Castello di Volognano and its attractive village lie in the Chianti hills just 15 kms from Florence, in a very panoramic position with a 360 degree view of the olive groves and vineyards that are part of the extensive property. In the past the castle has hosted such distinguished people as Giacchino Rossini, Giosuè Carducci and Enrico Fermi. It has undergone a detailed restoration and offers a wonderful atmosphere of times gone by, and is furnished with antique pieces perfectly in harmony with the style of the castello. The outside areas, which are very well looked after, include an italianate garden and a swimming-pool which has the unique feature of being build partly inside the old lemon-house and partly outside. The property is very well equipped and has washing-machine, dishwasher, broadband internet connection, satellite-TV, telephone. Next to the castle is a small village which is partly inhabited, and the large wine-cellars where they produce the wines from the farm and extra-virgin olive oil. They can organize special tastings in a large and attractive room. The nearest town is Pontassieve which is about 2.5 kms away, and other small villages can be reached in just a few minutes by car.

Very clean and a nice space. Easy drive to the plaza. Overall, a very convenient place to stay in Sonoma.
We had a few issues with the woman overseeing the apartment from slow response time to claiming we paid partially and now owe additional funds. All eventually got sorted out and we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is beautiful and well located. It's a shame we felt uncomfortable with how we were treated.
We loved staying at Mark & Bonnie's place in Sonoma. Everything was great and perfectly located for our needs. Fall in Sonoma is beautiful in it's own right, but this quiet getaway allowed us to enjoy it even more.
My husband and I stayed at Lomita for our one year anniversary and had a fabulous time!
Great location as a home base for wine country excursions. Near the Historic Sonoma Town Square by way of the town's paved walking path - perfect spot to enjoy good restaurants, scenic hiking, local wineries and cycling. Just a few miles from the Russian River so kayaking is an easy option as well. Gateway to the Sonoma Valley, short drive up to the Alexander Valley, Napa Valley and Carneros Wine Region. Your own 1 bedroom place, with a furnished kitchen, wi-fi, a designated parking spot and a private back patio perfect for starting the day with your morning coffee. It looks just like the pictures!
Our stay at Rialto was brilliant from beginning to end. We especially appreciated Judit assistance in meeting us to hand over the keys she went much further than required and gave us lots of advice on our stay and how best to get back to the airport. This was fantastic as we had no idea without this advice .The accommodation was ,clean comfortable and centrally located. We felt secure and had easy access to market Rialto bridge and short walk to San Marco square. the apartment was attractive with plenty of bedding and towels ..The washing machine and dishwasher were a bonus. The apartment was large,spacious attractively decorated and made our visit to this beautiful location all the more enjoyable. We thank Judit Mark and Bonnie for such great stay in Venice
