Property Description

Villa il Prato is a phenomenal air conditioned 11 bedroom Chianti Countryside villa located just outside the picturesque town of Greve, about 40 minutes from the city of Florence. This fantastic staffed mansion traces its origins back one thousand years when a tower was erected on the site, and probably was first used as an independent splendid villa in the early 18th century. Immersed in the forest, the estate is surrounded by fields, vineyards and olive trees and offers an outstanding view of Panzano. The estate has been restored with all the modern conveniences while faithfully and lovingly preserving the original characteristics of Tuscan architecture and traditions.

Nestled on the Chianti hills between forests and streams, Il Prato is part of an organic farm, with an historic wine cellar in operation since 1404. The estate features also other 2 sister villas to rent in Chianti, sleeping  respectively 22 and 18 people.

 The heart of the estate is its renaissance villa, built in 1300 by the Gherardini family, and surrounded by gardens that fill the spaces between rows of cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves.
