Greve in Chianti, Tuscany
We offer a very simple, low cost room to rent in our family house as we want everybody to have the possibility of enjoying this lovely corner of Chianti.

Our guests can relax outside in the gardens or up in the olive groves, listen to the birdsong, immerse themselves in the gorgeous Chianti countryside and gaze up at the stars at night.

The accommodation has its own entrance, separate from the rest of the house, opening onto a lovely terrace that looks out over the garden. The room itself is clean and cosy (that is 'mignon'!) with a large bed, an area for hanging clothes, a chest of drawers and a chair. There is a fridge, electric kettle, french coffee press and plates, cutlery and glasses are provided.

We do not prepare breakfast for our guests as we are out at work, but we provide tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, cereal an...

But when you get there you'll experience idyllic atmosphere. The house is in the middle of vineyard. Really cosy room is beautifully decorated by Julia, the owner. On a private terrace you can...

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at Julia and Giovanni's house. The room and bathroom were very comfortable and very clean and it was a perfect base to explore Tuscany.

A double bedroom and bathroom, with our own private terrace overlooking the hills and valleys. Just wonderful. Julia and Giovanni were great hosts and we were sad to have to leave...
