Villa in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa
Sole del Chianti
Soak in the Tuscan sun at villa Sole del Chianti. This ten-bedroom farmhouse near Florence dates from the turn of the century but has been recently renovated, with accommodations in both a main house and a separate cottage. Today, it offers both country charm and modern luxuries like a gym and spa facilities. The villa’s hilltop location affords beautiful panoramic views of vineyards and hills and easy access to the region’s cities and beaches. If you’ve come to Italy to relax, you’ll appreciate the villa’s secluded grounds, filled with olive groves, cypress and aromatic herbs. Relax on the sunbeds and hammocks by the pool and Jacuzzi, taking in the view, or work up a sweat in the fitness room. There are two fully equipped kitchens, an al fresco dining area and state-of-the-art perks like a television room and Wi-Fi. The home’s showpiece, however, is a spa with hot tub, sauna, massage bed, showers, gym and change room, where treatments can be arranged. Recent renovations have preserved Sole del Chianti’s beamed ceilings, cotto floors and brick arches, and added modern furnishings like plush sofas, rustic-style tables, patterned rugs and brocade and gingham fabrics. Living and dining areas are open to each other, creating a welcoming atmosphere, and multiple seating areas and a television room offer plenty of nooks for relaxing or playing. Two fully equipped kitchens have modern appliances ready to feed a crowd. Each of the property’s ten bedrooms has air conditioning available. In the main house, there are seven bedrooms with double beds; seven have en-suite bathrooms. There is also one bedroom with two twin beds, which have en-suite bathrooms, and a bedroom in a tower once used to house the villa’s doves with views from three sides, a double bed and private bathroom. In the cottage, there are two bedrooms that share a bathroom: one with a double bed and one with two twin beds that can be combined to form a queen. Sole del Chianti is southwest of Florence, between the city and the coast. The town of Tavarnelle and its grocery store are a 3-minute drive away, a tennis court in Sambuca val di Pesa is 10 minutes away, a train station and hospital in Poggibonsi are 30 minutes away and Florence’s Golf Ugolino is a 40-minute drive. If you’d like to do some sightseeing, the beach is an hour’s drive, Florence and San Gimignano are 19 miles away, Siena is 25 miles away and Pisa is 50 miles away. Copyright © Luxury Retreats.

All about Metropolitan City of Florence

Planning a florence vacation? We’re here to help!

Eat, drink, be merry

Of course, when in Italy, it would be a shame not to try a slice of pizza. La Sud Pizzeria is close to Mercato Centrale, a 19th-century indoor fresh produce market, and makes a great place to have a slice of margherita after a quick tour of the wares the busy marketplace has to offer. Another market specializing in the fresh produce of the region is San Lorenzo. It’s open every Sunday through Tuesday and has stalled, both indoors and outdoors, selling a variety of cured meats, fresh cheeses, and olive oils. While you are there check out La Menagere, a restaurant, tapas bar, and flower shop rolled into one. Live bands will serenade you most nights of the week at this place.

For something a little more formal, make a reservation at Bottega del Buon Caffe. This Michelin-starred restaurant is famous for its ‘farm to plate’ ethos and grows many of its vegetables and herbs in its kitchen garden. The elegant surroundings and extensive wine list are a pleasure too. Finally, you can’t leave Florence without trying a scoop of gelato. Make a beeline for Carabe, which many believe to offer the best flavors in the city; their cannolis are also legendary.  

Look around you

There is an abundance of galleries and historical buildings in Florence, including the iconic Uffizi gallery. During the summer months, it pays to plan ahead and book tickets to the main museums in advance, as the queues can get very long. Speak to your Luxury Retreats concierge about doing this, especially for guided museum tours, or consider buying a Firenze card, which allows you access to all of the museums for three days, with queue-jumper privileges.

If you’re energetic, take the hundreds of steps up to the top of the Duomo cathedral’s cupola for awe-inspiring views over the city.

Fashion is an important part of Italy’s past and present history. A quick tour of the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, showcasing shoes designed for his A-list fans, or the Museo Gucci, displaying items from its archive, will give you a glimpse into the impact this city has had on the multi-billion dollar fashion industry.
