About the property

ISTRICI DI S.GIOVANNI

The property is located midway between Florence and Siena, about half an hour from both, surrounded by cypress and oak woods, olive and vineyards, and it dominates a little lonely valley. It is placed in one of the most wooded and well preserved parts of Chianti Classico area (renowned for its wines and food) between S.Donato in Poggio and Castellina in Chianti. The quiet atmosphere makes It easy to see roe-deers, even during daylight hours, istrici (a peculiar kind of porcupine introduced by the Romans, emblem of a 'Contrada' of Siena's Palio)squirrels, birds, hedgehogs....

We rent two of our houses, a small villa and a bigger country house, totally separated from one another (they are on two different levels of the hill). Both houses, surrounded by the green, are fully restored and equipped. The Red House (unit 1019994) can accommodate 2 to 4 guests while and the Yellow House (unit 1228613) can welcome up to 8 people. The photos show both of the units; please pay attention to the descriptions.

Guests can also access our swimming pool: it is 83 square metres wide and open from the middle of April to the middle of October.

Rentals of two weeks or more will lead to a discount. Please email me for price.

N.B.: please check the last paragraph (bottom of rates page) for additional charges (utilities and stay tax).

About Stefano Baldi Lanfranchi

We produce wine and olive oil, following the rules of organic farming, electricity comes from renewable energy. We speak english, french, german, dutch, danish and of course italian.

Why Stefano Baldi Lanfranchi chose 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.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Preživeli smo čudovite počitnice v krasni hiši sredi narave! Že pri rezervaciji je potekalo vse brez zapletov in s hitrimi odgovori lastnika. Za dobrodošlico sta nas pričakali dve steklenici čudovitega vina. Hiša je krasna, lastnik prijazen, lokacija čudovita... Hvala še enkrat! Priporočamo!

A piece of heaven in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Stefano's place was a small piece of heaven. Tastefully decorated, it's situated 'off grid' in a lovely part of Tuscany. Surrounded by woods, olive groves and vineyards, our children loved to play in the outdoors. Stefano was accommodating and kind. We would love to go back and stay longer!

Een goed gevoel!

  • 5 of 5

Wij genoten van een liefelijke en charmante streek, logeerden in een gezellig en zeer smaakvol ingericht huis! De locatie is een eind van de straat gelegen en daardoor ook heel rustig. Nochtans is er op een 3-tal km mogelijkheid om handelszaken te bereiken.

Er was een groot en net zwembad, waar ook de huurders die in het kleinere rode huis logeerden, van genoten. De huizen zijn zodanig gesitueerd dat er voldoende privacy is.

De gereserveerde en vriendelijke eigenaar was erg bezorgd over de rugklachten van mijn echtgenoot. Dit gaf ons dan ook een goed gevoel.

Dus, een vakantieverblijf om aan te bevelen! En, later nogmaals over te doen!

Magnifique experience

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit. Cadre magnifique et maison très bien entretenue par le propriétaire. La propriété est située en plein campagne avec le sentiment d’être isolé du monde tout en étant à proximité des villes comme Sienne (30 min), Florence (30 min) ou Castellina in Chianti (15 min)

Stefano le propriétaire nous a réservé un excellent accueil avec vin rouge et huile d’olive comme cadeaux de bienvenue. Encore une fois vivement recommandé et un grand merci pour Stefano.
