The Azienda Agricola LECCIO is in the hills of Chianti Classico between Castellina in Chianti and Greve in Chianti, on the border of the provinces of Siena and Firenze, surrounded by beautiful villages rich in history, culture and interesting sights.
In the main farmhouse the medieval tower dating from the XI century overlooks the valley of Pesa river. These towers were important for the domination of Chianti during the wars between Siena and Firenze. When they lost their military function they were turned into residences with farms alongside.
Currently the farm consists of 120 acres of woodland and fields cultivated with vineyards and terraced olive groves following the rules of the organic farming.
The agritourist activity started in the 80’s with two barns converted into elegant, well furnished apartments with modern kitchens and bathrooms, open fireplaces, antique furniture and satellite TV. The accurate rebuilding of the house has not changed its authentic characteristics related to the ancient past cultures, because we wanted to preserve an important past of this territory: the entrance with exposed stone, the old fireplace and the floors in old terracotta etc.
Each apartment has its own shady and furnished terrace area, with use of the SHARED panoramic swimming pool in the summer months (May 1st- Sept.30th). A common laundry is on disposal at the premises. Wi-fi in common areas.
Leccio house can accommodate up to 6 people (2 double bedroom and 1 twin room).
This house is on two levels with entrances on both levels. An external terra cotta staircase leads to the upper level and provides a place to sit and enjoy the view. The ground floor entrance is from a private gravelled garden which opens into a large eat-in kitchen. A gazebo provides the perfect spot for breakfast or outdoor dining. On the upper floor there is a large sitting room with an inglenook fireplace where the alcove seating provides a cosy place for conversations around the fire. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - one with a shower and the other with a bath tub.
The house is furnished with '800 and the early ‘900 prints, paintings and objects that allow people to experience the feeling of being in a very special cozy guest house of chianti.
