Additional Location Information

Tuscany is famous all over the world for its natural beauty and it's history. Our house combines both. It is in the highly protected area of Chianti, where wine has been made to the same recipe, virtually, since the Middle Ages. Vineyards are interspersed with woods (mostly oak and chestnut), olive groves, old meadows gone to bush with juniper trees, rosemary, thyme, sage, hazelnut trees, walnut trees, almond trees and wild roses and other flowers. Medieval towns perch on almost every hill, stone monuments to another era.
We are about 3 kms from Castellina in Chianti, a 7 minute drive by car or a 20 minute walk. Castellina could almost be called the frontier town of the 1200s, that divided Florence and Siena, two great adversaries until the 1500s when Florence finally managed to annex the democratic City State of Siena. While spending time relaxing in our peaceful surroundings and comfortable apartment, it is very easy and pleasurable to do some interesting sightseeing or just go nosing about - setting off each mid morning on shortish or longish excursions. Florence is about 37 kms (an hour's drive). Siena is 22 kms (a 25 minute drive). However, the historic medieval cities of Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino (to the south of Siena) are an easy and beautiful drive. Then there are Casole, Colle di Val d'Elsa, San Gimingnano and Volterra all a pleasurable drive too. Arezzo is not far either. And nor is the Tuscan coast, with its white sandy beaches, yacht marinas and historic medieval towns. Obviously, there are also all the Chianti medieval towns and castles: Castellina in Chianti (one of the most important and beautiful; Radda in Chianti is also very attractive and only a 10 minute drive; then there is also Panzano in Chianti and Greve in Chianti amongst others. There are all the wine estates and their cellars to visit. And eating is always an enjoyable, if serious, pastime in Tuscany. It is difficult choosing a restaurant with so many excellent trattorias and osterias to choose from.
For the days when one does not want to move, there are walks to do right from our front door; eat your heart out lunches to have under the trees; siestas to enjoy in the peaceful, balmy summer afternoons; and wine to savor in the evening during (and after) the barbecue under the stars. I can guarantee that stars like ours you will never have seen before. There are no city lights here to lessen their glory: the Milky Way strides out above you and leaves you speechless in its magnificence. The day finishes with the deepest sleep in the quietest surroundings that you could have ever wished to ask for.
