From this location close to the town of Tavarnelle, midway between Florence and Siena, you can enjoy easy access to both cities as well as the Chianti Region. Take a dip in the pool, stroll through the villa’s rose gardens, olive tree groves, and admire views of the vineyards beyond. You and your guests can enjoy the ample outdoor space in the lounge areas or alfresco dining areas; you can even purchase wine and olive oil produce on the estate to accompany your meals!
(10 Hectares/24.7 Acres)
The villa is situated on an expansive estate surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The owner’s home is on the estate, but privacy is maintained. There are rose gardens, large lawns, and several outdoor lounge areas. There is a swimming pool (15m x 7m) and a hot tub (for 5 people) surrounded by olive trees, sun beds and a vine-covered gazebo. Near the pool there is a changing area and a mini-fridge for drinks. The villa’s stone courtyard is furnished with comfortable armchairs and a table beneath a gazebo perfect for alfresco dining. Towards one end of the garden sits a shaded area with marble topped table and a small outdoor kitchen for preparing meals. There is a private tennis court 300m away at a private villa that guests are welcome to use. Guests visiting during grape picking season (September-October) or olive picking season (October-November) have the opportunity to taste the vino novello or freshly pressed olive oil!
The villa is one of three buildings on the estate. Privacy is maintained and you and your guests have exclusive use of the main gardens and swimming pool
