“Eating and drinking our way through Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

After leaving the hustle and bustle of Rome and Florence, we wanted to get away to the country side and eat/drink/explore Tuscany. The farmhouse at Val delle Corti was the perfect location for us as we are big fans of Chianti Classico wine. It served as a temporary home as we drove to surrounding towns/cities (Siena, Monteriggioni, Greve, San Gimignano, Gaiole) during our 4-day stay.

Roberto, his family and dog Hugo were excellent hosts. We even had a chance to help him bottle some wines that were to be showcased at a Florence wine festival later that day. The farmhouse has two bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and outdoor patio. It was very nice to have the comforts of a home after touring the big cities and staying in hotels. Roberto provided some local advice on great restaurants, markets and sight seeing. We woke up every morning with a view of the vineyard and the rolling hills. It was a perfect starting point for our daily journeys through Chianti region and we highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early May. I've never been inspired to write a review before, but this place deserves to be highlighted. The beautifully renovated, clean and light filled hay barn is nestled on the hillside with lovely views through arched windows of rolling vineyards. We were greeted warmly by architect Lis who suggested a small trattoria with authentic, simple and delicious tuscan food, Le Forchette in Radda. I like to balance dining out with some home cooked meals which were easy in the very well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed breakfasts and a glass of wine before dinner, fortified again with the breathtaking views on our private terrace. Roberto is fluent in English and on our personal tour gave us insight into the culture of grapes to create his Chianti wines. Try his reserva! Overall, a quiet and peaceful retreat after exploring the medieval hill towns and nearby Sienna and Florence.

We have stayed at 6 or so farm holiday apartments over the last 10 years and in many ways this one is the best. Roberto is a knowledgeable grape grower and wine maker who specializes in small batches of high quality Chianti Classico. His mother Eli is a gracious hostess who personally welcomes you to their property. Our luggage did not make a connecting flight so we were without many things for the first 24 hours. Eli provided us with food, clothing and toiletries. She called the airlines and did every thing she could to expedite their delivery. The property is immaculate and the furniture is the nicest and most comfortable we have had. Double beds are usually two twin strapped together with a bump in the middle. We had a very comfortable queen-sized bed. Eli also had stocked the apartment with generous amounts of food and wine as well as the herbs and spices that are never there at other places. Because the apartment is in a converted barn. It is very private and quiet. Finally, we enjoyed their family pets- Hugo, the robust lab mix and Pepe, the cat. Both are well mannered and if you ignore them, they stay away, but if you call them over, you have a friend for life.
