Stunning view of the chianti valley with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 night stay in Ruffoli was more than we expected. Not only was the gorgeous view of the chianti valley more than a 200 degree panoramic vission but our hosts Angelika and Bassem were just delightful. They shared their wine, made a delicious dessert for us and spent time with us. We visited so many wonderful places that we wouldn't have known about if it wasn't for them. I think my husband will be going back next fall to help Bassem with his vineyard lol. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. We will never forget you.

Comfortable apartment & great location for seeing Chianti

  • 5 of 5

We visited late Sept. Angelika and Basim made us very welcome from the start, giving us ideas of where to go and where to eat. It was enjoyable chatting to them both and they added to the enjoyment of our stay...Thankyou !

The apartment is clean and comfortable, and the location is peaceful and has beautiful views. Great watching the sunsets. You can walk through the countryside from the front door. The location is great for visiting the Chianti region, a 10min drive into Greve where there is a selection of restaurants and cafes. There are many other fascinating villages within easy reach and Sienna and Florence are nearby for a day trip.

Friendly, Comfortable and Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We visited Chianti with high expectations which were all meet during our 5 fabulous days staying in this lovely apartment. The hosts were charming, full of great local information and good to chat to. The apartment was comfortable with wonderful views of the surrounding vineyards and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Our daughter loved her room with views of the garden. While the days were warm when we stayed, every afternoon and evening there was a beautiful cool breeze, great for sitting outdoors and enjoying good wine and food. A guaranteed fantastic place to stay while enjoying this wonderful part of the world.

Best holyday in Chianti!

  • 5 of 5

The appartment we rented in this old restored house in Greve in Chianti was perfect for our family, with 2 large bedrooms-spectacular view over the valley- and a full-equiped kitchen.

Our housts, ms. Angelika and her husband were so nice, we had great plesure chating with them in the garden, until late in the night, having a glass of red wine from Querchebella Wineyard from nearby.

You have a lot of possibilities from Greve: you can go to Florence, Pisa, visit old castles or maybe enjoy the beach in Tirrenia.

It's a 5 stars villa in very good price!

Wundervolle Tage in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten dort 5 wunderbare Tage im Mai. Mit unserer Unterkunft waren wir mehr als zufrieden!

Die sehr liebevoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung war tiptop sauber und bestens ausgestattet. Die Betten groß und bequem. Im romantischen Garten und auf der bezaubernden Terrasse des Hauses könnte man den ganzen Tag verbringen und die atemberaubende Aussicht über die Chianti-Hügel genießen. Die reizenden und sehr hilfsbereiten Gastgeber sind mit der Geschichte und den Besonderheiten ihrer Umgebung sehr vertraut und geben so viele gute Insider-Tips für Ausflüge, Besichtigungen, Restaurantbesuche, Vinotheken , Einkäufe..., dass man sich doch auf den Weg macht. Die Lage eignet sich hervorragend für Tagesausflüge. Am Ende des Tages waren wir dann froh, in unsere ruhige Oase auf dem Hügel zurückzukommen.

Liebe Angelika, lieber Bassem, vielen Dank für Eure Gastfreundschaft. Wir kommen bald wieder!

Sabina und Ralf

Très agréable séjour au coeur du Chianti !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au cœur du Chianti ! une vue impressionnante sur les vignobles et champs d'oliviers et des couchers de soleil somptueux !

L'appartement, très propre, fonctionnel et décoré avec raffinement dispose de deux grandes chambres, idéales pour des vacances en famille !

Nous avons apprécié les repas dans le jardin, pris au milieu d'une multitude de variétés de plantes, entretenues avec amour par Angelika et Bassem !

Ils sont d'une très grande disponibilité, toujours prêts à partager leurs expériences et leurs connaissances de la Toscane !

Le logement est idéalement situé, proche de Florence, Pise, Sienne et San Gimignano !

Des vacances de rêve !

Attention cependant à l'accès, dont la dernière portion de route n'est pas goudronnée, et qui pourrait être délicate pour les possesseurs d'une auto très basse et/ou sportive.
