PRIVATE STRUCTURE. In a hilltop position, overlooking the unique scenery of the green, vineyard-covered hills of Florentine Chianti, stands L'Antica Cantina. Originally an Augustinian monastery, this welcoming historic residence dates back to 1480, the year of its construction. In the 16th century it hosted a young Michelangelo, during the period in which he frescoed a juvenile Pietà in the opposite church of Santa Maria in Marcialla, still visible and open to the public. (This is the only existing fresco of Michelangelo, apart from that in the Sistine Chapel). After various modifications, the property underwent its last transformation in the 18th century as a farm. In 1918 it was bought by the current proprietors and inhabited by the family until 1996, after which it was transformed into a tourist structure. Still today it is possible to admire much of the fine Empire-style furniture that was produced by the in-house carpentry workshop at the time of Napoleon, in the fashion of the time inspired by Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, Grand Duchess of Tuscany. Within the little hilltop borgo of Marcialla, this old residence overlooks the green hilly landscape between Siena and Florence, in the heart of the Chianti region, famous throughout the world for its picture-postcard panoramic views and for the excellence of its wines. This magical atmosphere will give its guests unforgettable moments between the historic interior of the villa and its typical 19th century garden, located directly inside the property with the heated pool, guaranteeing unique privacy and relaxation. In the medieval cellar, located in the basement of the house, you can, on request, book a visit accompanied by wine tasting of the L'Antica Cantina wines. Its location makes this property particularly suitable for organizing interesting excursions in the surrounding area as it is well connected to the main motorway networks and is just a few kilometres from the principal art cities of Tuscany such as Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and the little characteristic villages of Chianti Monteridolfi, Panzano, Badia a Passignano. N.B. In a separate wing of the house lives the gardener who will not disturb the privacy of the guests nor will interfere with the use of the park and pool which are for exclusive use of the guests.
