Description:Villa Vigna is a typical Tuscan stone farmhouse set in the most coveted part of Tuscany, halfway between Florence and Siena. Part of a 300 hectare estate the farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woodland. Located a few yards from a country road near the medieval hill town of Barberino Val d'Elsa in classic Chianti the property affords glorious, uninterrupted views over an area of unspoiled Chianti countryside, overlooking neigbouring medieval hamlets and villages, including the tower of Sant`Appiano and San Gimignano in the distance. nThe territory of Barberino val dc2b4Elsa was in the Middle Age part of the Republic of Florence, the village was protected by walls and towers erected in strategic points wich garanted an advanced defence system against the Republic of Siena. This farmhouse still shows thick and broad walls which were the basis of a tower. At the end of Middle Age the tower was enlarged end trasformed in a fortified residence, and the still existing pigeon house assured permanent nourishment to the inhabitants later. The country retreat of an aristocratic Italian family for many generations, Villa Vigna carries the unmistakable sheen of a house that has been tendered with years of loving care and attention. It is furnished with Tuscan family antiques and retains its original terracotta flooring, vaulted and beamed ceilings. Comfortable sofas and shelves filled with books set the tone for the three sitting areas which provide plenty of quiet reading corners as well as space for the whole party to gather. There is a choice of eating areas, to a formal dining room with a beautiful old terracotta floor, a vine-covered pergola for long lunches and warm evenings, and a loggia with a barbeque and fireplace or chillier times. Facing south and across the Tuscan hills, the gardens include extensive lawns, a large swimming pool, several sitting areas and even a play area for children. nAbout the region nVillages nearby: the lovely historic village center of Barberino is in walking distance, about half a mile from the house. Barberino has two bars, a bank, a small grocery shop, an excellent butcher, a restaurant, a wine bar, a hairdresser, a chemistry and a post office. A good supermarket is just outside the village, in the village of Tavarnelle, 3 km north. Here you will find a wider range of shops as well as a market once a week. nSightseeing: the romantic church of Sant'Appiano, Greve's market on Saturdays, the important Basilica de Impruneta, the hilltop town of Colle Val d'Elsa, the fortified village of Monteriggioni and the romanesque abbey S. Galgano. Certaldo is 18 minutes to the west, and the famous San Gimignano 25 minutes to the south-west. Florence is quickly reached along the motorway, 35 minutes, but the slower route through the Chianti Classico region on the Via Chiantigiana, 25 minutes, is one of the loveliest drives in Italy. Florence, Siena and San Gimignano can be reached in approx. 35 minutes. Volterra, Arezzo and Lucca will take about one hour. nWine and olive oil: the estate cultivates the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the house. You can purchase the products of two fattorias (farms) belonging to the owner: Chianti DOCG, Rosso and Bianco IGT, Super Tuscan, Vinsanto, Grappa, Grappa Riserva, olive oil, Laudemio oil in the Barberino fattoria, as well as Sangiovese, Sangiovese Riserva and Biancodi Romagna of the Ravenna fattoria. The family of the owner produces wine since more than 500 years. nRestaurants: many good restaurants in Chianti can make eating out a way of discovering the area. Simple local trattorias which have existed for years as well as more sophisticated restaurants specialised in refined cuisine stand door to door. nCraftmanship: the closeby town of Impruneta is famous for its large terracotta pots which originally were used for the lemon trees and to store olive oil. You might also want to look up the nearby town Montelupo which produced pottery for Florence in the Renaissance. The same patterns are still hand-painted today. The town Colle Val d'Elsa on the way to Siena is famous for its crystal glass production. In Florence itself you will find a multitude of craftsmen working with silver, leather, wood, glass, pottery, paper and metal. You only have to walk around the small streets on the southern bank of the Arno river to discover them. nLocal markets: Poggibonsi on Tuesday, Siena and San Donato on Wednesday, Tavarnelle on Thursday, Colle Val dc2b4Elsa on Friday, Florence weekdays at San Lorenzo. nActivities: the hills around Barberino offer wonderful treks. Good guidebooks and maps have been published recently in English as well as Italian which are on sale at most newsagents in Chianti. Tennis is available at Noce (Tavarnelle) and Poggibonsi. Two 18-hole golf courses are approx. 35 km away. This is a wonderful area for walking and biking.
