In the old barn of an old Tuscan farmhouse dating back to 1600, we derived an elegant apartment of 120 square meters equipped with every comfort, We are in Noce, quaint little village of Chianti. The area was recalled by Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy. Located in the heart of the Tuscany hills of Chianti, due to its location enjoys an excellent climate and healthy air in both summer and winter. Great wine and olive oil superb!

Quel bel (website hidden) Que les photos, magnifique paysage et la maison superbe. Que de beaux souvenirs. Merci Suzanna!
Grazie mille Susanna ! A wonderful 10 days in the Tuscan countryside. We enjoyed a spectacular view from our patio overlooking the hills and valleys of Chianti with a gorgeous sunset each night. A warm, comfortable and spacious villa accommodated eight of us for three nights and six for the remainder. Susanna and Georgio are kind, warm, quiet and available to answer questions when needed. Susanna cooked two delicious traditional Tuscan dinners for our group. I highly recommend this experience to others. The villa is only two kilometers to Tavarnelle for access to groceries (Coop), restaurants, bakeries and cafes. The hot tub / 'hydro massagio' was a welcome treat after spending hours on the road bicycles. We hope to return to PODERE TORRICELLA within the next three years and possibly stay for two weeks. This is a very special place.
Susanna and her husband were friendly and made our stay pleasurable. The villa was extremely nice just like in the pictures posted on Airbnb and the view from the patio was beautiful. We paid extra for Susanna to cook for us one night and the food was delicious. We also paid extra for her husband to take all eight of us to Montepulciano and surrounding areas which was worth it. We all had a wonderful time. The one thing we missed was on the day we left we didn't get to say goodbye to our hosts because they left the day before for the coast.
This beautiful apartment was just as described and the photos accurately reflect the rooms. The view from the terrace, however, is so beautiful it cannot truly be captured in a photograph. We loved sitting on the terrace any time of the day but watching the sun set was the best. Susanna was very responsive from the first inquiry throughout our entire visit. She was very helpful with suggestions for villages to visit and any other questions we had for her. We were 2 couples and had plenty of room for everyone. You could easily spend several weeks in the apartment and have lots of areas to visit during the day and room to relax if you did not go anywhere one day. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a great Tuscan experience. Also Susanna will prepare a wonderful meal for you that might be the best meal you have in Tuscany.
This is a beautiful villa in a perfect location for exploring Tuscany. Florence, Sienna, Lucca, and Pisa are all a short drive away. The villa is a beautiful quiet place to come home to after a day exploring. The views from the villa are stunning and the sunsets breathtaking.
Susanna was very nice when meeting us. She made dinner so that our first night there was easy and was responsive to all our questions via email during our stay.
There are a few things that I think are worth noting:
- there is no Air Conditioning in the bedrooms which are upstairs and get warm
- the pool is nice, but about 5ft deep, so hard for younger children to enjoy
- jacuzzi did not work when we were there. we tried many times but could not get it to go above 29 degrees Celsius, which is too cold to use. Unfortunately the host was not able to fix the issue. It was chilly when we were there and it would have been nice to be able to use it
- very slow and unreliable wifi, which we relied upon to plan our day trips
The house is perfect. Beds are comfortable. The localization is nice. We were at car distance of Siena, San Gimignano and Firenze. We were close to a lot of wine testing facilities and to a nice Coop Supermarket. Susanna and his husband are great hosts and are available to help. The view from the terrace is incredible. We will remember those sunsets for long.
I recommend the apartment to everyone.
Note to future renters
Don't hesitate to take the dinner option from Susanna. Great food and wine at fair price.
The pool is not private. If you have kids it's great for them to swim with new friends.
