Il Filare

In Tuscany, there is a gem of a Villa

In the heart of Tuscany, there is a gem of a Villa, known as Il Filare, situated 4km from Gaiole, in Chianti, which was listed by Forbes Magazine as the most idyllic place in Europe.

This distinguished villa enjoys a proud 500-year legacy, both as an important farmhouse and as a lookout for monitoring the advance of the armies of Florence and Siena, as they engaged in complex power struggles that marked this sun-blessed land for 100’s of years.

This striking villa’s thick stone walls, central courtyard structure, strategic hilltop position, and watchtower stand witness to the rich history of the territory.
Il Filare’s two hectares of secluded gardens are alive with vines, olives, cypress trees, and local herbs. The estate has a vegetable garden and produces its own extra virgin olive oil and spring water from its natural well.
The villa is set around a large central courtyard that can host events or special parties for up to 25 guests, with a stone brick pizza oven and a barbeque area.

A luxurious family home

The heated infinity pool is ring-fenced from other areas of the garden and surrounded by wide open lawns with exceptional views of the Tuscan hills.

The villa is fitted with state-of-the-art modern conveniences and amenities, such as solar panels, underfoot heating powered by a wood bio-mass system, and AC throughout the entire villa.
This spacious 600 sqm villa, is a luxurious family home with 5 bedrooms & en-suite bathrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests. Two more bedrooms will be available by 2023, in the charming cottage adjacent to the main villa, and will accommodate 4 guests.
