Greve Villa Rental Photos and Description

An antique villa nestled in a valley of medieval castles and churches among olive groves and cypress trees in the hills of the beautiful Chianti Classico, area of Tuscany. This is an ideal place for a vacation in nature while immersed in art and history. Its location makes it a perfect base for many cultural and culinary excursions given its close proximity to Florence, Greve in Chianti and Siena.

If you are looking for tranquility, you can find it in the quiet sun terrace with pool which has been carved out of rocks on a plateau with magnificent views, or in the romantic garden or in one of the many hidden corners found throughout the villa’s grounds. For those who would like to ride horses or bicycles, there is a Ranch within 2 km of the Villa. For golfers, the elegant Ugolino Golf course is less than 10 km away. Villa Montescalari was built as a summer residence in 1458 by the Guardi, a noble florentine family, in order to escape the heat of the city. Its furniture of the period serves to preserve the centuries of history that unfolded within its walls for 22 generations! Its original fireplaces continue to provide warmth on cool autumn evenings. Those who love good food can take advantage of the culinary talents of Delfa, available upon request, and enjoy authentic tuscan cuisine. We help our clients settle into the villa, and we are also happy to make museum reservations, organize and accompany them on day trips to wondeful places like Cinque Terre and the beach at Forte dei Marmi. We can also suggest many activities and sights that are off the beaten path!

Car: necessary

At the exit of the Airport of Florence take the Highway A 1 ( Autostrada del sole ) direction ROMA and leave it at the exit FIRENZE SUD.

Continue in the direction of PONTE A EMA – SIENA ( you will be on the road “Chiantigiana” – SS 222 ).

Drive through the village GRASSINA and continue driving in the direction of SIENA, until you reach the Golf Ugolino.

Continue driving in the same direction and you will arrive at STRADA IN CHIANTI : drive through the village and at the exit of the village, after a descent, turn left in the direction of SAN POLO.

Continue for about 2 Km and then you will see on the right side some little artisan factories.

After the last factory ( CELINE ), you have to turn right into a road with a sign for SEZZATE . This road becomes unpaved after 1 Km. Continue driving on this road staying on the main road ( it leads through a wood ) until you reach a hamlet of houses.

At the end of the houses you will reach a road-fork : turn right taking a road with a sign saying “ STRADA SENZA USCITA “ ( dead-end road ).

Continue for 400 m. and you will be in front of a castle: turn left and near a curve you will see a big yellow villa.

The famous golf club of Ugolino (18 holes) is only at 8 km far from the house.

The ranch where you can rent horses for equestrian tourism is only at 1,5 km far from the house. There you can rent also mountain bikes.

Is possible to organize with the owner visits to museums, special events in Florence and the visit of the 5 Terre in one day.

For those who would prefer to spend some time out of doors exploring the vast beauty of this part of Italy, there are a few truly “secret” itineraries, all of which are easily accessible with Villa Montescalari as a starting point. For example, there are the Towers of San Gimignano ( 40 km from the Villa) where one can find medieval examples of the once-soaring Twin Towers of New York. Or one can have lunch in the piazza of Monteriggioni (50 km from the Villa), perhaps one of the smallest medieval villages in the world, whose towers and enclosed walls stand out in the panorama of the sweet hills between Florence and Siena. And an extraordinary treasure which should not be overlooked is the Abbey of San Galgano (80 km from the Villa). This stately and impressive roman cathedral rises grandly on a high plateau, only its skeleton remaining intact. It was here that the history of art and the legend of the Templars was intertwined, and here also where one can find one of the most curious artifacts of the area…..a fantastic sword imbedded almost magically in a large rock, a mystery that has never been solved, but one that, of course, leads one to think of the fabled “sword in the stone” of historical lore.
