This lovely apartment in the centre of Greve is a great base for a visit to the Chianti region. The pictures do not do it justice - the apartment is immaculately clean, perfect for a couple . I cannot emphasise enough its location- it is literally two minutes walk from the central piazza in Greve, and yet is so peaceful overnight - you will however be awakened by the church bells around 7 amish - but it is amusing!!
The apartment has a lovely outside space - the garden is so well tended and overlooks the river flowing through Greve - if you are into wildlife you will be well entertained - especially by the family of watervoles that live on the bank directly opposite the apartment.
Simone the owner is just so helpful - speaks a little English and we only speak a few words of Italian but we had a perfect understanding -he is a real gentleman.
Two tips - contact Simone before your arrival in Greve - he owns a shop in the centre of town on the main road into town - he will agree a time with you to meet you at the shop - we followed him in our car to the apartment.
Second thing - if you are bothered that the apartment does not have a washing machine don't be - there is an excellent laundrette about one minute walk away - open all hours - so you can put your clothes in - pop back to the apartment for a nice glass of Chianti until they are ready to pick up.
Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did.

The apartment was just perfect , clean with everything we needed, we were able to walk anywhere in Greve from this location. Quiet, really nice furnishings, lots of light right along a river/ brook bank where we watched birds and ducks every morning. Although the owner didn't speak much english, we were able to communicate. He showed us around town upon arrival and helped us with a motorcycle rental.
