house. Two golf courts may be reached easily within 20 kilometre.
The house is snuggled on the south side of one of Chianti´s famous hills, among olive groves and vineyards. There is a large khaki fruit tree in front of the house and several old cypress trees around the house which offer much shade in the summer months. This villa can be easily combined with a nearby villa - CHIANTI BIANCO - to provide space for up to 26 persons! Both Villas share the same swimming pool located in a short distance of both villas, 6 x 12 meters.
The upstairs apartment is called "Chianti Rosso A" and is the larger of the two. It is composed of 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus a very large kitchen with an open fireplace and dinning area. Next to this area is a cozy living room with sofa bed. The house offers aprox. more than 300 square meters of space. It can easily accommodate 14 to 16 persons. The newly renovated kitchen comes complete with dishwasher, oven, stove, fridge, toaster, coffeemaker, all dishes and pots.
The furniture is made in the typical Tuscan rustic style, well suited for these country homes, consists of massive wood design ad handmade wrought iron from the local blacksmith. Daily maid service is available upon request.
Each apartment has its own private outdoor terrace, complete with tables, sun chairs and umbrellas; perfect for relaxing in the sun or for a dinner at sundown. A safe car park and a BBQ area are on the grounds. The pool is located directly in front of the house in a sunny and panoramic position. A little private lake, visible from the house, makes up part of the property and is nicely hidden between the green hills about 10 min. from the house. Fishing is allowed.
Both apartments offer a large eat-in kitchen with fireplace and a separate living room area. The kitchen is newly renovated and is equipped with dishwasher, oven, stove, fridge, and all necessary dishes and cookware so the entire group can be together during the preparation and the eating of all meals. Both apartments combine together for a private villa rental, offering an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the charm of Tuscany by hiking, mountain biking or even more relaxing a deck chair out by the pool overlooking the rolling hills of grapes and olives trees.
Chianti Rosso is also suitable for several couples or a family reunion. For larger groups we recommend renting the nearby Villas Chianti Bianco and Chianti Rubino and the enormous manor Villa Petra – a very special place for family reunions, incentive travel or wedding in Tuscany. All four villas together compose a very large property with 3 swimming pools ideal for weddings and meetings giving room for up to 60 to 70 people.
