In front of the villa, is a paved terrace which leads up to the main entrance. There is a further covered terrace outside the kitchen, furnished for dining outdoors while enjoying the beautiful views. All the terraces have railings but because of the different levels, young children would have to be watched carefully.
The layout of the villa interiors date back to the 1700s, but were restored in 1992.

Originally a medieval castle with fortified tower, Convertoie sits on a hilltop, near Greve in Chianti in the heart of Chianti region. The location, dating back to Etruscan times, is very interesting historically, as traces of the original Etruscan cobbled road which led from the Lucumonia of Volterra to that of Fiesole, have been uncovered at the base of the structure. The property was also later used as a base for a Roman garrison, and later still was damaged by the Sienese army during its war with Florence in 1530. Its defensive role ended in 1550 when part of the tower was transformed into a church. It now sits peacefully, dominating the surrounding countryside and with wonderful views. What was probably once the original internal courtyard is now a car parking space.
