Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Greve - Podere Ridaldi
Lamole is situated in a beautiful position, 600 meters a.s.l., in the heart of Chianti, the most pure region of Tuscany, only 8 km from Greve in Chianti. Entirely hilly, harsh and soft, covered in serried rows of wines interspaced by olive groves and lines of cypresses. The light is astounding: on clear days you can see forever, on misty days the colours and the objects are seen as through a veil and one feels leaving in a Renaissance landscape in peace and beauty. Here was the setting for the film of Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing. PodRidaldi, an ancient farmhouse, is a garden patio along a rose garden and big open spaces immersed in the vineyards and in the iris fields (in flower in may), witch are said to give its very special bouquet to the Chianti wine. The house is along side a winding country lane, too narrow for much traffic. The windows views are stunning in every direction. There are immense estate lands to walk through the ancient soil terrace, the woods the vineyard.
Chianti-region: This region is absolutely dreamy, one of the most famous regions, you have to know the heart of Chianti, the vine, the landscape, the small roads with olives and cypresses in this magic atmosphere.
