Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Greve in Chianti, Tuscany
We offer a very simple, low cost room to rent in our family house as we want everybody to have the possibility of enjoying this lovely corner of Chianti.

Our guests can relax outside in the gardens or up in the olive groves, listen to the birdsong, immerse themselves in the gorgeous Chianti countryside and gaze up at the stars at night.

From the moment we arrived all the stress & anxiety melted away. The villa is set in the middle of vineyards. The air is clean and the wind carries the sweet smell of rosemary and the sound of birds and the fragrance of all things...More

Magic place in magic Chianti. Hard to find the way, so you have to follow the directions from the host (when in Tuscany, don't believe google maps). But when you get there you'll experience idyllic atmosphere. The house is in the middle of vineyard. Really...More

About the neighborhood
We are just above the town of Greve (2km away), surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Next to the house there are woodlands. The village of Montefioralle is a few minutes walk away, and there are some fantastic walking trails around here if you enjoy hiking.
Getting around
In order to fully explore the Chianti region a car is essential as there are no public transport options between villages.

There are regular buses between Greve and Florence, but to visit Siena you would need to take the bus to Florence then another one to Siena.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Florence or Pisa: 29.8 mi
Railway: Firenze S.M.N.: 17.4 mi
If you are coming by car we send you detailed directions as you cannot find our house using a gps!

Otherwise, if you are coming by bus from Florence you take the Sita bus, number 365, from the bus station (opposite the Santa Maria Novella train station). Alight in Greve in Chianti and I will be there to pick you up.
