Pros Quiet. Nice views. At the heart of Chianti area. Since most of us (neighbors) were out most of the time (visiting) we hardly coincided in the common areas (we could enjoy the swimming pool as if it was private). The owner was very supportive and nice. Overall, great place to stay in the Tuscany.
Cons Air conditioning will be a plus. Microwave could be another plus. For the rest is very well equipped.
Local attractions It's location is perfect to explore Tuscany. 10 min away of Castellina and 15min away of the highway.

Pros Superbe endroit avec vues magnifiques à 360°sur la Toscane- Chianti. Belle propriété, au calme, très beau coin piscine. Petit agritourisme de 3 locations, ce qui est très agréable pour la tranquilité.
Belle situation pour visiter la Toscane dans son ensemble, et plus particulièrement le Chianti, Sienne, Florence, San Gimignano et autres villages toscans.
Cons Chemin empierré de 3,5km pour atteindre la propriété, mais on s'habitue et c'est le prix à payer pour avoir une telle tranquilité... Vaisselle un peu juste pour 4 personnes, malgé le lave-vaisselle. Location sans climatisation, ce qui est dommage pour un séjour en été; mais 2 ventilateurs sont à disposition.
Local attractions Visite de Sienne, Florence... à proximité. Sympatique restaurant à Castellina in Chianti ainsi qu'un bar à glace excellent...

Olivo
What were the highlights of your holiday? We celebrated my mothers 80th birthday at Olivo. The biggest highlight of the holiday was seeing the serenity on her face when we first looked out at the view on the first evening of our stay at Olivo. My mother, sister and I enjoyed painting the landscapes. This was my daughters (age 18yrs) first trip to Europe and she loved the beauty of the countryside and she and her cousin enjoyed the lovely pool! We all enjoyed coming back to Olivo at the end of the day with our fresh produce from the market and cooking beautifull meals. We also had many unplanned but enjoyable adventures in the pursuit of an open grocery store. Definitly glad to have the recommendation of GPS!
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomidation was perfect for us, absolutely beautiful and in a perfect location to the sites we wished to see. The road to the accomodation did have a very steep bumpy corner that we were not able to navigate without scraping the underside of our car but it was worth it to get to the view we enjoyed from the villa.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? I did know from the reviews of this accomodation that the drive was steep, one person noted that it took him two tries to get up the road, but I thought how hard could it be? Well with 5 people and all our luggage we didn't make it up our first try and had to unload and make another run at it! The trip up the road became a daily challenge and kind of fun, we were good at it by the end of the week. I would recommend a vehicle with higher clearance than we had which was an alfa romeo station wagon.
Do you have any other comments? Thank you so very much, this was a perfect holiday. We will keep fond memories of our time in Tuscany. We loved Cornino!

What were the highlights of your holiday? Mornings and sunsets, beautifull area.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Great accomodation.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Please change the sofas, they are ugly don't match the ambiance of the villa and have dust (bad for allergies). I believe that if the sofas are changed and the beds have better quality matresses, Olivo would not have any faults at alll, as a matter of fact it would be an incredible place to stay and I would return any time.
Do you have any other comments? I believe that it is a very special place, just have to make a few adjustments. We had an incredible time and part of it was because of the setting and your fascilities.

Thanks,
