The villa was spacious, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The welcome basket that was provided by the owner was unexpected and wonderful. The grounds, including pool and gardens were gorgeous. The views of the hamlet and the surrounding vineyards and olive groves were outstanding. The hospitality shown by the caretaker, Daniela, was above and beyond. We could have done without the rooster next door, but that is why earplugs were invented.
Local attractions Everyone should arrange to go to Daniela's tiny winery and restaurant- it is that good and she is a fantastic hostess! Other than that, Radda is a cute town with restaurants and shopping that is only about 15 minutes away. Siena is a must and is a 30 minute drive. We really liked Volterra (Etruscan stuff) and that is about 45 minutes away. It is fun to just drive around and find the small towns if you like some adventure and don't mind some interesting and not always paved roads.

+ Great view, quiet small village, good wineries around the corner, great host Daniela, big pool and Jacuzzi, enough space even for 6 people, beautiful restored old house, very clean, as its in "the middle of Chianti" most places to visit are max ~1h by car.

-Jacuzzi needs long to reach the desired temperature if not used during hot summer months (eg even in September), the rooster just on the other side of the fence might cause you problems in the first two nights then you should get used to it;) ->9/10
Local attractions Radda is where you should do your shopping (Coop market), also has some nice restaurants (eg la terrazza) and spots where you have a beautiful view over the landscape.Lecci has a great small restaurant (Malborghetto), definitely worth a visit. Castellina, San Gimignano, Greve (Falorni Macelleria and the Falorni Enoteca are a must), Monteriggioni, Lucca,,...and not to forget Siena and Florence. Wine tasting @Danielas Casanuovo di Ama and Castello di Ama (also nice restaurant) around the corner.

This was our second vist. The villa and pool cannot be faulted, however we feel it only fair to comment on 2 points. The first being that the cleaner visiting the villa 3 times a week at 10 am intruded on our relaxation ie having to be up and ready before we may have liked and secondly the cockerels next door woke us regulary from 2am onwards. Both of the above points somewhat defeats the object of a relaxing holiday in Tuscany.
Local attractions Pizza {ie and la Perla definitely worth a visit. Sienna and a bit further afield Popolonia both lovely.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

18.09.2016
OWNER COMMENT: ringraziamo i nostri ospiti per l'ottimo punteggio che ci hanno dato, a riprova dello sforzo di tutti per far trascorrere ai nostri ospiti una bella e rilassante vacanza nel Chianti. per quanto riguarda i due punti di critica, siamo molto dispiaciuti che non ci abbiano segnalato, che l'orario delle pulizie andava a disturbare il loro riposo, se ritorneranno, come hanno già fatto, basta concordare assieme un orario di loro gradimento e questo sara fatto ( cosi anche per tutti gli altri ospiti che desiderano riposare). Per il gallo che canta presto, questo ci dispiace, ma siamo in campagna e nelle fattorie accanto succede che ci sia qualche pollaio con un gallo mattiniero, speriamo che invecchiando dorma di più. A parte gli scherzi, ci dispiace molto anche di questo, vediamo se riusciamo a convincere il nostro vicino di cambiare gallo. ringrazio ancora i nostri graditi ospiti per essere ritornati e spero che malgrado questi inconvenienti abbiano un buon ricordo della loro vacanza in Chianti al "vecchio frantoio" saluti Antonio We thank our guests for the good score they have given as proof of the effort of all to make our guests spend a nice and relaxing holiday in Chianti. With regard to the two points of criticism, we are very sorry that we have not been informed at the time that cleaning was disturbing your rest. We would have happily agreed a time of your choice (also for all other guests who want to rest). For the cock crowing early, we regret this, but we are in the countryside and on farms there are some chicken coops with an early riser rooster, we hope that as he ages he will sleep more. Joking aside, we very much regret this too and will see if we can convince our neighbour to change the rooster. I thank our guests for returning and I hope that in spite of these drawbacks they will have good memories of their vacation in Chianti. Greetings Antonio

The standard of the finish to the villa and attention to detail is exceptional. The views are stunning and the accommodation is to a very high standard
The bed in the annex was too firm for our taste
Local attractions Radda in Chianti is a beautiful little town with many small restaurants and a few nice little shops. The local wine and olive oil selection is also very nice.

The Venetian owners of Vecchio Frantoio have made an extraordinary restoration of the property, I followed the process of artisan excellence over nearly three years that you would be hard pressed to find better anywhere in the world. At the conclusion the old olive press and barn are restored into luxury accommodation in the heart of the Chianti wine region with a large private top of the range Jacuzzi and a large pool shared with the owners' two bedroom villa in the same hamlet. From the adjustable terrace pergola to finest in house details, all has been considered to make guest's stay as perfect as possible. The owner has added comfortable external furniture under the terrace near the table.
Local attractions There is a winery a few paces away so a supply of local wine is on hand, within 2.5 km is the pretty village of Lecchi in Chianti with a restaurant and Paolo's famous bar, wine store and grocery store, within 7 km is hill top Chianti town of Radda in Chianti.
