In the heart of the tranquil Italian countryside bounded by cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, and forests, lies this historic estate overlooking the Chianti Classico Hills. Dating from the 13th century, this estate has a noble history and is one of the finest examples of traditional Tuscan estates in Chianti Classico, just a 30 minutes' drive from Florence.
This magnificent estate with more than 20,000 square feet of living space surrounded by five hectares of land boasts two luxurious villas, three atelier apartments, and a historic dwelling, the Fattoria Marzocco, a farmhouse offering four holiday apartments. The stylish interiors have been carefully renovated by local artisans using the finest Tuscan materials, which bring a quintessentially Italian feel and unparalleled charm.
The grounds of the estate are truly impressive: Mature cypresses lead to the entrance gate of the main estate, which includes a historic chapel from 1647 and classically inspired grounds dotted with marble fountains and sculptures. The grounds are adorned with four beautiful formal gardens (including a lavender and a rose garden), as well as olive groves, vineyards, and a private forest. The estate offers numerous amenities including a playground, table tennis, and three swimming pools surrounded by expansive terraces.
The property boasts a unique history and was once used as a convent for girls and later as an agricultural estate. In recent years, renowned Dutch painter Karel Appel lived and worked in one of the estate’s studios between 1989 and 2000. One of his sculptures, The Horse, can still be admired in the lavender garden.
