The shared pool (14x 6.30 mt.; open from 5th of May to 28th September) is located among the olive trees. There is also a large common area with lounges and umbrellas where guests can gather. There is also a ping pong table and a table football.

Interactions with Guests

The owners personally attend to welcome and assist the guests. They are totally unobtrusive but happy to help them when they need their assistance.

The region

Chianti is an area extending between Florence and Siena. It is famous for its unique landscape characterized by gently rolling hills covered by vineyards and olive trees. This land has a long history which still shines through the countless little medieval towns, small hamlets and castles scatters on the entire territory.

San Gimignano, Volterra, Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti Castellina or San Casciano V.P. are just some the beautiful landmarks you can visit in the area.

May be Chianti is mostly famous for its wine and olive oil and of course you can have wonderful wine experiences visiting cellars and testing different labels touring across the area but generally people associates this kind of holidays also to the food. It is not a secret that cookery here has always been one of the highest attraction and remarkable pursuit. Few places in the world can claim such an incomparable variety of dishes and typical recipes.

In summer, almost everywhere, there are lots of gastronomic events very often accompanied with fairs and parade with locals dressed with period costumes and live music concerts.

Il Genius Loci

  • 5 of 5

Sono stata più volte ospite di questa meravigliosa struttura e ci tornerò ancora.

A parte la bellezza, la pulizia dei diversi appartamenti (me ne manca solo uno da abitare, su cinque), il livello degli arredamenti e l'assortimento delle forniture per cucina etc, sono meravigliosi anche gli spazi esterni , la piscina, i giardini e i patii, curatissimi e ben progettati, non ci sono zanzare!!!!! L'atmosfera è incredibilmente rilassante, il Genius Loci della toscanità presenzia gli spazi con tutta la sua magia e i proprietari si occupano delle esigenze di tutti con vero senso di ospitalità.Gli eventi nella Villa storica e il cordiale aperitivo chiudono un quadro di vera delizia. Aspettateci perchè torniamo presto : Marzia, Martina e Gherardo.
