It is true ! I think that Ventena Vecchia is the best idea of accommodation when you decide to see Tuscany. Location is great - you can go everywhere in Chianti region in maximum 1 and a half hours drive. The great cities of Florence, Sienna and Pisa are not so far as well. Accommodation is very nice - the apartments are very well designed and you can find all the useful things you need inside. Hosts Siggi and Olaf are nice people and will give you a lot of useful hints regarding the area; we enjoy a lot the dinner with them.
Do not miss when you are in this region: fortified cities of Radda In Chianti, Pienzza, Montepulciano and Cortona. Best restaurant : La Botegga , at the entrance in Volpaia (excelent view, service and food)
