We spent 2 wonderful nights at this B&B. We had a suite in the main building, and my parents had a lovely room next to the wine cellar. Views from the top of the hill and from the shaded patio were beautiful. Both rooms were very clean, nicely decorated, and the beds were cozy. We arrived just as the wine harvest was finished, and it was fun to see the activity and commitment the entire family had around their farm and livelihood. The hill is steep, but my partner and I walked it with little difficulty--quick 10 minute walk into Greve's main square, with shops, restaurants, and a market on Saturdays.
Breakfast is Italian continental--more than adequate for all of us, and Elena is quick with a smile and coffee. It is set up in the wine cellar, and it is interesting to see the pictures of the farm over the years, as well as hear some of its history from Elena. You can also order a nice picnic lunch, if you plan to hang out at the pool or wander the area. We had a nice bottle of wine and a cheese plate when we first arrived, and enjoyed it immensely. They do not sell their wine in the local stores--only to people who've stayed with them or have heard about them. It is good wine--unfortunately, we were traveling with backpacks, so will have to have it shipped over!!
Elena speaks English well; her family speaks less. We were able to communicate with everyone, and Zotto (their 1 year old puppy) made it easy. Love of animals is an easy thing to see, and we had fun with him. You can tell the minute you arrive that this B&B is something special--very personal and caring--we will definitely return!

This is our second time to Podere Campriano and we will highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visits the Chianti region.
It is centrally located and has great amenities including a fantastic pool which during our visit was used daily with a heat wave happening and temps in the 37-41 Celsius. Elena and family are as always the most hospitable hosts and such a lovely family, we again did the cooking class which again was a highlight and a great day had by all we met a lovely couple from San Fransisco who joined in the cooking, eating and drinking.
I will absolutely without reservation recommend your stay here and can guarantee that if you are like minded you will enjoy and be satisfied.

This gem of a farm features a B & B, wine tasting, and a cooking lesson in some wonderful family recipes! We had arranged a family cooking lesson, and it was truly memorable! Set in the beautiful hills of Greve in Chianti, the large indoor and outdoor cooking space was so inviting! Our college aged son and daughter loved their active roles in making bread, pate, pasta primavera, pork rib roast, papa pomodoro, and a delicious "custard cake" (more like a tart)! EVERYTHING was made from scratch, and I ADORE their authentic wood oven! Our meal included 4 different wines from their own reserves. The meal was truly delicious!!! The B & B looked so serene and relaxing, we will have to try it someday! At the end of our visit, we even received a delightful, handwritten recipe book, memories we will cherish!

We stayed at Podere Campariano for two nights during our Tuscany trip. The hostess Elena was extremely helpful. The estate is located on the elevated vineyard hilltop where you have a unobstructed view of the town. Our loft room was well kept and with lovely country charm. The place also offers the wine tasting and cooking class. If you're interested, ask for availability when you check in. Lovely stay at Podere Campriano!!

This by far was one of the major highlights of our 5 day trip to Tuscany! We had a cooking class with the owners of the property, 2 generations of authentic italian chefs, father and daughter...We made homemade pasta, even dried it on bamboo poles, delicious tuscan red sauce, pork roast with fresh herbs from the garden, grandmas special cake and liver pate! We sampled wine from their vineyard and had a tour of their winery which is on their beautiful property....They also have a beautiful b&b on their property. The great part of this day was that everything we did was spent outdoors, they have an outside oven and all the prep was done in the open tuscan air!! A TRUE 5 STAR EXPERIENCE...Can't wait to go back just to see Elena and her father!!

My wife and I spent a week at this lovely farm just on the outskirts of Greve in Chianti. It sits on a hill overlooking the village which was in walking distance. The family was very hospitable and helpful. We were given a tour of their wine making facilities and enjoyed a tasting as well. We cannot wait to go back!

We stayed 4 nights in the two bedroom apartment. The stay was fantastic. Highlight of the trip. Love the apartment, the grounds, Elena and her whole family. We did the cooking class which was fun and entertaining. Eating the results was great also. Plus we had several of their wines with the meal. All were very good. As the only guy in the group I spent most of my time working with Elena's father working on the pork roast. He spoke zero English and I can't speak Italian but we understood each other and had a great time.
Breakfast is very good.
Four nights were good but we could have stayed for a month. We love the Podere Campriano and the entire Greve area.
We will be coming back and cannot wait.

If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful setting in a picturesque vineyard, this is the place. Owned by our hostess, Elena, and her family, this is a truly Tuscan bed and breakfast. The rooms are 2 story with the sitting room and bath on the first floor and the bed in a loft. The furnishings are rustic but modern. The views are beautiful looking over Greve. There is a large outdoor swimming pool and a huge picnic table and sitting area at the top of the hill surrounded by olive trees and rosemary. The breakfast is homemade and delicious. As I said, it is at the top of a hill and you can drive up after being let in at the gate. If you don't mind walking, you can walk up and down the drive, or just drive down into town to park. We were there at the start of the wine festival, so we had a little difficulty but on a normal day, this wouldn't be a problem. The next time we visit, we will take the cooking class which is offered.

What a great way to spend the day! My friends and I joined Elena and her father Vale for five hours of cooking, eating and drinking. It couldn't have been better! We learnt some great skills in the kitchen, ate more than we could and left feeling like part of the family. Elena was incredibly accommodating and welcoming, even made it possible to alter the menu for a gluten free diet. Highly recommend!
