Welcome. We are a recently restored 14th century convent located close to the Romanesque Church Pieve di San Leolino, a short walk from Panzano in Chianti. Known for its excellent organic wines and olive oil, Panzano is a charming medieval village with shops, organic wineries and restaurants.
The villa was completely renovated in 2019, focusing on casual comfort, style and the natural beauty of its situation looking towards the hills of Lamole and Volpaia, the owners brought the villa up to a high standard befitting a demanding clientele.
The interiors have been designed and furnished with a mix of contemporary and antique furniture, in keeping with the style of the restoration. There are 6 large air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own fully renovated bathroom with large walk-in rain showers (3 have bathtubs as well). all bedrooms have sitting areas for quiet rests or simply relaxing and curling up with a book.
The living room is comfortably furnished with plenty of soft cushy sofas for resting out of the sun, there is a media room with a large sofa and theatre seats, and a large sun filled chef’s kitchen for cooking classes or pizza parties. Further there is a fully equipped air-conditioned gym.
An impressing courtyard which is dominated by an antique watch tower, provides a lovely space for candlelit, lemon scented al fresco dining. The estate has extensive olive groves and a vineyard for gentle walks. The villa has been designed around a desire for indulging in the natural beauty of the villa and its surroundings, with naturalistic planting schemes, an abundance of fresh herbs and lavender filling the air with their scent. An infinity swimming pool and cedar hot tub overlook the olive grove (the oil is served throughout the week, and available to purchase); orchards, vegetable gardens and fresh eggs from our chickens are available for your pleasure. we invite you to let the Villa embrace you in its heavenly scents and intoxicating charm.
