Trip Report Villa Pecille in Panzano in Chianti (Tuscany)

Jump to last reply

My family and I just returned from Italy. We stayed at the Villa Pecille in Panzano in Chianti (Tuscany)

I can not say enough good things about this place. It was wonderful!! The accomodations were awesome!! Our apartment was called "La Vigna". It consisted of 2 huge bedrooms each with their own full bath including a huge tub. The third bedroom consisted of a sofa bed and bathroom with a shower. This room could also be used as a separate living area and had a door to the private yard. The common living area was also very large and had a full kitchen with a dining area. I felt like I was in a castle every night when I went up to bed. The whole villa was absolutely breathtaking. The vineyard and the olive tree groves were right outside the building. There were hedges of lavender, rosemary and sage growing everwhere and the smells were heavenly. The villa has a pool and a laundry room for its guests along with a meeting room. The owner, Giovanna Manetti and the receptionist Gabriele Becattini were surpurb to work with. They were very accomodating to every request.
The village of Panzano in Chianti was a short walk from the Villa. Dario Cecchini, the famous butcher, has his shop and restaurants in Panzano. There are several good restaurants in the town. We especially liked Oltre il Giardino Trattoria. Stefano Salvadori, the owner of Academia Del Buon Gusto (The School of Good Taste), has a gourmet food shop that is most interesting and he is a warm and inviting person.
I know that I sound like I am on the Panzano "board of tourism", but I would return there every year if I could.
