The history of Terre di Baccio is rooted in its distant past which is however still visible today thanks to the careful restoration that has preserved the original architectural features of the farmhouse. Documents dating back to the 1500s (the “Mappa dei Capitani di Parte” of the Popolo (or parish) of S. Andrea a Monte Gonzi, Florence State Archives) identify the Farmhouse as belonging to Baccio Zati, a gentleman from an ancient and noble Florentine family. After passing through several owners, at the end of the 20th century, the Farmhouse and its land became part of the Farm of Vitigliano, one of the most important agricultural estates of the time, extending for hundreds of hectares from Greve in Chianti to Panzano.
The Agriturismo Terre di Baccio is a place dedicated to all of those who love the tranquility of the countryside, the wonders of nature and the quality of products coming directly from the land. It is the ideal destination for those looking for a relaxing, authentic holiday full of unforgettable moments. Immersed in the gentleness of the Tuscan landscape, you will discover all the things that make this area unique and inimitable, from the rows of vineyards that run along the hills to the stone farmhouses that guard in their cellars the largest treasure of this region: the wine that has made it famous all over the world.
The current owners have decided to highlight the ancient history of this stone building by giving it new life as an intimate Relais in Chianti, recovering its original structure, and bringing its farm land back to its full productivity. In honor of its first owner they decided to name the complex Terre di Baccio.
The family owner of Terre di Baccio has Florentine, Andalusian and Guatemalan origins. The union of these three different identities is represented in the family’s coat of arms that includes the symbols of every culture (white and green, the colors of Florence’s two historic districts, the three white doves of the Andalusian Garcia Granados family and the five Guatemalan volcanoes). The fusion of these different styles is easily visible in all of the Relais Terre di Baccio’s environs. Here stone, terracotta, old wooden beams and other original materials of the structure coexist with objects, furniture and textiles handmade by Guatemalan craftsmen. This mix of materials, colors and details make each room and apartment an original and unique environment. From this embrace between cultures and the passion for the art of welcoming, springs the Relais Terre di Baccio, set in the gentle Chianti countryside.
