The farm house Mezzano is in the heart of Chianti, 30 minutes by car from the centre of Florence, 20 minutes from Greve in Chianti and under 1 hour by car from Siena.
It’s at an altitude of 450m, providing a stunning view on the valley below. The surrounding area has numerous tracks for walking and mountain-biking leading to historic churches, houses and to an old castle. The house has its own history as a custom-house in the seventeenth century.
The main products of the farm are olive oil and honey. More than a thousand olive trees have been planted in the property over a century. A forest of chestnuts, cherry trees and oaks takes up the remainder of the land. The wood is home to bees and a rich variety of wild flora and fauna. Our products have no pesticides or fertilisers; we also have occasionally jam, mushrooms sauce and truffles sauce found locally.
The water come from a spring few minutes far from the house: is a very good water!
The house has been restored and is now comprises a main building with 6 apartments.
