From the property there are glorious views over the surrounding countryside of vineyards and olive groves. The property is accessed by a 1.7 km unsealed road.
Surrounded by lawns and very well landscaped gardens, a wide lawn in front of the house is perfect for young children to play.

An internal courtyard houses an outdoor dining area with original old wood oven, dating from 1730.
The ground floor rooms are elegantly furnished with impressive antiques, while the upper floor bedrooms have more of a country house feel. Guests will enjoy the large traditional style kitchen, with beamed ceilings and large centre worktop. Very well equipped, it provides inspiration for creating the spirit of Tuscan cuisine. Further amenities include satellite TV, DVD player and wi-fi internet connection.The owner, a descendant of an old aristocratic family, lives with his young family in the adjacent house, managing his vineyard, which produces Chianti Classico DOCG wine and his olive grove, producing top quality olive oil. There are resident dogs at the property.
