Amazing retreat amongst Antinori Family vineyards of Chianti Classico
Magnificent Medieval Villa, situated on top of one of the highest hills of Chianti Classico, is a farm family with two adjacent entrances and pool with panoramic view.
The first entry brings you to the apartment for 9 people with 4 bedrooms and bathroom en suite. On the ground floor there is a spacious dining room with a stone fireplace and a large fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, washing machine and coffee maker).
The second access is for another apartment for three people with a single bed on the ground floor and a double bed on the first. There is also a small kitchen and a bathroom.
This apartment is part of the property that you rent, but as far as it has a separate entrance, it allows you to have your holidays with friends and family and at the same time to have a little more privacy.
A paved corner with wrought iron chairs and a large table is the perfect location for a drink or a dinner ‘with a view’: at sunset, it offers the magnificent show of the twilight in Chianti when the lights of the villages and country houses turn on one by one in the night.
For the lovers of history and art may interest the fact that in the twelfth century this villa was a castle foritfied by Vallombrosa monks of the nearby Badia a Passignano. The house has been completely renovated and restored to its former glory so it preserves the Renaissance elements in Pietra Serena with which the house was decorated during the fifteenth century. So the holiday in Villa Badia can become an unforgettable experience! :)

Amazing 12th-century Monks castle with views!
Poggio al Vento (hill of the wind) is a very special place. Originally a Monks castle from the 1100's, it has been painstakingly and lovingly restored by Pauline and her family. 4-foot thick walls of ancient stone make up the walls of this house. Amazing panoramic views abound from all windows and the yard. There is even a 12th-century chapel attached to the house, used by the monks for 1 special service per year, at the end of November. Pauline was kind enough to give us a tour of the chapel. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience.
Two beautiful apartments (soon to be 3!) make up this wonderful building. All modern conveniences are included. Bathrooms are all modern and updated, as are the kitchens. Pauline made sure we had everything we needed, and was extremely helpful and attentive. She even met us in town and gave us a tour of the Badia in Badia A Passignano.
This is a quiet country house. Time must be spent in the yard sipping wine, eating a fine meal, or just enjoying the views. The dirt road up to the house is not as bad as it first appears! We had a Mercedes sedan and a Fiat sedan, 2-wheel drive vehicles had no problem, even in heavy rain.
We hope to return some day to Poggio Al Vento. It was an unforgettable true Chianti Tuscan experience.
We are so happy you have had a pleasant stay at our place, so we would be very glad to host you and to be a part of your unforgettable vacation one more time! :)
Waiting for you back soon,
Giulia and Pauline
