The space

The villa (sleeps 6 plus max 2 children) is in a very quiet area, but only five minutes by car from the charming village of Castellina in Chianti, one of the most famous villages of the region "Chianti Classico (Gallo Nero)", between Siena and Florence. The wonderful swimmingpool and private pinewood make it a unique relaxing place. With fireplace, antique fourniture and modern appliances, with its wifi inside and outside, the villa is very comfortable and with a special Tuscan taste. The large eternity pool that overlooks the valley with woods vineyards and olivegroves offers complete fusion with nature. A real landscape therapy.

Guest access

The villa is placed in the middle of 4,5 hectars of private land that allows to go for walks in the woods and in the olive groves, to the local creek for birdwatching. Wildboar, deers, hares and pheasans are typical wild that can be seen sometimes in the distance. From June to September large private eternity pool (16 m x 6 m), with salt, no chlorine, is open and will be shared only with the owners and the guests of the cottage which is the only house at walking distance. An external room with laundry facilities will be available.

The owner live in Siena (20 min. by car from the villa) but they use to spend the weekends in the cottage near it (300 m. far along the access road). They speak Italian, English, German and French and will be available also by telephone for any need. They will welcome the guests and show all appliances and will be there when guests leave. In case of need there is also a caretaker who lives 5 min. by car from the cottage.

Other things to note

This region is an oasis with various treasures: wonderful views of untouched natural beauties, preserved traditions that you can taste in the form of marvelous recipes and basic organic local products, like wine, olive oil, boar, and a variety of local vegetables. Art is everywhere: Etruscan ruins, medieval churches and Renassaince castles. Jewels of culture, history and architecture, like Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and Florence, are only 20-30 minutes by car. If you like wine tasting, you can visit the most renowned wine producers of the region. If you like horse riding, you can find plenty of opportunities in the surrounding. Every single restaurant is an experience for your senses. If you wish to visit other parts of Italy, the cottage is also a perfect starting point: 2 hours to the Tuscan Coast and the islands (Elba, Giglio, etc,), 3 hours to Rome, 2 hours to Assisi, 4 hours to Cinque Terre or Venice.

The property was beautiful and the location was central (30-45 minute drive) to many sights in Tuscany from wine tasting to Siena and Florence. Pierangela was very responsive and accommodating.

Pierangela and her husband were fantastic hosts. The villa was all that it was advertised in the posting and description. Pierangela also helped us with our trip in regards to wineries, farmers markets, side-trips to other cities, cooking schools, and what to see and do. She has a fantastic binder as a resource loaded with all kinds of information and what to do. The villa is located between vineyards and olive groves and is located close to the little town of Castellina in Chianti. We highly recommend anyone looking to stay in Tuscany and use the villa as their base of operation. We stayed two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our Tuscan visit and the comfort of the villa.

Pierangela was a very accommodating host with a beautiful ancient property. We thoroughly enjoyed its character and centralized location in Tuscany. San Bartolomeo is a wonderful place to stay if you want to see all the great cities of Tuscany.

Authentic atmosphere combined with modern comfort. Excellent location with access to all of Chianti + +. Outdoor area is a dream with the large and very clean pool. Colourful flowers and versatile herbs complete the decor. Peaceful and exotic in the most pittoresque Tuscan landscape. When returning to Tuscany in the future, I'm planning on booking my stay at San Bartolomeo. If you you seek the typical Tuscan, where rustic features blends perfectly with comfort - choose this beautiful place in the hills below Castellina in Chianti!

Pierangela was an amazing host who made sure our vacation is Tuscany was unforgettable. Her home overlooking the rollung hills of her vineyard and olive trees is spectacular. The eternity pool was very refreshing after spending the day visiting and exploring all the wonderful cities all within 30 minutes of Pierangela home. I would definitely come back again and highly recommend this home to everyone.
