The house, recently restructured, is located in the little village La Piazza, in the heart of Chianti, very close to the famous vineyards Castello di Rampolla and Fontodi. The landscape is beautiful and uncontaminated. It is easy to drive to Florence and Siena (about 30 min.). The house has three entrance on an area for parking or relax, and another access on a terrace. It is a large house on two floors: on the first floor a kitchen, a living room, and an entrance-room with a bathroom. On the second floor three large double bedrooms (one of those with a library), and a big bathroom. Outside it is available a haven for nice pizzas and bread. The house is particularly comfortable for children and excursions to art cities and countryside.
The Wine: The house is particularly indicated for the food&wine lovers: obviously in the heart of Tuscany you can't taste the amazing wines here produced and the good food cooked in the restaurants and 'osterie'.
We suggest also to visit directly our winery Caparsa, 12 km far from the Vitaliano House, famous nationally and internationally for our award-winning wines.
The Art-City: 30 minutes of driving far from the house there are two of the most beautiful cities in the world: Siena and Firenze.
Siena, very small and very medieval, with its Piazza del Campo, with its Dome, with the famous Torre del Mangia, will enchant you and surely you will fall in love with the quite atmosphere that floats around the city.
Forence on the other side is much more crowded, more touristic, more traffic, but if you have patience and curiosity you will find so much little treasures that you won't want to leave the city: from the Renaissance treasure like Palazzo Vecchio, Museo degli Uffizi, the Dome, to the crowded San Lorenzo Market, to che beautiful Ponte Vecchio, or the spectacular view of the Piazzale Michelangelo, you surely be satisfied by beauty!
Situated in the heart of Chianti Shire hills, our house is a little paradise in the very small village of La Piazza. Very close to the highway, you can reach Siena or Firenze in just 30 minutes of car, and visit places like Piazza del Campo in Siena or the beautiful Ponte Vecchio in Firenze. Otherwise you could just stay in the hills, enjoying the landscapes and the good Tuscan food and gorgeous wines. The house is own by our family who has a winery (Caparsa) nearby, so absolutely you should come and see where we make our wine and how we make it.
Golf: 30 km far from our house there's the prestigious Chianti Golf Club 'Ugolino', right close to Firenze, in a wonderful landscape, with a great view and good fields.
