Great stay.Great location to explore Tuscany.Had a wonderful vacation. Nice owner. Good wine. Salute!
The property is one of three in a small Campo about one kilometre outside Lamole in Chianti. Artist and architect owners, Pia and Maurizio, have renovated and decorated the centuries old house with great taste and attention to detail. The kitchen is fully equiped, the beds are comfortable and the linen is first class.The location is wonderful, very quite and with great views. There is a world class restaurant in Lamole and only a short drive away, the tiny medieval village of Valpaia is home to another lovely osteria and wine bar. Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano are all within about 40 minutes by car and the driving through Chianti is second to none with good, winding roads and stunning scenery and views. Highly recommended!
Set in the beautiful hills of Chianti, near the lovely town of Greve. We enjoyed living in this charming country farmhouse for a few days. It's in a good location for traveling around the hill towns of Tuscany.
My extended family completely enjoyed our stay. The villa is in a beautiful setting with a fantastic rose garden and views of the Chianti countryside. It was very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We cooked in a couple of nights with food bought at the market in Greve. The nearby Restarante Lamole is excellent. The hosts were very helpful in providing directions, maps and suggested side trips. The only negative is the winding 7 km road to Lamole from Greve.
We loved our holiday in this quiet, peaceful location. This comfortable villa is a barn conversion by the owner, an architect, with trompe d'oeil murals in the bedrooms by his wife. The villa is well equiped with dishwasher, washing machine, CD player, TV, cooker, fridge, etc. Located high up, from the garden there are some fabulous views over the Tuscan hills and nearby vineyards. For wildlife enthusiasts there are walks in the extensive local woods, deer - which we heard but didn't see - and plenty of birds to identify. The small hamlet of Lamole is about 5 miles from the main road with a turning just south of Greve in Chianti - the villa is a further half mile on from Lamole. We enjoyed two delicious meals at the local Ristoro di Lamole which has very friendly English speaking staff and which also sells a range of local wines, cheeses and salamis. There is a supermarket in Greve in Chianti, wine shops, and an excellent butcher in the main square. Thoroughly recommended.
