Villa Eleanora Is in the very heart of Chianti on Fiorentine Hills, between San Casciano and Montespertoli far only 20 Km from Florence.
The villa, constructed at the end of 1800 has been part of the Nannelli family for about a century. It has been maintained in its original style with regards to the bedrooms and the layout of the sitting rooms and the kitchen. The bathrooms have been completely refurbished and an independent central heating system has been fitted. The villa looks onto an age-old park reserve, which is delightfully spacious, yet private, with at the same time several panoramic view-points onto the countryside.

On the ground floor, a spacious kitchen has been fitted with an electric oven and has an open fireplace, beyond which there is a separate larder room. A spacious dining room, which also has a grand piano, adjoins another room which has a wide open fireplace, then there is a sitting room with a billiard table.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms: the large master bedroom with four-poster double bed, a second large double bedded room, a twin room and a single/cot room. A bathroom, a shower room and a cloakroom (which opens onto a lovely little balcony - a 'loo with a view'!), and two further bathrooms with bath complete the accommodation. Wonderfully tall ceilings, an interesting assemblage of antique furnishings and original ceiling frescos in two of the bedrooms give Villa Eleanora a beguilingly traditional feel.

The park is around 6000 sq. m. and has direct access to the swimming pool , 18m x 9m, 1.2-2.0m deep, open beginning May- mid October, is shared with the adjacent Tortori apartments, although the villa has private access to the pool.
