Villa Vinci is set in the perfect location to explore Chianti and Tuscany. Chianti is a vast hilly area located in the centre of Tuscany. The land was originally farmed thousands of years ago by both the Etruscans and Romans, They worked the land to produce olive oil and wine, giving rise to the variety of countryside that we see today.
The Chianti area includes the medieval towns of Castellina, Radda, Greve, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Gaiole. Villa Vinci's central provides the exclusive opportunity to visit and come into close contact with this rich and varied area of Tuscany.
From the terrace of the villa you can admire the beautiful medieval castle walls that surround the village of Monteriggioni. The town still preserves most of its 13th century-era buildings and unique examples of a medieval Tuscan town.
On the edge of an extensive plain and at the foot Monte Maggio near Villa Vinci, guests can also visit the abbey of Abbadia a Isola, a rare example of a Romanesque church in the Siena area, composed of three naves and three apses, surrounded by a small village and the ruins of medieval fortifications. Inside the church you can see important frescoes that have been carefully preserved.
Explore the land between the two most important cities of Tuscany, Siena and Florence. You should definitely not miss a tour of San Gimignano. From every direction, the first thing that will strike you as you approach San Gimignano are the thirteen medieval towers that overlook the valley and mark the skyline of the town. Walking through the streets of the village, you can still breathe-in the atmosphere of the small workshops of artists, craftsmen, potters and goldsmiths.
Also in the area, we highly recommend a visit to the old town of Certaldo, whose origins date back to 6th century AD. The town is mostly famous for being the birthplace of the poet Giovanni Boccaccio and, it delicious lesser known special onions.
For those who want to explore off the main roads, we suggest a drive along the Via Volterrana, with unusual landscape, hills with continuous ups, downs and curve after curve. It is very different from what is commonly thought of Tuscany. A must along this route is, of course, the town of Volterra. It dates back to the 3rd century BC, and to enter it you have to pass under the famous gate "Porta dell'Arco", this is a unique example of Etruscan construction still in perfect condition.
