The dominant position of Villa Vianci in the hills between Chianti Classico and Siena is perhaps one of the more endearing characteristics of the villa – though by no means the only beautiful aspect of this luxury villa rental.
Restructured as a wedding gift and then once again by their grandson into a deluxe holiday home, Villa Vianci boasts comfort, space, modern amenities and a pair of very gracious hosts.
A place meant to be lived by a family, large group of friends or colleagues travelling together. The owners have transformed large common area, the exceptionally luminous rooms and the refreshing garden area into the perfect highlights which are sure to enhance your holiday experience in Tuscany.
This Villa is More than a Building
The owners will tell you that their home is made for families and large groups. The exceptional floorplan guarantees lots of large common areas both inside and out ideal for organizing events, parties or even just an afternoon of catching up on the family news. The ground floor presents itself with an enormous foyer that opens to the living room, dining room, modern kitchen, guest bathroom and the front, back and side gardens. The living room is easily divided into several small areas, yet is open and welcoming with large French doors that open to terrace. This terrace houses a ping pong table, chairs, age old lemon trees and offers a constant breeze from the nearby cypress tress. The dining room large enough for the entire group is lush and will certainly invoke images of formal dinners by candle light. The house boasts a newly refurbished kitchen with all modern amenities and lots of space for preparing meals – or in house cooking lessons or…why not have a chef dazzle you with local specialties.
Live Your Passion
Whether you like history, food or sport, Villa Vianci is in the center of it all. The Villa is located near Colle di Val d’Elsa just outside the small town in Chianti of Staggia, and only 8 km from the fascinating Siena, well known for its Palio horse race, one of the most important in Italy. It is only a few minutes from the lovely medieval village of San Gimignano and Castellina and not too far from other charming Tuscan villages such as Certaldo, Volterra and the towns in Chianti of Gaiole, Radda, Greve, Castelnuovo Berardenga.
Chianti gives guests the chance to sip some of the best wines in the world and the chance to visit important cellars or attend wine tastings generally accompanied by other delicious Tuscan specialties. In less than an hour’s drive you can reach the beautiful Florence and the thermal springs of Petriolo for those who desire relaxing thermal baths. The pool is set in an idyllic context, surrounded by trees and cypresses to make you enjoy special and reserved moments under the Tuscan sky. For sport lovers, there are the Abbadia Golf Club in Val d’Elsa and the Tennis Club in Staggia Senese.
Ciao! We are Chiara and Tommaso, a young couple that a few years back decided to leave the splendid Florence behind in search of old roots and new adventures. We both forever loved the Tuscan countryside so decided to take grab the opportunity of taking care of the old family villa built in the 18th century, remodeling and modernizing it so that we could welcome travelers from near and afar.
Seeing the happiness and pleasure our guests enjoy as they stay at Villa Vianci has only strengthened our resolve to continue along this road, to continually seek new ideas and ways of improving our hospitality. We get excited with the idea that the villa can offer both modern comforts at the same time as making our guests “travel back in time” to a period in which life's rhythms were a bit more calm and respectful of the beauty of our land. We look to sharing this with you!
