About Jean Claude Pucci

My name is Claudia Jeandeau; my father and my grandfather had farms where they produced milk, wheat and bred animals. They also loved everything about the countryside. For me, it has been a love that I have cherished for years, although I had a different job. At last, in 1994, I had the opportunity to make my secret dream come true.The dream was to create a farm, large enough to offer accommodation to people who are looking for a place where man and nature live together in harmony: where I could offer food made with natural produce, with no artificial additives; in a word, a place where I could turn this love into a real job. What I offer is experiencing inner life through the peace and harmony that our farm can offer.

Jean Claude Pucci purchased this apartment in 2000

Amazing Tuscan Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a relaxing and peaceful holiday and we were definitely not disappointed! The farmhouse is located around 3 km above the quiet town of Chianni with the most amazing views. Our only regret was not hiring a car to explore further afield.
Our room was clean and well equipped and the bed was really comfortable.
The shutters in the room allow you deep and peaceful sleep well into the next morning.
With no TV in our room we spent the evenings playing lawn bowls and table tennis before having a glass of wine and watching the sunset.
One night the owner, Claudia, cooked us an amazing 4 course Italian meal which we still cant stop thinking about!
Claudia and her husband Enrico are the loveliest people you could hope to meet. They are both well travelled and worldly and are full of interesting stories and conversation.
We were very sad to leave and cannot wait to go back. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to relax and recharge their batteries.

Peaceful at heart

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our wonderful holiday in Tuscany. We were two families with four children aged 4 to 10. The house was very comfortable
and well equipped. The pool was just fantastic and enjoyable for both kids and adults. The garden was in full bloom and sitting there was a well-deserved nerve therapy. Some days we just stayed at the pool and enjoyed the sun and peace around, some days we travelled to see all those wonderful little Tuscany villages and towns within an hour-drive from Chianni such as Volterra, Pisa, San Gimignano and Sienna, and on some days we went to the coast to enjoy the sea. One of the best experiences for all of us, especially the kids, was our every night guest - a little cute fox. I definitely recommend Caudia's Tuscany dinner, which was delicious. Both Claudia and Enrico are very charming people and we cannot thank them enough for their hospitality.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week in June. The house and grounds are really beautiful; when we arrived the gardens were bright with roses, geraniums and the last of the wisteria. There were lovely olive groves, walnut and mulberry trees and the wayside was full of wild flowers, it was stunning. The swimming pool is a lovely size for proper swimming and kept beautifully clean with plenty of sun beds for lazy days of reading and sunbathing. We had fantastic breakfasts with lovely produce provided by Claudia on the sunny patio. Claudia is very bright, interesting and ethical. There is a real sense of being in a place that has goodness at it's heart. Claudia is scrupulously fair and honest, she cares for the land with passion and pride and she works really hard. It is a truly remarkable place and we loved it. Stephanie and Larry

The authentic Tuscan experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for seven nights in September 2014. The hospitality from the owners, Claudia and Enrico, was beyond our expectations: very helpful and kind. The house is amidst the green beauty of Tuscany, safe behind a closed gate. When entering, you will discover an oasis of peace and quiet. The house is very beautiful and authentic, the pool and gardens are clean and well maintained. Every studio has its own terrace with furniture. It's the ideal place to stay when you want to rest and relax.
Extra plus: the last night we stayed for Claudia's dinner. My girlfriend is vegetarian (and I only eat meat once in a while), but Claudia made a great effort by preparing us a superb vegetarian meal in three courses. It was simply the best and pure Italian food I have ever had. It was the ultimate climax of a lovely week in Claudia and Enrico's house. We stayed there in September 2013. The fact that I write a review almost ten months later, proves how we liked staying there.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
This property is such a hidden gem! We did not want to leave after spending about a week at this place. When we first arrived we were amazed at how completely spotless our apartment was. The apartment was also well-equipped and we enjoyed cooking a few meals there. Our late arrival time was accommodated and we woke up the next morning to a Tuscan paradise! The pictures truly do not do it justice. There were beautiful plants and flowers growing all over the property, a perfectly relaxing pool side, and an amazing view overlooking the Tuscan hills, particularly beautiful and sunrise and sunset. We personally enjoyed all the wildlife to see such as the donkeys, chickens, cat, and even a few cute birds nested above our doorway. Claudia, our host was wonderful and eager to accommodate all of our needs. For a small fee she can do laundry which was very helpful to us and so nice to come home from a long day of sightseeing to our freshly folded laundry. We also had her prepare us breakfast one morning which was wonderful and absolutely delicious- one of the highlights of our trip! The property can be difficult to find originally and we would recommend using a GPS if possible - though we didn't, it would have helped! It is out in the country but still only a quick drive from charming nearby towns and about an hour's drive from larger cities like Pisa and Florence. We found it to be the perfect place for both sightseeing in Tuscany cities and relaxing out in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. A perfect vacation! We can't thank Claudia enough for opening up this property to us and only hope that we can make it back out here again!

Wonderful Retreat in Tuscany!!!

  • 5 of 5
My good friend and I traveled and stayed at this lovely place for 6 days. This is definitely a place that you will need to travel by car to get to. The place was relatively easy to find especially if you have a GPS that can get you into Chianni. From there, we checked with one of the locals who directed us the rest of the way to our location. We were greeted by Claudia who was so kind and helpful with anything that we needed. Her husband was so fun and kind as well. We enjoyed walking around their beautiful property and lounging around the pool. We also had a couple of opportunities to help Claudia feed the donkeys! It was a great location for day trips around the area. We were able to go to Florence, Volterra, San Gimignano and La Spezia (which was about 2 hours away). We also spent a couple of days just staying there because it was so relaxing and beautiful. Claudia is a wealth of information when it comes to great places to go locally. If you want a populated beach or a quiet beach, she is the lady to talk to. If you need maps, she is the lady to see. She was always so sweet and never was impatient when she was in the middle of doing something else. The accommodations were lovely and it felt like a retreat away from home. Claudia, we truly enjoyed our time with you and enjoyed getting to know you! I will send you pictures!!! Joy (and Deb)

The estate dominates the entire area and stretches over 60 ha into the province of Pisa, 3 km from the typical, medieval village of Chianni, 10 km from the spa resort Casciana Terme, 31 km from the beach and with possibility to walk through the wonderful pine forest. The wooded surrounding is characterised by golden cornfields which alternate with one hundred years old olive groves and precious vineyards. The mysterious Volterra is around the corner (32) km, the medieval small town of San Gimignano with its lovely family towers is about 45 km. Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa is about 40 min far from Poggio ai Lupi, Lucca 53 km and Florence 84 km far from us. The world-famous cypress alley of Bolgheri is 48 km away; the wine street of the Etruscan coast is 30 km away. Directly from the Farmhouse either on foot or by bike you can discover unknown and fairytale-like corners, like the waterfall of the Ghiaccione.The lombard fortress of Pietracassa is to admire at the opposite site of valley of Poggio ai Lupi

Other Activities: walking with donkeys and truffles searching

Directly by us, it is possible to get a wine tasting with rich and delicious bites as we produce organic agricultural products such as olive oil, red and white wine, honey, pickled olives, artichokes, vegetables and mushrooms.

Other Activities: truffle hunting, walking with donkeys (not in the heat because of brakes)

The Opera singer Andrea Bocelli was born in the medieval township of Lajatico, which is located just 12 km far from organic Farmhouse Poggio ai Lupi. The birthhouse of Bocelli is still inhabited by his mother. Once every year takes place at about 15th July an unforgettable concert. Andrea Bocelli sings in this period for 3-4 days in the so-called outdoor 'theater of silence' and is possible to hear his full voice sliding down over the hills consisting of azure blue and gray clay. It certainly worth it to visit the theater, which is frequently decorated with sculptures created by famous artists. Because of the small number of tickets is recommended to request it in considerably advance.

We offer guided and individual bike and walk trips-on demand in considerable advance. We are glad to give you upon arrival useful information about roads suitable by bike and the most beautiful hiking trails. On request we can give you some local maps. We rent mountain bikes and hybrid bikes which are very comfortable also for the quieter cycling. The technical characteristics of mountain bikes are: Shimano XT 27 speeds, V-brakes Shimano LX, frame aluminum carbon 12 kg, tyres Schwalbe Smart Sam. The technical characteristics of hybrid bikes are: comfort gell saddle, Shimano De Ore 27 speeds, tires Schwalbe Marathon plus, aluminum frame 14 kg, waterproof back bag Ortlieb.

Other possible activities in the area: bathing, swimming, snorkeling
