The agriturismo

The agriturismo, with stone walls, is located on the hills of the Chianti area, surrounded by age-old olive groves. It was once home to the Cerchi family (12th century), whom Dante spent time with.

The accommodation

The agriturismo consists of a main house which is square in shape and at whose boundary is a complex that has been renovated and divided into apartments. In the garden, there is Renaissance-style chapel.

The villa, rebuilt in various periods, occupies the site of the ancient castle. It once belonged to the Cerchi family (mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy), then to the Fontebuoni and Gondi families, and is currently owned by the Spagnoli family.

The furniture and furnishings are unique period pieces.

 

Guests have access to two large outdoor car parks, a shared washing machine, a swimming pool, a barbecue area and a games area with ping pong.

5 km away is the Rufina tennis club with two clay courts (one undercover) and one asphalt court covered with synthetic resin.

Numerous marked trails (mostly of CAI - Italian Alpine Club) for hiking (the most beautiful areas are in the southern part of the Chianti hills, amidst fortresses and vineyards). Mountain bikes for rent at the agriturismo. Partner riding stables (in Vicchio) for horse rides or riding lessons.
