A vacation to remember in the Chianti area between Florence and Siena - Granaio

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Villore’s apartments have all the comforts of a home away from home

Perched on a hilltop above fields of vineyards and forests of regal cypress trees stands an ancient farmhouse in Tuscan countryside dating to 1200 and built in the ochre stone so indicative of the Tuscan style. Here, in the very heart of the Chianti, the stress of everyday life recedes into mere memory, replaced by the gentle rush of olive branches swaying in the breeze and the heady perfume of wild flowers. Centrally located near the cities of Florence and Siena, Il Casale di Villore and its six newly renovated apartments invite you to live the Tuscan dream in this genteel country setting. Villore is as lovely outside as it is inside. Relaxing at poolside, guests can sip a cool drink while taking in the breathtaking view of the valley and the distant outline of charming medieval villages on the horizon.

Details for holiday apartment Granaio, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 1 Bathroom

Located in what was once Villore’s granary, apartment Granaio’s most outstanding feature is its beautifully furnished living room with fireplace, a large dining area, perfect for long evenings of entertaining with friends or family, and a dependence with a double bed. A kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and a children’s bedroom complete the accommodations.

Excellent - a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place! Rightfully deserving of so many positive reviews. The location is simply STUNNING. Even the professional photos of the infinity pool and grounds on the website do not do it justice. The view from the infinity pool at sunset is simply incredible. On a clear day, you can see the towers of San Gimignano.

We are a couple in in our late 20s. The other guests were generally families with young children. A nice mix and there was always plenty of space in the pool.

Antonio and his family are extremely welcoming, and recommended some great places to eat. It takes around 30-45 mins to get to the centre of both Sienna and Florence.

We stayed in Cardisco appartment, which has two large doubles (even the americans will be happy with the size of the rooms) and views across the hills.

We will be back!

A glorious place to stay in the heart of Chianti

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Villore was wonderful- what a beautiful place. Staff were helpful and friendly but at the same time discreet and so although there were other people there it felt very private. The pool is stunning, surrounded by olive trees and a view of San Gimignano in the distance- it couldn't have been better. Our apartment was well-equipped, rustic not luxury, but in keeping with the whole feel if the place. It is just a short drive into Poggibonsi where you can easily get to Siena or Florence for the day, and in the other direction Castellina is a gem. There is a fabulous restaurant on the way to Castellina as well. We would definitely come here again. Hopefully sooner rather than later!

Lovely home in Perfect Chianti Location

  • 5 of 5

Il Casale Villore could not have been more perfect. As you first drive up towards the property you just know it's going to be amazing. And it was! The property with the cypress and olive trees and gorgeous huge potted lemon trees accenting a most gorgeous home couldn't have set the scene any better for the view we were about to enjoy. We stayed in the Granaio and it was perfect, even larger than I had expected. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was super clean and in perfect working order. We really didn't need anything else. Back to the property - this deserves more mention, the infinity pool facing a trill magnificent quintessential Tuscan view, multiple seating areas and patios. All amazing. We always felt like we had the whole property to ourselves even though we knew the other apartments were occupied. Wish we had had more time to enjoy this. Perhaps next time. The location and proximity to the best of Chianti and beyond is as good as it gets. Lastly the owner, Antonio was fantastic. He was always prompt in responding to my questions prior to our arrival and available to us at all times.

A few highlights all within 30 minutes drive: Siena, Greve, the new Antinori vineyard, Montefioralle (where time has stood still) and restaurant La Cassale there.

It was a perfect vacation to remember and I would recommend to anyone!

Fabulous property in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Casale di Villore! The property far exceeded our expectations for so many reasons. It was well maintained and very clean. The owner Antonio was so helpful and always available for assistance - he made great suggestions regarding towns and vineyards to visit, booked reservations and local restaurants; and provided us little extras (e.g., wine upon check in, bug spray, electronic adaptors) that made the stay that much more enjoyable. The location was very central, therefore it was easy to visit all regions of Tuscany by car. We highly recommend this place, and have already booked our next stay there in 2017! Thanks Antonio for your great hospitality.

Wonderful Place and Great Service

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and found it to be the perfect base from which to enjoy an amazing Italian vacation. Upon arrival we were struck by the beauty of the property and surrounding vistas. The grounds are gorgeous, the accommodations beautiful, and Antonio's hospitality was exceptional. Our trip included our 15 month old son, and Antonio was able to provide a crib and high chair for him, which made things even easier. Additionally, our accommodations included a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of space, so we had everything we needed at our finger tips.

We used Casale di Villore as a base and then took day trips to surrounding points of interest. Using our rental car to get around, we toured Florence, Pisa, Chianti and Tuscany. Of all the wonderful places we saw, our favorite day was visiting small historic towns near Casale di Villore. Antonio provided recommendations for the best places to visit, great dining spots, and wineries, which made everything very easy.

I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful getaway!
