On the hills around Greve in Chianti, among the vineyards where Cabreo is produced, a new Charming Relais by Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute is born: Pietra del Cabreo.
Ready to welcome those who want to immerse themselves in the Tuscan countryside and experience the most authentic traditions of these lands, the new resort was officially inaugurated on 14th May.
The ancient rural settlement has been brought back to life while maintaining continuity with the surrounding area.
Thanks to its 11 rooms and suites, perfect in every detail and enriched with unique and tastefully selected artworks and decorations, Pietra del Cabreo transmits a genuine “Tuscan way of life” made of sober elegance.
For its realisation, the best Km 0 local workers were used, heirs of the great Florentine tradition of arts and crafts and historical partners of Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute.
Excellent materials have also been used, respecting the original construction methods.
Thanks to this synergy of craftsmen and materials, an authentic “good retreat” of wild beauty has been created.
The Relais, one of a kind, has been furnished by carefully choosing furniture that could give continuity and modernity to a rooted and ancient tradition: refined fabrics, natural linen that blends with the greenery of the countryside, textiles and sofas with warm colours, cotto dell’Impruneta floors, oak wood, wrought iron, paintings found in the antique markets, marble tops.
All this to make this place magical, elegant and sober, but at the same time capable of releasing a strong energy.
The spaces outside Pietra del Cabreo are perfectly integrated into the landscape allowing the eye to sweep up to Florence, furthermore they enjoy large common areas and a splendid swimming pool next to the vineyards characterised by a breathtaking view.
The gardens are embellished by imposing native trees, field maples, cypresses, ash trees, and a magnificent rose garden with flowers and plants that evoke the warm nuances of the interiors giving glimpses of the Tuscan landscapes.
Pietra del Cabreo, in addition to the abundant buffet breakfast, offers the possibility to dine on the splendid terrace enjoying traditional Tuscan dishes proposed in a modern way.
Guests also have access to a beautiful private tennis court in the heart of the countryside.
The two Charming Relais Borgo del Cabreo and Pietra del Cabreo, pay tribute to the Supertuscan wines made on these hills by Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute, La Pietra Chardonnay Toscana IGT and Cabreo il Borgo Toscana IGT, creating an indissoluble link between wine production and hospitality.
Two unique places, distinguished by buildings entirely made of stone, as similar as they are different, where to experience the history and charm of Tuscany and discover the excellence of its wine production areas while sipping the best wines of Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute.
Borgo del Cabreo Charming Relais, not far away and surrounded by Tenute del Cabreo, is already known and appreciated by international customers. Equipped with 11 comfortable rooms and suite, in a few days it will inaugurate its fifth season, accompanied by its “sister” Pietra del Cabreo
which will reveal its exuberant beauty from the end of June, when it will open to its guests.
The link between hospitality and winemaking is an important element of continuity of the two Cabreo’s Relais, both because the structures are surrounded by vineyards, and for the possibility offered to guests to make interesting personalised wine tasting itineraries in the Historic Cellar of Tenuta di Nozzole.
In addition to wine tastings, both Cabreo’s Relais are an ideal starting point for walks, bike or car trips to discover Tuscan nature and culture.
Renowned places all over the world such as Greve in Chianti, Montefioralle, the numerous Romanesque churches scattered in the countryside, the beautiful Badia di Passignano, Radda in Chianti and the well-known San Gimignano, are easily reachable with daily tour.
