Overview

About the property

Sleeps 18. 9 Bedrooms. 7.5 Baths.

Villa Benedetta is a beautiful historic residence that has been for many years the beating heart of the Folonari family, a renowned name in the Italian wine panorama. Dating back to the early 1800, the villa is located at the center of the family’s agricultural holding that is currently producing excellent internationally known wines.

After a long and thorough renovation of the villa in 2014, the owners have decided to convert it into a vacation home considering its overall wonderful characteristics, elegance and charm. The spectacular typical Tuscan surroundings are perfect for excursions either on foot, on a bike or for horseback riding.

The park of the villa is immaculately kept and features furnished shade areas dedicated to just relaxing while enjoying the view on the stunning Tuscan landscape or al fresco dining (there is a new barbecue and a covered gazebo that sits up to 18 people).

The private swimming pool (size 40 x 16 feet) comes with a changing area, full bathroom with shower and a dedicated wi-fi internet connection.

Location: the villa is located in Greve in Chianti, which is considered the “entrance gate” into the Chianti region. The beautiful main square of Greve, Piazza Matteotti, is the focal point of the town and can be easily reached from the villa on foot (about 10 minutes walk), by bike, or by car (3-4 minutes drive).

At the Piazza Matteotti there is several excellent restaurants such as the Osteria Mangiando Mangiando, the Bottega del Moro or the Osteria del Chianti Classico as well as many other typical grocery stores, Artisan shops and the famous Antica Macelleria Falorni (a Tuscan butcher that has been in the same spot since 1729). Nearby the square there is also a furnished supermarket.

Walking distance from the villa there is a bus stop where it is possible to take several buses to Florence or other nearby locations such as San Gimignano or Siena.

Villa Benedetta is stunning and beautifully situated in the Tuscan countryside.

  • 5 of 5

The rooms and grounds were impeccable and the service was friendly and helpful. We had a group of 17 adults stay there for a week and we all loved it!

Perfect location for day trips to Florence, San Gimignano, Siena and many smaller towns in Chianti. Excellent restaurants within an easy drive.

We also had the villa stocked with some of the Folonari wines before we arrived.

Bella!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10-13, number depending on the day of the week, spent a glorious week at Villa Benedetta. The Villa is vast; all the rooms are quite large and beautifully furnished; and the beds were so comfortable. The housekeeper, who lives on the premises but in a separate wing, was always available to help us with any issue that arose. The grounds are well maintained and landscaped with plenty of seating by the pool and the back terrace. This section of Chianti is truly magnificent, and we did quite a bit of walking each day on the country roads and paths, which are hilly. The walk to Montefioralle, a photogenic medieval village, is 13 minutes -- although part of the path is rocky and steep. That was not an issue for us. The walk to Greve, which is filled with shops and restaurants, is perhaps 15, but again, the return walk is up a steep hill. And the walk to Villa Bordoni, a lovely inn with incredible food, is 25 minutes. Our son ran to Badia a Passignano and back -- 12-13 kilometers round trip -- through a stunningly beautiful landscape was stunning. The Villa supplied a crib and high chair for our one-year old granddaughter. On Antonella's recommendation, we hired Laura Franchetti to cook for us our first night. The food was delicious, and we were all relieved that we did not have to head out that night after a long day of travel from a number of US cities. We also had a pizza class on our last night, which was both fun and tasty. I have never had a better pizza crust. Our only regret is that because we were returning to the States the next morning, we had to leave behind some pizza and bread. In short, we would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Antonella!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 40th birthday at Villa Benedetta with my family and friends and we had an absolutely spectacular experience. The villa is stunning and comfortable, and was perfect for our group. Working with Antonello beforehand was excellent, all his recommendations were great and planning went very smoothly. Iolanta was wonderful and took very good care of us. We had one small problem when we were there and they quickly and efficiently sorted it out for us. I will definitely return to Villa Benedetta!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This villa surpassed all my expectations and was the height of our 2 week trip to Europe. Our group of 14 all loved staying at the Villa. It is a short drive to Greve, a great little town with shopping and restaurants. We were fortunate that our trip started during the Greve Wine festival and we all enjoyed that very much. The villa is huge and the bedrooms are enormous, all are master size except for 2 bedrooms (the smaller bedrooms also had plenty of room and had ensuite bathrooms). The villa and grounds are beautiful; even better than the photos. Our group of 14 all loved staying at the Villa. A few of us love to cook and we stayed in and cooked a few nights; the kitchen was well equipped; the dining room sat all of us very comfortably. Yolonda, the on-site caretaker was sweet and always willing to help.

If you are looking to stay in Chianti/Tuscany area, this is the place to stay; I hope to return in the near future
