Totally relaxing informal stay on the edge of Castellini. New single story bungalows divided into 4 apartments and an older farm house with 6 rooms, in a small working wine/olive oil property. Spacious grounds, very nice though not perfectly manicured, including a pleasant clean pool surrounded by flowers and scrubs looking out over the fields to the town. The apartments are large and spotless and have a full kitchen, well equipped for self catering from the local specialty food and produce stores. There’s a small garden area outside each apartment to eat outside and kick back in the sun.
A charming walk through the field (down then up, ¼ mile) brings you straight into town. Castellini is classic small Chianti market town, with a pedestrian center of traditional buildings and an old church but not a large Rennaissance old town.
Friendly people running the place, but only there for check in at specific times (3-6pm). Otherwise make other arrangements. Free bottle of wine and some pre-packaged breakfast items for the first morning, after that you go buy your own. Internet available, fast but connection did not always work. Overall, this is not a classy villa experience, but it is Tuscan farm country in the sun. The whole atmosphere is very relaxed and casual, if you don’t mind this you will love the place after 24 hours
