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.

Pros Maison vraiment très agréable, bien construite et équipée
Magnifique vue de la piscine et des terrasses
Température supportable grâce à l'altitude
Eloignement propice au calme
Piscine très appréciée
Cons Localisation de l agence insuffisamment précisée Le réfrigérateur ferme avec difficulté et le lave-vaisselle ne lave pas correctement la vaisselle Absence de moustiquaire aux fenêtres qui permettraient leur ouverture le soir Il serait sympas de signaler les producteurs et artisans locaux Escaliers intérieurs peu propice à l'hébergement de jeunes enfants
Local attractions la maison et sa cuisine sont si agréables qu'il fait bon y rester le soir. Nous avons peu fréquenté les restaurants.

Pros The overall setting of both the villa and pool was wonderful with great views. Internally, the accommodation was very good and the pool a good size. Also, the number of villas in the Vignale complex was ideal, the pool was never overcrowded and overall it provided a very relaxing environment.
Cons I felt there should have been some basic household items on arrival - absolutely nothing was there free of charge. It's always useful to have a couple of bin liners and I think a small welcome food/drink pack would be appreciated by all guests. There were no homely touches, it very much felt like a commercial rental rather than someone's home which is a shame given what a lovely villa it is.
Local attractions Castello di Brolio and winery/restaurant. Visiting Siena and San Gimagnano. Restaurants Contrada and Al Ponte in Gaiole were both very good.

Pros Sangiovese is een prachtig gerestaureerd ruim huis op een fantastische plek.
Cons De weg naar Borgo Vignale is erg slecht, daar moet naar mijn mening duidelijker voor gewaarschuwd worden! Eigelijk is het zonder 4WD niet goed te doen.

Pros Mooie ligging, maar (zeer) moeilijk bereikbaar.
Veel informatie over huis en omgeving.
Mooi groot fornuis.
Cons Te weinig pannen en kopjes voor het toegestane aantal personen. Te weinig muggenhorren, waardoor je teveel ramen dicht moet houden. Iedere avond was er een invasie van mieren en vliegende mieren in het benedenste deel van het huis. Buiten het huis geen voldoende grote tafel en stoelen om buiten te kunnen eten.
Local attractions Beeldenpark is leuk voor volwassenen en kinderen. Beide restaurants in Vagliagli en het restaurant in San Sano (La Grotte) zijn uitstekend, ook met/voor kinderen en ze zijn gemakkelijk bereikbaar.

Sangiovese
Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Soweit sie das Haus betreffen : gepflegtes Schmwimmbecken mit super Aussicht in wunderschöner Landschaft.

Kurze Wege zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toskana.




Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Vignale - "Sangiovese" : traumhafte Lage, sehr gepflegtes Haus uns sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet.

Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen?

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Da das Haus für 6-8 Personen ausgelegt ist (wir waren 7 Personen), sollte die Küchenausstattung (Töpfe und Pfannen etc.) erweitert bzw. eine Nummer größer ausgelegt sein.
Die Schlafgelegenheit im "Study" ist ausgelegen und unbequem.
