Overview

About the property

(Text automatically translated) The apartment is a nice quiet village on top of a hill in the Chianti area which overlooks a landscape of olive groves, vineyards and woods. The village is located in a protected area by the WWF where cypress trees grow wild. The structural features of a typical country has been scrupulously respected, creating a unique atmosphere of the past. The oldest part is the tower in 1100 AD There are two large parking lots to the village and there are no cars on the streets small, except that the loading / unloading of luggage. At guests' disposal and shared with the other inhabitants of the village, we have a fully enclosed swimming pool (12x6m depth. 1.50m) and a tennis court (fenced) concrete.

Great vacation in an ancient and quiet environment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the stay at the former farmhouse. It is very quiet to which you have to take a two-mile dusty two-track from the windy Tuscan mountain road. But the view and the quietness really make up for it. Rarely do we have the opportunity to see that many stars on the night sky since there are too many city lights around us.

The proximity to Poggibonsi with a larger supermarket and Castellina in Chianti with good restaurants and smaller markets is also very convenient. And you are close to both Florence and Siena as well as the tourist destinations of San Giminiano and Volterra. All of those can be reached within an hour or less driving time while being away from the hustle, smell and volume of Italian cities.

Don't forget to visit some of the great wineries in the Chianti area which are very close to the property - it is surrounded by vineyards! And for food aficionados there is the famous butchery of Dario Cecchini in Panzano you will want to visit. He has some great Sushi di Chianti you may want to try and will sell you some of the famous bistecca Fiorentina (the Tuscan Porterhouse) with two days pre-ordering. For pizza lovers the two restaurants in the pedestrian zone of Castellina in Chianti provide you with outstanding pies the Italian way.

All-in-all we enjoyed our stay in the remodeled farmhouse. Please be aware that during the summer months it does get quite hot in Tuscany. We encountered days of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and there is no air conditioning in the farmhouse!

Massimiliano and Veronica took care of us and helped us when we forgot to take the key to the main door which can only be opened with a key from the outside. Thanks a lot for the hospitality!

(Text automatically translated) From the A1 (Milan - Rome) Exit at Firenze Certosa and take the Firenze - Siena towards Siena. Exit at Poggibonsi Nord and proceed towards the city center of Poggibonsi. After 2km turn left towards Castellina in Chianti. Stay on this road for 8 km until you come to a large cellar of the wine producer Melini. After the cellar, take the first road on the left. The property is accessed through 1.7 km of unpaved road in good condition, only the last stretch near the village is very steep and a sign on the side of the road should use the first gear.
