I live with my husband and family in Chianti, a beautiful part of the world. I am originally from New Zealand but have lived in Tuscany for many years.
Our property, is only a short walk from the center of Castellina in Chianti, a charming medieval town where one can find restaurants, pizzerias, cafès and bars plus shops and galleries.

We have apartments to rent that are completely self contained to meet all your requirements for a great holiday while maintaining the original Tuscan charm with Terracotta floors, wooden beams and Tuscan furnishings.
The land and gardens offer wide views over the Elsa valley and while swimming and relaxing in the pool one can admire the beautiful panorama. There are walks and excursions available and only short distances away famous vineyards that produce reknowned wines and products that one can taste.
