This beautiful property was originally a small rural complex of three buildings on a hillside in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Surrounded by green hills and vineyards, it has wonderful countryside views. The town of Castellina in Chianti is just 1.6 kms away and both Florence and Siena are within an easy drive.
The restoration of the property has been done very sympathetically, keeping the original character and details, such as the cotto floors, archways and exposed wooden ceiling beams. The rooms are comfortably furnished in a Tuscan country style and amenities include satellite TV, CD player, internet access, telephone and fax. A baby cot and highchair are available on request. An additional bedroom suite is also available on request, in the second house, at additional cost.
