APARTMENT CASTELLACCIO 1: 3 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 5

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Greve - VILLA IL CASTELLACCIO

5 Bedroom Villa for 10-12 people & Apartments with 2-3 bedrooms for 4-6 people.

Villa il Castellaccio lies in a panoramic position surrounded by vineyards and olive groves at Lucolena, near Greve, in the heart of the Chianti countryside. It has an independent VILLA (for 10/12 people) with its own private pool & garden and four large APARTMENTS (for 4/6 people) sharing another big swimming pool & gardens. All self catering units. Strategically placed for Florence (only 20 mins by train from nearby Figline) and a comfortable drive from Siena, San Gimignano & Arezzo, makes it an ideal home-base for combining sight seeing and relaxation. Have fun visiting medieval towns like Greve in Chianti, Castellina, Gaiole, Radda and along the way, discover typical restaurants, Castles, Wineries & Nature Reserves. On our hilltop you can find an C11th church and the ruins of the original Castle, destroyed in the C14th strife between Guelfs and Ghibellines. But after an exciting day out it’s great to get back “home” to the fresh country air and a dip in the pool !

Cooking classes and Dinners with Chef: It is possible to organize Cooking classes and Dinners (for those of you who just love the food but don't cook) with a professional Chef who comes to your kitchen on the evening you prefer- it's a great highlight to a stay at Villa il Castellaccio and very popular. You can choose from several menus, all typical Tuscan!!....your kitchen is cleaned up for you after which is nice too!

Wine tasting: We do wine and olive oil tasting in our wine cellar € 5 per person.

There is also a small museum of farming equipment from days gone by.

Trips further afield: Maybe some of you would like to explore more distant places

We can organize day trips or half day excursions to places like Rome, Siena, Venice and the Cinque terre (to name but a few).

With special permits enabling our drivers to go directly into the Historical city centres and often right up to the main monuments and places of interest, means you can concentrate your time enjoying the sights without the hassle of parking, traffic and endless walking.

Another advantage is for the Chianti wine tour; noone has to te-total for driving so you can ALL enjoy the wine!

Details for holiday apartment Castellaccio 1, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 2 Bathrooms

The rural complex of Villa il Castellaccio, once a fully working farm, is set in a beautiful panoramic position in the heart of Chianti, between Florence, Siena and Arezzo . The apartments, all recently reconstructed from the original farm buildings are furnished in style and comfort with all mod-cons .They all have their own entrances on different sides of the complex giving each a sense of privacy. They share a big terrace with gardens and the main swimming-pool, but often it will seem like you are the only guests, it's always so peaceful and quiet ! Castellaccio 1 sleeps 5 and has: a dining room with fireplace, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 single bedroom. This apartment is on the 1st floor and is reached by an external stairway. It is very luminous and has super views but does not have an immediate outside eating area though guests are welcome to use the dining facilities in the garden by the pool opposite.
Suitability:
  • not suitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
Guestbook comments from the manager
It was so nice to leave the July crowds of Florence or San Gimignano and return each day to such a beautiful home set in the vineyard-covered hills of Tuscany. The villa was in a great central location so it was easy to explore Florence, Sienna, Arezzo and the many Tuscan hilltowns (favorites were Montepulciano and Volterra). Leonardo and Roxanne could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They made reservations for us at some wonderful restaurants that we would never have found on our own. I would definitely recommend this villa.

Wonderful, Stunning, beautifully maintained

  • 5 out of 5
All I can say is WOW!! The pictures can't fully show just how beautiful this property is with the flowers, the beautiful workmanship of the renovations, and lavender and rosemary that grows all around. We loved our apartment which was clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The location is wonderful in that it is an easy train ride to Florence, and a 45 minute drive to San Gimignano. And there is a delicious restaurant 5 minutes away from the villa. Leonardo, the manager is very gracious and helpful. I especially loved the large pool which is good for lap swimming. And there is a cute Boddega for shopping near by. I had to tear myself away.

Leonardo and staff have to be the most helpful and gracious hosts in all of Chianti. We enjoyed two weeks in the most superb setting amongst the olive groves and vineyards. Our apartment was meticulously clean, the kitchen was more stocked than any other I've seen to date. We loved the pool, common area pizza oven and bbq's with open air eating areas. We made memories to last a lifetime and can't wait to plan another trip back.

nice holiday apartments in the Chianti Hills

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice and calm location in the countryside of Chianti hills with a nice view over wineyards and olive trees to the Chianti Hills. The apartments are very nice and equiped with all required utilities. The Owner is very friendly and help to organise anything you need. You can taste properties own wine and own Olive oil. The swimming pool is verry nice. A car is required for shopping of food, for trips to other sights and for visiting restaurants.

The Chianti area is a small but stunningly beautiful part of Tuscany. Explore the famous rolling hills 'Le dolci colline' depicted in Renaissance Art, and discover castles, wine cellars, Typical eating places & craftshops and the many medieval towns, like Greve, Radda, Gaiole and Castellina. Perhaps you may come upon one of the local gastronomic events(called Sagre) or an antique fair and there is always a market somewhere every day ! As we are central, you can reach most places in minimum 5 to max.40 mins. The main cities of Tuscany; Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa & Volterra are also close at hand, and don't forget the fashion outlets The Mall & Prada !! both near Figline. From there you can hop on a train and be in Florence in just 20 mins (we supply timetables). In a day you can even reach the coast for places like Le Cinque Terre and romantic Porto Venere. The nearest villages for food stores and Typical Trattorias are Lucolena and Dudda,only 1km away.

Other Activities: Cooking class/dinner,wine tasting, Day trips with chauffeur,Walking tours.

Golf: Ugolino Golf: 18 Holes, just 10 Km
