Villa Diora is nestled in the Chianti countryside, surrounded by vineyards. The complex dates back to the sixteenth century and it is made up of a manor house, a farmhouse and a historic wine cellar. The manor house has been home to several italian historical figures since 1500. Its rooms are richly decorated and reproduce faithfully the old bygone times. The renovation works have preserved the charm of the past, although adding notes of modernity. Located in a panoramic position, it offers various amenities. The pool, overlooking a natural terrace, offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills. The tennis court, that can be used for no extra free, is available to those guests who want to have fun and stay fit. The tennis court has a concrete surface and it is 24 m long by 11 m large.
Underneath the villa, dug into the rock, is the large historic cellar where a number of wines that are produced in the surrounding vineyards have been aged and refined for centuries. It is possible, upon request and for an extra fee, to visit the cellar and taste a selection of wines.
