6 Bedrooms with Pool – Chianti region
Castello di Ginevra is a beautiful country residence located in the heart of the famous Chianti region, near the ancient town of Castel Fiorentino and just 30 minutes from Florence. Its origins date back to the early years of the 13th century when a powerful Longobard clan from the Elsa Valley – the Conti Alberti – chose Cabbiavoli as the site for their castle, later converted into the elegant villa you can see today. The Conti Alberti family owned the property until the 17th century. Traces of the original 13th-century fort are still discernible in the square brick tower and the walls alongside the villa.
Exterior & garden: A Limonaia was converted into a casual sitting room with six arched windows offering a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside. In the garden there is a XIII Chapel with a crypt dedicated to Saint Bartholomew, restored in XVIII century.
There is also a pool (10 x 5 meters) set on a private terrace, that you can reach from the open stairs in the entrance. One side of the pool is shaded by a loggia with cushioned chaise longue and sun beds. Here there are also a fridge for cold drinks and a cold-water shower under cypress trees.
Living area: On the ground floor of the villa there are 2 large living rooms with fireplaces and a study room.
Dining area: A sumptuous dining room with fireplace and French windows with a spacious and fully equipped kitchen.
Bedrooms & bathrooms: On the ground floor there is 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi. On the first floor there are 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower, 2 twin bedrooms (one with Jacuzzi and shower and one with bathtub and shower), and 1 double bedroom with fireplace, bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower and balcony overlooking the court.
XII century suite tower: A medieval tower alongside the villa (part of the original castle) with a private access. From the living room on the ground floor a staircase takes you up to a double bedroom with its own bathroom with shower. Breathtaking roof terrace.
