Lucolena, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany
Le Refie(#187339) is located in the heart of Chianti. It is set in a charming landscape of chestnut trees and vineyards. The Refie farmhouse and woodland belongs still nowadays to Count Capponi owner of Villa Calcinaia estate (18 kms ) and former owner of Villa Carbonaia (300 meters far from the Refie farmhouse). Thanks to the altitude and forest land a very precious chestnut honey is produced in the estate . The nearest food-store from Refie apartment is in Lucolena Village(4,4km). It is a small shop that sells the essential staff. In Greve village(16,1kms, or 13 km via dirt road) one can find all sort of shops, restaurants , pharmacy ,banks and a supermarket that is open everyday from 8.30 am to 1pm and from 4.00 to 7.30 pm. The supermarket is closed on Sunday. In the main square of Greve village there are some food-store open on Sund... Read more

We had a wonderful stay at Le Refie. The farmhouse was very comfortable. Surrounded by the vineyard, Apple and pear trees. It was great being able to BBQ dinners and sit in the dining room with a nice fire going.
The location was great for visiting several towns, villages and hamlets where the vineyards, restaurants and castles were spectacular.
Driving on the dirt road to Greve was an adventure. We spotted a wild boar and deer on separate occasions.
A couple of other highlights were visiting Villa Calcinaia and having Chef Beata prepare a meal at Le Refie for 6 of us. It was a wonderful experience that I would like to repeat in the near future!

Our stay at Le Refie last month was the most fantastic expierience we could have asked for. It was the most perfect home base for out trip to Tuscany. From the mountain top views, the vineyards out back, incredible spring water, and impecable accomodations our party of six could not have asked for a better place to stay. No ice thru the fridge door, no 4G network, not even 300 TV channels to choose from. Just the solace we all needed to clear our minds and get back to the real things the matter to all of us. Le Refie in located in the heart of Tuscany and I mean the HEART. Great restaurants are a stones throw away, but our Chef prepared the most fantastic dinner for us on the last night of our stay at Le Refie. The family owed property could not be managed better, the cleanliness of the 100 year old farmhouse was impecable. My heartfelt thanks the the staff and the Capponi family especially for providing us all with the most unforgettable expierience we've all had while...
