Historic Villa on Country Estate incl. Vineyards in Chianti

Superb, like the view which it offers onto the hillsides of the Chianti, this aristocratic 18th Century manor had historically illustrious owners. The splendid position towards the south gives an unforgettable panorama onto this part of Tuscany which conserves untouched the character of this landscape from the times of the Rinascimento, in a joining of vinyards, cypresses with the occasional country houses on the hill-tops. The property includes a vast wooded estate, also with vinyards and olive-goves.

Property overview

This villa is an impressive, elegant, aristocratic and important manor, which, together with the nearby chapel pertaining to it, dominates the Chianti landscape from its position on the hill. It is south facing, as are almost all of the noble houses in Italy. From many of the rooms and from the terrace-like lawn in front of the villa one enjoys a wonderful view onto the vineyards. From the swimming-pool, which lies secluded at the back of the central area of the property, one looks out onto the hilly landscape so characteristic of Tuscany.

The villa of the 18th Century stands slightly separated from the surrounding, discrete agricultural buildings, which serve the wine-production. Built by the Pianigiani family, it became property of the Strozzi princely family in 1850 and of the Barons Sonnino around the end of the 19th Century. One member of that family a few years later became Prime Minister of Italy.


On the Ground Floor and 1st Floor the villa’s floor area totals 1.600 m². To this are added 300 m² on the 2nd Floor (attic area) as well as 100 m² in the cellar. The winery consists of 1.500 m² plus further 150 m²; guest house I has 400 m² and II has 70 m².

100 hectares of soil – mainly forest – belong to the property of the villa. Furthermore there are vineyards lying immediately in front of the villa, which give it its amazing view and which are 7.3 hectares of further 11.8 hectares soil (Part 1). There also are olive groves of 4 hectares (Part 2) and pastures etc. of 2.5 hectares (Part 3) therefore a total of 18 hectares which would be sold as part of the package by the same owner and his partners.
