Villa rental in the Chianti with superb location for visiting the hill towns yet keeping Florence at arm’s length. Tour the less-traveled Casentino, source of the Arno river where you’ll find enchanting villages and monasteries scattered over forested mountains and plains.
The villa rental lies along the south-eastern edge of the Chianti on a hill surrounded by cypress trees and olive groves. The small village of Bucine is about 1 mile away. Within a few miles of the villa there are several excellent restaurants. All necessary provisions can be found in Montevarchi.
Distances: Bucine 1 mile, Montevarchi (A1) 4 miles, Arezzo 17 miles, Siena 27 miles, Greve-in-Chianti 31 miles, Poppi 35 miles (1 ¼ hours), Florence 36 miles (1 hour), Pisa 96 miles, Rome 150 miles.
The owner has created a very comfortable living space both inside and out. He used typical building materials outside, modern appliances, and a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings inside always keeping in mind the aim of his guests – to relax in a beautiful setting. The house itself is made of stone and features a large covered loggia on the second story with lovely views of the hills. The grounds of the villa are spacious and afford a stunning view of the surrounding countryside.
