About the property

I Melograni del Chianti

If you love the allure of surprises and discovering things, from fine drinks to excellent food, you just cannot miss out on a holiday in Tuscany, where the whole countryside offers you an original cross-section of nature and fine examples of the works of men. “I Melograni del Chianti” farm holiday residence is located in the Tuscan hills, in the small medieval town of Talciona, a perfect barycentre in between the biggest cities of art in Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano. You can enjoy a breathtaking view from any of the apartments: the mellow profile of the Tuscan hills covered in olive groves and vineyards, and an alternation of woods and small towns that reminds us of the area’s origins and gives a picture of tranquility and peace which has mostly been forgotten.

A comfortable, charming, and friendly place.

  • 5 of 5

The host was very welcoming, warm, and helpful. She even provided a bottle of her own vinted wine for my husband's birthday. Our apartment was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The Farmhouse is reasonably close to the town of Poggibonsi with connections to other Tuscan places to see. Our only difficulty was with the GPS in our rental car, which directed us to The Farmhouse through fields and dirt roads. What should have taken 10 minutes at most took nearly an hour. That is not the fault of The Farmhouse, but the fault of the GPS navigator!

Wonderful holiday in tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

The view we had when we arrived was like in a drawn picture and the flat fulfilled all our expectations.

The italian cooking class which was offered there was a delicious and nice event.

The central position between all the famous and historical cities of tuscany was perfect.

Serena was everytime an excellent host. We felt really comfortable in I Melograni Del Chianti !

Under the Tuscan Sun

  • 5 of 5

Four of us recently stayed at this lovely place nestled near the top of a hill in the Chianti Hills region of Tuscany. Serena, the proprietor, could not have been more welcoming and her suggestions for places to eat and visit were invaluable. We had a marvelous time and can recommend this property highly.

Wonderful place to rest and discover Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip in Tuscany and i have to say that we've got lucky! Here, Serena hosts you so well that you feel at home. The place is beautiful and restful. The house is calm and full of charm, the swimming pool is big, the sights are wonderful on each side. From I Melograni you can easily visit Chianti and Tuscany. The highway is close to get quicky to Firenze or Siena. To speak the truth, there are so many things to visite that we'll go back there another summer !

In the immediate vicinity, the splendid Romanesque church of Santa Maria in Talciona, which was built in the XI century, as well as the Strozzavolpe castle, which you can clearly see was built in the Middle Ages, complete the landscape and are endearing places to visit during your walks in the vicinity of our farm holiday residence.
