Great Chianti vinyard location near Greve - close to all the sights - Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano. Quiet peaceful spot with amazing views across the valley. Nice pool area. Self catering apartments are rustic and BBQ's are available. The hosts, Lorenzo and Caotrina are extremely helpful and friendly. We will return!
We chose La Viola which was a two bedroom cottage, one of several cottages on the vineyard. The atmosphere of the site is tranquil and quiet, ideal for a get away from everything and has an outdoor swimming pool and sunbeds to chill in.The view which overlooks a vista of a complex of vineyards which flows to the horizon which is spell binding at sunset.
You need transport as the site is quite isolated but there are plenty of shops and restaurants in Greve which is a short drive away as is Figline in the opposite direction.
Using this location it is ideal for exploring the Chianti region as well as historical sites as Florence which is quine near by.
If you want to get the Tuscana feel and the taste of Chianti this is definitely the place to consider.
We had a week long stay at Antico Borgo di Sugame in May. We were very happy with everything (except the weather!!!). The views were amazing, the cottage/apartment was cute and cosy (unfortunately we had to use the heating, but that worked very well) and the owners were extremely helpful and pleasant. The pool is a few minutes walk and in a stunning location and it is great you can buy wine and olive oil produced by the vineyard on site really easily. The cottage/apartment was clean and had good facilities/was well equipped. It is worth noting it is more rustic than modern but we liked this! Loved having open grassy spaces straight from the door with the most amazing views. Eating outside was special with the views and location. We would return.
We loved the location in such beautiful setting, the pool is wonderful with the most fantastic view of the valley. The apartment was spacious and well equipped with typical Tuscan interior. Most importantly we could relax here after days out sightseeing and watch the beautiful sunsets. Really welcoming hosts on hand to offer advice on places to visit and eat, we will definitely be visiting again.
Beautiful Villa - Rosa- very comfortable and everything you need is supplied. Very well appointed kitchen just like home. The location is amazing with gorgeous views over the Vineyard. Beautiful outdoor spaces for relaxing at any time of day including a fantastic swimming pool. First class wine, olive oil and honey can be purchased which is produced on site. Would recommend you have a car however it is a great location with an easy drive of 6km to local village Grieve with wonderful cafes, restaurants and supermarket. Very easy to get to Florence which is only 22 km away, catch the local bus from Grieve. Would highly recommend a holiday at Antico Borgo di Sugame.
We are approaching our third visit to Sugame, family of five with children aged 19, 16 and 11. We live in Melbourne Australia.
