Surrounded by vineyards and nestling in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Villa Bianchi is a true gem, its ideal location and enchanting view is just what you would expect from a Bertolucci movie.

Smaller parts of the villa can be rented separately. The garden has a range of aromatic herbs which inebriate the air, rows of lavender accompany the path to the infinity pool, and the view is enchanting in every direction. Villa Bianchi is ecologically run and most of the products used in the kitchen come straight from its grounds like extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, geese eggs, fruits berries and game meat.
