Description from owner


Share our dreamy Tuscan farmhouse with us while recharging your body and mind in a full immersion of vineyards and olive groves. Far away from city noise and crowds, this charming, 200 square meter house sleeps 6 people: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with showers, a fully-equipped, spacious kitchen, living room, several dining/lounging areas, a beautiful pool and a luxurious garden. We live in a separate apartment upstairs and are available to answer all of your questions in English, German, French and, of course, Italian!

Podere la Villa is ideal for anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful place in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region. There are a number of easy, beautiful hikes to take directly from our property that take you through vineyards and wooded areas. Or, just relax at home in one of the many lovely eating/lounging areas, or by the panoramic pool (open mid May to mid October). It is especially gorgeous here both in the Spring and in September-October during harvest.

We hope you'll agree the villa is extremely well-situated and furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Of course, we are here if you need help with anything.

Come with friends. Come with family. Come with children. We are happy to host you!


The apartment is on two levels. On the ground floor:
- a spacious loggia /entrance
- a large and fully-equipped kitchen including:
- a living and dining room with fireplace, TV, DVD, stereo, and WIFI.
- a bedroom (sleeps 2 in a queen bed) with a brand new bathroom with shower.
- a terrace shaded by a pergola, furnished with tables, chairs and BBQ.
- one large bedroom (the king size bed can also be converted into two large twin beds), a bathroom with shower. Air conditioning.
- one bedroom with two separate twin beds, a bathroom with shower. Air conditioning.


This villa is our home, and we care for our guests like extended family. Since 2005, we have enjoyed meeting interesting guests from all over the world. We are happy to share our knowledge of the local area with you, as well as learn about your background and exchange ideas. Your children are very welcome to play with our children, too!

The house has a large garden on several sides with various corners for sitting and reading, watching the sunset, and easy access for taking walks in the vineyards.

Upon your arrival, we will welcome you with a bottle of our wine made from our own vineyards as well as our own olive oil. We will also furnish the kitchen with some basic things for breakfast.

During your stay at Podere La Villa, upon request, we can arrange a typical Tuscan dinner prepared by a local chef, and/or a wine tasting of some famous Italian wines.

If you like our wine, you are certainly welcome to take some home with you. We can arrange for packing and shipping.

For stays longer than a week, a weekly cleaning with change of linens and towels is included in the price.

A laundry room is accessible from the external part of the villa.

Extra maid service or babysitting can be provided upon request.
