Property description

Muricciaglia is a property of seventy hectares (one hundred and fifty acres) off the beaten path yet only five minutes drive from the medieval village of Castellina in Chianti and a few kilometers from Radda in Chianti. There are three houses, the main house where my husband Franco and I live, Ovile, the old sheep shed and Fienile. Il Fienile, the ancient stone built hay barn, is now a charming self contained villa surrounded by private terraces and large meadows: the view of fields and woods, as far as the eye can see, is lovely. The upper floor includes a master bedroom (a large glass door opens our onto an outdoor terrace) with bathroom en suite, another double bedroom, a second bathroom and a mezzanine. On the lower floor there is the living room with an open fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen that opens onto the wisteria covered pergola. Il Fienile has its own laundry room, central heating, telephone and satellite TV and WIFI.

The elegantly designed swimming pool is not far. Guests will find serenity and peace in our hideaway in the heart of Chianti Classico hills surrounded by olive orchards. Franco tends them and at every fall at harvest time the new green gold blesses our table.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We have been an expatriate family for many years. Franco working with EXXON Chemicals and travelling all the time, Mimma busy teaching Italian at Bruxelles Free University and growing the family. When it was time thinking of retirement, Tuscany was chosen after a long search, thanks to a sum of 'plus' factors as weather, landscape and culture. We bought a group of ancient rural dwellings and started to restore them shaping the wild land around. The children are gone now, they have their own families and live far away. Franco is busy with the olive groves, the vineyard and the woods. We produce extra virgin olive oil, Chianti Classico grapes and firewood. I take care of our guests who are coming back year after year to enjoy the Chianti atmosphere. Often they participate to the culinary program I started back in 1996, 'Tutti a Tavola', after the age-old call to dinner used by mothers throughout Italy. From the beginning our aim has been to share our 'family cooking' but also to open our home to friends coming from distant places.
