Hey!! Leonardo is a traditional Tuscan cottage, carefully restored for a group up to 4 persons. A typical stone house with an incredible view over the rolling hills. The village Greve in Chianti with it's famous butcher and wine shops is only 2 kilometer from the villa. The house is situated in a nice and peaceful corner of the villa. It has a furnished outside space with panoramic view. You will find a fully equipped house. We share the swimming pool among our olive trees with you!
Slow down life's pace
Leonardo is a perfect place to learn more about the inspiring slow lifestyle of the area. A delightful attached, stone-built cottage at ground level with a private garden directly overlooking the valley of Greve in Chianti. At the corner of Agriturismo Villa Prono is the sunny lane with a dining table, four chairs, four deck chairs and a garden parasol. An ideal place to relax whilst enjoying the finest Chianti wine matured in the our cantina. The town Greve in Chianti only 2 km from the villa.
Dear Guest. This description may seem endless, but it is worth reading as you will gain a lot of useful information!
Entrance from the garden to the dining and kitchen area which also includes a relax area with a fireplace. Opposite the kitchen equipped with oven, gas hobs and a fridge with separate freezer compartment is a table and four chairs. The garden is separated from the neighbouring cottage by a large square where private parking at the villa is possible for Leonardo's guests. The garden is a perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast and dinner “al fresco”. Every night you can dance under the stars.
The swimming pool is only a short walk from the villa, nestled among gnarled olive trees where you can relax away from the bustle of the city.
A small hallway leads to the two separate bedrooms and a separate bathroom with shower. To the left is a cosy bedroom furnished with a double bed and a wardrobe. In front of the bedroom is the bathroom. Straightforward is the bedroom with two single iron beds in brass gold, a small table in walnut with a chair and an vintage wardrobe. The room is big enough for a third single bed if requested. All rooms are decorated in a traditional country style. Beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors are found throughout.
Facilities and equipment in the house:
The size of Leonardo is 68 sqm, with one bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, furnished garden, easy access to shared pool and parking at the villa. Provided with fresh bed linen and towels. With vintage furnitures, open fireplace, fan, drying rack, Vape plug-in (mosquito repellent), high children chairs and children bed available upon request - for free.
Why come to Villa Prono?
Leonardo is for lovers of nature and wine as we produce our own Chianti Classico at the villa. It is possible to visit the vineyards and the wine cellar. You may indeed enjoy the best wine at the top of the valley of Greve in Chianti, only a short drive from Florence and Siena. We live at 370 metres altitude. Perfect wine position!
During summer you will enjoy the swimming pool as much as we do. It has a top position among our organic olive trees with a lot of space to get a nice suntan. The villa is nice cool during day and night. Only if we really hit the max we all suffer.
The villa has a rustic style with respect for the original materials of the area. A lot of terracotta floors and wooden beam at the ceiling. The villa has a loooong story so make sure you want to hear it if you ask….
The villa is huge and we have other six houses where guests come and enjoy the countryside. We love to divide this peaceful place in the hills of Chianti. We love the silence and the incredible bird song of an evening. Also the stars in the nighttime. The trees. The garden is pretty nice too, although somewhat rural like a classic Mediterranean garden. It is definitely a place to relax and unwind. And walk.
Facilities for our guests:
Shared swimming pool with furnitures, shared barbecue in the garden, washing machine and ironing in separate room, free parking, we make reservations for restaurants and taxi, direct sales of wine, visit to wine cellar and vineyards. Approach road is paved in good conditions. Walking path between the vineyards to Greve in Chianti.
WIFI spot- it is good and works very well most of the time but not supergood. So if you want to download films and other heavy files please do it before leaving home because here you'll only have super fast connection to nature, wine and the famous Italian slow lifestyle.
We live Andrea - my husband - and me - Henriette - at the villa. We have children but they live in different countries. Apart from Italian Andrea speaks Dutch and English. I am Danish and speak Italian, English and German. We are easy going and love to talk about everything and of course - about wine. Sometimes I organise happy wine hour and mindfulness wine tasting for our guests. Andrea is more a wine-cellar-kind-of-guy!
A perfect place for guests who love and appreciate a rustic winery/villa in search for relax and unwind and who have a taste of real slow Chianti life.
From Greve there are regular buses to and from Florence and the journey takes about an hour. Unfortunately there is not a good public transport network in Chianti. We recommend that you come by car so that you can reach all the lovely, small towns around Chianti.
The local authority of Greve in Chianti levies a tax on non-residents staying overnight in the municipality (imposta di soggiorno). The cost is €1,5 per person (over 14 years old) per night for a maximum of seven nights. This tax needs to be paid in cash at the end of your stay on the table of the kitchen. Please remember as we often forget!
