In this small familystyle hamlet, only 2 km from the next village the famous Castellina in Chianti , our sophisticated guests will find undisturbed and unspoiled nature, silence, sun, good food (cookery courses) Chianti wine, sports (trekking, biking, riding etc.) as well as culture. Surrounded by more then 2ha of wellcared parklike garden sits the imposing guest house complex which is dived in 3 apartments (2-4 Pers.) , and/or 2 semiattach...
Getting around
bus connections in the Chianti hills are limited and part only from towns, train connections exist only in the valley between major towns or cities. if you want to see the beauty of the Chianti Classico and other country area pls bring a car or ensure driver services. Castellini in Chianti with shops and restaurants is though within walking distance (20/30 min)
