About The Experience

Relaxing and serene, this farmhouse apartment in Chianti is an ideal vacation spot for a family or two couples! Situated on a large estate amidst woods, vineyards, and century-old olive groves, this Chianti farmhouse 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:
It was absolutely fabulous!
Enjoyed Most:
We liked everything: pool, outdoor fireplace, quiet and beautiful atmosphere, and the nearby village and church. We even attended a Mozart concert.
Surrounding Area:
The local Tavarnelle Restaurant (highly recommend), church, people, and Village COOP grocery were all within easy reach.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tavarnelle was the nearest village, but really wasn't within walking. We were glad to have a car.
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved the restaurant just a bit north of the villa on the edge of town; we found the service to be friendly and attentive--plus it offered nice atmosphere and reasonable prices.
Directions:
GPS is absolutely necessary.

Overall:
It was just so quiet and serene--just like something out of an Italian storybook. The location is beautiful, quiet, and all by itself on a hilltop overlooking olive trees and vineyards. Just made you want to stop and take it all in and we did. Sat by the pool with wine we bought at a local vineyard, bought some cheese and crackers, and gazed at our surroundings. Highly recommend!
Enjoyed Most:
The location, quietness, and the wonderful service we received from Patricia, the estate manager. She was just wonderful. So friiendly to us. We were late getting there and could not find the place (we were right down the road) and she sent someone out to find us and bring us to the villa. The next morning she showed up with coffee, cream, and fresh made croissants as we did not have time to make it to the market before we got there. Certainly made our day!
Enjoyed Least:
Only thing was the screens would not close all the way down.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the hills and all the towns we visited. Easy driving. We were there for a week and went to Florence, Greve, stopped in Panzano for a wine tasting in the center of town. Bought a glass and tasted about 25 different wines. Next went to Castallina in Chiant and then San Donato for a incredible dinner. Went to Siena and just hung out at our villa in the yard or down by the pool. Very relaxing!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Romita and Tavernelle. We went several times and had dinner at local cafes and trattorias. People were so friendly and gave us great info on where to go around the area.
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurant at the bottom of the hill for sure--superb! La Fattoria. Went twice. There is a Coop market in Tavarnelle where you can get everything you need.
Directions:
We did have a GPS--which was excellent.
