Profile

This lovely house is close to the village and has a pretty garden with trees, vines and masses of geraniums.The swimming pool is in a beautiful position with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.There is a covered patio just outside the house and another shady pergola for dining or relaxing outdoors.The interiors have been very tastefully restored and although traditional materials were used, modern comforts were not overlooked. The kitchen and bathrooms are particularly well equipped.A tennis court, 200 yards away, is available on request.

Just as in the 12th Century, the village itself still plays an essential role in our wine and oil production. The interiors of its ancient houses, churches, underground passages and deconsecrated churches have been discreetly converted into wine cellars, bottling plants and olive presses up to the ceiling in the latest equipment and all connected by an amazing underground "wineduct."
Thus Volpaia is not just another magnificent tourist attraction, but a thriving hive of activity whose inhabitants are all directly or indirectly involved in the winery.

This property is located in the fortified medieval hamlet of Volpaia, in the Chianti Classico area, in a secluded position ensuring complete privacy. It is just a 300 metre walk to the centre of the hamlet, with two restaurants, one of which managed by the Castello di Volpaia farm, where it is possible to taste the local cuisine. Cooking classes are also arranged, on request, by the English-speaking local office. The house has a pretty garden with trees, vines and pots of geraniums. The swimming pool is in a beautiful position with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There is a covered dining area just outside the house and another shady pergola for sitting and relaxing outdoors. The interiors have been very tastefully restored, using traditional materials, combined with modern comforts, including satellite TV, as well as well equipped bathrooms and kitchen. There is a tennis court, 200 metres away, available on request.
