Area Information

Greve in Chianti is often considered the entrance gate into the Chianti region since it is the first major town you reach as you head south of Florence toward Siena. It is located along the SR222 provincial road, locally known as the Chiantigiana road, at about 30 km south of Florence and 40 km north of Siena.

We recommend visiting Greve for various reasons. It is a small town, not lying at the top of a hill but its interestingly shaped main square is the perfect location from which to wander around, enjoy an espresso, gelato cone or wine glass on a stop here on your trip through Chianti. What is there to see in Greve? Let's start from its history to understand what we see today.

Greve's history is connected to the beautiful Castle of Montefioralle located above the town - Greve was the castle's marketplace starting in the 13th century). Greve's strategic position at the crossroads of three important pilgrimage roads - the Chiantigiana road, the road to Valdarno and the road to Val di Pesa - favored its economic growth. At the beginning of the 1500s, the particularly shaped square was already there and was later described by the Grand Duke Leopold I as "a beautiful square where every Saturday a big market of livestock and foodstuff takes place". That market is still taking place every Saturday even today!

The Main Square

Piazza Matteotti is the main piazza in Greve and even if it isn't "square", it is still the focal point of the town. A small town with a few museums and monuments to visit, Greve still offers a chance to enjoy a relaxing walk in and around the main square as well as a supermarket (Coop along the SS222 that cross the town) for anyone staying in an apartment in the surroundings. Furthermore, it's very lively with regular events, including food and wine festivals where music and markets intermingle all year round even if they are concentrated in the summer and early fall. We suggest you stop at the tourist information office near the city hall on the main square to ask for an events calendar for Greve and the area.

Every Saturday morning the weekly market still takes place on this same square. What makes the square particular, apart from its strange shape, is the portico on three sides of the square. The portico continues to serve as the frame for artisan shops, workshops and restaurants selling local products.

Some of these shops are famous so make sure to stop by: one of these is the Antica Macelleria Falorni, a Tuscan butcher shop that has been in the same spot since 1729, and another is the Bottega dell'Artigianato, a shop specialized in hand-woven baskets and products made in olive wood. Also located on the square is the Palazzo del Comune, the city hall built in neo-Renaissance style on the site of the ancient Renaissance building. In the square near city hall is the large statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano, famous explorer that discovered the Hudson Bay in New York and who was born just a few kilometers to the north of Greve. (You'll see the Castello da Verrazzano along the Chiantigiana road before reaching Greve if you're headed south from Florence - great stop for wine tastings!)

Don't Miss Montefioralle: make sure to visit Montefioralle, the small fortified village located on a hill above Greve less than a mile away from Greve's main square. Here the famous explorer Amerigo Vespucci was born; the ancestral home is located along the main street, its only distinguishing mark is the family's coat of arms with a wasp above its doorway - see if you can find it!


Vehicles


Due to the fact that many properties in this area can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways, we advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us at the time of booking if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at a property in this area.

Swimming

If your rental period is outside the period May 15th to September 30dt, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.

Heating

Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity

Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

Internet Connection

Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
