Marangole is a gem of rural elegance set in the heart of the Chianti hills at 500 m above sea level, guarded by immense garrisons of vines that stretch endlessly and make up the classical dreamy Tuscan landscapes that are famous throughout the world. This completely renovated, prestigious 18th century residence has six elegant bedrooms, all with air-conditioning and private bathroom, as well as an impressive living area with large living rooms facing out onto a splendid panoramic terrace. The crowning glory is the fantastic pool, an inviting place for relaxing and contemplating this exclusive belvedere. Marangole stands in an independant position within the prestigious frame of the Castello di Albole estate which extends for 137 hectares of fertile land which, every year, produces excellent extra-virgin olive oil and a choice nectar exported throughout the world and which can be tasted directly in the historic cellars of the beautiful medieval castle which dominates the estate and which once belonged to the most noble Tuscan families and is situated about 1 km from the property. We are 4 km from the famous borgo of Radda in Chianti (where you can find shops for everyday needs, restaurants and bars) while the neighbouring territory offers an incomparable variety of places to explore: Volpaia, Panzano, Gaiole and Greve with their breathtaking picture-postcard views and unique range of artistic, historical and eno-gastronomical offers. Thanks to the beautiful panoramic roads, daily trips will take you to Siena, Florence, San Gimignano or Volterra. NB. A short distance from the house live the helpful and friendly caretakers who look after the park and pool which is for the exclusive use of the guests.

A few paces from the parking area, which is reached along a short unpaved driveway from the entrance gate, is a splendid panoramic terrace paved in terracotta which leads to the portico with the dining area set conveniently in front of the entrances to the house, to the pergola in a strategic panoramic position and to the steps leading to the pool area which is situated at a lower level.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The pool is situated in a secluded part of the garden, with a fascinating view over the rows of vines that surround the property, in the centre of a platform paved in terracotta and is reached from the terrace in front of the house down a ramp of steps.
