Description from owner
*** Wedding conditions: listed at the bottom of this page ***
Villa Benedetta is a beautiful historic residence that has been the beating heart of the Folonari family (a renowned name in the Italian wine panorama) for many years. Dating back to the early 1800s, the villa is located at the center of the family’s agricultural holding, that is currently producing internationally known wines.
After an extensive renovation of the villa in 2014, the owners have decided to convert it into a vacation home considering its overall wonderful characteristics, elegance and charm. The spectacular Tuscan surroundings are perfect for excursions either on foot, by bike or by horseback riding.
The park of the villa is immaculately kept and features furnished shaded areas dedicated to relaxing while enjoying the view on the stunning Tuscan landscape or al fresco dining (there is a new barbecue and a covered gazebo that sits up to 20 people).
The private swimming pool (size 40 x 16 feet) comes with a changing area, full bathroom with shower and a dedicated wi-fi internet connection.
The villa guests are always welcome to visit the cellars and taste the wine produced within the estates of the Folonari family.
Location: the villa is located in Greve in Chianti, which is considered the “entrance gate” into the Chianti region. The beautiful main square of Greve, Piazza Matteotti, is the focal point of the town and can be easily reached from the villa on foot (about 10 minutes walk), by bike, or by car (3 minutes drive).
At the Piazza Matteotti there is several excellent restaurants such as the Osteria Mangiando Mangiando, the Bottega del Moro or the Osteria La Terrazza as well as many other typical grocery stores, artisan shops and the famous Antica Macelleria Falorni (a Tuscan butcher that has been in the same spot since 1729). Nearby the square there is also a large supermarket.
In walking distance from the villa there is a bus stop where it is possible to take several buses to Florence or other nearby locations such as San Gimignano or Siena.
