Lamole (at a height of 600 metres above s. l.) lies in the Chianti hills between Florence and Siena, and is a conglomeration of tiny medieval hamlets. All of the buildings have their own particular architecture, which is so simple, yet so natural, that they all seem to belong together. When you take the windy road lined with cypress trees up to Lamole, you pass famous villas, designed by prestigious architects such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo that distinguish themselves for their colours and forms. They don 't give themselves airs when compared with the humbler dwellings around them, and yet they enrich the countryside around them. After the piazza at Lamole it is with some surprise that you come across 'Il Villino'a 19th century villa build by Poggi (the architect who at the end of the 1800s was given the difficult task of redesigning Florence). In the grounds of the villa, which was also designed by Poggi as an example of an italianate garden, you will find the other building, originating in the 18th century, called Le Scuderie. After the recent renovation, carried out with love by the owner, they have created a single, expanded home. In the evening, as you dine on the terraces that overlook the valley, it feels like sitting on the threshing-floor of an old tuscan farmhouse, where the families got together at the end of the day to rest, enjoying the cool air and the colours of the sunset, exchanging the news of the day and tales of the countryside under the clear, starlit sky that still sets you dreaming and expressing wishes to the falling stars on the night of San Lorenzo. In autumn and in the winter the stories continue to be told, but now they are spun in front of the logs burning in the fireplace. At times during the year you will be able to call on the help of the owner who will be living in a separate part of Il Villino. On request she will be available to organize lessons in the italian language, cooking and yoga lessons and wine tasting. Heating is only available in Le Scuderie. The pool is shared if the Le Scuderie and Villino are rented separately.
