Typical Tuscan country house, recently restored, situated on one of the Chianti hills dominating the valley of the river Arno: full scale and relaxing view especially on the green surrounding hills and on the heart of the city of Florence.
“Giovanni is a passionate host. His passion can be experienced in every detail of the property. Everything is clean, the plants well cared for and varied. You experience your passion for oil and wine on arrival and you will love the products that come from within 500m. Rosemary, sage, laurel and lemon grow next to the terrace. His passion for the area can be seen if you follow his tips. Every single one is a direct hit and everything is an experience that would otherwise not have been found. You can run and cycle in the immediate vicinity. The bikes on site are not very well suited for this. The kitchen was well equipped and even the open fireplace works when it gets colder.”
Lovely room with own bathroom in family house; independent access, private terrace, opening out onto garden where deer roam and birds sing. A secluded and peaceful location, immersed in countryside, opposite a 10th century fortified village. We invite ALL PEOPLE to our home in the spirit of INCLUSIVITY and NON-DISCRIMINATION. Everyone is WELCOME.
“What a fabulous spot! Julia and Giovanni have done an exceptional job renovating the property, and I found the room very inviting and comfortable. The outdoor kitchen is fun, too! Having your private patio on the side of the house creates just the right amount of privacy without feeling isolated, which is great for a solo traveler. High quality screens for keeping the bugs out, and a genuinely hot shower (not something I take for granted after staying in a few other Airbnbs in Italy that had lukewarm water at best). Great access to Montefioralle on foot, and the whole area is wonderful for evening strolls. I suspect most people staying here will have a car, but I didn’t, and Julia kindly offered a ride to the weekend market in Greve. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a scenic spot to relax in Chianti!”
Apartment at Borgo Sicelle, in Castellina in Chianti area, between Florence, Siena, S.Gimignano. A kitchen, satellite tv, double bedroom, bathroom with shower. Air condition. It's on the first floor. Outside, on the ground floor there are shared tables, chairs. In front of the property there is a restaurant (Osteria Uscio e Bottega-closed on Wednesday) where they prepare take away dishes too.
“Will definitely go back. The site with the view is absolutely amazing. You are 30 minutes away from Siena or Gan Gimignano (Ideally need a car if you stay here) . Calm and peaceful place when you need a pause from the city. Thanks to the Franco and Sylviana for their hospitality”
