General


This is a value-for-money affordable way to be right in the heart of Chianti Classico country.  Exactly midway between Florence and Siena, each 37 kilometres away, Girasole del Chianti is within easy walking distance (900 m) of the main piazza in Panzano - this avoids the need to get the car out every time.

Renovated from top to bottom this barn conversion is split into two: the friendly, wine and olive oil producing, owner occupies the lower floor while Girasole del Chianti makes up the top floor.

Location


Its proximity to the centre of town means that the Chiantigiana wine road passes quite near to the top of the property.  Making it within easy reach of the art cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa and there are also endless things to see and do nearby.

The beautiful hilltop village of Panzano is just 900m away with shops, restaurants, a popular Sunday market and a world famous butcher.

The larger town of Greve is just a 10 minute drive and offers a large supermarket, several banks, chemist and restaurants. Greve right in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region is home to of course, the largest wine fair in Chianti and is held every September.   Wine tours and tasting experiences sweep as far as the eye can see.  The landscapes surrounding Greve offer some quite literally breathtaking hikes through the Monte San Michele Nature Park, but also pleasant strolls for those a little less adventurous!  And for those who appreciate the historic artefacts this region has to offer, the church of Santa Croce houses some of the most magnificent paintings from the school of the Fra Angelico.  Greve also houses the San Francesco Museum of Sacred Art.  Originally built in the 16th Century and completed later in 1866, it has a collection of valuable ecclesiastical artefacts and artwork.

Girasole del Chianti is an ideal base to explore the region with Siena and Florence equidistant at approximately 37km away.  Siena is one of the most unspoilt medieval cities in Italy with treasures scattered throughout its churches and museums.  Beautiful gothic buildings combine with large open squares for the best Italian past time - people watching.  During the 14th Century the Sienese School of Painting produced masterpieces from the likes of Pietro, Lorenzetti and Martini and now housed and marvelled at in the Pinacoteca, the Palazzo Pubblico and the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo.

For those who love the artworks of the Renaissance period, Florence the home of the Renaissance itself, has flourished since the 15th Century as a city of art, culture and international trading.  Home to some of Italy’s most greatest artistic treasures in the world, it is a veritable banquet with the likes of Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Raphael pieces, to name but a few.  Our suggestions would be the Cathedral, the Uffizi, the Palace of Bargello and the churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce.  The library of San Lorenzo is a wonderful exhibition of Michelangelo’s artistic genius, and the bridge of Ponte Vecchio that stretches across the Arno River - an architectural marvel.
