Tuscany is of course from generations to generation a welcoming and valuable region, its beauty never changed making it a little paradise on earth. On the agritourism level “Dievole” is a place with a deep identity, a domain producing oil and wine but where you can also spent your holidays at the residence. The Chef of the restaurant will fill you with the delights of the region.

Dievole is a domain of about 600 hectares in the Chianti Classico territory located at about 12 km of Siena. Where time moves at two speeds: one slow, perceived in silence and read in the trees surrounding the hamlet and one that’s vibrant and active. In fact, behind the clear geometry of the vineyards and the imperturbable calm that surrounds olive trees: it’s a constant dialogue between man and nature. Respect is its philosophy of the house as well for history past, but also for the more recent one, for the territory – the land, the vines, the olive trees – and especially for all the men and women who work at Dievole with enthusiasm and dedication.

It is in the historical cellars of the domain that the company organises evocative tastings: at the discoveries of Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Santo… In a landscape like Tuscany that is dotted with olive trees, extra virgin olive oil is also part of the company’s values, and Dievole has charged oleologist Marco Scanu to develop its production. The perfection to a 360° view at Dievole is: hills, farmhouses, cypress trees and vineyards, in the best Tuscan tradition translated to beauty,craftsmanship and tradition. A whole world to be discovered…

The Villa was a former home of the Sienese nobility and overlooks the valley for breathtaking views. Dievole is die01welcoming you for relax and romantic journey in a peaceful nest.  The complex is literally surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and is integrated into the wine making process. So that the Villa, the Cantina and the Dievole offices become a small village with their ceramic tiles, stone windowsills and old style facade, perfectly situated in the Tuscan landscape. The residence includes the historic Villa, a few farmhouses, the stable (now the breakfast room), a lounge bar and an Enoteca with its cellar door. In total, the Villa offers 27 suites and double rooms spread over five sites, divided between the villa and four completely restored farmhouses. Life at the Villa Dievole spent like in a dream and most of the time out in the open air: every week a barbecue evening is organised, but you can also go to the restaurant of the property. Where the Chef Monica Filipinska is inspired by the surrounding environment and therefore by harmony, nature and freshness. She prepare with passion traditional Tuscan recipes with ingredients of local producers and from the domain. If you will be thrilled by her kitchen, Monica doesn’t keep her recipes so long secret and you can follow one of her mini Tuscan cooking classes. To go straight from theory to practice and be part of this true Dievole Renaissance painting.
