Description

Already from 1056 the castle of Poggio al Vento was one of the more important fortified structures of Chianti. On one of the highest hill at 400 meters of height, the fortified village offers, from its extraordinary position, a complete panorama and, crossed the fortified monastery of Badia a Passignano located at the foot of the hill, your gaze will move the hills along the river Pesa, from Tavarnelle to Barberino. Today a crenellated wall introduces to the heart of the castle where it opens the court. This is dominated by stone façades of the main building and from the church, with a sober portal in pietra serena due to a restoration in the XIX century. The elegant structure, with its recent conservative renovation, has been able to safeguard the precious historical and artistic details, combining the luxurious details of the best tradition of Florence and the Tuscan craftsmanship in the meticulous choice of contemporary materials (bathrooms and kitchens). In addition, the choice of hand-made glazed terracotta tiles or hand-carved wooden mirrors, makes these reconstituted spaces worthy of the anciently of the place. On the side of the house, a large garden enclosed by a wall, like a medieval 'hortus conclusus', offers a stone paved space with a large table to eat and a large lawn lined with flowers in hand-made terracotta hoofs and ditches. In the lower garden, under the medieval walls of the house, the swimming pool awaits you for fresh moments of relax, admiring the wonderful view of the Chianti hills, from Panzano to Radda, and the countryside full of olive groves and vineyards at the foot of the castle. The center of Florence is only 30 km away and it is easily reachable on the Florence Siena free way in about 35 minutes.
