The Tuscany region
From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer holiday makers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture.
There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany, the difficulty is really where to start!!!
Greve in Chianti
The house is situated in an old, quiet village called Ponte agli Stolli, in the famous area of Chianti Classico (10 km from Greve), a strategic point to reach the most famous Tuscan cities such as Firenze, Siena and Arezzo. It is the ideal place to spend both a relaxing and cultural holiday. The house is in the middle of nature, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The site is of untouched nature, very panoramic/romantic and charming. Walking distance to the house (200 meters) there are a grocery shops, a bar and a restaurant/pizzeria (extremely good and value for money, only open on saturadays and sundays). The house is very close to Greve in Chianti (around 10 Km, around 10\15 minutes), Florence (35 minutes by train or car), Arezzo (40 minutes by train or car), Siena and San Gimignano (1 hr by car). Nearby the house there are horse riding facilities (1km) and a swimming pool (1km). The house overlook a small river that forms some natural pools where (in the right conditions) it is possible to swim.

"absolutely marvelous experience"
This is one of the most charming places we have ever stayed in. The house has been lovingly restored with all the modern conveniences including a modern kitchen and sparkling bath rooms. The settting, with a roaring creek running under the house and a splendid little garden, couldnot be better.Although you are less than 400 yrds iff the main road the garden is an oasis of tranquility. Ideal location close to everything you want to see in Tuscany. Shopping and wineries close and very accessible. Finally, the hosts could not be more helpful. wonderful folks! You can't go wrong with this selection.

"Wonderful Villa Carlotta"
We recently spent 3 weeks at Villa Carlotta in Ponte Agli Stolli, it is a marvelous location. The villa was exactly as i had imagined a Tuscan mill to look. The location is great with lots to do and see in the area.
Than ks to Luca and family for our wonderful stay.

"An excelent deal in the hearth of Chinati"
I've been in the house for one week in Sep/10 and strogly recommend for those interested to explore Tuscany and more specifically Chianti region. It is very well located, near to Florence and other touristic spots in Chianti. The house is spacious and is a good alternative for those travelling with the family and friends. Laura, Luca and Carlota (the family which owns it) were very helpful during my stay. Certainly I would come back there in one of my next vacations.

"A home away from home and in Tuscany!"
When I found this place I thought the pictures were actually too much and that the place couldn't really be all that....my mistake! It is even better than the pictures. You have to go there to see what I mean...
It's a wonderful place in Tuscany that allows you to rest when needed and to visit the beautiful Tuscan countryside, only a short drive away...
The best thing was to actually buy the local delicacies, chianti classico, pecorino and bread and sit at "home" savouring the food and view!
A must for anyone that wants to enjoy Tuscany and feel at home...
