Description from owner

Description

The 10 hectare estate of olive trees, fields and woodland is at 350 m above sea level. A spectacular view dominating the Florintine hills and even in the height of summer there is a gentle breeze in the evening so air-conditioning isn't necessary. The property has been lovingly renovated by its owners, Fabio and Trinidad, to provide comfortable holiday accommodation with all the necessary modern facilities (SAT/TV, Wi-fi internet connection, fully equipped kitchens etc.) while retaining and enhancing the authentic Tuscan features such as wooden beams, stone and cotton flooring and brick-latice windows. A large barn has been completely refurbished and divided into two holiday homes. The IRIS apartment on the ground floor and Giaggiolo on the top floor. The owners live in the main farmhouse and are always happy to provide information about what to see and do in Tuscany. Olive oil is produced and sold on the estate, and you can also admire the hand-crafted pottery and paintings created

Further details outdoors

The little town of San Polo in Chianti is situated in north-west Chianti, 13 km south east of Florence. It is surrounded by rolling hills, some as high as 700 meters above sea level covered in a patchwork of vineyards, olive groves and fields. The area is world famous for the production of the Gallo Nero Chainti Classico red wine, extra virgin olive oil and the cultivation of the Giaggiolo Iris flower used in cosmetics and perfumes. Scattered over the Chianti lanscape are magnificent churches, turreted castles and ancient hamlets. We can recommend some lovely places to visit in the area where you can get the real feel of Tuscany and savour some of the delicious cuisine that this area is renowned for.San Polo is just 2 km from Podere Albereto. Here you can find a restaurant, coffee bar, 2 small supermarkets, post office, bank and petrol station. It's worth a visit to the old church of Rubbiana (13th century) and country walks on footpaths in the midst of vineyards and olive trees.

“Fantastic place to stay”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

Just spent a week here Fabio and his wife were fantastic hosts, place was beautiful, near to Florence and Siena and surrounding areas, facilities superb couldn't have asked for more. Would recommend to anyone wanting to spend time in Tuscany up in the hills away from everyone but near enough to visit places of interest. Would definiately go back again.
