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 Apartment in 1991

We enoyed Il Bacio wine and olive oil, walks along the country lane, and the nearby idyllic old Tuscan towns, including Tavernelle a few minutes drive from the farm.

Sonia and Franco are amazing people--so kind and gracious and very accommodating. Franco took the time from his Sunday "rest day" to give us a private tour of his vineyard and a wine tasting. Their organic wine is wonderful (we ordered a case to be sent home), and it was so nice to be able to purchase it for our meals while we were staying there. Italy was quite hot while we were there and the pool was so refreshing and a great place to relax. Our room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and we had all the amenities that we needed. We cooked many meals and enjoyed dinner on our private patio overlooking the pool and the Chianti countryside. Beautiful place, beautiful hosts and an incredible 6 days. We will definitely be back to stay at this wonderful place. Thank you Franco, Sonia and Daniele.

All accommodations were exactly as described - beautiful, clean and comfortable. The hospitality of Sonia and Franco exceeded all expectations. We were running very late and arrived after 10 PM. They waited for us and greeted us warmly and helped to get settled. We were after a long drive and did not have a supper, so they brought bread, cheese, salami and wine for us - all delicious.

                                                                      The place is conveniently located for travel to Florence, Sienna, Pisa and all places in between. Additionally, we are very grateful to our hosts for pointing us towards many small towns and medieval villages in the area that we had a great pleasure visiting.

The beds were comfortable and the unit had the perfect amount of space for us to enjoy an outside dinner one evening. It was an easy bus ride into Florence, and easy access to all of the chianti region. I would and probably will stay here again. This was our last stop on our Italian vacation, the perfect r way to soak in the beauty of the Tuscan culture and to close out our adventures, in a warm, relaxing environment.

                                                                      Beautiful farm house!

                                                                      Chere V.Sonora, Ca.

                                                                      Franco and Sonia's farm property is beyond words. The pictures on the VRBO site don't do this beautiful piece of paradise justice. It's a little piece of heaven. Franco and Sonia are so helpful when we needed ANYTHING! The fresh bread delivered each morning was such a treat.

                                                                      We just happen to be there during their first harvest of grapes on the farm and got to join in in the cutting of the grapes. It was the highlight of our trip. This family is so kind. I highly recommend this farm house to anyone.

                                                                      Just what we hoped it would be

                                                                      Sonia and Franco and their lovely family are so welcoming. The tour and wine tasting of their organic vineyard was very informative and their wine is just fabulous. We stayed in Il Fienile which is a 3 bedroom separate house and was comfortable and clean with everything available for kitchen use including a dishwasher which was very useful. We managed to sit out every night (although it was a bit chilly in the evenings) but I would recommend taking some citronella candles with you as the bugs were really biting (time of year perhaps). If we were going back to Chianti again we would certainly consider returning to Il Bacio. Certainly the description listed was accurate and the customer service was second to none. Some groceries were purchased for us for our arrival (at our request and payment) and Franco brought us fresh bread every morning (apart from Sundays) which was still warm. They were happy to give us directions and information on the local area. The only "local" restaurant we ate in was La Fattoria in Romita which was 5 minutes drive away. Superb!

                                                                      Location

                                                                      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.
