We have just had a most relaxing holiday at Patrizia Falciani villas in Greve-in-Chianti. We were a group of nine there for two weeks. We enjoyed many day trips to the surrounding region including Florence, Siena, and San Gimignano. The Greve wine festival was on during our stay which we could walk to from the farm. Roberta looked after our every need, organising wine, taxis, restaurant reservations. She was great and helped make our holiday one we will never forget. Recommend Patrizia Falciani Villas to everyone.
Ah! A swimming pool facing the vineyards of Greve in Chianti couldn't go wrong. We stayed in a private house they have. Beautiful and spacious, with a lovely garden where you can have your meals enjoying the birds symphony. The house was a bit dusty when we arrived, but overall the place is excellent!
I like this agriturismo very much. The self catering apartments (I’ve stayed in two different ones plus seen two others) are simple but spacious and comfortable, views of the Tuscan grapevine-rowed hills are abundant, and I love that each place has its own outside space or terrace or patio so that you can sit and eat outdoors and enjoy the view and the silence. Location is great and it’s not a long walk to Greve, and you’re right in the heart of Chianti wine country. The pool is a must on the hottest days of the year and you get to watch an amazing sunset if you sit poolside. I definitely recommend this beautiful agriturismo and think it has great value - stay for a couple of nights or make a holiday out of it, using it as your base to explore this gorgeous part of Tuscany.
Stayed here in July 2018 and have to say it really is a beautiful place. The winery is awesome and the location to go day tripping in the small Chianti towns and can't be beaten. Also easy to get to Florence by bus and Siena by car. The staff are super friendly and the wine tasting is outstanding. What held it back from a 5 star is that it was just too hot. We were in Chiara and whilst upstairs had fans and window gauze, including gauze on the stairs to isolate it, the downstairs had no fans and no gauze on the windows. Italy is generally swarming with mosquitoes at this time of the year so it became a catch 22. Leave the window open and get eaten alive or close the doors, not get bitten but sweat your butt off, especially if there is heat from cooking. This can be quite easily fixed with screens and providing some tower fans, which is a simple and low cost solution. Also, whilst the view was amazing from the terraces to eat antipasto and drink wine, we felt uncomfortable with the amount of wasps that were determined to eat our food. Coming from Australia they seem quite aggressive. Whilst I know there are probably rules etc in the winery, it may pay to try to find their nests and eradicate them. It was particularly disconcerting in the pool which they seemed to love and you looked over and saw 40 or 50 of them buzzing in the pool. I'm not trying to be negative here as it really is a nice place, and it is agri-tourismo, but just those couple of things could make it awesome, also are fairly low cost. Would stay there again and probably not as big an issue in the cooler months.…
My husband and I stayed for 3 night at the end of May in the Elisa villa. The whole place was so beautiful, staff was very friendly and helpful. The winery/ accommodations are In fact within walking distance from the bus station, which is what we required as we were on foot. It takes about 25 minutes pretty well all up hill but doable. If you arrive during office hours the staff will be happy to pick you up so you don’t have to walk. Our villa was amazing, full kitchen, two bathrooms, big patio overlooking the Tuscan hills with the most spectacular views. I highly recommend staying here and when you do make sure to book yourself in for the wine and food pairing, it’s well worth it.
