With 570 m2 of floor area spread over three floors one finds spacious accommodation, arranged symmetrically with four principal rooms per floor. Wonderful panoramic views from all the rooms to the front of the villa can be enjoyed as well as from the terraced gardens.

The Gardens and Ground

In total there are 9 hectares of land that sweeps around the properties providing olive groves and 5 hectares of established vines.
The 5 hectares of established vines produce a range of grape varieties including Sangiovese, Merlot, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Trebbiano Toscana, Greco, Vermentino Bianco, Malvasia del Chianti and Moscato d'Amburgo producing five wines with good local recognition and the possibility to create international distribution.
