Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Vignale was lovingly restored in 2002 taking special care to blend the new with the ancient creating an old hamlet that has apartments that have every modern convenience. The large pool sits on the crest of the hill overlooking the vineyards in the valley below and across the Chianti hills beyond.
In the valley below the hamlet flows the River Arbia, the historic dividing line between Florence and Siena. Nearby there are a host of wineries that are filled with gastronomic delights and a dizzying selection of wine shops.
The largest house at Vignale, Sangiovese is an independent terraced villa that comfortably sleeps 6 people. It is perched on the edge of the hamlet with excellent wide-open views of the vineyards below and hills across the valley.
Laundry facilities available in the house. From the lounge there are breathtaking views of the vineyards below the house.
