Superbly situated on a tranquil and panoramic hill in the Chianti region, in the heart of Tuscany, equidistant to Florence, Arezzo and Siena, this beautifully impressive Villa sits within an extensive landed estate.

The villa is within walking distance to Cavriglia, a typical Chianti town.

A very well manicured garden offers ample space to enjoy the outside areas shaded by lush trees; the gazebo area is ideal for dining al fresco .

The 2 panoramic pools, surrounded by olive groves, are about 50 mt from the villa and easily accessed via a large path.

The pools, which conjures the illusion of infinity views, measures 7x14 meters and the smaller adjacent pool is 1,5 x14 meters; the pool area is fenced.

The villa has recently been completely restored and refurbished to a very high level and transformed into a charming country villa steeped in atmosphere and history.

Formerly the home to gentry from Florence, the villa features many historical reminders of this era in the neoclassical building style.

Inside the restoration has retained all the architectural features and details complete with authentic period furniture.

Each room has its own individual style and feel with great attention given to the interior design and finishing, yet affords all the modern conveniences such as air conditioning and satellite TV.

The Villa is located on the Chianti hills; the nearest town at only 1 km is Cavriglia. Cavriglia is a nice little town with pharmacy, grocery stores, coop, lovely churches, restaurants, theater and shops.

From here a beautiful road leads into Chianti area:
Badia Coltibuono, Gaiole, Radda, Castellina, Greve and Siena.

This is a land where, more than any other place, tradition and daily life exist side by side in perfect harmony.

Montevarchi, situated in the midst of what is known as unspoiled “wine country” - with its vineyards, olive trees, castles, medieval hilltop villages and churches - is one of the more lively towns south of Florence.

Montevarchi is the neares big town; the history of Montevarchi dates back to circa 986, when pilgrims and travelers stopped here on their way to and from Rome.

Within 30/40 kms there are Florence, Arezzo and Siena (the first two comfortably reachable also by train from the station of Bucine that is less than 10 minutes by car).

Today the area is famous for its contribution to the international fashion industry and boasts the location of prestigious fashion outlets like Prada and "The Mall"
