  • Located in a restored 8th-century farmhouse in the Chianti region, just a few miles from the town of Tavarnelle, Podere San Filippo boasts spectacular views of the surrounding Tuscan landscape. The 12 self-catering apartments, which range from one bedroom to three bedrooms, are decorated in simple but appealing style and offer plenty of space for families. Some are located in the main house, others in the property’s renovated barn. Kitchen facilities are excellent. There’s no onsite restaurant, but Podere San Filippo’s nearby sister property, the luxurious Castello Del Nero Hotel, has both a restaurant and a spa that guests are welcome to enjoy. The location is convenient for sightseeing, and activities nearby include hiking, horseback riding, hot-air ballooning, biking and more. For guests who want to spend a day in the city, shuttle service is available to Florence and Siena.
