MORE INFO:

The wine estate on which Villa Massimiliano is situated on - consists of the Villa itself, built in the early 18th century by Massimiliano Soldani Benzi, and four other surrounding large farmhouses, each of which is completely independent and can accommodate from 4 to 10 people.

The charm of the estate is tied to its location, right in the center of Tuscany between Arezzo, Florence and Siena and placed on the south-eastern borders of Chianti. A landscapes of typical rolling Tuscan hills will welcome you covered with olive groves, vineyards and woods. Three small private lakes at short walking distance add to the charm of this property!

The winery is dominated by the stone watchtower of Galatrona, proud legacy of an important medieval castle known at least since 963 . Within the estate, facing Villa Massimiliano, stands the ancient Romanesque church of San Giovanni a Galatrona which holds precious renaissance works from the Della Robbia family.
