Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Barberino Val d'Elsa - ISTRICI DI S.GIOVANNI

2 independent country houses : sleep 4 + sleeps 8

The property is surrounded by cypress and oak woods, olive and vineyards, dominating a little lonely valley. It is located in one of the most wooded and well preserved part of Chianti Classico area, between S.Donato in Poggio and Castellina in Chianti. It is easy to see roe-deers, even during the day, istrici (a particular kind of porcupine introduced by the Romans, emblem of one 'contrada' of Siena's palio ) and wild boars during the night.

We rent two of our houses, a small villa and a bigger country house, totally independent and separated (on two different levels of the hill) from each other. Both of the houses, surrounded by the green, are fully restored and equipped. One (unit 1019994) can give accommodation to 2/4 people and the other (unit 1228613) up to 8 people. The photos show both the units ; please pay attention to the descriptions.

Swimming pool 83 square metres wide shared with us open from the beginning of May to the beginning of October.

Minimum stay 3 days, discounts from the second week and for smaller groups in the largest house (in low season). Please email me for price.

N.B.: please check the last paragraph (bottom of rates page) for charges (utilities and stay tax) and discounts.

An Ideal Place for a Peaceful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful place to enjoy Chianti country and farm life. The house is absolutely delightful, simply but elegantly furnished, very clean, private and comfortable. Both the owner and manager were very helpful and quick to respond.

I would certainly recommend this property to anybody - in fact, I have done so many times already. Lovely little towns are nearby to visit, plenty of places to walk, and a beautiful swimming pool. I had several wonderful stays there over the years, and cannot wait to go back again!

Schönes und ruhig gelegenes Haus im Chianti-Tal

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus liegt mitten im Chiantital, rundherum die toskanische "Macchia", Olivenbäume und Weinberge. Florenz, Greve, San Gimignano und Siena sind nicht weit entfernt. Das Häuschen ist liebevoll eingerichtet, der Pool sauber und groß und schön gelegen. Man benötigt ein Auto. Ist für jedermann geeignet, auch für kleine Familien. Der Gastgeber ist freundlich. Vielen Dank noch mal.

UN DEBUT D'ETE " EN CHIANTI" ENCHANTEUR

  • 5 of 5

maison très agréable avec une vue panoramique sur la campagne Toscane

Grande discrétion du Propriétaire qui nous a gentiment fait goûter sa production de Chianti et d'huile d'olice.

très peu de kilomètres nous séparent de Florence et Sienne joyaux de la Toscane

Nous ne pouvons que recommander cet endroit.

Paradies auf Erden

  • 5 of 5

Ideale Lage zwischen Siena und Florenz, in ca. 5Min ist man auf der Superstrada, trotzdem völlig abgeschieden in herrlicher Natur und absolut ruhig. Der Besitzer stellt eigenen Wein und Olivenöl her, ist sehr freundlich und seine zurückhaltende Art ist sehr wohltuend. Auf Fragen hin gibt er gute Tips für Ausflüge.Super ist auch der herrliche Swimmingpool mit Blick auf die schöne Landschaft. Das Haus strahlt eine Liebe zum Detail aus und ist sehr sauber! Ein Fahrzeug ist durch die abgeschiedene Lage notwendig. Einkäufe sind in San Donato (ca. 2km) gut zu erledigen, ebenso Ristorante und Pizzeria vorhanden. Größere Besorgungen in Poggibonsi... Herrlicher Toskanaurlaub mit ausgezeichneter Erholung! Vielen Dank! Thomas U.

Göttliche Ruhe - Ein Ort zum Kraft tanken

  • 5 of 5

Mein Wunsch nach einem Rückzugsort aus dem hektischen Geschäftsleben sollte Wirklichkeit werden... Schon die Anfahrt über eine "Strada Bianca" entführt einen in ein ruhiges Tal umgeben von Olivenhainen und Wald. Euch erwartet ein wundervolles Anwesen eingebettet in einen Südhang. Das Anwesen ist sehr natürlich gestaltet und vermittelt Authentizität und Liebe. Genauso empfängt Euch Stefano, der Besitzer. Ich habe seine unkomplizierte und zuvorkommende Art sehr genossen. Das rote Haus ist so schön zwischen den Bäumen verborgen das es in Google Earth nicht zu sehen ist :-) Auch ist die ganze Raffinesse auf den Bilder hier nicht zu sehen. Der Eingangsbereich ist großzügig verglast so dass insgesamt sehr viel Licht ins Haus gelangt. Man hat das Gefühl direkt im freien unter den Bäumen zu stehen. Die Geräuschkulisse aus Vogelstimmen, Insekten Summen und die Rufe des Rehbocks koppeln einen ganz schnell an das natürliche Umfeld an...

Die Location ist ein idealer Ausgangsort um das Chianti zu erkunden. Ich tat das mit dem Mountain Bike und konnte eine gute Kombination aus ruhigen Nebenstraßen und "Strada Biancis" finden. Nur Radfahren im Chianti ist schon Sport. Straßen werden gern mal mit 20% über eine Kuppe geführt, so dass das MTB für mich hier die richtige Wahl war... Traumhafte Straßen mit Balkon Feeling um Castellina ...

In der nähren Umgebung (San Donato, Tavarnelle) kann man alle Dinge des tägliche Bedarfs kaufen. Und als Restaurant Tipps kann man die in anderen Rezessionen erwähnten Locations wirklich bestätigen. Ein Tipp noch ist das Buch "Osterie d´ Italia" wo weitere sehr gute Empfehlungen aus dem Slow food Netzwerk beschrieben sind. Greve in Chianti hat gleich 3 wirklich gute Adressen zu bieten...

Stefano macht einen wirklich guten biologischen Wein aus der Sangiovese Traube. Er hat mir vor Ort schon aus einem "Tischweiglas" gut geschmeckt...

zu Hause in einem großen bauchigen Glas war er noch mal um Welten besser!

Ich habe den Wunsch auf jeden Fall wieder zu kommen, nur ist es gar nicht so einfach einen freien Termin zu finden...

Danke und herzliche Grüße

Jens

Very beautiful place, quiet and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the our nicest vacations. The master of the house was very welcoming and we felt very comfortable. It was pleasure to taste the local red wine made from vineyards in the nearby hills. I can recommend this place for anyone who love the nature, the cozy home and Classic Toscana landscapes .

The property is located midway between Florence and Siena, about half an hour from both. Nearby the numberless charming hamlets, small villages, churches, castles, spots of Chianti Classico region but also S.Gimignano, with the well known tower-houses, the palaces of Colle Val d'Elsa, birthplace of Arnolfo di Cambio, the architect of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Certaldo, where Boccaccio, the author of Decameron, lived, the fortress of Monteriggioni, just a little farther the etruscan Volterra, Montalcino and Val d'Orcia, the area of thermal hot springs like for instance Bagno Vignoni, showed by Tarkovskj in Nostalghia, Pienza, magnificent example of Renaissance 'città ideale'... Excellent wines and food...

Other Activities: monuments and museums, wine tourism...
