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.

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:
We couldn't have been happier.
Enjoyed Most:
Rural but accessible to major sites we wanted to visit -- Siena, Arezzo, hill towns, not even too far to day trip to Ravenna by car.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful scenery.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Dudda. A bit of a hike, but doable.

Show All 6 Reviews

Overall:
We had a wonderful time.
Enjoyed Most:
Finding that it included WiFi and that there was cell phone reception, which was surprising for it's rural location. The property was very new, very clean, and very well equipped.
Enjoyed Least:
Cost of heating.
Surrounding Area:
It was quiet and scenic.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucolena; yes, but it's a long walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
No need to bring cutting boards. Bring extra T, and also bring easy wash and dry clothing because there is a washer but no dryer, which is common in Italy.
Directions:
I used Google maps ahead of time to locate the property. From there, in conjunction with using a GPS in our car, it was relatively easy to find.
Check In Out:
The host and hostess were there waiting for us and were very helpful getting us checked in and oriented to the unit and local and regional attractions.

Overall:
GREAT!
Enjoyed Most:
Location in the country, central location, very clean and well equipped, just great!
Enjoyed Least:
That we had to leave after two weeks.
Surrounding Area:
The view, the wine, the food, the people, the trips to Florence and other cities, the marketplace in Greve.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucolena was within walking distance, Greve was only a 10 minute drive and was much bigger. Duda was only a mile away but had but one restaurant which was not bad by any means, and very reasonable.
Tips or Restaurants:
Use the express train from Figline to Florence - 25 minutes and about 4 Euros. On your day of arrival, use the COOP supermarket in Figline or Greve and shop as if you were at home. The apartments are fully equipped to cook and serve great meals and the shopping is great fun. There is a small deli in Lucolena - walking distance which has fresh and very good food.
Directions:
A GPS is a MUST if you plan to travel from the property often. We rented one online that had all of Europe for about $100 for 2 weeks.
Check In Out:
The manager is the very BEST.
