My wife and I travelled Italy starting from mid June, arriving in Calabria, then to Amalfi, then to Rome, and then to Greve in Chianto. We stayed in Le Lame BnB from July 12-17, and regretted not staying longer, as this was by far our favourite stop (and we stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels along the way)
As we pulled into the driveway, Teresa came out of the house to greet us on the front patio. Right off the hop you could tell she was a genuinely warm and friendly person. Her english was great, and she was very attentive to our needs and wants. The location is ideal as its close enough to the town to walk off your dinner, but far enough away that its quiet and peaceful. Florence is a 30 minute drive away, as Sienna is a 40 minute drive away (gorgeous drive - rent a scooter if you don't have a car). The pool is spectacular and is very well kept, along with the beautiful garden surrounding it. The view from the pool will take your breath away, as it overlooks the vinyards through out Tuscany, as well as the town of Greve. The place is so extremely clean as Teresa is meticulous about cleaning daily. The breakfasts were great, as she had croissants, fruit, yogurt, cereals, milk and juice - and the espresso and cappuccino were phenomenal!!! My wife and I will definitely be back to stay in Le Lame, as it was the most relaxing and enjoyable 5 days we've had in a long time.
