A lovely setting and very convenient to all major sites. Rustic in places and you need to like animals, great for kids to feed the animals. We enjoyed quiet time with the family in lovely countryside.

About the neighbourhood
spend a dream vacation in Tuscanys heart - ' Chianti Classico' - only a few miles from Florence and Siena - vineyard covered hills, silvery olive groves, vast forests and colourful macchia slopes - and admidst hidden ancient farm houses guarded by cypresses and towering pinetrees like the privately owned 16th century estate ' Poderi Val Verde ' . In this small familystyle hamlet, only 2 km from the next village the famous Castellina in Chianti , our sophisticated guests will find undisturbed and unspoiled nature, silence, sun, good food (cookery courses) Chianti wine, sports (trekking, biking, riding etc.) as well as culture. Surrounded by more then 2ha of wellcared parklike garden sits the imposing guest house complex which is dived in 3 apartments (2-4 Pers.) , and/... more
Getting around
bus connections in the Chianti hills are limited and part only from towns, train connections exist only in the valley between major towns or cities. if you want to see the beauty of the Chianti Classico and other country area pls bring a car or ensure driver services. Castellini in Chianti with shops and restaurants is though within walking distance (20/30 min)
Car advised
How to get there
apart fromFlorence and Pisa airport, check also on Bologna or Verona - they might offer better time tables and rates - car rentals in Italy are expensive, rates are better in Germany, so if you have the time check on flights into Munich and rental rates there - the journey - highway only - of 6 to 7 hrs. through Austria and the Alps is beautiful.
