About The Experience

Imagine being within walking distance to one of the most popular Chianti towns in Tuscany! Greve is not only the capital of the Chianti region; it is also home to wonderful shops and restaurants. The beautiful main square is the gathering place for locals and tourists alike. You will have the best of both worlds, with countryside views from your small villa, along with the facilities of a lively wine town a short walk away. This villa is well suited to a family or two couples. There are two other villas very close by.

Location Description

Greve, the capitol of the Chianti region is just 500 meters walking distance and has shops, nice restaurants and bars. In ten minutes you will reach the main square, Piazza Matteotti, a lively place where festivals are regularly held. Don’t miss the famous shops of Greve including Antica Macelleria Falorni, a Tuscan butcher shop that has been in the same spot since 1729, and Bottega dell’Artigianato, a shop specialized in hand-woven baskets and products made in olive wood. Other daytrips include the artistic and medieval cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano as well as the charming Chianti villages of Castellina, Gaiole, Radda and Panzano.

Nearby Attractions: The Chianti region is known for its “Chianti Classico” wine. Greve in Chianti, with its triangular shaped piazza has a great wine museum. Panzano’s old town is perfect for taking walks and the town has several wine bars and restaurants which offer wine tasting. In Castellina in Chianti, walk Via delle Volte, an underground tunnel around the city.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The location was perfect. The short walk into town and the easy access out of town made this a perfect spot in the heart of Tuscany.
Enjoyed Most:
We loved that we had the best of both worlds. Close enough to town that we could walk with the feeling that we were in the country when you looked out either the front or back of the villa.
Enjoyed Least:
There was very little to complain about at Casa Gioia. Our only complaint was that the espresso pot was too small and the "American Coffee Maker" was too slow to brew. Also the knives in the kitchen could use some upgrading.
Surrounding Area:
We loved that we had easy access throughout the Chianti Region. The rolling hills and the landscape are breathtaking.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is less than a 10 minute walk into Greve.
Tips or Restaurants:
We have used RentVillas many times now so we are generally used to what to expect when staying at a villa. We travel with our own reuseable shopping bags as well this time we brought a small folding cooler for our trips into the CO-OP. We also travel with Tide-Pods for the washing machine as well as bounce sheets and zip lock bags.
Directions:
We bring along our own GPS as well as paper maps, but the directions provided got us to the villa with no problems.
Check In Out:
The check-in and check-out are seamless.

Overall:
Excellent! Modern, well equipped house on a very quiet street. A nice pool, although the water was cool (ok, cold!) in the 3 rd week of October.
Enjoyed Most:
The location was perfect for us. We had a car to explore the countryside and other towns, but we could easily walk to the Greve town square, shops and restaurants.
Enjoyed Least:
Getting by car onto the main street was difficult. Despite a mirror, there was very poor visibility of traffic at the T-junction.
Surrounding Area:
Wine-tasting opportunities abound. Every walk took us by vineyards and olive trees, and there was another village within walking distance (if you don't mind hills!).
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were on the edge of Greve in Chianti. A 5 minute walk to the town square.
Tips or Restaurants:
The town square has a couple of good, modestly priced restaurants. Opening times vary. The butcher shop, also in the square, sells great sandwiches, gellato, and prepaid cards for wine tasting at the dispenser outside the shop.
Directions:
We used a GPS (essential, really), and had no problems finding the property.
Check In Out:
We had problems with our phone, but the tourist information office (yes, in the town square) quickly reached our contact person and we traveled back to the property where we checked in. Check out was fine.

Overall:
We loved it! The property manager was amazing and responsive - we also loved being able to walk to Greve for meals or gelato.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and the convenience and the responsiveness of the property manager.
Surrounding Area:
Visiting the small towns nearby and the local vineyards and spending time in Greve
Nearby Events or Locales:
Greve - yes, short walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved arranging for a cook. It was one of the most fun meals - we also loved the tasting dinner at Dario the Butcher and had a couple other amazing meals and loved the family owned winery up on the hill (I forgot the name but it has many stars from Trip Advisor).
Directions:
Use GPS
Check In Out:
No - our luggage was lost but it actually arrived two days later ... and the property manager lent us some toiletries in the interim ... it worked out fine. Check in and out was the easiest part of everything.
