Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and oak woods but at the same time only a few minutes distance from the historical township of Castellina in Chianti., the farmhouse is itself situated on the antique stone terraces which for centuries have surrounded the town and on which grow our olive trees.

It is almost entirely in bioedilizia respecting the original characteristics and structure of the buildings.

10/10....Wow. Lovely property in a lovely (central, charming) area, with a lovely host. Even the massive thunder and lighting storm on the first night was a memorable and epic way to start our stay. Not a single issue and wouldn't hesitate to stay in our upstairs suite again.

Linda was a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend the accommodation. The room was clean, comfortable and in a very scenic location. It's maybe a 15min walk to town and a great spot for day trips to the surrounding area (with a car).

We really enjoyed our stay in Chastellina. Lindas apartment was the perfect choice. A lovely, quiet place with character and charm. The hosts were very friendly, organized and excellent local guides. Can recommend it for people looking for a classic Chianti experience in a relaxed environment.

Response from Linda:
We much enjoyed having Florian and his girlfriend here with us. Interesting and happy to explore our marvelous region. We would be more than happy to recommend them both to future hosts and hope perhaps to have them back to stay with us sometime in the future. Best of luck to you both.

We had a wonderful stay at Linda's Lavander apartment in Castellina in Chianti. Linda was very helpful with directions to the property and responsive to any questions we had. Linda was also extremely welcoming and made us feel at home. The apartment itself was just like the pictures and had a beautiful outlook over the Tuscan countryside. The pool was amazing, we used it almost every day in the 30+ degree heat! The location was also fantastic. You will need a car but its easy to get to anywhere in the Chianti region and also Siena and Florence.

Perfect quiet & homely place to discover the Chianti region! Beautiful views across the vineyards, superbly outfitted apartment and kitchen, great pool (although we haven't used it), and above all a lovely host. Thank you Linda!

What a place! We stayed in the Rosmarino apartment, which is one of the smaller ones and the one that has a patio towards the setting sun. The facilities are modern and it is evident that Linda & co have a good eye for details. The apartment: The apartment itself has a genuinely rustique decor with dark wooden details, terracotta flooring and a very homely feel about it. It is a very comfortable place to stay. The bathroom feels brand new and the utilities are of very high quality with a comfortable toilet, a bidet and a shower with proper water output. The towels are thick and of the best quality. Everything is very clean. The outdoor areas: Just wow. The Rosmarino apartment has a private patio with a table and a couple chairs. There is a spectacular view of the rolling hills of Chianti from the patio and we spent every night there sipping Chianti Classico while admiring the sunset. The patio connects directly to the main house's very well kept and large garden with its perfect lawn. The pool: The pool and area around it feels - and is - very luxurious. The pool, sunbeds and pool furniture are of the highest quality and you can tell the tile layers knew what they were doing. Everything is just perfectly built, kept and maintained. The pool has two types of powered water massage and its size is big enough that you can go for a swimming workout. The pool is elevated somewhat from the rest of the property and gives even better views of the Chianti landscape. We missed out on a few planned excursions because we would rather stay by the pool. The hostess: Linda is a very kind and helpful person. She freely offered local wine tips and suggested places to go. We also got a nice tour of the most interesting areas of the main house since we expressed interest in old Chianti farmhouses and their architecture. She even kindly gave us fresh produce from their gardens. Very delicious! The negatives: I have to somewhat force these negatives out to make the review as helpful as I can, because in my view they did not subtract from the excellent experience at all. I am still giving this five stars. But here goes: - You live very close to Linda and her family. The patio in the Rosmarino apartment is only separated from their patio by some dense plants. (It still felt very quiet and we were not bothered by their presence at all. Quite the opposite) - The approach by car is a very steep gravel road with some fairly deep trenches carved by rain water. It is fine with a normal car if you drive carefully, but if you have a Ferrari or an uncommonly strict rental car contract, I would not drive all the way down. - Pool closes at 20.00. (Understandable, but we loved it so much there) Rating: 5/5

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.

The farmhouse originates in the 12th Century and has been restored using bioedilizia to maintain the original architecture. 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.
Happy holidays!
