The Chianti

If the Tuscan lifestyle is the greatest lure, then Chianti is perfection. This famous wine-growing region is quintessential Tuscany, with villa-living the ideal way of appreciating the countryside. In the Chianti, the locals seem to have found the right balance between country and city living. The Chianti countryside is a patchwork of vineyards, olive groves and cypresses, or cornfields edged with sunflowers. Stretching from Florence to Siena, this soothing scenery, dotted with hill-towns, villas and castles, inspired the Renaissance masters. The art magnets of Florence and Siena are nearby yet feel far away. For those not fascinated by frescoed churches, the delights of Florence and Siena can often fade. The desire to escape the city’s cauldron-like atmosphere in summer can also prove overwhelming. If so, the Chianti is for you, with all its countrified temptations. Take it slowly, from meandering between wine estates to homely inns, castle-visiting and cycle trails.
