A very special old villa that welcomes you with its attractive internal courtyard, ideal for outdoor dining, and its pleasant loggias on the ground and first floor.

It has been simply restored with taste, leaving the old structure and original materials of the house unaltered, such as tiled “cotto” floors and beamed ceilings.

Set in a tranquil spot among olive groves in the heart of Chianti Classico with lovely views of the surrounding countryside, a terraced flower garden and several shaded areas furnished with table and chairs. The swimming pool is 70m from the house and on a lower level.

The villa is furnished in the rustic style with antiques mixed with modern pictures in perfect harmony with the house. In fact, the house appears in a book, as one of the most beautiful houses and gardens in Italy. The book is available at the house, along with many others,

Four hours cleaning during the week is included in cost. On the ground floor there is a room used to store the owner's personal effects. It is only rarely accessed, and then independently from the back.

With three living rooms, and innumerable shady nooks and sunny places in the gardens, you can always get away from everyone for complete relaxation whenever you wish.

This house is wonderful for those in search of the real atmosphere of an old country villa.

Ground floor: living room with fireplace and dining area with stereo and access to outside, small living room with satellite TV and access to outside, kitchen (oven, small microwave, freezer, dishwasher, toaster), one double bedroom with private bathroom with tub (window).

First floor (also accessible from outside): living room with large fireplace and access to a lovely loggia that looks onto the internal courtyard, one large twin-bedded room with library, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms with bath, bathroom with shower, single room with stairs that take you up to the turret.

Second floor turret room: (min. height 140cm) one bedroom with 3 single beds, ideal for children.

At guests' disposal: large garden with fenced swimming pool (4m x 11m, depth 0,80m/1,80m, open from 14/06 - 4/10), washing machine in a separate room outside.

About this location

The Tuscany region

With its beauty, wine and an artistic legacy, Tuscany is a region that has attracted visitors for centuries. Its rolling landscape, its picturesque villages and its Renaissance art cities draw people back year after year.

Florence, in itself, has more world-class art than many countries. But there is also some of Italy's most striking Gothic architecture in Siena, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the walls of Lucca all an easy trip away. Stupendous art, beautiful countryside, famous wines and delicious cuisine is what this enviable region is all about. It was from here that the Renaissance spread out across Europe. From the Etruscan marvels at Fiesole to the della Francesca's of Arezzo, from the towers of San Gimignano to the markets of Pistoia, there are delights for everyone.

It was in Florence that Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and other brilliant 14th- to 16th-century Tuscan masters carved out art history. Brunelleschi's dome did wonders to the course of architecture, while Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio virtually created the Italian language. Tuscany is iconic – the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Palio in Siena, Florence's David and bistecca all fiorentina steak.

But there's far more to this land of world-famous art and architecture - slow-paced hill-towns to lunch in, vineyards and olive groves to taste wine in, fresh green pastures to stroll in, Ancient Etruscan sites around Saturnia, Arezzo's Giostra del Saracino or the long sandy beaches of the coast.

Castelnuovo Berardenga

Ponte a Bozzone is between Siena and the Chianti Classico area, a perfect central spot for exploring the whole of Tuscany, from the Val d'Orcia to the Val d'Elsa.

The towers of San Gimignano, the walled city of Monteriggione, the splendours of Florence and the medieval charm of Siena are all withing easy reach.
