Where we are

The Chianti region is located in the heart of Tuscany, it is a hilly area situated between Florence and Siena.
The territory of the Chianti is famous throughout the world for its picturesque landscapes and local products, such as its excellent red wine.  Its hills follow each other in a perfect mosaic of villages which alternate medieval castles, churches, abbeys, monasteries, vineyards, olive groves,streams and forests.

The industry and the imagination of man has shaped the lands of these hills in an effort to create a harmony with the unique and majestic landscapes, and it is this harmony with nature that makes Chianti a charming place where it is possible to discover ancient tastes and traditions otherwise long-lost.

Chianti is a land rich in culture, history and nature, which offers its visitors a wide range of tradition and nature.You can visit Florence and Siena, two of the most famous and beautiful towns of Tuscany and Italy, and at the same time you can explore the perhaps less popular but equally fascinating medieval villages such as San Gimignano and Monteriggioni to discover castles, abbeys and monasteries.
For nature lovers, the Chianti offers attractive routes for walking or riding a bike or a horse. Woods, vineyards and olive groves are the frames of lanes and paths surrounded by quiet and unspoilt environment, where colors and smells combine to create unique picturesque scenery.
