La Valle is a restored hay barn that lays on the hillside 300 metres walk (or 2km drive) from the exquisite village of Lecchi in Chianti. Surrounded by tracts of serene and timeless countryside La Valle can be found nestled amongst olives and vines in the sublime beauty of the Chianti landscape affording vistas decorated with the medieval castles of Monte Luco and Brolio beyond.

In addition to aesthetic pleasures, this region offers exceptional cuisine, enhanced by many of Italy's greatest wines, virtually every village possesses a noteworthy Trattoria where you can enjoy food unrivalled in its refined simplicity and Lecchi within 300 meters and San Sano within 3 km are no exceptions.

La Valle is at the end of a 500 meter private road which also acts as a foot path that passes the front iron gates of the house and down to Lecchi. There are extensive private gardens that are totally fenced with beautiful lawns and planted areas and paths to lead you from terrace to terrace and down to the pool and into the small olive grove at the foot of the land.

La Valle is on two levels that are joined by external stairs. The ground floor entrance is from the lower terrace and enters the kitchen dining area, ahead and the living area to the right. The modern kitchen is well equipped and fitted with gas hobs, electric oven, microwave oven, and fridge freezer. This well designed space has dining table and chairs laid in front of the kitchen area which in turn lead out onto the lower terrace with table and chairs.



To the right an arch leads to the living area with SAT TV, DVD and CD player. There is an open fire place and a sofa, armchair and coffee table, the large window opens to the views across the valley and the double doors lead out the lawns.

To the other side of the ground floor the corridor leads onto an ample double bedroom to the right and a bathroom with shower next to it. Sharing the bathroom and on the other side of the corridor is a larger bedroom which has a splendid opening onto the gardens and lawns. There is small laundry room at the end of the corridor with a washing machine.



The external terracotta stairs take you to the large upper terrace furnished with table and chairs, from here the vistas are even more dominant and the splendid Brolio Castle can been seen in the distance.


You enter into the second kitchen dining area, this kitchen is also well fitted and smaller than the kitchen on the ground floor, there is a table and chairs and to the right is a living area with fire place, TV and a sofa.


Ahead and to the right is the bedroom furnished in reproduction Tuscany farmhouse style, there is window with magnificent views. To the left as you enter is the ensuite bathroom with shower - here too there is a window which looks across the valley.

3 double rooms.
Double beds cannot be converted into twins.

Internet WI-FI - available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.




There is parking inside the fenced property

Roberta & Onario are perfect hosts. We had two potentially serious issues whilst staying at the villa, one with the water supply and the other with the power following a major storm. Both were resolved in less than an hour! Outstanding. The only reason for not rating everything "Excellent" is the fact that the lovely owners do not speak English. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Local attractions Il Malborghetto. Absolutely superb.

We had a wonderful family holiday year.

The house was beautiful and wonderfully equipped. Very private and tucked away in the forest. And just a walk away from Lecchi, which was convenient.

Garden and pool were also enjoyed.

We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
Local attractions Malborgettho Restaurant in Lecchi. We did a cooking class this with the owner Simone - which was a highlight of our trip. Radda was a great town, plenty of shopping and eating options. Brolio Castle was also pretty interesting. Capanelle winery on the other side of the hill was our favourite winery - but there about a hundred we didn't even get to.

excellent location, beautiful views, nice walk to the village, wonderful landscaping
keyholder did not speak english so checkin was a joke, the beds were not comfortable,turning the stove on shorted out the electricity and we were unable to explain this to the keyholder, the washing machine was tiny and there was no dryer, because it was a rainey week this was a huge hassel for us
Local attractions the restaurant in the adjoining village was terrific
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

21.10.2015
Thank you for your review. The owner apologises for the difficulty with the language barrier. They confirm that they are available themselves by phone for any help needed. The stove was checked and fixed - the short circuit was caused by spilt milk flooding the tank. There is no tumble dryer listed at this property.

Wonderful welcome from Roberta & Aurelio with home made cake and wine.
Beautiful gardens, grounds, location and views to die for - all better than the photos on website.
Well equipped, spacious, and WIFI service better than at home.
Layout enables privacy, quiet space if part of group needs it.
We loved it, 20 somethings and 60's alike!
The local biting flies and insects.
Local attractions Alberghetto in Lecchi is just one of many great restaurants, La Grotta dela Rana in San Sano, La Botte in Vagliagli are some others. Wonderful, beautiful Siena is only 30 minutes away, Firenze less than an hour, and Monteriggioni also close by. But this lovely part of Chianti is full of gorgeous places, views and people. And the wine and olive oil from Casnuova di Ama just up the road!!!

Local attractions Greve in Chianti (Metzgerei Falorni ist ein Muss) sowie Siena sind tolle Ausflugsziele. Absolut empfehlenswert ist in Lecchi in Chianti das Restaurant "Malborghetto", das fußläufig leicht zu erreichen ist und mit erstklassiger toskanischer Küche aufwartet, gepaart mit super Service sowie aufmerksame Freundlichkeit!

Beautiful location. Perfect garden - couldn't be better - totally private and well maintained.
No dislikes. It would be helpful, because the owners don't speak English, to have a file or book which contained some information in different languages, detailing, most importantly, emergency information, e.g. Local doctor, hospital, amenities within the area and instructions on the household facilities.
Local information is always very helpful and would be very useful to have.
Local attractions We enjoyed visiting many towns and villages in the local area.

We hebben 2 weken lang genoten van het verblijf in het vakantie huis La Valle.
Bij aankomst stonden de eigenaren Roberta en Aurelio ons al op te wachten, waarbij alles zo goed als mogelijk werd uitgelegd over het huis, ondanks de taal barrière.
Het huis is op een zeer mooie locatie, waar veel rust en privacy is. Het huis en tuin worden erg goed onderhouden, en hebben dus ook geen gebreken kunnen constateren.
Het dorpje Lecchi is op loopafstand waar 's ochtends vers brood gehaald kan worden, na een wandeling van 5 minuten. Het zwembad werd voor ons wat eerder klaargemaakt voor gebruik, waar we iedere dag dankbaar gebruik van hebben gemaakt. Ook zijn er verschillende plekjes buiten om te zitten. Roberta heeft 2 avonden voor ons gekookt, wat zeer goed is bevallen, een aanrader! 's avonds bij schemering lopen er herten langs het hek rondom het huis. Al met al een hele mooie vakantie in de Chianti
Als er iets valt te klagen... De stoelen buiten zouden wat meer comfort kunnen hebben.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti is een kwartiertje rijden met leuke winkeltjes en een Coop voor de dagelijkse boodschappen, waar in principe alles is te krijgen. Ook is er een goede slager in de winkelstraat zelf. Castallini in Chianti is een leuk dorpje om te bezichtigen, wat veel weg heeft van Radda. Siena is ruim een half uur rijden, waar parkeren makkelijk is bij parkeer gelegendheid "francesco". Hier neem je 5 roltrappen omhoog, en staat bijna in het centrum, dichtbij piaza del campo. Florence is anderhalf uur rijden. Wij hebben de trein vanaf Montivarchi genomen, waarbij de trein je direct in het centrum afzet, en op loopafstand van alle bezienswaardigheden bent. Castello Brolio is 20 minuten rijden en een leuk uitje met mooi uitzicht.

The outside space is stunning, totally private with beautiful views, well maintained gardens, various terraces for sun or shade at every time of day, and superb clean pool with loungers, shady sitting area - delightful!
The inside of the villa is immaculately clean, not a speck of dirt anywhere. The kitchen was well equipped including extras like tinfoil, washing up liquid etc. (we knew there was no dishwasher).
The owner Roberta and her husband were kindness itself, allowing us to rent midweek to midweek since we were there for l'Eroica race at the start of October, keeping the pool open for us, and meeting us on arrival with wine and cake.
The villa suited our family needs (grandparents in separate area upstairs, family downstairs) so we could meet up or have privacy as needed.
The location suited us to be near Gaiole for start of l'Eroica race.
The inside was somewhat gloomy in the evenings since the low lighting was quite difficult to read by. The sitting areas, both upstairs and downstairs not especially comfortable. The seating upstairs especially was not adequate for even a couple - we could not sit together on the tiny sofa, the only seating apart from dining chairs.
The location was really remote, down a long unmade road and then a very steep access road. Might be too remote for some.
I was terrified of breaking Roberta's china and glass ornaments which were just everywhere and locked all these away as soon as we arrived! Language problems as they don't speak any English meant we misunderstood about leaving time and procedure. But they are so nice and willing to help, the nicest owners I have come across.
Local attractions Ristorante Malborgheto in nearby Lecchi was stunning. You can walk there, or drive in two minutes. Simone the owner provides fantastic food, lovely ambience and setting... And cookery courses. Don't miss this place! Had lovely meal also at Badia a Coltibuono and tour of winery. Siena was an easy drive away... The Duomo was amazing inside, the highlight of the tour. Radda, Volpaiai and Castellina in Chianti were very pleasant places to visit also. L'Eroica race, our reason for coming, was brilliant fun!

Beautiful villa, lovely gardens and pool, set in fabulous countryside. The keyholders couldn't have been nicer or more helpful - very nice people.
A little bit too isolated for our party and too many insects attracted to us when swimming (not the owners' fault!)
Local attractions Small village within walking distance, which was lovely. A bar/restaurant, another bar and a restaurant plus a little shop that sold everything. The nearby town of Radda has a large supermarket, lots of small shops and restaurants and is an interesting place to visit.
