Looking for a villa near Sinalunga with a Panzano area feel to it

Jump to last reply

Yahoo!!!! We are planning our 4th trip to Italy in May of 2014 (this time two couples going to parts of Tuscany and Umbria, the Amalfi Coast and Rome). We are in the very beginning stages but the plan so far is to fly in to Rome, rent a car at FCO and drive to a villa in either Tuscany or Umbria for a week. Then figure out the best way to get to Positano for about 4 days and finally end up in Rome for 4 or 5 days.

The part I need help with is where to locate for the first week (we want to stay in one place all week). On one of our trips, my wife and I stayed just outside of Panzano in an apartment in a villa that we absolutely loved. The view of olive groves and vineyards on the lovely rolling, green hills of the Chianti Classico area from our terrace was perfect.

When I draw a circle around the places we want to visit on this trip, Sinalunga is very near the center of it. I know I am probably asking the impossible but I would like to find an apartment in a villa somewhere near Sinalunga that has a terrace or balcony view of scenery something like the area near Panzano. We are looking for more than just a place to sleep – for part of the week we want to have some down time cooking and sipping wine while enjoying the apartment and the view.

I’ve done some searching and the closest thing I have found so far is the Tosca apartment in Villa Puccini. http://www.parkervillas.com/italy/tuscany/villa-puccini-tosca/6 Even though I like the apartment itself, I have a few concerns (mostly about privacy). I can’t seem to find any reviews of Villa Puccini anywhere online. Does anyone have any experience with this place?


Yea I know you are thinking if he wants a Chianti Classico view, he should stay in the Chianti Classico area - but it’s still early in the search and I’m holding out for a perfect place in a central location!!! LOL!!! So I thought I would see if anyone knows of a nice 2 or 3 bedroom apartment in a villa somewhere near Sinalunga that they would recommend. Thanks….
