Castle in the heart of the Chianti district, near Florence. The castle is divided into apartments and includes a farmhouse with 4 to 12 sleeping accommodations. The complex accommodates up to 53 people. Swimming pool, park, breathtaking panorama.
The castle boasts ancient origins: the first settlement dates back to Roman times, when a centurion called Pantius was given the estate after having served Rome in Giulius Caesar legions.
In the Middle Ages the domain became a fee of the Boundelmonti family. The Buondelmontis transformed the ancient Roman house into one of their numerous castles and built the most ancient part of the actual structure.
In the following centuries, the history of the castle intertwined with that of the Florentine Republic, of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and of the Kingdom of Italy.
In the 19th century the castle was renovated and transformed into a hunting house. King Victor Emmanuel II lived in the castle when Florence became the capital of Italy. The surrounding land was rich in game and vineyards that were said to produce a wine similar to Bordeaux.

Both Stefano and Sergio were wonderfull hosts making our stay ever better thanks to their frindliness and amazing cooking!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour. Le restaurant était excellent. On regrette juste dans le gîte un détail : quelques moustiquaires défaillantes.
La villa estaba en perfectas condiciones y hemos estado magníficamente instalados. Los dueños de la villa han sido muy hospitalarios y los días que tenían cena, la comida ha sido espectacular. Es un sitio para recomendar a los amigos sin ninguna duda.
Wir verbrachten einen super tollen Urlaub!!
Hote très gentil, lieu magique mais difficile d'accès
Un lloc idíl·lic per la situació en que està ubicada.
Stefano and Sergio were excellent hosts, the villa is just incredible (it seems to live in 1600 with modern comforts). Our stay was very nice and I would like to come back also during summer. The only point which I see could be improved is the wifi connection, which is available only close to the salon windows.
