Found to the front of the old mansion house, Il Melograno retains much of its original features with terracotta tiled ceilings and floors and wooden beams throughout and with interior décor in the style of the old building. Thanks to its position, the property maintains a fresh feel in the summer and retains the warmth in the winter.



The living area is on the left of the room where you will find a dining table and a dresser.  Also in the room are two 3 seater sofas which allow you to relax whilst listening to music or watching the TV.
To the front of the apartment there is a private furnished terrace with wooden table and chairs with a large umbrella.  This is a fantastic spot for al-fresco dining whilst admiring the beautiful views across the Tuscan hills and the village of Panzano.  The terrace enjoys total privacy thanks to clever use of citrus fruit plants and potted plants.



Entering into the kitchen/living room to the right there is the fully fitted kitchen with 4 gas hobs, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and washing machine.



The corridor leads to the master bedroom with a huge bright arched window; opposite there is a walk in wardrobe and to the right an ample bathroom.

At the end of the corridor the large family bedroom consists of a double iron framed bed, an antique chest of drawers and two armchairs. Also within the large room are full size comfortable bunk beds. Off the corridor there is a large spacious bathroom with shower.

After a dip in the pool, there is a second private garden with furnished terrace for relaxing in the sun 20 metres from the apartment.  The garden is planted with typical aromatic plants, olive and fruit trees and there is also a built in BBQ area.




There are two terraces to enjoy the peace and stunning views.

Pros La localisation très centrale qui permet d'organiser beaucoup de visites en rayonnant depuis la villa. Le calme de l'endroit et la vue superbe !
Cons Le manque d'éclairage et l'absence de table au coin barbecue qui rend difficile même de prendre l'apéro pendant la cuisson des viandes (le coin est éloigné de la villa). Quelques ustensiles pour le barbecue seraient les bienvenus (au minimum une pince). Quelques verres supplémentaires par exemple pour le proseco et l'apero seraient bien utiles.
Local attractions S'il ne faut retenir qu'un restaurant c'est sans conteste l'Osteria A La Piazza. Terrasse parfaite, accueil chaleureux et excellent rapport qualité prix (aussi dans les vins) Il vaut d'ailleur mieux réserver ;-). Nous avons beaucoup aimé Castellina in Chianti (son Coop également) et un plus plus loin Arrezo (avec la foire des antiquaires le premier week-end du mois). San Giminiano vaut également le déplacement !

Pros This house is in a stunning location, it is peaceful and relaxing. It was very warm while we were there but the house is wonderfully cool inside. There is a private garden area with a BBQ which was lovely.
Cons The unsealed road to get there was very bumpy and low cars would struggle over some of the larger stones. A dishwasher would have been an added luxury as would wifi but not a necessity by any means.
Local attractions Castellina in chianti, Radda in chianti are lovely little local villages. Siena and Florence all within easy driving distance.

Pros Bel accueil de Paola à notre arrivée.
Gîte très spacieux et situé dans un endroit très calme au milieu des vignes et des oliviers. Décoré avec goût et beaucoup de charme.
Nous avons adoré la Toscane, son histoire, sa culture, ses paysages, ses petits plats savoureux et son petit vin du Chianti. Le Gîte est à proximité de très beaux petits villages, à 35 min de Sienne, à 40 min de San Gimignano, à 45 min de Florence.
La Toscane est un véritable bijou.
Nous reviendrons, c'est sûr !
Cons Une route de 2 km non revêtue pour accéder au gîte, il faudrait un 4x4... ;-) Dans la description du gîte, il parlait d'une cuisine entièrement équipée avec lave-vaisselle... nous cherchons toujours le lave-vaisselle. C'était un de nos critères indispensables pour nos vacances et force fut de constater que nous avons dû faire la vaisselle pendant toutes nos vacances... dommage ! Quelques petits ustensiles comme des planches à pain pour le petit déjeuner, une louche ou encore un fouet de cuisine auraient été un must. sinon, rien d'autre à ajouter.
Local attractions La plupart du temps, nous restions le soir dans notre gîte. Mais un restaurant à Florence nous a particulièrement plu, La Bussola. Accueil fantastique, pizzas divines et autres plats excellents. A tester ! Autre petit resto sympa à San Gimignano : Vecchie Mura. Outre la nourriture excellente, le restaurant dispose d'une terrasse qui offre une vue surprenante sur la campagne toscane. A voir et à déguster !

Pros Die absolut ruhige Lage und die schön eingerichtete Ferienwohnung.
Cons Die Zufahrt war z.T. doch etwas sehr "holprig" und steil - wenn auch mit einem "normalen" Auto zu bewältigen.
Local attractions Volpiano (sehr gutes Restaurant) Radda in Chianti: Delikatessenladen Greve in Chianti: sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten

Pros Large Bedroom. Superb bathroom facilities. Quiet location. Great Pool. Access to washing machine onsite in kitchen was excellent.
Cons No matches to light stove. Toaster was very impractical for an English breakfast. No ice trays for cold drinks, but we managed to freeze water in a bowl and break it into pieces. The drive up is 2km, but having a larger car was ok as the road is a little rough. We stayed at a place near Rhadda last that had great kitchen facilities, this one lacked a decent set of fry pans (WITH LIDS). The smallest milk pan would only remain upright when full, which was dangerous. The traditional italian coffee pot washer had worn through, so took a little getting used to - finding the right position so it would not leak water. Dog on site barked too much when other dog was taking up attention of other guests. Nice but annoying if you want peace and quiet. Little privacy where outdoor eating area located as it is right at car park entrance. On cold mornings, be aware that the umbrella will drip on you if you choose to sit outside for breakfast. BBQ a little too far from house to really invite use. If you want views and sunlight in the afternoon, be mindful of position. Choose a property that is perched on a hilltop and not the hillside.
Local attractions Close to some quaint towns. Castellina in Chianti is a great spot for lunch, shopping and so is Panzano. There are plenty of small villages to visit, some for views, some for lunch only and some for shopping only. Pienza is worth the drive. Montulccino is a must for any traveller. Be prepared though to bring your credit cards as everything there is expensive and eye catching. Hard to resist.

The owner apologies for any inconvenience and confirms that; the barking dog is no longer at Navico, there were ice cube freezer bags which the owner finds more suitable, the toaster is a common Italian type, the pots and pans will be thoroughly inspected and replaced where necessary.
