Verdiana

· Villa

The Chianti region embodies the landscape and the views that are the landmarks of Tuscany. And it is here that Villa Verdiana is located, nestled among vineyards, and olive trees.  Once you reach the property, protected by a lush forest, you are welcomed by central ancient oak tree and a very ample lawn where the main villa and two separate units stand proud. The traditional stone structures with their terracotta shingles, soaking in the intense colors of the Tuscan sun, create a dreamy atmosphere where you can experience true and effortless peace. Verdiana is ideal for large groups thanks to the separate units which allow to be comfortable and close enough to spend quality time together in this crowd-pleasing property.

Location

What to do in Chianti

Famous for its art and architecture, Florence is an obligatory destination for the first-timer visitor of Italy. However, while exploring the historical center is something that cannot be missed, the pristine studded landscapes and the enchanted medieval villages set on the famous Tuscan rolling hills surrounding Florence are well worth a visit.
The most famous area to explore is the Chianti, a blessed land that covers a rather large wine-producing region of Tuscany, reaching from Florence to Siena, and all the way out to Pisa. Chianti's must see sights are the wine villages of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. Along the road visit the Badia di Coltibuono and/or Castello di Brolio and do not forget to pick up some wine to enjoy at the villa!
