Overview

Tavarnelle Val di Pesa Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Apartments with independent entrances and pergolas in the heart of Tuscany

“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.

About Sonia Macconi

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.

Sonia Macconi purchased this farmhouse in 1991

a wonderful family and farm in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The location is wonderful. It is in rolling hill country with vineyards, olive orchards, and centuries’ old stone houses dotting the landscape. The grounds around the house and farm buildings is immaculately groomed with flowers, bushes, etc. Our apartment (we stayed in Legnaia) was simple but clean, pleasant and functional. It has terracotta floors and stone exterior walls. Even during 90 degree days we could shut the windows and stay comfortable, and then open them up again in the evening to cool down the apartment. The beds were very basic, but comfortable. Both bedrooms had chests of drawers that were adequate. The rooms are too small for a sitting chair or desk. The kitchen, dining area, and sitting area are all in one medium size room. The dining table seated four. The kitchen had a four burner gas stove and a microwave, but no oven or toaster oven. There was a small full-size refrigerator/freezer, but no dishwasher. But it was sufficient that we cooked all our dinners in the kitchen. There is an old style drying rack in the cupboard next to the sink. The bathroom has a shower stall, toilet, bidet and sink. It is small but functional. Although the apartment is quite small, two small terracotta patios have arbors provide shade above them (but no roof to provide shelter from rain). One patio had seating for two. Franco and Sonia, the owners, are delightful, as is their son Daniele who gave us the tour of the wine cellar. They gave us free samples of several wines which ranged from very good to excellent. The entire farm provides a deep sense of serenity and harmony between man and nature. This is a very special place, lovingly cared for. Yes, it would be nice to have larger apartments with more amenities, but it was a tradeoff I was more than happy to make. I will never forget the week our family spent there.

Wonderful stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay with Sonia, Franco and family at Il Bacio (The Kiss) in Tuscany. We stayed in the Pergola apartment for 6 nights. The room was comfortable with a nice view, a small living room and kitchen area and an outside terrace with table and chairs. Four family cats would come to visit with us at various times (we had bought some treats for them at the local supermarket) and Agata the family dog was a cuddly giant. Their two donkeys (Nucia and Violetta) loved to eat as much stale bread as you would give to them.

Il Bacio has 30 acres and makes organic wine, and has olive and walnut trees. Franco will give you a tour of his winery and also give you tips for sightseeing. His tip for parking in Sienna was a godsend.

You really need a car if you want to see the sights. We went to Pisa, Luca, Volterra, Sienna, Greve in Chianti, San Gimignano and several other amazing places. Strongly recommend a GPS as it makes the driving so easy - lots of lovely back roads through amazing countryside. After Il Bacio we went to stay in Florence for 4 nights - no car needed once there.

Il Bacio is a couple of miles from Tavernelle where you can find the local Coop supermarket. They have a really nice grappa di moscato for seven euros!

Thank you Sonia and Franco for making our stay so memorable.

La location tout aussi parfaite,une ancienne ferme réaménagée avec grand gout. Et cerise sur la gateau, nos hotes, Franco et Sonia sont d une gentilesse et d une disponibilité irreprochable. Encore merci à eux pour leur acceuil.

The family farm Il Bacio is located in the heart of Tuscany, nestled in gently sloping hills covered in vineyards and olive groves, typical of the Chianti region, a unique territory known for its landscapes, history, food and wine.

Il Bacio is the ideal base for exploring all of the main Tuscan cities of art. Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, is only 30 minutes away. Siena, medieval jewel, can be reached in less than 40 minutes. San Gimignano, with its medieval towers, is 30 minutes away. Pisa, with the wonderful Miracles Square and Leaning Tower, and Lucca, with its splendid walls, are within a one-hour drive. Pienza, Renaissance jewel, and Montalcino and Montepulciano, with their world-renowned wines, are a little more than one hour away. Finally, the picturesque Cinque Terre are around two hours by car.

The closest town is Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, which is 3 Km away and where there are numerous stores and various types of restaurants.

Surrounding our farm there are numerous charming medieval villages, such as Barberino Val d’Elsa and Greve in Chianti. Last, but not least, around us there are several foot and bike paths of remarkable panoramic and architectural interest.
