This historic estate is a working vineyard located in the rolling hills of the Chianti Classico region only 20 minutes north of Siena. The carefully restored villa sits atop a hill among vineyards and olive groves with stunning views of the Chianti countryside. This hilltop was a key lookout post for Siena during the medieval ages when Florence and Siena were constantly at war. There are fragments of the 7th Century watchtower where smoke signals were used to warn of enemy advancement. These fragments are now the fireplace in the kitchen dining area. With its vantage point today one has spectacular views of the Chianti hills. The house and property offer a peaceful retreat with many fine features and extras for those who want to explore the Tuscany countryside while relaxing in their own luxurious home.

The three-story villa and surrounding property has plenty of room to accommodate a large family, groups of friends or a corporate retreat.
