Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 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.

Magnifique séjour en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour. La maison est très jolie, bien équipée et confortable. Nous avons pu profiter tous les soirs de la cheminée. La campagne aux alentours permet de se détendre dans le calme, tout en étant à proximité des lieux à visiter : Florence, Sienne, San Giminiano...au cœur du Chianti.

Merci à Stefano et Hans pour leur accueil.

Amazing Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in Tuscany. The house was beautiful and clean with three full bathrooms and three bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. It is located on an olive and wine growing property with gorgeous vistas. There is also a swimming pool, although we were too late in the year to take advantage of it. Stefano, the owner was often on site and there is a full time care taker to make sure all your needs are met.

The property is located in the Chianti area and we visited the numerous surrounding small villages for sightseeing, markets and delicious meals. Would I recommend this place or come back again - you bet!!!

Fantastisch huis in Toscane!

  • 5 of 5

Drie heerlijke weken vakantie gevierd op deze prachtige plek met ons gezin (2 volwassenen, 3 kinderen tussen 11 en 17). Fantastisch huis: ruime kamers, mooi terras, BBQ, geweldig zwembad. Van alle gemakken voorzien. Mooi gelegen op een heuvel in het bos, aan het einde van een onverharde weg van ruim één km, tussen olijfbomen en wijngaarden. Centraal gelegen in Toscane, precies tussen Florence en Siena - genoeg mooie plaatsjes in de omgeving (waarvoor je wel even de auto moet pakken). Eigenaar is heel behulpzaam. Aanrader!

Most enjoyable stay in yellow house in Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

We found the "yellow house" to be an excellent property, which was in top condition upon our arrival. Our party consisted of four adults and two children. The house is well situated for day trips to Florence, Sienna, and other Tuscan hill towns. The three bedrooms are spacious and provide plenty of storage. There are two full baths upstairs and a bath with shower downstairs. The modest sized kitchen is serviceable and all necessary items are provided, including a coffee maker. There is a small washer but clothes need to be dried on an available drying rack. As newcomers to the area we would have benefitted from a listing of recommended establishments in the most immediate area. Examples are bakeries, small grocery stores, restaurants and wine tasting venues. All in all, we recommend the yellow house highly.

Great vacation in beautiful Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our one and a half week vacation in the Yellow House.

Located in a calm and peaceful area (in the midst of a forest), the house was clean, spacious and very well-maintained. We especially appreciated the modern bathrooms (three in total; all recently refurbished). There are a lot of amenities including a bath tub, washing machine, dish washer, oven, microwave and wireless LAN (which works perfectly).

The property offers a lot of space for kids to play and run around in (we stayed with two young children).

A lot of attractions can be reached by car in less than one hour. We visited beautiful Florence, Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano - all of which are very much worth the visit.

Supermarkets and Pizzerias can be found in nearby San Donato (only 5-10 minutes by car) and Poggibonsi (15 minutes by car).

The pool is spacious and very well-maintained offering a magnificient view over a nearby valley and forest.

The owner is very friendly and relaxed. We greatly enjoyed his delicious wine and olive oil.

Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend the Yellow House to our friends and family anytime!

Excellent wines and food...
