The Volognano Castle is located in the heart of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini area, just 16 km from Florence and at an altitude of about 400 meters, surrounded by 200 hectares of vineyards and olive groves that offer a breathtaking view. Built in a dominant position overlooking the surrounding territories, the Castle is surrounded by the medieval village that developed on its margins, including a small church where the Holy Mass of the Catholic rite is still celebrated on Sundays. This church houses two works attributed to the Rosso Fiorentino school dating back to the late 14th century.
The Volognano Castle includes 700 square meters of apartments on three floors: on the ground floor the kitchen, the dining room, two large living rooms and a bathroom; on the first floor a double suite with private bathroom and two double rooms with shared bathroom; on the second floor a second suite with private bathroom, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a shared bathroom, a studio and a laundry; on the third floor there is a relaxation area with billiards/pool table and satellite TV.
The outdoor spaces enrich the structure of a striking 6×12 m swimming pool partly inside the lemon house, provided with changing room and bathroom for guests in the pool. Also included outdoors is an Italian garden, as well as premises obtained from the ancient cellars of the Castle and suitable for organising events.
Several services are available to guests.
Breakfast, lunch and/or dinner with a personal chef
To make your stay even more special you can ask for a personal chef, a cook at your disposal for the preparation of breakfasts, brunches, lunches or dinners. The chef will propose different menu options in order to meet the tastes of all the guests.
The guests of the Castle can request a laundry service or dry cleaning of their most precious or delicate items.
It is possible to organise visits to museums, purchase event tickets, get tips on local attractions to see and routes to explore, get advice and support for restaurant reservations or other activities outside the Castle.
Private transfers can be arranged to and from the airport, the train station or the centre of Florence, as well as any other desired location.
A professional babysitting service is available on request to ensure that children and their parents can fully enjoy their stay at Volognano.
Extra domestic help and local food shopping with delivery
It is possible to have extra hours of domestic work over the already planned cleaning. There is also the possibility to comfortably receive at the Castle the local food shopping. Both services have been designed especially for guests who occupy the entire property or spend a longer period at the Castle.
