The Chianti region is a wonderful place to live in, both summer and winter. It has a benign and mild microclimate with pleasant temperatures all year round and therefore allows for pleasurable tours even during low season, when the hamlets and main towns of Tuscany are less crowded. During the autumn, you can admire the warm colors in nature or the vivid green during the awakening of spring, when the towns are bustling with life. Besides the high summer season, spring and autumn are optimum times to visit this area. The Chianti region represents a true lifestyle, the culture of beauty and pleasure.
We suggest you visit all the small hamlets of the Chianti region at any time of the day, in particular during the evening when the sun sets. It is very pleasant to dine in the typical restaurants of the region (even outdoors if the weather allows so), where you can admire the colors of twilight that truly make this land so magic and special. Adults and children alike will be fascinated. Another aspect of this region worth mentioning is the traditional Italian cuisine; the area is full of typical restaurants, more or less exclusive, where you can enjoy a real steak “alla fiorentina” as well as various types of roast meat.

Experience quintessential Italy with a holiday home in Chianti
From a romantic holiday apartment on the cobbled streets of a medieval village, to a rustic rural holiday home surrounded by green meadows and centuries-old farmhouses, there are holiday rentals to suit every taste in beautiful Chianti. This region of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, is quintessentially Italian: lush rolling hills, dotted with vineyards, interrupted by picturesque stone villages that perch impossibly on hilltops. Above all, it is known for its traditional wineries, producing some of the world's best-loved red wines.
World-class wine and tasty tours
Wine tasting in Chianti is simple to organise and rewarding. Countless vineyards offering informative tastings are crammed into this comparatively small region, making it feasible to visit several in just one day from a holiday house based anywhere in Chianti. Rent a car and set out from your holiday apartment with absolute freedom to explore secluded farmhouses and out-of-the-way cellars throughout Barberino Val d'Elsa, unearthing exquisite wines and superb food, including Chianti's prized olives. Chianti's wine is hard to stop sipping, so those visitors that would prefer not to drive can take part in all-inclusive tours covering multiple wineries and leisurely lunches. Many of the region's vineyards are accessible by public transport from your holiday rental, including Castelo Vicchiomaggio, a winery surrounding an impressive medieval castle.
Holiday houses in hilltop towns: beautiful landscapes meet rich culture
Book a holiday rental in Chianti - in the heart of Italy - and feel history around every corner. Romantic old towns dot the landscape: Montefioralle, a few miles from Greve in Chianti, still has its fortified walls to keep out invading armies, while Giaole in Chianti is a rustic town with gorgeous old buildings and winding alleys - an idyllic visual counterpart to the rolling, sun-drenched hills that fade into the distance. For families with kids, the region also offers endless hiking and biking trails. Rent a holiday home in a romantic Tuscan town or a holiday house in the countryside, and Chianti's superb landscapes, wine and heritage will take care of the rest.
