A good friend of mine had mentioned and recommended this area (Chianti, Greve in Chianti, Panzano in Chianti) as being a "magic place." After spending 5 days in Panzano and enjoying the breathtaking views of the surroundings, I would say that's an understatement. There are hundreds of bed of breakfast in the area, so how do you choose what you're looking for? Here's what we were looking for: an authentic place ran by authentic people (I don't like to feel like a tourist and everyone in Panzano and especially Guilietta made me feel like a special guest, and at times like a friend). Fagiolari is beautiful, comfortable (some people would call it rustic--this is not a 5 star palace, but you should know that when you're looking for the amazing value of a B&B), quiet and located in the best (in my opinion) area right between Florence (which has become way too touristic for my taste but is still wonderful), and Sienna that has managed to maintain its charm in spite of the popularity it has developed (and the accompanying crowds).
Do yourself a favor, if you're looking for the perfect Tuscan experience, look no further, you found it. Make sure you take day trips to Florence and Sienna as needed, visit the shops and go the markets in Panzano and Greve and if you can take the cooking class with Guilietta, it's really a must and a lot of fun (again, authentic is what comes to mind). Check out the pictures posted, they reflect exactly the atmosphere and vistas.
