Stay in Castellina in Chianti or Greve in Chianti?

Jump to last reply

We are 6 adults looking to stay in the Chianti region for 4 nights. I had hoped to get an apartment with a kitchen that is either in a quaint town, or a short (10min) walk to town. This is proving harder than I thought!

I have heard Castellina in Chianti is nice. And since I have a couple options there, and in Greve in Chianti, can anyone help me decide which is better? (or Panzano).

What I'm looking for: I've been to Montepulciano, Volterra - and like those pedestrian-only streets/hill town atmosphere. I don't know whether Castellina in Chianti or Greve in Chianti are similar types of towns. Please help!

Also, we aren't really looking to cook in the kitchen, but having at least a frig is nice. I'm down to:
- Castellina in Chianti - none of these have kitchens though: Hotel Colle Etrusco Salviolpi, Albergo Il Colombaio, or Villa Cristina
- Greve in Chianti - these have kitchens: a couple AirBnBs in a pasta factory in Greve in Chianti. Many don't have availability for our dates in May. But other suggestions are welcome, and I'll check them out.

Thanks!
