“I FOUND PARADISO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have stayed at Pornanino several times, in both remodeled barns. The larger sleeps four in two separate very nice bedrooms. There's plenty of bathrooms and a large kitchen which opens into the large gathering room. The smaller rental is perfect for two and includes everything you need. Both places are just so perfectly Tuscan with gorgeous valley views. The owners/host are wonderful, friendly, smart, honest, helpful people who just happen to own the olive farm which surrounds the rentals. They live in the house on the grounds and their daughter & son & families live close by. When you stay at Pornanino, you have access to laundry and a swimming pool. But the part I like the best is the location. This beautiful spot is between Radda and Castellina. It is a great place to stay because it is so centrally located. Siena is only half an hour away. After a day of exploring Chianti, it's so nice to come "home", cook some dinner, and then sit outside with a glass of wine. I just cannot say enough nice things about Pornanino. Plus, you can attend the seminar about olive oil. I never knew there was so much that I never knew about this liquid gold! And, in my opinion, they do make the best extra virgin olive oil in Tuscany. I will be returning this June because I just can't stay away.

Room Tip: Either remodeled barn is perfect - it just depends on whether you're a couple or two couples.

We all agreed that this was the best vacation we have ever had. The property is beautifully keep and the Lombardi's are wonderfully hospitable and make you feel like a part of their family. They went out of their on several occasions to help us in ways far beyond what would be expected. We plan to return again soon. If you want to see Tuscany, you simply can't do better.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
On the rolling hills of the Black Rooster area, in the very heart of Chianti, between Radda, Castellina and Vagliagli sits Pornanino, a lovingly restored estate surrounded by 36 hectares of olive groves and wooded hills. The rivers Arbia and Serchio mark the boundaries.The owners had taken on the role of producer of top-quality olive oil with great passion and conduct weekly seminars and tastings on the subject. They have carefully restored the main house and two stone built barns, Capannino and Leccino cottages, renovated to excellent standards and appointed with the same warm style as their own home, with antique furniture enhancing beamed ceilings and cotto floors.Pornanino is accessed by 5km of very well kept unpaved road. The medieval town of Castellina in Chianti with restaurants, wine shops, coffee bars, supermarket, grocery shops, post-office, banks and other shops is 5 kms away, Florence 32 kms and Siena 18 kms. San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo, and many other attractive towns are within an easy drive. The property is 9km from Radda in Chianti, another lovely hill-top medieval town with cobbled streets and also a good choice of restaurants and bar.Il Capannino (sleeps 4), is a self-contained cottage in front of the main house, completely refurbished to excellent standards with antique furniture. Guests enjoy the large central room with open fully equipped kitchen at an upper level, dining room and living room with open fireplace. At every hour of the day light floods this very attractive space, which is immaculately clean. A few steps up there is a corridor leading to the two double bedrooms that are one above the other (note that one of the bedrooms does not have a door but remains very private as the inside of the bedroom is not visible. ) and a study with a door; two bathrooms, one with a tub and hand-held shower and the other with a shower. A large arched glass door opens onto the pergola covered terrace for dining outside ‘al fresco’. ... more   less
