Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed

We offer a very simple, low cost room to rent in our family house as we want everybody to have the possibility of enjoying this lovely corner of Chianti.

Our guests can relax outside in the gardens or up in the olive groves, listen to the birdsong, immerse themselves in the gorgeous Chianti countryside and gaze up at the stars at night.

The accommodation has its own entrance, separate from the rest of the house, opening onto a lovely terrace that looks out over the garden. The room itself is clean and cosy (that is 'mignon'!) with a large bed, an area for hanging clothes, a chest of drawers and a chair. There is a fridge, electric kettle, french coffee press and plates, cutlery and glasses are provided.

Breakfast is not provided by us as guests have everything they need in the room to organise themselves.

The bathroom is spacious with a bidet and a shower. Towels and soap are provided and a hairdryer is available.

Outside, on the terrace, there is a table with chairs for dining outside, and a barbecue that our guests are welcome to use.

Within five minutes walk from our house you reach the village of Montefioralle, one of the most beautiful in Italy, where there are two restaurants and a bar that serves snacks. The celebrated wine town of Greve in Chianti is a fifteen minute walk away through the olive groves.

There are endless possibilities for walking in the countryside starting out from our house. I can provide maps and directions and even a gps route to download onto your smartphone!

If you are travelling by public transport and need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities for a while, this is a wonderful place to relax as it is close enough to the town to walk to, yet hidden away in the woods, so total tranquility is guaranteed. I am happy to pick guests up from the bus stop in Greve and bring them up to the house.

If you are travelling by car PLEASE BEWARE, as with all the most beautiful, hidden places in Chianti our house is reached by a dirt road! We are 2km from the town of Greve and the first 700m are paved but from then on it is a dirt road. This can be very dusty in the summer months and the last 400m stretch is not very smooth, so you would need to take it very slowly.

ABOUT US - we are an English/Italian family of four elements: Mum, Dad and two teenagers. We also have a couple of very friendly dogs, a lot of cats, and all around the house there is a vast selection of wildlife that can be encountered each day - hares, foxes, deer, porcupines, badgers and sometimes wild boar. We're delighted to welcome visitors to share this unique and wonderful place which offers guests a rustic getaway from the hectic tourist trails of Tuscany. We also offer evening meals on request, so please don't hesitate to ask.

About this location

The Tuscany region

Greve in Chianti is a busy market town in the Chianti area of Tuscany. There are many excellent restaurants and bars in town and many possibilities for tasting Chianti wine, be it it an enoteca in the town itself or directly in a vineyard or even castle.

Greve can be accessed by bus from Florence if you are travelling by public transport. If you have your own car it is a great base from which to visit all the towns and hill-top villages of the Chianti area and other cities of Tuscany such as Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena.

Greve in Chianti

We are just above the town of Greve, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Next to the house there are woodlands. The village of Montefioralle is a few minutes walk away, and there are some fantastic walking trails around here if you enjoy hiking.
