Reviewed April 20, 2014

I stayed at the apartment La Quercia for 5 days this week. I was there with my two daughters exploring some main Tuscany sites. The apartment was what I expected and Rosita was very welcoming and hospitable. I only saw her on the first and last day as we were out all the time driving around. She cares a lot about her guests and makes sure that all is ok. The apartment was very comfortable with all the necessities in place. Early morning was total bliss. Sitting out on the front garden listening to nature at its best, watching squirrels on trees, owls hooting, birds chirping the morning away. Peace and quiet. The location is reachable only by car. A GPS is a must to find the town of Monsanto. Closest restaurant is in Barberino Val D'Elsa, approximately 7 kilometers away. Definitely worth it. We needed up twice there for our dinners. But the great location is that Florence, Siena, pienza, Chianti areas are all within close proximity. And Rosita keeps a thick file with all the tips and hints on what to do while there. Very helpful. I would recommend this place without a doubt.

I'm thrilled to be back at the lovely Tenuta la Cipresetta--so relaxing surrounded by the forest in Chianti. Rosita is like my Italian sister making sure everything is perfect for our stay. We had incredible burrata with the new olive oil from Puglia to start with then lovely veal chops and sauteed artichokes with Rosita's Chianti. We charcoal grilled a huge steak from Cecchini in Panzano for dinner the next night.
Rosita is very responsive to the smallest things. I told her I had a small problem accessing a page on the internet and she was on the phone with her technician and it was fixed right a way. And Rosita does it with a big smile.

Room Tip: The rooms are all great however the ones upstairs have more windows and a better view.

We were in Toscany with friends in May 2013 and we chose this location after a search on TripAdvisor. Our stay was even better than what we expected. We would return anytime. The owner, Rosita, welcomed us with little attentions at our arrival and was available for all questions. We leased the appartment called "Lecchio" (there are 4 in total). The place was spic and span, and what can we say about the site (very nice pool, landscaping, private terrace for each appartment, view...etc.). The tenuta is well located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, very close to Florence, Sienna, Monterigionni, San Gimigniano and many other little villages. It is an excellent quality/price location. It is worth every dollar.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Tenuta la Cipresseta is a villa with a spacious garden, located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, in the Sant'Agnese nature reserve, which is one of the few in the world containing spectacular hills covered with naturally propagated cypress trees. The villa stands on a hill which overlooks an enchanted landscape; the ruins of an ancient castle, old Tuscan farmhouses, olive groves, vineyards and the perfectly preserved Paneretta castle, - one of the best in Chianti - can be seen like in the view from a terrace on a picture postcard.The villa consists of four, very comfortable, fully equipped apartments, each with its own exclusive, furnished garden. The landscape and the view, the lack of roads in the surroundings (the only road to reach the villa finishes in the woods and no other roads can be seen or heard from the villa), the woods full of cypress trees, oaks and holm oaks, the vineyards and olive groves surrounding the villa and the typical atmosphere of this land with its warm, natural colours all add up to create a cosy, magical, relaxing atmosphere. The pool can be reached from the large garden surrounding the villa, it was designed and built amongst the olives and vines where peace reigns supreme; and it is far enough from the apartments and their private gardens to guarantee the utmost privacy and tranquillity. The garden contains a fine cypress wood, lots of olive and fruit trees and is enhanced by beds of multicoloured rose bushes and aromatic plants.The Tenuta la Cipresseta is the ideal place for those who love to stay in the heart of Chianti Classico, be it to enjoy a completely relaxing holiday or to discover the delights of Tuscany. As a matter of fact, at the Tenuta la Cipresseta (La Cipresseta Estate) you can enjoy the peace of country life, indulge in strolls among the olives, vines and cypress trees and discover light, barely perceivable hills crossed by pathways and dirt tracks. The Tenuta la Cipresseta is also the perfect starting point for day trips: in a few hours you can visit the nearby Tuscan cities of art (Florence 35 km., Siena 30 km., San Gimignano 15 km., Volterra 40 km., Monteriggioni 20 km. etc.), not to mention the small hamlets and medieval villages, evocatively steeped in tradition, on which the history of the Chianti Classico area is based and which have made it famous throughout the world. The villa stands in a place which is easily reached from the major roads and is adapted to any requirement. ... more   less
