This is a charming apartment in the ancient farmhouse, ideal for a couple.
Restored in authentic Tuscan style, it has stone walls and red “cotto” flooring.
The “Aia” is composed by a small, nice living-room with a small kitchen, a large, romantic double bedroom, and a bathroom with shower.
From the bignonia pergola in front of the apartment, equipped for outdoor lunches and candlelight dinners, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the countryside.
“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.

Sonia and Franco are gracious and generous hosts. They were wonderfully attentive to our needs, accommodating our very late arrival and last-minute reservation after our other accommodations fell through. They are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge of the region and provided tips on day excursions for us as well as much neesed directions.
The property is conveniently located, allowing us to visit many villages in the region with little travel time. We fell in love with Siena, Volterra, and San Gimigniano, all recommended by Sonia and Franco.
Franco gave us a tour and a delightful tasting of the organic wines and olive oil they produce. Franco was kind enough to give us a bottle of olive oil as a gift.
The property is beautiful and surrounded by rolling hills. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable we had during our entire 2 week European vacation.
We will definitely be returning to Il Baio and highly recommend it. We can't wait to drink the wine we purchased when we get home.
My wife and I recently visited this wonderful place for an anniversary trip to Italy and it was a major highlight of our trip! To begin, we saw the pictures listed on the site and instantly fell in love with the place before we left the States. When we arrived, their home exceeded our expectations. More importantly, we truly felt at home. Sonia and Franco were wonderful hosts, and they were very loving and accommodating during our entire visit. They recommended a great place for dinner in town, as well as 2 excellent places for Italian pastries and coffee. We were welcomed at the beginning of our visit with a bottle of fantastic organic wine created from grapes in their vineyard. We toured their wine-making operation on the last day of our visit and learned more about how the wine was made. I enjoyed their wine so much that I bought a case (as well as some organic olive oil) that Franco arranged to have shipped back to America. Sadly, our holiday in Italy is over but I'm counting the days until the wine from Il Bacio Agritourisimo arrives! We can't wait to come back to visit again! Phil & Lori
Stayed for a week on our honeymoon. Had a fantastic time here! Franco and Sonia were wonderful hosts. The location is perfect - rural and quiet, but a quick drive into Tavarnelle to stick up on supplies. Also very convenient for driving around the Chianti region and beyond - San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, etc
We rented the Aia suite - spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Pool is perfect. Friendly cats, dog and donkeys :)
Great experience and would definitely come back here in the future.
This property is located between Firenze and Sienna in the country side. The apartment is clean and has all you need if you choose to make your meals at home. There is a outdoor table area where you can sit outside and enjoy the warm evenings. Sonia and Franco were very hospitable and were very helpful in providing direction to nearby attractions. Our son enjoyed the salt water pool.There is a vineyard and wine tasting , unfortunately we ran out of time. We felt very welcomed and next time we visit we will stay for longer so we can enjoy the beautiful setting. Thank you Franco and Sonia for making us feel at home!
We were amazed by how peaceful iI Bacio is. It is such a wonderful place and Sonia and Franco are incredible hosts. We hope to come back again some day! I cannot say enough positive things about this wonderful little piece of heaven!
The apartment was exactly as expected- clean, tidy and smart..the family (hosts) were exactly what I hoped for as a "traditional" Italian family, with all the generations enjoying meals together..and the "home made" wine was excellent....and the access to both Florence and Siena was easy, and the local restaurants in Tavernelle were very good
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.
