Parker Villas Exclusive - A private pocket listing available nowhere else

During the day, the views from this heavenly, hill top perch span across endless miles of magnificent Chianti Classico landscapes. On clear summer nights, when stars roam the Tuscan sky, the sparkle from Stella del Chianti is easily mistaken for a new constellation.

Stella del Chianti is found on an olive growing estate between Florence and Siena with postcard perfect vistas. It is one of three separate 15th-century, stone farmhouses all owned by the same family. Each home faces its own direction with its own private furnished patio and spacious garden.

The large swimming pool is perfectly positioned to take in the far reaching views over Chianti and is made available for private use by Parker rental guests. The remaining two homes are occupied by the owners as their vacation getaways - when they decide to escape from the bustle of Italian city life to the tranquil Tuscan countryside. When in residence, the estate's matriarch occupies the farmhouse just behind Stella, and her daughter's family uses the third home, 40 yards away. They do not use the swimming pool.

In keeping with tradition, the restoration exposed the original stone walls, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and a large open fireplace. The simple country furnishings are comfortable, and with the exception of the picture window in the dining room, all the windows are screened. The original 15th century, wood burning oven is still intact and can be used under the skillful direction of a pizzaiolo if a pizza night is ordered at the time of booking.

For a smaller group, there is a price for up to 4 guests occupying two bedrooms and two bathrooms. At the time of booking, guests advise which bedrooms they would like to use and the others are closed.

For the wine aficionado, Parker Villas can arrange for a day of wine tasting at nearby wineries in Radda in Chianti, within a short 15 minute drive. Both establishments produce highly rated, DOCG Chianti Classico and Riserva labels and a wine tasting lunch may be added to the day's itinerary.

Situated just off of the SS222, Chianti's renowned scenic wine route, the last wooded mile of the approach is unpaved and bumpy - smaller cars are suggested for better handling. Two country restaurants are within a few minutes by car. Castellina in Chianti, with restaurants, cafes, wine shops and a supermarket is a 10 minute drive; Radda in Chianti or Panzano with a Sunday morning market: 20; Monteriggioni: 25; Siena or Greve in Chianti: 30; San Gimignano or Florence: 45; Volterra or Arezzo: 70; Montepulciano, Cortona or Lucca: 90; Assisi or Pisa: 2 hours; Cinque Terre: 3 hours.

A tourist tax collected by the town is paid separately on the first seven nights. Children under age 14 are exempt.
