The Tuscany region

Barberino Val d'Elsa

The old farm of San Silvestro (45ha) is located on a hill top, about 485m above sea level, in the heart of Chianti, in the Tuscan countryside between Florence and Siena, only 27km from Florence and 30 km from Siena.

Our property is located between the medieval village of San Donato (3km) and Castellina (6km), of Etruscan and Roman origins, in the Chianti Classico area, right in the heart of Tuscany.

The farm is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, orchards and woods. The quiet location and broad views of the countryside are the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. This is also an ideal location for visiting famous art cities such as Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Giminiano, Pisa, Volterra, as well as the nearby villages of the famous Chianti Classico area: Greve, Barberino Val d'Elsa, Radda, Gaiole, Tavarnelle, San Casciano with their churches and abbeys, castles and fortresses, farmhouses and villas.

In the village of San Donato, only 3km away, there are some grocery stores, a supermarket, a pharmacy, doctors, two banks, a post office, a petrol station, wine shops where you can taste the famous Chianti Classico wines and a museum of country culture.

In the Romanesque Pieve di San Donato you can admire the baptismal font in glazed earthenware by Giovanni della Robbia.

Both San Donato and Castellina have several excellent restaurants, taverns, and inns.

In the neighbourhood there are tennis courts, a golf course, fishing and horse riding possibilities. You can rent a mountain-bike in our farm and our gentle hills are full of shady lanes, perfect for cycling or trekking.

"Remote and peaceful- a beautiful retreat!"

The Lisa apartment was booked so we stayed in the tiny studio (Gioconda), which is part of a converted barn. This property is right next to the family's farmhouse, but Andrea and his family never… More

"Agriturismo San Silvestro -- a gorgeous place in the heart of the Chianti Classico area"

We spent a unforgettable week at Agriturismo San Silvestro (Mona Lisa apartment) by end of May 2014. We appreciated the uncomplicated way of the caring owners - and we deeply enjoyed the nature, the silence, the pool and the beautiful property. It is well located between Siena, Florence (Airport 40 Min), Greve, Volterra and San Gimignano. You can find wonderful restaurants (e.g. La Toppa in San Donato, 3km) nearby, as well as good wine e.g. Casa Emma, 1.5km).

We really reccomend this place to everybody - who loves to get some energy and inspiration.

Please contact me directly, if you have further questions.

Dear S. thank you very much for your review, it has been a pleasure to have you in our farmhouse and we are really happy you really enjoyed your stay.
We hope to see you soon again and have some wine tasting together!
Kindly,
Agriturismo San SIlvestro's family

Dear Carolyn,
we are really glad to know that you still remember with great enthusiasm your stay in our farmhouse. When you want we are ready for some new wine tasting with you and your family!
We hope to see you soon again and thank you very much for the review!
Kind regards to you and all your family,
the Agriturismo San Silvestro Owners

"not as advertised"

My family (my disabled mom and dad) and myself, made reservations at this place and should have known that something was off when we had to wire the money , instead of a credit card. The woman did not… More

Dear Madam,

we are so sorry that, at your arrival, you decided not to stay at our farm-house and we are really sorry that you say we didn't answer you, we answered your father each time he wrote us after you left (on 23-03-2013 by e-mail and 2-04-2013 on Facebook).
When you asked for an accomodation your father didn't talk about your mother's health problems so we proposed you 2 bedrooms with bathroom + breakfast in the Villa for a cheaper price instead of Lisa apartment, which in that period of the year would have been very expensive due to the heating (GPL). The leaving room in the Villa is not shared with the owners, was only at your disposal as we told you when we showed you the bedrooms.
Anyway, if we had known about your mother's health problems we would never have proposed the accomodation in the Villa, indeed at your arrival, when we saw the situation we immediately offered you the Lisa apartment for the same price. And Lisa apartment has no steps, is weel-chair accessible but not adapted as written on Tripadvisor. Even though Lisa apartment was more suitable to your need you decided not to stay. We tried to do the best to solve the problem.
As regards the road, we are sorry but it's very difficult to find lighted roads out of villages in the Italian countryside and on internet is specified that the Agriturismo is on a hill top, 3 km far from the village.

Regards,
Agriturismo San Silvestro
