Description

This comfortable villa with private pool is located in an extremely panoramic position in the heart of Chianti, near the village of Panzano, between Florence and Siena (both 40km away). This is one of the most sought-after locations in Tuscany, just perfect for enjoying art and architecture, ancient hill towns such as Greve and San Gimignano, wine tours and delicious local cuisine.

The property incorporates a 13th century control tower for its commanding position overlooking the Chianti hills. Guest can enjoy uninterrupted views on the typical Tuscan countryside both from the garden and from inside the house. Past guests have particularly appreciated spending their time on the terrace of the house, enjoying the stunning views of the rolling hills of Tuscany.

The interiors are welcoming 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, while the exterior is furnished thinking about the importance of the outside relaxing and eating areas. The swimming pool is fenced, making Acquerello ideal for families travelling with young children.

The village of Panzano is just 3 km away where guests will be able to find many excellent restaurants, bars, traditional shops, etc. For meat lovers, in Panzano there is one of the most renowned butcher in Tuscany -Dario Cecchini - where to buy meat but also enjoy a great meal in one of its three restaurants (vegetarian options are offered too).
Furthermore, from the village of Panzano it is easy to take day trips to Florence as there is a direct bus to the city; perfect 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.

Please note that the photos of the villa were taken during fall, the garden is full of blooming shrubs and roses during summer.

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.
