Location: Vignale

Vignale is a small hamlet that has a total of 6 private homes. It is located on top of a Chianti hill that gives it the luxury of a stunning view all around. Within a short drive there are three of the five famous Chianti towns: Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti.
Vignale was lovingly restored in 2002 taking special care to blend the new with the ancient creating an old hamlet that has apartments that have every modern convenience. The large pool sits on the crest of the hill overlooking the vineyards in the valley below and across the Chianti hills beyond.

In the valley below the hamlet flows the River Arbia, the historic dividing line between Florence and Siena. Nearby there are a host of wineries that are filled with gastronomic delights and a dizzying selection of wine shops.

Magnifique lieu de séjour et de repos où rien ne manque!!!!!
Cons Tout est parfait
Local attractions Nous avons beaucoup aimé les villages de Castellini, de Radda et la maison Porciatti. Belles visites de Sienne et San Gemignano et de Florence facile d'accès par le train depuis Montevarchi.

Pros Les photos sur le site étaient prometteuses... Nous n'avons pas été déçus !
Le lieu est idéal pour rayonner en Toscane. La maison est meublée avec soin et goût, le jardin tout autour est magnifique et parfaitement entretenu. La proximité des autres maisons du hameau n'est en aucun cas un problème et nos enfants ont apprécié de pouvoir se baigner avec les enfants des autres familles présentes sur le site.
Cons Les pneus de notre voiture se souviendront des dernières centaines de mètres pour accéder à la villa... mais un endroit si magique se mérite !
Local attractions Tous les hautes lieux de la Toscane sont accessibles en voiture. Sienne n'est qu'à une petite demi-heure et à partir de Sienne, la 4 voies mène à tout !

Pros Sehr schönes und geräumiges Haus. Perfekte Ausstattung! Geschmackvolle Einrichtung.
Großer, sehr gepflegter Garten mit Liegewiese und schönem Essplatz. Auch für Kiner toll zum spielen.
Sehr abgelegen auf einem einsamen Hügel, dicht bewaldete Umgebung, vom Pool aus herrlicher Blick über die Landschaft.
Absolut ruhig.
Cons Lediglich der Pool könnte besser gepflegt sein. Durch die Abgeschiedenheit des Anwesens, muß man mit mindestens 15-20 min Fahrzeit rechnen, um in den nächsten Ort zu kommen.
Local attractions Absoluter Favorit: Das kleine, traditionelle Restaurant "Grotta della Rana" in San Sano - der dazugehörige Alimentari ist sehenswert! Hervorragendes Essen zu guten Preisen, mitten in einem kleinen italienischen Dorf. Ristorante Malborghetto in Lecchi Herrlicher Innenhof, sehr gutes Essen. Osteria le Panzanelle in Panzano/Lucarelli Ein Muß sind hier die Bistecca Fiorentina und die Pici

Unfortunately, following a storm the water pump and pool pump were damaged. A new pump and tubing were required and the issue was resolved as soon as possible. The pool is now back to how it should be.

Pros Ruimte en indeling van het huis, smaakvolle inrichting, het overdekt terras, de absolute rust, schitterend panorama en centrale ligging in de Chiantistreek.
Cons Toch wel moeilijke toegangsweg (vooral de vele putten in het wegdek)
Local attractions De vele kunststeden, wijnkastelen, wijnfeesten in Greve in september, mooie landschappen. Typisch restaurant Trattoria Grotta della Rana in San Sano.

Pros The location and the garden were wondefulT.he accomobdation was very comfortable and we had a lovely weel all things considered.
Cons The house was unbelievably hot at night. The large fan in the sitting room didn't work.We advised your repesentative on arrival who indicated she 'may' be able to replace it but there were 'lots of requests for fans that week'. I have to say we weren't overly impressed witht the rep. Her primary concern was how early we could leave on our departure day and that it would be better if we left before 9am. This was slightly ironic as we arived 30 minutes after the check in time to find the house still being cleaned. There were 2 families staying in other properties whose children ran riot around the pool area meaning it was impossible to sunbathe by the pool because of the noise and the intermittent deluge when they jumped in.
Local attractions The restaurant at San Sano was a delight. There is so much to see and do in the area.

Pros Très belle maison et bien aménagée. La tranquillité et une vue absolument splendide!
Cons L'accès assez difficile. Une route en terre avec beaucoup de trous et les 600 derniers mètres en pente raide avec de gros cailloux. Dure épreuve pour les voitures à moins d'avoir une jeep 4X4.
Local attractions La Grotta della Rana à San Sano. Cuisine excellente (un risotto divin!) mais un peu chère.

Pros Quietness and privacy.
The views were wonderful especially early mornings as the sun warmed the valleys and mist slowly evaporated.
The accommodation was very spacious and kitchen well equipped.
Tuscany as a region lived up to our expectations – quite wonderful
Cons On the downside the 3 km of track especially the final track 600 m + and very steep was uncomfortable. This detail should be made available to potential visitors before booking. Also unfortunately wild boar had ruined the garded so we could not sit out on the grass. The American style drip coffee maker needs replacing – a cafeteria would have been better. The backs of the sofas were uncomfortable .
Local attractions The villages The villages of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole were delightful and the residents very friendly and helpful. Although the roads in Chianti, due to the nature of the terrain, were hilly and windy they made you slow down and take in the beauty - 1. WHAT is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?—. No time to stand beneath the boughs, and stare as long as sheep and cows: any time to... The overall holiday taking account the flights journey from Pisa, trips to Florence Siena S. Gimignano etc location and accommodation was 8.5 /10.

Cons ... we unfortunately were in Tuscany on a very hot week, and the master bedroom was very hard to ventilate = very hot at night ...

What were the highlights of your holiday? Highlight was time of the year.
First time for us in May in Tuscany. Although the bad/cool weather in the first half of May, it was very nice
compared to September (we visited Chianti most of the time after the summer).

Our top day was a very nice walk from Montepulciano to Pienza. We dropped the car in Pienza, took a bus
to Montepulciano and walked back to Pienza through the hills. The weather was very cloudy and some light rain-
showers, but perfect to hike. The colors of the Val'd Orcia in combination with the light and cloudy weather at that time
were awesome.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    This was a very nice accommodation. To be honest, it was the best one we ever had
in Tuscany. It was very nicely decorated and very well equipped with couvert, glasses, mugs etc.
Here we want to go again another time.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? If you are on holiday, you want to live outside. Have breakfast, lunch, diner outside in the garden.
That was not possible this year due to the cool weather. So, the weather had ++ and --
this year :-)
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Please add this comment to the Website :-)

The steep road to Vignale was better then what I expected from the comments on the website.
We had totally no problem to use this road, I followed the routing and instructions that were provided by
the to-tuscany staff. If I recall correctly it was improved during the winter of 2009/2010 and it worked out
very well.
