Close your eyes and dream of the classic Tuscan villa and you will probably have Casa Donata in your mind. This stone-built villa is immersed in the Chianti hills and as you snake your way along the white road which leads you to it you pass the immaculate vineyards, rise up and down the slopes and through shaded woods. The road then drops into the Villa grounds and opens up to reveal this wonderful villa and gardens.
Sweeping views from the garden provide the perfect backdrop. The owners of the villa run the nearby well known restaurant of La Cantinetta di Rignana and they occupy the main house and whilst they are mostly out at work they are still on hand to help with anything you should need. You are in contact with nature and the beauty of Tuscany and nearby you are in touch with the great culture of Florence, Siena and Tuscany.
Located next to the stunning pool there is Casa Donata. This single storey house is all on one floor and the French windows open out onto the pool. There are two bedrooms, one double and one double / twin. One family bathroom and an open plan kitchen / living room which lead out onto the pool area. The pool is the place where you will spend most of your time, basking in the hot Tuscan sun and playing around in the water. There is a lovely jacuzzi pool which has a marvellous waterfall feature which is guaranteed to entertain for hours.
Casa Donata is not the easiest villa we have to get to, about 3km of reasonable white road and a steep final approach. However having said this it is a truly special place to stay and we are pretty sure that you will not be wanting to leave. The nearest village of Badia a Passignano has a great selection of super restaurants (three great places to eat in a village of only about 10 houses!). You are sure to also visit the owner’s restaurant which enjoys some of the best views in Tuscany and people flock from around the world to dine here and taste his classic Tuscan dishes. All the villages of Chianti are reachable and Florence and Siena will certainly be on your itinerary. But we are sure that Casa Donata will be the highlight of your
