A Feast for the Senses
A perfect Italian hideaway away from it all
The apartment is in a great location with the opportunity to see the real Tuscany with gorgeous scenery and within easy driving reach of Florence and Siena.
The apartment itself is basic but with Tuscany on its doorstep, with the wonderful scenery and beautiful weather we didn’t spend that long in it.
It was just what we needed and Fabio and his wife were the perfect hosts
A breathtaking view and an amazing place
waiting every morning with amazing view in the middle of olive trees and vine fields.
Spending 8 wonderfull days in the perfect close-by distance to Florence and Sienna and yet far enough away to enjoy the benefit and hospitality of the "true" Toscany without having it spoiled by too many tourists.
Charming apartment, nice and clean, and with extra towel to use at the free private pool (only used by the two apartments). We were received by our host, speaking fluently English, always smiling and friendly, giving us the instructions we needed and good advices in regards of shopping and restaurents as well, even oliveoil from his own production to brigh home as a souvenir.
We will most certain recommend this for all who enjoy a vacation in the unspoiled heart of the Chianti Classico region.
Quiet beautiful nature for relaxation
The house was easy to find based on the submitted description. Fabio and Trinidad came out happy and welcomed us and showed us the area and the apartment. It was all very beautiful and well maintained and a lovely area of natural beauty with its own pool to cool off in the hot summer, up to 40 ° C.
Fabio and Trinidad were very hospitable and we borrowed their washing machine and could just ask if we needed anything. Fabio had a lot of brochures from the cities of Tuscany and their sights that we borrowed.
Definitely a place we can recommend that you visit and we will definitely be visiting again.
We all four had a wonderfull stay at IRIS
Un sitio de ensueño y relax
Es una bonita ventana a la Naturaleza de la Toscana y desde luego un lugar entrañable con Fabio y Trinidad ,unos maravillosos anfitriones ,que con un montón de detalles hacen tu estancia muy agradable y tranquila.La casa esta muy limpia y unas vistas espectaculares. Para repetir!
I stayed here last summer with my partner. Friends joined us for the second week in the apartment upstairs. I wanted to stay forever. The owners couldn't have been more helpful (but euqually did not interfere). The countryside was breathtaking and it was easy to get into Florence by bus. I hope to spend all my summers here.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again soon.
The little town of San Polo in Chianti is situated in north-west Chianti, 13 km south east of Florence. It is surrounded by rolling hills, some as high as 700 meters above sea level covered in a patchwork of vineyards, olive groves and fields. The area is world famous for the production of the Gallo Nero Chianti Classico red wine, extra virgin olive oil and the cultivation of the Giaggiolo Iris flower used in cosmetics and perfumes. Scattered over the Chianti landscape are magnificent churches, turreted castles and ancient hamlets. We can recommend some lovely places to visit in the area where you can get the real feel of Tuscany and savour some of the delicious cuisine that this area is renowned for.
San Polo is just 2 km from Podere Albereto. Here you can find a restaurant, coffee bar, 2 small supermarkets, post office, bank and petrol station. It's worth a visit to the old church of Rubbiana (13th century) and country walks on footpaths in the midst of vineyards and olive trees.
