Description

Located on top of one of the highest hills of the Chianti Classico, this Villa was a castle fortified in the 12th century by the Vallombrosan monks of the nearby Badia a Passignano. The stone façade faces a courtyard, closed by a crenelleted wall. The private garden overlooks the Chianti hills, offering an overwhelming view of the surroundings.
A complete restoration has brought the building back to its ancient splendour.
Inside, the medieval structure was decorated with Renaissance elements in pietra serena during the Quattrocento. All the rooms have wooden ceilings and floors paved with the original terracotta tiles.
On the ground floor there are two bedrooms with en suite bathroom, decorated with hand made glazed terracotta tiles; an ancient kitchen provided with modern cooking equipment, cooker, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with freezer, toaster, coffee machine and washing machine. The large dining room has a decorated stone fireplace and a sitting corner with satellite TV.
In the smaller apartment, included in the castle but with a separate entrance, a cosy kitchen equipped for breakfast, a sitting room on the ground floor and a bedroom on the top floor are the ideal location for those who want more privacy during their holiday with relatives and friends!
Outdoor, on the meadow, deck chairs around the pool allow to relax. 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.
