    Overview

    In a lovely landscape

    This winery estate is situated in the Chianti region, one of the most beautiful stretches of land in central Tuscany - in the Val d'Elsa. Florence is only 30 km and Siena only 35 km away. Embedded in a green landscape, the view takes in the house's own vineyards and olive groves as well as fields lined by cypresses and forests. In one direction you see a Romanesque church dating back to the 10th century, in the other direction you have a view of the towers of medieval San Gimignano in the distance - providing the eye and mind with an all-round relaxing, peaceful backdrop.

    Podere Appiano is in operation as an azienda agricola and the farm cultivates more than 50 ha of the surrounding land. You can purchase the products of the fattoria (farm), including Chianti DOCG, Rosso IGT, Vinsanto, Grappa, Grappa Riserva and olive oil, on site.

    The farm's origins date back to the period around 1800. There are seven apartments altogether. The apartments are located in three different buildings, therefore guests enjoy a lot of space and privacy. All buildings have been fully renovated.

    The property captivates you with its unpretentious, modern elegance. Efforts have been taken to select a clear, more contemporary line of furnishings. Nonetheless, materials typical for the region were used during restoration: the clay bricks on the ceilings, the silver-grey Pietra-Serena stone of the fireplaces, the wood used for doors and windows as well as the heavy roof beams create a sense of warmth and cosiness.

    Each apartment is equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, a microwave/oven, coffee machine, a hair dryer and a safe. Several of them have a fireplace. All of them have outdoor seating arrangements with selected garden furniture for enjoying al fresco meals.

    Guests share the large swimming pool including a children's pool area, as well as the sun terrace and sun beds. In addition, there is a barbecue, a common laundry room with appliances for ironing, a small fitness room with several exercising machines and last but not least a small sauna for two - a rarity in Italy!

    On site it is possible to request breakfast (you may join in the breakfast buffet) and you can take cooking classes. At the reception, the friendly staff will strive to meet your wishes and can, for instance, make reservations for restaurants or arrange for a babysitter. Once a week there is a wine tasting, and the products of the farm (olive oil, grappa etc.) are presented.

     

    You can go shopping in Barberino Val d'Elsa, 3 km away. In the village of Barberino there are two bars, a butcher, the best pizzeria far and wide, a wine shop, a hairdresser, a pharmacy and a post office. There is a supermarket in Tavarnelle, 5 km away, where a weekly market takes place every Thursday morning in the piazza. A very large supermarket (with overwhelming delicatessen counter) can be found in Poggibonsi, a drive of about 10 minutes.

    The next restaurant with a panoramic garden terrace can be reached on foot - a nice walk of about 10-15 minutes. (If you prefer to walk, it might be a good idea to take along a flashlight as the path to the restaurant is not lit). In the surrounding area there is a variety of other small trattorias and specialty restaurants - every evening you could try a different restaurant in this region!

    Our Guests Reviews

    Wir waren in Prezzemolo, es war herrlich. Die Wohnung liegt nahe zum Pool und vor einer grossen Wiesenfläche. Die Besitzerin Irene war sehr freundlich, das Personal sehr hilfsbereit. Im Umkreis von 5 km gibt es viele ausgezeichnete Restaurants. Unser Favorit: La Fattoria hinter Tavarnelle. Eine Woche war viel zu kurz. Wir möchten bald wiederkommen.

    Great landscape

    Very kind service; well-kept rooms, pool and property; Good retaurants, but only by car; Trekking through the countryside could have more signposting, but it is great.

    Sehr geehrte Frau Röhrig,
    wir hatten einen traumhaften Urlaub. Die Anlage Podere Appiano ist super schön und gepflegt, die Zimmer sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, man fühlt sich auf Anhieb wohl. Das Anwesen ist zentral für Ausflüge gelegen und die Umgebung ist einfach zauberhaft. Frau Irene ist äußerst zuvorkommend und sehr hilfsbereit. Ein vollkommen gelungener Urlaub. Herzlichen Dank.
 Viele Grüße,

    We rented from you 2 years ago in the same area - Podere Appiano - does the Villa Olivo property have similar standards? We were very happy with our first choice and the owners were excellent hosts but feel we would like a change.

    K. Ross, January 2008

    Just to give you feed back that Podere Appiano was fantastic, excellent service and excellent hosts. We would have no problem recommending it 100% to any other visitors. Please forward our thanks to Irene.

    Liebe Frau Röhrig,
    
ich wollte Ihnen auf diesem Wege ein Feedback zu der oben genannten Anlage geben. Unsere Erwartungen wurden mehr als erfüllt und wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Appartments sind wunderschön und geschmackvoll, die Umgebung sehr hübsch. Fräulein Irene hat sich vor Ort rührend um uns gekümmert und einige nützliche Tipps und Vorschläge gemacht.
Vielen Dank für die Auswahl der Unterkünfte und die problemlose Abwicklung, wir werden gern wieder in die Toskana fahren und bei Ihnen buchen. Herzliche Grüße aus Hamburg,
    A. Drews, Oktober 2005

    Hallo Frau Röhrig,
    zurück aus der Toskana wollte ich Ihnen doch ganz kurz mitteilen, wie wunderschön ich die Anlage Podere Appiano finde und dass wir einen ganz tollen Urlaub hatten. Die Besitzer kümmern sich vor Ort so nett um ihre Gäste, dass man sich einfach nur wohl fühlen kann... Darüberhinaus habe ich die gesamte super-rasche Buchungsabwicklung über Ihre Agentur als sehr professionell empfunden. Auch hierfür ein dickes "danke schön"!

    Activities

    The villa is in the perfect location, just 35 minutes outside Florence. It overlooks a spectacular valley of vineyards, and the sunsets are amazing. In the morning, fog envelopes the valley floor, and the ancient towered city of San Gimignano rises on the opposite end of the valley, which you can see from the villa. A few minutes away is the small town of Barberino, which has a modern grocery store and other shops.

    The Chianti area: Famous for its wines - the Chianti Classico - this area of Tuscany has more than just world-class oenological pleasures to offer. The curious visitor will come accross many delightful villages, each of them with a history of its own. Let us simply mention lesser known gems such as the romanesque church of Sant'Appiano, the Basilica of Impruneta, the fortified castle of Monteriggioni and the roofless romanesque abbey of San Galgano which are all close. And don’t miss the Saturday market in the small town of Greve.

    San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers outside the town. The town also is known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area.

    Florence: The city lies on the Arno River and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages. It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. The historic centre of Florence continues to attract millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.

    Siena: The Sienese have no doubt, their town is the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, if not all of Italy. Siena has remained a Gothic city. Renaissance, one of the major influences in Florence, hardly affected the urban development of Siena. The city unfolds around the main shell-shaped square called "Il Campo." Twice a year the famous horse race known as the "Palio" takes place here. The narrow streets are lined with old shops and small cafes, while churches and museums are real treasures of the fourteenth century.

    Restaurants: eating out is a way of getting to know the area. Simple local trattorias rub their shoulders with more sophisticated restaurants specialised in refined cuisine. Fresh local produce allways plays the leading role. 

    Local craftsmanship: hand-made terracotta pots from Impruneta, hand painted pottery from Montelupo, mouth-blown crystal glass from the neighbouring village Colle Val d'Elsa, not to mention the south bank of the Arno river in Florence where you will find a multitude of craftsmen working silver, leather, wood, glass, paper and metal.
