la dolce vita

  • 4 of 5

la maison est idéalement située pour visiter tous les grands sites touristiques de Toscane : Pise, Volterra, San Gimignano, Sienne, Florence.... on trouve tous les aliments de base a Chianni, les locaux sont très accueillants. la maison est très agréable ainsi que la piscine. Simona (et son français parfait) nous a fait un accueil chaleureux. Merci egalement pour la documentation touristique cela nous a permis de faire de belles balades dans les environs de Chianni. Bref nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances. Un petit bémol : pas de lave-vaisselle ni de four pour un logement pour 10 c est dommage! merci simona et bonne longue vie à Pondere Carbonaia!

Great house, location and space.

  • 4 of 5

It was a great house with a beautiful location and view, wonderful (lightly salt) pool, spacious house and the owner Simona was very helpful.

It was a great family holiday and the kids enjoyed every minute of it.

We will defiantly come back again in the future.

Cosy retreat in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend a lovely week at the Podere Carbonaia in spring 2014. The owners Simona and Filippo made us feel very welcome and were exceptionally helpful. Simona speaks excellent English, so communication was no problem.

The house is very clean and well maintained, offering you everything you want for a great holiday in rural Tuscany. There are 2 bathrooms and a double bedroom downstairs, plus 2 double bedrooms and a single one upstairs. Even though there is a nice living room, dining room as well as another small sitting/dining area in front of a huge open fireplace, we enjoyed the beautiful outdoors most of the time, either at or in the pool (with salt water and an large sand filter, so no need for chlorine!), or dining al fresco on the patio. The decor of the house is rustic but very comfortable, just what you would expect from a Tuscan farmhouse.

The property is quietly located in a valley, with no direct neighbors. The town of Chianni is just a 5 minute drive away. In Chianni, you find a couple of little shops (good for everyday food shopping), and the next supermarket is approx. 20 minutes away in Casciana Terme.

Florence, Pisa, Volterra, San Giminiano are less than an hour away, even though the country roads can sometimes be somewhat challenging.

I would recommend this property for anybody who loves to be in the country, far away from the touristy crowds. If you want to discover the real Tuscany, this is the place to go.

We will definitely come again!

Lovely Tuscan Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to this lovely house and this year we had the additional attraction of the swimming pool. The house is well decorated, has everything that a family of 5 needs as well as being spacious and cool.

It is perfectly situated to visit surrounding cities such as Pisa, Luca and Florence.

We booked the train to Rome before we got to Italy and although it was a long day it was not long enough (need at least 3 days in Rome). We also booked the ferry to Elba and had a lovely day there. All this is accessible from the cottage.

The listing is perfectly accurate, the property is clean and well-maintained. The owner is there to meet you and provides a lovely welcome and comprehensive guide to the surrounding area and how best to settle in the house.

We may well be back for a 3rd time!! Thank you for providing a perfect holiday in a perfect part of Italy!

A week really getting away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful week with friends in this idyllic setting about three miles form the village of Chianni. The cottage is as good as it looks in the photos, the setting is very peaceful and you are within an hour of several beautiful towns including Pisa. The landlords were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Tuscany: good food and friendly people! Staying in Chianni means to be immersed in this genuine world!

Chianni has its on identity, but it's very closed do very important and nice centres (Pisa, Firenze, Siena, Livorno, San Gimignano, Volterra..).
