Beautiful stone Tuscan hamlet dating back to the 16th century comprising 8 accommodations and nestling deep among the splendid Chianti Classico vineyards. This property still shows the blazon of the astronomer Galileo Galilei who stayed in this hamlet many years and drew inspiration from the beauties of the surrounding landscape.
This property was restored in 2010 preserving its original architectural features and its ancient charm and was turned into 8 charming accommodations. All of the apartments are welcoming and tastefully furnished in a typical Tuscan style with wrought iron beds and nice pieces of furniture. This hamlet is located right in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, a short distance away from the small towns of Panzano and Castellina in Chianti as well as from other charming Chianti villages such as Radda in Chianti, Gaiole, Greve in Chianti.

Very nice two bedroom in Chianti...lots of privacy and vineyards. Kitchen well equipped and beautiful outside areas including pool. A real Tuscan experience.
We spent wonderful time here, very nice place...
Location was perfect. Just outside of Castellina, Chianti. We visited at the end of May and it was cooler than we anticipated but there was a 3 day wine festival in Castellina which was a terrific surprise. The villa was very nice but damn and cold during the evenings. The grounds and pool were lovely but we only sat beside the pool one day as the weather was too cold. The only thing we didn't like was the cat roaming around the outside of the villa. I don't like cats at all so I didn't feel comfortable sitting on the terrace as the cat would just show up. Sounds silly but when you really don't like cats it was very unnerving. The directions were great but you need to follow them literally. I would recommend staying here to my friends.
