Villa del Chianti
This newly refurbished villa lies in the Chianti hills and there is no mistaking you are in Tuscany – the views of the surrounding valley and olive groves assure you of this. Villa del Chianti is a comfortable family villa with a great private pool and is located in a strategic position for exploring the Chianti wine region, Florence and the multitude of villages and towns which make up this region.
The loggia is the ideal place to enjoy evening meals and from here entry is into the open plan living room and dining room. There is plenty of space here to spread out and relax. From here you pass into the kitchen which is well equipped and there is also a laundry room with washing machine and ironing / drying area. The ground floor is completed with a bathroom and a parlour plus a further patio area where there is the barbecue. From all the ground floor rooms there is easy access to the gardens.
The first floor has four bedrooms, all comfortable and spacious. One double has an en suite bathroom and there are a further two double / twin bedrooms. The final bedroom is a single and has access to a roof terrace which enjoys marvellous views. There is also a family bathroom. All bathrooms have showers.
The gardens are well maintained and the private pool is about 20m metres from the main house and surrounded by olive trees. There is ample space around the pool for soaking up the sun or lying back and reading a book. Throughout the property there are ideal spots for a lunch, evening glass of Chianti and evening family meals alfresco. The estate is made up of two houses, Villa del Chianti and another behind the villa which is sometimes occupied but is completely independent.
Whilst Villa del Chianti is a rural location there is no shortage of places to visit and Figline Valdarno is only about 10 minutes away by car and there are many villages to explore. Without doubt you will head into Florence (easily reached by train) and Siena. Villa del Chianti offers a good family holiday villa in a great location for a relaxing Tuscan holiday.
