Description An holiday at Pietreto is a memorable experience: an old farm (45ha)located on a hill top, about 485m above sea level, in the heart of Chianti, only 27km from Florence and 30 km from Siena.
Pietreto consists of a beautiful barn and a an elegant villa (where the owner lives)both built in stone in 1765 on the ruins of an old Spedale dei Pellegrini (Pilgrimís hostel) which was a meeting- point for travellers and farmlabourers.
The old barn dating from the 18th century has been recently restored and confortably furnished. It consists of two apartments with independent entrances and parking spaces, independent heating and satellite television.
Both apartments are surrounded by splendid private gardens from which you can enjoy a striking view over the hills and valleys of Chianti.
A barbecue is available to guests.
The barn has been restored respecting the original style. The interior furnishings are a combination of antiques and Tuscan rural pieces.
The style of these two cozy apartmens is extremely welcoming but at the same time refined, with great attention to detail. It integrates well with the landscape, producing a charming effect for our guests: stone walls, exposed wooden beams, floors in hand-made terracotta tiles, wrought iron beds, antiques, all in the best Tuscan tradition.
Each apartment, with independent entrance and parking space, is also equipped with outdoor furniture.
Pietreto farm is located between the medieval village of San Donato (3km) and Castellina (6km), of Etruscan and Roman origins, in the Chianti Classico area, right in the heart of Tuscany. The farm is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, orchards and woods.
The quiet location and broad views of the countryside are the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. This is also an ideal location for visiting famous art cities such as Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Giminiano, Pisa, Volterra, as well as the nearby villages of the famous Chianti Classico area: Greve, Barberino Val díElsa, Radda, Gaiole, Tavarnelle, San Casciano with their churches and abbeys, castles and fortresses, farmhouses and villas.
