In the heart of the famous wine region of Chianti in Italy is a magnificent 18th century estate in Tuscany which is home to a collection of beautifully renovated farmhouse apartments. Come and experience the breathtaking Tuscan landscape.
Around the sumptuous central villa, owned and inhabited by the Count Rossi di Montelera, there are a number of converted farmhouses, each of which can accommodate between two and sixteen guests. Each apartment is furnished with everything you could need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday, the estate is wonderfully peaceful and the surrounding area is full of vineyards, cultural attractions, local eateries and famous cities. Tuscany is a feast for the senses and this is the perfect base from which to explore it.
Hiking, biking and horse riding are all excellent ways to explore the estate and surrounding areas, the prestigious Ugolino Golf Club is just 15km away and you can play tennis at the club Rignano sull'Arno. Within the grounds you can have a guided tour of the wine cellars (along with a tasting!), or you could visit The Mall, a luxury outlet centre just a short drive away. There are some beautiful historic attractions nearby, not least the cliffs of the Valdarno, the architecture of Figline and the Abbey of Vallombrosa. Or you could take a day trip to the cultural cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa.
The estate is located in San Donato in Collina, about 10km southeast of Florence. Detailed driving directions are available and each apartment has a reserved parking space.
