Description from manager

1 living room with dining area, 1 living room with grand piano, 1 kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 1 extra guest toilet:

Ground floor:

The villa has a spacious ground floor where you will find a living room with sofas for 6 as well as a dining area with table for 12. The living area and the dining area area have two large French doors which open to the beautiful panoramic garden areas around the villa. The kitchen has access to the dining room and the covered terrace. The kitchen is well equipped: There is a large fridge with freezer, a dishwasher, a five burner stove, an oven, range hood, a hatch to the dining room, a generous stock of pots and pans, a large breakfast table for 8 people and a lot of space in a comfortable and light-flooded room. On the ground floor are also two double bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom with a shower. There is also a guest toilet.

Upper floor:

Upstairs are three spacious double bedrooms and one with two single beds (this twin is a walk-through room to one of the two double bedrooms). All bedrooms on the first floor have wooden floors and high beamed ceilings. One of the four bathrooms on this floor has a hydromassage bath, the others have a shower. A second living room with large panoramic French doors, located on this floor, offers a beautiful landscape view to the west. This room is equipped with a grand piano in very good condition, and there is a good home cinema system with TV and DVD player as well as a stereo with CD player.

Bathrooms

The two ground floor bedrooms each have en suite bathrooms (with WC, sink, bidet, shower). Two of the four bedrooms of the upper floor have en suite bathrooms (with WC, sink, shower); the other two bedrooms have the bathrooms on the corridor (one with WC, two sinks, bidet and shower; the other with WC, one sink, bidet and a hydro massage tub). There is a half bath (with WC and sink) on the ground floor, easily reached from the pool and garden.

Notes on accommodation

The villa is suitable for family groups with children because the large fenced grounds provide space to roam safely, and the ground floor rooms have good indoor/outdoor flow. The downstairs bedrooms can serve as self-contained accommodation for a nanny, or a peaceful retreat for grandparents. The terracotta floors downstairs, the parquet floors upstairs, the antique furniture, the window shutters and the ceiling beams all have the mellow patina of age. The upstairs living room has a beautiful grand piano, which guests are welcome to use.

Accessibility

While not specially constructed for wheelchair access, the ground floor is well suited to guests with limited mobility because there is level access to the house from the parking area and the ground floor bedrooms and living areas have no steps.

Outdoors

The private swimming pool has a large surrounding decked area with a generous supply of sun loungers and an outdoor shower. The pool measures 9.5 m x 4.5 m / 1.30 - 1.40 m deep. There are no neighbouring properties that overlook the pool. For outdoor dining, there is a wide choice of tables and chairs: on the shaded terrace, on the front lawn, and beside the wood-burning oven and barbecue. The large property is completely fenced.

Overlooking the Greve valley

Podere Margherita is a country house with private pool in one of the most coveted regions of Tuscany: halfway between Florence and Siena, in the very heart of Chianti Classico. It is located on a hill (430 m above sea level) and offers a fabulous view of the valley of Greve in Chianti. The eye wanders far over the landscape spotted with vineyards, olive groves and forests.

Podere Margherita is sited on an ancient pilgrim path and its history dates back to Roman times. From here religious pilgrims travelled while making their way up to this sanctuary, first nominated in the early 1000's, before proceeding on to Rome.

Until recently used as a farmhouse it is now a lovely vacation rental for groups from up to 12 people. The spacious villa has six large bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The rooms are spacious, and all have beautiful views of the valley or the garden.

Memorable meals take place in the large formal dining room, on the shaded terrace overlooking the pool and the valley, or around the wood-burning pizza and bread oven with barbecue grill. The panoramic pool looks towards west and also has stupendous views. The grounds are fenced and gated for security with ample parking, and the road access is excellent.

A restaurant is just 500 m away. A wide selection of cafes, restaurants and shops can be found in the delightful medieval town of Greve in Chianti (6 km). Also Radda in Chianti is only a short drive through the awesome winding roads of Chianti.
