San Polo in Chianti, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany
The GIAGGIOLO apartment is on the first and top floor of this characteristic barn on the farm estate of Podere Albereto, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside on the rolling hills above Florence, overlooking the San Polo in Chianti valley. The estate of 10 hectares of fields, olive groves and woodland is only 13 km from Florence and 2 km from San Polo in Chianti. At 350 metres above sea-level there is a gentle breeze in the evening so air-conditioning isn't necessary even in the height of summer.
At Podere Albereto you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, admire the breathtaking view of the Chianti landscape under the shade of a pergola, swim in the pool, sunbathe on the terrace, enjoy a home-cooked barbeque accompanied by a Chianti wine or alternatively visit all the cultural and artistic treasures that Tuscany has to offer.

A lovely peaceful, pretty location. Facilities were just right, with more than enough space for a comfortable stay. A great base for day trips, as not too far from destinations such as Florence, Siena, Lucca and Viareggio. Fabio and Trinidad were so helpful, friendly and...More

Here you can find a restaurant, a bar, two small supermarkets, a post office, and a bank. The valley overlooking San Polo has a wonderful landscape of undulating hills leading to the river Arno and historical monuments such as the old church of Rubbiana (13th century).
