Castellina in Chianti Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 & 2 bedrooms, 2 &1 bathrooms, sleping 8 & 4

POMONA is a traditional estate situated in the heart of the Chianti countryside, near the ancient city of Siena. The oldest buildings of the farm date back to the 1750s. The estate maintains its original structure and still comprises the residential villa, farmhouses, storehouses and the winery. This is what makes it fascinating even today – it conveys a real impression of a traditional Tuscan country estate, surrounded by gardens, olive groves and vineyards. In addition to producing wine and olive oil, the family now runs a small holiday business based in the old villa, following the principles of sustainability and eco-friendly solutions. The villa is surrounded on three sides by a large courtyard shaded by three century-old Lebanon cedars. Embedded in the orchards and gardens and surrounded by olive and fruit trees guest can enjoy a swimming pool offering spectacular views over the rolling hills. Two apartments with independent entrances are available for rent.

Pomona is a working farm that produces organic extra virgin olive oil and Chianti Classico wine which are available for tasting and purchase.

A BEAUTIFUL REAL TUSCANY HOUSE!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Villa Pomona for 1 week with 2 families. It was lovely! The owners are friendly and make you feel real welcome. The pool is perfect! The garden is more than beautiful. The wine and olive oil is delicious. The rooms are big and the furniture is rustique. Siena and other Tuscany highlights are in the area. We will hire this villa again!

WONDERFUL RELAXING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The owners / our hosts (Monica, Inga, and Enrico) were wonderful. They made sure our stay was comfortable and helped in any which way possible. My husband broke his wrist prior to arriving at Villa Pomona, and the owners escorted us to a nearby hospital and made sure he was able to get proper medical attention.

The farm has been in the family for centuries; and staying there would give you a totally Tuscan experience. It is a short distance from Siena, other Chianti attractions, and small cities with great sightseeing and eating places. Driving from Florence or other nearby cities would give you a good tour of the Chianti region.

The apartment is very old since it is part of the original winery, but it is clean, equipped with basic cooking and dining utensils, shared washer, and comfortable bedding. And if you need anything else, just ask the wonderful hosts! The pool is great for hot summer days to cool off before or after sightseeing.

If you are looking for a practical for a family with kids and less expensive place, this is ideal. Otherwise, if you are seeking somewhere luxurious and modern, look elsewhere.

A TRULY CHARMING FARMHOUSE IN THE HEART OF CHIANTI

  • 5 of 5
We've enjoyed every day staying there. The owners are truly amazing people, and have provided a very warm accommodation to us. The wine produced right there on the property is outstanding. The garden is even more beautiful than it looks on the photos. Having a car is a must, and a GPS is highly recommended. Great value and location, all the main landmarks of Tuscany are within about one hour or less of driving. Vaulted stone ceilings keep the lower level comfortably cool in the summer. We would highly recommend it to everyone, and wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

TOSKANA-FEELING AUF WUNDERSCHÖNEM WEINGUT

  • 5 of 5
Wir (Ehepaar) habe zwei erholsame, wunderschöne Urlaubswochen auf dem Weingut Villa Pomona direkt an der Chiantigiana (Straße durchs Chianti-Gebiet) verbracht. Das Ambiente vermittelt durch die wunderbare originale Bausubstanz und die herrliche Vegetation tatsächlich den realistischen Eindruck eines toskanischen Weinguts.
Die Lage ist bestens geeignet für Ausflüge ins etwa 9 Kilometer entfernte großartige Siena und ins toskanische Umland.
Die Wohnung ist nicht luxuriös, aber sehr geräumig, gut ausgestattet, sauber und mit sehr schönen antiken Möbeln bestückt. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns der äußere Essplatz unter einer wunderschönen Glyzinien-Pergola. Auch der gepflegte Pool mit grandioser Aussicht wurde von uns gerne genutzt.
Ein Genuss war auch die allzeit problemlose Versorgung mit hervorragendem Chianti und ebenso gutem Olivenöl, natürlich beides aus eigener Produktion.
Besonders hervorzuheben ist die liebevolle, informative und nette Betreuung durch die Gastgeberin Ingeborg Raspi, die jederzeit für uns da war und uns mit guten Ausflugs- und Gastronomie-Tipps versorgt hat.
Für einen Toskana-Urlaub würden wir jederzeit wieder die Villa Pomona wählen!
