Description

This attractive villa is located in the heart of Chianti, near the village of Panzano. It incorporates a control tower built in the 13th century for its commanding position overlooking the Chianti hill; still today guests can enjoy uninterrupted views on the surrounding countryside both from the interior and the exteriors of the property. The house was designed to guarantee a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The interiors are comfortable and furnished in a classic way, with pieces of antiques, stone fireplaces and many ceramics made by the owner's father, a renowned Florentine sculptor. The covered verandah and the terrace are ideal for dining or simply relaxing while enjoying beautiful views of Chianti hills. Acquerello benefits of one of the most sought- after locations in Tuscany, just perfect for enjoying art and architecture, ancient hill towns such as Greve and San Geminiano, wine tours and delicious local cuisine. The towns of Siena and Florence are at short driving distance (both at less than 40 km away), and the lovely village of Panzano is just 3 km away, with traditional shops, good local restaurants and one of the oldest and the most renowned butcher in Italy. From the village of Panzano it is possible to take a direct bus to Florence, allowing easy day trips for visitors that do not want to drive around. The caretakers live in a separate and independent part of the house and they are at clients' disposal for any need, without interfering with their privacy. During summer time blooming shrubs and roses will make the garden look much more inviting than the pictures here show, as unfortunately they were taken during the fall.

Guest Reviews for Acquerello

Sarah M. (Auckland, New Zealand)

We had the best time!
It has always been a dream of mine to stay in Tuscany and this place, the position, the view fulfilled my dream.
The property was AMAZING, just perfect for us. We made daily use of the beautiful swimming pool this was especially good after a busy day exploring all the wonderful villages and towns nearby, we had such fun exploring.
When we ate in, we enjoyed sitting out on the verandah and taking in the beautiful scenery.
We would definitely stay here again, the rest of the family want to go now they've heard all about it!
Thanks for everything

The villa was a delight. We absolutely loved all the art and in particular the work by Marcella Fantoni, the ceramicist. Every room was adorned by beautiful pieces. It was like living in our own gallery. The caretaker and his wife were very friendly but discreet and helpful. The views were fabulous. A return visit sometime is a must.
