About The Experience

Relaxing and serene, this villa, made up of 3 apartments, is located in Chianti and is an ideal vacation spot for a family! Situated on a large estate amidst woods, vineyards, and century-old olive groves, this Chianti villa apartment for rent is always picturesque no matter what time of year you come. When you're not spending time in the swimming pool, having a barbecue, or taking advantage of the outdoor pizza oven, this self-catering accommodation in Chianti is in the perfect location to take day trips to San Gimignano, Florence, and Siena!

Location Description

The farmhouse apartment is located two kilometers from Romita, which features a grocery store. The medieval village of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, located on the road between Siena and Florence, is four kilometers from the property and dates back to the Roman Ages. In addition to shops, restaurants, and markets, Tavarnelle has a rich heritage and many ancient buildings. Each July, a summer festival is held featuring live music and theater shows as well as markets offering tastes of local recipes and dishes. San Gimignano is also great place to go for a day trip. As one of the most visited towns in Tuscany, it is known for its rich history dating back to the Etruscan times and is full of life and things to do. Popular attractions include the famous towers, the 12th century Duomo, the People’s Palace, and several museums dedicated to artwork and archeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting tours, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances, and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights and play medieval games and have tournaments. Naturally, you’ll also want to take day trips to the other famous Tuscan cities such as Florence, Siena, and Arezzo.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Great Villa to rent. We took the entire main house, which can be subdivided into three units. There were two kitchens in the house, and they were able to accomodate a group of 12 with special permission.
Enjoyed Most:
It turned out to be a great location for access to local Tuscan towns and villages, as well as Florence, Pisa, and other larger Cities.
Enjoyed Least:
The Air Conditioning was not able to keep up with the heat. Fortunately the nights cooled down and the Villa has plenty of fans, pretty much one for each bed, and almost each occupant. Tuscany is experiencing a drought right now and the upper floors can get stuffy at night. Windows open and the breezes managed things nicely. If you like "cool" and won't tolerate these previously described machinations, I wouldn't recommend visiting the villa in July, August, or early September. By the way, the place is loaded with some nice fireplaces, if you are planning a fall or winter visit.
Surrounding Area:
Olive goves, vinyards, small medieval towns. Access to Tuscany by the nearby Florence-Siena highway.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No town is within walking distance. This is a nice, remote villa.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa had pretty much everything we needed. The pool was well maintained and there is someone on site most days. Great restaurants abound. Can't call out any one indivudal place, but the restaurant you pass on your way to the property was local, nearby, and great!

Overall:
We had a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful, with spectacular views. Our point of contact, Gloria, was very kind and sweet. She even brought us herbs from the villa garden to use for cooking.
Enjoyed Most:
There isn't any one thing that stands out...it was all so perfect! There were six of us at the villa and we had more than enough room to sit back and relax, take walks, or lounge on the patios, by the pool or in the BBQ area. We enjoyed breakfast watching a beautiful sunrise and dinner with spectacular sunsets.
Enjoyed Least:
The only negative is really the road leading to the property. It is very narrow, rocky, and bumpy. And we are extremely grateful that we chose to get a GPS.
Surrounding Area:
The views are spectacular. The vineyards and olive groves and surrounding villas and farmhouses are beautiful. It's peaceful and quiet and very relaxing.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest small town would be within walking distance IF the road was easier to traverse. It is very rocky and narrow and not ideal for long walks. We drove to the market there for some of our groceries, and into Tavernelle di Pesa to shop at the supermarket for the larger items.
Tips or Restaurants:
Future renters should definitely plan to splurge for a GPS. Trying to find the property without one would be much more difficult and time consuming. In addition, the GPS is handy for exploring during your stay...such as finding your way around Florence both by car and on foot.
Directions:
Definitely use a GPS. And when she tells you to turn right onto that teeny tiny rocky path...LISTEN!
Check In Out:
Be sure to ask how the dishwasher and washing machine work before they leave you to your own devices.

Overall:
Very enjoyable. It was our first time in Tuscany so we now understand the attraction. It was a welcome relief from the cities.
Enjoyed Most:
It's size, location, and solitude. The pool was also a great bonus for relaxing after our mornings out.
Enjoyed Least:
Wasps (can't do much about those) and the heat in the upstairs bedrooms (the A/C worked as best it could). The pillows were a bit lumpy. The TV didn't work in the main living room, but we didn't need it anyway.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tavernelle is a 5 minute drive. It was very handy, especially the up-market Supermarket IN-COOP.
Tips or Restaurants:
It would be good to have a gas-fueled BBQ as we are Australians and chopping wood was not our thing.
Directions:
We came from Pisa rather than Rome so had to read the directions in reverse. Once we left the main road to Tavernelle we had to ask for directions. In the middle of the day it was OK, but at night it would be challenging.
Check In Out:
Gloria was very friendly and helpful.
