Numerous traces of Tuscany’s centuries old culture can be seen in its landscape: the unique architectural evidence of the region’s long, powerful history has contributed to creating charming views that have remained unchanged over the centuries, never ceasing to excite and astonish visitors. Badia di Passignano, in the heart of the Chianti district, is one of these magical places, an impressive, isolated architectural structure that stands out against the landscape, surrounded by cypress trees, silhouetted against the hills, vineyards, olive-groves and woods. Villa la Badia is one of several properties that originally belonged to the Badia or monastery which, over the years, were transformed into prestigious dwellings, creating a small, very exclusive and private residential area. The villa has the solid stone structure of a Tuscan farmhouse with a small turret-dovecote. Its elevated position offers 360° views of the surrounding hills that are covered in woods with occasional breaks to reveal cultivated fields. The recently completed renovation work shows the care, passion and excellent taste that the owner, an interior designer, has dedicated to this property, preserving the original materials, using antique elements, such as doors and fireplaces, and carefully choosing the furnishings, fittings and fabrics, which have been sourced from all over the world: the end result is truly surprising, a balanced blend of elegance, refinement and comfort, that makes this villa a truly exclusive destination. Outside, in addition to the furnished reserved areas where guests can sit and eat outdoors, the ancient basin that used to be a washtub has been transformed into a magnificent 18 x 4.5 meter sunken swimming pool, with salt water chlorination. Upon request, additional beds are available in the barn, situated at the entrance to the property. The villa’s isolated position offers guests the chance to experience a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday (the property is reached by following a dirt road that climbs uphill for the last 500 meters.

The house was absolutely gorgeous and stunning . It was the perfect place that allowed my family, husband and I to relax and recharge after a long draining year. The views that the house had were breath taking and the decor was so warm and charming. The kitchen made you cook and that was just what I was looking for. The caretaker was lovely and available did we have any questions. I highly recommend this house and I would love to stay there again very soon!
I am so happy that I am being asked to write this review. I was so lucky to find this house, I went with a large group to Tuscany and this house not only fit us all in but the house is so close to Florence that is was so convenient.
The house itself was so beautiful much more then the photographs and then what we had expected. The care taker was there to greet us and was there did we have any questions at all. The pool was so beautiful that all we wanted to do was be pool side the entire time. They cooked amazing foods for us and the service was spectacular. I truly did not want to leave as if flew by so quickly.
there was nothing negative I could say at all. The house was beautifully decorated and it had all the amenities one could ask for. The bath rooms were so modern and the excursions around the area were really fun. Wine and food tastings.
Two thumbs up all the way... the place was amazing!!!!
