i've visited Casa Chianti twice now, both times for a long weekend once with my mother (May 2011) and the second time with my husband, mother and friends (Nov 2011). Both times we've had the most amazing stay. Christina is such a fantastic host and the cookery lessons with Elena are wonderful, I've made several of the recipes back at home. The meals with Christina, her friends and family after the cookery lessons are some of the most fantastic memories and experiences that I've had and made us feel completely welcomed into Christina's family.
The b&b is well equipped, basic, clean but very Tuscan and enchanting. The restaurant below doesn't cause any noise and the food is fantastic if you want a very easy meal! It's very well located near to Florence (take the train as recommended by Christina, much easier than driving and parking), Sienna, Chianti and lots of the lovely hilltop villages. I really couldn't recommend Casa Chianti enough and will definitely be visiting many times again.
