Benvenuti in Toscana

Greve in Chianti, Florence - Tuscany - Italy




At 300 mt above sea level, "La Presura" farm stretches over 35 hectares of land mid-way between Florence and Greve in Chianti. "La Presura" was the first farm holding to open its gates on the sweet hills of the Chianti Classic wine producing area. The old dwelling dates back to the 16th century, but it was only in 1849, with the extension of the farm and the costruction of the villa, that the Bucciolini family started their agricultural business, which is thriving, today. The name Presura derives from a plant, very similar to the thistle, which was very common in this area. It was used by shepherds to coagulate milk and produce pecorino (sheep milk) cheese. It was found to be more digestible than the pecorino cheese produced using animal rennet. From Spring 1999, the old barn and hay loft have been renovated and converted into apartments for Agriturism.
Guest will find six beautifully restored apartments in the tipycal Tuscany country style able to accommodate 2,3 or 5 people. Each apartment has its own bathroom, with shower, fully equipped kitchen and 2,3 or 5 beds plus individual central heating and every type of comfort for your stay in Tuscany.

Guests can escape from the heat of the day and relax around our large private swimming pool.At less than 1km you can play golf over the famous links of the "Ugolino Golf Club"
During your free time you might like to walk through the splendid woods belonging to the farmstead, or fish for carp and perch in the private lake immersed among the pine trees.

The farm has 6 hectares of Chianti Classic vineyards and because of its excellent position and earth type produces high quality grapes. The extra-virgin olive oil produced over 7 hectares of olive grove has a low acidity level because the olives are hand collected and cold pressed immediately.The "fruity" taste is characterised by the quality of the olive trees such as "Frantoio", "Morellino", "Leccino"
