Surrounded by the vineyards the house has a great view on the town of Siena (only 10 minutes by car). The Telegraph's house is the hamlet of Pontignanello, were my family lives and next door to the family wine cellars: guided tours, wine tasting and direct sale of wine and olive oil are possible.

The space

In the past, this apartment represented for the inhabitants of Pontignanello (a little hamlet) 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's place was great. Exactly what we needed- country setting-away from town. It was peaceful and enjoyable.

Our stay with Family Losi was amazing. Valeria's welcomed us with fresh fruits and vegetables from her garden and an unbelievable dessert treat. Valeria's family did not speak much English (and our Italian is greatly lacking) but Valeria made sure everything was in order and her family did a great job showing us around anyway. The home is an amazing space and it is on a beautiful and very secluded vineyard. We only saw three or four people during our two-day stay there. Last but not least, the wine they produce was great and they offer it to their guests at a reasonable price.

Valeria's place exceeded our expectations in every way. We felt we got a true Tuscan experience. Would definitely stay again as it had the perfect rustic charm and Valeria and her family were very gracious hosts. Although a bus is available I would recommend having a car to get around as you are very central to many great places in the area. Loved our stay! Thank you Losi family!

Our stay with Valeria was fantastic. The location is quiet and surrounded by vineyards, Valeria offered us fresh farm eggs and figs, and there is a private water fountain with fresh spring water. It is a short drive to bustling Siena where there is plenty to see and eat. We had a very memorable stay.

We had an incredible stay at the Losi family vineyard. While there, we walked around, ate dinner a couple of times walking down the hill at Ristorante Pizzeria La Piccarda, and did a tour/tasting of the Losi family's operation. The wine was fantastic. A very authentic stay! Would recommend coming here!

Beautiful stay right outside of Siena! Valeria was a wonderful host, answered all my questions, and very accommodating. Private tour and tasting of her vineyard and winery was truly amazing. Would 100% stay there again and highly recommend to all others! Thank you, Valeria!

I need more stars to give Valeria's place, my second time here and her hospitality, property and location are perfect. This is a must stop for anyone wanting to stay in Tuscany and the Siena area. Please make sure you ask Valeria for a wine tasting and make sure you buy some of her wine and excellent olive oil to take home with you. Some of the best of both in the Chianti area.... Amazing! My wife and I cannot thank Valeria enough.

Valeria User ProfileValeria is a superhost.

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!
