Castellina In Chianti Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 10, Min Beds: 10, Double Beds: 5, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 6, Reference: 13724

Located in the heart of the Chianti, this farmhouse is situated on a beautiful and renowned wine estate that offers more than the typical Tuscan experience. Not only are there panoramic views of the rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, but there is also the perk of being able to taste wine produced right on the estate. Throughout your stay you will be welcomed by an extremely helpful staff at the reception who can assist you or make recommendations for activities during your trip to Italy.

This farmhouse dates back to the early 16th century and was used as an ancient oratory. It is situated in a position that offers beautiful countryside views. It is situated on an estate that features a garden, terrace with a table and chairs, and a private swimming pool (7m x 14m). An unpaved but well-maintained road of 200 meters leads to the property and parking is available within the grounds.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Villa Adelina was a relaxing and beautiful location. The rooms were large enough for all, and the furniture was classic. Beams in the ceilings made for a nice ambiance.

Enjoyed Most:

The swimming pool with a view is breathtaking!

The water was a bit cool, but we enjoyed sitting by pool in the sunshine, admiring the scenery.

The outside views were lovely.

Enjoyed Least:

The doors locked and unlocked with some difficulty.

The driveway could use more gravel as rain washed out parts of it.

Surrounding Area:

We enjoyed Castellina in Chianti...the shopping, and the people were just so friendly.

We frequented the gelato place (red building on outskirts of town) often. Just driving around and enjoying the Tuscan countryside was great. We also went to Siena and Cortona, both nice areas.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina Chianti...no, but it was only 10-15 minutes to drive.

Tips or Restaurants:

We enjoyed the restaurant that was about a mile from the villa,

La Casina di Lilliano.

We had trouble finding parking in Castellina for the restaurants there or we would have eaten there.

Parking in any of the small towns was challenging.

Directions:

We used a GPS but the address was not detailed enough to find the winery where we were to check in.

It was raining and phone reception was poor, plus language barriers made it difficult to connect with host. But we got there!

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our party of 10 adults had plenty of room, bedrooms with private baths, common areas for every taste (indoor/outdoor), and the ability to do things all together or find some private, peaceful time in the house and on the property.

Enjoyed Most:

Setting was beautiful, peaceful, and conducive to relax and enjoy the property and great pool, yet close enough to hill towns, Siena and Florence to make half day excursions for site seeing and wine tasting.The staff was very responsive when we had an issue and visited regularly to clean up a bit.

Enjoyed Least:

Could have had more seating on the patio outside the kitchen as well as the outside patio off of the second floor...didn't use those areas because of the lack of seating, but they were beautiful. The home was well stocked, except for plastic cups that could be used to enjoy a glass of wine at the pool.

Surrounding Area:

The property was not far from the highway between Florence and Siena, yet isolated so that all one heard were birds and an occasional tractor working the nearby farms. The views from he property were breathtaking.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti was the closest town, and although not within walking distance, very easy to reach quickly. It had wonderful shops and restaurants.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring a GPS and enter the coordinates. The written directions get you so close, but make it impossible to find the exact spot without a couple of phone calls (I'd be happy to modify the directions). The property had towels to use at the pool, and was very well equipped for 10. The highlights of our dining experiences included having Dora (a local chef) come to the villa and cook dinner for us on two occasions. Besides renting this villa it was the best decision we made. Her meals were authentic, delicious, and bountiful and reasonable. Next time we'll have her every other night.

Check In Out:

Once we finally connected, they made it very easy...just wish the person who met us to walk us through and should us how to use everything spoke English...our Italian is limited and we never did figure out how to get certain things working...yet it was a wonderful, memorable week.

Overall:

Overall our experience was memorable and we truly enjoyed our stay.

Enjoyed Most:

The views, spacious, private.

Surrounding Area:

The beauty, peacefulness, and privacy.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monteriggioni - 10 minute drive and Castellina in Chianti - 15 minute drive

For a memorable dining experience close by - Ristorante Albergaccio in Castellina in Chianti.

Directions:

Directions were good but going there for the first time a landmark of some sort would be helpful.

Scenery, views, solitude.

Nearby Events or Locales:

San Castellina - not within walking distance

The directions were perfect. We did not use a GPS.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

We had a very enjoyable time. Villa Adelina is a charming rustic farmhouse in a lovely quiet location, about a fifteen minute drive from Castellina in Chianti. Our stay was from September 13 - 20, 2014, so we did not use the pool. Even though there are no screens on the windows, bugs were never a problem.

Enjoyed Most:

The beautiful peaceful setting. The rustic charm of the building. The large kitchen. The proximity to Castellina in Chianti. The house was clean and the grounds were well-maintained. Plus, there's plenty of space for anyone who wants to find time to be alone. The free wi-fi was a bonus and it worked well!

Enjoyed Least:

The driveway is in poor condition. You need a vehicle with high clearance to negotiate it, so it deterred us from going out in the evenings.

The villa has rooms we never used--like the study. It would have suited us better to have a larger living room, but we solved the problem by moving one of the couches from the study to the living room.

The bathroom towels are thin, the kitchen lighting is poor, and there are no sharp knives. Editor's Note: New, high quality bath towels have been provided. October, 2014

Surrounding Area:

Castello Brolio, the wine festival in Greve. The towns of Greve, Panzano, Radda, Volpaia and Vertine. Volterra and San Gimignano can be done in a day trip. (It's best to go to San Gimignano first thing in the morning.) We also visited Lucca (1 12 hours away). An interesting town, though their market was a disappointment. Siena was an easy day trip.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti is about a fifteen-minute drive. It's a great little town to explore, plus it has a "COOP" supermarket and fabulous butcher shop. There's nothing within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

The towels are thin, but if you won't be using the pool, use the pool towels as bathroom towels. Editor's Note: New, high quality bath towels have been provided. October, 2014.

The kitchen was stocked with dishwasher and liquid detergent, sponges, coffee filters and paper towels. There was plenty of toilet paper, but you'll need to bring (or buy) any spices you plan to use, including salt and pepper. There were no sharp knives in the kitchen. You'll also need your own shampoo, body soap, etc.

We had a lovely meal at Cantina Squarcialupi in Castellina. We also had Dora cook for us. The price was very reasonable, but it would have

Map

The property is located five kilometers from Castellina in Chianti where there are a good number of shops, restaurants, and markets as well as a pharmacy, post office, and tourist information center. Known for its great wines, Castellina in Chianti is a medieval village that was once on the front lines of the wars between Florence and Siena.
