Golf Information: the Villa is only 5 minutes drive from the Golf Club Ugolino.
It was constructed in the Chianti hills in 1933 and was designed by British architects Blandford and Gannon who had also designed the course at Monza near Milan. It exploits at best the natural characteristics of the Tuscan landscape: the cypress and olive trees, the slopes that curve and follow the magnificent scenery, the small greens which are often very well-defended. Ugolino is largely synonymous with Italian golfing history.
