Torsoli apartment description

Villa il Castellaccio lies in a panoramic position surrounded by vineyards and olive groves at Lucolena, near Greve, in the heart of the Chianti countryside. It has an independent VILLA (for 10/12 people) with its own private pool & garden and four large APARTMENTS (for 4/6 people) sharing another big swimming pool & gardens. All self catering units. Strategically placed for Florence (only 20 mins by train from nearby Figline) and a comfortable drive from Siena, San Gimignano & Arezzo, makes it an ideal home-base for combining sight seeing and relaxation. Have fun visiting medieval towns like Greve in Chianti, Castellina, Gaiole, Radda and along the way, discover typical restaurants, Castles, Wineries & Nature Reserves. On our hilltop you can find an C11th church and the ruins of the original Castle, destroyed in the C14th strife between Guelfs and Ghibellines. But after an exciting day out it’s great to get back “home” to the fresh country air and a dip in the pool !


Cooking classes and Dinners with Chef: It is possible to organize Cooking classes and Dinners (for those of you who just love the food but don't cook) with a professional Chef who comes to your kitchen on the evening you prefer- it's a great highlight to a stay at Villa il Castellaccio and very popular. You can choose from several menus, all typical Tuscan!!....your kitchen is cleaned up for you after which is nice too!

Wine tasting: We do wine and olive oil tasting in our wine cellar € 5 per person.
There is also a small museum of farming equipment from days gone by.

Trips further afield: Maybe some of you would like to explore more distant places
We can organize day trips or half day excursions to places like Rome, Siena, Venice and the Cinque terre (to name but a few).
With special permits enabling our drivers to go directly into the Historical city centres and often right up to the main monuments and places of interest, means you can concentrate your time enjoying the sights without the hassle of parking, traffic and endless walking.
Another advantage is for the Chianti wine tour; noone has to te-total for driving so you can ALL enjoy the wine!

They share a big terrace with gardens and the main swimming-pool, but often it will seem like you are the only guests, it's always so peaceful and quiet ! Castellaccio 1 sleeps 5 and has: a dining room with fireplace, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 single bedroom. This apartment is on the 1st floor and is reached by an external stairway.

As we are central, you can reach most places in minimum 5 to max.40 mins. The main cities of Tuscany; Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa & Volterra are also close at hand, and don't forget the fashion outlets The Mall & Prada !! both near Figline. From there you can hop on a train and be in Florence in just 20 mins (we supply timetables). In a day you can even reach the coast for places like Le Cinque Terre and romantic Porto Venere. The nearest villages for food stores and Typical Trattorias are Lucolena and Dudda,only 1km away.
