This is the landmark of Chianti area
A fascinating, impressive and varied landscape, rich in contrasts: the lush green of chestnut trees, the silver of the olive groves, the bright and clear colours of the individual, somewhat remote old stone houses are contrasting with the straight green lines of the vineyards.
Distinctive vineyards and olive groves – the landmark of the Chianti area.
Set in this spectacular landscape lies the estate L’Ottavo. Rural stone buildings, preserved in the original style of Tuscany, have been converted by the Tramonti family to individual, self-contained apartments, adapted to suit the modern, discerning tourist, but without losing the original look and character of the buildings.
The estate L’Ottavo is situated in Lucolena, part of the municipality of Greve in Chianti, at an altitude of 400m. Ideal for those who want to experience nature, crave for tranquillity, for those who want to spend the day between a dip in the pool, a sunbath on the lawn or terrace, a walk in the surrounding forests, or a casual stroll through one of the many antique villages – to discover the many traces of the history and art of Tuscany.
L’Ottavo lies in the midst of the golden cultural triangle of Florence (35km), Siena (40km) and Arezzo (40km). Because of this ideal situation you cannot only reach those art centres quickly and easily, but also many other very attractive towns in Tuscany, like San Gimignano, Volterra, Lucca, Pisa, etc.
