Podere Margherita is sited on an ancient pilgrim path and its history dates back to Roman times. From here religious pilgrims travelled while making their way up to this sanctuary, first nominated in the early 1000's, before proceeding on to Rome. Until recently used as a farmhouse it is now a lovely vacation rental for groups from up to 12 people. The spacious villa has six large bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The bedrooms provide a spacious retreat and all enjoy lovely views of the valley or garden. Memorable meals take place in the large formal dining room, on the shaded terrace overlooking the pool and the valley, or around the wood-burning pizza and bread oven with barbecue grill. The panoramic pool looks towards west and has stupendous views. The grounds are fenced and gated for security with ample parking, and the road access is excellent.

Golf
The well-known golf course at Ugolino is within easy reach of Podere Margherita.
Mountain bike routes
There are several mountain bike routes in the Chianti area.
Travel
A car is needed to explore the Chianti region, although the area immediately surrounding the villa is excellent for walking or cycling. The nearest airports are in Florence and Pisa, and Bologna airport is also within reach.
Distances
The villa is a scenic 6 km drive from the lively small town of Greve in Chianti with its distinctive piazza. The town offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, a wine and olive oil tasting centre, banks, shops and a supermarket. There is a regular bus service to Florence, which is a convenient and relaxing way to reach the centre of the city. In Panzano you will find a grocery shop open also on Sunday morning and a nice open market as well. Siena is also within easy reach, along with San Gimignano and Castellina in Chianti.
Markets, wine-tastings, food
On Saturday there is a weekly market in the piazza of Greve, and during the year there are seasonal festivals in the area: flowers, antiques, wine, and specialty foods. The location is at the mid-point of the Chianti wine trail and there are many vineyards that offer wine-tastings and direct sales. A local cook can be hired to prepare and serve typical local dishes (to be requested on the premises).
Further details
Approximately 100 metres distant from the villa the same owner has another smaller house diveded into two apartments suitable for 4 people each (Podere Antonio / also featured in our portfolio). It is completely independent, with private entry, private garden and its own pool. It has two apartments each with two bedrooms and one bathroom. Both houses can be rented together for groups up to 20 people.
