Very private property. Chianni is also located within driving distance of the local attractions like Volterra, San Gimingnano, Pisa, and Siena. We would have liked to stay longer. Our hosts met us when we arrived and were warm and welcoming. The home was set up with everything we needed to prepare meals at home. A great Italian vacation.
My family came and stayed 9 nights in the large propery in beginning of October 2018. We were 10 in total, including one infant. The property is very nice, renovated in a rustique style fitting of the absolutely stunning location. It has a large kitchen that fit us all easily. The property is simply great with some amazing viewpoints and family friendly. Along with the rental comes a dedicated gazebo area next to the pool with sunbeds. It also come with a dedicated outside area separated from the house to sit and eat/chat that also has stunning views and possiblity to bbq. The local restaurant using only local produce is absolutely superb!
Alfredo is very friendly, gives great local tips and helps out if anything is amiss.
Overall we loved the place and would consider returning.
The reason why we have put 4/5 stars are because of 2 minor things, unfortunately perhaps out of Alfredos hands. 1) We came in 3 cars and combined with the other guests cars, the village people and due to a construction going on in the village, parking was a bit sparse. Two cars easily fit in front of the house but the third had to be parked on street somewhere in the village. On a few occasions the local villagers got quite upset if a car was parked outside (note: not blocking anything) their property and one time we got yelled at. 2) The village has a lot of animals and whilst this is very nice and atmospheric with kittens, chickens etc around, especially for my family who loves animals, one villager let their pack of dogs roam the street outside their house. They do not go beyond that small section, but if you walk around the village (or have to park the car there) they will come out. One of them nipped me when I was walking past.
We highly recommend this fantastic place! It's a stunning location not too far away from Pisa, Florence, Lucca and it's very family friendly.
