The family that owns this farmhouse took special care not to change too much when they began accepting guests: faded family photos, mementos of long-past journeys, and bric-a-brac of all kinds decorate the common areas. Each room is simply furnished with antiques that are typical of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Chianti—heavy wooden wardrobes, marble-top chests, and woven straw–seat chairs. There's a large pool and splendid views of the valley to the south
of Castellina from the garden.

After two wonderful stays at this lovely peaceful little country house located 0.7 klm outside of Castellina in Chianti I have to completely disagree with the previous entry. With a perfect situation in the heart of Chianti on the doorstep of one of the most charming towns I found this little inn a welcome peaceful retreat at the end of each busy day touring vineyards and villages. A carafe of local wine ordered from the tiny bar could be enjoyed
by the pool nestled in the woods before a leisurely stroll into town to enjoy one of a half dozen excellent restaurants. The rooms are comfortable if simple but certainly reflective of the Tuscan open beam farmhouse appeal. Breakfast is included and served in tiny building down a short path and is a friendly start to a day in Tuscany. This hotel is a great value.
