Overview

This beautifully restored farmhouse sits on a hilltop in the stunning Alto Chianti countryside. The whole property is charmingly furnished and boasts traditional terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and wood beamed ceilings.

The house has a large garden surrounding it and a 6 x 12 m swimming pool. The paved courtyard in front of the property, with its two covered seating areas, is a perfect place for al fresco dining. The house itself is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the local area.

Looking out over woods and vineyards with views of the surrounding hills and the castles of Tornano and Lecchi, this farmhouse offers a fantastic base to enjoy everything Tuscany has to offer.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • There is a mobile phone made available which you can top up to avoid those data roaming charges!
  • The gazebo is the perfect place to take a break from the sun while keeping an eye on those in the pool.
  • The interior is traditional Tuscan and the wooden beams exclude the warmth of the villa.

What you should know…

  • Pets are not allowed so Fido must stay at home!
  • A rental car is advised to make the most of the area.
  • When minimum occupancy is booked, certain rooms may not be accessible (subject to owner's discretion) - best to enquire with us beforehand

From peeling the spuds to helping with the service, our chefs will ensure you have the most relaxing – and definitely the most delicious – holiday you can dream of.

  • Oliver’s Travels did a wonderful job!

    Posted by Catherine on 09/08/2016

    The holiday was wonderful, the villa was better than the photos had lead us to believe, the kitchen was unusually well stocked and all was fantastic. Oliver’s Travels did a wonderful job with absolutely no hassle.
