    Overview

    Plenty of room in a wide natural landscape

    Filigrano is a large wine-growing estate located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. It crowns the top of a hill and boasts magnificent views of beautiful valleys to the Castellina in Chianti opposite and San Donato in Poggio.

    Centre of this beautiful and spacious property is the antique hamlet: the centrally situated main house, with the large green courtyard in front of it, is surrounded by the smaller adjacent buildings: an old barn, several farmhouses, and a pretty chapel surrounded by cypresses and a garden pavilion. The gardens are immense: neat lawns and flower beds surround the various houses and paths; vineyards, olive groves and woods gently merge into the open, Mediterranean landscape. 

    The estate stretches across 60 acres of farmland which lies 300-400 meters above sea level. The wide view over the hills is outstanding. The home-made wine is also excellent. The fattoria (farm) products can be purchased in the hamlet: Chianti Classico, table wines, vintages, white wines, Vinsanto, Grappa and olive oil. A 2 km private gravel road leads to the hamlet.

    The houses of the large farmstead are made entirely of natural stone. The individual apartments are housed in the main building and in the various outbuildings. In the design of the apartments great care was taken to ensure a maximum of room and privacy. 

    Each apartment has its own private outdoor area with pretty cast iron patio furniture. The outdoor areas are designed in such a way that there is a comfortable distance to the adjacent seat.

    The apartments are furnished in a rustic country style and have harmoniously mingled old with new. The atmosphere is typically Tuscan: terracotta floors, wooden open-plan ceilings, large fireplaces. All bathrooms and kitchenettes have been made in 2009.

    Extensive outdoor areas provide enough variety: mountain bikes can be hired, there are hiking trails on the estate and you may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the farm, there is a children's play area, a hard tennis court dating back to the early nineties, a barbecue and, of course, a large swimming pool.

    The pool is a proud 16x8 meters of which a small area (4x2) is designed as a baby pool. The pool is about 300 m from the apartments and can be reached via a gravel road. Located on a large, sunny plateau the pool boasts magnificent views in all directions. A stone patio with sun loungers borders the pool and a few steps away you will find a large lawn with further seating arrangements. 

    There are further apartments in an ancient farmhouse about 500 m distant from the main house (Filigrano Nuovo / also featured in our portfolio); Filigrano and Filigrano Nuovo share the lovely pool and the tennis court.

    The nearest shops are 3 km away in San Donato, approx. a 10 minute's drive from the apartments. This pretty Medieval village offers grocery stores, a cappuccino bar, a bank, post office, gas station and two restaurants. There are many other small trattoria and specialty restaurants in the area - enough to try a different one every evening. The Chianti town of Castellina is only 13 km away and the famous Medieval town of San Gimignano a mere 25 km. Florence and Siena are both just 35 km from the estate.

    Our Guests Reviews

    We were two families and stayed on this property in June. We loved this property. The area and the property are beautiful. We were given two units that combined together so we had two kitchens, two living rooms and we're able to comfortably sleep 10 adults. 
    The farm is well positioned for day trips to Florence, Siena, and other Tuscan towns. You will need a rental car to enjoy the area. We rented a car in Florence near the train station from Avis. Several other less well known car rental companies also had locations near the Florence train station. The farm is about 35 km from Florence and 38 km from Siena. I recommend a GPS or cell phone for navigation.
    The area aound the farm offers a few good resturants and a supermarket. We actually enjoyed our meals at the local resturants better then the food we had in Florence or Rome earlier in our trip.

    I would highly recommend this place for a very relaxing holidays. Swimming pool is gorgeous, a bit cold though for this time a year. We are staying in the 2 bedroom apartment which is so beautiful and has everything you need for a self catering accommodation. I will definitely come back again.

    Everything was very nice, lovely, amazing, even very friendly!

    Dear Bettina,
    I just wanted to let you know that our party very much enjoyed our week's stay at Filigrano. The house was comfortable, its location was convenient and we loved the property. Please pass on our thanks to the owner Alessandro.

    Wir waren letztes Jahr in Filigrano und sehr zufrieden. Können Sie uns etwas vergleichbares für dieses Jahr anbieten?

    The villa is in the perfect location, just 35 minutes outside Florence. It overlooks a spectacular valley of vineyards, and the sunsets are amazing. A few minutes away is the small town of San Donato in Poggio, which has a grocery store and other shops.

    The Chianti area: Famous for its wines - the Chianti Classico - this area of Tuscany has more than just world-class oenological pleasures to offer. The curious visitor will come accross many delightful villages, each of them with a history of its own. Let us simply mention lesser known gems such as the romanesque church of Sant'Appiano, the Basilica of Impruneta, the fortified castle of Monteriggioni and the roofless romanesque abbey of San Galgano which are all close. And don’t miss the Saturday market in the small town of Greve.

    San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers outside the town. The town also is known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area.

    Florence: The city lies on the Arno River and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages. It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. The historic centre of Florence continues to attract millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.

    Siena: The Sienese have no doubt, their town is the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, if not all of Italy. Siena has remained a Gothic city. Renaissance, one of the major influences in Florence, hardly affected the urban development of Siena. The city unfolds around the main shell-shaped square called "Il Campo." Twice a year the famous horse race known as the "Palio" takes place here. The narrow streets are lined with old shops and small cafes, while churches and museums are real treasures of the fourteenth century.

    Restaurants: eating out is a way of getting to know the area. Simple local trattorias rub their shoulders with more sophisticated restaurants specialised in refined cuisine. Fresh local produce allways plays the leading role. 

    Local craftsmanship: hand-made terracotta pots from Impruneta, hand painted pottery from Montelupo, mouth-blown crystal glass from the neighbouring village Colle Val d'Elsa, not to mention the south bank of the Arno river in Florence where you will find a multitude of craftsmen working silver, leather, wood, glass, paper and metal.
