Without doubt, the most important feature of this place is that you'll find yourself in the heart of the "Chianti-shire", the most beautiful part of Tuscany (and probably of Italy), but still only a few minutes away from Florence (20-25mins). This house is part of a 14th century villa immersed in the Tuscan countryside, with a stunning view over Chianti hills. The excellent location provides easy access to the most important cultural and touristic locations of Tuscany, such as Pisa (1h10mins), Siena (1h), San Gimignano (45mins), Volterra (1h10mins), Monteriggioni (40mins), Lucca (1h), Arezzo (1h), Cortona (1h30mins). If you don’t want to use your car to go to Florence, a bus stop towards the city is about at 600m from the house, you'll find the timetables in the house. The surrounding countryside also offers the possibility of many fascinating routes on foot and bicycle and, for golf enthusiasts, the famous golf-club “Ugolino" is only 4 kilometers away.
The house is on two floors: the ground floor is formed by the living room with fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with 2 single beds, and two bathrooms (both with showers). If you are 5, we can set a fifth camp-bed in one fo the two bedrooms.
If you travel with a baby, don't worry! We are "family-ready", so we can offer you a cot, we can mount a safety gate for the stairs, set a highchair and a plastic bathing tub.
You can use the big garden, from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the valley, vineyards, olive groves and the adjacent woods, with a large lawn, table, chairs, deck chairs, barbecue and table tennis. Feel free to use the fireplace as well, just be careful :).
I will provide toiletries and linen for you and in the house a washing machine and a dryer are at your disposal.
There is a grocery shop that you can reach in 8-9 mins by foot and 2 supermarkets 5 mins away by car, one in Impruneta and one in Strada in Chianti.
We offer Sky TV in the house, with lots of satellite channels that offer a range of movies and tv shows. There is wifi internet and private lit parking for your car.
A few steps away there is our farm "Santa Cristina a Pancole" that produces organic wine and olive oil: during your stay feel free to ask me for one of our bottles!
A large private forest is waiting for you to walk and go in search of mushrooms, berries! And I will give you a list of the most famous restaurants around the house for great meals.
Read the reviews and you'll understand why staying in this home will be a special experience, that will make your vacation unforgettable.
If you need to bring a pet, please let me know before you book your stay.

I am a student in Florence grown up here with my family. I would like to share our second home with you. I speak English and I live in the house next door!
Why Giacomo chose Greve in Chianti

In May we spent a week at Giacamo' s house near Strada in Chianti and were very happy with our stay. Giacamo was away on our arrival but his Father was there to welcome us and help us settle in to the house. The house has a wonderful view of countryside so typical of Tuscany, olive trees, grape vines and tall cypress trees. From the bottom of the garden you can see the village of Strada in Chianti. The house is well equipped and comfortable, adequate kitchen with large fridge & dishwasher, the two bedrooms each have modern bathrooms. We appreciated having a washing machine and iron etc.. The garden has some shade for outside dining. The house is ideally situated for visiting Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. We used the local bus to visit Florence, the bus stop is near the local shop, about a 10 minute walk away. The local restaurant also situated next to the shop we found to be excellent, it was handy to have a restaurant within walking distance. You must follow Giacomo's instructions for finding the house, it is a little tricky as the sat nav will not take you right to the door. We would not hesitate in recommending this house, it is as good as it looks in the photos.
Beautiful property, spectacular view, excellent location to explore Tuscany.
Giacomo's villa was the perfect home away for 2 couples visiting Tuscany for the first time to enjoy the vistas and the wine (both spectacular from the backyard terrace). Giacomo's father was very welcoming and helpful. High recommendation.
Thank you so much Rick! Hope to see you again here :)
all the best,
Santa Cristina - great location, great villa
Giacomo's villa in Santa Cristina is superb. The apartment is spacious, well-equipped, and beautiful - and that is before you look out the window. The view is always spectacular as the light shifts during the day.
Thank you so much for these nice words. Hope to see you again in this region.
All the best,
This is a very nice and comfortable house. We had a good time here. It is conveniently located near Florence airport - 30 min drive. Giacomo gave us good directions we din't have any problems to find it. He was very kind and gave a ride to our freinds from the train station. There is enough space for 2 couples. View is amazing. We love spacious kitchen where we enjoyed local wines and cheeses. And a very nice yard with a gorgeous view. We walked in a private forest and also walked to the nearest restaurant - La Martellina. Food was very good. We were driving a lot through the Tuscany, visited a lot of sights. It was a perfect vacation that we will never forget. Thank you Giacomo and to your nice family. I highly recommend this place for vacation
Thank you so much Tatyana!
I hope you'll come back one day :)
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung!
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön sowie unser täglicher Ausblick auf Strada in Chianti.
Die sehr freundliche Familie hat uns gut betreut.
Florenz haben wir von Sa. Cristina aus mit dem Bus besucht.
War problemlos und stressfrei.
Alle andere Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Lucca, Greve.....
sind problemlos und landschaftlich sehr schön mit dem Auto zu erreichen.
Wir haben uns gut erholt und können diese Wohnung jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
Cette maison est superbement située avec une vue imprenable sur la magnifique Toscane .
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette maison , l'accueil amical d'Alessandro ,sa disponibilité pour tout renseignement et sa discrétion . La maison est très bien équipée( sauf le manque de couverts qu'il faudrait doubler! ) , agréable et propre . On se sent comme chez soi en rentrant des nombreuses visites à faire à Florence (toute proche en bus ) et dans la région . Un restaurant nous a particulièrement plu et fait bon accueil,c'est "Caminetto del Chianti "conseillé par le gîte et par le routard .Nous conseillons bien volontiers cette location .
Je suis heureux que vous avez apprécié la maison. nous allons certainement doubler le nombre de couverts.
