Deep in the Chianti Rufina Area, between vineyards and olive groves
Fattoria di Basciano is a truly historic property situated in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area. Its main structure was once an ancient guard tower and dates back to the 13th century. We have recently restored the historic site for our “agriturismo” program. This beautiful property overlooks the rolling tuscan countryside and is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees.
Our guests can enjoy the breathtaking view from anywhere on the ground or while swimming in a newly built pool designed to enhance the surrounding landscape.
