There are two structures: Villa and Country House (fienile, where hay was once stored).
The Villa can house up to 8 guests and the modernised Fienile can host 4 people.

The luxury living of the Villa is mixed in with a touch of real rural life; you can enjoy organic produce (courgettes, artichokes, tomatoes and herbs etc) from the kitchen garden, as well as jam from the fig and pear trees, wine from the vineyards and olive oil from the groves.

The Tuscany region
Just 20 minutes fromFlorence, Villa Asana offers hospitality in the wine region of Chianti.
Here, away from the sounds of the city amongst medieval hilltop villages vineyards and olive groves, you will find tranquillity and relaxation while your imagination drifts to an ancientTuscanywhen those villages such as San Gimignano, Radda in Chianti, Panzano in Chianti ... were built.
Chianti is famous for its wine and the best way to taste it is by visiting cellars with a good group of friends under the Tuscan sky while listening about the way of producing that particular kind of wine. You may ask for Guido Sommelier (www.guidos-tours.it) who is a trusted guide/driver and he will be pleased to organize for you a tour of the cellars.
Otherwise you can also drive there with your own car but farms and cellars allow guests to sample their produce, buy their wine, oil and local products; so make room in your car if you'd like to take some yummy things away with you.
If you are a lover of the countryside and beautiful landscape, you can walk down small roads leading through cypress-lined avenues and rolling hills on your way to Greve, Radda, Gaiole, Panzano, Castellina, Montefioralle, Volpaia, the abbey of Passignano or you can go mountain biking through these fascinating medieval villages.
If, on the other hand, you want to take a break from tranquillity and approach a more cultural side and try out the nightlife, it will be a pleasure to visitFlorencethe heart of Renaissance, with its museums cathedral, art galleries, bars restaurants and excellent shopping areas.
Florence is not the only fabulous Tuscan city that is close by; Siena with its wonderful “Piazza del Campo” and the major event: “Palio di Siena”, San Gimignano with its medieval Towers, Pisa with its "leaning Tower", Impruneta where terracotta originated, Montelupo famous for its ceramics, Lucca, Volterra, Montepulciano, Pienza, are all easily reachable.
Villa Asana is the perfect base from which to discover the whole Tuscany travelling at the most an hour.
