We rented the Giardino apartment for a week and loved it and the entire property. Members of the family who own the property are the on-site managers of the property as well as the winery - all of them are wonderfully helpful and accommodating. The location of this property is absolutely superb and the views are the best! There are many areas for lounging about outdoors to take in the views while sipping on vino. The tour of the family winery was very informative and the wine-tasting was very generous.
My only recommendation (and thus 4* rather than 5) is that there should be screens on the windows are there were a lot of mosquitoes and other bugs and it would have been nice to be able to keep the windows open.

All its beautiful apartments are personally furnished by Mrs. Gori with precious original antiques. Amenities include a magnificent Mediterranean-style swimming pool, a private library with recent and antique literature, a breathtaking classical Tuscan garden with hand-carved stone balusters and huge terracotta urns. Our guests may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the Villa and taste the excellent Chianti wine and Olive Oil produced by the farm. Stucco, frescoes, and high hand-painted ceilings make Villa Il Pozzo the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. At walking distance there are a family-owned Tuscan Restaurant, a mini-market, and one of the oldest churches of the region. Following an old tradition, all the weddings of the Gori family members are celebrated in this Romanic jewel. ... more less
