Yellow house

Ground floor : a living and dining room (extensible table up to 10 people with 8 chairs, sofa, other seats, fireplace) leads to the kitchen and to one of the bathrooms. First floor : 2 master bedrooms, another bedroom with 2 bunk beds and 2 bathrooms. A stone path, which goes through the wood (150mt), leads to the pool 83 square metres wide. The pool is shared with us and the guests of the red house, open from May to September.

About the property


The property is located midway between Florence and Siena, about half an hour from both, surrounded by cypress and oak woods, olive and vineyards, and it dominates a little lonely valley. It is placed in one of the most wooded and well preserved parts of Chianti Classico area (renowned for its wines and food) between S.Donato in Poggio and Castellina in Chianti. The quiet atmosphere makes It easy to see roe-deers, even during daylight hours, istrici (a peculiar kind of porcupine introduced by the Romans, emblem of a 'Contrada' of Siena's Palio)squirrels, birds, hedgehogs....

We rent two of our houses, a small villa and a bigger country house, totally separated from one another (they are on two different levels of the hill). Both houses, surrounded by the green, are fully restored and equipped. The Red House (unit 1019994) can accommodate 2 to 4 guests while and the Yellow House (unit 1228613) can welcome up to 8 people. The photos show both of the units; please pay attention to the descriptions.

Guests can also access our swimming pool: it is 83 square metres wide and open from the middle of April to the middle of October.

Rentals of two weeks or more will lead to a discount. Please email me for price.

N.B.: please check the last paragraph (bottom of rates page) for damage deposit and additional charges (utilities and stay tax).

About Stefano Baldi Lanfranchi

We produce wine and olive oil, following the rules of organic farming, electricity comes from renewable energy. We speak english, french, german, dutch, danish and of course italian.

Why Stefano Baldi Lanfranchi chose Barberino Val D'elsa

Despite the private setting, the cities of Florence and Siena are easily reachable by car with a 40 minutes ride. You can bike or drive to the numberless charming hamlets, small villages, churches, castles, panoramic spots of Chianti nearby, wander in the woods. In addition some examples of what the surroundings have to offer are: S.Gimignano, with the well known tower-houses; S.Appiano; the palaces of Colle Val d'Elsa, birthplace of Arnolfo di Cambio, the architect of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence; Certaldo, where Boccaccio, the author of Decameron, lived; the fortress of Monteriggioni; just a little farther away you can reach the etruscan city of Volterra; Montalcino, worldwide famous for “Brunello” wine production and Val d’Orcia; the area of thermal hot springs of which Bagno Vignoni, the setting of many scenes from the film Nostalghia by film director Tarkovskij, is a beautiful representation; Pienza, magnificent example of the Renaissance 'città ideale’; the sea in Cecina…

What makes this house unique

The property is extremely quiet since the nearest country road is 1.1 km far, our closest neighbours live at 1.5 km distance. Nonetheless, the village of S.Donato in Poggio (4 km) will provide you with most of the things you might need during your stay. There you will find a well supplied small supermarket (also open on Sunday mornings), a pharmacy, a bank, a post office, restaurants, bars, a bakery and other shops.

Semplicemente fantastico

  • 5 of 5

La proprietà è bellissima, perfetta e razionale negli interni, con divisione zona notte e giorno: piano di sopra zona notte (3 camere da letto e 2 bagni) e sotto bellissima zona giorno con salotto e pranzo (con bellissimo camino) cucina e altro bagno. Noi eravamo 2 famiglie con bambini e siamo stati splendidamente. Tutta la casa ha finestre sull' incantevole bosco e sui colli circostanti. Il salotto ha due enormi finestre da cui si gode un panorama rilassante. Gli interni sono curatissimi e nel più puro stile toscano, dal cotto agli armadi.

La proprietà si trova in posizione perfetta per visitare praticamente tutta la Toscana: Firenze e Siena a mezz'ora ma anche Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza e altre bellezze toscane visitabili tranquillamente in giornata. La zona in cui si trova la casa è di per sé un gioiello, e il Chianti è a disposizione in qualunque direzione si vada. Davvero un soggiorno splendido.

Beautiful, Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 5 night stay in the Yellow House. The property is rural and feels a million miles away but is a great location for exploring Florence, Sienna and the countryside of Tuscany.

The house is well equipped with all that you'll need. Mostly we went out to dinner but the nights we stayed in the kitchen allowed us to prepare simple meals.

The outdoor space is beautiful, it was a little too cool for us to use the pool but the pool area is wonderful. Amazing views all around you.

The bedrooms were pretty and the bathrooms clean and modern. The mattress in our room was very comfortable. The house was big enough for the five of us, though the living room is on the small side. When the weather is nice, this doesn't matter as you'll be using the outside areas more than inside.

Stefano was responsive and answered all of our questions, gave us great recommendations and provided us with wine from his vineyard.

If we return to this area, we would stay again!

Exceptionel holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, located in one of the rare forest landscapes of Tuscany. Centrally located between Florence and Siena (about 30 minutes drive in high season) in the heart of Chianti Classico District.

There is a good equipment for cooking for a family. The two bedrooms with the king size beds are very comfortable. The room with the four beds for children is small but enough. The swimming pool was great and the children had much fun.

The owner was very polite and extremly helpful to turn good into exceptionell holiday. His recommendations for restaurants were very useful.

Vacances en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison dans un immense domaine. La villa est très bien située pour visiter la Toscane. Elle est à 7kms de la voie rapide (gratuite) entre Florence et Sienne. La villa est très bien équipée avec 3 grandes chambres et 3 salles de bain. Il y a un chemin qui permet de desservir la grande piscine à la vue magnifique autour. Enfin, Stefano le propriétaire, est très courtois, il répond très rapidement aux messages et en Français ! Merci à lui et à son très bon vin ;-)
