Palazzuolo is a charming villa built in the 15th century, located upon a hill, in the heart of the Chianti region. The location is ideal, lying just about halfway between Florence and Siena and just a short distance from the highway connecting the two cities. The villa is situated in a thousand year old hamlet, surrounded by olive trees, roses and a variety of Mediterranean plants. The large swimming pool is at about 40 mts from the villa, by the pool there is a shady gazebo and a changing room with a fridge. Palazzuolo is flanked on one side by a wide courtyard with covered pergola and dining table, ideal to dine “al fresco” and admire the stunning view of the surroundings.
The interior furnishings of the property are a delightful blend of modern style combined with antiques, the villa has lovely original terracotta tiled floors.The kitchen is brand-new and fully equipped, the dining room is spacious with a hundred year old fireplace. All the bedrooms are tastefully furnished and have their own en suite bathrooms.
