Some guests asked me recently where do I go when I am in the Chianti on holiday, so here are some ideas:
For authentic grocery shopping: Porciattis delicatessen in Radda in Chianti.
For a cup of coffee or a glass of Prosecco: Paolos bar in Lecchi in Chianti.
For dinners at great value: Le Forchette Restaurant in Radda in Chianti.
For a lazy steak in chianti sauce: Marlborghetto Restaurant in Lecchi in chianti.
a well deserved dinner (or lunch) after a lovely walk from Radda to
Volpaia through the chianti countryside: La Bottega restaurant.
For the best ice creams: you have to visit San Gimignano.
For the best photos: the Val d'Orcia area of Tuscany, just to the south of Siena.
