Fontecaresino, located in the hills of Chianti, in the heart of Tuscany, with ready access to the culinary, cultural and artistic heritage of this region, is only 4 km from Gaiole in Chianti, 10 km from Radda in Chianti, 35 km from Siena, 45 km from Arezzo and 55 km from Florence. Our close proximity to numerous wineries, museums, churches, cathedrals and fine restaurants make this location incredibly convenient for the curious traveler.

Olive trees grow around the villa and the property is surrounded by woods of oaks, chestnuts, pines and whitewoods. The views of the hills are breathtaking, only a few other farmhouses are visible in the distance. Beautiful and serene walks in the woods and surrounding countryside are always available to our guest.

Built in the seventeenth century, the property was part of the "Badia di Coltibuono" farm for several hundred of years. The villas have been recently restored for comfortable living. The restoration was done with the intent to preserve the integrity of the original buildings by the Architect Marta Lonzi.

The Villa accommodates up to 8 people and has the exclusive use of the swimming pool:

"really something special"

We stayed Fontecaresino 1 over the Easter holiday period and were very impressed. A real gem hidden in the hills. The surrounding gardens where beautiful and well kept. While it was a bit too cold to use the pool it really look enticing and must be a joy when the weather is warm. The house is spacious and furnished enough to make the stay comfortable. Some of the furnishing were dated and could be refreshed but overall the place had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We also found the location of Fontecaresino convenient to visit the different parts of Tuscany / Chianti region, which is one of the most beautiful regions in Europe. We would recommend the property without reservation.
