A homely and cosy villa hidden away from civilisation. Its extraordinary views of the surrounding countryside, and comfortable vintage interior design, make Porciglia Alta a haven for anyone searching for peace and quiet. The town of Greve in Chianti is conveniently just 3km away, but still tucked out of sight, so there’s nothing to interrupt the tranquillity.
The private pool is perfectly positioned for soaking up the sun, as well as the panoramic Tuscan view lined with olive groves and vineyards. It measures 15 by 5 metres with a varying depth from 1.2 metres up to 3 metres, and sunloungers are provided for relaxing beside the clear water.
Just outside the main entrance is a sheltered terrace, with a long wooden table and a set of benches and chairs. A convenient set of French windows lead to the kitchen, making al fresco dining remarkably easy. A second terrace at the rear of the house is unsheltered, and more suited for taking advantage of the Italian sunshine and landscapes.
We enter the villa into a stately hallway, decorated with antique wooden furniture. Terracotta floors, wooden ceiling beams and an elegant wooden staircase combine into an entrance hall that’s both grand and welcoming.
Walking past the staircase you’ll find the door to a spacious kitchen with high ceilings and lots of places for food preparation and storage. A breakfast bar runs the length of the kitchen area, and appliances include a double oven, a gas hob and a large American style fridge freezer.
To the left of the entrance hall and down a few short steps is a shady dining room. This room is furnished with a circular table and ornately framed Tuscan-style paintings. Among the tasteful antique furniture, a wooden dresser holds drinking glasses and crockery. This room also has access to the paved second terrace with glass-topped table and painted metal chairs.
An archway leads into a sitting room with a fireplace. This fireplace is open and available for use, accompanied by two comfortable sofas and a coffee table. A perfect place to read, relax and enjoy the silence.
Straight ahead from here is a library and study area. A window at the rear lets light into the room, and also features a window-seat. With a large desk, a TV, a piano, a sofa and of course, rows upon rows of books, the library serves as a snug and tranquil hideout.
The largest living room is five stone steps down from the first living room. It’s furnished generously with armchairs, sofas, a music system, paintings and reading lights. This spacious but cosy space is brightly lit by a series of windows opening out onto the lush garden, under which are radiators for keeping the room warm in the colder months. A pair of French windows lead out into a small courtyard with views of the pool and grounds.
At the top of the wooden staircase we find the master bedroom, with extensive closet space, a dressing table and a triptych mirror. The four-poster double bed is situated through an archway down three short steps. This area also features a decorative fireplace and window shutters to keep the room dark for those sleep-in-late mornings. An en-suite bathroom boasts an impressive Jacuzzi tub and twin sinks, with a wood-framed window overlooking the garden.
The villa also contains three other bedrooms, all of which contain a wardrobe, a chair and nearby access to a bathroom. Each of them contain a double bed which can be converted into a pair of twin beds on request. The first of these features a wrought-iron bed frame and two bedside lamps.
The second of the three double rooms is a brightly lit, with a pair of plush chairs beside a glass coffee table. The cushioned window-seat provides a great place to admire the gardens from above, and the sloping ceiling and exposed beams give the room an authentic rustic atmosphere.
The third twin bedroom has a small wooden dressing table and wooden headboards for the twin beds. A window looks out onto the garden and is augmented with a pair of tied-back curtains. A further single bedroom is across the hall.
4 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom.
3 double bedrooms can be converted into twins if requested when booking.

Electric fan in every bedroom.
Extra maid service available at additional cost.

Small and medium size pets are allowed. The property is fenced but not pet secure.

We do not recommend for toddlers due to small open pond on site. 

Pool Info

The private pool measures 15 by 5 metres with a varying depth of 1.2 to 3 metres. It’s cleaned by a chlorine system which is well maintained by the property owner, and is available to use from May to September.
Separated from the main house by a row of trees and bushes, and with a short wall to divide it from the edge of the grounds, this pool is ideally placed for both privacy and admiring the view.
