The property, immersed in a refined Tuscan landscape of ancient farmhouses, olive groves and working vineyards, with wonderful views enjoying the captivating beauty and fabulous aura of the Chianti Classico region, is only about 3km above the famous market town of Greve in the desirable location of the `golden triangle` between the High Greve valley and close to both Badia a Passignano and Panzano.
The current owners lovingly converted this former country villa of a noble Florentine family into a very successful family-run boutique hotel with restaurant. The villa has been elegantly and sympathetically restored with particular attention paid to detail and has been decorated by one of Florence's most notable architects. Whilst retaining many original features it now offers a sophisticated and sumptuous environment, creating a glorious, unique atmosphere of charm, warmth and history.
On passing through the charming courtyard entrance, flanked by the old olive press and the former family chapel buildings one arrives at the hotel reception. This then leads naturally through to the delightful bar and restaurant rooms, which have direct access to the outside dining terrace and the very beautiful and romantic walled garden and further gardens beyond.
Behind the reception are the vibrant professional hotel kitchens and pantries, cleverly designed to host cooking lessons as well as providing high-end cuisine to guests.
There are twelve bedroom suites, each unique in size, shape and layout and situated throughout the villa on all levels. The twelfth suite is nestled perfectly in the garden annexe.
Set outside the formal walled garden and up a short path to higher ground is the large swimming pool within its own charming garden terrace with fantastic views over the surrounding landscape of the Chianti Classico area.
There are 2 further structures included. One provides accommodation for the night porter and the second is a technical area currently used as a laundry and boiler room.
In the outline planning permission for further expansion, there is an allocation of 300 sqm for an extra 9 junior suites and a further 150 sqm for a spa and eventual indoor pool. The extra revenue from this expansion has been estimated to double the existing turnover making it more viable for opening the hotel all year round and an inevitable increase in demand during the off-season and low-season periods. The current owners are available for an eventual handover period, consultancy work, general collaboration and would also be open to a possible joint venture.
Not included in this sale, and by separate negotiation, the current owners have several other hospitality opportunities affiliated with the hotel as well as a wine business that currently supplies the hotel bar and restaurant, which could be for sale.
