Stayed with Candida for three nights and enjoyed two dinners that she cooked for us.
The house is absolutely fantastic and Candida's artistic flare make it very unique. Sitting on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful valley it is picture perfect. The rooms were large and very comfortable with a well appointed bathroom. Quiet, very quiet....
And the meals multiple course of excellent food....breakfasts were excellent with a nice variety.
I will never forget laying in the hammock tied to an apricot tree with song birds nearby and an expansive view of the quintessential Tuscan countryside...not sure why I left?
Candida is an excellent hostess providing great travel tips and wonderful conversation.
Thanks you Candida for the wonderful experience and I hope that we cross paths again sometime again

Candida is the perfect host; caring, loving and intelligent. She has a collection of garden furniture and ornaments and the outdoors of her farm house is impaccible. We loved the location, and next time we shall reserve the upstairs room(s) as they seem to have a nicer view. All in all, lovely.
We stayed four nights at Candida's Chianti House after completing a 12 day Med cruise. When we arrived here after a chaotic trip from Venice we we awe-struck. The grounds on which this 17th century farmhouse sits are unbelievablly beautiful and the views are breath taking. The guest rooms are comfortable, charming, and equiped with 21st century facilities. The house is filled with the charm and personality of it's owner and proprietor, Candida Bing. She is a welcoming, charming hostess with a flair for cooking delicious meals using ingredients from her garden. She was extremely helpful with driving directions to local sites. We feel we made a new friend and discovered a Tuscan paradise.
I stayed at Candida's Chianti House with my daughter and her husband. The B&B is located in the country with a breathtaking view of the Tuscany Hills. There are three guest bedrooms, each with it's own full bath. We had a very nice breakfast on both days, complete with Candida's homemade jams from her own fruit trees. Candida is a wonderful Hostess, and offered us Prosecco in the evening along with hot tea. Our beds were quite comfortable. The house is tastefully decorated and I enjoyed looking at all of the artwork and photos, some of which was painted by Candida herself. I would recommend this to future renters.
My husband and I just recently stayed at Candida's B&B for 5 nights October 2013, we were received very well by the host Miss Candida and her lovely help Mary Jane. I having never been to a B&B before was not quite sure what to expect but what Miss Candida offered was beyond my expectations.
Her home is very wonderfully filled with all sorts of unique and lovely treasures that make it so charming and cozy to relax in, and the grounds are equally beguiling with the little treasures that abound everywhere.
This is just the surface of things that you will experience should you choose to book with Candida. She and Mary every morning laid out an expansive selection of foods along with juice and coffee, much more than was possible to eat but the variety was appreciated. However as wonderful as breakfast was her evening meals were AMAZING and she is most excellent at presenting food that is very much to what is eaten in that region as well as explaining it's origins.
The rooms and bathrooms were very neat and clean as well as being stocked well with fresh towels each day. She does have free internet access however it was having some issues while we were there, but Miss Candida kindly offered the use of her personal computer for any pressing matters.
Miss Candida was very informative as to things that should not be missed while exploring the neighboring towns, as well informing us of the history of them. She gave very exceptional directions on how to reach the different locations
To sum it up we had a very lovely stay there and would definitely recommend her place to anyone, and should we ever find ourselves able to return to Tuscany we will book with her again
