Villa in Chianti

Villa in Chianti

It is the birthplace of wine , a good one, par excellence. We are talking about the Chianti or, as it once was renamed in the eighties of the twentieth century because of the huge number of tourists from Britain and the United States of America `,”Chiantishire ” . 

Its rolling hills, surrounded by acres of vineyards and walking along the main street, white, surmounted by farms, villas and houses typical Tuscan farmhouse that can be rented for stays of a week or more. 

  • In the summer from our villa or farmhouse in Tuscany (perhaps with a pleasant pool to fight the hottest hours of the day) we can follow the work of the farmers who prepare plants for harvest in September.

  • In the autumn, with family and friends before the fire we spend hours tasting a “new wine” and smangiucchiando “chestnuts and ballotte” (chestnuts cooked on the coals or boiled in hot water).

  • In the winter of our Tuscan estate we organize fun rides in the towns of Chianti to the discovery of “festivals” (there are so many) and “markets” (especially d `antiques).

  • In spring when the countryside is an explosion of colors we can visit the treasures that this area survived for centuries: the `” Abbey of San Michele in Passignano “, the” Certosa di Pontignano “, the` round `circle of” Monteriggioni “. All postcard views for our pictures.

Not to mention that a holiday in Tuscany villas in particular a stay in Chianti can not include a tour of the most renowned wineries in the world .
