Lovely villa within a vine yard, with stunning views across the valley.
Very spacious and great outside area.
The pool is a short walk down the lane, again with great views.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. They offer wine tasting onsite plus the wine and olive oil they produce is available to purchase.
Local attractions Pizza restaurant at the top of the lane is very good.

We were a group of seven who found the location breath taking and the villa well equipped and spacious. There were lots of kitchen items to use and many areas indoors and out of doors which gave the group lots of flexibility. The pool was well maintained and the family were extremely friendly and helpful towards us. The air conditioning was a bonus in the very hot weather.
Local attractions The town of Castellina is small, attractive and relaxed - within easy walking distance of our villa. We also visited Siena; Florence; Monteriggioni and San Gimignano which were all delightful in different ways. The local restaurant 'Re Gallo', underneath the castle was very good, and provided real home-cooked specialities of the area.

Possibly the most beautiful place we've ever been to the views are to die for. The villa is very spacious and perfectly equipped. A short walk to the town centre which has supermarket. Shops . Cafe and restaurants. The host are amazing and will make you feel perfectly are home and help you with anything you may need. The wine they make on site is excellent. We would also like to recommend Andrea he is a personal chef which comes along to the villa and cooks up a beautiful feast and also tidys up after himself, the food he cooks was amazing (highly recommended)
Local attractions Martina has a list of all the best restaurants in the area and we tried most of them and they were all lovely.

Very spacious, well equipped villa. Really friendly family who checked us in and helped out with any queries. Pool was lovely. The town itself was everything we wanted with good choice of restaurants, wine shops and a coop supermarket. Stunning views and lovely large terrace.
The only thing we would change would be better shutters in the bedroom windows to block out the morning sun but this is very minor and overall the villa was fabulous.
Local attractions Easy to drive to Siena and San Gimiginano plus smaller Tuscan hill towns for day trips.

La terrasse avec une belle vue sur la campagne.
L'espace des chambres.
L'îlot central de la cuisine (très convivial).
La gentillesse des propriétaires et le repas qui y est servi, les aliments proposés étaient délicieux avec des recettes traditionnelles.
Le manque de clarté dans le bas de la maison, surtout au niveau de la cuisine, le soir travailler dans l'évier était difficile (nous l'avons gentiment fait remarquer à la propriétaire qui va y remédier).
La piscine qui est éloignée de la location mais ce sont des détails qui n'ont en rien gâché notre séjour.

Large private terrace, great views and fantastic barbeque. Good sized bedrooms were ideal for a group of four couples. Proximity to Castellina in Chianti was useful; evening meals out meant no-one needed to drive.
A few sun loungers by the villa would have been nice, as the pool is a short walk away.
Local attractions The pizzeria at the top of the drive (Fondaccio dai Dottori) was great, especially by providing us with pizzas on our first night after a 11pm arrival at the villa. The gelateria in Castellina was incredible. We also enjoyed a really good meal in Taverna Squarcialupi.
