VILLA IL CASTELLACCIO

Greve Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom Villa for 10-12 people & Apartments with 2-3 bedrooms for 4-6 people.

Villa il Castellaccio lies in a panoramic position surrounded by vineyards and olive groves at Lucolena, near Greve, in the heart of the Chianti countryside. It has an independent VILLA (for 10/12 people) with its own private pool & garden and four large APARTMENTS (for 4/6 people) sharing another big swimming pool & gardens. All self catering units. Strategically placed for Florence (only 20 mins by train from nearby Figline) and a comfortable drive from Siena, San Gimignano & Arezzo, makes it an ideal home-base for combining sight seeing and relaxation. Have fun visiting medieval towns like Greve in Chianti, Castellina, Gaiole, Radda and along the way, discover typical restaurants, Castles, Wineries & Nature Reserves. On our hilltop you can find an C11th church and the ruins of the original Castle, destroyed in the C14th strife between Guelfs and Ghibellines. But after an exciting day out it’s great to get back “home” to the fresh country air and a dip in the pool !

Cooking classes and Dinners with Chef: It is possible to organize Cooking classes and Dinners (for those of you who just love the food but don't cook) with a professional Chef who comes to your kitchen on the evening you prefer- it's a great highlight to a stay at Villa il Castellaccio and very popular. You can choose from several menus, all typical Tuscan!!....your kitchen is cleaned up for you after which is nice too!

Wine tasting: We do wine and olive oil tasting in our wine cellar € 5 per person.

There is also a small museum of farming equipment from days gone by.

Trips further afield: Maybe some of you would like to explore more distant places

We can organize day trips or half day excursions to places like Rome, Siena, Venice and the Cinque terre (to name but a few).

With special permits enabling our drivers to go directly into the Historical city centres and often right up to the main monuments and places of interest, means you can concentrate your time enjoying the sights without the hassle of parking, traffic and endless walking.

Another advantage is for the Chianti wine tour; noone has to te-total for driving so you can ALL enjoy the wine!

The best place to celebrate my birthday!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the villa we were amazed at how perfect it was from the views, the size of the villa, and the charm! Leonardo was so helpful in the months leading up to our arrival and also during our stay. Each bedroom in the villa was nicely appointed and comfortable. The en suite bathrooms were large with really nice showers. We had 11 in our group and not once did we feel cramped. We cooked several meals in the large kitchen while sipping the villa produced wine. Evenings were spent either sitting outside by the pool or around the large dining table. We took day trips to Siena, San Gimignano and also Florence but we all agreed that the best part of our trip was hanging out at the villa. The kids loved the pool and they enjoyed exploring the property. I am already trying to figure out how to go back in 2015. We loved it!

Wonderful Views - Very Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5
Villa Catellacio became our 'home away from home' for our group of 10 for entirely too short of a time! The villa is very well maintained with beautil views of the Tuscan countryside and is quite comfortable. We took advantage of Leonardo setting up a chef for us for our first night there which was an incredible dinner. The weather was a bit cooler than expected this year so we did not get to take full advantage of the pool however it was very relaxing to sit out at the end of a long day of touring. The villa is located near Figline (train access to Florence) and 15 - 20 minutes from Greve. We took advantage of Leonardo's recommendation of the small restaurant in Dudda several times (the house wine is wonderful!) Please note that the villa is entirely self-catering so a trip to the coop in Figline is a must upon arrival even for things such as sugar, salt and pepper. All in all our week was far too short so we hope to return someday - perhaps to try one of the smaller apartments in the complex.
Thanks to Leonardo and Roxy for their direction and suggestions for the week!

Fantastic week in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this villa was absolutely perfect and we were all sorry to see it come to an end! I stayed there with my husband, two young children (aged 2 and 5) and my mother-in-law in Castellaccio 3. The unit was incredibly spacious, clean, comfortable and furnished with all the amenities we could have wanted. Leonardo and Roxana were extremely hospitable and friendly, and allowed us to feel right at home. The place was well-maintained and kept up, and yet we rarely saw signs of people being around doing the upkeep, thereby allowing us to enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of the surroundings. Our children enjoyed multipled swims in the pool each day and we all loved making dinners in the beautiful kitchen, as well as making delicious pizzas in the communal pizza oven. We enjoyed being able to mingle with other families and share our meals with them when we chose to, but also to have as much privacy as we needed in our own place. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Tuscany area, and in fact have already done so since getting home 24 hours ago!

Excellent place to relax in beautiful Chianti

  • 5 of 5
This place has all the advantages of an excellent location that you can think of when going to the Tuscany. It is located in the heart of the Chianti district so you can travel around and enjoy wine. If you think about visiting historical cities these are maximum 90 minutes drive from that place. And if you think about staying at home enjoying the sun and lovely nature this is also the right place to be. The owner and host – Leonardo is probably one of the nicest person on the planet – always ready to help, providing dozens of useful tips on vineries, sightseeing tours, restaurants… We will definitely think about returning to that place and to the Tuscany.

Thanks to Leonardo's good directions we arrived at Villa Il Castellaccio quite early and were greeted by Leonardo who told us that they were "busy working for you" getting ourapartment ready. He showed us where we could leave our luggage and then gave us a local map with suggestions for grocery stores and places to eat lunch before returning to check-in. The setting of Villa Castellaccio is wonderful and the view breathtaking. It is about 400 metres up in the Tuscan hills, which are covered with vineyards. At check-in, we were excited to see our apartment (Castellacio 3) and we were not disappointed. It was very spacious and full of character. The interior had been modernized yet they had managed to retain the character of the building. The best part was the covered porch off the kitchen. We ate most of our meals there and everything tasted so much better outdoors, looking at the gorgeous view. The pool is well maintained and there are plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. The other apartments were occupied and it was nice in the late afternoon to visit the pool and share our days' adventures with the other guests, though often we had the pool to ourselves. One evening we made pizza dough and cooked pizza in the wood fire pizza oven. We are no experts so it took us a few hours but the results were quite good and our teenage children thought it was great fun. From Il Castellaccio, you can easily take a train into Florence or drive, as we did to Sienna, Volterra and San Gimignano. We did not take advantage of Leonardo's wine tasting simply because it is too far for us to bring back wine to the states but we hear that he is very enthusiastic about it and it is well worth it. Leonardo was an extremely accommodating host and really made you feel as though you were a guest of his family. We would be happy to and hope to stay at Il Castellaccio again. Don't hesitate - book it! You won't be disappointed.

Nice holidays in a pleasant environment

  • 5 of 5
during our one-week stay near Greve we felt very comfortable - Leonardo, the owner, really takes care of his guests - starting from welcoming his guests, explaining the property and facilities, making a tour in his cellar and also providing good recommendation of local cuisine and must-sees in Tuscany.
The property was very clean and well maintained - a plus is the mini-bar - a selection of 0'7L bottles of Leonardos different Chianti wines that you can really enjoy.
All-in-all we, a family with two children (9 and 6 years old), enjoyed our stay very much and would warmly recommend it to friends.
