Europe's most idyllic place to live by FORBES

Our parents ,Luigi and Maria Giulia, both coming from noble families desired a house in the country and decided to take permanent residence in the heart of Chianti, conveniently located within easy distance of both Florence and Siena.

Our beautiful 13th century Italian farmhouse is a monument to the restoration lovingly undertaken by our parents. On visiting the Chianti region,they fell in love with the unspoilt countryside and tranquillity that are so characteristic of this olive-tree clad and wine-producing district. They visited several properties but this 13th century building in Gaiole in Chianti, with its striking appearance and beautiful surrounds, seemed ideal: mama fell in love with the house peculiar architecture and papà with the many fig trees in the property. And we fell in love with the countryside as it typically happens to “city people” at last discovering the stars in the sky and the green of the trees.

So now we are proud to live in Gaiole in Chianti whic has been awards from a group of Experts as No. 1 of “Europe's Most Idyllic Places To Live ” If you want you can read the article on Forbes at the following page :
