About The Experience

A family with kids will really enjoy this holiday accommodation in Chianti! Along with having a swimming pool and private patio, this Chianti apartment for rent is in between Florence and Siena and is near ancient churches, medieval castles, and authentic fortresses making day trips to new destinations fun for the whole family! This self-catering accommodation in Chianti is quaint and pleasant with a serene atmosphere and views over the surrounding vineyards, hills, and valleys, which also means wine tasting is always nearby. This apartment has its own private outdoor area for dining or relaxing.

Location Description

This apartment is in an ideal location for day trips throughout Tuscany and the Chianti. Lucolena is the nearest village at about one km away. Lucolena has one small food shop, one pharmacy, and a pizzeria. Dudda has a restaurant and tiny food shop (attached). Greve, the unofficial wine capital of Chianti, is less than a 10-minute drive away and is a town full of wine shops. This medieval town is believed to have been settled since before the Etruscans and the Romans dominated the area. Each September, Greve hosts the biggest wine festival in the region but it’s also famous for its funnel-shaped, arcaded Piazza Mercatale that has a statue of the 16th century explorer, Verrazzano, in the center. Chianti, known for its production of red wine, is full of specialized wine shops, wine tour opportunities, cooking classes, restaurants, museums, and castles. A train station is also located eight kilometers away in Figline that can take you to Florence in 20 minutes. The supermarket in Figline is open on Sunday, which is very convenient! Also nearby is a Fashion Outlet. A car is essential for this property.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
A wonderful place to relax after travelling non stop for a couple of weeks. A chance to unpack and spread out in such a beautiful part of the world. The refurbishment and decor of our villa was first class.
Enjoyed Most:
The peace and quiet. A church bell rininging on the hour and birds singing were the musical background to the tranquility. The villa itself was a joy. Spacious rooms and a fantastic pool all added to the stay and Leonardo was a wonderful host. Extremely helpful and attentive and always ready with suggestions to enhance our stay.
Enjoyed Least:
We needed to buy essentials such as salt and pepper, dish washing powder, oil and vinegar. We understand that perishables can not be provided but some of the basics would be helpful especially since check-in is on Saturdays and many places are closed on Sunday and/or Monday.
Surrounding Area:
There are a handful of small villages nearby which are well worth exploring. Slightly further afield are larger towns such as Greve and Figline which have wonderful small restaurants, supermarkets and great shopping. There is a great rail service from Figline which gets you to Florence in 30 minutes for about 20 Euro return. All the roads are in great condition and driving is easy once you get used to the local drivers!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Duda and Lucolena are the closest villages. Both are very small but are beautiful. Walking depends on how fit you are but would be possible if you had time.
Tips or Restaurants:
Leonardo knows all the great restaurants. Just ask him. As mentioned before, some advice about provisions would be helpful if not supplied.
Directions:
Directions were good. We drove from Florence and found the place using GPS which is a must. Advice about the toll on the highway would be useful for planning the trip.
Check In Out:
No. Check in and out was easy and Leonardo was again a perfect host.

Overall:
This was the experience of a lifetime. I know that this sounds like a cliche, but this truly was an amazing experience. My family of four actually bonded at the villa because of the time that we spent together. We even got to know our villa "neighbors," who had a great going away party.
Enjoyed Most:
EVERYTHING! The fact that there was a third bathroom was a lovely surprise. Leonardo was an absolute sweetheart who was willing to help in any way possible. Seriously, this was a wonderful experience.
Surrounding Area:
The area was truly Tuscany, with vineyards surrounding us and small villages of friendly, happy families. Beautiful!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucolena was the closest town. We could walk to it if we wished.
Tips or Restaurants:
According to us, and especially my 25 year old son, the pizzeria in Lucolena was the BEST! Few people spoke English, which made the experience all the more "real." The food was absolutely wonderful--and cheap!
Directions:
We did have a GPS. However, I do believe that anyone could find the villa since it is clearly marked.
Check In Out:
Everything was handled beautifully. Leonardo's assistant clearly explained everything and helped us with restaurants. She spoke perfect English.

Overall:
Very good.
Enjoyed Most:
The setting. Situated on a beautiful piece of property overlooking vineyards and olive trees.
Enjoyed Least:
Very little to dislike.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the countryside.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucolena was the nearest town. Not very convenient to walk to. In Chianti, you need a car to get around anyway so it wasn't a problem.
Tips or Restaurants:
Everything was supplied. When checking in, make sure you ask for their suggestions for trips, restaurants, etc. They were perfect.
