Il Nocino is a delightful Tuscan villa semi-detached to the owner's villa. It has a wonderful, furnished, stone terrace outside from which there are fantastic views across the vineyards, and olive groves up the hill to Castellina in Chianti, to which it is possible to walk.
Inside there is an open plan living area which has a kitchenette across the length of one wall. This is well equipped although has limited work space. It includes gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer section. In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table which comfortably seats six people.
A double and triple over stuffed sofas complete the furnishings of the room. There is plenty of Tuscan character due to the terracotta floor and the terracotta and wood ceiling. While a large window and a glass door provide abundant light.
A corridor leads to the sleeping area and a laundry room. Off it there is also a door giving access to the terrace. The first bedroom is a double with an iron bed and wooden wardrobe. This is the smaller of the two double rooms. The en-suite bathroom is with a shower.
At the end of corridor is a second bathroom with shower. Next to this is the more spacious double bedroom. It also has an iron bed and a double door wooden wardrobe.
The double beds cannot be made into twins.

The agriturism farm is family run and produces wine and olive oil. There is a small reception to welcome guests and with an Internet connection. It is well positioned to walk to Castellina in Chianti or to a nearby pizzeria, however in the evenings a torch is required to return to Rocca di Castellina.

Proprietaires tres acceuillant et un bel endroit, situe en plein Coeur du Chianti. En genral nous avons adorer . Les seule petite chose a tiendre conte sont . #1 pas assez de lumiere dans la cuisine., difficile de faire la caisson le soir dans le noir. #2 La villa est situe au bas d'une colline , pour marcher au village ,il y a une grande cote a monte. # 3 , en mai , c'est tres humide , alors il a fallu ajouter le chauffage . Mais encore la , en general nous avons beaucoup aimer.
Local attractions Premierement , les proprietaire " tres charmant " Des Italiens typique. La jeune Martina parle l'anglais et etais toujours disponible. On as profiter d'une degustation dans leur vignoble ( c'etait tres bien ) le village " Castellina in Chianti " a un kilometer environs est charmant . de bon restaurant , epicerie , etc. et pour terminer , la Villa est situe qu'a une vingtaine de minute de route de Sienne.

We loved this family and place. The owners were very sweet. The views are great. The wine is fantastic. The lunch with the wine tour was terrific.
The town of Castelina was one of my favorite quaint towns. We would love to return some day.


Local attractions Castelina, even though small,should not be missed - all the restaurants we tried and shops are wonderful. The tower is an easy enough climb and view is amazing. A tour and lunch at Badia a Coltibuono was suggested by a friend and loved by all - about 40 min drive.. This location is great to get to Sienna , San Gimignamo, Florence.
