Villa Zobi lies inside the large estate of S. Andrea, which spreads out over 600 hectacres in the heart of the chianti classico region, and the main buildings of the company are housed in the ancient hamlet of Fabbrica. The villa is about 2 kms from the main buildings, in a panoramic position with a wonderful view of the chianti countryside, with olive groves and vineyards alternating with small oak woods. It is furnished with typical tuscan furniture and has all the usual comforts: dish-washer, satellite TV in the living-rooms, stereo with CD player, telephone, safe, washing-machine and a very well-equipped kitchen. In the enclosed garden, besides the private 5x11m swimming-pool, guests also have the use of a shady patio with barbecue, ideal for dining outside. In the village of Fabbrica you can visit the old wine-cellars and the oil-press, with the opportunity of tasting both wine and olive-oil. You can also buy wine direct from the farm. About 2 kms away you will find tennis-courts and 8 kms away a good quality horse-riding centre. Florence and Siena can easily be reached down the dual-carriageway (superstrada) and are respectively 20 and 40 kms away. You are also close to the best-known sightseeing in Chianti and to San Gimignano, which is little more than 30 kms away. Nearby there are several restaurants that offer excellent tuscan cooking and high-quality local wines. The property borders on the Antinori estates and is close to the splendid abbey at Badia di Passignano.

History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
