Lovely villa in the Chianti Classico

Villa Vigna is a typical Tuscan stone farmhouse set in the most coveted part of Tuscany: within the golden triangle between Florence, San Gimignano and Siena. Part of a an organic farm spanning 300 hectares, the farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woodland.

Located a few yards from a country road near the medieval hill town of Barberino Val d'Elsa in classic Chianti the property affords glorious, uninterrupted views overlooking neigbouring medieval hamlets and villages, including the towers of San Gimignano in the distance.

The villa offers air-conditioned bedrooms, a large private pool, extensive lawns and a cobbled courtyard overlooking the magical countryside of rolling hills.

The country retreat of an aristocratic Italian family for many generations, Villa Vigna carries the patina of a house that has been tendered with years of loving care and attention. It is furnished with family antiques and retains its original terracotta flooring, vaulted and beamed ceilings.

Comfortable sofas and shelves filled with books set the tone for the three sitting areas which provide plenty of quiet reading corners as well as space for the whole party to gather.

There is a choice of dining areas too: a formal indoor dining room with a old terracotta floor is one of these. Outside there is a vine-covered pergola with a large dining table ideal for long lunches and warm evenings; this space is attached to the guest house - known as Lemon House - where the main kitchen is located. With a table seating 20, it faces the courtyard furnished with a modern shaded seating area and then leads down to the swimming pool terrace.

A second guest house - a large independent suite over two floors, with private kitchenette - can be accessed either from the main villa or through an independent entrance. An added bonus within the garden is the play area for children complete with swings and a climbing frame.

Set on a hill just a half-mile outside the medieval town of Barberino val d’Elsa, Villa Vigna offers a great location from where to visit some of the most important Chianti towns or villages, and the famous San Gimignano is 25 minutes away. Florence and Siena are 40 minutes by car or one hour by bus.
