Property description

Perched on a hilltop above fields of vineyards and forests of regal cypress trees stands an ancient farmhouse in Tuscan countryside dating to 1200 and built in the ochre stone so indicative of the Tuscan style. Here, in the very heart of the Chianti, the stress of everyday life recedes into mere memory, replaced by the gentle rush of olive branches swaying in the breeze and the heady perfume of wild flowers. Centrally located near the cities of Florence and Siena, Il Casale di Villore and its six newly renovated apartments invite you to live the Tuscan dream in this genteel country setting. Villore is as lovely outside as it is inside. Relaxing at poolside, guests can sip a cool drink while taking in the breathtaking view of the valley and the distant outline of charming medieval villages on the horizon.

Granaio: Siena Province Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 83171ha

Located in what was once Villore’s granary, apartment Granaio’s most outstanding feature is its beautifully furnished living room with fireplace, a large dining area, perfect for long evenings of entertaining with friends or family, and a dependence with a double bed. A kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and a children’s bedroom complete the accommodations.
