Situated at a height of about 300 mt "La Presura" extends for 35 hectares between Florence and Greve in Chianti. It's the first farm to open its "gates" on the smiling hills of "Chianti Classico". The old nucleus of habitation was constructed in the XVI century, but it was only in 1849, with the extension of the farm house and the construction of the villa, that the Bucciolini family started their agricultural activity, which they continue to do today.
The name Presura is derived from a plant very similar to the thistle, once very common in the area, which the sheperds used for curdeling milk and producing pecorino cheese, much more easily digested than cheese produced with animal curdeling.
The farm house offers its clients 8 apartments delicately restored respecting the original typical tuscan farmhouse.
While the apartments mantain the characteristics of the old farmhouse intact, they are designed with every type of comfort: Air condition, wireless, Satellite TV, Central ventilation system, Kitchen with fridge, Hair dryer, Insect screen, Independent heating system.
The Presura farmhouse offers its clients a wonderful swimming pool of 6 meters by 14 meters, from which, during a relaxing bath, you can appreciate the wonderful view of the hills envied by all. Comfortable semicircle steps allow you to submerge gradually into the pool until a maximum depth of 1,5 metres, which is very handy for old people and children.
During the summer season we occasionally organize typical tuscan dinner. Products like vegetables, fruit, eggs, and chickens all come from the farm. The menù is left inside the apartment so that you can confirm your presence the day before, allowing us to cook your meal for you there and then.
In the summer time we lay the tables in the garden of the villa, while when the weather doesn't allow this the dinners are served in the impressive main hall inside the master house.
In your free time you may take long walks in the wonderful woods of the farm or dedicate yourself to fishing carp and perch in the private lake in the middle of the pine forest. Four trekking trail pass through our olive grove, our vineyard and our wood. They are also suitable for ski walking. You can get the maps of the trekking trail in the reception.
Two enclosed hectares surround the private lake of the farm, in which, as well as fishing, you may come in close contact with the animals living there. Mute ducks, wild ducks, swans, and goats live in this oasis in total freedom and at ease with the presence of our guests who often spend part of their free time with them. In the eight hectares of wood you can see many of the species of tree typical of our central tuscan areas: Pine, Cypresse, Juniper, together with oak, broom and many other species of trees.
