Welcome to Lo Stallino, a beautifully restructured former stable located in the hills of the Chianti region of Tuscany 60 km from Florence and 20 km from Siena. The property consisting of five acres of terraced olive orchards, landscaped gardens, and woods, was originally purchased by an American doctor in 1970 as a retirement home. It is currently owned by his son and daughter-in-law, an archaeologist and a landscape architect, who have completely restored the old stable building as their guest house. It is now a charming one bedroom cottage with beautiful views of vineyards and medieval castles, a private garden terrace for outdoor dining, and a large library of novels and guidebooks.
Lo Stallino also features a new kitchen and bathroom, new upholstery for the furniture, hand-made mattresses for the beds, central heating, a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, satellite TV, and wireless internet access. It is ideal for a couple seeking tranquility from the crowds but proximity to the important cultural centers of Tuscany. There are numerous fine restaurants and wineries in the area, as well as cafes and shops in the nearby villages of Lecchi, Radda, and San Sano. There are also hiking trails and natural pools for swimming in the area.
Thank you so much. We have had the most peaceful and idyllic stay (5 days, much too short!) A perfect base to explore Tuscany - or do nothing. I want to wrap it all up and take it home!! Cheers.
As we leave this astoundingly beautiful place,we have refected how lucky we have been to have stayed here... You made our first stay in Italy so special by allowing us to "live" in your lovely 'Lo Stallino,' by providing us with food when we arrived, by attending to our every inquiry, by providing the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Thank you for helping to make our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Italy such a memorable experience! The prosecco was such a nice touch! We know we live a blessed life when we experience a stay as special as this... We truly loved Chianti, Tuscany, Italy, and most of all, meeting you and staying so comfortably in your beautiful 'Lo Stallino'. Until next time...
P.S. Made a great pot of "white beans uccelletto" using your wonderful cookbook, "Food alla Florentine'" in your clay crock! The place was so well-equipped. Thank you!
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this gorgeous fairy-tale cottage with all the comforts and twice the elegance of home! This provided the the perfect base for exploring central Tuscany. We felt equally comfortable staying out in the evening or dining in on pasta and a bottle of local Chianti. Spending the afternoon reading on the terrace and gazing at the Tuscan landscape made for one of the more serene times I've had in quite some time. We left Lo Stallino far more relaxed than when we arrived. If at all possible, we shall return.
We want to thank you both so much for your hospitality and for allowing us the privlege of staying here at Borro al Fumo. As you know, we have been planning this trip for many months and, not surprisingly, had created a vision in our minds of our idyllic time in Tuscany. The reality of Lo Stallino surpassed that vision! It truly is an exceptional place. Both yourselves and Lo Stallino made us feel very comfortable and at home. That sense of comfort translated into one of the most relaxed and enjoyable vacations we have ever experienced. WE wish you all the best and memories of Lo Stallino will always be with us.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa! You all made us feel so welcome! Addison, you did a fantastic job showing us around when we arrived! We love Tuscany and especially this area. Everyone was warm and greeted us with smiles. We truly feel that we were part of the culture and enjoyed the slower pace of life. We will surely return to this area and bring our children so that they can explore and learn about this beautiful country and region.
Our time here, one week, has flown by too quickly for us! What a beautiful place you have here and we're so delighted that there's everything right at our doorstep to explore! Thank you for your advice and for stocking the fridge upon our arrival along with the fresh cut flowers. Looking forward to our cooking classes in town as well as a return visit in the future. Another great memory to add to our "luna di miele."
