  • We came here because of the positive comments and found it even better! The village is calm ad beautiful, the countryside as well. The rooms are so charming and comfortable, we stayed for three nights and had a fire in the fireplace. A&P are perfect hosts, so nice and interesting. They share their kitchen. One evening we had dinner and a chat together, really nice and friendly! It was the best experience of our vacation.

  • On our way to this absolutely charming place, we saw the most gorgeous sunset over the vineyards. We drove the back way and got to see the adorable little town looking down on it from the road above and it was breathtaking! Couldn't wait to see which of those adorable stone places was ours to enjoy! Then we started thinking we should stay for 2 nights, not just one! Our hosts were wonderful and met us at the door. Medieval dual staircase up to the arched big wooden doors, inside it's so full of medieval charm you've just got to see for yourself. From the foyer to the kitchen to our quarters, coziness and charm was everywhere you looked. We couldn't believe we had our own dining/living room, hall, bathroom and bedroom, our very own apartment as if we lived in a castle! No doubt you should stay here for more than one night! The cats are very friendly too! Wonderful place, wonderful hosts. Adorable town where you can see the wine making process from farm to table. A wonderful experience. Even cute little restaurants that are local grown, handmade. Do not miss this place!

  • Alessandra and Palmro were really kind with us. Their house in Volpaia is in the center of the village which is extraordinary. Volpaia is worth a stay, and we definitely recommend their house (in the former Castle of Volpaia) if you seek an experience in the core of a small village

  • Palazzo Braccini est vraiment un endroit fantastique dans un cadre exceptionnel, perché sur les montagnes du Chianti d'où la vue est imprenable! Nous avons été accueillis par des hôtes, Alessandra et Palmiro, charmants et très serviables, sans être envahissants, sympathiques et intéressants, qui nous ont fourni plein d'informations sur la région, les balades à faire, etc. L'appartement que nous avions est décoré avec goût, avec de beaux meubles anciens, il est très calme et très intime et surtout, très propre. Nous sommes vraiment ravis d'y avoir séjourné et un peu déçus de ne pas y être restés plus longtemps... Bref, c'est l'endroit où il faut aller!
