Perfect Tuscan get away
This is a beautiful house that is picture perfect. It is located on a quiet road that is right next to a small village. It has a fully furnished kitchen or if you don’t want to cook it is a 5 minute walk into a gorgeous and quaint village.
The views from this house are outstanding. There are olive groves and vineyards right outside your door. We travelled with our children, ages 8 and 10 and took a hike down the road and explored a bit. It was a highlight for all of us. Stefania is delightful as well. She is kind, welcoming and very responsive.
This place is an absolute dream.
Step back in time and slow down
During our recent tour of Italy for our 40th wedding anniversary we made the decision to stay with Stefania at her renovated apartment.
Situated in the Chianti area (Greve in Chianti is 5 minutes away) below the castle was amazing. While those looking for luxury should not book here, those looking to disconnect from most of the modern trappings would be happy, as we were. 5 nights did not seem to be enough!
We also took a cooking class from Stefania, and if you stay, this should not be overlooked. A world class chef teaching you cuisine from the local area is something we will treasure for the rest of our days.
Our next trip here will definitely include another stay here. And I would love to be here in the fall now that we have seen the green of spring.
Kudos to Stefania for making our stay so wonderful!
Great hidden gem
We stayed for three nights in April. Prior to our arrival Stefania was very helpful in setting us up with things to do during our stay. She made dinner, cooking class and wine tasting arrangements for us. Once we arrived, we were amazed with this rustic, quaint and cozy apartment in the midst of Greve Chianti. The scenery was breathtaking from most of our apartment windows.
Stefania was very helpful with setting us up with breakfast basics and information about the surroundings. We took her cooking class, which was a great experience to cook with seasonal and organic ingredients. We enjoyed making the three course meal and homemade bread. Stefania was great explaining things to us and very patient with coaching our 10 years old son, who was totally absorbed with the class.
Overall, we had a great time and appreciate the hospitality of Stefania. This is a great location to get away, disconnect and enjoy great food and wine. Totally recommend
Spend more time here next time!!
We arrived in the dark hours so we weren’t able to see our surrounding area right away. We climbed the stairway and opened the door to our private apartment!! My wife and I were blown away by the simplicity and details of this 11th century dwelling!! Stefania has made this a very unique experience and we both wished we had booked more time immediately. The kitchen is old but very functional, she has waiting a bottle of the local Chianti Classico and 2 glasses on the hefty kitchen table. There is a loft area which hides all sorts of treasures and beautiful scenery out the multiple very clean windows. Past the kitchen and down the tiled hallway is our bedroom with a nice queen size bed and clear double window. Continuing down the hallway and up a few steps is the bathroom with simple freestanding tub and shower kit, sink, toilet and bidet, complemented by another small but very clear window. We woke in the morning and opened the double window to sounds of birds and distant voices in hilltop village of Montefioralle.
Surrounding this very old farmhouse are lush fields of olive trees and vineyards and minus the vehicles and occasional power line you can imagine just what it was like a long long time ago.
Stefania is very attentive to respond to any issues or questions you may have. Our biggest regret was not staying longer or trying her cooking classes.
If you want to step back in time and experience a true Tuscan experience then you should by all means make your reservation here. You will enjoy every minute of it!!
Peaceful and beautiful.
Great place to calm your frayed nerves after driving through Rome. Wish I'd have stayed longer! Also enjoyed the cooking class.
Beautiful and Peaceful
How often does one get to stay in a farmhouse built in 1100 a.d.? It was the ultimate Tuscany experience. The view is incredible. Stephania is extremely kind and cares about your comfort and overall experience. We want to come back and take cooking lessons.
It was simply pleasure to have you here and can't wait to welcoming you again.
I wish you a great rest of the trip!
