The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of the Chianti region, between Florence and Siena ( 30 km far from Florence,40 km far Siena), Podere San Filippo is the perfect position to discover the Chianti Region

Visiting gorgeous countryside and taste delicious wines in the heart of Tuscany

The Chianti territory with its hilly countryside of incomparable beauty lies in the very heart of Tuscany, administered by both the Provinces of Florence and Siena

It is difficult to trace its borders since only the mountains of Chianti in the East separate it from Upper Valdarno in a natural and neat way; the remaining territory fades into the hills of the Arbia, Elsa, Greve and Pesa rivers.

Mediaeval villages, castles, churches, abbeys, monasteries, cottages and villas lie one after the other in a fantastic itinerary that exalts the activity and inventiveness of man; centuries of work have modelled the hills of this region and the alternation of the olive groves and the forests creates a harmony unique to the world.

Along Via Cassia, or alternatively the faster Florence-Siena superstrada, one can follow again the paths once taken by pilgrims and wayfarers who, during the Middle Ages, reached Rome from Northern Europe with everything that it had to bear: parìsh churches, small towns, hospices, abbeys. Via Chiantigiana, on the other hand, is a more rural path that throughout its length crosses the classic wine region.

In any case, the visitor will be offered an unforgettable countryside always varying and harmonious and so diverse in colours and in atmosphere with the changing seasons. There are many ways to get to one of the parish churches, castles or isolated towns, silent witnesses to the historical and artistic richness of the Chianti region.

It does not matter how one gets there: whether by car, motorcycle, bicycle or bus, there are many possibilities for staying and enjoying a few days' holiday in the relaxing atmosphere of Chianti, tasting the gastronomic specialties of the region accompanied by wines that have made Chianti famous all over the world.

Mild Climate in Spring and autumn season, Warm in Summer (35-40°), Cold and dry in winter time, Tuscany is perfect in every time of the year with its season event( Palio, Flower festival, wine Festival etc) country fetivals and markets.

Lots of activities are available : Horse riding, hot ait ballon, swimming, trekking, tennis courts, golf, as well as cooking classes, wine and olive oil tours, sightseeing and much more.

Tavarnelle Val di Pesa

Its economy is based on agricultural and wine making (since 1932, the territory has been part of the Chianti area; located partially in the subzone of the Chianti Classico and partially in the subzone of the Colli Fiorentini). In the municipal district of Sambuca Val di Pesa, there is a large industrial area.

BACKGROUND

Tavarnelle was once a Roman station, called Tebernulae in a document dated 790 AD. It later became part of the Florentine Republic, but was never involved in the territorial wars between the Florentines and the Sienese. Until 1892, it was part of the municipality of Barberino Val d'Elsa, and on January 1, 1893, it gained autonomy, becoming its own municipality.

MONASTRY

The Badia in Passignano is an ancient monastery that already existed in the Middle Ages. In 1049, it adhered to the Vallombrosana reform. It housed a school that Galileo Galiei attended.

CHURCH

With a façade made of alberese stone from the XIII century, the church has one nave and features frescoes by Domenico Cresti, called il Passignano, because he was born in that area. In the partition, a woodwork by Michele Confetto, there are two panels by Ghirlandaio.

In the crypt, which dates back to a previous roman construction, the founder of the Vallombrosano Order, Saint Giovanni Gualberto, was buried here in 1073. Externally, the very large monastery looks more like a fortress than a cenoby. The defensive city walls date back to the 1400s but it seems that several sections were built in the XIII century. In the refectory of the monastery, there is an interesting Last Supper by Davide and Domenico Ghirlandaio.

Closed in the late 1800s, the monastery complex became a private villa and was transformed, according to the esthetics of the time, into a neo-Gothic castle. In 1986, the Vallombrosani monks reclaimed possession of the monastery. Another must-see is the Passignano village that has a beautiful house-tower and the church of San Biago. From the terraces of the castle, one can admire the breathtaking countryside of the Chianti area.
