About the property

Charming 5BDR villa with private pool and gorgeous views in Greve in Chianti!

This wonderful recently restored 5BDR villa is located in the heart of the Chianti region, just steps away from the town of Greve.

The villa traces its origin back to the 1300 and has recently been tastefully renovated and exquisitely furnished. The careful attention to details by the owner, who has owned the property for more than 35 years, contributes into making this villa a truly unique place with a very sophisticated, cozy and elegant atmosphere.

From the villa it is possible to enjoy the most lovely views on the typical Tuscan landscape, full of vineyards, olive groves and cypress peaked hillsides.

The garden of the villa is always perfectly kept and features plenty of outdoors furniture for the 2 covered verandas as well as for the pool area... Which makes it perfect for just relaxing enjoying the views or for al fresco dining (there is also a large barbecue available).

The private swimming pool (size 45 x 19 feet) enjoys wonderful views over the typical Tuscan countryside and comes fully furnished with lounges and shaded areas.

Location: the villa is located in Greve in Chianti, which is often considered as the “entrance gate” into the Chianti region. The beautiful main square of Greve, Piazza Matteotti, is the focal point of the town and can be easily reached from the villa on foot (about 10 minutes walk), by bike, or by car (3 minutes drive).

At the Piazza Matteotti there is several excellent restaurants such as the Osteria Mangiando Mangiando, the Bottega del Moro or the Osteria del chianti classico as well as many other typical grocery stores, Artisan shops and the famous Antica Macelleria Falorni (a Tuscan butcher that has been in the same spot since 1729). Nearby the square there is also a supermarket.

Walking distance from the villa there is a bus stop where it is possible to take several buses to Florence or other nearby locations such as San Gimignano or Siena.

Description of the interiors: The villa features 5 charming bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in total.

Ground Floor: The villa's main door opens onto a welcoming sitting room followed by a large living room with fireplace and TV. From the entrance's sitting room there is a few stairs to reach the first bedroom (with two twin beds) and the ensuite bathroom.

The dining area is directly connected to the outdoor's veranda (that comes fully furnished with sofas and very comfortable furniture) and the garden. Next to dining room is the spacious and fully equipped kitchen that comes with a large wood dining table (that seats up to 10).

First Floor: Halfway up the stairs from the ground floor's living room going to the first floor, there is a double bedroom (with two twin beds) and right next to it a bathroom with tub.

On the first floor there is another double bedroom with two twin beds and a double bedroom (with Queen bed) that share a bathroom with shower.

At the end of the first floor's corridor there is the magnificent master bedroom (with King bed) with the ensuite bathroom with tub. The villa is air-conditioned.

A great place to stay in Chianti-Everything you'd ever need or want

  • 4 of 5

Last time we stayed in Greve was 10 years ago when the kids were just teenagers. We decided to return with our children in their 20's (& their partners) & staying at Andrea's was no disappointment. Finding a central villa wasn't easy for 10 but Castello Di Colognole ticked every box. Just a stroll down the hill to Greve or up to Montefiorelle made life easy for restaurants & groceries. Our special villa was also very convenient for drives to many historical & interesting places such as Sienna, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Cortona & many others. We met Giovanni when we first arrived & he made life easy by explaining all the wonderful facets of his family's villa. All rooms were beautifully appointed & all bathrooms, lounge areas, kitchen, laundry, pool etc were in great condition & fully functional. The Villa was also set on a beautiful parcel of land in the midst of Tuscany & vineyards so there was no urgency to explore further if you didn't want to. Many times we used the outdoor fresco areas to enjoy the local food, wine & the spectacular views.

Many thanks Andrea/Giovanni for sharing your beautiful villa. We will always have fond memories of our time spent in Greve. Scott & Wendy October 2017

Absolutely beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adult couples + 2 single adults + 2 children) absolutely loved this house. It has many interior and exterior spaces for hanging out, the rooms are wonderfully cool with individual AC (very important in summer!!), the outdoor dining tables are fantastic, and of course the pool was refreshingly cool, private, and bigger than we imagined! The whole property overlooks beautiful vistas and we enjoyed magical sunsets every evening. It was extremely clean, the kitchen had everything we needed, Giovanni (Andrea's son) was an excellent host and communicator, and really there was nothing we lacked for or needed. As others have mentioned, the property is up a steep hill, so you do need a car to get into Greve or to explore the area, but we knew that and were prepared. You really shouldn't hesitate, this property gave us a wonderful stay for a very special family occasion. Thanks again Giovanni!

Perfect villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was a perfect base for our 6 night stay in Tuscany. We were 2 families (7 adults) and had plenty of room. We especially loved all the outdoor seating options! The views were amazing and the grounds were extremely well kept. The pool was a welcome treat after exploring the area on hot, sunny days. The location couldn't have been any better. It was very peaceful and quiet but a very short walk into Montefioralle which had a winery and two restaurants (we ate at one, Ristorante la Castellana, which was delicious). It's about a 15-20 minute walk into Greve in Chianti which has many restaurants, shops and a grocery store. The walk back is up a steep hill but the road is well paved. It was very easy to take the bus from Greve into Florence for a nice day trip. We booked this house not knowing anything about the area and relied on the other reviews. We are so happy we did! Everything from booking to check in to check out went so smoothly. Andrea quickly answered all of my emails and provided us with a wonderful packet of information about the house and area before we left. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!

Heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a villa in the heart of Tuscany look no further! This beautiful property is situated on a hill with amazing views of the olive groves and vineyards. Perfect for larger groups of 7-8 adults. We absolutely loved the accommodations and proximity to Florence and other sites. A short walk to Greve in Chianti for dinners and groceries made this complete.

Absolute Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more impressed with this part of our trip. The villa was located in the perfect position, between two wonderful villages, Greve and Montefioralle. Both within walking distance, had all the amenities and services we required. There was 5 adults and 3 children, and the villa was more than adequate to accommodate us. The grounds were immaculate, and the pool crystal clear. Housekeeping was there 3 times a week, and the house was kept very clean. We had an amazing time, had a cooking class and many lazy days by the pool.

Many thanks to Giovanni (Andrea's son), who even purchased some groceries for us as we were running late for our check in.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone, and look forward to future stays at this address.

Tuscan Treat

  • 5 of 5

Podere Il Castello is a charming villa within walking distance of the hilltop village of Montefioralle, home to two good restaurants, a small cafe and a nearby winery. The villa is beautifully decorated and full of the owner's family photos and belongings. We were six adults but it could easily accommodate 10 comfortably with plenty of space. The property includes a very nice pool and several outdoor seating areas where meals can be taken and leisure time spent. The property is gated and very private, although street noise is pronounced due to the villa's location close to the road. Hot water was at times limited, which the owner said he would check, and wifi was spotty at best, a common problem everywhere we went in Italy. All in all, this is a very enjoyable property from which to explore the beauty of Chianti. The town of Greve is also a short drive or 20 minute walk and has excellent shops and good restaurants on the main piazza.
