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 Chianti Senese

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.

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.

Wunderschöne Spätsommertage in Val delle Corti

  • 5 of 5

Auch wir können uns den lobenden Worten unserer Vorbewerter uneingeschränkt anschließen.

Die Capanna mit der grossen Terasse war uns für die beiden Wochen ein Quartier mit Character, Flair und Ambiente.

Die Aussicht über das Tal ist wunderschön und je nach Tageszeit immer abwechselnd. Ein feines Stückchen Toskana.

Auch wir waren erfreut über die Erstausstattung an Lebens und Genußmitteln.

Lis und Roberto sind freundliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber und haben uns mit guten Tips der lokalen Gastronomie sowie den möglichen Unternehmungen in der Umgebung versorgt. Im Haus steht auch jede Menge Literatur zur Verfügung.

Sehr gut gefallen und geschmeckt hat es uns im La Bottega im nahegelegenen Volpaia.

Der samstägliche Wochenmarkt in Greve sollte unbedingt mit auf die Ausflugliste.

Interessant war auch den Anfang der Weinlese auf einem kleinen aber feinen Weingut zu erleben. Wir hoffen die Ernte hat das gehalten, was Roberto prognostiziert hatte. Der frische Traubensaft und junge Most haben jedenfalls gut gemundet.

Von unserer Seite können wir die Capanna guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen und vergeben gerne alle Bewertungssterne. Die Beschreibung und die Bilder entsprechen dem Objekt und geben eine guten Eindruck wieder, der von der Realität noch übertroffen wird.

Die Abwicklung war ebenfalls einwandfrei und für uns, die nicht dem italienischen mächtig sind, sehr bequem in deutsch.

Cordiali Saluti von Petra & Werner die sich ebenfalls gut vorstellen können, wiederzukommen.

Bellissima

  • 5 of 5

Eine herrliche Woche im Chianti! Lis und Roberto sind wunderbare Gastgeber: entspannt, hilfsbereit, humorvoll!

Ein perfektes Haus für vier Personen. Alles gut durchdacht und vor allem, alles funktioniert bestens: Herd, Backofen, Warmwasser, Dusche und vor allem auch die Heizung - die braucht man dann Ende Oktober abends doch schon mal, auch wenn das Wetter tagsüber noch wunderbar war. Vielleicht wäre, so als Anregung, ein Kamin noch schön, denn die Abende muss man zu dieser Zeit schon drinnen verbringen.

Im Haus ist alles sehr geschmackvoll aufeinander abgestimmt, Atmosphäre bringen vor allem die Holzbalken der Decken und der schöne ziegel- bis sandsteinfarbene Natursteinboden.

Sehr schön auch die Naturstein-Terrasse und die Wiese davor mit Blick über Olivenhaine, Weinberge, Wälder und Hügel ... insgesamt ein Ort, der erdet und im positiven Sinne "runterholt".

Sehr erfreulich auch die Grundausstattung an ersten Lebensmitteln - vielen Dank dafür!!!

Wir kommen wieder!

Hervorragendes und familiär geführtes Ferienhaus, tolle Lage und exzellente Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden außerordentlich freundlich empfangen und haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Die Atmosphäre ist sehr familiär und das hat uns gut gefallen. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen und der Inhalt des Kühlschranks für die ersten Tage hat uns mehr als überrascht.

Vielen Dank besonders auch an Elli, ohne deren nächtlich geernteter Rosmarin und Salbei unser Bistecca nur halb so gut geschmeckt hätte :-)

Wenn wir wieder in die Toskana reisen, wissen wir schon wohin!

Nochmals Danke für die schöne Zeit,

herzlich,

Michael und Betti, Koblenz

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

vincent Schulz

in der letzten Woche-Bearbeiten

Im Juni 2016 waren wir 3 Erw. für 2 Wochen zu Gast im Val delle Corti.

Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr willkommen gefühlt.

Zu unserer Ankunft war für alles gesorgt: Brot, Marmelade, Kaffee, Milch, Wasser, Brot, Obst und den hauseigenen leckeren Wein.

Das Haus war sauber, angenehm kühl, die Schlafräume groß und die Betten sehr bequem.

Die Küche war mit allem was Frau/ Mann so braucht ausgestattet.

So konnten wir uns nach unserer Ankunft sofort auf der tollen Terasse bei einem Glas Wein von der langen Autofahrt erholen, und mussten nicht noch einkaufen fahren.

Das war Klasse!

Und es kommt noch besser.

Der Ausblick von unserer Terasse war so schön das wir ihn jeden Tag neu genossen haben.

Am Abend konnten wir tolle Sonnenuntergänge sehen und jede Menge Glühwürmchen.

Die Nähe zu Florenz, Sienna, Arezzo, Volterra, San Gimingnano und und und ... macht diesen Urlaub auch zu einem schönen Kulturerlebnis.

Besucht haben wir auch die Märkte in der Umgebung, dort kann man von Obst, Gemüse, Fisch, und Haushaltswaren auch Taschen, Schuhe, Kleidung, Perlen auch Bett/ Tischwäsche und Stoffe, kaufen.

Im Ort Radda gibt es einige Cafes, Eisdielen Restaurants, Roller- Verleih,

Wir haben nur wenige besucht - alle sind zu empfehlen.

Die Geschäfte dort sind gut sortiert und preislich, wie auch in den anderen Städten gleich.Die Spezialitäten der Toscana sollte man in jedem Fall probieren.

Für den täglichen Bedarf gibt es einen günstigen Coop

Einzig das Brot, egal wo gekauft- schmeckt nach nichts.

Allerdings gibt es in Montevachi einen Lidl der wie in Deutschland Ciabatta und Baguette u.s.w. verkauft.

Die Gegend im Chiantital ist einfach fantastisch!

Man fährt von einem Tal über den Berg ins nächste Tal, viele, viele Kurven.

Wein und Olivenfelder, Sonnenblumen und Mohnfelder.

Und natürliche der liebe Haushund Hugo, ein kräftiger, sanfter Schatz.

Wir kommen sicher nochmal ins Chianti-Tal--- schön zu wissen wohin.
