About Daniele Sandrelli
I'm Daniele Sandrelli the owner of the farmhouse. The villa is situated in the center of our farm. We produce saffron, wine and lavender. My family lives here since 1865, but the farmhouse was restructuring on 2005. In the past was an ancient agricultural structure building at the beginning of the 1900's. Restructuring the villa was inspired by the typical Tuscany style: stone walls, "cotto" tile floors, joists roofs and beds in wrought iron and big terrace with porch.
Daniele Sandrelli purchased this House in 1865

Lovely place to call home for a week! The website Is an accurate representation of the property!
Castellina in Chianti is magical- every day started with a trip to town for cappuccinos and a “wee” pastry. Quiet and peaceful home to return to every night after a day of exploring the nearby cities... Highly recommend !!!!
Wonderful and relaxing stay!
Our stay in Castellina in Chianti was just what we were looking for...very relaxing, super clean and very convenient. The house has a nice layout that feels spacious. The patio has great views of the valley. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies if you want to cook, which we did a few nights, but the small town that is a few minutes away, has amazing restaurants to enjoy as well as lots of Chianti win, if you like. They also have several bottles of wine you can purchase at a fair price if you just want to stay home, relax and enjoy the views.
We will definitely come back and stay here again in the near future.
This is a lovely casa in a great location accessible to most locations by car. I visited with my husband and two children 9 and 12. We did day trips to Pisa (including the beach by the marina), Siena, Florence, and San Gimignano. We also visited Castello di Melleto, where we did a tour and wine tasting. Lastly we spent time at piscina il mulino di quercegrossa a lovely place with several pools.
There is a Co op in town which stocks most things and lots of restaurants to choose from. Lots of information provided and questioned answered by hosts promptly.
This farmhouse is tucked away in an idyllic location - and yet only a few minutes from Castellina. The house is very well equipped and perfect for having a relaxing holiday.
All of the photos accurately reflect the beauty of the property, and some! We spent two wonderful weeks at this enchanting villa. The location was perfect for us to traverse Tuscany. The villa became our home and the town of Castellina in Chianti became our neighborhood after a day Tuscan travels. Daniele and his mother were incredibly gracious hosts. They even went out and purchased a fan for us when higher than usual temps came through our last few days. We were very sad to leave, but we took many fond memories with us. We hope to return in the future!
Pure Perfection in Charming Tuscany
We fantasized about this place for months, based on the pictures and I thought we would be disappointed because our hopes were so high. But we weren't; it was even better than the pictures. The gravel driveway up to the property winds through the family's vineyard; the family makes and sells lavender bath and home products; and the family cat would come visit. It was quiet, peaceful and views that went for miles, the only sounds were birds serenading you, and an occasional barking dog. The property was modern and fully equipped, absolutely perfect. The location is perfect to explore Tuscany: Castellina is a sweet small village that feels authentic and still a bit undiscovered; Florence, Siena, San Gimiagnano are easy drives. We've stayed at many VRBO rentals, and this one is easily the best. We'll be back for sure. One word of advice is to make it to Coop grocery store in Castellina by 20:00 (8pm) before it closes, to get staples you need for the house.
