This renovated stone farmhouse is located in the fortified medieval hamlet of Volpaia, considered by some, one of the best remaining examples of its kind. The farmhouse enjoys a secluded position within the hamlet, ensuring complete privacy. Located 300 meters from the farmhouse you will find two restaurants, which offer seasonal menus featuring ingredients from the local farm. In addition to exploring the charming nearby towns, day trips include Siena, Florence and Pisa. A group of friends or a large family will enjoy the privacy and tranquility of this Chianti farmhouse.

Terrific! Everything worked, the villa was comfortable and very clean, and it was wonderful to be out in the countryside and simultaneously next to a substantially charming tiny village.
(1) The care, guidance and knowledge provided by the housekeeper, who also cooked us a first-class meal one night (2) being able to walk to and from the extraordinarily delightful Osteria Volpaia for dinner.
Well, it's a trivial thing, but the pool house blocked the view from the living room and outdoor dining table. The pool area itself was fine.
Radda is convenient, with a nice range of stores. It and a number of other nearby older towns are scenic, pleasant and historic. Everyone we met was friendly.
Nearby Events or Locales:
As mentioned, Volpaia is very close. Groceries and other supplies are a short drive away, in Radda.
Tips or Restaurants:
In Panzano, near the top of the hill at the end of town, Cantinetta Sassolini is a relatively new restaurant with marvelous fresh versions of regional cuisine. Casual and welcoming.
Directions were perfect.
