|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This exquisitely restored farmhouse is situated in one of the most beautiful positions, right in the heart of Chianti Classico. From its secluded position the views are absolutely stunning, with all the windows framing a picture of the lovely Chianti countryside at its best. The spacious interiors have been restored to a very high standard, in an authentic Tuscan style and tastefully furnished with ethnic furnishings and antiques. The living areas all open via french windows onto the garden on one side and an internal patio on the other, making the rooms very light and airy. In the patio there is a lovely vine-covered pergola with marble table, ideal for “al fresco” dining. To the front of the house, the furnished terraces provide the perfect spot for enjoying the magnificent views. On this side, there is a pathway leading to the beautiful swimming pool with overflow effect, in a particularly panoramic position. The pool has a large shallow end for children. To the rear of the property, is a converted barn where the housekeeper lives. Resident cat at the property. There is a 1 km unmade driveway leading to Camporempoli. It was partially cemented at the end of 2013 in order to make it more easily accessible.

A bit old and rustic. Nice views overall to Tuscany hills. Slip road to the house is a bit difficult and you have to careful with it. Good atmosphere and cosy place.
Wundervolles verschachteltes Haus in sehr ruhiger Lage mit toller Betreuung vor Ort.Grandioser Pool. Zufahrt nur mit Allradfahrzeug zu empfehlen.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Wonderful nested house in a quiet location with great care on site. Terrific pool. Recommended access only with four-wheel vehicle.
Really beautiful villa in a very scenic property. We loved the views and the villa itself. The gravel road to the villa was a bit hard to navigate, but nothing that was too difficult. Water pressure in some of the bathrooms(esp the one with the bathtubs) could be better, it was hard to bathe in those bathrooms.
The pool was really a nice addition and was enjoyed very much by our children! We had such a lovely time and hope to return!
There is no better place to stay for a large family or group than this property. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The 800 year old home has everything you need. Wonderful views, great pool, large bath rooms and great kitchen. The only complaint is the road leading to the villa. The owner needs to spend some $$ and fix the 2 sharp up hill curves. Maybe partial pavement in these two areas. But all in all great house in a great area of Tuscany!!
We enjoyed our stay in Camporempoli very much! The villa is beautiful, the view impressive, the landscape really nice and the house and garden very well cared for by Marta and the gardener. We enjoyed the pool and also cooking was easy because of the well equipped kitchen. The service was perfect, there is nothing left, you could wish for.
The only thing is, that the road to the house is getting worse overtime and you should recommend four-wheel-drive cars.
We also enjoyed the cooking of Marie Zarro very much and she was nice to talk with and explain her dishes and how she made it.
So in the end everybody´s impression was one of pleasure and luxury and could be repeated in the future.
Camporempoli and Marta (the Inn Keeper) are fabulous!! The views and the house are exactly as you see them online and more! Marta suggested a local chef prepare dinner for us one night, and the experience was delightful. There are some things for potential renters to be aware of when booking: (1) Driveway is extremely hazardous and really does need a powerful vehicle to manuever, (2) there is only one store/restaurant in Lucarelli so, bring groceries with you as the store might be closed when you arrive, (3) pool is not heated, but the thrill and views are worth the slight chill!, and (4) every dollar spent was WORTH IT!!
