Overview

About the property

house with two rooms and 5 beds in a tiny village near Castellina in Chianti

Granaio is a tiny village composed of four groups of houses and a little church on top of a hill in the heart of Chianti, near Castellina.

It used to be a farm village but the houses have all been restored as holiday houses and now there is a swimming pool with a fantastic view over the hills and a tennis court.

It is a very quiet and peaceful place, at Granaio you can read, paint, swim or play tennis, go for walks or go sightseeing along the old Chianti road. Siena and S.Gimignano are less than 30 minutes away, Florence and Volterra less than an hour’s drive.

At Granaio you will need a car, so you can either come by car or rent one at the airport when you arrive. The nearest shopping centre is at Poggibonsi, which is 7 Km. away from the village.

Accomodation for 5:

- 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with a single bed and a buck bed)

- 1 bathroom

- 1 sitting room with fireplace

- 1 dining room/kitchen

- 1 private garden at the back

How to reach Granaio from Pisa Airport: 1)Follow the signs to Florence. Before you arrive in Florence take the Autostrada (motorway) “A1” Milano-Roma and go towards Roma. You leave it, soon after, at the exit “Firenze Impruneta”. As soon as you are out of the motorway you turn right towards SIENA (Superstrada, not a motorway but a dual-carriage fast road).

2) Follow this road for about 30 Km and exit at POGGIBONSI NORD. At the roundabout go towards “Poggibonsi centro”. Go straight on for less than 1 Km. and then turn left on the VIA CHIANTIGIANA (it is not a big road). Follow the Via Chiantigiana for about 7 Km.. You will see a (beautiful) church called “Cedda” on your right, then the “Chianti Melini’s farm”, again on your right. Slow down now, after 300 m. turn left on the next gravel road located at the side of a curve. Follow this road for 2 Km. and you will soon see “Granaio”.

How to reach Granaio from Florence: 1) Follow the signs to Siena/Impruneta/Galluzzo. The road will take you out of the city. When you reach the big roundabout at Firenze Impruneta, you will see the motorway on your right, take the next exit from the roundabout signposted SIENA.

2) Follow this road for about 30 Km and exit at POGGIBONSI NORD. At the roundabout go towards “Poggibonsi centro”.

Calme et nature

  • 5 of 5

Le descriptif du site est conforme à la réalité : le hameau de Granaio est constitué d’une vingtaine de maisons qui servent aujourd’hui de maisons de vacances (toutes n’étaient pas occupées lors de notre séjour – 2 semaines juillet-août 2013). Vous y accédez par un chemin de terre de 2km depuis la route. Très beau panorama sur la nature environnante (forêt ; vignes et champs d’oliviers) ; avec deux parkings sur les extérieurs, la « rue principale » est piétonne, donc calme et tranquillité assurée. La piscine sécurisée (fermée à clés) et le court de tennis sont en commun et permettent aux familles de se croiser, aux enfants de jouer ensemble. La piscine est les espaces extérieurs communs sont entretenus par une société.

Promenades dans les forêts environnantes (et rencontres biches et sanglier) et producteurs de vins et d’huile à proximité, Pogibonsi est à 7 km pour tout (supermarché ouvert le dimanche au sud de la ville le long de l’autoroute ; station-service, etc.).

Les villages de Rada, Greve et Castellina sont sympa pour une balade d’une demi-journée max, sinon bien évidemment San Gimignano, Sienne et Florence sont assez proches pour de belles découvertes, et toute la campagne toscane et les paysages du Chianti.

Nous y avons passé deux semaines été 2013. La maison est mitoyenne de part et d’autre avec une terrasse ombragée très pratique pour la chaleur. La maison est sur deux niveaux avec salon et cuisine au rdc et 2 chambres SDB avec WC à l’étage. Maison propre et saine, literie confortable, rien ne manque en équipements pour le quotidien avec machine à laver et lave-vaisselle (attention toutefois pas de télé ni de wifi).

A l’extérieur, terrasse ombragée avec une grande table pour les repas, un BBQ maçonné et 4 transats.

Idéale pour une famille de 4 personnes.

Un avertissement : les moustiques sévissent (même en journée), n’oubliez donc pas vos répulsifs

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Alessandra's little row house in the little village of Granoia. It's been just perfect for a week off the beaten path. We all enjoyed very much the wonderful house including the charming terrace and the perfect view over the Tuscan landscape, the pool and the tennis court. We hope to be back soon! Thank you for sharing your house and for the warm welcome.

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en Toscane. La maison est située dans un hameau au milieu des vignes et oliviers, avec une vue extraordinaire sur le chianti, au calme, elle très bien équipée, on est comme chez soi. Alessandra nous a très bien accueilli et à été très réactive lorsque nous avons eu un problème de clé, merci encore. Très bien située au coeur de la Toscane, tout est à portée de voiture. Nous n'avons qu'une envie, c'est d'y retourner.

Casa maravillosa en medio de la naturaleza

  • 5 of 5

La casa está mucho mejor de lo que parece en las fotos. Muy bien equipada con todo lo necesario. El trato con Alessandra y su marido ha sido agradable, atentos a todas las necesidades.

Un lugar maravilloso para desconectar.

El único inconveniente es el camino hasta llegar a la casa. Por lo demás maravilloso.

Perfect location to discover Toscany

  • 5 of 5

Nice house in the middle of a restaured village.

We realy enjoyed the environment, very nice view and a dip in the marvelous swimming pool after a days visit was very welcome!

The tennis ground is perfect and the kids really enjoyed it! As there are a lot of trees in the garden, we didn't suffer at all from the heat!

The house itself has everything you need to spent perfect holidays
