L'Agrifoglio is a lovely detached cottage in a tiny typical Tuscan hamlet of 18th century farmhouses called Bricciano inhabited by local people. The cottage has carefully been restored by its present owner, a English speaking artist, to provide a comfortable home with terracotta floors and ceilings supported by wooden beams throughout.

For the use of the guests of L'Agrifoglio and eighty meters from the cottage across the hamlet is the swimming pool which is surrounded by a large south facing private garden with beautiful views of the Chianti hills of vineyards, olive groves and oak forest. The owners occasionally use the pool.
The cottage boasts a lovely covered furnished terrace that has terracotta floors and the terracotta roof supported by wooden beams. This is a shaded and secluded place conveniently by the kitchen to sit and dine while enjoying the Tuscan evenings al fresco. The cottage is entered down a few steps from the terrace.
L'Agrifoglio consists of two floors. The main entrance is gained across the loggia terrace into a reception/living area. There is a comfortable sofa and lounge chairs. The room is equipped with SAT TV (news only), CD player and there is a fireplace ideal for early spring and later autumn evenings. Fire wood can be provided on request, it is paid for according to consumption. To the right side of the same room there is a fully equipped family kitchen which includes gas hobs, fridge/freezer, electric oven and dishwasher. There is a typically Tuscan dining table with six matching chairs for dining inside the cottage.

From the main living area you enter a small corridor which provides access to a bathroom with shower and the washing machine. Next to the bathroom is a bright twin bedroom with beside cabinets and reading lamps and a wardrobe. On request when booking this room can be made into a double, if you do not request it the house will be as described.

From the corridor there is a stairwell which leads up to the first floor. Upstairs there is a beautiful double bedroom with a low wooden bed and matching bedside tables with reading lamps, chest of draws and wardrobe. On the first floor there is a second small but well designed bathroom with a shower.

Across the hall is a luminous and spacious second double bedroom. It has a pretty wooden bed, dresser and wardrobe. Completing the room are two comfortable armchairs. From the windows there are lovely views of the countryside.
If you request a cot it will be made up in the upstairs bedroom unless you specify otherwise.

The owners request no pets.
At the villa, filtered fresh drinking water is available.

The aircon is by consumption: each unit is on a separate meter.
The wifi access is on the terrace outside the house only. The walls are too thick to let the rays pass through.
The owners may make occasional use of the swimming pool, but try to ensure their guests have as much privacy as possible.

Pool Info

There are several sun loungers to relax by the pool.
The pool is chlorine free and has a salt cleaning system which makes the water slightly salty.

Pros
Im typischen Stil der Toskana gebaut, ein wunderschöner friedlicher und entspannender Ort. Wir hatten das große Schwimmbad mit dem Garten und dem überdachten Liegeplatz ganz für uns alleine und genossen den weiten Blick über das Land. Hier kann man abschalten und sich erholen. Die Vermieter waren immer da, wenn wir sie brauchten, äußerst hilfsbereit und sehr sympathische und interessante Gesprächspartner. Mitten im Chiantigebiet waren zahlreiche Castellos mit Weinprobe schnell zu erreichen, auch nach Siena, Florenz und San Gimignano haben wir Tagesausflüge gemacht. Die Gegen lädt außerdem zu Wanderungen ein, wozu uns in der einen Woche leider die Zeit fehlte. Wir werden auf jeden Fall gerne wiederkommen.

Pros The location of L'Agrifoglio is simply perfect. Set on a peaceful Tuscan hillside with lovely views from the infinity pool, and yet only a few minutes drive from the nearest town where you can get provisions, good restaurants and cafes. The house itself is extremely comfortable and well equipped with many traditional features. Holly and Lucca were fantastic hosts providing fresh eggs, olive oil and salad from their garden. Holly was also very helpful with information on places to visit and local restaurants etc, All in all a wonderful holiday.
Cons Nothing
Local attractions I Galetto Brianco restaurant in nearby Gaiole serves lovely homemade food at very reasonable prices. For a more special meal we really enjoyed Lamole di Lamole which is off the beaten track on the way to Greve in Chianti.

Pros Das Haus und Anwesen (Haus der Vermieter, ein weiteres kleines, an zwei Personen zu vermietendes Haus mit separaten Pool und unser eigenes Haus mit Pool (ca. 80m entfernt)) liegt traumhaft eingebettet zwischen Olivenhainen und Weinreben. Der Pool ist so wunderschön gelegen und gepflegt wie auf den Bildern zu entnehmen. Unsere Vermieter, Holly & Luca, waren immer sehr zuvorkommend und halfen wo es nur gerade ging. Von Holly (in Englisch) und Luca (mit Händen und Füssen) haben wir viele Infos zu Ausflugszielen, Umgebung und allem Möglichen bekommen. Vielen Dank für die tolle, nie zu aufdringliche und stets zuvorkommende Betreuung! ...und natürlich Charly!
Cons Tutto bene
Local attractions Wir haben täglich Ausflüge unternommen - an "Fernzielen" besonders gefallen hat uns Siena, Pisa, Montalcino. Aber auch Voltera, San Gimiliano (bei uns sehr schwer ein Parkplatz zu finden). Schöne "Nahziele" waren 1. Greve, anschließend Burg Verrazzana und Burg Vicciomaggio; 2. Vertine & Radda; 3. Führung in Badia a Coltibuono (nur Nachmittags ab 14Uhr) Tip: 1) Wenn Florenz ein Thema ist, dann möglichst einen frühen Zug ab Montevarchi nehmen. Uffizien mindestens drei Wochen vorher online buchen wenn man nicht stundenlanges Warten auf sich nehmen will. Hop-on-Bus ist empfehlenswert (haben wir auch vorher online gebucht). 2) Pisa: Möglichst früh vor Ort sein - ab 10:00 füllt sich das Gelände merklich. Zum entspannten shoppen bietet sich anschließend Lucca an. Gelatto überall lecker, besonders in Greve, Radda und Castellina Restaurants gibt es für alle Geldbeutel in Gaiole & eins in Barbischio (teuer & gut)

Pros We loved the Villa and the attention to detail that Holly puts into making your stay cozy and comfortable. The property and Olive Groves were beautiful. We stayed in late March early April so were not able to use the beautiful new pool. The weather was gorgeous during the day a tad bit chilly at night.
Local attractions Our favourite restaurant was a little family owned Pizzeria near by called I Galletto Brianco the food was incredible, service wonderful and owners very friendly. Would definitely go back if we were back in the area.

Pros Het ontzettend vriendelijke onthaal, de adembenemende omgeving, de rust en het prachtige zwembad. alles was aanwezig : uitgeruste keuken, wasmachine, strijkijzer, vaatwasmachine, ... Lekker bronwater dat we kregen van Holly!!
Cons Enkel de weg naar het huisje is erg slecht, maar het herstellen is een hele klus, dat is jammer, verder niets van klachten.
Local attractions Kasteel Brolio is een aanrader en zeer dicht bij het huisje is het restaurant Il Papavero, lekker eten en gezellig. Voor wie iets exclusief wil : etentje in kasteel Spaltenna, verfijnd en schitterend kader.

Pros Ruhige Lagen, typisch toskanische Bausweise und Einrichtung des Hauses. Wahnsinns Pool, Luxus Pur.
Cons Das einzige was am Pool negativ zu erwähnen ist, da der Pool einige Meter vom Haus entfernt liegt. Das Haus war sehr sauber, nur hatten wir von Zeit zu Zeit einige Mitbewohner in Form von etwas größeren Spinnen.
Local attractions Sienna-tolle Stadt. Florenz haben wir mit dem Zug besucht, da es viel günstiger kommt als wieder mit dem Auto zu fahren. Allerdings hat ein Tag gereicht, weil in Florenz sehr viel Trubel war. Radda, kleines schnuckliges Bergdorf. Gaiole, das nächste Dorf am Ferienhaus, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten vorhanden, Samstag super Markt mit frischem Obst und Gemüse.

Local attractions Uns hat Gaiole sehr gut gefallen. Klein, schnuckelig und es gab alles zum kaufen, was man braucht. Als Tipp kann man bei den Vermietern den Grillabend empfehlen. Super, tolles Fleisch und guter Grillmeister(Lucca). Sienna ist eine Reise wert!!!! Wir haben die Wanderung um Gaiole gemacht. Sehr empfehlenswert.

Pros I have to say the many attraction is the pool and the comforts provided, followed very closely by the Villa itself and thirdly, the hosts, Holly & Luca. In fact a fantastic place to stay and relax. You are made very welcome form the day you arrive to the day you leave and if you are lucky as we were you may even have free eggs, which was so lovely and thoughtful of Holly & Luca. The little extras provided makes all the difference, like providing the towels, soap dispenses etc.
We were lucky to meet some of Holly's family whilst we were here and you need not worry about feeling worried about them being close by, but in fact we felt just like part of the family (thank you Holly & Luca, and not forgetting Charlie :-)).
The views are stunning and with the local wine being provided by our hosts, plus the water it was really relaxing to sit outside to chat, eat and read our books....so want to be back.
Holly & Luca was always willing to help with places to go and assist with booking us tables at the local eating establishments.
Also, what is available are many books on the local areas so unlike me, no need to take those book to decide where you might like to go.
Cons I would not say its not that I did not like but more to be prepared. The locations attracts various insects, so just make sure you have your insect repliants spray's with you (but then again I do attract them!!!)
Local attractions Local restaurant was lovely, good food, but not cheap.(15 minute walk). Pizza place which is about 40minutes walk, 10 minute drive was our favorite place.

Pros We really loved our stay at L'Agrifoglio. It was comfortable, clean, peaceful and well located. Holly and family (owners) live right nearby and Holly was so helpful. Folder left in the villa contained useful information too. The pool and surrounds are lovely but the weather was cool so we did not use the pool. We visited San Gimignano, Siena, Montepulciano, Panzano (great Sunday market and a visit to the butcher is a must), Verstine and Gaiole. The countryside is beautiful. Holly and Luca have created a beautiful property at Bricciano, of which L'Agrifoglio is part of.
Cons The last few hundred metres of road are a bit rough. We drove a small car during our stay and it was fine.
Local attractions Our favourite restaurant was IL Papavero, in the nearby village of Barbischio. Panzano was a favourite place to visit (make it a Sunday), but we did love the entire area with it's rolling hills and gorgoeus villages/towns. Bella!

Pros Excellent villa, comfortable and clean. Well equipped. Beautiful pool with stunning views. Owner on site so very helpful. All bedrooms were of a good size with comfy beds. Two good bathrooms.

Local attractions Restaurant very near called Il Papavero. It serves very good food and the waiter was quite happy to translate all the menu into English. Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra all within reasonable driving distance. You can catch a train to Florence from Montevarchi which is less stressful than trying to find a parking place in Florence.

Pros Das Haus liegt wunderschön, ist stilvoll und gemütlich, mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht (auch in der Küche ), das Ambiente hat Charme und Holly und Luca sind unglaublich nett und hilfsbereit.
Wir wollen gerne nochmal dort Urlaub machen, wenn wir den Außenbereich ein bißchen besser nutzen können - wir hatten leider außergewöhnlich mieses Wetter.
Local attractions Wir waren in Florenz, Siena, Volterra etc - wenngleich die Serpentinen die Fahrten dorthin etwas länger dauern ließen. Alles hat sich gelohnt und beeindruckend ist insbesondere auch die bezaubernde Landschaft. Wir waren weitgehend Selbstversorger - also in der näheren Umgebung nicht in Restaurants. Im Umkreis von ca 20 km haben wir beste, frische Lebensmittel ( auch Fleisch, Fisch, Muscheln etc.) erhalten!

Pros We loved the spacious villa, all of the beautiful furnishings that made it feel like a home, not a hotel. We loved the attention to detail and the absolutely lovely service and helpfulness of Holly and her family. The beauty of the property and surrounds is breathtaking. Couldn't recommend it enough. Location in Tuscany was amazing with many hamlets/villages surrounding to explore. Loved their own Olive oil which was given to us and the special delivery of a neighbours' organic red wine, along with our starter package to which a few extras were added on request. I left some belongings in the fridge, and Holly promptly contacted Linda at to-tuscany and they arranged for the item to be sent promptly to me at our destination in Rome, Thank you so much, above and beyond!!
Cons Nothing comes to mind, only the weather was freezing for a couple of days - but hardly the fault of our wonderful hosts!! Would love to return perhaps a bit earlier in the year.
Local attractions Our trip to Sienna was wonderful, all around the Gaiole in Chianti area was so beautiful,Vertine the walled village, Rada in Chianti, a very long lunch in Gaiole in Chianti at "Osteria Al Ponte", "Bellisomo"!! The rabbit was an absolute delight.

Pros Überaus nette und gastfreundliche Vermieter. Der schöne Pool mit dem wunderbaren Ausblick. Das gemütliche Haus mit der einladenden Terrasse. Die schönen Abende auf der Terrasse haben uns sehr viel Freude bereitet.
Cons Nichts! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!
Local attractions San Gimignano, Siena und Montepulciano haben uns ausgezeichnet gefallen. Die Pizzaria in Gaiole bietet freundlichen Service und ein sehr gutes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis.

Pros The owners (& their daughters), the villa, the pizza night, the swimming pool & the general location.
Cons The proximity to the main house(s) is a little closer than ideal but the owners are very mindful of their guests.
Local attractions Le Contrade (2k) has an excellent restaurant upstairs & a great bar & pizzas downstairs. There are loads of great attractions including castles with vineyards, medieval towns + its within easy reach of Sienna, Florence & San Gimignano.

Pros Die Lage in den Hügeln über Gaiole in Chianti ist wunderbar. Das Haus ist schön und wohnlich eingerichtet. Wenn es mal kälter sein sollte dann kann ich den Kamin nur empfehlen. Holly und Lucca sind hervorragende Gastgeber und Hollies Tipps für Ausflüge / Weinkauf / Markt und Eis sind auch toll. Das Haus ist etwas abgelegen (Auto 5-10 Minuten bis Gaiole) und total ruhig. Genau richtig zum entspannen.
Für einen rundum gelungenen Urlaub können wir alle ( 6 Personen ) L'Agrifoglio nur empfehlen.
Cons Die schlaglochreiche Strasse kurz vor der Einfahrt ist ein wenig gewöhnnungsbedürfitig, aber nach dem ersten Tag kein Problem mehr.
Local attractions Osteria 'Il Papavero' in Barbischio. Gelateria l'Antica Delizia in Castellina in Chianti. Siena. Castello di Brolio und die Strasse der Schlösser im Chianti. Weingut Riecine

What were the highlights of your holiday? Visiting all the nearby towns and drinking coffee in their piazza's. We were very luck with the weather, so all our photo's are filled with bright blue sky. The local wildlife was fabulous to see,
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomodation was fabulous. The size of the master bedroom is the size of the downstairs of my house. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Drinking water was provided free as it came from the local well, a lovely thought. Every utensil and appliance was available, so it made staying their very easy.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us?
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service?

What were the highlights of your holiday? The location of our rental was ideal for our purposes. We were close to all the cities that we wanted to visit. I do think that our greatest highlight was being away from the turist hoard. It gave us a chance to experience more of the real character of Tuscany. The small towns of the Chianti region have so much to offer that I think we enjoyed them the most. The food and wine is without comparison.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Pretty much what was expected. A little more rustic than anticipated but not disagreeable. The road leading to the actual property was a bet rough. I'm glad that the weather was dry as if it had been raining it could have been quite an adventure. The actual accommodation was very clean and comfortable. As in all remote locations of Europe the water could have been better but not a great deal of a problem. Owners of the property could not have been more helpful. Any and all questions were answered with the greatest of curtesy.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? I can honestly say that this vacation went off with out a hitch. The weather was fantastic. Not a drop of rain until the afternoon before we left. Could not have asked for better.
Do you have any other comments? On our last day in the Chianti region we were in the little town of Radda. We stopped at a very small outside cafe for some lunch. The weather was warm and sunny. A perfect fall day. The following morning were to leave for three nights in Rome. As we sat enjoying the food and wine we happend to mention to our waitress that tomorrow we were off to Rome. She remarked, why go to Rome when you are here in Paradise. We sat at the cafe for the better part of three hours. The food, drink,company and scenery were like a drug. When it finally came to leave I said to the waitress the indeed she was right, it was a Paradise. I can only hope to return some day and enjoy it again.

Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Gut und zweckmäßig. Insgesamt genau so wie beschrieben!
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Nein.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Cooking class with Luciana, what a terrific experience. We cooked up a five course meal and dined like kings that evening. We celebrated our 30th anniversary here at L'Agrifoglio and couldn't think of a better place to be. Market day at Panzano, day in Sienna, lazy afternoons in the main piazza of Gaiole in Chianti. There were so many highlights. The best highlight of this accommodation though is Holly herself.

what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Wonderful, wonderful accommodation. Holly, Lucca, Chiara and Giarda were a joy and couldn't have been more helpful. They treated us more like friends than guests. The villa was so comfortable, lovely and warm. The beds were to die for, lovely soft feather pillows and warm snuggly feather doonas. A beautiful atmosphere in the hamlet, with cats and dogs to say hello to each day. To say we enjoyed staying at L'Agrifoglio would be an understatement.

Did you have any unpleasant surprises? No!!
Do you have any other comments? Highly recommend L'Agrifoglio to all. I would go back tomorrow!
