Staying here was one of the highlights of our two-week trip to Italy. Sergio and Silvia are so welcoming and the property is, in a word, gorgeous. We stayed in the Loft and it was beautiful. Our parents stayed in Fienile which was beautiful, as well. We very much enjoyed our dinners and cooking lesson with Silvia. An SUV/van is... More

The beauty of the Chianti/Tuscany region speaks for itself. Il Cellese to my wife and me during our 1 week stay there in Oct 2013 made it even more spectacular. Sergio, Silvia and Svetlana are definitely great hosts. The apartment (we stayed at the Loft) in the Il Cellese compound was a gem too! It has all we need travelling... More

I was looking for an apartment in the middle of Chianti Classico to discover a wine region many French would neglect. Of course the region is gorgeous, but we also found great wines, marvelously matching a delicious local cuisine made with local ingredients. Sergio shared very interesting ideas on wine and wine making, I couldn't have understood this at all... More

My husband & I stayed at Il Celese for one week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Il Celese is a piece of paradise.
