About Lis Grundmann

I'm born in Germany, I studied architecture at Berlin. I live in Italy since 1991 where I met my husband Roberto. We took over the estate from Roberto's parents in 1999, where we live with our 2 children and Roberto's mother Eli.

Lis Grundmann purchased this house in 1974

Why Lis Grundmann chose Radda In Chianti

In 1974 Giorgio Bianchi moved his family from Milan to Radda to fulfil the dream of a lifetime: living in the country and learning to make wine. This was a brave choice at a time when Chianti was a wild and wonderful place, economicially backward, and without good quality winegrowing and tourism, with a very few exceptions. With passion and a great deal of effort Giorgio and his wife Eli rebuilt the long-abandoned farmhouse, replanted the vineyards and built a small cellar. After Giorgio passed away prematurely in 1999, his son Roberto took over the winery. He and his wife Lis have succeeded in developing the farm’s potential and bringing its wine production to an excellent standard.

What makes this house unique

Val delle Corti is a realy beautiful place, even if we live and work here every day we still see it. I first came here as a turist and I enjoyed the possibilities to see all these cities of tuscan art and to relax at home in the garden with its beautiful view, the sun and peace.

A perfect week in Radda

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Capanna. The location about 5 min drive from Radda worked well for us. The house was quiet, spacious and perfect for us and our dog - the house and kitchen were very well equipped (including a few items Lis hat put in the fridge to get us started), and with comfortable beds. Luckily the weather was such that we could enjoy the patio as well, but the heating also worked well when needed. Lis and Roberto were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. We hope to have an opportunity for a return visit.

Wonderfull

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderfull and relaxing stay and ours hosts were of great assistance when planning our visits to other areas of Tuscany and both Lisa & Roberto were most friendly during our stay,and being so close to Radda in Chianti was great when looking for daily supplies.The location of Podere Val Delle Corti situated in the centre of Chianti gave great access to surrounding areas would love to return.

Fantastic location right in the heart of chianti

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during april, when the weather can be cold and can Ben marvelous, not matter what the weather is doing Tuscany and chianti are always beautiful. This was our home base for trips to Florence, montepulciano and other short drives around the chianti region. Rada was my personal favorite, exactly what I was looking for in a Tuscan holiday. Lis was wonderful, accommodating and extremely friendly, I could not recommend this property for a chianti stay more !

Perfect little wine cottage in the heart of chianti

  • 5 of 5

Lis and Roberto were so welcoming and helpful during our stay, even having a bottle of wine and food stocked for our arrival. We enjoyed the countryside with charming towns and the wineries along the windy roads. We were able to make day trips to Florence and Siena and other Tuscan towns with relative ease by car. We would highly recommend this home for a relaxing and enchanting visit.

Superb. Perfect location. Perfect villa.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, and I and our 7 month old son spent two lovely weeks in the villa in early November. The location was perfect for us. Short drive to many nearby cities, towns and villages such us Siena, Florence, San Gimignano etc. We sampled many of the wines available from the winery which was very convenient for us with a little one and the wine was great. Kitchen was great. Only thing missing for us was a microwave to heat up baby bottles but we improvised as you do when on holiday. The open plan layout of the kitchen, dining and living space was also perfect for us with my husband entertaining a tired baby at the end of the day and me cooking but not missing out on anything. Shower was great. Beds were very comfy. Laundry facilities was also great for a 2 week stay. There was heaps of tourist information available in the villa, including books for drives around Tuscany and where to eat. Was an added bonus and helped us with planning our days. Pantry was well stocked with some essentials and Lis provided a basket of fruit and eggs, milk, bread, butter and other essentials on our arrival which was very much appreciated and meant we didn't have to find a supermarket and drag our son around even more after arriving. Heating was good although a little expensive for us as i didnt want my son to be cold. We did have trouble with the internet connection on arrival but that was sorted in a few days and was not an issue for the rest of the trip. Lis was very accommodating and any questions were promptly answered. The villa is located on a winery with the owners house not far from the villa, this wasnt an issue for us but is something to be aware of. Unfortunately for us, the time of year we visited meant we missed out on late afternoon sun to sit outside and enjoy a wine as the sun had already gone down behind the hill by 3.30ish. But we still enjoyed a wine inside where we were nice and cosy. The town of radda was a few minutes drive away with some options for eating out and a Coop supermarket and couple local market shops. For those not used to shops closing in the afternoon, it pays to make sure your food and wine is organised before shops close at 1pm until 4pm. We travelled throughout Tuscany for a month and this is the one thing we struggled to get used to. We loved our stay and would stay again. We have some incredible memories of our first family holiday that will last a lifetime. Highly recommend staying here. Thank you Lis and Roberto!!

Great choice for comfort, atmosphere and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a week in June with our 2 young children. It was quite comfy, atmospheric, spacious and the yard and property were great for running around. The owners live very nearby on the property, but you are left alone to enjoy the property. The place was very clean and the kitchen incredibly well stocked. There was no A/C, but the solid stone walls, fact it is built into the side of the hill and breezes from the valley means we did not notice at all in the height of June. The views are fantastic over to Radda or across a valley of vineyards and olive groves. Radda was only a few minutes away which made for great convenience of grocery shopping, coffee, ice cream, and eating out. It is also well positioned to enjoy a number of Chianti highlights, restaurants and vineyards. And Siena is only 45mins away. Finally, Lis was very helpful, very responsive and accommodating of our needs, travelling with 2 kids.
