Villa For Sale in Chianti
This villa in Toscana is a Tuscan dream, offering the luxury of 300 years of masonry steeped in the spirit of rural endeavour and built on a natural platform surrounded by a variety of greenery that includes cypresses, oaks, olive trees, jujubes and bearberries. Found at the top of one of the hills around Montespertoli, the farmhouse offers a splendid view of the Chianti countryside, in a perfect example of the soothing tranquillity of rural Tuscany.
Olive groves and centuries-old trees surround the various structures of the complex, offering the chance to venture out amidst the colours and scents of the hill, all the way to a natural spring which – together with an artesian well 100 metres deep - contributes to supplying the pool with water and irrigating the land.
A thorough renovation has transformed this 18th –century farm into an elegant, comfortable villa that has remained attached to its rural tradition, but without neglecting to set aside a number of different areas for comfort and leisure-time pursuits: inside the pool there is a Jacuzzi zone, while a set of rooms beneath the pool holds a workout room fully outfitted with Technogym equipment and a sauna; the old cellar space has been transformed into a smoking lounge, plus a music room with a corner bar designed in the Liberty style; as for the barn, it has been transformed into a refined, ethnically decorated billiard room, while the tavern zone holds a delightful, mini-apartment whose terrace is shaded by a mighty oak.
A roomy veranda filled with lights and colours, plus sitting rooms with chimneys along the walls and country-style decorations, are the result of the restructuring of the oxen stalls. Outside, in addition to a double garage with two separate entrances, there is an “Aroma Garden” found on a portion of the grounds across from the villas, while what was once the horse stable is now a panoramic open-air space where guests can be entertained in a sheltered outdoor sitting room.

Located in the easternmost portion of the Valdelsa zone, Montespertoli sits atop the hill that separates Pesa River valley from the Elsa River valley.
All around is the type of countryside found on postcards of Tuscany: green, rolling hills planted with vineyards and olive groves and crossed by rows of cypress trees and dirt roads.
Though the area has been inhabited since the time of the Etruscans, and they were followed by the Romans, most of the documented mention of the town begins in the 12th century, a period during which the history of Montespertoli was tied to that of Florence and of the Via Volterrana, a road that passed through the territory of Montespertoli before joining the Via Francigena near Certaldo, placing the town in contact with the other towns and cities of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Volterra and Pisa), which exercised a positive influence on its economic development, as shown by the large weekly market held in the nearby San Pietro District.
The strategic position of Montespertoli has been prized throughout the centuries by the mighty families of the Tuscan nobility and aristocracy, such as the Guicciardinis, the Frescolbadis, the Acciaiuolis, the Rucellais, the Strozzis and the Barbadoris, all of whom built impressive, elegant dwellings and castles that still adorn the marvellous countryside of Montespertoli.
Located in the Chianti territory of Tuscany, Montespertoli is one of the unchallenged capitals of wine and olive oil, rightfully recognised as one of Tuscany’s most important “Wine Towns” and “Olive Oil Towns”. But it is also renowned for its truffles and, together with Montaione, is a member in good standing of the “Truffle Towns” Association.
