A great place to relax and explore Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent one week at the property and we all had a great time. We relaxed on some days in the lovely garden and in the huge pool, which the kids enjoyed very much. On other days we travelled to nearby historic towns and local vineyards, making use of the property's ideal location! The regional food was of course great, but even better was the meal cooked for us in house.

We found the property charming, with stunning views, and the amenities generally very good. There is also a community garden which helped us out on occasion.

A little piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. Mainly sightseeing but also some shopping and wine tasting. Best was being able to relax in the confines of Le Bagnaie, this small hilltop complex of 8 villas is a couple of Kms off the main road in more or less perfect isolation. Pool was fantastic - a great size and only a handful of fellow residents in sight. Also, good tennis court and boules.

We made use of a local contact for a full blown Tuscan dining evening and would thoroughly recommend that to anyone.

The villa/farmhouse was clean, tidy and friendly with all the essentials. Some may see it as a problem that there is no TV - not in our case. My personal lizard count was above 30 and the wandering cat just added a lovely slice of something to the experience.

Its Tuscany in July so you have to expect mosquitos and other bitey things so be prepared for that. My only criticism, and its a personal thing I guess, is that the beds were quite hard.

Magnificent stay

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling with my wife and young adult children. Le Bagnaie was a fantastic location, one that you return to.

We rented a car at the Rome airport and had no trouble with the detailed directions provided by the owners. The villa is on a hill reachable by gravel road, which appears to be common in the area.

We made day trips to many places, including Florence, Siena, San Gimigniano, and Cortona. We also spent most late afternoons by the pool in an ideal if setting. The villa itself was extremely comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. We did have Serena, a local, prepare a Tuscan meal for us one night. It was the best meal of our two week trip to Italy.

The happiest place on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had the most sensational stay in Casa del Fico at Le Bagnaie. The house and grounds are in a great location - close to many quaint towns, restaurants and wineries, as well as a short distance away from major destinations like Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. The house itself was very comfortable and charming. We spent almost all our time outside in the private English-like garden. We especially loved sitting in the garden each morning with our coffee and breakfast. One of our favorite nights over our two week trip was having Serena cook for us at the house. Her food was out of this world delicious! One of our very favorite meals. You mustn't miss out on having her. We plan to be back and bring all our friends! Thanks to the Tisdales for hosting us!

Amazing Tuscan setting! Unparalleled views, beautiful patio and garden area!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The best location to enjoy the sites around Tuscany or to just relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio! Home is quite comfortable - great for families. Pool setting (with children's pool), swings, and "community" vegetable garden add to the fun.

Le Bagnaie is situated in the heart of Chianti, Tuscany. It is a 10 minute drive from Castellina in Chianti, a beautiful, typical Tuscan village with an abundance of character and amenities.

The house is very conveniently located for Siena and the world famous Palio (20 minute drive), San Gimigniano (30 minutes), Florence (40 minutes), Radda, Gaiole in Chianti, Volterra and many other picturesque Tuscan places to visit.

There are numerous wonderful traditional Tuscan restaurants in all the surrounding areas such as Castellina in Chianti, Siena, San Gimigniano, Colle Val D'Elsa, Volterra, Gaiole in Chianti, Radda in Chianti. The closest restaurant to Le Bagnaie is about a 5 minute drive. Cooks can be organised to come to the house and cook a traditional Italian menu.

There are superb walks all around and several start from the house.

It is a very popular area for mountain biking and these can be hired in nearby towns.
