About Anna Piazzini

My name is Anna and have been associated with La Gigliola ever since I can remember....it is my home, it is my hobby, it is my job and it is my passion.

I was born in Montespertoli and have lived here ever since....so what this beautiful area has to offer is no secret to me and am very happy to pass it on to my visitors.

I have two children, both involved with the agricultural side of the farm. The son is in charge of all that is vineyards, olive groves, wine making, bottling and marketing of our products. The daughter who is a naturopath, grows medicinal plants at the farm and then produces extracts and medicinal oils from them.

My guests become my friends and the friendship lives on after their holiday is over and most of the new visitors are referrals from the past ones.

Anna Piazzini purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Why Anna Piazzini chose Montespertoli

This property has been in my family from before I was born, so it has always been part of my life. La Gigliola is located in the heart of Chianti in private and secluded whilst close to important towns like Firenze, Pisa, Lucca

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are in a peaceful place, just outside the village of Montespertoli (3kms) where everything can be got and done. The property is 300Ha and we are manufacturers of our own brand of wines and olive oil. Authentic old villa, with tower and what once were the residential homes of the local farmers. Restored to its former beauty and tastefully decorated. Our tenants are our friends and parties with food, wine, music and dancing are organized for them to share in Italian hospitality and friendliness. Wine tastings are once a week . The top of the hill position, gives the property a 360 degrees view over the stunning Chianti hills. Big garden, tennis table, tennis, 5 pools, bicycles on loan.
