Vinaio is a spacious one bedroom, single storey cottage. It is ideal as a base for a couple wishing to explore this beautiful, unspoiled area of Tuscany or as a retreat for two who wish to relax and enjoy the tranquillity and spectacular scenery right from the privacy of their own garden.
The property has a small terraced garden at the front which is furnished with table and chairs; an ideal spot for enjoying the morning sun over breakfast. From here you enter into a large, high ceilinged, living, dining and kitchen area which is bright and airy. It is comfortably furnished with a sofa, coffee table and flat screen TV. The dining area has an oak table and traditional Tuscan chairs.

To the right is the well equipped country style kitchen. Blue painted kitchen units are enhanced by polished granite worktops and travertine tiled splash backs. The kitchen includes gas hobs, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. There is no oven.

The bedroom has a double bed with wrought iron headboard. Ample storage space is provided by the Tuscan style oak wardrobe. An electric fan provides cooling and there is a mosquito net at the window.
The living space extends out into the garden through the double doors at the back. The veranda provides a welcome spot to dine and enjoy the Chianti countryside. A barbecue is provided and sun loungers are placed on the lower terrace. The garden is very private and surrounded by mature hedging plants.

The bathroom is to be found through a door just to the left of the main entrance. After passing through the laundry area, where you will find the washing machine, you enter into a bright bathroom with large double shower.

The veranda leads down to a raised garden with sun lays enjoying sun throughout the day. The terrace has a splendid open view of the surrounding Chianti hills and is a perfect place to dine on your own private terrace.

Pros De rust in deze afgelegen mooie streek van de chianti .Ideale plaats voor uitstapjes naar dorpen en steden in de omgeving, zoals bijv Siena , Florence en San Gimignano
Cons De illustraties op jullie website geven aan bij het huisje vrij uitzicht, was misschien 5 jaar geleden maar nu niet meer! Wellicht moet een tuinman eens rustig een beetje gaan snoeien! Het was wel een teleurstelling voor ons het gebrek aan het mooie uitzicht!
Local attractions Siena, de cathedraal. San Gimignano de stad en de ijssalon op een van de pleintjes. Verder een uitstekend restaurant Bel Soggiorno met verrukkelijk eten en een schitterend uitzicht in de hoofdstraat met de blauwe vlaggen. Radda, Castellina en Greve zijn een bezoek ook zeer waard. , ook goede restaurants in die plaatsen.

Pros Das Haus ist sehr schön und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Die Lage ist sehr gut und die Terassen haben uns auch
sehr gut gefallen. Der Swimmingpool ist schön und Liegen sind
reichlich vorhanden.
Cons Uns hat alles gefallen außer der unbefestigten Straße nach Montefiorile die ist in sehr schlechtem Zustand, hat viele Schlaglöcher und müsste dringend ausgebessert werden.
Local attractions Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano und die wunderbare Umgebung. Das Restaurant in Lecchi ist sehr zu empfehlen.

Pros Ein sehr schöner, tolle Lage am Hang mit Blick über die Weinberge. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig in einer insgesamt ruhigen Anlage. Der Pool ist ausreichend und selbst wenn die meisten Gäste ihn benutzen, kann man sich immer noch abkühlen. Die angebotene Weinprobe ist ein must! Sehr empfehlenswert.
Cons Die Moskitos und sandflies sind einfach unerträglich! Man kann es kaum aushalten, so dass wir außer zum Essen am Abend nicht mehr auf der Terrasse sitzen konnten. Bei großer Hitze möchte man auch kurze Hose und Ärmel tragen. Das war bei dem Ungeziefer leider nicht möglich. Sehr schade! Schon nach einem Tag waren wir überall zerstochen. Schade, dass es keine Klimaanlage gibt, dann wäre es zumindest im Schlafraum etwas besser. Das Bad ist leider auch nicht mehr auf dem neuesten Stand. Es könnte eine Überholung gebrauchen.
Local attractions Es gibt überall angenehme Lokale, meist in und am Rand der kleineres Orte.

Pros The villa is spacious and well equipped. The location and views are excellent and provide an excellent base for exploring the Chianti region by car. Getting to Florence by train from nearby Montevarchi (as suggested by Lisa of To-Tuscany) is a stress-free option for day visits.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Local vineyard visit, trip to Siena, outlet shopping..(!)
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Super - clean, great location, exactly as descibed on the website.

Only 1 minor drawback - accommodations were close together and very quiet outdoors - almost felt the need to whisper! However that has positives also, tho maybe not ideal for all families etc.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Insect bites! - totally unrelated to our To Tuscany accommodation!
Do you have any other comments? This is our second time booking with To-Tuscany and both were excellent experiences.
The service offered is superb and we will hopefully be booking with you again in the near future and actively reccomend your site to friends and colleagues.

What were the highlights of your holiday? We had two weeks away, one in hotels, one in your accomodation. It was the first time we had done self catering and we loved it, and what a wonderful view.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    loved it. Excellent facilities, did need to go out. Nice pool as well.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The mosquitoes. We knew there would be some and bought some stuff in the UK to combat them but the wrist bands and sprays did not work at all. The chemist in Sienna was wonderful and after that first day we had no trouble.
Do you have any other comments? Would love to go again sometime

What were the highlights of your holiday? Lots of swimming and visiting the surrounding area.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accommodation was comfortable and when talking to staff all were very helpful but of course that was only when they were available. The bedding provided and changed at the end of each week was good quality.

The kitchen facilities were good as well as the layout of our unit both externally and internally.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Television supposed to have a DVD player but none was available.

The unit only had one small fan so one room had no air circulation which was most unpleasant due to the hot weather and mosquitoes. Larger power fans would also have helped to drive the mosquitoes away - we were all badly bitten after the two weeks.
Do you have any other comments? It would be nice if at the end of each week even when staying for longer, someone could come in and do a bit of cleaning. I do not know what the extra cost would be to provide an aircon unit during the peak hot weather period - we would have been willing to pay for such a facility if available.
