Review date: 31.01.2014
Pros The Venetian owners of Vecchio Frantoio have made an extrordinary restorattion of the property, I followed the process of artigianale excellence over nearly three years that you would be hard pressed to find better anywhere in the world. At the conclusion the old olive press and barn are restored into luxury accommodation in the heart of the Chianti wine region with a large private top of the range Jacuzzi and a large pool shared with the owners' two bedroom villa in the same hamlet. From the adjustable terrace pergola to finest in house details, all has been considered to make guest's stay as perfect as possible.
Cons The main pool is shared.
