This typical Tuscan estate is located on the rolling hills of Chianti, near the village of Castellina in Chianti. It is a property of about 40 hectares comprising a part of woodland, arable land and a large portion used for olive groves, from which the DOP extra virgin olive oil is produced. The olive grove is a beautiful setting for the three buildings that stand on a knoll overlooking the valley of the Pesa stream. The main villa, dated around the 14th century, retains the characteristics of the constructions of that era: the facade and part of the interior with exposed stones, the original “chiantigiana" wood beamed ceilings, pavements with handmade terracotta, and a large chimney of newer construction. The house consists of three floors which are totally renovated in accordance with the Tuscan tradition. The ground floor is about 120 square meters now divided into a large kitchen with a working fireplace, dining room and living room in which there is a large fireplace of the late 19th century. On the first floor there is a bedroom with a balcony overlooking the beautiful hills of Greve in Chianti and Panzano, the bathroom with shower, sauna and hot tub, two more bedrooms and a further bathroom with shower and laundry. Upstairs, 35 square meters approximately, there is a single bedroom with bathroom and shower; the latter room enjoys the most striking view of the valley. In the exterior of the first building there is a perfectly functioning old wood oven with attached woodwork and a storage room. The second villa, currently intended for guests, is newer, dated around the 19th century, and has been renovated dividing it into two floors of about 90 square meters each. The ground floor, with a beautiful stained glass window on a small lawn surrounded by a lavender hedge, consists of a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs, which is accessed by an outdoor staircase on a beautiful panoramic terrace, there is a living room with a fireplace, a small kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The two apartments are connected by an internal staircase located in the former stable now transformed into a large disengagement area. Surrounding the main villa and the secondary villa there is a rustic English garden, with terraces of olive trees, oaks, cypresses and fragrant aromatic plants. The 12x6m pool is accessible by stone stairs that respect the style of the Farmhouses, and it is surrounded by a hedge of oleanders and Corbezzoli. The estate is about 6km from Castellina in Chianti, the nearest village, 30km from Siena and 40km from Florence.
