Have just returned from two weeks at Vignale. Everything was equally as good as my previous review, nothing having deteriorated or got scruffy during the year, and we thought the road up to the hamlet was actually in better shape than last year.
This year we appreciated even more how central this location is for exploring Tuscany. We caught the train from Montevarchi to Florence, which was very easy. There are some beautiful, ancient hilltop villages in the surrounding areas all serving delicious homemade meals at very reasonable prices or you can go bang up to date (well last season's anyway) at the designer outlets.
Going back again next year as my two early teenaged daughters wouldn't let me book anywhere else!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vignale is a small hamlet found on top of a Chianti hill that gives it the luxury of a stunning view all around. Within a short drive there are three of the five famous Chianti towns: Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. Vignale was lovingly restored in 2002, creating an ancient hamlet with luxury accommodations that have every modern convenience. The large pool sits on the crest of the hill overlooking the vineyards in the valley below. ... more less
