This charming private home is set in a sleepy village enjoying beautiful views in the Chianti hills near to Greve in Chianti. The old stone farmhouse is set at the bottom of the village with a large garden that leads into the countryside overlooking the beautiful valley dotted with farmhouses, vineyards as olive groves and woods, it’s a truly magical place. Outside the walled garden at the rear of the old stone farmhouse is what you could consider the centre of the village where in the late hot afternoons some of the local residents sit down and talk about events and watch the sun go down on the other side of the valley. The owners restored and converted the old stone building into a very comfortable home, with a cook’s kitchen with everything you could wish for to prepare fantastic meals. You have three dining areas, a sophisticated dining room with an open fireplace, outside in the courtyard or as all locals do, in the kitchen there is a large dining table again with a fireplace. The bedrooms are spacious with modern bathrooms and the master suite with three large windows is the only one to lack A/C as it’s not needed. All the windows have insect screens. The private swimming pool is set below on a lawned terrace with loungers and shade. There is a cover for the pool for security and to keep it warm. As with many 400 year old farmhouses, it’s set into the hill side so you have more than one ground floor, on the lower ground floor there is a gym and a summer sitting room with a TV, great for entertaining the children. Casa Paggetti is a very comfortable private home offering every comfort to ensure a fantastic base to visit and enjoy one of the most beautiful areas in the world, Tuscany but remarkably still unspoilt by the hordes of tourists. The beautiful old stone farmhouse ensures your privacy and comfort with all of Chianti’s magical villages and towns to visit at your finger tip without forgetting that you are immersed in a charming Tuscan village meaning you are going to need to learn a few words of Italian to exchange with the curious and friendly locals.
