Description from owner


In the Chianti hills between Florence and Siena, and very close to Panzano, Tuscany, Italy: in a sunny clearing, next to our own home, a converted farmhouse, the Fienile is an old barn which we have carefully restored and decorated.

This is the cottage we use for visiting friends and which we are happy to rent out when it is available. So it is a genuine taste of Tuscan living, not just a holiday home rented out all year round.

The cottage has its own outside area and the property is surrounded by 30 hectares of wood with plenty of open, sunny spaces.

On the map we are right next to the 'a' in Chianti - so really at the heart of this delightful region, near to all the most beautiful sites!

Getting around

A car is essential for most touring, but if you prefer a rest from driving and finding parking, there is a handy bus in to Florence (and even to Siena) which can be caught from Panzano or Radda.

Interaction with guest

We live right next door so are happy to provide information, tourist advice and chat about life in our part of the world. We are just as happy to let our guests enjoy the peace and quiet and independence of the Fienile cottage. Whatever people prefer...

House rules

We need our guests to know that there are quite a few stairs both inside and outside the cottage, so it might not be suitable for people with mobility problems and very small, adventurous children. Pets are allowed but we now have a dog of our own, who loves company but he is the owner here! As regards smoking, if our guests can smoke outside that will be no problem.
