La Novellina - Midway between Florence & Siena, overlooking the Chianti hills

Overlooking the Chianti hills, La Novellina is a wonderfully renovated farmhouse built around a central 11th-century tower. This typical Tuscan farmhouse has been completely restored resulting in a delightful combination of tradition, authenticity, elegance and comfort.

La Novellina boasts an unbelievable view that stretches as far as the towers of San Gimignano. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees, La Novellina is part of a very large estate producing extra virgin olive oil.

The little village of Fiano, with two lovely restaurants, is just a mile away and can be reached on foot (over the fields) or in just minutes by car. Grocery stores, gas stations, bakeries, post office, bus stop and other services are located three miles away in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa.

Within a few miles of La Novellina you can explore Estruscan tombs, medieval cities, 14th-century castles, and Baroque churches. Or just relax at home and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view.

Host is fluent in English and will greet you upon arrival. She is also a great cook and offers cooking classes. In addition, the housekeeper is also a fabulous cook. If you are interested in authentic Tuscan dinners, please request the dinner dates in advance.
