Description

Castello di Montegonzi is a delighful hamlet of houses built around a fortified castle dating back to the twelfth century which gave origin to the charming little town of Greve in Chianti.
The dominant position of the castle made it strategically important for controlling communication between Florence and Siena. In 1629 the castle was partially destroyed by the Ghibellini's guild of Siena who were fighting against the florentine Guelfi's guild.
Montegonzi is situated in quiet and panoramic location, nestling deep amidst vineyards and olive groves and offering beautifiul extensive views over the surronding landscape of Chiantishire. This hamlet has been recently and skilfully restored preserving its architectural origin features and using ancient stones and materials. During the restoration of the castle, great care has been taken, where possible, in recreating the original and all the external features have been designed to reproduce ad closely as possible the original ones, always using the original stoneworks taken from the old fortress, in order to recreate the atmosphere of the past.
