villa layout
Castello di Volognano and its attractive village lie in the Chianti hills just 15 kms from Florence, in a very panoramic position with a 360 degree view of the olive groves and vineyards that are part of the extensive property. In the past the castle has hosted such distinguished people as Giacchino Rossini, Giosuè Carducci and Enrico Fermi. It has undergone a detailed restoration and offers a wonderful atmosphere of times gone by, and is furnished with antique pieces perfectly in harmony with the style of the castello. The outside areas, which are very well looked after, include an italianate garden and a swimming-pool which has the unique feature of being build partly inside the old lemon-house and partly outside. The property is very well equipped and has washing-machine, dishwasher, satellite-TV, telephone. Free Wi -Fi in the common areas. Next to the castle is a small village which is partly inhabited, and the large wine-cellars where they produce the wines from the farm and extra-virgin olive oil. They can organize special tastings in a large and attractive room. The nearest town is Pontassieve which is about 2.5 kms away, and other small villages can be reached in just a few minutes by car. Siena is about 80 kms away.

Testimonials
"Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed the CASTELLO DI VOLOGNANO It is a wonderful property and we have had some memorable times there. Silvana was an extremely welcoming hostess to us.

Thank you for all of your assistance.

"Left the castle yesterday. We had a wonderful time -- it exceeded our expectations. Sorry we were not able to meet you. We had no internet access so we could not email you and the phones were down so we couldn't call you. We would not have been able to see you on Wednesday at 3:00 in any event as we were on a day trip. However, I wish we could have arranged to meet you at another time. We're in Rome today and that's the only reason I can contact you now.

Mille grazie for your help in arranging our trip to Tuscany!

With kind regards,
Gwen"
