Overview

Greve Apartment 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!

Bella Vista! Loved it here!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this lovely Tuscan Villa couldn't have been more perfect. The home was spacious and cozy at the same time. Ours had three bathrooms and two bedrooms. Our bed was very comfortable and the owners made sure there were extra blankets for the cool spring evenings. The location was excellent... we were able to take many day trips that were just an hour or two away. Sienna, Pisa, Lucca, Florence all so beautiful... but nice to end the day at our villa and a little piece of heaven!

Leonard is such a wonderful host - he made sure our stay was just right and referred us to several local restaurants that were amazing! He also arranged a fabulous cooking lesson for us right in our own kitchen - we learned how to make several popular Tuscan dishes that I'm now proud to say that I can make!

I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Chianti area - oh, and bonus, they have great wine and olive oil made right here and is stocked in your room - very reasonable prices!

I miss it already... Grazie Leonardo! We will tell all our friends to visit when they are in Italy and we hope to be back ourselves! Wish I could give you 10 Stars!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We've been in Tuscany before but were not prepared for the serene beauty that engulfs you when in Castellaccio. The gorgeous vineyard views and the silence broken only by the muffled bells of the tiny church in Lucolena make you feel like you are alone in this beautiful place. And yet you can easily reach Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano and even Assisi. After busy and hot trips during the day we enjoyed big and clean pool and pleasant breezy evenings on our private patio.

Excellent supermarket is 15 minutes away, as well as few local stores for basic necessities that are even closer. Restaurants with great food, gorgeous views. Vineyards and wineries everywhere...

Apartment is very tastefully decorated, big, very clean and bathroom stocked with toiletries. Grounds nicely maintained.

Leonardo who speaks excellent English is very charming and endlessly helpful.
You feel at every step that owners are truly trying to please you.

We are family of three from the US and we stayed in Castellaccio 4 for two weeks. We can't wait to go back.

Wonderful time in Chianti

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Villa il Castellaccio and had a wonderful time. The apartment was large and nicely setup. The whole Villa grounds are great, with beautiful views, and the swimming pool was very refreshing after touring around in the hot weather.

The location was very good for several day trips to Florence, Siena, and even the Cinque Terre.

Leonardo was a wonderful host. Looking forward to the next opportunity to stay there.

The Chianti area is a small but stunningly beautiful part of Tuscany. Explore the famous rolling hills 'Le dolci colline' depicted in Renaissance Art, and discover castles, wine cellars, Typical eating places & craftshops and the many medieval towns, like Greve, Radda, Gaiole and Castellina. Perhaps you may come upon one of the local gastronomic events(called Sagre) or an antique fair and there is always a market somewhere every day ! As we are central, you can reach most places in minimum 5 to max.40 mins. The main cities of Tuscany; Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa & Volterra are also close at hand, and don't forget the fashion outlets The Mall & Prada !! both near Figline. From there you can hop on a train and be in Florence in just 20 mins (we supply timetables). In a day you can even reach the coast for places like Le Cinque Terre and romantic Porto Venere. The nearest villages for food stores and Typical Trattorias are Lucolena and Dudda,only 1km away.
