About Bergljot Leifsdottir
I was born in Iceland but I moved to Italy when I was 19 years old. I moved with my husband Enrico to Greve in Chianti in 1992 and I was the first Icelander to become a resident in the Comune of Greve in Chianti. Our daughter Linda was born in 1997. We moved to Bagno a Ripoli (Florence) in 2012 but we decided to leave almost all our furnitures in our apartment in Greve in Chianti so it is a mixture of Italian-Icelandic home. I have rented apartments to Icelanders in Tuscany for several years and I like to show Florence and the Chianti area to Icelanders and organizing for them cooking classes in Florence.
Bergljot Leifsdottir purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Bergljot Leifsdottir chose Greve In Chianti
When you enter in the apartment you will admire the view and the light of the living room. You don´t need to use the car, everything is in a walking distance. Although the property is only 5 minutes walk from the main square, our guests feel that they are a part of the people in Greve in Chianti but not tourists.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our guests say that the photos can't give the idea of the apartment. The apartment seems bigger to them and they love the old furnitures that are almost 90 years old and are from my husband's grandparents. You can take a wonderful walk up to Montefioralle or Castello di Uzzano and if you want to go to Florence you don't have to worry of going by car and spend a lot of money for a parking place, you just take the bus and the bus stop is 3 minutes walk. You will love the food and the wine in Greve in Chianti :)

Exactly as advertised and what we wanted. A comfortable apartment in a wonderful town.
This property is right in the town of Greve just a few hundred meters from the iconic town square. It is a home in every sense and feels like you have just stepped into a friends or family members place. It is exactly as advertised. We especially enjoyed the large windows that gave access to the wrap around porch, sunlight and views. There are a dozen or more opportunities for a meal out or glass of local Chianti wine without ever getting in your car. The walk is easy and flat. The stairs into the apartment were not at all difficult even though I had an injured knee and concerns before we arrived. They are level and wide with landings.
The owners were warm and welcoming. We felt that it would’ve been nice to get to know them better. Next time!
Our stay was a month long. Unfortunately we had unseasonably cold and wet weather which made it that much more important that we had the comforts of home. I recommend this property without reservation. The washer worked well, the kitchen appliances were easy to figure out ( without knowledge of Italian) the shower was hot and the sofas comfortable. And we loved the bakery that was right downstairs. Thank you Begga for everything. See you next time!
it was really a pleasure to have you and I hope to see you again and that the weather will be better
La belle Toscane
Belle maison, bien équipée, emplacement idéal pour visiter la Toscane.
Tout était parfait.
A beautiful appartment in wonderful scenery
We spent a long weekend in Greve and had an absolutely lovely time. The appartment is perfect with 2 large bedrooms and a big living space to accomadate you. Bergljot was wonderfully accomdating and had lots of helpful information and maps regarding the town and surrounding area...she even delivered a handbag that we left behind to us in Florence!! The location is great, just a short walk in to the town where you can findany lovely restaurants and the market on a Saturday morning. Would recommend the walk to Montefiore if the weather is fine as the views from there are sensational. Also do try the chianti!
Dear Grace. Thanks for your stay and it was a pleasure to see you again in Florence
This was a spacious, lovingly decorated, clean apartment near the centre of Greve, with shops and restaurants within walking distance, even for my husband, who uses a cane. Bergljot writes that the apt is suitable for the "infirm," but be aware, North Americans, that the apartment is on what we would call the 3rd floor, a long staircase up, which wasn't a snap for any of us, even the younger couple we were with. Perhaps four of us taxed the hot water availability, but we on three occasions had to adjust the heater and wait for water to heat. If you plan to use wi-if, make certain you get detailed instructions--we were without wi-fi for much of our stay because of some confusion.
Don't, however, let these alerts deter you, because Bergljot's apartment is not only very comfortable, but both its amenities and location made us feel at home--a fine coffee shop and eating place across the street, a bakery next door, a grocer on the corner, a supermarket down the street, plenty of wine bars, and good (even fine) restaurants to choose from. The locale is stunning, with old and beautiful towns nearby to explore.
Thanks for your stay. The guests have always found the wifi connection very good and I explained to you how to switch it on and off. As it hasn't rained for more than 6 months the water pressure can get low and that's why I explained to you that you could need to open the water next to the heater. In the description under Suitablity it's written that the apartment is unsuitable for elderly and infirm but not suitable as you wrote in the review
appartement spacieux et propre, bien situé.
Nous avons trouvé l'appartement tout à fait semblable à la description faite dans l'annonce ; très agréable, spacieux, bien tenu et disposant de tout le nécessaire pour un court séjour. la propriétaire nous a fourni les renseignements dont nous avions besoin pour les courses et la visite de la ville et des environs. Nous avons pu garer la voiture dans la rue sans paiement.
Petit bémol, les petits lits de la deuxième chambre sont plutôt étroits pour des adultes , prévus pour des enfants.
Dans l'ensemble , logement à recommander.
Large,clean and character full.
The apartment was quite centrally located in Greve and was very comfortable and clean. The owner is extremely helpful and we had the feeling like we were staying at a relative's. All amenities were within walking distance and easy to access.
it was a great pleasure to have you and your husband and I hope to see you again
