About the property

180 sqm, Sleeps 7+1, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths

A delightful and charming independent two-storey Villa, renovated by owners from what was once a 12th Century church only 3 km from the well known town of Panzano in Chianti (home of the world famous “Crazy Butcher, Dario Cecchini (http://www.dariocecchini.com/en), located in a quiet holiday resort area, within the fraction of Greve in Chianti (8km) and nearby the famous towns of Castellina (13km), Radda (12km) and Gaiole (23km), the larger cities of Florence (30km) and Siena (40km) home of the famous Palio horse race run twice a year on July 2nd and August 16th. A very spacious villa, suitable for couples, single or sharing families of up to eight people, offering great comfort at all times of the year. One bedroom can be used as either a double, twin, or for three children. The backyard/garden offers peace and relaxation, and for the more energetic, the area is ideal for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits. The villa is both cool in summer and warm in winter with an outdoor dining area that can be used despite any rain with a large pergola veranda, equipped with table and chairs, a wood oven and a barbeque grill. A semi above ground swimming pool is available from May to October. The winter months offer full central heating if desired (extra billing if used) and a supply of logs for the large open fire maintaining a very cozy atmosphere. The owners are available daily to deal with any concerns you may have.

The main floor has 2 separate entrances – one from the patio into the kitchen/area and one from the lawn area to the open concept dining and living area (the original Church entrance and original door). The top floor has 1 bedroom with and en-suite bathroom with shower, the other 3 bedrooms share a bathroom with shower. One of these bedrooms has an adjacent balcony. There is a gorgeous view from the “Church” Tower (available 2016 season).

Guestbook comments from the owner

FABULOUS! Let me start by telling you about the house since that is why you are staying there. It has plenty of space, rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable and the entire house gives you "home" feeling. I would strongly recommend staying there. We would love to rent for a month ! Having the owners near-by, Grazia & Nicola was great. They could not have been more helpful, especially having a flat tire on Sunday (EVERYTHING is closed on Sundays) where Nicola went above and beyond with taking the tire to a friend and had it fixed so that we would not miss out on a day of site-seeing. We also chose to have and evening where we had Grazia make my husband and I dinner, OMG, it was delicious and we were stuffed.........what an amazing home-made dinner she and daughter-in-law made. We would love to go back and take the entire family. I would rate it **** stars. Thanks again! Jan & Ed

You are very near the rich artistic and historical heritage towns of Siena and Florence along with San Gimignano, Volterra, Lucca, Pisa and Le 5 Terre that make great day trips. As this is Chianti country a few notable suggestions are: The new architectural phenomenon of the Antinori Winery in Bargino (tours and restaurant), Fonterutoli, Lilliano, Cesani in San Gimignano, Terrabianca in Radda, Badia di Coltibuono and Castello di Brolio in Gaiole, Dievole in Vagliali and Scoperto near Siena. Don't forget Montalcino, Val d'Orcia (Bagno Vignone and San Quirico) and Montepulciano (on the way to the province of Umbria). Chef/Cook/Catering on request to the Property Manager. Panzano is most famous for Dario Cecchini, the 'Crazy Butcher'. Outlet shopping can be found on the outskirts of Florence (Lecchio, Reggello www.themall.it/en/outlet-italy/homepage.html) and Barberino Designer Outlet ( www.florentiabus.it/eng/outlet-barberino.asp )

Muy bonita y bien situada.

Una casa preciosa. Estuvimos muy cómodos y está muy bien situada.

La piscina es pequeña, pero suficiente para distraer a los niños.
