Villa Reigna is one of the most beautiful and elegant county villa’s in Chianti complete with a tennis court and a unique wonderfully sloping stone swimming pool. It is located between Panzano in Chianti and Greve in Chianti at the end of a 2 km. well maintained dirt road in a secluded place that enjoys a wonderful panorama of the rolling hills of Chianti, yet it is walking distance from an excellent restaurant.
The villa that dates back to the 13th Century has large and spacious rooms and a superb collection of antiques and paintings, yet it maintains a very comfortable feel, full of character, which makes it the perfect Tuscan home for a lovely holiday. Surrounded by 10 hectares of Tuscan countryside, vineyards and olive groves, Villa Reigna has its own mature gardens, trees and an antique rose garden.
The villa is large (6,000 sq.ft) and spaciously allocated on two floors with a huge fully-equipped Tuscan kitchen with dining table and doors to the terrace, a formal dining room with French doors leading out to the south facing terraces, a billiard room, a very comfortable family sitting room, a large living room, 5 double/twin bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 5 full bathrooms and a powder room. Each tastefully decorated bedroom is unique and guests will love the master bedroom with its own dressing room, en suite facilities and private balcony with sunset views. The interior of the house is an appealing blend of comfort and elegance. You can either choose to eat in the large dining room or for more informal meals there is the fully equipped and welcoming kitchen. In the evenings there is the ground floor family sitting room where there is a television or one can retreat to the spacious library/living room upstairs. Alternatively one can opt for a game of billiards on the full size table.
Most of the rooms on the ground floor rooms open out onto the gardens and terraces (one on each side of the villa so to enjoy different panoramas) equipped for al fresco meals, ideal in the summer months, a lovely Italian garden (with roses and box edges), a unique stone built sloping swimming pool, bocce court (petanque) and Astroturf covered private tennis court.
Villa Reigna is the perfect base for discovering the rest of Tuscany although with a good restaurant within walking distance and an excellent cook service at the villa, guests will find it hard to leave. A typical day at Villa Reigna holds a variety of options. One can rest by the beautiful stone-lined pool and sunbathe to the gentle sound of the white doves cooing in their nearby dovecote. For those wanting some peace and quiet there are plenty of tranquil spots where one can sit and read, or simply absorb the view and atmosphere of this most beautiful of places. The more energetic can play Bocce (Petanque) on the houses own shaded pitch or there is always tennis on the astroturf court.
