Perfect for a large gathering of family or friends, this restored Tuscan farmhouse has superb grounds, facilities and service. Situated in sought-after Chianti wine country, within easy reach of iconic Florence, Villa Marte is not only a fantastic base for exploring this fascinating Italian region but an unusually well-equipped venue for luxuriating in style, with a welcoming team on hand to make your stay truly special.

Lush vineyards and olive groves carpet the surrounding slopes as you wind through the timeless landscapes of Chianti to the villa. Enveloped in an extensive landscaped garden, flanked by a wide terrace, the 200-year-old stone villa sets a striking silhouette, topped with its distinctive dovecote tower and terracotta tiled roof.

Attractive sitting and dining areas are carefully laid out in the best parts of the garden for panoramic views and cooling shade, so you can either gather together or find a private spot. Start the day with a tranquil coffee on the terrace gazing across vineyards, sip a glass of velvety Chianti Classico to accompany a delicious lunch before a siesta by the pool or sit back with a book in hand under the shade of a cypress. The choice is yours. A wander through the garden takes you past tall vines, poplar trees and sweet smelling aromatic herbs down to the inviting pool where you can cool off in the heat of the day.

Despite its impressive scale, the interiors feel welcoming, and the homely style perfectly complements the rural setting. Country furnishings incorporate pretty floral fabrics and solid wooden furniture with traditional brick arches and wooden beamed ceilings. A spacious open living space incorporates two kitchens, a long dining table and plenty of sitting areas for everyone, with Wi-Fi and a television room for those who prefer to stay connected.

Equally comfortable and spacious, the eight bedrooms of the main house each have an en-suite bathroom and can be air-conditioned in the hot summer, although the unique tower bedroom does have the edge over the others with its rooftop views on all three sides. Across the garden is a well-furnished cottage for four guests, perfect for a family or those who appreciate their own space.

The piece de resistance has to be the spa with its sauna, jacuzzi and massage bed where wellness treatments can be arranged, perhaps after a morning sightseeing in Florence, a trip to a beach or a tour of the wineries. Villa Marte truly sets the scene for a wonderful break with just the right mix of fascinating sights and relaxation.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • As the grounds are open and extensive, children need to be monitored, particularly around the pool and jacuzzi
  • Considering that accommodation is divided between the main villa and cottage, bedrooms should to be chosen prior to arrival so everyone has their preferred option
  • For groups of 12 people or less, certain parts of the villa and cottage may not be accessible (subject to owner's discretion) - best to enquire with us beforehand
  • The unpaved gravel road leading to the villa is well maintained but unsuitable for low slung vehicles with luggage so choose a sturdier hired car

Villa Marte is located just a half hour drive south of Florence in Chianti, a region which many consider is the heart of Tuscany. Famous for its delicious Chianti wine and fertile hills, the region is a magnet for wine buffs and foodies alike.

For art history lovers, a visit to Tuscany is to experience at first hand some of the most important settings and artworks from the Italian Renaissance, such as Michelangelo’s David in the Accademia and Brunelleschi’s Duomo in Florence.

The nearest town to the villa for groceries and a choice of restaurants is the charming town of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, just 3 minutes drive from the villa. A traditional stop off point between Florence and Siena since the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can sense its historic routes as you explore the surroundings. Incredible works of art can be found in the monasteries and churches which punctuate the landscape in the area.

There is so much to see in this part of Tuscany. Be sure to visit the tall towers and learn about the fascinating history of San Gimignano, just 20 km away. Try the nearby winery of Castello di Verrazzano for wine tasting in the magnificent setting of an 18th-century castle.

Within a short drive from the villa, you can join the main road which will sweep you into Siena or Florence, or for a smooth ride in, just leave the car in nearby Poggibonsi station and take a train.

Florence is nearer and the larger of the two cities, with its amazing collection of Renaissance art and architecture, a fantastic range of boutiques and a wide selection of restaurants.

Siena is about an hour away and a must-see for its an array of fabulous churches, galleries, restaurants, Renaissance and Gothic architecture and a stunning central piazza, the venue for its famous Palio horse race.

Food plays a central role in Tuscan life so enter into the spirit, find a scenic spot, sip on a glass of Chianti Classico and be sure to try the region’s best seasonal produce in one of the many farmers' markets or restaurants. From light tomato Panzanella or Fagioli bean dishes to wild boar stews and fresh pasta, all finished off with mouth-watering cantucci biscuits and Vin santo dessert wine, Tuscan cuisine cannot fail to disappoint.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Villa Marte is a wonderfully memorable setting for a family holiday with its spacious lush grounds, inviting pool area and proximity to exciting places to explore.

Children cannot fail to adore running around the lawns by the villa while the pool will provide hours of fun. On hot summer days, there’s plenty of cool natural garden shade while little ones can also have a cool siesta indoors as all the rooms are air conditioned. Those with babies need not bring a travel cot and other baby equipment as it is available for rental if need be.

For a real taste of Tuscan home cooking, there are some good local restaurants where children are always welcome or a cook can come over and prepare delicious meals for you in the more intimate setting of your home which is always a memorable experience.

There are so many interesting places to explore in the area with the top two being Siena and Florence. Head through Siena’s winding cobbled streets to the impressive main square where the famous Palio horse race takes place. Older children will enjoy the challenge of climbing up the tower there for fabulous views over the terracotta rooftops below.

The choice of places to visit in Florence is endless. Visiting galleries can be balanced with a trip to the magnificent Boboli gardens for a stroll or picnic. After a morning admiring artworks at the Uffizi, the promise of a generous helping of creamy gelato in a cone or large bowl of fresh pasta at a local trattoria cannot fail to delight children of all ages.

A trip to the Tuscan coast is always a hit for children. Set off first thing in the morning and in just over an hour you can be on the beach for a welcome mid-morning coffee or ice cream and invigorating swim or paddle in the Mediterranean at one of Tuscany’s sandy, family friendly beaches. It really is la dolce vita!
