Located in an unspoiled area in the hills between Florence and Siena, the villa is immersed in a large winery which produces a delicious Tuscan wine, the Chianti Colli Senesi D.O.C.G. and some other typical products, specially a high quality extra virgin olive oil. The building is an authentic farmhouse built of stone with thick walls and original materials like “terracotta” floors and ceilings, wooden beams and many antique pieces of furniture.
The villa is recently renovated and has been divided in four independent apartments for 2 up to 6 people each. In total there is enough accommodation for a group of 14 people, the apartments can be rented separately or all together when available. Each one has its own private living room, kitchen, outdoor area for relax and meals al fresco. The estate is located on the hillside, with stunning views either of Colle Val D’Elsa – a charming medieval town near Siena – or San Gimignano, the UNESCO heritage with its medieval towers. This is one of the best preserved areas in Tuscany, reflecting that typical panorama with the sunflower fields on summer, golden grain fields, vineyards and cypress trees covering the rolling hills.
