Villa - Description
The castle, surrounded by the Medieval hamlet and located on the Florentine Chianti hills, dates back to the 11th century. It was built in a dominating lookout position (400m a.sl) to enjoy a wide view over the properties of approx. 200 hectares, consisting largely of vineyards and olive groves, and over the surrounding territories. In the past, celebrities such as Petrarca and Dante stayed in the castle, which today, thanks to a careful restoration, offers all the amenities to enjoy a wonderful and relaxing holiday. The large halls and the Italian-style garden provide excellent backgrounds to celebrate weddings and other important events in the castle. The very particular swimming pool in the garden is built partly inside and partly outside the Limonaia. The antique furniture in perfect harmony with its surroundings decorate the interiors. Peaceful position, although there is a road at 50m passing below the property. Central heating.
