The space

In the quiet of terraces (4 acres) cultivated to olive trees you will relax in a farmhouse that preserve the rural original characteristics, settled in a location peacefull and isolated.
The tuscan countryside here in Chianti area it's a series of hills alternated to little valleyes, the roads are curvy and steeps: the mains pubblics roads are in asfalt but there is a nets of secondary roads in gravels. One of the charming peculiarity of the Chianti, it are this roads in gravels, maintened unpaved from the Municipalityes to preserve the wildness of the countryside.
From 20 years a go this gravels "Strade Bianche" are an acctraction to many and many sportives peoples that playing at the event "L'EROICA" (1st weekend of October). The L'Eroica it's an uncompetitive bike racing that have in the gravels a circuit open air, and it's always bikebble.

The acces at the Farm house it's manly paved: in my own property whit cement, v/s the pubblic part its' in asfalt and 50 metres of gravel.

At the Montaio hill the Farm-house is a mix of style, a country tuscan house with precius original old pieces of furniture.
It is provide of private parking, a swimming-pool 9x4x1.4 metres, garden, stone barbecue, arbor flowerlly.

The House it's in the middle of the olives, the olives orchard are manage apply the in Organic struggle.
Also other Farmers collegue of my have choise to be organic, the 3/4 of Montaio hills it's organic almost from 15 years a go.
The results it's a oasis detoxicated from the pesticides or insecticides, reach of biodiversy and nature: it's no rare in summer seeing the fireflyes, hares, badgers, wildboards or somes rohe buck deers running through the olives fields.

At night there are not a lot of lights that lighting the darkness in the garden and around the house, this is to preserve the environement from to much light pollution, a disruptive effect on natural cycles and inhibits the observation of stars and planets.

Mirko is the perfect host! Great communication, stunning property, highly recommend. He greeted us with wine. The farmhouse itself if about 2kms out of the village so a car is essential. It is the perfect Chianti hideaway.

This is a very spacious house with a very welcoming host. Kitchen downstairs is very well laid out with all the pots and pans etc you will need. The one area that could be even better would be putting in fly screens in the bedroom windows - there are quite a few mosquitoes at night so opening a window without the screens is not possible. Would recommend this place!

A fantastic house, super location and peaceful. We had a super week here, enjoying the house, location and Mirko's gift of wine and olive oil. We enjoyed our wine tasting session at his vineyard and had some superb meals both in Cavraglia and Motevarchi. We would all strongly recommend this accomodation and the location.

If you are looking for a rustic & comfortable family escape hidden in the hills of Chianti, then this is the perfect Villa. Out notes: - Villa is tucked in the hills of Chianti and is in an incredibly scenic & quiet location - It is about 5 mins from the main road through wine country, and midway between Sienna & Florence, meaning it is a great location to explore Chianti - There are two kitchens and several different living spaces inside meaning its great for a family to relax and have their own spaces to read or for larger families to have their own space/kitchens etc. - There are two large tables to eat outside which can easily sit 10 - one out in the sun, one covered in shade by wooden beam covered with vines. We ate at both most days as you have a wonderful view from each. - The pool is a wonderful plus - my family didn't expect to use it much but in the end it was a popular place for kids & for the adults to sit & read their books. - The beds are comfortable - this is rare in my experience for places in Chianti and something that is important to mention. - There is a grocery store at the bottom of the hill which is convenient for wine, cheese, bread, meat, etc. We walked up & down once and while a great workout would recommend driving. - There i s a stunning restaurant in an old monastery which you can see from the house - its called Badia di Coltibuono, it's pricey but the food and view were incredible (both by New York & London standards) - Just an fyi It is secluded which means the roads are small and require careful driving, not all the turns are possible to do in one. Just an fyi

Incredible location. South facing hill with all day sun looking over vineyards and olive groves. Great location for exploring Chianti and beyond. Can't wait to come back!
