Villa Diora A is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. Please find a general description of the complex below, and please scroll further down for a description of Villa Diora A.

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.  If you really want to dive into the past, do not forget to visit the museum room, located on the ground floor of the villa. There you will find the exposition of some historical relics that will remind you of the lifestyle of the eighteenth century!

In addition, at a short distance from the apartments, a path will lead you to the family chapel dating back to the sixteenth century. The chapel, that features an elegant and romantic façade, can be used, upon request, to celebrate weddings.

In the old manor house you will find Diora A, B, C and F. Diora A is located on the whole ground floor and on the east wing of the Villa,  on the first level. Diora F is on the first floor, on the west wing of the villa. Diora A and Diora F  and are richly decorated.  Diora B and C cover the second floor of the house. They can be reached through an antique internal staircase. Your privacy is severely preserved, as each apartment has a private entrance from a side of the main villa. Diora D and Diora E are part of the stone farmhouse, located in the garden, at a short distance from the swimming pool.

The whole complex can accommodate up to 31 guests. It is possible to use the whole complex as the venue of a wedding or other events.
