Villa Da Vinci is an ancient manor villa dating back to the 11th century, originally a lookout tower in the disputed territories between Florence and Siena, which in the course of the centuries has been transformed. Attentive restoration has maintained and protected its original architectural elements. It has belong to some of the most important historical Florentine families. Very pleasantly furnished with period pieces. The villa and the adjacent hayloft are surrounded by a spacious, well-kept and equipped lawn, where the swimming pool is located.
Villa Da Vinci is in an ideal spot for those who want to truly appreciate the Tuscan landscape that lies beyond and as far as the eye can see. Yet it is also within easy reach of the art cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa. There are also endless things to see and do nearby.
Villa Da Vinci is only a few kilometres from the historic market town of Greve which is right in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine zone and is home to of course, the largest wine fair in Chianti held every September. Wine tours and tasting experiences sweep as far as the eye can see. The landscapes surrounding Greve offer some quite literally breathtaking hikes through the Monte San Michele Nature Park, but also pleasant strolls for those a little less adventurous! And for those who appreciate the historic artefacts this region has to offer, the church of Santa Croce houses some of the most magnificent paintings from the school of the Fra Angelico. Greve also houses the San Francesco Museum of Sacred Art. Originally built in the 16th Century and completed later in 1866, it has a collection of valuable ecclesiastical artefacts and artwork.
The quaint village of Lamole is just 7 kilometres up the hill with a bar, restaurant and grocery store for all your essentials. Lamole is known for its weekly concerts of classical music from July to September, definitely worth a visit.
Panzano is also nearby, a beautiful hilltop town with a popular Sunday market. The castle with its courtyard and grounds open to the public stands exactly halfway between Florence and Siena - the Greve valley and the Pesa valley.
The warm and welcoming house keeper lives in a neighbouring (but secluded) cottage and is there to help to make your relaxing and enjoyable experience all the more special.
