The Space

In the past, this apartment represented for the inhabitants of Pontignanello the place where they could receive and send telegraph messages.
This apartment is part of a family farm house in Pontignanello and it is composed of two floors. Outside the windows, you can admire a wonderful view of beautiful vineyards, which grow on the rolling hills in Chianti until Siena. Close to this village is the old famous chartusian monastery – Pontignano.
The first floor is made of two bedrooms: two double rooms from their windows you can appreciate the amazing view of the vineyards of the Losi family, ancient producers of Chianti Classico. In addiction, you can relax on the sofa in the living room, which, if necessary, would became a bed. The bathroom on the same floor has a shower.
The kitchen is on the ground floor and has an ancient big chimney. The kitchen is fournished with a big fridge (including a freezer) and an oven. The kitchen leads to the dining room with a beautiful wooden table and six chairs.

The Telegraph's house is close to the wine cellars of one of the historical producer of Chianti Classico, Azienda Agricola Losi Querciavalle. In this wine estate, guided tours, wine tasting and direct sale of wine and extravergin olive oil are possible.

The Telegraph's house is the perfect solution for wine lovers, who want to discover the Chianti's secrets, bikers who want to ride the Chianti hills and families, who want to visit the close Tuscan cities of art and enjoy the nature...

  • Valeria is a wonderful and very helpful host. When we arrived she had made some delicious cherry cakes for us, it was a very lovely surprise!
    The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is very clean and spacious and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. The views from the windows are spectacular. It was very hot during the time that we were in Tuscany, but by keeping the windows and shutters closed during the hottest part of the day it remained nice and comfortable inside.
    We loved our little tour of the winery. The olive oil produced by the family is the most delicious I have tasted!
    Overall this is a truly wonderful place to stay with the loveliest hosts, highly recommended!

  • Lovely villa and Valeria's personal touches - fresh cherries, fresh eggs, wine from the winery to purchase in the fridge, and even a fresh cherry tart really made our stay special. Valeria's personal tour of her family vineyard and winery was a definite highlight. The villa is well located for day trips to neigbouring Tuscany villages - highly recommend.

  • L'accueil chaleureux de valeria ainsi que son sens aigu de l'hospitalité, la dégustation de vin, le charme de la maison nichée au milieu des vignes et des oliviers, la proximité de Sienne, la possibilité de découvrir la campagne toscane, ... Que de bonnes raisons pour revenir !

  • Great stay at la casetta del telegrafo..... The place was even better that we imagined. Old house, very clean and well equipped, including the kitchen.
    Very nice surroundings as it is in the middle of wine yards and olive trees.
    Valeria was a fantastic host, very welcoming and keen to share her passion with us - wine.
    The wine her family makes is great, so is their olive oil..... And her mother's cake, that she gave us when we arrived.
    Nothing negative to say. We had a really great time there and we will be back :)

  • Vriendelijke ontvangst, leuk landelijk huisje, goede keuken, ietwat onhandige wenteltrap. Prachtige omgeving, landschap glooiend, het gehuchtje herbergt een wijnbouw en olijfolie bedrijfje, waar je rrn rondleiding kunt krijgen.

  • We enjoyed our stay in the La Casetta del Telegrafo in Chianti very much. We were warmly welcomed with chocolates, a fruit basket and a freshly baked pie made by the Mom of Valeria. The house was very charming and everything worked (i.e., washing machine, heater, oven, ref and the stove). It had more than enough room for a family of 4. The view from the house into the winery is spectacular and we especially enjoyed the tour of the Losi winery. We were able to sample their wine and the olive oil they produced. They even have a yellow van that delivers fresh bread every morning. I thought that was cute. Since i cook, i appreciated that Valeria's kitchen was well-stocked with the necessary spices (salt, pepper, pepperoncino, thyme, sugar, soy sauce, etc.), so we didn't have to buy. We were even able to pick fresh lemons from the neighbors! My kids loved the walks during the mornings and i was also able to jog along the road. However, you will need a car hire to stay in Valeria's place, as there is no public transport available, and the house does not have internet (which we sorely needed because we were on a "working" vacation). Valeria was a very accommodating host and was always there when you needed her. I would recommend this place to those who want to have a special time with their family and to those who want to visit nearby towns like Sienna, San Gimignano, etc. We loved our stay. Thanks.

  • What an incredible stay!!! My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at La Casetta Del Telegrapho with the Losi family! Sadly we didn't get to meet Valeria, but we were welcomed by her mother with delicious treats and we were taken on a tour of the wine cellars with her father (amazing wine!!). The estate is perfectly located- only 15 minutes drive from Siena but surrounded by peaceful Tuscan countryside. This is a perfect base for exploring the rest of Tuscany- great food, great wine and scenery to die for (even in the rain). We did not want to leave ! Highly recommended!

  • We had the most wonderful stay at Valeria's house. The family was very kind to host us over the Christmas period, and Valeria brought us a lovely platter of traditional biscuits to sample! The house itself and the surrounding area is not to be missed. We hope to come again. Thank you Valeria and the Losi family.

  • Très jolie maison bien équipée. Valeria n'était malheureusement pas là mais sa famille s'est montre très avenante et se sont régulièrement assuré que tout allait bien.
    Localisation parfaite pour tous ceux qui veulent visiter la région.

  • Valeria's apartment is in spectacularly beautiful countryside, and her wine estate is lovely. The apartment is charming, spacious, clean, and very peaceful, with stunning views. Valerie is a wonderful host, who speaks perfect English. She provided an estate tour and wine tasting - splendid wines- and other treats. She also sent us to a restaurant close by that had wonderful food. The lovely drive into Siena was only 20 minutes.

I'm an open minded Italian girl, that has lived for almost an year during the university studies in Germany sharing flat with people from all over the world. My family produces fine wines in the historical region of Chianti and I'm now the international sales responsible. This work bring me often abroad. However during summer and spring, I love to organize visit of the wine cellar and tastings. I'm so proud of the work my family has made in the past, that when I speak about wine people say to me that they can feel and appreciate in our products our region, soil and traditional wine making. My two passions: travel and wine tastings!
