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 :)

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.

Our home in Greve!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Greve on a day trip 7 years ago. We decided to come back for a month last October. Bergljot's apartment became our 2nd home. We could walk to the butcher, baker, local and farmers' markets. The piazza was also within walking distance, as well as many restaurants. Our owner provided well-appointed and spotlessly clean accommodations. We enjoyed cooking in her typical Tuscan cucina, but she also provids the best restaurant recommendations in the ares. A car is essential if you wish to visit other towns in the region and the many wine estates. Parking is always available on the street near the apartment. There is no elevator, but there is a bakery in the building and a nice cafe right across the street. Also, the people of Greve are lovely and are very happy to help you with your Italian! We loved it!

Very satisfied with the accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very roomy and extremely clean. It was furnished with beautiful antique furniture and the kitchen was well equipped, it even had ice trays. An American must. The location was on the corner of a busy street, two floors over a bakery, across the street from a great little deli and cafe. It was noisy during the day, but we were mostly gone. Everything closes about 7:00 so it did not disrupt our sleep. Accept on Friday and Saturday night things did get a little loud then. It was within walking distance of everything in Greve. It is also a three story walk up, could be tough for some.

Gem of an apartment in Greve

  • 5 of 5

Somehow my previous review showed with only 2 stars. Sorry about that. It should have shown 5 for both the property and the owners,. As in my previous review, we loved the property and the area..This property is 5* plus .
