We had a wonderful time @ the property:
The stunning farmhouse was spotless, perfectly located, with all equipment which was needed. Especially the outside area with the pool was our highlight.
The landlord itself was absolutely nice and friendly and invited us for dinner one night.
So all-in-all: We spent precious hours in Starda (Commune Gaiole die Chianti) and the Chianti Region, not even the bumpy road from the main road to Starda could upset our happyness.
Unfortunately, the local restaurant at Starda was a huge disapointment (but nothing to do with the landlord or the property itself.
The apartment is very nice, fully equipped, you will find there everything you need, it's clean & comfortable. The apartment is a part of house where Ricardo’s family lives, you have separate entrance & separate small patio but you have to share swimming pool. Ricardo & his wife are very nice & helpful. The only thing we were missing is more comfortable swimming pool. In overall I do recommend for 2-3 days.
It was one of the best experience ever.The 1000 yr old Farm House is exactly as described on the Airbnb website. Riccardo and his family are perfect hosts and they do anything to help you. Riccardo was very very flexible and helped us in anyway we needed.The Farm House is situated on top of a hill in the forest 650 meters above sea level which have excellent views and plenty of fresh air.Having a car is a must due to the location.If you are a wine enthusiast it is the ideal since it is in the famous Chianti Classico region were one can attend several wine tasting sessions few minutes away from the Farm House. I recommend to anyone on Airbnb especially if you are planning a nice quite holiday away from the chaotic city life.
Great experience in Chianti. The farm house is quaint and cosy, overlooking the beautiful wine hills of Chianti. The property is well equipped and we were able to cook dinner. There is a good restaurant located mere steps from the home and plenty to do in the area. The weather was a bit cool while we were there and because it is an older farmhouse the heating is not great, although there is a fireplace. Riccardo and his family were incredibly accommodating and gave us great ideas for things we could do in the area.

About the Host, Riccardo
"Non ti ho dato, o Adamo, né un posto determinato, né un aspetto proprio,né alcuna prerogativa tua, perché quel posto, quell'aspetto, quelle prerogative che tu desidererai, tutto secondo il tuo voto e il tuo consiglio ottenga e conservi. La natura limitata degli altri è contenuta entro leggi da me prescritte. Tu, non costretto da nessuna barriera, la determinerai secondo il tuo arbitrio, alla cui potestà ti consegnai. Ti posi nel mezzo del mondo perché di là meglio tu scorgessi tutto ciò che è nel mondo. Non ti ho fatto né celeste né terreno, né mortale né immortale, perché di te stesso quasi libero e sovrano artefice ti plasmassi e ti scolpissi nella forma che avresti prescelto. Tu potrai degenerare nelle cose inferiori che sono i bruti; tu potrai, secondo il tuo volere, rigenerarti nelle cose superiori che sono divine."
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, De Hominis Dignitate.
