The space

Room for rent inside our classical Tuscan stone farmhouse in the countryside of Chianti, 2,5 km outside of Barberino Val d'Elsa.

The room is inside our home on the upper floor and can accommodate 2 people. (There are two twin beds that can be joined together or kept separate). It has tile floors, thick walls, and traditional wooden shutters on the window overlooking the forest and hills. Your own large, private bathroom is just outside the bedroom.

The house is a classic Tuscan stone farmhouse built in 17° century and completely renewed in 2000, with wooden antique furniture, and high ceilings with large oak beams. There is a patio overlooking the garden and the surrounding hills with a large table where , when it's warm, you can enjoy your coffee or a glass of wine.
This is a very peaceful place. In the morning, the birds sing; in the evening you may see wild deer or boar along the edge of the forest; and at night you can see many stars. You can walk up the road and enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

You'll be sharing the home with us, Patrizia and Paolo, with our daughter Premal and our son Manu and with our friendly yellow Labrador named Margot, and several farm cats that mostly live outside. Patrizia is a craftwoman with a shop in San Gimignano, and Paolo is a communication manager. Our daughter Premal is attending university in UK and plays cello. Our son Manu loves animals and he is training to work with horses . We all speak English.

We offer warm hospitality that is also respectful of your needs and privacy. We can provide coffee and tea for your room or you can use our kitchen. Space provided in fridge if needed.

The closest village, Barberino Val d'Elsa, is just a five minute drive away. It has a bakery, shop with an English and German-language newspapers, wine store and tasting room, grocery store, restaurants, and one of the best pizza in the region. Barberino Val d'Elsa is centrally located in the Chianti region between Florence and Siena, ( 30 km) with Certaldo, Volterra and San Gimignano from 20 to 40 minutes by car.
Hot mineral baths with spa services are only 45min away.
Many great restaurants and wine tasting opportunities are also nearby.

Response from Paolo:
We cancelled Kim's reservatione in agreement with her because she decided to give up to rent a car for visiting our area and so was difficult for her to reach our house that is 2.5 km from town. We suggested her to find an accomodation in the centre of the town so to be very close to bus station and other facilities. We cancelled the reservation in order not to make her pay any penalty fee and have the opportunity to choose another accomodation.

We had such a wonderful time with Paolo and Patrizia and their family that we almost forgot we were away from home. We were so warmly welcomed by everyone that it almost seemed a pity to go out and visit lovely Tuscany. Two nights of chatting around the table plus wonderful home …
