Our farm is located in the heart of the region of Chianti Classico near Greve, looking out over Montefioralle, a splendid medieval village ,in an untouched natural setting. It is on the top of a hill (1400 feet above sea level) with a magnificent 360 ° view. Even in the summer it stays cool,with a fresh breeze. The property includes a cluster of four houses that once served as a stopping place on the ancient salt road (there's still a trace of the road in the path which goes by the pool) as well as approximately 10 hectares (20 acres) of land, including four hectares of vineyards, an olive grove, a stand of cypress trees, meadow and woods. When we bought the farm in 1994,it was semi abandoned and the buildings were in terrible disrepair. Since then we have dedicated ourselves to restoring them as closely as possible to their original form, using only local and environmentally compatible materials and personally supervising every phase of the restoration down to the last details. The farm has a vineyard of about 4 hectares. The vines are registered for Chianti Classico and produce mainly San Giovese grapes along with small amounts of the Trebbiano and Canaiolo varieties. It is a vineyard, in part old and in part more recently planted, that we cultivate with great care, strictly limiting the use of fertilizers and chemicals. Currently we do not produce the wine ourselves. Until we finish reconstructing our own facility, we must send our grapes to the winery, Basilica Cafaggio di Panzano. In the farm there is also the private villa I MANDORLI ( see ID 59627) with private pool. At guests' disposal: Baby bed available free of charge.
Wi-Fi internet connection available free of charge. Common laundry room with washing machine (euro 5/wash). Distances: Greve in Chianti with all kind of shops at 6 km, Florence at 25 km, Siena at 30 km. The nearest shopping for food is about 2 km away from Montefili. The apartment, situated in a part of the carefully restored barn, offers a large living room with kitchenette, two sofa beds which turn into two full size single beds. The bedroom is up a few steps behind the kitchen. It is super large and has a nice double bed. There is an ensuite bathroom with shower finished in soft cream italian ceramic. The private terrace is covered by a grape vine. Even on a sunny afternoon there is an oak tree which will offer lots of shade.
