I want to live here! This is what comes to mind when you arrive at Villa Chianti Sunset, right from the welcoming entrance in the garden. The Villa was designed down to the smallest details so you can enjoy Tuscany as one should, Villa Chianti Sunset is truly pleasant and a great home all-year-round. The villa is divided into three units (easily reunited into one) allows you to host friends from all over the world and share moments of pure joy sitting in front of the various fireplaces or comfortably in the garden enjoying the view of golden sunsets… drinking wine and sharing dreams… This is the spirit of this beautiful home!
Villa Chianti Sunset is a real treasure due to its picturesque views over the rolling Tuscan hills and the exquisite renovations which have kept the rustic Tuscan elements. The bathrooms were all designed by the well-known interior designer Riccardo Barthel and the finest materials and finishing were used throughout the villa during the renovations. Throughout the villa, there is still the original terracotta flooring, antique fireplaces, wooden-beamed ceilings, and brick archways. The outside of the building still boasts the original stones and shines the glam of a traditional Rustic Tuscan Villa.
Villa Chianti Sunset lays on 1 hectare (2.47 acres) of land with about 90 olive trees and includes a lovely infinity pool of 9 m x 14 m, sunbeds, a charming pergola, and a plethora of outdoor seating areas for relaxation and long Tuscan meals. The views from the poolside, garden, and bedrooms are like picture-perfect frames of Tuscany, so awe-inspiring! In the distance, over the hills, vineyards, and olive groves you can see San Gimignano’s medieval towers dotting the rolling hills. Villa Chianti Sunset’s garden completes its perfection with amazing golden sunsets!
The historic main villa measures 450 m2 (4,844 ft2), it dates back to the 1200s and in the entrance, you can still see the remnants of the original tower.

During the 1800s another apartment was added to the villa measuring 120 m2 (1,292 ft2), it would be easy to connect it to the main villa as there are still doorways present in the current traditional walls.
