Description from owner


This is the second of the three double bedrooms at " Candida's Chianti House", the MATTIA ROOM.

If you wish to book 2 or 3 rooms at the same time, please contact me for a quote on any of the rooms (Neri, Mattia or Martina) and in the notes ask for a full quote. I will be able to send you a quote for each one.


Candida's Chianti House is located just outside San Casciano in Val di Pesa, between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti and in one of the most beautiful regions in Italy.

It is not just a house, whose 3 bedrooms are rented as a Bed & Breakfast (with dinner on request), but of a world with a special magic, a place of rare beauty, with a calm and magical atmosphere, that will entangle you as soon as you step inside... the beautiful garden during the springtime will simply delight you!

Candida, the owner, with a degree in agriculture, hat designer, painter and landscape designer, will host you in her special world that includes more than 300 varieties of antique rose varieties and all kinds of plants. The house is furnished with pieces collected in travels all over Europe, most of them are actually on sale as that is Candida's main business, particularly the ones in the garden.

The living room, the dining room and the garden are available for guests to use.

There are 3 double bedrooms – Neri, Mattia and Martina - with private bathroom, available as a B&B, each room is € 90,00 PER NIGHT. Breakfast IS INCLUDED in rates.

Candida takes care of her guests' breakfast: fresh croissants and homemade jams and cakes in Candida's kitchen – and when the Tuscan sun shines (which is most of the time!), you can enjoy your breakfast in the garden.

Candida also organizes cooking classes, using quality, fresh ingredients: our own extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, herbs and fruit grown in our own garden. The cooking classes are booked when there are at least 2 participants, and cost 70 euro per person.

Dinners can be booked that same morning, if of interest, with the same fresh products used for breakfast. Cost for dinners is € 35 per person, wine excluded. A wine list is available.

At guests' disposal there are, on request, tours to nearby areas: Candida will be happy to give you any info you may need to visit the area and Tuscany.

WI-FI available. Smoking is not allowed indoors.

Very Good

“Excellent Toscan countryside stay!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2019

My partner and I stay at Candida’s house for 2 nights whilst visiting the surrounding cities. Candida and her staff are very welcoming and friendly. The house is thoughtfully decorated and the garden is just so serene and gorgeous. (Can’t imagine how beautiful it would be when all the roses bloom in spring!) We had one dinner with Candida. The food was just amazing! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Candida’s house and would love to come back in the future.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, I am so happy you have enjoyed your stay! and hope to see you again, all the best Candida
