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.

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!
Best place to stay at Tuscany!!!
Me and my husband just fell in love with this place!! It’s super clean, lovely decorated, the house and gardens are beautiful!! But the best of all is Linda and Gilberto, the hosts, they are the nicest people you’ll ever meet!! They gave us tips on where to go and what to do, and Linda shared us some fresh tomatoes, basil, rosemary and olive oil from her garden. It truly was an amazing experience, I left my heart there. Also, the property is very close to the lovely town of Castellina in Chianti, and also we were able to drive to some other medieval and beautiful towns as Siena, San Giminiano, Montepulciano, Montalcino, among others. (You will need a car to do this) the roads to all these towns are AMAZING!! You’ll get some of the best Tuscan views. We definitely will be back to this place!!!
Carolina and Leopoldo are a lovely couple and our first experience with Messican guests. They made the most of their time here with us and visited many beautiful towns all within an hour and a half drive. There is so much to do and see here all within easy reach which allows for a swim and relax in our big pool before dinner either here or in one of the many very good restaurants in town.
We look forward to having you both back here again one day.
Apartment with a view
My husband and I enjoyed three relaxing nights in this apartment on our drive through Tuscany. The Rosmarino room was spacious and comfortable with a great patio overlooking the valley below. Linda was kind enough to share some lovely produce from their garden and made sure we had everything we needed. Afternoons at the pool felt very refreshing after mornings sightseeing. We also enjoyed some lovely meals in Castellina in Chianti and an excellent gelateria down the street.
Being so easily accessible to so many different places of cultural interest : Florence and Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra to name a few plus the countryside of Chianti to explore, it is easy to day trip and then return here to relax and swim or have a hydromassage in our large pool overlooking the valley. The gelato is just a short 15 minute walk from here and it is truly Divine. Any time you would like to come back here guys you are always welcome. Best wishes.
Best part of our Italy trip!
Linda was a great hostess. She made us feel right at home. The apartment had tons of charm but still had all the creature comforts. The garden on the property was beautiful as well as the views. The location is great & was perfect for our home base as we explored Tuscany. Linda arranged a wine tasting tour for us that was spectacular!
We enjoy having guests to stay and to have the opportunity to give them a guide to this beautiful area and to experience Tuscan hospitality. There is much to do and see and our location is such that we are central to the main cultural towns and cities within the hour. Wine tastings, cooking courses and more can easily be arranged for guests.
The PERFECT Place to Fill Your Senses and Explore Tuscany
From the first email with Linda, and throughout the entire stay at beautiful Godenano di Mezzo, our expectations were exceeded. The blend of professionalism and warmth that Linda exhibits makes an amazing place to stay even better. Two of us stayed in the Lavanda suite, which was absolutely perfect. From the spectacular view and sunsets, to the beautiful gardens, orchards, sweet Otto, Leone, the falcons... my senses were filled the entire time. The nearby small town of Castellina is perfectly charming and filled with just enough good restaurants and stores that, although you'll want to explore all of Tuscany from this ideal location, you wouldn't need to leave the area if you didn't want to. This is a life enriching experience that I relive everytime I taste the delicious olive oil produced from the property. Thank you for everything!
Thank you for your lovely review. You have summed Godenano up perfectly. It is a great satisfaction to know that we have been able to share this beautiful part of the world with you and that what we set out to do which is to provide a place where our guests can relax, unwind, eat, explore and enjoy. Best wishes and we hope to have the pleasure of your company again one day.
Open from the end of March to January
