Situated amidst the green hills of the Chianti Classico, this renovated holiday cottage of 130 sqm allows you to quickly reach the main tourist sights of the Chianti area, thanks to its position. Greve in Chianti is often considered the entrance gate into the Chianti region since it is the first major town you reach as you head south of Florence toward Siena. It is located along the SR222 provincial road, locally known as the Chiantigiana road, at about 30 km south of Florence and 40 km north of Siena.
We recommend visiting Greve for various reasons. It is a small town, not lying at the top of a hill but its interestingly shaped main square is the perfect location from which to wander around, enjoy an espresso, gelato cone or wine glass on a stop here on your trip through Chianti. What is there to see in Greve? Let's start from its history to understand what we see today.

The villa has a large lawn of 400 sq metres equipped with a panoramic terrace, a beautiful pool and a large parking lot. Pretty and broad view of the countryside rich in vineyards. Equipped and enclosed lawn with panoramic terrace and swimming pool. One of the rooms of the house, which is completely independent, is occasionally used by the owner. Steep staircases.

Interiors: on the ground floor there is a porch of 12 sq metres, lounge with satellite TV system, dining room, kitchen equipped with all accessories (dishwasher, refrigerators, gas fires, washing machine), a storeroom with laundry. On the first floor there are 3 rooms of which 2 with access to the external patio and 2 bathrooms with shower.

Area Information

Greve in Chianti is often considered the entrance gate into the Chianti region since it is the first major town you reach as you head south of Florence toward Siena. It is located along the SR222 provincial road, locally known as the Chiantigiana road, at about 30 km south of Florence and 40 km north of Siena.
We recommend visiting Greve for various reasons. It is a small town, not lying at the top of a hill but its interestingly shaped main square is the perfect location from which to wander around, enjoy an espresso, gelato cone or wine glass on a stop here on your trip through Chianti. What is there to see in Greve? Let's start from its history to understand what we see today.
Greve's history is connected to the beautiful Castle of Montefioralle located above the town - Greve was the castle's marketplace starting in the 13th century). Greve's strategic position at the crossroads of three important pilgrimage roads - the Chiantigiana road, the road to Valdarno and the road to Val di Pesa - favored its economic growth. At the beginning of the 1500s, the particularly shaped square was already there and was later described by the Grand Duke Leopold I as "a beautiful square where every Saturday a big market of livestock and foodstuff takes place". That market is still taking place every Saturday even today!
The Main Square: Piazza Matteotti is the main piazza in Greve and even if it isn't "square", it is still the focal point of the town. A small town with a few museums and monuments to visit, Greve still offers a chance to enjoy a relaxing walk in and around the main square as well as a supermarket (Coop along the SS222 that cross the town) for anyone staying in an apartment in the surroundings. Furthermore, it's very lively with regular events, including food and wine festivals where music and markets intermingle all year round even if they are concentrated in the summer and early fall. We suggest you stop at the tourist information office near the city hall on the main square to ask for an events calendar for Greve and the area.
Every Saturday morning the weekly market still takes place on this same square. What makes the square particular, apart from its strange shape, is the portico on three sides of the square. The portico continues to serve as the frame for artisan shops, workshops and restaurants selling local products.
Some of these shops are famous so make sure to stop by: one of these is the Antica Macelleria Falorni, a Tuscan butcher shop that has been in the same spot since 1729, and another is the Bottega dell'Artigianato, a shop specialized in hand-woven baskets and products made in olive wood. Also located on the square is the Palazzo del Comune, the city hall built in neo-Renaissance style on the site of the ancient Renaissance building. In the square near city hall is the large statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano, famous explorer that discovered the Hudson Bay in New York and who was born just a few kilometers to the north of Greve. (You'll see the Castello da Verrazzano along the Chiantigiana road before reaching Greve if you're headed south from Florence - great stop for wine tastings!)
Don't Miss Montefioralle: make sure to visit Montefioralle, the small fortified village located on a hill above Greve less than a mile away from Greve's main square. Here the famous explorer Amerigo Vespucci was born; the ancestral home is located along the main street, its only distinguishing mark is the family's coat of arms with a wasp above its doorway - see if you can find it!
