Villa Chianti is a splendid 19th Century country villa with private swimming pool, situated in a lovely position on the site of an ancient castle and tiny farming hamlet and surrounded by fabulous unspoilt views of the unique rolling countryside of the famous Chianti region.
The villa has been fully restored retaining many of its original characteristics such as beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and archways to form spacious and comfortable accommodation furnished in elegant Tuscan style. The ground floor of the villa which opens directly onto the lovely large terrace and swimming pool, has a fully equipped country style kitchen, and an archway leads to a luminous dining room, with long table and chairs and beautiful fireplace. There is also a laundry/wash room with washing machine, and handy w.c and 2 showers.
Stairs lead to the first floor of the villa where there is a sitting area, and an inviting lounge with a large fireplace, settees, armchairs, satellite television, DVD and stereo. There are also four lovely bedrooms, three with double beds, one with twin beds and each with private shower room. This floor also has direct access via the main entrance and external steps to the pool and garden area. A further flight of stairs leads from the first floor to a mansard floor with sloping beamed ceiling where there is a further double bedroom also with en suite shower room. On this floor there is also a sitting room with two sofa beds (opened only on request to accommodate up to two extra persons).
In front of the villa is a lovely garden area secluded by hedges, where there is a pretty private swimming pool and a large paved terrace with shaded area with table and chairs for eating al fresco.
