Description

This impressing villa is a classic, ancient Tuscan ‘borgo’ / medieval hamlet.  The house boasts a typical Chianti tower constructed over 1000 years ago, and all rooms in the house are grouped around a paved central courtyard graced with typical Tuscan arches and stone walls. In an architectural history commissioned by the owners, it was discovered that at the height of the Renaissance, the property belonged to the storied Gherardini family of Florence. The family’s most famous descendant was none other than Lisa Gherardini, or Monna Lisa, the subject of possibly the most famous painting in the world. 
It is entirely possible that guests will sleep in a room which Lisa also occupied! There are stunning views over the Conca d’Oro valley from almost every window, and during extensive renovations the owners have taken the greatest of care to preserve as many original details as possible.
All systems within these ancient walls have now been updated and modernized, and now the house offers eleven double bedrooms, 7 with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning throughout. 
Please note that while the house can accommodate up to 20 guests, the lay-out of the rooms also works extremely well for smaller groups of up to 10.  For groups such as these, we simply close off some bedrooms on the higher floors of the tower – access to all common rooms (kitchen, living room, wine-cellar, courtyard) remains the same.
