Forra in Chianti - 6 Bedrooms

Forra in Chianti - 6 Bedrooms

Italy remains one of the most desirable destinations in Europe.  Villas make vacationing there more economical and allow a true Taste of Italy, living as a local.  Shopping in the markets, eating in local restaurants and meeting the residents of your village will make lasting impressions and perhaps even friends.  Villas are available in all shapes and sizes throughout Italy for parties as small as 1 looking for peace and quiet up to 20+ for a family or friends reunion.

Below is the summer/fall event calendar for Chianti, one of the most requested areas in Italy.  For villa pricing and choices, contact me.  Rates are as much as 25% off for some properties.
