Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Castelnuovo Berardenga - Vitignanello luxury chianti barn in olive grove

2 BR self catering apartment with pool, walking distance to village

Vitignanello is a fascinating restored barn offering 2 luxury countryside apartments, a marvellous panoramic garden and a large infinity pool nestled in a peaceful olive grove overlooking the vineyards providing you with the right atmosphere to make this place your dream base for a relaxing and authentic holiday in Tuscany.

Be welcomed by the nicest, warmest, Sienese owners Mauro and Marcella, who will go out of their way to make your stay truly unforgettable with their wine, their friendship, their own grown veggies and endless cultural and tourist tips.

Cuddle up near the fireplace and savour a glass of wine, while admiring the beautiful sunset.

Vitignanello is an ideal place to unwind from the stress of the city and to treat yourself to some of the gastronomic pleasures of the region: pecorino sheep cheese with a glass of the estate's fab Chianti wine are just a few.

Chianti Region: Chianti is a rather wide area of Tuscany (70,000 hectares) shaped by wonderful hills, valleys, forests and mountains running on pretty much a north/south alliance between Florence and Siena.

It is very famous for its red wine, named after the region itself and for the stunning beauty of its landscape, dotted by olive trees and lined by vineyards whose colour changing throughout the seasons make Chianti an all-year.-round wonder.

Its continental climate with a moderately low temperature in winter (3º or 4º C.) is dry and hot in summer rising over 35º C. The temperature does not swing much during the day thanks to different heights spanning from 250 to 600 meters above sea level and surpassing 800 meters in the mountains.

Chianti has been been producing superb wines since the end of the 14th, the many medieval wine estates with their gorgeous castles witness this ancient tradition. Nowadays Chianti wines, as well as its olive oil are amongst the most appreciated Italian products.

Under a Tuscan sun

  • 5 of 5

Our Vitignanello vacation was one of our best vacations ever. The hosts were very gracious and were always available to offer valuable advice on sight-seeing, shopping and restaurants. The barn is brand new and built with locally sourced material. It is modern yet fits in beautiflly with the surrounding area. Everything in the design was carefully thought out. The property is well-maintained and had everything we needed. The pool was wonderful for the very hot afternoons. We enjoyed many sunsets on the balcony of our apartment while sipping on local wine. We were perfectly located to explore the Chianti wine area as well as make a few trips to Siena for groceries and sight-seeing.We spent 2 weeks at Vitgnanello but it wasn't enough to see all the beautiful towns and treasures central Tuscany has to offer. We have fantastic memories of our stay and would recommend this property without reservation.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in Vitignanello. The House and it's surroundings are in top class. Very beautiful and peaceful landscape. The location of villa is ideal of going everywhere...of course you need a car. The nearby village (Pianella) is very small but you can get groceries and etc from there. Siena is only 12 km away from there.

Also we want to thank our host family. Everything worked more than well and they are very friendly people who helped us in everything we needed and more.

A beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Vitignanello is absolutely beautiful. It is exactly as it is pictured and described on the website. It is clean and well-maintained, and has the vibe of a much loved home. It was just too easy to develop an immediate attachment to the place.

Pianella, the closest town, and others in the vicinity, have basic amenities, restaurants, etc., and it is just a 10 minute drive to Siena. The motorway is easily accessible, making it suitable for day trips (Florence, San Gimignano, wine tours, etc); and the property itself is smack in a vineyard, surrounded by scenic drives and views in every direction. The villa itself feels homely. It is bright and airy, well-furnished (with a fully equipped kitchen) and tastefully decorated.

The owners are delightful! They were friendly, and took time and effort to help us with suggestions and directions. All in, the villa was perfect for us, and I would highly recommend it.
