Nestled in the hills of Chianti, this highly-rated agritourismo is in an excellent location not only for relaxing poolside, but for a variety of daytrips to places like Greve, San Gimignano, Rada, Siena, Florence and of course Castllina in Chianti which is an enchaning...

A beautiful property in the Chianti region. You're situated in a spectacular vineyard/olive grove with gorgeous views, lovely apartment accomodations. The fantastic hosts; Sergio and Sylvia make your visit very special. Soak up the sun in the beautiful pool overllooking the Tuscan countryside. Within 10-15minutes you can visit quaint Tuscan villages and enjoy local cuisine and great shopping. Pure heaven.... More

Il Cellese was highly recommended to us by Canadian friends and we weren't disappointed. The inn is a restored family farm with stunning exposed stone walls and terra cotta floors. Sylvia was outstanding from check in to check out. She looked after all our needs including mouth-watering meals, maps and directions and local history. The view of the Tuscany vineyards... More

Our stay at Il Cellese was absolutely perfect. We stayed in 'Sergio' which was a beautiful, well equipped and extremely comfortable apartment (practically a house). I could not get over how clean it was, for such an old building it was completely spotless. The facilities are great - ample space outside to sit and enjoy the view, excellent pool and... More
