The house is tastefully decorated in a classic Tuscan style and is filled with many personal touches which make a house a home!

"IL LECCIO" is national landmark tree which is over 400 years old and has grown to form a cupola; one can enter under the shade of this tree and be completely isolated from the world! It is the ideal area for picnics in the shade or a relaxing area for sipping your glass of Chianti wine.

 

The villa is less than 200 meters from a beautifully tended pool area, with changing room and bathroom facilities, shared with one more villas located in the same estate - Bellavista. The pool 14 x7 meters large is equipped with sun chairs and umbrellas.

Restaurants, shops of all types are less than 1 km away. It is a great location for day trips since the highway is on 14 km away where one can easily get to Siena 38 km; Florence 60 km and Arezzo 25 km. The closest village BUCINE is located in the borders of CHIANTI, the land of the famous Tuscan red wine. In fact, the property where this farmhouse is located produces its own Chianti wine, and other 3 types of wine, white and red.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: You will be able to visit their wine cellars with a free guidance in English or German of their caretaker. The wine tasting can be made directly in their wine shop and costs 3 euros per person, or you can purchase their local products, including the quality extra virgin olive oil. Besides, the owner offers a full Tuscan dinner in the manor house on Saturdays, upon previous reservation - and if you like it you can repeat in another day of the week! The full menu including house wine costs 30 euros per person. If you prefer, you can order their bottled wines, extra.

 

The "PODERE" produces wine, olive oil and grows fields and fields of sunflowers! It is a great place for friends, families or couples who want to truly enjoy the essence of the Tuscan lifestyle. This truly spectacular villa not only offers its own private covered garden area surrounded by flowers and lemon trees, private terrace with BBQ and olive groves everywhere but it also has a special area called "Il Leccio". A leccio is a tree that grows less than 20 cm in one year, therefore taking years and years to get to its full height.

 

On the right of the living room is a large double bedroom boasting of beautiful wood beamed ceiling and its own private newly renovated bathroom. Down the corridor to left of the living room you will find two spacious twin bedrooms with windows overlooking the vineyards which share a bathroom with a tub.

 

The villa is a lovely stone farmhouse, built at least a couple of centuries ago, in the typical Tuscan style and even after its renovation, the owner has kept all its original characteristics, which make this villa so charming and welcoming. You will feel like being immersed in the typical Tuscan countryside way of life - like actually lasts till now!

Wonderful location, comfy farmhouse. Good sized kitchen and living room. Good quality clean towels and sheets provided twice a week. Good washing machine, dish-washer, and cooker. Well maintained pool and pleasant other guests, well behaved and thoughtful at the pool. Restaurant Bucca in Ambra is good. Also the restaurant near the Coop in Bucini is very good with good service in both places

Make sure to take advantage of the Friday evening meal with the owners of the vineyard. Was a fantastic experience for our family!
Our time in Italy was limited, therefore we packed a lot of activities in to a short period of time. Next time I will allow more time to stay at the villa - the area was beautiful and felt very peaceful.
