Villa al Monte
This old stone farmhouse and its guest house must enjoy one of the most picturesque and sort after views of the Chianti, it sits on a promontory about one and half kilometres from the stunning hamlet of Volpaia, not far from Panzano. Again the views are breathtaking, from the shaded dining loggia it seems that you can stretch your arms out and touch the nearby hamlet as the many farmhouses that stretch across the Chianti countryside. The private heated swimming pool is set on a paved terrace, furnished with sun loungers, chairs and umbrella's for shade, and just below the hot tub is set on teak decking to one side of the buildings. The interior is a blend of antiques and contemporary furniture, the bathrooms are modern, the kitchen well equipped and interesting contemporary art hangs on the walls. All very tastefully put together, making this a very comfortable private home.
