A sophisticated, refined villa situated in the rolling Chianti countryside
This seventeenth-century villa is located at the heart of the Nozzole estate among the Chianti hills. It was bought by the Folonari family in 1971 and in 2011 the whole interior was completely refurbished to a very high standard and was enhanced by the addition of antique furniture and paintings as well as more modern accessories and art works.
The villa enjoys a south-westerly outlook, affording wonderful light throughout the day and views of brilliant sunsets in the evenings. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and overlooks a vast forest of maritime pine trees. The recently built pool is offset by an enchanting raised garden, ideal for holding receptions. From the pool, there are spectacular views of the Chianti hills, the vineyards and the pine forest.
The villa’s interiors, which are spacious and light, are simple but refined in keeping with the noble Tuscan tradition. On the ground floor, the main entrance hall leads to a living room with pool table, and to a large dining room which can also be used for wine tastings or meetings. Both rooms open onto a spacious hallway with access to the garden. Located on the same level is a large professional kitchen that can cater for large banquets.
On the first floor, there are two more dining rooms; the main one has a fireplace and a table that can seat up to 30 guests, and the nearby smaller one seats up to eight people. The second kitchen, with fireplace and barbeque, is adjacent to the main dining room and includes a service area. The heart of the villa is the large, comfortable first-floor living room with views over the rolling hills and spectacular sunsets. Nearby is another sitting room with access to the garden and equipped with TV and multimedia system.
Villa Nozzole has nine bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. Access to the upper floors is by a lift.
With its romantic design according to Tuscany’s ancient tradition, yet refreshed by a touch of contemporary elegance, Villa Nozzole has an irresistible charm; it is the perfect location for celebrating your wedding – in its multi-level garden by the panoramic pool, or indoors in one of the dining rooms and the cozy sitting rooms. A charming recently restored barn is also available for larger parties, events or conventions.
