Greve in Chianti (Florence)


Villa Fortezza
Villa Fortezza


The elegant villa stands in panoramic position on a hill in the Chianti Classico area, halfway from Florence and Siena, near Greve in Chianti.

Situated at the junction of the roads connecting Florence to Valdarno, Val di Greve and Siena, in the Middle Ages Greve in Chianti hosted an important market, which was held in the triangular square with a statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano at the centre. The famous explorer was born in the homonymous castle situated in the valley of the river Greve.

The area around Greve in Chianti is scattered with interesting castles - including those of Uzzano, Montefioralle and Mugnana - and medieval churches.


The villa stands in the place where in the past stood an 11th-century fortress. Like most of the countryside between Florence and Siena, in the Middle Ages the area was racked by the war involving the two important Tuscan towns and the complex was destroyed in the first half of the 16th century.

The elegant villa features wide rooms with lacunar ceilings and exposed beams, and is surrounded by a beautiful panoramic terrace that affords a stunning view of the valley below.
The private swimming pool (10x5; depth: 1.50-3 m) and an external shower are in the garden situated on a lower level.
The porch is furnished for having meals in the open air and the barbecue equipment is at guests' disposal.

Florence, Siena, Arezzo, the whole Chianti district, Pisa, Colle Val d'Elsa, Monteriggioni and many other Tuscan tourist destinations are easily reached by car for pleasant one-day jaunts.


The three-storey building can accommodate 8 guests in 1 twin bedroom and 3 double bedrooms, and has 5 bathrooms.

The ground floor composes of entry hall, kitchen, dining room, billiard room with dining area, laundry room and a bathroom with shower.
On the first floor are a living room with fireplace, a study/TV room, a twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub and a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub.
