We stayed two nights at this lovely agriturismo 2.5 km from Greve in Chianti. For those without a car, it is accessible by bus from Florence if you are prepared for a short walk on a narrow highway and then an uphill walk through quieter roads; exit the SITA bus at Tirassegno. Groceries can be purchased at the supermarket in Greve.
We stayed in a small apartment on the second floor of one of the buildings; the kitchen was adequately equipped for 2 people and is fine for preparing simple meals. A shared firepit/BBQ was also on site. Our rate included a generous breakfast buffet or cereals, pastries, yogurt, juice and boiled eggs.
We liked the extremely firm bed but it may be too hard for some. The standard of cleanliness was high. Windows are screened and an electric fan is provided. The only downside to the apartment is that the windows were at knee-level of the adjoining balcony; in our case, the room with the balcony was not occupied, but if it had been we would have had no privacy and noise might have been an issue.
There was a very nice (cold!) pool that was furnished with numerous lounge chairs and shade umbrellas. Although there was a children's pool, families with children used the main pool, making it a little more crowded and noisy that we would have liked.
Views from the breakfast room and a communal outdoor patio were goreous. Service was efficient and friendly. Wines and honey produced on site were available for purchase. A library of books and magazine was available.
We had hoped to do some hiking in the area, but the roads were very dusty and the heat made the uphill climbs too much of a challenge. We think that walking in this area would be lovely in cooler weather, however.
We recommend this agriturismo for a relaxing, no-frills holiday in a pleasant area of tuscany.
