Castello di Cabbiavoli
Villa Cabbiavoli. Nestled in the heart of the Chianti Valley, the Castle is found just 30 km from Florence. It is located on the Via Francigena, the historic road that connected France with Rome. The Villa’s story goes back to the 13th century. This beautiful building was later turned into an elegant Villa for an important aristocratic family, and was owned by the same family until the 17th century.
The Castle was recently restored but elements of the original structure are still visible in the square, brick tower and in the walls around the Villa. The restoration preserved original structural details while modern amenities were added to satisfy an international and exclusive clientele.
The Estate produces a red Chianti wine from Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes and Extra-virgin olive oil from a cold press of the Estate’s olives.
The large and well-cared for garden is enclosed by a wall and offers beautiful views of the surrounding hillsides. There are many shady trees that provide cool shade on hot days. The Limonaia is equipped for outdoor dining.
Up to 5 cars can park outside the Villa.
The private pool offers a refreshing place for relaxing. It is next to a covered loggia, for those who wish to stay in the shade, and there is a refrigerator and shower.
The pool is open from the beginning of May until the end of September.
The Villa’s 500 sq. metres are split on 2 levels that are connected by a stairway. The recent restoration preserved the Villa’s original structural details such as high, vaulted and wood-beamed ceilings. There are terracotta and tiled floors, and the furnishings are elegant, country Tuscan style.
