Chianti Siena Tuscan Countryside

Brief Description

 

Built in the typical “Chiantigiano” style, Villa Sassi was restored recently, reviewing the large interiors and giving it a touch of charm and elegance. The villa presents handmade details in beaten iron, and it has typical Tuscan tiles encountered so often in all the villas from this area.

The perfect location of this villa provides you a sense of how living between Firenze and Siena is, by enjoying and combining the countryside lifestyle with the cosmopolite one given by the nearby cities.

Some of the most renowned restaurants known for their traditional Tuscan cuisine are reachable by foot.

The estate consists of 3 buildings: the main villa and 2 smaller guest houses. All measuring a total of 1300 m2 of living space and a total of 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms.

The land of this property has approximately 2 hectares and it contains a 11,5 x 6 sq. m swimming pool, a tennis court measuring around 610 sq. m, with synthetic ground floor, a metal fence, and a 32 sq. m dressing room.

This property is perfect for families who wish to have their first/ second home in Chianti, to enjoy the magic of this area, but also need to remain close to the city and the airport.

The landscape is typical to this area, not isolated, but yet in total privacy.

Location

Located in a beautiful hillside location near an area characterized by the presence of many nature reserves and is only a 20 minute drive from Siena and only about an hour form Florence. Both are easily accessible thanks to the Firenze-Siena highway.

Heading towards Siena, visitors certainly deserve a visit the famous restaurant ‘Arnolfo’ which holds a Michelin Star http://www.arnolfo.com and it is near the new ‘Hotel Castello di Casole’, which has won for two consecutive years the award for best Luxury resort. The area is popular especially in the summer for touring international class.

If you fancy going a little further south, within an hour through beautiful areas of the Chianti region are well-known towns like Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano.

If you reach Florence, it opens a world of things to do and places to visit. For example, in the vicinity you can find typical restaurants, from the most traditional to the most sophisticated. One of which is the ‘Enoteca Pinchiorri’ on via Ghibellina. The restaurant offers an elegant blend of contemporary design and Tuscan paintings from the nineteenth century, in addition to its sophisticated environment and of course an extremely refined cuisine http://enotecapinchiorri.it.

Walking through the center of Florence, everywhere you look you are surrounded by the Renaissance history of the city, home to artistic and architectural masterpieces. Among the most iconic places is undoubtedly The Cathedral that was designed by Brunelleschi and Giott. Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, are all places where you can find works on display by artists such as Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci http://www.uffizi.com.

Hidden among the wonders of the Renaissance is also the Vinaino, which is world known (but only by word of mouth) local restaurant, where you can taste the culinary specialties of Tuscany combined with the lively atmosphere of the town center. Florence in particular, is a city always active and busy throughout the year from international tourism.
