Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Situated on a hill and immersed in the landscape of the green hills of Florentine Chianti, Badia a Corte is an old, cosy farmhouse dating back to the Middle Ages. The recent restructuring, undertaken with particular accuracy, has provided the house with all modern conveniences to ensure guests a comfortable stay yet respecting the characteristics of the typical country houses. From the house and from the pool guests can enjoy a panorama stretching as far as the eye can see, over the orderly expanses covered with vineyards and olive groves surrounding the property, to the far-off mountains of the Vallombrosa National Park. Badia a Corte offers the opportunity of a relaxing and salutary holiday in a place rich in fascination and charm where art and nature blend in a perfect union. Moreover, its location, just a few kilometres from the principal art cities of Tuscany, like Siena, Florence, San Gigminano and Volterra, and from the characteristic villages of the Chianti area, makes it suitable for organizing interesting trips in the vicinity as it is well connected to the major road networks. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.

Interior

The house has three floors and stands on sloping ground: this allows access to the outside from both the ground floor and the basement sited at the back of the building. The entrance on the ground floor leads, on the left, to a large sitting room with fireplace which is connected to the TV room equipped with a large satellite television and with direct access to the outside porch. On the right is two twin bedrooms sharing a bathroom with shower. Two flights of stairs lead, respectively, to the basement and to the first floor. In the basement is a dining room connected to a large kitchen with direct access, though a French door, to the outside dining area. Also on this floor is a toilet. On the first floor is the sleeping area, composed of a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) with ensuite bathroom with shower, a double bedroom (with divisible bed) with ensuite bathroom with tub and a further two double bedrooms, both with private bathroom, one with shower and one with shower and an hydro-massage tub directly in the room.

Park

The property is completely fenced-in and covers an area of 8,000 sq m. with areas of lawn alternating with areas paved in stone. The surrounding vegetation is typically Tuscan, with olive trees and vineyards but also colourful and fragrant plants such as bushes of broom and roses. From the entrance gate you go directly into a spacious, stone-paved courtyard leading to the main door of the house and to the hanging garden with swimming pool and solarium. Two porticoes, one adjacent to the courtyard and the other at the back of the house, contain, respectively, a relaxation area with benches and chairs and a ping-pong table. At the back of the house is a large area furnished with tables, chairs and umbrella, the ideal spot for al fresco dining in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. The property has a large outdoor parking area and a garage.

Swimming Pool

The pool is situated in the inner garden, in a panoramic position and framed by a lush vineyard on the side facing south. It is sited on a lower level with respect to the ground floor. It measures 13x7m with a depth varying from 1,10 to 3m. The fenced-in pool has two ladders for access to the water. A few metres from the pool is a changing room with bathroom and two hot-water showers. The purification plant is chlorine; there is lighting both inside the pool and outside in the solarium area. This area is equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs and and two gazebo. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.

The A1 motorway is about 11 km away whilst, directly from Rignano sull’Arno, you can follow the routes traversing the Florentine hills along the wine roads where you can explore castles, monuments and the beautiful, unspoiled natural parks of the area, such as the famous reserve of the Vallombrosa Park with its majestic monastery which can be seen in the distance from the house.
