Our b&b is a building from the 1300s. It is the seat of the Lega del Chianti that brought together all the neighboring villages of Chianti in order to protect themselves from the continuous attacks and expansionist ambitions of Florence and Siena. Many military rules and decisions were established in the consulting room, today our reception hall. Then it became a Palazzo Pretorio, a sort of fascist control district present in the small Italian villages. We also have the Pretore’s office room, which we call La Pretoria. The building has been restructured in 2012 according to the Italian law for the protection of historical assets.
Our b & b is NOT a hotel,but IT IS OUR HOME. So if you want a hotel we are sorry, but you MUST NOT book our b & b.
IMPORTANT: The rooms are the same as in 1300, they do not have the technical and acoustic characteristics of a hotel. There is no kitchen or breakfast floor, but a single space where the breakfast is prepared early in the morning to allow you to start at 07.30. We need time to prepare and to set,but it can cause some hustle and bustle. We apologize for any inconvenience. The rooms have been renovated without changing their slope and historicity. The rooms are positioned like a house not with the concept of a “Hotel.

We are in a medieval village without traffic and city caos, shops or shopping centers. Remember you are in an other country with other habits, life style and traditions. You may hear children play during the day, or early in the morning. You may be hearing hunters’ dogs barking, or birds in the countryside. In the evening some nearby restaurant guests may talk loud while they drink their last glass of wine…The silence is impossible in a b&b, you did not choose us to be isolated from the world! You stay in Italy where they use to drink and to sing on restaurant table, so there is not some silece and quiet.Please leave your stress home and enjoy your holiday.
Valeria is Mamma and Manager and Paolo is Papà and factotum. Both full of innovative ideas and experiences to tell … Certainly too many and as usual we go on to tell them, but it is our life story. We are passionate and will recommend the best itinerant choices to discover the beauty of the area. The presence of the children is fleeting. Vincenzo will be able to take you on bicycle paths with friends, but when he come back home, he will disappear like a ghost, only to appear sometimes for meals. Lucia is taken from her chats and romance with her friends, so she is also a random figure who appears also for meals. Fabbrizio is very friendly and very curious, the little is our competitor to speak so much, but don’t worry he is always hungry and very funny.
Because of the restrictions of the laws, established to protect the conservation of the historical buildings, we are not allowed to install air conditioners.
