-Historic Monuments: History lovers will find much to enthuse and excite them with a clutch of buildings from centuries past. Among the highlights are the 13th-century church of St. Leonard, the bell-tower and clock, once part of the ancient castle of Lajatico and the 12th-century Municipal Palace. Over the years this building has served as a private home and seat of the Lajatico government.

-Culture: Carved into the hillside is the Teatro del Silenzio (Theatre of Silence), a purpose-built open-air theatre framed by the Lajatico hills. The venue is only open for one day of the year when Lajatico native Andrea Bocelli hosts an annual concert in July. The theatre was his idea and the setting includes an artificial lake with a large sculpture of a face at its centre.

-Events: Lajatico is proud of its culture and traditions and pays tribute to them with a variety of feasts and festivals throughout the year. Among the most important are the Feast of the Farmyard during the fourth week of June, the village fair in September and October’s Festival of Chestnuts.

The house was spacious with all the amenities you could hope for: the bedrooms were very comfortable and the sitting room excellently appointed (and the shower had excellent water pressure, which is important to me!). The location perfect. Perched at the top of a forested hill overlooking gorgeous scenery, it was a short walk to a national observatory. We had dinner in Nello's in Lajatico on our second night and can't recommend it enough. The house is ideally situated for exploring Siena, Pisa and Florence - can't wait to stay longer next time!

The farmhouse is as beautiful as the pictures show. It is roomy, comfortable and individually decorated. Chianni is a super village with 3 really good restaurants within walking distance. There are also a couple of bars, ATMs and mini markets. The Saturday market offers an excellent choice of fruit and vegetables. The farmhouse is a great base to tour Tuscany. We visited Volterra, Lajtico, San Giminjano, Florence, Lucca, Livorno and Pisa. Miria and Adriano gave us a very warm welcome, were accommodating in topping up the wifi and took great care to ensure we made the most of our visit. It farmhouse is at the bottom of a very steep stones path which is pitch dark in the evening so flat shoes and a torch are required! We would have no hesitation in recommending the farmhouse and Chianni in general. Grazie tanto, speriamo di essere di nuovo. Judith, Alan and Jamie
