Porciglia Alta, Greve in Chianti - Florence

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Looking for a classic Tuscan villa to provide a venue for that special family celebration? Porciglia Alta is just the kind of place where you can create fond memories, for this is a wonderful, often stately stone-built property, with its own loggia and courtyard. You are sure to love its uncontrived style: vintage interior design, antique wooden furniture, sloping ceilings, exposed beams - all this combines to create an authentic and uplifting elegant rustic atmosphere. Tucked away in the countryside, yet just a five-minute drive from Greve, one of the classic Chianti market towns, this is the perfect location for a holiday in Tuscany.

There is a homely feel to this villa and you will be charmed by several delightfully intimate features, including the cushioned window seats and snug library.There's the occasional show-stopper, too, such as the courtyard, and the master bedroom, with its four-poster, open fireplace, and, now here's a touch of luxury, a Jacuzzi. Outside, the loggia, with its cloister-like arches and columns, would not be out of place attached to a medieval church. What a beautiful setting for al fresco dining, or you could choose the sun-drenched terrace at the rear of the property. If you're feeling energetic, the private pool is a good size for length swimming, though you will find it hard to resist the temptation to simply relax here and take in the graceful blur of olive groves and vineyards that frames the view.

Our Thoughts
Porciglia Alta is the quintessential Tuscan villa, beautifully maintained, from the ceramic tiles and antique furniture to the exposed wooden beams and brickwork. Did we mention the ornate Tuscan paintings, internal archways and pastel-coloured wooden window shutters? We also think you will love the snug areas, such as the study with its hide-away window seat, as well as the shaded garden with its views of olive groves and vineyards. Venturing beyond the property, you'll find a clutch of intriguing villages and towns within a short driving distance.

Notes
Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, one en-suite. A flight of short steps connects the kitchen to the dining room; another flight leads from the sitting room to the living room. while a short flight of additional steps on the first floor leads to the master bedroom. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have separate access to a shared bathroom. The property is fenced but not pet secure. The pond in the garden is fenced, but guests must take care if there are young children present.
Parking - 2 spaces, one of which is sheltered.

Pool
The pool is separated from the main house by a row of trees and bushes; a short wall that divides it from the edge of the surrounding vineyards. It is surrounded by stone paving, with sun loungers set on the adjacent lawn. The pool is entered by internal steps with a handrail. Pool size: 15m x 5m, 1.2m-3m deep. Open May to September, weather permitting.

Porciglia Alta ist eine schöne und typische toskanische Villa mit wunderschönem gepflegtem Garten, großem Pool und toller Aussicht über den Chianti. Wir hatten einige kühlere Frühlingstage, aber mit der Heizung des Hauses fühlt man sich auch dann sehr wohl. Das Wohnzimmer mit den großen Fenstern vermittelt das Gefühl draußen zu sitzen.
Die Zimmer sind geräumig und die Betten sehr bequem. Terrakotta-Fußböden, Klassische Möbel, Ölgemälde und viele Accessoires unterstreichen das Ambiente dieses über Generationen gewachsenen Hauses. Die Technik ist eher klassisch. Der hauseigene Wein schmeckt hervorragend.
Danke an Francesco und seinen Hausmeister, die bei Bedarf Tipps geben und sehr freundlich unterstützen.
Wir kommen gerne wieder in diese Oase mit bezauberndem Charme.
Local attractions Die Nähe zu Greve bietet viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und schöne Restaurants, regelmäßigen Markt und einen typischen Marktplatz mit Restaurants und Cafes. Für das Frühstück im Haus empfehlen wir unbedingt den Bäcker in der nordwestlichen Ecke des Marktplatzes.
