The Advantages of Renting a Villa in the Chianti

Chianti is situated between Florence and Siena, Italy and is comprised mainly of olive groves and vineyards. It is a region that is world renowned for its wines and olive oil and even tops the Italian wine list. It is believed the name Chianti originated from the Latin "Clangor" which means, "sound of the trumpet". Others believe is was named after Etruscan families who inhabited the region long ago.

A villa in Chianti allows you to stay among the people who are themselves rich in the history of Chianti. Who knows a region's history better than the locals? During your stay, you may hear about a legend in which an argument took place between two horsemen. They argued over who was the fastest. To settle this dispute, a competition took place to prove once and for all who was fastest. Legend has it that one horsemen left from Florence and the other left from Siena. They were to meet at a point which would signify where their respective territorial boundary would be. The horsemen were to leave after the first call of a rooster. The Florentines starved their rooster which resulted in the rooster calling out much earlier than dawn, giving their horsemen an advantage because he departed earlier than his rival. The end result was of course that their horseman conquered more land. The rooster became the emblem of the Chianti. If you rent a Chianti Tuscany Villa, you may even hear the locals speak of a place called Croce Fiorentina. This is where the two horsemen met.
