Set between the splendid provinces of Florence and Siena, is one of the most popular and well-known areas ofTuscany: Chianti, a hilly region consisting of wooded areas and land planted with vines and olive trees, dotted with numerous, perfectly preserved, medieval villages like Greve, Panzano, Gaiole, Radda and Castellina, rich in history and architecture and offering very high quality food and wine. This is the authentic area for the production of Chianti Classico DOCG, an historical wine marked by the unmistakable pink label with the symbol of the Black Rooster on gold background which, over the years, has continued to maintain its valuable characteristics. The property is located a just few kilometres from Greve (about 18 km), a picturesque borgo famous for its large central piazza, Il Mercatale, which since ancient times has hosted fairs, markets and cultural events, overlooked by historic buildings of particular artistic importance, such as the neo-Renaissance Town Hall and the Church of Santa Croce, with a 14th fresco depicting the Virgin and Child and a triptych by Bicci di Lorenzo, dated 1420. Strolling along the porticoes that surround it are craftman's shops, wine bars and restaurants offering local produce and culinary specialities. A few paces away from the central piazza is the Museum of Sacred Art and the Wine Museum which, in addition to the exhibition of a number of typical tools for the production of wine and a remarkable collection of corkscrews, offers a tasting of about 200 different wines, for each of which is given a computerized explanation. About 2 km away is the tiny borgo of Montefioralle, the birthplace of the navigator Amerigo Vespucci, a must if you want to appreciate the unique panorama seen from the hill. The area offers plenty of opportunity for recreation: nature and sports fans can go horse riding, cycling, hiking and play golf (at Impruneta, about 16 km away, is the prestigious Ugolino Golf Club with an 18-hole course). The area is also interesting for its numerous designer-label outlets, such as Reggello (Fashion Valley and The Mall - 17 km), Montevarchi (Prada - 28 km) or Barberino di Mugello (Barberino Designer Outlet - 60 km). The little village of San Polo in Chianti, about 4 km away, has all services and shops on site to meet the needs and requirements of the guests. The property is within easy reach of the airports in the region, such as Florence (44 km) or Pisa (105 km). The nearest A1 motorway exits are 13 km away (exit Firenze Sud coming from the north) and 18km (exit Incisa-Reggello coming from the south). Finally, to avoid the problem of parking, close to the property are the railway stations of Figline Valdarno (11km) and Incisa (12km), with direct connections to Florence.
