|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
This is an apartment on two levels in the ancient farmhouse, ideal for a couple with one or two children.
Restored in traditional Tuscan style, it has stone walls and red “cotto” pavement.
On the ground floor there is a living-room with a small kitchen area and a large, comfortable sofa-bed. On the second floor there is a large, double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
Outside the apartment there is a strawberry-grape pergola equipped for outdoor lunches and candlelight dinners.
“Il Bacio” Farm holiday is located in the heart of Chianti, surrounded by beautiful Tuscan hills covered with vineyards and olive groves.
The ancient farmhouse, the former barn and the wood-house have been carefully restored and tastefully furnished, preserving the original structure together with the characteristics of old Tuscan houses.
Each apartment has its own independent entrance, a beautiful panoramic view of the countryside, and a private outdoor space in the shade of a grape pergola and equipped for outdoor lunches and candlelight dinners.
At our family-farm there is a swimming-pool (12x6 meters), surrounded by a large garden facing the valley, from where it is possible to enjoy an enchanting view of the surrounding hills. Here each apartment has its own umbrella with deckchairs and sunbeds. In our swimming-pool, the water is slightly salted with no added chlorine, and thus more delicate for skin and eyes, in addition to the environmental benefits.
At “Il Bacio” we produce certified organic Chianti wine, grappa, and extra virgin olive oil. Franco and Daniele will be glad to welcome you to our ancient cellar to walk you through the main steps of the wine-making process and taste our organic wines alongside local specialties.
In 1991, Franco and Sonia, together with their sons Andrea and Daniele, moved from the city to the country-side, to the farm Il Bacio. A few years later Giulia arrived, followed recently by grandson Pietro.
Since the beginning, they devoted themselves with passion and dedication to organic farming, producing wine and olive oil.
In 1997, following a long renovation of the farmhouse, the barn and the wood-house, the farm-holiday opened.
The family welcomes you to Il Bacio, together with our sweet dog Agata and our two donkeys, Nuccia and Violetta.

We stayed in the Pergola apartment for 2 weeks. Il Bacio is in a tranquil and beautiful part of Chianti equal distance from Florence and Sienna. The owners Franco and Sonia are friendly and helpful and it was wonderful to be part of this organic vineyard for a short time. We loved the involvement with the family and the animals etc . The apartment is well furnished and clean with a small kitchenette, comfortable beds and wifi. There is a lovely pool with loungers for days when you've had enough sightseeing . if you want a genuine Italian experience in a peaceful and beautiful place then this is the place for you !
Franco & Sonia's accommodations were absolutely beautiful. It was SO CLEAN (we're sure the sheets were ironed) & comfortable & the view was breathtaking. Every morning Franco went into the village & bought us fresh bread. (It was AMAZING). When we arrived, Sonia offered to drive into the village to get us some groceries as we were very tired. So sweet!!!! And the bed was so comfy!!!!! We actually just enjoyed most of our stay relaxing at their place as it was just so beautiful. And Sonia was so helpful giving us a map & showing us which villages were a must to see. When we can come to Tuscany again, we would only stay with Franco & Sonia. It was that lovely. And their kitties come by daily to get their rubs & pets. So cute!!!! The village of Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa has everything you need & is only a 5 min drive away. And the people were so sweet & helpful when we were looking for a specific place. It was the most relaxing trip EVER.
We enjoyed a wonderful break in a great location, we were spoilt for choice for activities and sights to see. Lovely details and plenty of friendly animals too!!
Look forward to returning time and again.
Sonia and Franco were exceptional hosts. They were warm and inviting and very helpful with recommendations, local information, and making reservations. The apartment was spacious and very well equipped. The location made trips into the surrounding area of Tuscany very easy. The road in front of Il Bacio was excellent for early morning and evening strolls. We would definitely recommend a stay at Il Bacio.
Un grand merci à Sonia et Franco pour leur accueil, leur sympathie, leur disponibilité et leur hospitalité dans ce cadre merveilleux typique de la Toscane.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la dégustation du très bon vin et les échanges avec Sonia et Franco (les différents vins et l'huile d'olive sont excellents).
L' environnement du gîte est magnifique, la terrasse ombragée, la grande piscine d'eau salée avec transats privatifs est un atout indispensable en été.
La propriété est très bien entretenue, l'intérieur propre et la literie confortable. La fourniture du linge de maison (draps, nombreuses serviettes de toilette, et draps de bain pour la piscine) est très appréciable.
Il y a beaucoup de visites à faire dans les environs (San Gimignano, Voltera, Sienne, Florence, Lucques, Pise, etc).
Nous avons testé les pizzas de la Fornace à deux pas d'Il Bacio, et elles sont très bonnes.
Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir rendre visite à Sonia et Franco dans leur jolie demeure.
A bientôt, Virginie, Randolph et leurs enfants.
Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem Appartement und haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist ein wenig abseits gelegen aber sehr schön ruhig und mitten in der Natur. Nach einer kurzen Fahrt auf einer Schotterstraße erreicht man das Anwesen. Die Anlage war sehr schön und sehr gepflegt. Auch das Pool war sehr angenehm. Die Vermieter waren sehr gastfreundlich. Wir würden es jederzeit weiterempfehlen!
