Greve in Chianti (Tuscany)

Greve in Chianti is a town in the province of Florence, Tuscany. Sitting in the Val di Greve, it is named for the small, fast-flowing river that runs through it, is the principal town in the Chianti wine district which stretches south of Florence to just north of Siena. Until recently it has been a quiet, almost bucolic town because it was, and still is, well off the main roads. Even in ancient days Greve was not isolated because it was well-connected by secondary roads to the Via Volterrana and via Francigena. With the enlargement of the Chianti wine district in 1932, Greve suddenly found itself in a noble wine area. The Chianti region supports a variety of agricultural activities, most especially the growing of the grapes that go into the world-famous Chianti and "Super Tuscan" wines. Olive oil production is another staple of the local economy.

What others are saying about Tuscany

We have bought a house in Tuscany, rented an apartment to move into while we work on the house, and will be driving over at the beginning of November with our dogs to start our new life.

We have bought a house in Tuscany and it was a complete renovation job.

It is not yet habitable and we are paying Enel bills every two months.

it will be a year at least before we can move in but they now want to meet as the house is empty.

Can they charge more?
