Capanno Sotto is surrounded by some tall and strong cypress trees. At the terrace is a pleasant smell of evocative oregano that grows wild. This semi-detached, stone-built cottage at ground level is situated opposite the back of the grand villa. The terrace is furnished with a dining table, two chairs, two deck chairs and a garden parasol. A perfect place for a couple or two friends to enjoy the Tuscan lifestyle. The town Greve in Chianti is only a walk - 2 km - from the villa.
Nested between the iconic cypress trees

Why come to Villa Prono?
Sotto is for lovers of nature and wine as we produce our own Chianti Classico at the villa. It is possible to visit the vineyards and the wine cellar. You may indeed enjoy the best wine at the top of the valley of Greve in Chianti, only a short drive from Florence and Siena. We live at 370 metres altitude. Perfect wine position!
During summer you will enjoy the swimming pool as much as we do. It has a top position among our organic olive trees with a lot of space to get a nice suntan. It can be warm during summer but with a little help from the cooling fan and a dip in the pool we survive. After all we don't need weeks of rain during high season!!
The villa has a rustic style with respect for the original materials of the area. A lot of terracotta floors and wooden beam at the ceiling. The villa has a loooong story so make sure you want to hear it if you ask….
The villa and the surroundings are large and we have other six houses where guests come and enjoy the countryside. We love to divide this peaceful place in the hills of Chianti. We love the silence and the incredible bird song in the evening. And to watch the stars in the nighttime. The trees. The garden is pretty nice too, although somewhat rural like a classic Mediterranean garden. It is definitely a place to relax and unwind. And walk.
Facilities for our guests:
Shared swimming pool with furniture, shared barbecue in the garden, washing machine and ironing in separate room, free parking, we make reservations for restaurants and taxi, direct sales of wine, visit to wine cellar and vineyards. Approach road is paved in good conditions. Walking path between the vineyards to Greve in Chianti.
WIFI - it is good and works very well most of the time but not supergood. So if you want to download films and other heavy files please do it before leaving home because here you'll only have super fast connection to nature, wine and the famous Italian slow lifestyle.
We live Andrea - my husband - and me - Henriette - at the villa. We have children but they live in different countries. Apart from Italian Andrea speaks Dutch and English. I am Danish and speak English and German. We are easy going and love to talk about everything and of course - about wine. Sometimes I organise happy wine hour and mindfulness wine tasting for our guests. Andrea is more a wine-cellar-kind-of-guy!
We have had guests at villa for over 25 years!!! Still can't believe it...I am not getting older! Our experience though is, that the villa is a perfect place for guests who love and appreciate a rustic winery/villa in search for relax and unwind and who have a taste of real slow Chianti life.
From Greve there are regular buses to and from Florence and the journey takes about an hour. Unfortunately there is not a good public transport network in Chianti. We recommend that you come by car so that you can reach all the lovely, small towns around Chianti.
The local authority of Greve in Chianti levies a tax on non-residents staying overnight in the municipality (imposta di soggiorno). The cost is €1,5 per person (over 14 years old) per night for a maximum of seven nights. This tax needs to be paid in cash upon handling the house key at your arrival.
