Just minutes from Greve in Chianti, heading towards Il Cenobbio, the birthplace of La Monalisa, you turn left and follow a gravel road up to the very end. Pass through the wooden gates, park your car below the private tennis court and walk across the well kept lawn to the picturesque stone farmhouse which sits suspended at the end of the garden enjoying incredible views of some of the most beautiful countryside that exists. Farmhouses, vineyards as olive groves cover the hills with Panzano against the skyline and Il Cenobbio to your left. The farmhouse has been in the same family as the rest of the estate for generations, in all five hundred years. The owners who cherish this small farmhouse have been able where possible to maintain the original floors as the beamed ceilings. There are many steps between floors and rooms, as the restoration kept the original layout, only adding the bathrooms and a modern Tuscan kitchen. Lots of character, lots of history echoes the rooms within 3 foot walls that have remained standing for all these centuries. You have the modern comforts as air conditioning in the bedrooms, an outside living room and a dining loggia with a barbecue. The private swimming pool is set across the lawn, fenced for security with a gate and shade as loungers. The private tennis court is set further up, just above the parking area. After a long day visiting the Chianti villages or Florence, what a place to watch the sun drop behind the hills in the distance while someone cooks you an organised dinner with a glass of wine in your hand.
