Filigrano is a large wine-growing estate located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. It crowns the top of a hill and boasts magnificent views of beautiful valleys to the Castellina in Chianti opposite and San Donato in Poggio. Centre of this beautiful and spacious property is the antique hamlet: the centrally situated main house, with the large green courtyard in front of it, is surrounded by the smaller adjacent buildings: an old barn, several farmhouses, and a pretty chapel surrounded by cypresses and a garden pavilion. The gardens are immense: neat lawns and flower beds surround the various houses and paths; vineyards, olive groves and woods gently merge into the open, Mediterranean landscape. A 2 km private gravel road leads to the hamlet. The estate stretches across 60 acres of farmland which lies 300-400 meters above sea level. The wide view over the hills is outstanding. The home-made wine is also excellent. The fattoria (farm) products can be purchased in the hamlet: Chianti Classico, table wines, vintages, white wines, Vinsanto, Grappa and olive oil.
The nearest shops are 3 km away in San Donato, approx. a 10 minute's drive from the apartments. This pretty Medieval village offers grocery stores, a cappuccino bar, a bank, post office, gas station and two restaurants. There are many other small trattoria and specialty restaurants in the area - enough to try a different one every evening! We will provide you with tips for this region. The Chianti town of Castellina is only 13 km away and the famous Medieval town of San Gimignano a mere 25 km. Florence and Siena are both just 35 km from the estate.
All houses on this extensive estate are built of stone. The apartments are located in the main and adjacent buildings. In the design of the apartments great care was taken to ensure a maximum of room and privacy. Each apartment has its own private outdoor area with nice garden furniture, and the apartments are at a convenient distance from one another. They are furnished in a rustic country style and have harmoniously mingled old with new. The atmosphere is typically Tuscan: terracotta floors, wooden open-plan ceilings, large fireplaces. All bathrooms and kitchenettes have been made in 2009.
Extensive outdoor areas provide enough variety: mountain bikes can be hired, there are hiking trails on the estate and you may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the farm, there is a children's play area, a hard tennis court dating back to the early nineties, a barbecue and, of course, a large swimming pool. The pool is a proud 16x8 meters of which a small area (4x2) is designed as a baby pool. The pool is about 300 m from the apartments. Located on a large, sunny plateau it boasts magnificent views in all directions. A stone patio with sun loungers borders the pool and a few steps away you will find a large lawn with further seating arrangements.
There are further apartments in an ancient farmhouse about 500 m distant from the main house (Filigrano Nuovo / also featured in our portfolio); Filigrano and Filigrano Nuovo share the lovely pool and the tennis court.
Additional amenities include: playground, fridge-freezer and a private outdoor area, the pool area is gated and the views are wonderful, a shower and a toilet, the pool has a stone patio and lawns, for communal use: use of washing machine, tennis court (hard court) and a lovely pool with baby pool area, hob with oven, there are shaded areas, all apartments are equipped with satellite TV, footpaths and mountain bike trails (5 bikes for hire), large lawns.TripAdvisor property ID 2049702...Read more
