About Linda Blakley
Owned and run by our family the property offers our guests a warm and welcome enviroment in which to enjoy typical tuscan hospitality and enjoy genuine produce such as our own extra virgin olive oil, grapes, fruit and vegetables in season all produced by ourselves.
Why Linda Blakley chose Castellina in Chianti
Our surrounding countryside is the ideal place to enjoy nature in peace and quiet, relax, walk or trek the ancient Via Romea which crosses our property. Here you can admire the beautiful scenery over the Val d’elsa and see in the distance the towers of San Gimignano and the surrounding hills of Monteriggioni, Colle Val d’elsa and Casole d’elsa. Florence is 45 minutes by car and Siena 25 minutes. There is much to do and see in this area and the property is ideally situated to explore Chianti and beyond. A 15 minute walk takes you into the town of Castellina where you will find shops and galleries, many very good restaurants, pizzerias and cafès, a supermarket, winecellars and excellent icecream. The town itself is lovely to explore and there are many organised events which we will let you know about in advance. The area has many very good wineries to visit and partake in winetasting and we can organise winetours with pick up and drop off here on the property. These tours take in 2 or more wineries and include lunch or dinner for a very good price.
What makes this Barn unique
The result of this work is a harmonious and comfortable enviroment which provides three apartments selectly decorated with traditional rural tuscan furnishings. The restoration that has been done is in bio edilizia or ecologically restored using only ecological materials so that the house and apartments breathe. The setting is such that there are stunning views over the surrounding valleys and Tuscan countryside. While we are close to the town center we are also a very quiet and tranquill spot where one can relax and enjoy the Tuscan surroundings.
