Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
San Polo in Chianti, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany
The GIAGGIOLO apartment is on the first and top floor of this characteristic barn on the farm estate of Podere Albereto, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside on the rolling hills above Florence, overlooking the San Polo in Chianti valley. The estate of 10 hectares of fields, olive groves and woodland is only 13 km from Florence and 2 km from San Polo in Chianti. At 350 metres above sea-level there is a gentle breeze in the evening so air-conditioning isn't necessary even in the height of summer.
At Podere Albereto you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, admire the breathtaking view of the Chianti landscape under the shade of a pergola, swim in the pool, sunbathe on the terrace, enjoy a home-cooked barbeque accompanied by a Chianti wine or alternatively visit all the cultural and artistic treasures that Tuscany has to offer.

We had a fabulous 10 days here. Part of the reason for choosing this accommodation was the flexibility of being able to stay for 10 days, rather than 7 or 14. I cannot praise Fabio and Trinidad for their hospitality enough. Fabio is a lovely...More

About the neighbourhood
The little town San Polo in Chianti is situated in north- west Chianti, surrounded by hills of about 700 metres. It is an area known for the cultivation of Giaggiolo (sword lily - a plant used in cosmetics) , the Gallo Nero Chianti wine, and extra vrgin olive oil.The village of San Polo is 2 km away. Here you can find a restaurant, a bar, two small supermarkets, a post office, and a bank. The valley overlooking San Polo has a wonderful landscape of undulating hills leading to the river Arno and historical monuments such as the old church of Rubbiana (13th century). It is ideal for country walks - from the fields surrounding the property you can access walking paths of one, two, or six hours, with panoramic views of Chianti and of Florence.
Getting around
As Podere Albereto is in the heart of the beautiful Chianti countryside at the end of a private lane, a car is necessary when you stay at the property. You can hire a car from any reputable car hire firm on-line and collect it at the airport when you arrive. We provide detailed and easy-to-follow directions on how to reach the property by car. There is a space for your hired car inside the property gates.
If you want to reach the local town of San Polo on foot, it is a 1 km walk. The private road is quite hilly, so bring some comfortable walking shoes. There is a bus stop in the town with services to Florence and Greve. The owner will provide bus timetables when you check-in.
