The Tuscany region
The Chianti area in Tuscany is one of the most beautiful areas in the whole region, as well as one of the most well-known by visitors. The unique landscape, with green, gentle hills covered with wide fields of vineyards and olive groves and small stone villages in characteristic soft colours have inspired artists and photographers for generations.
Castellina in Chianti
Villa Fermini is a beautiful, detached farmhouse at the centre of an agricultural estate that produces excellent Chianti Classico wines and extra virgin olive oil. The farmhouse dates back to Etruscan times when the entire estate was an important Etruscan settlement. Traces of the original Etruscan plans can still be found today on the property mainly in the hamlet and in the owner's villa. The estate has been in the family of the current owners for many generations and dominates several hills and corresponding valleys that are planted with vineyards and olive groves.
The borders of the Chianti region are not clearly defined but in general it extends over the provinces of Florence and Siena, covering all of the area between the two cities. The Chianti wine area extends further beyond the two cities and even toward Arezzo, Pistoia and Montepulciano.
Villa Fermini is perfectly located to explore this whole area. The nearest village, Castellina in Chianti is 7 km from the house and contains shops and restaurants. The beautiful city of Siena is 25 km away and Florence is 50 km away. Other well-known cities such as Perugia, Montepulciano, Arezzo and Lucca are all accessible by car.
