The Experience

You’re greeted by smiley staff and a welcome brochure filled with things to do – it’s updated weekly so you won’t miss a local fiesta or foodie market. Here you can walk through the vineyards and olive groves, take a tour of the cellar and taste wine in the cantina.

11 apartments are spread out over two flower-framed farmhouses set on gentle slopes. The ancient Tuscan buildings have been carefully restored: each apartment is generous in size and nicely private with its own entrance and terrace; some have open fires, bathrooms are cleverly tucked in.

It’s four kilometres to San Donato for supplies but you can opt for a breakfast or ‘heat-your-own’ dinner basket if you prefer. It’s fun, too, to sign up for a weekly communal supper if you stay in the main holiday season. Sneak out for a midnight stargaze – the Chianti Observatory is ten-minutes down the road.

Location

The neighbourhood

Drive to pretty San Donato in Poggio – the nearest hamlet where there are shops, restaurants and an interesting Gothic church. Just outside the village is the Chianti observatory for guided night-time stargazing and the botanical gardens. There are some easy walking trails from your door and lots of other wine producers nearby if you want a different tour.

Local points of interest from Anna Gambaro

  • Start your Food & Wine holiday here! In the Chianti area you will find many restaurants where to savour the typical Tuscan cuisine, even the most up-to-date version. And of course, everything will be accompanied by our local wine.
  • The crowded yet ever breath-taking San Gimignano is always worth a visit. It is only a 30-minute drive away, surrounded by medieval walls and watched over by the medieval towers.
  • Florence’s Mercato Centrale is a must for lovers of Italian cuisine! The young and bubbly mood and its vibrant events all year long offer unlimited options to visitors.

Introducing

Anna Gambaro

The Gambaro’s have farmed here for three generations and still live on site. Between Anna Gambaro and manager Barbara they speak five languages so you’re well understood and during the day there’s always someone in the reception area. They’re keen that guests get the chance to participate in the grape and olive harvests (in season) and can offer art lessons (Anna’s husband teaches art history in Florence) and yoga and meditation workshops.
