Greve in Chianti villa to hire Tuscany - Villa Saeculum is a classic 16th century restored Tuscan farmhouse located in the Chianti Classico region of Italy on its own wine estate. The estate itself comprises well kept vineyards, olive groves and is surrounded by woodland ideal for relaxing walks.
The property itself is of a high standard, with a private landscaped garden leading to a travertine marble-paved swimming pool, a sunset facing 'sun terrace' and a large gazebo for shade and relaxation, with spectacular views. The covered loggia is a very relaxing area, somewhere to retire on a warm day and to enjoy the wonderful ambience.
As you stay at Villa Saeculum you will have the chance to visit the estate centre and its cellars to taste and purchase various brands of the estates fine wines and extra-virgin olive oil. The vintages are well respected internationally and are highly recommended. The pretty village of Greve in Chianti is enticingly just a five minute drive away for restaurants, grocers, wine bars and a delicatessen. Day trips may include Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca or San Gimignano, all approximately an hour's drive from your Chianti villa.
This villa is absolutely ideal for a family holiday. The villa itself is very comfortable indeed and in a lovely location surrounded by vineyards, just a short drive from the pretty little town of Greve in the heart of the beautiful Chianti region. Do sample the local wine (we can particularly recommend the wines produced on the estate where La Riserva is situated!) The pool is a very good size, and the loggia really is the most wonderfully relaxing place to sit in.
For the days when you want to go further afield you really are spoilt for choice, with some of Italy's most famous cities an hour or less away.
