“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

We had a great time in Podere Campriano with Elena and her family. We felt at home and love the apt where we have two floors, with windows facing the lovely chianti valley and the vineyards. This is a small farmhouse and we could enjoy the swimming pool with a fantastic view all by ourselves. Very private, while enjoying the stay with the super friendly family. Compared to friends who stayed in other places in Chianti, this is definitely the best choice for people who do not rent a car. We can walk to the town conveniently in 10 minutes (5 of which is just to leave the farmhouse). But then, it is not easy to get there if you do have big suitcases, and we were lucky to get help from Elena's family who picked us up from the town by car. Breakfast was also excellent.

The only thing is there is no air conditioning, and if only there are mosquito repellent spray or other device to keep the mosquitoes out of the room.

we drove into Greve in Chianti, not knowing the direction to our B and B. We took a right turn to park an there.......was the gate. We knew something was up, something good. :) The location, a 5 minute walk down their hill to the centre of town, was wonderful. The view was something that we simply enjoyed each day many times, especially from the pool.

Elena was working the Chianti Wine Festival in town, so her mother Pia took care of us. The level of service was slightly less than what would have been otherwise, but we understood and it was still wonderful. Pia was attentive, be it questions about internet access or to help us find a nice bottle of their Chianti Classico by the pool. Rooms great, the Vale Suite we had was perfect for two younger boys and their happy parents. The pool on the hill was amazing.

The town was wonderful, the festival wonderful, the people wonderful.

We will be back in a couple of years and that is a certainty. Thank you Pia, Elena and everyone. Our three nights there was not enough. I hope you will have us again because we count on it.

Grazie tutti!

As other reviewers have said this is a great location being so close to Greve. If you are after a more country experience though perhaps try further out in the country although you are then a little more limited to not drinking if you venture out.
Clean, lovely rooms, as previous reviewer said no corkscrew, spoons, soap which I found a little odd? Only place on our month long trip where we struck this.

Nice hosts, you can do a tour of the small vineyard, I suggest you arrange in advance as it is family run so subject to their schedule.

Breakfast very good.

If you want a more private farmstay without too much interaction with hosts then this is for you, if you want to involved with family then this may not be for you as they tend to leave you alone.

Great views from up on the hill. Do go to Badia as previous reviewer said, absolutely beautiful valley and great wee wine bar 100m out of village.

We were so surprised to find this Tuscan vineyard and olive grove was so close to the town of Greve in Chianti. The gated entrance to the property is one street back from the town's main thoroughfare so we thought we had come to the wrong place until we drove up their entrance. The close location to town meant we never had to drive our car to go out for dinner so that was terrific. Elena serves a typical Italian breakfast every morning with beautiful home made jams. The room was comfortable enough - there was a lounge on the ground level and the bed was on a mezzanine floor. The bathroom was small like all bathrooms in Italy. The farmhouse decor has been given a subtle modern touch.

If our room had tea & coffee facilities, glasses and a corkscrew, a hair dryer, toiletries, an iron & ironing board, it would have been perfect. But alas, as a B&B, the accommodation was just a room & bathroom, nothing more. It was nice though and we would go back again but better prepared next time.

Their website is lovely but doesn’t do it justice. To be frank, all little towns in Tuscany are lovely and Greve is no different...but Podere Campriano is quite different. First, you're perched on a hill which affords a dazzling, panoramic view of Chianti. The common areas are tiered to offer postcard shots. From the pool and outdoor dining area one can see hills of olive groves, grape vines and stone villas and a sunset to match some of the best in summer. Accommodation is high quality...authentic stone villas offer Tuscan charm yet modern comfort. Foremost, you're a part of a family dynasty where they've been producing wine, olive oil and salami for 9 generations. Ps a) byo soap! b) don’t miss a visit to Badia di Passignano, a beautiful nearby town. The monastery (Osteria di Passignano) has a Michellen star restaurant - we did a tour and lunch which was exceptional - but there are two other small, quality cantinas in this tiny town, both with exceptional views.

Everyone, if you are looking for a place to base camp Chianti or Tuscan Hill towns, this is it. Elena and her family are so incredibly nice, the breakfasts are out of this world, and the location is as beautiful as it gets. My new husband and I stayed there the end of our honeymoon for 4 nights and we couldn't believe our luck for such reasonable prices. We will definitely come back!!

Our six days at this lovely Tuscan vineyard was the highlight of our Italian trip. The accommodations were comfortable, and the location was perfect for visiting Chianti. Our very friendly hostess and family made us feel comfortable from the start. Elena, an accomplished baker, provided either a "sweet" or "salad" breakfast each day. There is a lovely pool and a nice, restful garden in which to relax. I especially enjoyed the garden with beautiful flowers and rosemary hedge. There are nice tables for picnicking or just relaxing.
I understand that Elena can provide evening meals as well as dinner, but we were too much on the go to take advantage of that. Their organic wine is delightful. This agriturisimo provides the best of a wonderful region and tradition.
