Villa La Poiana is a luxurious country home located just a few minutes by car from the borgo of Castellina in Chianti, set in the hilly countryside between Siena and Florence in the heart of Chianti Classico, the splendid area renowned throughout the world for its enchanting panoramic views and for the excellence of its wine. Standing on a 522 m high hilltop, in a wonderful position overlooking the countryside, dotted with olive trees and vineyards and covered by dense wooded vegetation, it is ideal for walking and for practising sports in full contact with nature. Inside the imposing exposed-stone structure, Villa La Poiana is characterised by its elegant rooms, with great attention to detail paid to the finishing touches with fine furnishings and accessories in classic style. The large, air-conditioned bedrooms, the beautiful living room with sofas and big fireplace facing out over the valley and the garden with pool - the perfect setting for a thoroughly relaxing holiday. Not fare from the property, along the scenic Chiantigiana road, a true panoramic bridge linking Siena (about 20 km away) to Florence (about 50 km away), you can make daily excursions to well-known places like Radda, Gaiole, Greve and Panzano - rich in artistic treasures, churches and Renaissance villas perched on panoramic hills - or go further afield to the fascinating little towns of San Gimignano, Volterra or Montalcino. NB The villa is located within an agritourism estate with some others houses for rent but is completely independant and separated by hedges. About 100 m away is the caretakers' house - they are very discreet and always on hand for any needs or requests of the guests.
