Our Thoughts
A cosy and pretty villa with spacious living areas and lovely views. This villa is ideal for a couple with a child, or for three friends who want to spend some well-deserved quality time in the countryside. While it’s peaceful here, it’s far from dull, thanks to the beautiful town of Castellina just 1km away, and of course the pool which is a very short walk from the front door. A delightful getaway.

Notes
1 double bed – cannot be converted into twins.
1 single bed.
1 bathroom with shower (no en-suite).

Rocca di Castellina is a working wine and olive oil estate just under 1km from Castellina in Chianti. On the property there are three villas rented plus the owner's residence, and the farm buildings. The entire farm is surrounded by vineyards and olive grove, and has marvelous views down the valley and onto the rolling Tuscan hills beyond.

The pool is above the main building of the property. It's located about halfway between them and the independent cottage. It's a lovely large pool with fantastic views through the olive groves and down the valley onto the hills beyond.

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.

The pool is located on a slope, about half way between the main agriturism buildings and the Capanna Leopoldina. It is a lovely area, protected by olive groves. To one side is a typical Tuscan forest while the other side looks through the olive trees down the valley towards Colle Val d'Elsa and Monteriggioni, and the rolling hills beyond.

The area is paved with local stone and terracotta, and furnished with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas, making it a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Tuscany.
It is a large 14x6 metre pool, 1.4 to 2.4 metres deep. It's open from May to end of September, weather permitting.

A lovely villa owned by lovely people. Just perfect! If you are looking to enjoy Tuscany and the Chianti region then this is for you. Only one minor point which didn’t spoil a thing is the description of the walk into Castellina. It is walkable but over difficult ground unless you walk the road which is steep and long. Not what you want if dressed for a romantic dinner.
Local attractions Florence is beautiful but to many people. 2.5 hours queuing is not uncommon for the popular sights. Get there by train from Pogginbonsi. It’s easy.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:19.06.2018
Thank you so much for your great review! The owner confirms that the nearest town is Castellina in Chianti - about 1km away. There are 2 ways to reach Castellina - along the paved road and along the vineyard. Both ways are uphill on the way out. If the vineyard path is chosen, this is unpaved and therefore across a dirt track.
