Travelling through the Villas in Chianti

There is a special place in Italy that attracts tourists and visitors from all over the world; a place that in some respects has also become synonymous with Italy and its mild climate, as well as the wonderful landscapes that frame the villages in the hinterlands. The place in question, for those who have not yet understood, is Chianti, a territory linked to the wine that is produced in its vineyards, which bears the same name and protected designation of origin. Geographically, the Chianti hills are a small mountain range that winds its way between the provinces of Florence, Arezzo, and Siena.

There are many small towns that were made famous throughout the peninsula by the quality of the wines produced there. Some small villages that are worth visiting are Poggibonsi, Castellina in Chianti, and San Gimignano. These are enchanted places where time seems to stand still; ideal territories in which to plan a trip a weekend out of town or for a few days to discover the wonders of Chianti.

The best way to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the Chianti area is by renting a villa that has facilities such as a swimming pool and acres of land that you can look out on in the morning, to start the day in the best way ever. In fact the Chianti area, in this sense, is teeming with villas and estates that are perfect for your well-deserved holidays. They’ll let you get back in touch with nature and at the same time you’ll have enough space to invite friends over. There’s no need to worry about the noise at night since you’ll fall asleep gently while the cicadas chirp outside, letting you forget about the hustle and bustle of the trams and cars in the city center.

There are more recently built villas and historical estates that belonged to noble families of the past or to great artists such as Michelangelo Buonarroti. Villa Nittardi, for example, one of the many beautiful villas scattered throughout the Tuscan territory, dates back to around 1500 and seems to have been the home of the famous sculptor, who chose it as his personal refuge when he was still alive. Moreover, many of these villas are small vineyards that produce excellent wine, in the classic Chianti way. If you don’t want to stay overnight, it is always possible (and highly recommended) to pay a visit to taste and buy some good bottles to bring back home with you.



Among the towns managed by Halldis, there is the small municipality of Montaione, which is part of the nearby Florentine Valdelsa and borders the famous city of Pisa. It is a small town that has been included in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy; a magical, almost enchanted place, that is a great starting point before continuing with the tour of the Tuscan hinterland. In the town, you will find a series of beautiful villas surrounded by greenery, all furnished and ready to be lived in and used. A landscape unfolds around you that will really leave you speechless.

Many of these villas, speaking of conveniences and facilities, have a private swimming pool and whirlpool and have a capacity that can easily accommodate multiple families, companies, or a group of friends. From the gardens equipped for barbecue dinners, to outdoor dining areas where you can taste excellent local products, to enjoying the tranquility that assails the Tuscan countryside during sunset, there is enough to leave every customer satisfied and relaxed, even the most demanding ones.



With regard to the most beautiful villages in Italy, you cannot visit the Chianti area without stopping in some of the key places, which have made this particular geographical area famous all over the world. Starting from the aforementioned Greve in Chianti, with its beautiful arcades that characterize the center of the medieval citadel. All around, there are farms and wineries, which can be a pleasant stop between one panorama and another. Among the other places to visit, in addition to Poggibonsi, there is the famous Castellina in Chianti, one of the capitals of the homonymous wine.

Waiting for you is the wonderful Rocca which dates back to the 14th century and overlooks the beautiful main square, illuminated by the lights of the shops and old taverns where you can enjoy a hot meal at night. You cannot leave the Chianti area without visiting Monteriggioni, perhaps one of the most famous medieval cities in all of Italy, where many films have been shot and which is immediately imprinted in the memories of visitors for the walls that still surround the perimeter of the city today. A city, like many others in Chianti, that seems to have stopped time.
