We learned about Fagiolari from friends who had stayed there several times in the past. Giulietta has spent many years creating a quiet oasis in the Tuscany countryside. It lies at the end of a rough dirt road and was originally the workers' house for the villa that you drive past on the way to Fagiolari.
The grounds are beautiful and restful. You'll want to schedule at least one afternoon (or even a whole day) to have a picnic, relax by the pool, and enjoy the solitude.
Our room was rustic, but reasonably comfortable. It was in a small building behind the main house, just across a small walkway, 10 steps from the dining room and kitchen.
Giulietta conducts cooking classes on the property. You can participate if you want, or just enjoy the results as we did. If you let Giulietta know ahead of time, you can eat dinner at Fagiolari. She and her students create a wonderful feast for a communal table.
Much of Chianti can be easily visited by day-trips from Fagiolari. Giulietta furnishes each guest room with a wonderful little guide that gives detailed directions to towns, restaurants, and other attractions in the area.
Keep in mind when you book at Fagiolari that your quiet rustic experience can also come with bugs. During our own stay, we did battle with a swarm of stinging ants, despite the window screens. This type of thing probably doesn't happen often, and it doesn't keep us from recommending Fagiolari, but take note that it's a possibility, in case you really don't like bugs.
