Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Villa Vianci is an old luxury villa dating back to the eighteenth century, located in the heart of Chianti Senese, just 17 Km away from Siena and 45 Km from Florence. It is located in a vantage position on a hill above the old town of Staggia Senese.
Recently subjected to a fine renovation and restoration, which has enhanced the charm of the Tuscan villa without altering its original structure, Villa Vianci is today an ideal place to enjoy a pleasant and exclusive stay under the Tuscan sun and to visit the most important art cities of the area.
It was originally used by noble families as the manor to which to escape to the countryside during the hottest months of summer. The villa belongs to our family from several generations and is now managed by the young owner and his wife who take care of their guests with attention and respect in a friendly and genuine family atmosphere.
Its location in the centre of Tuscany, a few km from the highway Firenze-Siena and near the historic intersection between Via Cassia and Via Francigena, makes Villa Vianci the perfect location to undertake tourist paths among enogastronomic, cultural and art-historical sites in the many typical places and villages of the area.

The Tuscany region
Sienna (Siena in the Italian spelling) is situated on three gently rising hills in central Tuscany, Italy. The Siennese are said to speak the purist form of the Tuscan dialect which, at the unification of Italy, became the national language. Sienna is quite rightly extremely popular with tourists but because it is a town and not a village like San Gimignano, for example, it usually does not seem excessively crowded.
The fine piazza, magnificent cathedral and museums, as well as the twice yearly palio and the interesting folk culture associated with it, make Sienna worth intensive study. Siennese painting and architecture of the Renaissance and later is second in importance only to that of Florence in the history of Italian art.
The walled town of Staggia, with its medieval castle, is in the commune of Poggibonsi, province of Siena. It's easily reachable from the exit 'Colle Valdelsa Sud' of the speedway Florence-Siena.
