Description

Architecturally stunning independent house (320 sq m), protected by the Italian Ministry for Culture for its historic and cultural significance, sleeps 8.

Set in the idyllic Chianti countryside between Florence (c.26km) and Siena (c.40km). The pretty market town of Greve-in-Chianti, with a wide range of shops, cafés and restaurants, is just 3km away.

A former church, with medieval walls & 17th-century interior, and attached stone farmhouse, have recently been converted by a leading Italian architect and featured in Architectural Digest magazine. They sit at the heart of a tiny and ancient fortified hamlet, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, woodland and open fields. The house enjoys serene vistas all around, stretching to the Apuan Alps 70 miles away. Leonardo da Vinci was inspired by the scenery here in his landscape painting.

The house is far more than just a rental property: it is a home, lovingly decorated by skilled Italian fresco artists, furnished
