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 houses, surrounded by 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.

Een goed gevoel!

  • 5 of 5

Wij genoten van een liefelijke en charmante streek, logeerden in een gezellig en zeer smaakvol ingericht huis! De locatie is een eind van de straat gelegen en daardoor ook heel rustig. Nochtans is er op een 3-tal km mogelijkheid om handelszaken te bereiken.

Er was een groot en net zwembad, waar ook de huurders die in het kleinere rode huis logeerden, van genoten. De huizen zijn zodanig gesitueerd dat er voldoende privacy is.

De gereserveerde en vriendelijke eigenaar was erg bezorgd over de rugklachten van mijn echtgenoot. Dit gaf ons dan ook een goed gevoel.

Dus, een vakantieverblijf om aan te bevelen! En, later nogmaals over te doen!

Magnifique experience

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit. Cadre magnifique et maison très bien entretenue par le propriétaire. La propriété est située en plein campagne avec le sentiment d’être isolé du monde tout en étant à proximité des villes comme Sienne (30 min), Florence (30 min) ou Castellina in Chianti (15 min)

Stefano le propriétaire nous a réservé un excellent accueil avec vin rouge et huile d’olive comme cadeaux de bienvenue. Encore une fois vivement recommandé et un grand merci pour Stefano.

Une maison idéale pour des vacances en famille!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette maison idéalement située entre Florence et Sienne. Entourée d'une forêt, d'un domaine viticole et d'une plantation d'oliviers, la maison permet de savourer le calme de la nature après les grosses journées de visite culturelle. Avec 5 enfants, la maison est idéale. Les photos reflètent exactement le style (sobre mais très joliment arrangé), la propreté irréprochable et le cadre. Le propriétaire est réactif et d'une grande discrétion et parle couramment français. Nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine (pas encore ouverte à cette saison) mais cela doit rajouter un formidable atout à la maison.

En bref, nous recommandons vivement cette maison et reviendrons très certainement!

Outstanding Tuscany Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were on a two week road trip from England with 3 adults and 4 children. The villa was our midway point and we stayed 6 nights. The house is presented just as it is in person. It is a galley kitchen but I was able to cook several meals for our family in it. The dishes are all in lounge in the cupboards, just FYI. Upon arrival Stefano, the owner, greeted us with a friendly handsake and two bottles if wine and small bottle of olive oil. We even ordered more wine and olive oil before we left. He was accommodating, friendly and flexible. We had the shower head break off and he came and fixed it within hours. The house was large enough for our group and probably would have been good for at least 3 more. The only hitch to the house was the road going to to it. It is gravel and part of it had a peak in the middle so we did drag the underneath of our van a bit. We were weighed down a great deal and did not drag once we had unloaded the van. Just take it slowly and it will be fine.

We traveled to Lucca and Pisa which was 1hr and 25 MUN away. Florence was 45 minutes away. Bologna was 1 hr 30 minutes. San Gimignano was 25 minutes away. Volpaia was 35 minutes away. Vineyards were as far as you can see in any direction! The location is central and there is plenty to do.

I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful area to stay without being in a busy city!! Also his prices are fantastic!

Une semaine super sympa

  • 5 of 5

Grâce à un gîte très bien aménagé et très bien situé. On accède très rapidement à Florence, Sienne et San Gémis niant.

Les autres villages aux alentours sont dignes d'intérêt. Accueil super sympa de la part des propriétaires. Rapport qualité / prix excellent.
