Europe / Italy / Tuscany
Chianti is synonymous of excellent wine around the world, produced in the homonym region between Florence and Siena.
Among the charming villages set here, Greve, Castellina, Panzano, Radda and Gaiole are considered the main destinations.
If we had to pick one as the Capital of Chianti, it would be Castellina, which is the oldest among them. The charming cobble stone streets, tranquil pace, picturesque views and amazing wine tastings are few of the reasons why Castellina is not to be missed. And do not forget to explore Via delle Volte, an underground tunnel that runs across the town, a refreshing place to escape from the summer sun while still visiting many shops, artisans and restaurants.
Less than a 15-minute drive from Castellina, Amarika, a newly restored and restyled beautiful property is ready to welcome you while you and your loved ones experience a true Tuscan escape.
Everybody will love the soothing feel of the villa interiors, a winning combination between elegance and casual vibe that invites to grab a seat and relax. While a formal dining room is located on the first floor, together with a comfy sitting room, complete with a large smart TV, a generous chef eat-in kitchen is where the guests can dine when the weather outside does not cooperate. Equipped with the necessary for dishing out gourmet meals, the main kitchen is also the perfect place to experience a cooking class to master the secrets of Tuscan cuisine. The kitchen has outdoor access to facilitate alfresco dining.
The villa is set on a three-acre estate with olive grove. A furnished patio overlooks the stone pool for a calm and serene backdrop to any meal served alfresco. An outdoor stone kitchen with BBQ grill makes it easy to enjoy the company and cook for a crowd at the same time. The sundeck equipped with wrought iron furniture and soft pillows is an inviting space for relaxing and having fun in style. A fire pit is also available to be used during the colder months.
Villa Amarika is a great choice for large groups who want to get a glimpse of true Tuscan life. The ideal location of the villa, just 50 minutes from Florence and 25 minutes from Siena, the iconic views of the endless prestigious vine rows, the bucolic and intimate atmosphere, and the villa organic farming methods used to produce their excellent extra virgin olive oil and Chianti wine are fabulous pros to consider.
