“In the heart of Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We spent a week at I Melograni del Chanti it was one of the highlights of our month in italy. The apartment was wonderful, the views spectacular. Serena was so helpful in giving us directions to local places to eat, roads to take and sights to see. Poggibonsi is literally in the heart of Tuscany. You can drive in any direction and find fabulous cities, towns and villages. Loved our apartment, very well equipped, comfortable bed, just like the pictures. The only draw back is the Internet is available only in an area by the pool, but looking out at the hillside made up for the little inconvenience that caused. We would highly recommend I Melograni del Chanti for their stay. We felt so lucky to have chosen it for our Tuscany adventures.

Room Tip: They are all lovely.

We just returned from a two-week trip to Italy, and I Melograni del Chianti was an excellent choice for accommodations. The grounds are just beautiful, with gorgeous views across the valley, and a lovely peaceful setting. Our living quarters were luxurious and sparkling clean. The property is obviously well-loved, and cared for with pride; it has a very warm and welcoming feel. Serena really is great. I didn't have a chance to plan out our time in Tuscany in advance, and she quickly helped us outline a five-day itinerary that included cultural, geographic, and culinary highlights. Don't hesitate to reserve your stay here.

Thank you Serena! Just returned from a two week trip to Italy. I Melograni del Chianti was one of the highlights. This property was a perfect location to tour the Tuscany area. Serena is a wealth of knowledge and ever so helpful! The property and our apartment was simply beautiful... Quiet and very peaceful with beautiful views of the area. We toured Florence, Volterra, Castellina and Radda and Siena and had a cooking lesson too right in our own apartment!

Room Tip: We had the two bedroom/2bath apartment for 4 adults. PERFECT and very comfortable.

11th century farmhouse overlooking beautiful valleys! Quiet. Peaceful. 30-40 minutes from Florence and Siena and surrounding villages. Rooms are large and well equipped. Wonderful pool. Areas to grill and picnic. Serena is wonderful. She is so knowledgeable. Knows everything about everything. Will call and secure reservations for you for the attractions. Knows the best places to eat and the best times to go somewhere AND she is such a nice and pleasant person!

Would go back in a heartbeat! We spent 14 wonderful days there. It felt like leaving home when we left to go to Rome!

Serena, thank you for sharing this beautiful property with us and your wonderful knowledge of the area. This is a fantastic location as you are 30 mins from Florence and Siena and all of Chianti and San Gimignano around the corner. This is set in the rolling Tuscan Hills, where you can sit by the pool or visit the area with great advice and recommedations from Serena on wineries to visit and restaurants to dine at. The apartment exceeded our expectations, although the bed was very firm.

This was our first trip to Europe, and our first destination was Tuscany. Our stay in June at Melograni Del Chianti was a dream come true! Everything was perfect, starting with the beautiful apartment, the breathtaking views, well maintained property and sparkling pool. We spent a fantastic week visiting the beautiful Chianti region. Our day would start by visiting Serena, our wonderful host, in order to get information or suggestions regarding restaurants, wineries or places to visit during our day trips. We would also share with her our experiences during our daily visits throughout the area. She quickly became a true friend as she made us feel right at home. We even had the opportunity to meet her charming parents who were visiting her while we were there.

Thank you Serena for sharing your property with my wife and I and making our Tuscany visit a dream come true. Philippe and Odette, Canada
