A modern Chianti villa
Elisabetta is already waiting for us when we enter the gate. We have seen the photos of the garden, but the Italian flower garden of the villa exceeds all of our expectations. We immediately get handed freshly picked figs and strawberries. “Deliciously sweet, the last ones of the season” Elisabetta smiles. It is September and still warm, so this type of fig (green from the outside and pink on the inside) are still delicious. Together we head towards the pool area. Elisabetta opens the fence to the fenced outdoor pool. From the solarium, the view over the Chianti hills is absolutely stunning.
The Chianti villa of Elisabetta is situated in hills of Greve in Chianti. The perfect place for wine lovers. Near the Tuscan village of Ponte agli Stolli, between Florence and Arezzo. We just love all these vineyards and olive groves around us, the grapes are so beautiful at this time of year! In a few weeks the harvest season will start. We walk along the olive trees to the terraces. On our way over, we find the parents of Elisabetta, working in the vegetable garden. They live in the adjacent villa. Which is convenient, in case you need advice or some local help. At the same time they fully respect the privacy of the guests. We continue the tour along the several terraces and porches and also find a large terrace to dine at all together. The Wi-Fi connection works both outside and inside, we notice as we enter the hallway from the garden. The living area has a light and modern look to it. Also the kitchen, reading corner and bathroom on the ground floor are very well maintained. Upstairs we find 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Elisabetta explains that the house is built out of and with energy-saving materials. This results in airconditioning becoming superfluous. With the indoor temperature remaining constant, in contrast to the varying outside temperature no airconditioning is needed.
