About The Experience
Located in the heart of the Chianti, this farmhouse is situated on a beautiful and renowned wine estate that offers more than the typical Tuscan experience. Not only are there panoramic views of the rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, but there is also the perk of being able to taste wine produced right on the estate. Throughout your stay you will be welcomed by an extremely helpful staff at the reception who can assist you or make recommendations for activities during your trip to Italy.
Location Description

The property is located five kilometers from Castellina in Chianti where there are a good number of shops, restaurants, and markets as well as a pharmacy, post office, and tourist information center. Known for its great wines, Castellina in Chianti is a medieval village that was once on the front lines of the wars between Florence and Siena. Today, the old fort in the central square is home to the municipal offices, and the covered gallery has become the magnificent Via delle Volte. Other sights in town include the Castello (which exhibits Etruscan artifacts), the 16th century church of San Salvatore, and its 14th century fresco of the Madonna by Bicci di Lorenzo. Of course you’ll also want to organize a few day trips to some of the other great cities in the area, including Siena, San Gimignano, and Florence.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The property was very nice.
Enjoyed Most:
The surrounding area was gorgeous. We took walks along the road and saw the other homes. Once we figured out the area we were able to explore local medieval towns, do some wine tasting and shopping. There were incredible sunsets. It was nice to sit out on the small porch, have a glass of wine, or eat our meals.
Enjoyed Least:
The house was very cold. It took over 24 hours for us to figure out how to turn the heaters on and get them to work. Also, we only got one set of towels which were extremely light. We requested more towels at an added expense, but they were not delivered for a day and a half. The kitchen had a small counter top oven and no microwave. It was not until the last day that the folks at the wine tasting told us where the wood was to start a fire, so we did not have a fire all week. Editor's Note: Instructions for operating the heaters - in English - will be available at the property for the 2016 season. November, 2015.
Surrounding Area:
We loved exploring the medieval towns, Monterosso, Castellina, San Gimignano, Siena, fun to go to the castles, wine tasting, learning about history of the area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
7 miles away. No, nothing was in walking distance except the winery that was in Lilliano, and part of the overall estate of our villa.
Tips or Restaurants:
There was a fantastic restaurant in Castellina. It is run by an older women who has owned the restaurant for 48 years....inherited from her father. Fantastic food and experience. To bring....warm clothes for the inside of the home. Also, it would be helpful to do some research on the area before you arrive; we didn't know much about the nearest town and there was no mention of it in the house book.
Directions:
The directions to the winery were pretty good. We got there without a GPS. We did use GPS for all of our day trips, and that worked pretty well. I would recommend using a GPS to get through the cities. Travelers should be aware that coming from Florence, there are toll roads, and to get into the correct lanes as quickly as possible.
Check In Out:
Check in, we met the folks at the winery. The gal there spoke great English. However the man who drove us to the villa, did not speak any English. He did not tell us about the firewood, or that we could build a fire--and he did not show us how to use the heaters.

Overall:
Fantastic! The property exceeded our expectations. The views were amazing and the property was very comfortable. We also had the chef dinner prepared at our villa - it was an amazing experience and one of the highlights of our trip.
Enjoyed Most:
Loved the views, the pool area, the fireplace. Loved the location within tuscany - great for day trips.
Surrounding Area:
The countryside is like a postcard - just spectacular. The roads are narrow and curvy - but worth it. Fantastic food everywhere you go. Great wine.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The closest town was Castellina in Chianti. Although very quaint and picturesque - it isn't walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
There is a very good restaurant at La Casina di Lilliano - just up the road. We also really enjoyed Osteria Patececi da Sonia in Castellina. It is also easy to find and great food. We brought card games and played most evenings while drinking wine. It was a fun trip.
Directions:
This property was very easy to find. We did use GPS, but the signs were easy to find and well marked. The roads were good and we never had any issues - even in pouring rainstorms.
Check In Out:
Check in and out was easy.
