Two independent apartments obtained from the conversion of a barn that is part of a charming hamlet in the heart of Tuscany. The hamlet dates back to the 13th century and dominates the surrounding vineyards, olive groves and woodlands from the top of a hill. Its position-inside the Chianti Classico area-is ideal to breath an air of absolute timelessness and tranquillity for a holiday of total relaxation immersed in nature. At the same time you'll find yourself in the heart of culture, as the hamlet is set near to the main places of historical interest of Tuscany. Both apartments have their own private garden areas. They are furnished with modern good taste maximising comfort and provide a typically Tuscan atmosphere with their combination of wood beamed ceilings, white washed walls and terracotta floors. The guests of the hamlet have free access to a 7X14Mt. swimming-pool and a tennis-court. Choosing these apartments you'll enjoy a wonderful holiday with all the best Tuscany can offer.
Chianti area: The two apartments are completely immersed in nature on the wonderful hills of Chianti. You need a car to get there. In the town of Poggibonsi (8 km.) you can find two big supermarkets and many shops for anything you need. Here there are also very good restaurants as well as in delightful Castellina in Chianti.
There can be few things to compare with the pleasure of sitting out of doors drinking the wine which has been lovingly made from the grapes you see in the fields around.
Nature and culture: The hamlet is a perfect starting point to explore the surrounding countryside on foot or by bike. Thanks to its position in the heart of Tuscany, it is also a strategic place in the heart of culture, as you can get in a little while to the most important tourist destinations. Not even the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea is far, just an hour and a half by car.
Local attractions: Chianti area is very interesting also by night with a wide variety of concerts and other cultural events. In summer you can't miss tasting an Italian ice-cream while you are walking among the charming towers of San Gimignano or viewing an opera in the main square of this medieval town.
In July very nice medieval shows take place in Monteriggioni (16 km.) and Certaldo (20 km.). The world famous Palio horse race is held in Siena on July 2nd and August 16th.
All these and many others are the good reasons to choose our apartments for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany!
The Susino apartment has its entrance at the side of the barn from a wide private garden furnished with table, chairs, deck-chairs and barbecue. The position is very quiet and it is about 100 mt. from the swimming-pool and tennis-court. The comfortable sitting/dining room, with dining table in the centre, includes a corner with two sofas (one of which is a single sofa bed) and the fireplace. The kitchen is furnished with gas hob, dishwasher, electric oven and big fridge. A spiral staircase leads up to the first floor hallway with doors to a double bedroom, a twin bedded room and a complete bathroom (shower, bidet, basin, wc and washing machine). The apartment is provided also with central heating, TV, iron and ironing board.
Familiar with the area from previous visits, my wife and I were looking for a special place to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. These apartments in the ancient hamlet of Granaio were perfect. Spacious and well equipped, situated on a hilltop surrounded by olive trees and a forest preserve we shared quiet, sunny days with the occasional deer or boar. The owners became good friends and attended our every need. This is a quiet place, at the end of a gravel road, but still only 15-20 minutes from the supermarket in Poggibonsi. An excellent choice.
We had the best time in Susino! It was a wonderful surprise ! We went ( me , my husband, our son and daughter in law) in April for a week in Tuscany . The house is great, the kitchen is new and very well equipped. We love the garden and specially the views all around us. Susino is located at a Natural Park and we saw deers, wild boars, and other animals. We were welcome with very nice wine and olive oil produced near the property. Bought a few bottles of each to take home. We really recomend this place for a peacefull and real tuscan experience. It was very well located for travelling around and we did travelled around ...
It was the best cost/benefit I ever had in a rental house. Hope to come back with the rest of the family next time.

What a great find Susino is which is one half of a barn conversion being of 2 stories. The first floor was accessed by a lovely wooden spiral staircase which was no problem for my wife who has 3 broken bones in her foot. The hamlet is in the middle of a national park and on our visit we saw deer and badgers. Susino has a large private garden for the use of guests and has some lovely views being situated on a hilltop. The weather was kind to us, mid 20's through the day but cooler early morning and at sunset but it was October so very good for us. Directions given to us by Marco were great with no problems. We found a great restaurant recommended by the owners just on the outskirts of Poggibonsi (near the Nord Round-a-Bout) 15 mins. BOCCA d@ERSA offering 2 menus one meat, pizza & pasta and the other offering an extensive fish menu. The staff were fab and nothing was too much trouble (one waiter translated the menu for us). The accommodation had everything we needed and the owners said that they were adding some more appliances for next season. Note! Swimming pool closes at the end Sept for winter. We would highly recommend Susino and would go back again
We would like to start by saying that we had a wonderful holiday when staying at Susino, and look forward to returning in the future. The listing description is accurate. Indeed, the apartment, its garden, its location, and the superb views all exceeded what we expected from this description. The apartment is located in a small, quiet hamlet, which is about 1.5 kilometres from the main road. The apartment is very well equipped for the number of people it would accommodate. The appliances provided were all easy to use.
The apartment also has good screening against insects for the windows and provides screening for the entrance door. Also provided are electric plug-in repellent devices.
Once our booking was confirmed, the owner emailed detailed instructions in good English for getting to the apartment (with road maps).
The owner's welcome was very warm, friendly, and helpful. On our arrival he presented us with a free bottle of his own wine and olive oil (both of which are excellent, and we bought substantial numbers of each to bring home). He took care to ensure that we were familiar with the apartment and its provisions, and told us of facilities in nearby towns and villages.
We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
Maison en pierre située dans un charmant petit hameau au sommet d'une des nombreuses petites collines de ce magnifique paysage. Intérieur bien équipé et excellente literie. Petit bémol en cette fin avril encore très froid pas de chauffage disponible. Le jardin est splendide et très reposant. La situation au cœur de la Toscane permet un parfait rayonnement de visites accessible entre 15 à 55 minutes de voiture. Parfait !
Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche in diesem schönen, rustikalen Ferienhaus erlebt!
Das Haus ist sehr gu ausgestattet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Die Kommunikation mit den Vermietern vorab, und die Begrüßung vor Ort mit einem Glas Wein haben toll funktioniert und waren sehr herzlich. Das Haus liegt etwas abseits der Route Florenz-Siena in einem absolut ruhigen und friedlichem Naturschutzgebiet. Uns hat besonders der Garten und der wunderschöne Ausblick über die Hügellandschaften begeistert. Es gibt nur noch wenige weitere Häuser in der pittoresken Ansiedlung, so dass wir wirklich ausspannen konnten.
Zum Einkaufen fährt man eine Viertelstunde mit dem Auto, und auch eine ganze Reihe von tollen Ausflugszielen sind schnell erreicht. Wir können das Appartment daher nur wärmstens empfehlen: einfach top!
The hamlet is situated half-way between Castellina in Chianti and Poggibonsi, inside a natural park with endless woods, vineyards and olive groves. Siena (30 km), San Gimignano (15 km), Firenze (42 km), Volterra (56 km) are all within easy reach, so that you can combine cultural tours and relaxing walks in contact with nature through the Chianti countryside. The colours of this area are a feast for the eyes all the seasons of the year. The magic view from these apartments will recharge your mind
