Why Stefano Baldi Lanfranchi chose Barberino Val D'elsa
Despite the private setting, the cities of Florence and Siena are easily reachable by car with a 40 minutes ride. You can bike or drive to the numberless charming hamlets, small villages, churches, castles, panoramic spots of Chianti nearby, wander in the woods. In addition some examples of what the surroundings have to offer are: S.Gimignano, with the well known tower-houses; S.Appiano; the palaces of Colle Val d'Elsa, birthplace of Arnolfo di Cambio, the architect of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence; Certaldo, where Boccaccio, the author of Decameron, lived; the fortress of Monteriggioni; just a little farther away you can reach the etruscan city of Volterra; Montalcino, worldwide famous for “Brunello” wine production and Val d’Orcia; the area of thermal hot springs of which Bagno Vignoni, the setting of many scenes from the film Nostalghia by film director Tarkovskij, is a beautiful representation; Pienza, magnificent example of the Renaissance 'città ideale’; the sea in Cecina…
What makes this House unique
The property is extremely quiet since the nearest country road is 1.1 km far, our closest neighbours live at 1.5 km distance. Nonetheless, the village of S.Donato in Poggio (4 km) will provide you with most of the things you might need during your stay. There you will find a well supplied small supermarket (also open on Sunday mornings), a pharmacy, a bank, a post office, restaurants, bars, a bakery and other shops.

La proprietà è bellissima, perfetta e razionale negli interni, con divisione zona notte e giorno: piano di sopra zona notte (3 camere da letto e 2 bagni) e sotto bellissima zona giorno con salotto e pranzo (con bellissimo camino) cucina e altro bagno. Noi eravamo 2 famiglie con bambini e siamo stati splendidamente. Tutta la casa ha finestre sull' incantevole bosco e sui colli circostanti. Il salotto ha due enormi finestre da cui si gode un panorama rilassante. Gli interni sono curatissimi e nel più puro stile toscano, dal cotto agli armadi.
La proprietà si trova in posizione perfetta per visitare praticamente tutta la Toscana: Firenze e Siena a mezz'ora ma anche Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza e altre bellezze toscane visitabili tranquillamente in giornata. La zona in cui si trova la casa è di per sé un gioiello, e il Chianti è a disposizione in qualunque direzione si vada. Davvero un soggiorno splendido.
Beautiful, Peaceful Retreat
We loved our 5 night stay in the Yellow House. The property is rural and feels a million miles away but is a great location for exploring Florence, Sienna and the countryside of Tuscany.
The house is well equipped with all that you'll need. Mostly we went out to dinner but the nights we stayed in the kitchen allowed us to prepare simple meals.
The outdoor space is beautiful, it was a little too cool for us to use the pool but the pool area is wonderful. Amazing views all around you.
The bedrooms were pretty and the bathrooms clean and modern. The mattress in our room was very comfortable. The house was big enough for the five of us, though the living room is on the small side. When the weather is nice, this doesn't matter as you'll be using the outside areas more than inside.
Stefano was responsive and answered all of our questions, gave us great recommendations and provided us with wine from his vineyard.
If we return to this area, we would stay again!
Lovely place, located in one of the rare forest landscapes of Tuscany. Centrally located between Florence and Siena (about 30 minutes drive in high season) in the heart of Chianti Classico District.
There is a good equipment for cooking for a family. The two bedrooms with the king size beds are very comfortable. The room with the four beds for children is small but enough. The swimming pool was great and the children had much fun.
The owner was very polite and extremly helpful to turn good into exceptionell holiday. His recommendations for restaurants were very useful.
Vacances en Toscane
Très belle maison dans un immense domaine. La villa est très bien située pour visiter la Toscane. Elle est à 7kms de la voie rapide (gratuite) entre Florence et Sienne. La villa est très bien équipée avec 3 grandes chambres et 3 salles de bain. Il y a un chemin qui permet de desservir la grande piscine à la vue magnifique autour. Enfin, Stefano le propriétaire, est très courtois, il répond très rapidement aux messages et en Français ! Merci à lui et à son très bon vin ;-)
A very good mix of privacy, comfort, beatifull countryside combined with many possibilities of sightseeing trips plus good local food and wine. Very relaxing, suitable for families.
