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 Metropolitan City of Florence

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 :)

A beautiful appartment in wonderful scenery

  • 5 of 5

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!

Well-located

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Gail. 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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Greve in Chianti apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious and spotless. It was equiped with everything that was necessary for a comfortable stay. During the first two weeks of our stay, the temperature was extremely hot and humid. However, the two air conditioners were able to cool the apartment very nicely (the living room AC during the day and the bedroom AC during the night). There was a nice bakery downstairs, a cafe across the street and within walking distance of everything in town. Lots of great restaurants. The owner was prompt and helpful in all matters.
