Overview

About the property

La Commenda is located in a quiet and secluded position in the Volpaia hamlet. This small, rural hamlet with its fortified walls dating from Medieval times, is one of the best remaining examples of its kind in Tuscany. It is located, just north of Radda in Chianti, in a beautiful position overlooking vineyards and olive groves. The wines produced on the estate of Volpaia are among the best in the Chianti Classico area, and the cellars certainly deserve a visit. Both the red and white wines, together with the olive oil, are marketed as "Castello di Volpaia", and known worldwide. The farm also manages one of the restaurants of the village where is possible to taste the local cuisine. Cooking classes are also arranged, on request, by the local English-speaking office. La Commenda, is situated at a border of the hamlet, thus offering total privacy. The views from the garden and the pool on the surrounding countryside are absolutely breathtaking. The house has been restored in a traditional Tuscan style, thus granting quality and comfort. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. An out-door equipped terrace offers the perfect spot for relaxing and eating outside, enjoying the perfect feeling of a home in Tuscany. The swimming pool area is closed by a gate and is located on a lower level of the garden, reachable through a few steps. Here guests can also benefit of a huge room, part of what was once an hayloft, that has now been furnished and is an ideal cool "summer sitting room."

Review for stay from 03 September 2016 to 17 September 2016

  • 5 of 5

The property has every thing that was promised and the support of the staff was excellent. The house is like going back in time and feels as though the family have just stepped outside to give you a holiday. If you want a modern sterile unit this is not for you but if you want space, time to yourselves and wonderful views from windows and pool take this house. We cooked most nights and evrrything we needed was there.
