You can be assured of a warm welcome at this high quality self catering apartment. The rooms are excellent, the equipment more than sufficient, and there is a commodious living room. The pool is clean and welcoming though a little fresh after several days rain. There is a really countryside feel, with several resident cats, a family of peacocks, goats... more

This podere has it ALL for your ideal country vacation in Italy...a gracious host, picture-perfect Tuscan hillsides, centuries-old villettas with all the amenities, gardens, pool, produce and eggs, and minutes from Castellina in Chianti. Ulrike is most helpful with planning your day trips away from the area (we went to Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, and Pienza) and exploring/shopping/dining in Castellina.... more

If you want peace of mind, beauty beyond description, and to hear nothing but the sounds of nature ~ THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

How to get there
apart fromFlorence and Pisa airport, check also on Bologna or Verona - they might offer better time tables and rates - car rentals in Italy are expensive, rates are better in Germany, so if you have the time check on flights into Munich and rental rates there - the journey - highway only - of 6 to 7 hrs. through Austria and the Alps is beautiful.
