Greve In Chianti has to be one of the best locations from which to visit and enjoy Tuscany, and this elegant period Villa is set just 2km away from this delightful town that has so much to offer in restaurants, bars, shops and markets. Villa Caprolo sits on the hillside facing west enjoying beautiful views of the Chianti countryside dotted with farmhouses and hamlets. It has an enclosed park with large wrought iron gates and a drive lined with huge cypress trees ending at the villa. The Florentine owner in restoring the villa maintained its original character, but added a contemporary feel to the house with bold colours, an ultra modern kitchen and designer lights and furniture. The ground floor has tall ceilings and an open fireplace in a spacious living room with an ornate ceiling. All the bedrooms have geo thermal heating and are climatized [via an under floor heating and cooling system] and all enjoy an ensuite bathroom. Here you have the benefits of both worlds, modern comforts and the timelessness of a classical villa. The infinity edge salt water swimming pool, furnished with designer loungers is set on the edge of the park, enjoying views of the beautiful Chianti countryside. Florence and Siena are both 40 minutes away, and then you have all the Chianti towns and villages as Panzano in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti all within arms reach. You can explore the magical countryside and then return home for an evening meal prepared by the caretaker who is also a professional cook, she can prepare wonderful lunches, dinners or even cooking classes.
