Roberta and her daughter Rebecca were wonderful hosts! They provided my husband and I with a great map specifically of the Chianti region which was great for navigating the scenic smaller roads and made recommendations for nearby towns to visit.
The apartment was as we expected from the photos, if not better. The bed was oriented differently than in the photos and did not have the mosquito netting, but the new layout allowed you face the window when waking up. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The views are spectacular! So picturesque. We enjoyed reclining in the private garden and cooking in the kitchen.
There are no shops in Tignano, so we recommend you stop at a market or supermarket (there is a small one in Barberino nearby) on your drive for food and drinks for your stay. A car is a must for staying here. There is a large parking lot below the castle where you can park. We took the scenic drive (not the autostrada) from the apartment to both Siena and Florence and it was between 1 hr - 1.5 hrs to either city. We recommend visiting Barberino (next town over) for the wine tasting at La Spinosa and dinner at Ristorante Cortefreda. We enjoyed the apartment itself as it was homey and relaxing, and it's location was great as our home base for visiting Siena, Florence, and exploring Chianti towns.
Conocimos a Rebeca, hija de Roberta, apenas llegamos. Muy amable nos indico donde podiamos comer, q lugares conocer y como manejarnos. El lugar es impresionante!!! Me tenia que pellizcar para darme cuenta que no estaba soñando.. realmente un sueño. El departamento igual. Era mas de lo que habia visto en las fotos. Volveria, volveria!!! Graciasssss Roberta y Rebeca por compartir ese lugar maravilloso!!
Je confirme à Roberta et Rebecca que nous avons passé une semaine délicieuse.
L'accueil est très chaleureux et le voisinage très sympathique.
Nous avons quitté la location et la région à regret.
The location is perfect and the views are amazing. Although the house is a bit dark it's a very special place to be. Roberta and Rebecca are great and helpful people. If we could recommend a few things we would recommend leaving one bottle of water in the fridge for people arriving (which could be in the evening or after a long trip) and a nice touch (that we had at every house we have been to with AirBnB) is to leave a tray with some jam, butter, fresh and bread or so for the guests arriving. It is a small touch that makes experiences at AirBnB very special every time and differentiates it from normal rental houses. But we had a great time and amazed by the views every day. Thank you, Roberta and Rebecca!
As soon as we arrived at Tignano's Castle...we thought we had arrived in some sort of fairy tale! The view is breathtaking. Roberta had agreed to us arriving just a bit earlier which was much appreciated. Her daughter Rebecca was there to greet us and show us around. The apartment was delightful...and did I mention the views??!! There was great wifi, all equipment needed, including a washing machine, iron etc. Rebecca was on hand to answer any queries as they live in the same complex.
Tignano was so relaxed and peaceful...a perfect haven from our busy travels so far but close enough to Firenze for a day trip. We had parking for our car and absolutely no hassles! So very beautiful that we would go there again in a moment's notice. Thank you Roberta and Rebecca...we absolutely loved our stay and you made us feel right at home.
The appartement is located in a wonderfull place in the Heart of Chianti, offering a superb view on the landscapes surrounding the house.
We didn't meet Roberta but her daughter, who was really kind.
Also, they provide lot of détails on What to see , where to eat... Which were really usefull to discover Nice places.
So if you are looking for a peacefull place in the nature do not hesitate !
