About the property

Lovely restored country house with private pool & vineyard

Situated in Greve in Chianti, between Florence and Siena you will find this charming holiday farmhouse with a beautiful garden and lovely views. The farmhouse is ideally equipped for a great holiday with family or friends. Its own pool (6x12 m), vineyard & olive groves and its own private golf driving cage provide the perfect setting for a country holiday without having to forego the conveniences of modern life. The farmhouse is very well appointed with a choice of 3 separate outdoor dinning areas. The pizza oven at one of the terraces provides you with the opportunity to test your own pizza making skills and creativity. The house has been tastefully renovated and refurbished in Tuscan style and is ideally located to visit many Tuscan historic & cultural sites. The house has a carport for two cars and additional parking for three more cars. The location of the property is secluded, yet the village of Greve with all its amenities is only a few minutes away.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with this property. It was absolutely beautiful and in a great location very close to all we could need in Greve. Our party of seven was completely comfortable, including our children (ages 5 and 7), who thoroughly enjoyed the many toys and games they found in the storage bins. We swam every day in the lovely pool and enjoyed long evenings sitting outside and making pizza in the pizza oven. Jacqueline was very responsive and answered all of my questions. We would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing Tuscany vacation!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

The location is prime right among the olive and grape orchards. It's very secluded and beautiful. It was a bit hard to find as we are accustomed to street signs. He owner has a husband and wife team that maintain the property daily and they were great.

The home is big and spacious. We tried sleeping the the separate smaller building but it was just too hot. Either it was insulated differently from the home or it receives direct sun but there is no way to sleep in there In July.

The pool was large and clean, a great way to end each day.

The villa is a 7 minute drive to the small town of Greve. There are many vineyards that offer tastings within minutes.

The views were fantastic, highly recommend it.

Wonderful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for its central location to everything in Tuscany and were extremely happy with our choice! Jacqueline was extremely responsive to all inquiries, which was helpful for those of us from the US traveling to Europe for the first time. The home was large, very clean and we had all the necessary amenities to survive our first few days without a trip to the Coop. The kitchen was well stocked with good quality pots and pans and very sharp knives. Beds and linens were good quality and super comfortable. The outdoor space was stunning, an entertainers dream! We loved being close to a charming city, Greve, that offered everything we needed for our 2 week stay, post office, TIM, grocery store, various places to eat, drink, Laundromat for larger loads, gas stations, etc. We used this property as a home base for exploring Tuscany. Rent a car for your own exploring or heading into town for provisions, but take advantage of a driver as well to really relax. Make sure you plan on spending several days on the property as the views are amazing and change throughout the day. The pool was superbly maintained and became our favorite place for happy hour at the end of a long day of touring. We took advantage of La Cantina in town on 2 occasions for pizza and Ristoro di Lamole for a very special last night. All in all, our group would HIGHLY recommend this lovely home to anyone seeking all the comforts of home coupled with delightful Tuscan charm! Thank you for sharing your home Jacqueline!

Fantastic stay in farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in the house. The children very much enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the good Italian life. The house is well equipped, especially also the kitchen, which made cooking fun. The beds are nice too and have nets to protect from mosquitoes.

“Romantic Rural Family Holiday in Italian spheres”

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this well equipped and lovely decorated romantic house. The terrain around is so large that it enables you to make walking tours on your own property. The children love the spacious pool and we of course enjoyed the sunbeds. Lots of historical sites within one hours drive. Visit the lovely village of Greve, just nearby. Do your shopping on the Saturday market in Greve in Chianti and do not forget to eat an Italian Ice cream at Lepanto’s café. In the evening you can make your own pizza in the authentical pizza oven on one of the terraces of the house. The house has lots of space so you can easily go with two families or a group of friends. We enjoyed it and had a wonderful holiday.

Greve in Chianti
Car: recommended

This entirely private farmhouse with its own vineyard and olive grove is situated in the heart of the Chianti countryside. Greve, the capital of the Chianti Classico, with its historical market place, lovely shops and restaurants is a 2 minute drive away. It is ideally located to visit the nearby historical cities such as Florence (25 kilometers), Siena (40 kilometers), San Gimignano (45 kilometers), Luca, Pisa and the Versilian coast. Italy's oldest golf and country club, Ugolino, (15 minute drive) is well worth visiting.
