CHRISTMAS IN CHIANTI

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for two weeks over the Christmas holidays and had a delightful time. The house itself is quite grand, yet with the rustic charm of high beamed ceilings, stone floors, french windows, big fireplace. All the bedrooms are beautful. The house was well heated; we were very comfortable. On some evenings, we chose to light the fireplace and there were ample logs for our use.

We had a cooking lesson in the kitchen as well as Christmas dinner in a local restaurant -- all arranged by the property manager, who promptly responded to all requests. Everyone associated with this property was kind, helpful, efficient.

But best of all was the Chianti region in the holiday season with the church bells ringing, the streets lit up with festive lights, the pappardelle with wild boar, the friendliness of the locals, the few tourists, the great shopping, the wine. We especially enjoyed visiting our own nearest small town of Castellina. And also Pienza, Certaldo, and the Querciabella winery near Greve.

ANOTHER PERFECT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at this beautiful house and it gets better every time!
The house is very comfortable and is decorated in a beautiful traditional Tuscan style. It is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need and the kitchen is a cook's paradise! The view from the garden and from the bedrooms is breathtaking and the photos do not do it justice at all. We spent many evenings just sitting on one of the many outdoor seating areas having a glass of Chianti and staring at the stunning scenery. The grounds surrounding the house are equally beautiful with fig and olive trees and a great vegetable patch too. The pool is enormous with amazing views and although shared by 8 houses never felt too crowded and we were often the only ones in it. The tennis court is also great.

The location is excellent - with the lovely medieval village of Castellina only 10-15 minutes away and the beautiful hilltop towns of Siena and Monteriggioni close by too. We have visited in the summer and autumn months and loved it equally! There is so much to see and do in the area or you can simply relax with amazing food and wine and soak up the very special atmosphere.

Thank you so much for another perfect stay - we can't wait to come back!

A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION AND GREAT HOME

  • 4 of 5
What a special place - great location and views! The photos do not do this home justice - the views are beyond beautiful, you can see for miles over the countryside and on a sunny morning you can see the towers of San Gimignano! The bedrooms are very spacious, with clean linens, and each bathroom is very modern and super clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook everything from a quick breakfast to a full dinner for 5. We loved the dining room - although we didnt get to use it very often because we preferred sitting outside at one of the many outdoor tables with their spectacular views. We were concerned by earlier comments about previous "neighbors", but the families in neighboring villas were all exceptionally friendly, always ready to share advice about their favorite hill towns, restaurants, etc. Great restaurants and a Coop grocery about 10-15 minutes away in Castellina in Chianti and also Monteriggioni. Swimming pool is beautiful and absolutely huge, and it was fun having a tennis court on site!

VILLA IN CHIANTI REGION OF TUSCANY

  • 5 of 5
The Villa actually exceeded expectations from the photos and website description. It is more beautiful then the photos show. The vistas are spectacular and the house fit me and my guests lifestyle to a T. Seven of us, 3 couples and 1 single enjoyed a wonderful week with spacious bedrooms with bathrooms inside 3 out of 4 of the bedrooms, a great living and dining room that made us all comfy and at the same time provided each of us the privacy needed. The patio/terrace was truly our favorite part. It is multi-leveled with several dining and seating options to take in a glass of wine and the beautiful scenery of mountains, vineyards, rolling country side and olive trees---absolutely spectacular. The kitchen is so inviting...we only ate out twice and cooked the other nights. We never wanted for any utensils or dishes, the kitchen is well stocked. The gardens and courtyards are immaculately maintained. The owner was very accomadating and prompt in his responses to all inquiries prior to our trip. The location is great, with a top notch winery within 3 miles and other smaller wineries close by. The village of Castellina in Chianti is so quaint and wonderful to bike ride through or just shop. My only complaint is 1 of the neighbors/owners were very rude and treated us like a pack of teenagers---we were all between 48 and 60 years old! The first night we were so excited to be there. We all gathered outside drinking wine, sharing munchies, stories about our journey from 3 countries to arrive at the Villa.... and we had Italian Classical Music playing on the outside terrace at 6:30 PM. The rude neighbor sceamed at us to turn the music down or off and a few other not so niceties. We were quite taken back as the music was not loud and it was very early in the evening. There were a few more issues during the week where they were rude to us as we greeted them or asked questions. We learned quickly to avoid them, as the rest of the neighbors/owners were quite pleasant, especially the English couple two doors down who entertained a lot and shared great restaurant and local information with us.

We have and will continue to recommended this location and Vlla to our friends who saw our pictures with their mouths open with envy.

Regards,

MBG

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Tuscany itself is beautiful but staying a week in this Villa was by far the highlight of our stay in Italy. The gardens and grounds were beautifully maintained, the Villa meticulously clean and well appointed with every comfort you could imagine. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and hope to return ourselves.

The house is set on a hilltop in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, surrounded by rolling vineyards, olive groves, and wooded hills behind. Castellina, a charming small hill town, is 5kms distant, while Siena is about 25mins by car, and Florence less than an hour. The coast can be reached in about 90 minutes, and Rome in less than three hours. While the setting is idyllically peaceful, many amenities are nearby.

One bedroom can be used as either double or twin, or for three children, although we prefer not have more than eight people in total. The pool and extensive gardens offer peace and relaxation, and for the more energetic, the area is ideal for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits. The house is both cool in summer and warm in winter. The outdoor dining area can be used even when raining, while in the winter months full central heating and a supply of logs for the large open fire maintain a very cosy atmosphere. Our caretaker is available daily to deal with any problems.
