Hotel Villa Sangiovese is a family-friendly hotel in the Chianti Classico area of Tuscany, situated on the main piazza of Panzano in Chianti, with views of Panzano and the Chianti countryside. The main doors open onto the charming little piazza of Panzano while the breakfast terrace, gardens and swimming pool have completely rustic panoramic views of the upper part of Panzano and the beautiful Chianti countryside.
Hotel Villa Sangiovese has been under Swiss ownership and management for decades and is famous for the bistecca alla fiorentina served in its restaurant (which is open to the public as well as to hotel guests, by the way). When the weather is warm, meals, including breakfast, are served on the shaded terrace which looks out from behind the hotel towards the upper part of Panzano.
The hotel has a secluded swimming pool situated in an extensive flower garden. There’s no better destination after a hard day of sightseeing than this pool!
Panzano itself is an excellent base for exploring Chianti and most of central Tuscany, being located as it is halfway between Florence and Sienna. Panzano is a Tuscan hilltown with a good range of restaurants and there is a Coop supermarket in nearby Greve in Chianti (10 minutes by car). Buses run between Panzano and Florence.
