This farmhouse is situated in one of the most beautiful positions, right in the heart of Chianti Classico. From its secluded position, the windows frame a picture of the lovely Chianti countryside at its best. The interiors have been restored in an authentic Tuscan style and the living spaces all open onto the garden or an internal patio, making the rooms very light and airy. The Chianti villages, as well as Siena and Florence, are all within easy daytrips from this farmhouse.
On the patio there is a lovely vine-covered pergola with a marble table, ideal for “al fresco” dining. To the front of the house, the furnished terraces provide a great spot for enjoying the views. On this side, there is a pathway leading to the private swimming pool (12m x 6m) with overflow effect, in a panoramic position. The pool has a large shallow end for children. Please note that to the rear of the property is a converted barn where the housekeeper lives and a resident cat lives at the property. Also, the 1 km road leading to the farmhouse is not suitable for cars with low suspensions.
Ground Floor: The entrance leads to a large sitting room with a fireplace which opens onto the garden and internal patio with a furnished pergola. There is a second sitting room with a dining area and a big kitchen opening onto a terrace and the garden. There is a coat room and a twin bedroom (beds can be pushed together to make a queen bed; upon request) with a bathroom.
First Floor: A double bedroom has a four-poster bed (160 cm) and there is a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. A second bedroom has a single bed with its own exit via a stairway to the garden. The tower bedroom, up a narrow “ladder” staircase, has a French bed (140 cm – comfortable for one; cozy for two) and wonderful views. Please note that this bed fills the width of the room (refer to photo). There is a bathroom with a shower and a second twin bedroom with a bathroom. There is a loft overlooking the sitting room furnished with a sofa and books and finally, a large master bedroom with a queen-size bed (160 cm) with an en suite bathroom.

Its situation, beautiful architecture, the eclectic selection of bedrooms, the multiple quiet places where people could be by themselves and the delightful housekeeper.
A lack of comfortable outdoor seating to sit and watch the extraordinary view - really my only criticism.
The villa was embedded in the heart of Chianti with numerous wineries and several small villages to explore nearby.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Radda in Chianti. No, we couldn't walk, but that didn't matter.
Tips or Restaurants:
Rent a 4-wheel drive car to access the steep dirt road (1 km) leading up to the villa. Our front-wheel drive car struggled to maintain traction.
Check In Out:
The housekeeper made it very easy.
