A protected national monument, Villa Bracciano was built over 500 years ago by the Ricasoli family, wine producers for generations. Located in Panzano, the very heart of the Chianti region, this very beautifully restored old house exudes Tuscan charm and history and offers spectacular views across hills and valleys blanketed with vineyards. Inside, vaulted stone ceilings, terracotta floors and enormous open fireplaces are matched with lovely antique furnishings and comfortable couches and armchairs. Two air-conditioned bedrooms. A large loggia to the front of the house offers a shaded area for al fresco dining with uninterrupted views of Radda-in-Chianti. This is an outstanding location for those interested in Tuscan wines with several world-renowned vineyards - and a number of excellent restaurants - within easy reach.
Max Occupancy: 12
