ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE, CHIANTI
The property stands in a small hamlet nestled in the green Tuscan countryside in a panoramic position in the heart of Chianti, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.
The property had a major renovation around 1800 taking on the structure of a manor house with attached cellars, stables and spaces for agricultural activities. The owner family in the 1960s started an agricultural business with production of wine, oil, cattle and pig breeding, and in the 1990s shifted it to accommodation activities. Starting in 2003, the villa was expanded and the cellars, stables and peasant dwellings converted into apartments for accommodation.
Today the complex consists of a villa of 10/12 beds and 6 apartments of about 100 square meters each for 4-6 people. The Villa has 4 double bedrooms all with private bathrooms, entrance lounge, living room with TV, large fully equipped kitchen, dining room with fireplace and laundry room with extra bathroom. The 6 apartments consist of living or dining room with fireplace, kitchen, 2 or 3 bedrooms and 2 or 3 bathrooms each. Still to be renovated 4 independent barns located on the property and suitable for various uses such as small spa and refreshment points for the enhancement of the accommodation business, including a cottage of more than 400 square meters now inhabited by the caretaker but after careful renovation probably the most fascinating object of the property.
The property, in addition to the private garden that surrounds it, is immersed in its 56 hectares of land, of which 6 ha are planted with vineyards with 3 ha certified to Chianti Classico and 3 ha to IGT, all fenced and in full production. 2 ha are planted with olive trees with 1,000 trees in production of extra virgin olive oil, there are fruit trees and the remainder is coppice. The villa enjoys its own private garden with large dining room and barbecue by the equipped private pool. The 6 apartments use another shared pool, gardens with gazebos, terraces with tables and chairs, and barbecue area. The parking lot accommodates numerous parking spaces and a charging station for electric vehicles.
