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 Die Lage ist top. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet.
Der Service vor Ort ist sehr gut, man hat eine defekte Tür umgehend repariert.
Cons Die Anfahrt ist zwar nicht so gefährlich wie in vielen Bewertungen beschrieben, allerdings ist sie auf dauer mühsam, besonders, wenn sie mehrmals pro Tag gefahren werden muss. Die Betten sind sehr hart und der Gartensitzplatz ist dunkel und etwas abgeschieden.
Local attractions Restaurant Malborghetto, das Weingut Castello di Ama und Greve in Chianti

Cons Vignale est quand meme assez éloigné de ttout d'autant plus que le chemin d'acces est vraiment difficile.des rideaux dans la chambre principale seraient les bienvenus donc réveil aux aurores.

Pros Die Lage ist tramhaft schön und die Wohnung ist exklusiv.
Cons Leider hat mir die Anfahrt zu dem Objekt überhaupt nicht gefallen. Wir waren mit dem Motorrad unterwegs und die extrem steile Zufahrt auf dem lockeren Schotter ist lebensgefährlich, so dass wir die Wohnung nicht beziehen konnten. Also ibn diesem Punkt müsste sich etwas ändern. Entweder die Zufahrtswege nachhaltig verbessern oder in Ihrem Angebot darauf hinweisen, dass nur mit Offrodfahrzeugen die Wohnung gefahrlos angefahren werden kann

Pros Keine störende Lärmbelästigungen und die schöne Lage am Berg.
Cons Die lange ( 3 Km ) nicht asphaltierte, wirklich äußerst schlechte Zufahrt. Die unserer Meinung nach mangelhafte Reinigung des Pools. In der 2. Woche war das Wasser sehr trüb - Sichtweite 50 cm. Aber auch die vereinbarte Reinigung des Hauses und der Wäschetausch - was trotz Reklamation nicht geklappt hat!

Pros Het plaatje klopte volledig. De website biedt een perfecte weergave van de vakantiewoning zoals die werkelijk is. Alle comfort is aanwezig in het huis.
Cons De weg naar het vakantiehuis ligt er zoals we reeds op voorhand vermoedden zeer slecht bij. Onze buren hebben erdoor lekke band gehad, maar al bij al hoorde het wel bij het avontuur. Tip: Betere aanduiding naar het vakantiehuis zou meer dan wenselijk zijn.
Local attractions San Gimignano (50km) is zeer prachtig en pitoresk Restaurant in San Sano viel ietwat tegen, we kwamen aan rond 20u30 en hebben pas om 12u kunnen eten. Firenze was fenomenaal prachtig! Kortom Toscane kan ons over het algemeen heel erg bekoren!

Pros Beautiful location, great pool, quiet, comfortable, perfect for some privacy and lots of interaction with friends staying at Torre Vecchia. Loved having two bathrooms upstairs by the bedrooms.
Cons Indoor seating area not that conducive to small groups; dining table yes, living area not so much. Overall location a bit more remote than we expected.
Local attractions San Sano was charming, Radda as well. Volpaia was wonderful, loved the restaurant there. Loved the proximity to Siena. Il Fiasco made dinner at our villa one night -- it was a highlight of the week.

Pros Es war alles wie in der Beschreibung beschrieben, ruhig erholsam und schön.
Cons Der Anfahrtsweg war eine Katastrophe, wir wundern uns, dass wir es überhaupt gefunden haben. Als wir Vin Santo endlich erreichten, war am ausgemachten Parkplatz kein Kuvert mit unserem Namen. Gott sei Dank war jemand aus einem anderen Haus da und hat uns die Übergabe des Schlüssels erklärt. Es war uns zu einsam, wir fanden auch die Entfernung zu den nächsten Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sehr beschwerlich. Wir hatten Besuch von einem Zornnatterpaar, was uns weniger gefiel
Local attractions Wir haben nur einen Ausflug unternommen, da wir froh waren, dass wir den Weg wieder fanden.

What were the highlights of your stay?    The views from the lovely pool and villa. The wildlife - fireflies wild boar deer porcupine and diving swallows. Visits to Siena, Florence and San Giomignano
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    beautiful environment in remote peaceful spot down a long very rough road
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Hit a pot hole on rough drive up to villa damaging suspension and making car undriveable
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Very helpful cleaner and her boyfriend who waited at villa to welcome us and helped us sort out injured car. Also helpful staff available on the end of phone in Tuscany who sorted taxi to take us to pick up replacement car

Vin Santo
Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die Landschaft, die Kultur und auch das Essen
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gepflegt sauber großzügig und schön.
Die Zufahrt ist leider fast unzumutbar, was wir allerdings schon bei Buchung wußten bzw. ahnten.
Aber dass die Strasse (der Feldweg) so schlecht ist, hätten wir uns nicht gedacht.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Keine
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Im Haus Vin Santo sollte ein besserer Fußabstreifen angebracht werden. Jetzt liegt dort eine Gummimatte die es nicht verhindert, dass bei Regenwetter der ganze Schmutz an ndenSchuhen in das schöne Wohnzimmer getragen wird. Die Kosten für eine wirkungsvolle Matte sind sicherlich gering im Vergleich zum Ärgerniss eines nassen Fußbodens im Wohnzimmer.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Discovering some little hill towns and their restaurants that we'd missed last year.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent. Just as good as last year.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Rain on the middle Saturday. All day!
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Another excellent stay at Vin Santo enjoyed by all the family. Have already booked again for next year. Thanks very much.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The panoramic views from the bedrooms (which I didn't expect from the photos on the website) and the pool area. Sitting on the covered terrace with my book sipping a bellini before dinner. The wonderful pool itself. Eating all meals outside. The weather. Ice-cream!
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The reality was even better than the photos. It was clean and spacious and very well equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bed linen high quality (no sign of the plastic mattress cover mentioned on a previous review). The kitchen had everything you needed and enough crockery and cutlery to have a load in the dishwasher and still enough to use. Both shower rooms were well equipped with good water pressure. Lovely thick, soft towels. Mozzie screens in all rooms. Lots of information about how to work the appliances and interesting places to visit.

The outside areas were lovely - huge terrace with furniture and big sunshade outside the front door and another covered terrace by the barbecue. The lavender and rosemary has matured considerably since the photos on the website were taken, making the covered terrace a very private area. The front terrace, although next to another property, never felt overlooked as huge terracotta flower pots had been strategically placed to ensure everyone's privacy. Good quality garden furniture on both terraces and at the poolside.

The little touches like the bottle of wine from the owners and the personal photos they had in an album showing the property being built made you feel like you were being welcomed into their home and not just to a holiday let they had to make money.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The road up to Vignale was as bad as reported, however our Fiat Punto did make it up there easily enough in first, albeit with a few clunks on the exhaust on the way back down. We didn't venture out at night because of this, but that did save us a fortune in restaurant bills, so we didn't mind.

Do you have any other comments? Best testimonial I can give is that within a fortnight of returning we booked Vin Santo again for two weeks next August!
