PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Lo Spicchio is a beautiful farmhouse situated in the heart of Chianti on a hill with one of the most beautiful natural scenarios in the Siena area and in which the leading role is played by infinite shades of green. From the large windows in the living room and from the lush garden embellishing the property, one’s gaze stretches uninterruptedly away to the horizon, over the rolling hills dotted with noble vines and ordered rows of olive trees. This elegant country house, skilfully renovated in keeping with the typical Tuscan style, with the outer walls in open-face stone, terracotta floors and wooden-beamed ceilings, is furnished in a sober and refined style; the rooms, warm and hospitable with soft colours and hand-painted floral decorations, are furnished with a collection of antique furniture cleverly interspersed with details of modern design and exotic evocation. Located in the tiny, thousand-year old Romanesque village of Adine, with its very old church and currently consisting of a very few houses, the house is just a few kilometres from the beautiful villages of Radda and Gaiole in Chianti. From here, by car or by bike along the wine route, passing through the villages of Panzano and Greve, you can get to Florence and you can also visit the other characteristic valleys surrounding Siena (just 25km away) and the numerous little towns of great artistic interest such as San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano. The house is located approximately 50 metres from that of the owners who can be a useful point of reference for guests to whom, however, complete privacy is guaranteed.
The house stands on a hill on a sloping surface. This allows direct access to the house on both the ground floor and the lower floor. The main entrance, located on the ground floor, opens into an open-plan area with fully-equipped kitchen and dining room; it is connected on one side with the sleeping area, consisting of a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) and a double bedroom (with bed in the loft), sharing a bathroom with shower. The floor is completed by a third double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub, reached by a short flight of stairs. A cosy living room with fireplace and satellite TV make up the lower floor, characterized by large windows with panoramic views and with direct access to the portico (which leads on to the laundry room).
The house is set in an estate of about 1.5 hectares, distributed among the olive grove overlooking the valley and the well-kept park. Italian cypresses, olives and fruit trees, such as fig and plum, adorn the cosy garden which also includes a vegetable garden at the guests' disposal. Lawn areas are interspersed with winding paved pathways, bordered by lavender and fragrant roses, which accompany the guests to the various furnished areas, perfect for enjoying the peace and quiet that these surroundings provide. Two spacious porticoes, one located in front of the kitchen (on the ground floor) and the other in front of the living room (lower floor), are equipped with tables, chairs and barbecue for outdoor dining. Next to the pool, a lounge area with sofas and armchairs invites you to relax and enjoy a pleasant chat with friends, while, at the highest point of the garden, another relaxation area, shaded by two large Arizona cypresses, is the perfect place for contemplating the spectacular sunset over the Chianti hills.
The beautiful infinity pool, overlooking the amazing panorama spreading out in front, is set on terracing next to the villa, bordered on one side by a stone wall adorned with rosemary bushes and colourful flowers, and is accessible via a short flight of steps. The rectangular pool, with travertine border, mosaic lining and Roman steps for access to the water, measures 10 x 3.5 m with a constant depth of 2.5 m. It has salt purification and is equipped with both interior and exterior lighting. The solarium area around the pool is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas while, on the well-kept lawn surrounding it, is a gazebo covered with vines and climbing roses. A cold-water shower is provided for the guests. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday of October.
