The estate is situated on the edge of Tuscany’s famous “Conca d’Oro” in Panzano in Chianti offering a breath-taking view of undulating hills covered by vineyards, olive groves, cypresses and oak tree forests.
The chirping of birds, the calling of deer as well as the occasional rattle of agricultural machinery will enhance your relaxation in this rural paradise far away from the stress of your everyday life.
Even though the Tuscan summer can be hot and sunny, you will not have to retreat into your air-conditioned apartment, because you will surely find a variety of shady spots in our spacious garden and cypress woods surrounding our house.
In the wintertime you will find time to read, hear music, cook using some typical ingredients, taste excellent wines and fully relax.
La Valletta is an old Tuscan estate dating back to 1920, that we have restored in 2012 with great care and love. All external walls have been preserved in their original style and layout. In the interior we have also made extensive use of the original materials using old floor tiles and wooden beams. However, all apartments are fully equipped with all modern amenities you might expect.
Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the highest point of Conca d’Oro, the Golden Basin of Panzano in Chianti. Our swimming pool, surrounded by lush gardens is the ideal location to relax and stay cool during the long, hot summer days while enjoying the magnificent view of one of the most beautiful valleys of the Chianti Classico area.
The “Ugolino” golf course can easily be reached in 15/20 min. and horse-rides can be booked in the slightly more distant Monteriggioni.
There are wonderful paths for hiking and bicycling in the surrounding countryside – on request we can provide you with all the necessary info and contacts.
You have a wide variety of cultural or shopping excursions to choose from. Florence, Siena or San Gimignano as well as a number of small, less known destinations offer intriguing sightseeing as well as shopping or gastronomic opportunities.
