Why Owner/Manager chose Greve In Chianti
This historic estate is located in the Chianti Classico region at Passo dei Pecorai, Greve in Chianti (30 Km south of Florence). It was bought by the Folonari family in 1971 and consists of 385 hectares of land 90 of which are vineyards. The estate dates back to 1300 and is well known for the quality of its wines. The Fattoria di Nozzole was first mentioned in the Cronache Fiorentine by Villani, an author of Tuscan history. We would like to share the beauty of these hills with our guests and let them know about our products which we have been preparing with so much dedication and work for such a long time.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique

Wonderful vacation home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Vecchia di Nozzole. The property is well appointed, conveniently located, beautifully furnished and professionally managed. Ms Oliva and the Folonari team did everything in their power to make our stay perfect.
Alicia and her party were adorable guests and we thank them for their appreciation. Very recommanded guests and we hope to welcome them again.
Wonderful holiday in Tuscany
Our group of 6 adults and 4 children had an amazing stay at this restored and lovely farmhouse. The weather was warm, the pool was inviting, and the surrounding neighborhood was majestic. Highly recommended this vacation home for anyone who wants to spend some relaxing downtime with family and friends under the Tuscan sun.
Thank you Lisa, it was nice to have you here and we hope you will come back one day.
Magical stay at Casavecchia Di Nozzole.
I brought my family for one week in July to celebrate my 50th birthday and the stay was absolutely perfect. We were 8 adults and my 9 year old daughter. The villa was beautiful. It has the charm of a Tuscan villa but all the modern amenities and I loved that every bedroom (but one) has its own en suite bath. The heated pool was terrific. It was cleaned every day and warm. We swam every day and night. The views were spectacular. The air so clean, and the stars at night were so bright. The hospitality manager Oliva was so nice and accommodating. We arrived to find a stocked fridge and anything else we needed, she quickly provided. Chef Alessio sent one of his chef’s to cook my birthday dinner the night we arrived and it was delicious. We had a 4 course meal with pasta prepared in front of us so we could see how it is made. We also had wine pairing and our waiter was very informative and friendly. The villa was beautifully situated close enough to many little towns to visit like Sienna, Pisa, Florence, etc. I highly recommend this place and will be coming back again. Once again thank you Oliva. 🙏�🙏�👍�👍�
What a great opportunity to celebrate a big birthday as the 50th in a wonderful environment! Tuscany is for sure one of the most romantic place . It has been great for Michelle to share that week with friends and family.
We are happy to had her as our guest. Communication with her worked well since reservation and the house was greatly respected. Thank you for the very nice review, we just do not understand why, since Michelle was so enthusiastic ,she gave us just one star L!!
The property exceeded expectations! Our entire family - three generations of us - loved our 2 week stay at Casavecchia. The setting and location were great - the vineyard all around us - making it easy to visit the wonderful places and sites in Tuscany... and then the sheer joy of coming home to our villa each night for wonderful family dinners (interspersed by trips to some local restaurants for some great meals). The house was spacious and well appointed - giving people enough personal space to - as my grandchildren say - "chill". The pool was wonderful and was used by all for welcome relief from the heat.
That all said... the property manger could not have been more helpful and delightful. Oliva not only made sure we were all comfortable and that things were OK in the house, she acted like an excellent concierge. She arranged dinners for us, arranged a tour and tasting at the winery, and she got us drivers to get all of 11 of us to the Paleo in Sienna (want to experience something exciting - see this!). Oliva is a star! We all hope to come back to the Villa again someday soon - this was truly a 5 star experience.
We thank Charles so much for his kind words.
According to the american expression " you need two to tango" we may say that it was a real pleasure to deal with all of you!
Charles and his family are full of enthusiasm, open to new experiences… Very glad to know that you were able to see and enjoy the Palio..so it was easy to help them in few things they needed.
Charles, we would love that you could come back one day, try to put that in your agenda!!
with our Kindest regards,
Oliva (your star), Angela , and the Folonari Family
A beautiful villa surrounded by vineyards in a great location!
We stayed at Casa Nozzole in June of 2019. The villa itself and the grounds it sits on are beautiful in every way. Originally when I booked the villa we had thought there would be more of us staying there but as it turned out we were only 4. Everything was sparkling clean and well kept and the kitchen well equipped. Upon arrival we were met by Oliva the house manager and she was a total delight! She gave us lots of helpful information regarding the surrounding area, ideas for restaurants, wine tastings etc. The house is just a 10 minute or less drive to Greve which is a small village but has everything you could possibly need. The drive to Florence is easy and not far to Siena or other surrounding areas. We arranged to have Chef Alessio come to the Villa one day for a cooking class and it was so much fun! He brought in all the ingredients needed and put us to work, then we sat down to a delicious dinner paired with wines that he had selected. We also arranged with Oliva to have a complimentary wine tasting at the Folonari winery on site. The young man who hosted the wine tasting was very well versed and informative of the Chianti Classico region.
Upon returning to Tuscany we would absolutely be delighted to stay at the Casa Nozzole again or one of their other properties in the area, all of which are spectacular!
Thank you again Oliva for making our stay so special!
Konnie and her group were great guests, very responsive in communication from the very beginnig and so nice people to stay with. Thank you so much for your nice words, to have met all of you has been a great pleasure. Shame there was not time enough to stay more with you and sharing more of the favorite places and things to do in the area.
Please let us know if you will ever come back in Tuscany! Here of course you'll be always welcome!
A Tuscan Dream in Every Way
Where to begin? If your desire in Greve in Chianti is defined by a quiet property full of old-world Tuscan charm surrounded by lush landscape and beauty, this is it. A family of 8 adults, we had everything we needed and more, complete with several very happy birds every morning over caffe on the back patio.
Olivia was wonderful! She coordinated our stay with easy communication and prompt responses. We had an issue early in our week-long visit with the oven not working which she had fixed immediately. The property was not only clean but also very comfortable. Additionally, the kitchen was stocked with milk, juice, coffee, olive oil and spices for cooking along with a beautiful loaf of bread and a huge selection of fruit so that we did not need to rush to the coop, allowing us to enjoy our stay upon arrival.
The property is close and convenient to shops in Greve. We loved walking the vineyard and relaxing around the pool and beautiful grounds when we weren't taking advantage of nearby day excursions to Siena, San Gimingnano, and Montefioralle. Firenze is only 14 miles away and an hour-long bus ride if you don't want to drive and park (Please note you must catch the bus back at the bus station which is different than where you are dropped off. We learned this the hard way!)
TIPS for your stay:
1. Ask Olivia to coordinate a tour and wine-tasting of Nozzole with Nic! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. Wonderful! And DO buy their wine and olive oil. Both are incredible.
2. On their list of preferred providers is Chef Francesco who will provide a phenomenal cooking class and meal which you help prepare right on the property. We highly recommend this incredible experience. He and Patrisia made it a highlight of our stay!
3. Don't miss the Saturday market in the heart of Greve in Chianti. There is also a huge antiques market here once a year the Monday after Easter which we had to unfortunately miss as it was the day we left.
4. Most of all, do not miss our favorite restaurant of two trips to Italy now — La Castellana in Montefioralle. Family-owned and an exquisite dining experience! Olivia will be happy to book your reservation for you.
We highly recommend this property and hope you love it as much as we did!
Gratzie mille e arrivederci, Olivia and Nic!
