Castellina In Chianti, Tuscany
Beautiful stone Tuscan hamlet dating back to the 16th century and nestling deep among the splendid Chianti Classico vineyards. This property still shows the blazon of the astronomer Galileo Galilei who stayed in this hamlet many years and drew inspiration from the beauties of the surrounding landscape. This property was restored in 2010 preserving its original architectural features and its ancient charm and was turned into 7 charming accommodations.

The apartment is welcoming and tastefully furnished in a typical Tuscan style with wrought iron beds and nice pieces of furniture. This hamlet is located right in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, a short distance away from the small towns of Panzano and Castellina in Chianti as well as from other charming Chianti villages such as Radda in Chianti, Gaiole, Greve in Chianti.

The renovation has been done beautifully, generally using very high quality materials. A lot of things were broken in the apartment though - taps coming off, etc. A walk-in closet in a holiday apartment is a bit over the top! Swimming pool is large and very nice and with lots of afternoon shade! BBQ area and terrace with beautiful view.
The noise in the building was very annoying - people keep coming in till well after midnight and not at all considerate of other guests - creating a lot of noise till into the morning hours. The hallways are also causing a lot of echo of the sounds.
It lacks a bit of charm and authenticity. The building is nice but we did not even get a warm welcome from the owners / agents (not sure who they were) - they just collected the money (cash) and we never saw them again. The road leading up the hill to the villa is very very steep and with a lot of loose gravel. Some of the other places in the area had the roads fixed - I believe for the price they...
