Overview

Pool

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.

    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.
