Angelica & Paolo have made my trip much more enjoyable! They are super friendly and helpful. We don't drive, but Paolo helped us to check the bus timetable and gave me very good suggestions on where to visit and what to eat in my short stay there. They also reminded us about the commencement of winter time, which was very important to us because we needed to catch not-so-frequently-operated buses on Sunday. Breakfast was a buffet with lots of different choices, warmly prepared by Angelica. She even baked tasty pastries for guests! Room, comfortable. Internet connection, great. It's even available in the terrace. The garden is beautiful and nicely decorated. With their friendly doggy, tranquility and the nature landscape, I really wish I could stay there for longer time. :)
P.S. It's easy to get there by bus, which is a plus for us who don't drive!
We stayed here on our honeymoon and we loved this B&B. It's centrally located to all the attractions in the Tuscany region and only a 45 minute drive from Florence. We had dinner reservations in Florence and the drive home afterwards was not bad at all. Our room had a modest view, but the shower in the bathroom was fantastic and the breakfast spread was phenomenal. Paolo offered friendly advice on where to park in Florence for a wine tour...I'm sure he would have had more advice for us had we asked, but we're adventurers and set out to discover Tuscan gems on our own.
My only words of improvement would extend to most hotels/b&bs in Italy (except, of course, the REALLY upscale hotels) and that is in reference to the beds...hard, foamy, comfortable at first but then your back complains in the morning. I don't know who has the monopoly on mattresses in Italy, but they should recompense stiff travelers with a massage...
This was our first Air BnB experience. And, honestly, it could not have been dreamier! Paolo and Angelica were friendly, resourceful, and very warm overall. I'd recommend this little nook not just because the hosts are fabulous & down-to-earth, but the house itself was beyond impressive, clean, well-kept, and you just can't beat the views we had of Chianti. It was one of the most memorable legs of our trip.
A lovely and peaceful experience. Thanks to the kind hosts!
Great Spot. Very nice architecture and a setting that is hard to beat. Very nice hosts who pay attention to detail. This place would be 2.5 million euros to purchase, what a cool spot to hang out. We wanted to stay extra days but they were full and tried to get us in one down the road but it was full too. Wi-fi didn't work in our room on Ipad or cell but went to the common area and got it fine. The bed/linens were nice. Bathroom was clean and in pristine condition.

We had a lovely stay here, the accommodation was perfect, we really enjoyed the breakfasts and swimming pool. Angelica & Paolo where very accommodating. :-)
Angelica & Paolo do offer a very nice & beautiful experience in the middle of the vineyards of tuscany. The Casello is beautifully decorated and has a stunning view! Just 50meters away you can have a perfect wine tasting experience and very good dinner! We will definitely come back!
This is a great B&B, rooms are very nice, clean and well equipped. we even had tea and a mini bar in the room. The B&B is gorgeous and located in a great quiet spot. The building is on old style building that has been very nicely renovated. Angelica and Paolo are very nice people at make you feel like you are at home.
This b&b is really perfect : great location, really nice hosts, beautiful room, very clean and quiet, near to Greve and Panzano. The "piscina" is simply amazing, and the terrace is perfect, especially for the sunset ! If we come back to Chianti, we'll definitely go here !! Thanks a lot to Angelica and Paolo !
