Honeymoon in Chianti

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from the honeymoon of a lifetime in Italy, 7 days of which were spent in the "Falco" apartment which was heaven on Earth. Linda was so wonderful and greeted us as if we were already friends. The apartment was so cool with it's authentic feel and wonderful views. It was a great place to come back and relax after walking through Siena and San Gimignano. The private entrance was nice and it had everything we needed for the week. Castellina in Chianti was a lovely town that we ate dinner in each night - all the restaurants were amazing! Using Godenano as a starting out point, Linda gave us some great tips on traveling in the countryside as well as places to visit. My husband made friends with Otto and Leone quickly and we miss them as well as Linda already! We will definitely come back to explore the areas we missed on our first trip. Thank you Linda and family for you amazing hospitality and your beautiful piece of paradise!

Absolutely Perfect Historic Property with All Amenities, Fabulous Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Falco apartment for a week in May. The property was absolutely immaculate, and very thoughtfully supplied with everything we needed. Linda's gardens were spectacular with beautiful flowers and vegetables in profusion. The weather was cool, so we didn't get to use the pool, but it, too, was perfectly kept. Our bed was very comfortable, and the views from our windows over the olive trees and across the valley were something we'll always remember! In short, a beautiful place with a gracious hostess, with easy access to Sienna, Florence, and many historic hill towns. The village of Castellina in Chianti is a steep walk up the hill, and well worth the effort- we had two delicious meals in town, and the local gelato spot is a stand-out! We would definitely love to return!

We are a couple in our 70's who found the apartment Rosemarino as lovely and comfortable as represented in the photos. All reservation and payment requirements were completed professionally and in a timely manner. The mattress and pillows were so welcoming after a hot day of touring in the area. Linda is nothing short of amazing! She is the perfect hostess, anticipating our every need, sharing her time and knowledge of the area at any opportune moment while respecting our privacy and personal space. She offered suggestions, directions and honest opinions of the tourist attractions available. She even shared with us, her attempts to save the lives of 4 newly born hedgehogs found abandoned in her driveway. The pool/spa area is well maintained and available from morning to late evening. The only suggestion I might make is that plastic glasses be provided so guests can enjoy a glass of wine while reading poolside.

A beautiful stone farmhouse became our perfect home for almost a week

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 16 year old son, and I spent 6 nights in the Falco (Falcon) apartment in July. It's on the first floor, which in the US means the second floor. It's a spacious, sparkling clean 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (1 ensuite), kitchen, and living room. There is also a lovely outside area with a picnic table just for those in the Falco apt. and a gas grill that looks brand new.

Opening the windows allows in the magnificent views of the Chianti region: olive trees, vineyards, and the endless hills. With the open windows one also fully comprehends the width of the ancient stone farmhouse walls. This farmhouse is a treasure and a working farm, so it is a joy to use (and take home) their very own olive oil.

The apartment was filled with anything one would need in the kitchen: utensils, plates, bowls, wine glasses, dishwasher, drying towels, utensils for the grill. We enjoyed making bruschetta every morning and one night my husband made a tasty dinner from items in the town, which we happily ate outside in our little piece of the Tuscan countryside.

The pool is absolutely incredible: so clean and positioned so the Tuscan landscape surrounds one and one can happily gaze about either while swimming or sitting in the comfortable lounge chairs. The thick bath and pool towels are also a nice touch.

We appreciated the location, between Siena and Florence, and had lovely times exploring both cities and the surrounding hill towns and restaurants. The town of Castellina in Chianti itself is a gem: delicious restaurants specializing in local fare, produce markets, cheese shops, wineries, butchers, and little cafes perfect for a morning cappuccino.

We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.

Outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Lavanda apartment for 6 nights at the end of April/beginning of May. We had such a wonderful stay! The property is beautiful with the kind of views of Tuscany that you see on postcards. The online photos really don't do it justice. The apartment itself was very spacious and well kept. It had all the amenities we required for a comfortable stay. The town of Castellina is a short walk away with a good selection of lovely shops and restaurants. We found the farmhouse to be an excellent location from which to explore the region.

Linda was an incredibly gracious host who's recommendations for activities and places to eat never steered us wrong! We also made two four-legged friends, Otto and Leone. We would definitely recommend this farm house to family and friends and are eager to return ourselves! Thank you Linda for sharing your bit of Italy with us!

Very Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 nights in the Rosemary apartment in late September/early October, and it was a great experience. The apartment is spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped, and the views from the patio are outstanding. The town of Castellina is very handy for restaurants and food, and the location is convenient for day trips to the many scenic hill towns in the area. We especially grateful to Linda and Gilberto for their help when we had a problem with our car. We highly recommend this accommodation.
