The area surrounding the Serristori Country Residence is considered the very heart of the Chianti region, an area rich in history and tradition, nestled between the beautiful hills that divide the two unique cities of Florence and Siena.

Let’s explore the area better, and its history that has made it one of the number one destinations for anyone who enjoys a holiday immersed in the countryside, in a Chianti residence such as Serristori Country.

The name of Chianti identifies the hills between the provinces of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, famous throughout the world for the production of one of the most well-known and appreciated wines in the world.

Historically speaking, in 1384 the Republic of Florence created a political-military alliance to defend this territory that became known as the League of Chianti, adopting a black rooster (“Gallo Nero” in Italian) on a gold background as its emblem. The Chianti region is rich in nature and history, with medieval castles, churches and abbeys.

The two cities that delimit the area, Siena and Florence, are certainly two of the most characteristic and renowned in the world, with a long history that makes a visit to these places absolutely unmissable.

A visit to the Chianti region means immersing yourself in the Tuscan countryside, in a land rich in tradition, a land that produces, among other things, the wine and olive oil that epitomise Italian food and wine culture.

The area of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is rich in vineyards and wineries open to the public where one can learn the secrets of one of the most famous wines in the world, which takes its name from the area: Chianti.

Setting out from Serristori Country Residence, in 20 minutes you can reach Florence, with its Renaissance works and so much more (Florence Cathedral, the Basilica of Santa Croce, the San Marco Convent, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, Ponte Vecchio, Giotto's Campanile, Palazzo Vecchio, Michelangelo’s David, etc.).

Siena is only 40 km from our residence in Chianti (Piazza del Campo and the famous Palio, the Cathedral, the Torre del Mangia).

Other important sites we should mention in the Chianti area and easily accessible from our residence are San Gimignano with its 72 towers, a Unesco World Heritage site, Volterra, and Pienza (the city of Pope Pius II, and the natural and historical features of the Val d 'Orcia).
