Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

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.

Barberino Val d'Elsa

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 and our gentle hills are full of shady lanes, perfect for cycling or trekking.

“Peaceful Nirvana between hectic Venice & Rome”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

After a few busy days in Venice, San Silvestro near San Donato was the perfect antidote to being all "peopled out". The vista, the pool, the wind in the olive trees and the excellent host family made our stay the perfect interlude before we headed to Rome. There are 3 restored apartments and the owners are more than obliging when it comes to meeting your needs & answering questions. You really do need a car to get there & enjoy the surrounds but they kindly picked us up in Florence & then took us to the bus station to head onwards. The town of San Donato is 3min away, has the best icecream in Italy (hand made by the girl who owns the store) a laundromat and excellent pizza! If you want Tuscany, book into this gorgeous place!
