Located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti region, Casa Matteo is an outstanding villa with stunning views over characteristic olive groves, vineyards, forests and country estates. This spacious independent country house, originally a small monastery, has five bedrooms with five en suite bathrooms and is located only 2 km from Mercatale Val di Pesa and 18 km from Florence. The annex (a former hayloft) has also been attentively restored with one bedroom and one bathroom and is rented with the main villa.

Check availability

Casa Matteo is an excellent setting for a gathering of friends or family.  The panoramic hilltop location is exclusive and private while still offering good access to Florence located just 15 minutes to the north.  The charming Chianti hill towns are also within easy striking distance. Siena is 50 minutes away and Lucca is approximately one hour’s drive.  The villa is spacious and has been tastefully and authentically restored.  The grounds are impressive and interspersed with olive groves planted throughout the property.  The large swimming pool with separate circular Jacuzzi (not a hot tub) and furnished stone solarium is especially remarkable.

Guests arrive at Casa Matteo by way of a typical Italian gravel country road (1200 meters) that winds through vineyards and olive groves.  The villa is about 1000 years old, dating back to its construction in the medieval period.  It evolved from a monastery to a private residence in the following century and was completely restored in 2006.  The exterior photos show this property’s splendid appearance with images of the 10,000 square meters of land that is totally enclosed. 

The handsome manicured lawn is bordered with attractive rose bushes and olive trees.  The covered outdoor stone patio is ideal for al fresco dining and includes a barbecue, a long table and comfortable chairs.  The swimming pool (15m x 7.5m) is near the patio and is furnished with sun loungers, chairs, tables and umbrellas. Also located near the pool is a pleasant changing room with bathroom and shower and a well equipped fitness room. Mountain bikes are available and included in the price.

Constructed of beautiful terracotta tiles and beamed ceilings, Casa Matteo is 530 square meters in size and spans two floors.

Upon request and for an extra fee are one double sofa bed in the villa and one double sofa bed in the annex. This brings the total capacity of the property to sixteen guests. The villa and annex must be rented together.
