About The Experience
This renovated stone farmhouse is located in the fortified medieval hamlet of Volpaia, considered by some, one of the best remaining examples of its kind. The farmhouse enjoys a secluded position within the hamlet, ensuring complete privacy. Located 300 meters from the farmhouse you will find two restaurants, which offer seasonal menus featuring ingredients from the local farm. In addition to exploring the charming nearby towns, day trips include Siena, Florence and Pisa. A group of friends or a large family will enjoy the privacy and tranquility of this Chianti farmhouse.
Location Description

Located in the Chianti Classico, this farmhouse is seven kilometers from the characteristic medieval village of Radda in Chianti. Centered around the 14th century church of San Nicolo and the Palazzo Pretorio, Radda in Chianti is situated on a hill and features shops, restaurants, markets, banks, and a post office. The property is also in an excellent location for visiting Siena, a wonderfully preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages. A treasure trove of gothic palaces, churches, and museums, Siena is also well known for its exciting bi-annual bareback horse races, the Palio, held once in July and August.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Terrific! Everything worked, the villa was comfortable and very clean, and it was wonderful to be out in the countryside and simultaneously next to a substantially charming tiny village.
Enjoyed Most:
(1) The care, guidance and knowledge provided by the housekeeper, who also cooked us a first-class meal one night (2) being able to walk to and from the extraordinarily delightful Osteria Volpaia for dinner.
Enjoyed Least:
Well, it's a trivial thing, but the pool house blocked the view from the living room and outdoor dining table. The pool area itself was fine.
Surrounding Area:
Radda is convenient, with a nice range of stores. It and a number of other nearby older towns are scenic, pleasant and historic. Everyone we met was friendly.
Nearby Events or Locales:
As mentioned, Volpaia is very close. Groceries and other supplies are a short drive away, in Radda.
Tips or Restaurants:
In Panzano, near the top of the hill at the end of town, Cantinetta Sassolini is a relatively new restaurant with marvelous fresh versions of regional cuisine. Casual and welcoming.
Directions:
Directions were perfect.
