This is a unique and historic wine country villa set in the heart of one of the most famous wine countries in the world, Chianti. The Tower was built in 1085, making it nearly 1000 years young. The interior has been completely remodeled and outfitted with all of the modern amenities. Contemporary and comfortable furnishings throughout complement the ancient walls of this Tuscan villa.
Nearly every room boasts views of the mountain atop which the ruins of Montegrossi Castle are perched. Torre di Cancelli was, in fact, built to protect the highly coveted castle. A mild hike up the hill will take you inside this historic monument.
A short walk down the road leads you to the stunning Badia a Coltibuono, a former monastery that bottles its own wine and olive oil. Cooking classes, a restaurant, wine tasting, and tours are just a few of the things the abbey has to offer.
8km away, Radda in Chianti is a prized and ancient town in the area. A favorite local restaurant is Bottega da Giovannino. Be sure to say hi to Monica, the proprieter. She's quite the wine enthusiast and the food is excellent.
