Casale Sobole

Greve in Chianti, Florence

Three apartments with a swimming pool in an authentic part of Tuscany; visit vineyards and local markets, drive to Florence in an hour


3 places


Sleeping from 6 – 8


This large stone house was originally built to store machinery and grains and stands alone on a hill overlooking vineyards and olive groves. The three apartments all have their own private entrances, ample living space with inviting sofas and fireplaces, and kitchens that spill out onto gardens with shady eating areas and barbecues.

Tommaso drives over from Florence to greet you with a couple of bottles of wine and breakfast basics; you’re invited to help yourself to the veg garden and pick fruit from the trees that surround the property. Ask about having meals cooked for you by locals and trips to cheese factories, vineyards and weekend markets.

It feels rural here but you can drive to the lively town of Greve in ten minutes or to Florence in an hour. Hire e-bikes to explore the countryside, go wine-tasting, return to relax by the swimming pool.

I especially loved the owners' choice to leave the interior spaces as they were originally. Going up and down, in and out of the various rooms makes living in this stunning Casale all that much more delightful. I kept wanting to know what each room was used for in days gone by. And it follows that the views from each window are all unique. Bravi!

The neighbourhood

Casale Sobole is at the beginning of the Chianti Classico region, which starts from Greve and continues to Siena. Food and wine are the main attractions here. Impruneta, world-famous for hand-made terracotta vases and statues, is 20 minutes by car on the way to Florence. You can walk to Greve in 40 minutes along country footpaths, or drive in 15 minutes. Ask Tommaso about the various itineraries he’s put together: wine-tasting and lunch at the futuristic Antinori wine cellar, tours of cheese factories, visits to the Saturday and Sunday markets in Greve and Panzano.


Tommaso Albini

The owners live in Bergamo so their son Tommaso, who is very welcoming and friendly, shows guests around. The family bought the completely ruined Casale in 2000 and restored it with the intention of selling it, but the longer they had it the more they fell in love with it and the local people. They feel at home in this part of Tuscany and want to share their experience with others.
