In the proximity of the estate there is a great variety of small trattorias and specialty restaurants - each night you can dine in a new place (you will find a list of recommendations and helpful hints about the region in your apartment). Cooking classes for different levels or personal chef are available . The apartment (4 pax+2) is about 100 sqm., Ground floor: entrance in the living room with fireplace, very large kitchen, small bathroom with shower; sofa-bed for two available at extra cost. Second floor: 1 double bedroom, 1twin bedrooms (beds can be joined), 1 bathroom with shower plus jacuzzi tub. The two bedrooms are air-conditioned.

The apartment has its own private outside area with table and chairs, our guests can also make use of the common areas and barbecue area where you can eat. On request it is possible to use the oven and barbeque. Guest Access The estate is surrounded by a vast green area (more than two hectares) disseminated of traditional Tuscan olive trees. Beautiful isles of roses, rosemary, lavender and brooms adorn the gardens adjacent to the buildings. The shared pool (14x 6.30 mt.; open from 5th of May to 28th September) is located among the olive trees. There is also a large common area with lounges and umbrellas where guests can gather. There is also a ping pong table and a table football. The region Chianti is an area extending between Florence and Siena. It is famous for its unique landscape characterized by gently rolling hills covered by vineyards and olive trees. This land has a long history which still shines through the countless little medieval towns, small hamlets and castles scattered on the entire territory. San Gimignano, Volterra, Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti Castellina or San Casciano V.P. are just some the beautiful landmarks you can visit in the area. May be Chianti is mostly famous for its wine and olive oil and of course you can have wonderful wine experiences visiting cellars and testing different labels touring across the area but generally people associates this kind of holidays also to the food. It is not a secret that cookery here has always been one of the highest attraction and remarkable pursuit. Few places in the world can claim such an incomparable variety of dishes and typical recipes. In summer, almost everywhere, there are lots of gastronomic events very often accompanied with fairs and parade with locals dressed with period costumes and live music concerts.
