Greve in Chianti (Firenze) - Ancient villa of medieval origins, located inside an small hamlet in the heart of Chianti a few kilometers from the center of Greve, famous for its vineyards and Tuscan landscapes that warm the hearts of fans of good life all over the world .
The property, reachable from the famous Chianti road, with about 500 m of white road, has great privacy, and it is located in an isolated position, inside an ancient village where there are a couple of renovated farmhouses, a church and a small shop that sells wine and local oil: the villa of over 700 square meters overlooks the Chianti landscape, and has an enclosed garden where there is also the splendid 10mX8M swimming pool, as well as a plot of land that is not far from the property, which measures approx. 4 hectares.
The renovation of the property is recent and has been able to better highlight all the historical characteristics of the house, such as the large lounge with fireplace and barrel ceiling, rather than the halls on the upper floors with fireplaces and windows with views that could be renaissance’s paintings for their beauty.
In the 3 levels where the villa is developed there are 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, as well as two splendid panoramic terraces.
In the large fenced garden there is a further annex of about 140 square meters to be restored which could become a beautiful outbuilding.
Greve in Chianti can be reached from Florence along the Via Chiantigiana. It can rightly be considered the capital of the Florentine Chianti, as it is completely immersed in its territory and constitutes one of the largest and most important inhabited centers. At the intersection of the three major communication routes: the Via Chiantigiana, the road to reach the Valdarno and the road to the Val di Pesa, Greve in Chianti has developed over the years as a center of commercial exchanges and much of the city life it runs around Piazza Matteotti. The square is very pretty, has a triangular shape and is framed on three sides by arcades under which you can walk. It is animated by restaurants, historic butchers, wine bars and other small shops with artisan products, every Saturday it hosts the market with stalls and in September the exhibition of Chianti Classico Expo, watching over her the statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano and the inevitable Black Rooster , symbol of the wine produced here. The atmosphere is typical of ancient villages, where time passes slowly and one almost feels the duty to slow down and relax, to fully enjoy peace and tranquility.
