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:
We had a wonderful time. Yolanda is a sweetheart. Very accommodating and whatever issues we had, she handled them immediately and in a courteous manner. She made us feel like family. Also, Francesco at the cantina helped us out with an issue we had.
Enjoyed Most:
It is spacious and pretty comfy. The peace and quiet and loved the vineyard. The pool was used by one of our guests who said it was great. When we arrived there were no stairs to get into pool, but within a day, without us asking for them, they were installed which made it easy to get in and out.
Enjoyed Least:
The rental is on the second floor of the farmhouse. Once you enter the front door, you are faced with two sets of uneven stone steps with no handrail. This was a major setback. Two in our group were able to get our luggage up one step at a time. This is not a good situation especially for people who are over 65. We worried about how we were going to take the luggage down for our departure. We decided to talk with Francesco about it. Hoping she could arrange for someone to help us. She did. Mauro who takes care of the pool came at 8:30 AM day of departure and took down all our luggage. We paid him for his kindness which he reluctantly accepted.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the vineyards with the cypress trees. Absolutely breathtaking. Also, the villa is well located so small towns can be visited with an hour. Grieve, Volterra, San Gimignano, etc.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castellina in Chianti and what a wonderful town it is. Small shops, grocery store and small specialty shops. The people are absolutely the friendliest, caring people in the world. Although, the town is not within walking distance, it can be reached within ten minutes and the parking lot is pretty convenient and very reasonable. One shopkeeper wrote a parking pass for us so we could park on the Main Street for an hour while we went to the co-op. This same shopkeeper helped us out with another situation which required her to let us use her cell phone to solve a rental car issue.
Tips or Restaurants:
Almost anything needed can be brought from the grocery stores. Great restaurant in Lorano about 15 minutes from villa. Very local, great owners, sit outside.
Directions:
Yes, we did use GPS. I believe it is essential if people are planning to drive anywhere. There are so many roundabouts in Italy and many ways to get to the same place. We rented from Hertz about 6 minutes from the Florence airport. It is very convenient.
Check In Out:
It was quite simple. Just have documentation available and Euro cash for security deposit etc. The day before check out Yolanda came by the villa to make sure everything was OK with our stay and return our security deposit.

Overall:
A wonderful, peaceful place in the country. The "town" is Lilliano, but there's not much to it.
Enjoyed Most:
The swimming pool was GREATLY appreciated.
Enjoyed Least:
Cooking facilities are pretty rustic.
Surrounding Area:
We loved the views, the peacefulness. The villa is part of a small wine-making estate. The wine is quite good - and one of the labels features a view of this villa (one of three in the area.)
Nearby Events or Locales:
Two towns are close by, not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Best restaurants are in Castellina, just up the road.

Overall:
I felt like I died and went to heaven. The Property exceeded my wildest expectations!
Enjoyed Most:
The view and location of the property in relation to its immediate surroundings within the estate and in relation to the nearest town, which was 5 km or 7 minutes from the house by car. If one must play tourist and visit all the incredible sites of the region all are by car within an hour or two of the property. You can use the bus from Castellina to get places, but it takes 3x longer to get anywhere and the bus schedules are limited.
Enjoyed Least:
The property was perfect. No complaints.
Surrounding Area:
The view, the variety of long walks for exploring the immediate area. Bring a bird book. The area is filled with exotic birds we wanted to identify.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castellina in Chianti is not more than an easy 7 minutes by car. The road is hilly with no shoulder for safe walking.
Tips or Restaurants:
We bought food at local shops and cooked at home so we could drink the local Chianti without worrying about driving home from restaurants. When we did eat out, the Trattoria la Torre, one of the few restaurants in town, was good and frequented by both locals and tourists. Prices were above average but not unreasonable for the area. Closed on Fridays. We attended an amazing community banquet for 200 people catered by the Albergaccio di Castellina. When I go back I want to find the Albergaccio and eat there. Other good restaurants can be found an easy drive away in Radda and San Donato. The tourist information office in Castellina is staffed by fabulous women who took excellent care of us. We came to see them as our own personal concierge. They answered every question we had and even called the property manager when I first arrived and wasn't quite sure how to find the property or the property manager.
