Overview

Greve Villa Rental Photos and Description

Newly restored farmhouse in quiet, scenic surroundings in Tuscany, self-catering

Nestled amidst vineyards, in the heart of Tuscany, the beautiful farmhouse Poggetta is a typical rural stone building, with its private pool, for up to 10 people.

The Villa was previously also rented as two apartments so the layout is also ideal for family groups to each have some privacy. Preserved and newly renovated in the original style of Tuscany, the villa features all modern amenities and is lovingly furnished.

This farmhouse is beautifully situated on a hill above Lucolena, which is a part of the municipality of Greve in Chianti. Ideal for those who want tranquillity, walking in the surrounding forests, or strolling casually through one of the antique villages nearby. Poggetta is situated right in the centre of the cultural triangle of Florence 50 km, Siena 40 km and Arezzo 40 km. There is also the possibility of visiting nearby Chianti Classico wineries. We are glad to send you more pictures of the farmhouse upon request.

On entering Poggetta you pass through an arched doorway into a lounge with an open fireplace.

Here is a convertible sofa which sleeps 2, sat TV, DVD and CD player.

Continuing through another arch with glass door, you enter the dining room with a high ceiling and original stone walls. The room is furnished with a table and chairs for 10 people to sit comfortably. On one side of the room, there are large windows and a glass door providing the room with plenty of light and access to a furnished terrace with view of the pool area.

On the left of the dining room there is the kitchen. It is well equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, gas hobs and oven. There is access to a bathroom with shower. A door leads out to a furnished garden. From this room there are stairs leading to a balcony/gallery, where there is a double bedroom.

On the other side of the dining room, there is a large twin bedroom with en suite bath with shower. From this room, stairs lead up to a third comfortable bedroom, with a double bed. The upstairs bedroom is open to the downstairs one via the stairwell, making this a suitable combination for a family. Going back to the entrance and lounge area, there is access on the left to the second, smaller kitchen, which has gas hobs, fridge and an oven. There is a sofa which sleeps 2, TV and a table with chairs. From this room you can access another furnished garden. Upstairs, there is a large private double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

BEAUTIFUL LARGE AND PRIVATE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Poggetta in August of this year, our first trip to Tuscany. The villa was beautiful, clean and quiet and housed two families (4 in each) perfectly. The facilities are very good, everything we could need and the views are spectacular. As others have said the road up to the villa is a little 'rugged' but we managed to drive and walk down it! The village centre is about a 10 minute walk away and there is a restaurant there that serves wonderful Italian food at very reasonable prices from Thursday to Sunday nights only.

The location is excellent to view the major towns and cities of Tuscany and there is a very large Co-op in Figline (about a 10 minute drive). A car is a must.

The owners of the villa were incredibly helpful and welcoming. I left a cherished piece of jewellery behind and they did everything they could to ensure I got it back in one piece - thank you!

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was all we expected. As others reviewers said the road to the villa is a little tricky but once you get used to it is not bad. The place was cleaned and comfortable. The landscape with all the herb shrubs is wonderful, just walk to the backyard and pick them to cook. I for sure recommend this place, it was close to different towns and convenient to visit Pisa, Florence, Arezzo, Siena, SanGimigniano,all within one or two hours drive. We enjoyed our stay very much. Picarda and Nicolo were very good hosts and brought a wonderful lasagna with fresh vegetables and mushrooms. A very nice touch. Thank you to them for sharing their home with us. Maria from USA

A Perfect stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
Farmhouse Poggetta in Lucolena is as wonderful and charming as it sounds. As a family of 9 (6 adults & 3 children) we booked it for 2 weeks for a special occasion and it was all we hoped it would be.
The layout of the farmouse is perfect for a large family, with two kitchens, 3 shower rooms and separate apartment use, providing excellent privacy when required. Recent renovation and refurbisment has preserved the true Tuscan style and it is tastefully and comfortably furnished. The gardens, terraces and pool areas are superb with tables, chairs and loungers for everyone, all suitably positioned to view the stunning Tuscan hills. It's fun using the open air utility room, at the same time keeping an eye on the children playing in the pool.
Ours host Anna Maria was exceptionally helpful and her brother in law Niccolo called in regularly to ensure smooth running at the farmouse, keeping it well maintained. Niccolo's wife will arrange a meal with a few days notice and she cooked and served us (with Niccolo) an excellent special 4 course Tuscan dinner together with a selection of wines from their winery. It was a terrific evening, on the terrace, made magical by twinkling fireflies surrounding us throughout.
There's an excellent rail service to Florence and Pisa from Figlene (20 minutes drive away) and Lucolena is well situated for the S222.
The Chianti Classico and Olive Oil of Fattoria l'ottavo is to be recommended. Perfect rural Italy.

Charming large villa, perfect privacy,

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this lovely 15th century villa in the charming town of Lucolena in the Chianti region of Italy. The villa is located on a hill situated among grapevines on a vineyard and Olive Trees. The villa has been well restored with the Rock facade and heavy wooden doors and Window interior shutters. We had a fire every evening and had rented the whole villa for a quiet Tuscan Holiday. The Kitchens were perfect and we had lovely breakfasts from the local Italian grocery stores. It would be perfect for 3 couple or a large family also. We plan to return in the fall with 2 other couples. Anna Maria was lovely and gave us a tour of the Winery Cellar, her brother and sister in law were friendly and charming and gave us a lovely can of the most wonderful Olive Oil that they produce on the vineyard. The property gave us a taste of what the Tuscan life is like and was centrally located to all the sights in Tuscany, most locations like Greve, San Gimanango and Florence within an easy 30 minute to hour drive. It was wonderful to come back every evening and relax. The internet was high speed and made our stay very convenient. We would definitely return! It was cool there in March so didnt use the pool, but enjoyed the lovely patios to sit outside and the green lawn with convenient chairs to view the Tuscan hills with the characteristic Italian Cypress trees. What a great place to unwind with some of the wonderful local Chianti wines!

Loved Poggetta!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most enjoyable stay, Fattoria L'Ottavo was EXACTLY what we were looking for. The farmhouse, Poggetta, where we stayed was beautiful and very affordable for the 3 total couples in our group. Very clean and comfortable inside with a perfect blend of modern improvements, without losing the traditional Tuscan villa feel. We loved getting up in the morning and drinking coffee outside enjoying the views. It felt so private and remote, and yet was a close drive to many larger towns. It really was perfect and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Also, their chianti wine was our favorite of all the wines we tried during our time in Tuscany. If I ever go back, I will definitely be staying there again. I can't imagine a more perfect match for us.

Really nice villa!

  • 4 of 5
The villa was more than we expected! Nice and clean, pool was just perfect for the children and better customer service you can't get! Everything we needed, we got.
Only thing that should be mentioned in description is that the road to the villa is not so good and really difficult to drive because the villa is situated on a high hill.
