The Hamlet – Grassina – Florence Countryside

The Hamlet is a historic building, that was first a lookout tower and then a convent. The property is really close to Florence, that is at 15 minutes driving away, and really closer to Antella and Grassina with shops and restaurants. The villa, the large garden and the swimming pool all have a terrific view of Chianti Countryside, Florence and its Duomo.
The Hamlet is a part of a larger Estate once owned by the Medici's. The former Medici Villa is a reimagined Estate that welcomes guests year-round to enjoy the delights of Tuscany and offers the chance to arrange a visit to the vineyards and to the olive groves.
Nestled into the Chianti Colli Fiorentini hills circling Florence where wine has been produced for centuries, this vineyard has a proud history of more than a century of wine production. Our labels has earned the reputation for the production of Chianti DOCG, Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG, Vin Santo, and a Super Tuscan IGT.

In the villa or at the Villa Medicea is also possible to have wine or olive oil tastings, cooking classes or to plan an event in one of the exclusive and suggestive spaces dedicated to it.
The Hamlet has been recently renovated with great care. The latest technologies has been used to respect the Estate’s ancient history. The furnishings and temperature control systems wrap each villa in modern Tuscan comfort. the Hamlet offers 5 independent units around a shared courtyard with views towards Florence and Chianti region. the apartments share a private pool with a solarium, a courtyard with a view towards Florence. The Hamlet can accommodate up to 22 people, and the Villa can be booked singly or in different combinations. Once rented in exclusivity a dining area to eat altogether will be set up.
