Charming Chianti Villa Vineyard Views
This beautifully decorated 13th century villa, sits in a quiet and secluded location, in the heart of the Chianti Classico Region. From the property, there are glorious views over the surrounding countryside of vineyards and olive groves. The property is accessed by a 1.7 km authentic and unsealed road. As we drove through the countryside, passing vineyards over unpaved natural passages, I was very curious as to where the road would lead. And much to my surprise, up on a hill, sat a glorious stone villa, wrapped in delicate green vines. As we approached the front door, I felt as though I was traveling into a novel, as I strolled each room, it told a story. This is one of my favorite residences in Italy.
Surrounded by 10 hectares of olive groves, vineyards and gardens, this villa provides the perfect retreat for those wanting to relax in full Tuscan style. The house dates back to the 13th century and is surrounded by a 180 degree veranda, from which there are uninterrupted views over the Chianti countryside.
The interior of the house offers an appealing blend of comfort and elegance. The home’s decor is filled with antiques and treasures.
