Why Gelli chose Castellina In Chianti
Our surrounding countryside is the ideal place to enjoy nature in peace and quiet, relax, walk or trek the ancient Via Romea which crosses our property. Here you can admire the beautiful scenery over the Val d’elsa and see in the distance the towers of San Gimignano and the surrounding hills of Monteriggioni, Colle Val d’elsa and Casole d’elsa. Florence is 45 minutes by car and Siena 25 minutes. There is much to do and see in this area and the property is ideally situated to explore Chianti and beyond. A 15 minute walk takes you into the town of Castellina where you will find shops and galleries, many very good restaurants, pizzerias and cafès, a supermarket, winecellars and excellent icecream. The town itself is lovely to explore and there are many organised events which we will let you know about in advance. The area has many very good wineries to visit and partake in winetasting and we can organise winetours with pick up and drop off here on the property. These tours take in 2 or more wineries and include lunch or dinner for a very good price.
What makes this Barn unique
The result of this work is a harmonious and comfortable enviroment which provides three apartments selectly decorated with traditional rural tuscan furnishings. The restoration that has been done is in bio edilizia or ecologically restored using only ecological materials so that the house and apartments breathe. The setting is such that there are stunning views over the surrounding valleys and Tuscan countryside. While we are close to the town center we are also a very quiet and tranquill spot where one can relax and enjoy the Tuscan surroundings.

Perfect Chianti refuge
This property is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty and serenity of Chianti. Roomy comfortable apartment with a patio of its own and plenty of peace and quiet in the gorgeous Chianti countryside. Just a short distance outside Castellina in Chianti, which besides being incredibly charming also has many conveniences like a market, laundromat, good restaurants and shops. Combine all this with a gracious hostess (Linda) and you have the makings of a perfect Chianti refuge. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful spot
We loved our stay at Godenano di Mezzo. Linda was very accommodating, and the apartment is gorgeous. Beautifully decorated with attention to every detail, very comfortable bed, lovely views of the valley below and the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. It was a pleasure to do laps in the pool after a day out in the countryside, then kick back with a glass of Chianti Classico and enjoy the view. Linda shared some of her garden tomatoes and their own olive oil, which was delicious. She also arranged a wine tour to small local wineries which we loved. Very near the sweet town of Castellina, and an easy drive to/from Florence and Siena. Highly recommend!
Glad that Bonnie and Rich enjoyed themselves here and made the most of their vacation in Chianti.
We are very central to many of the cultural and picturesque places of interest in Tuscany and one can alternate the bigger attractions and small towns and then head back for a relax by the pool or in the garden.
Hope to see you both back here again one day.
Great location for driving throughout Tuscany
We stayed here for 7 nights. Beautiful location and nice pool. We drove to many locations around Tuscany. It was great for day trips to Tuscany, Siena etc.
We had a wonderful time! The property is beautiful, surrounded by vineyards and olive tree orchards. The owners were super friendly always available to answer our questions and had lots of great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. There is a really delicious gelato place walking distance from the farmhouse.
Lovely family and would be happy to have them back. Our German shepherd Otto and Madam Brisè our young cat miss them all. Our pets never missed a moment in the pool with them all. Not literally, but the kept them all entertained.
We had a lovely stay at Godenano di Mezzo in Castellina in Chianti. Beautiful views, convenient location, clean accommodations and Linda was very helpful in her local recommendations. Communication was great throughout booking process. The property is very close to town which has great restaurants and is a great starting point for several day trips including Siena and Florence. First trip to Tuscany but hopefully not the last!
We enjoyed having Demetra and Nicholas to stay here. They made the most of their time exploring the area and look forward to having them back here in the future.
Great place to stay
Stayed for a week, it was a great location for us to experience Chianti and also take day trips to Florence and Sienna!
