Tuscany-Chianti Villa 10

This exquisitely restored farmhouse is situated in one of the most beautiful positions, right in the heart of Chianti Classico. From its secluded position the views are absolutely stunning, with all the windows framing a picture of the lovely Chianti countryside at its best. The spacious interiors have been restored to a very high standard, in an authentic Tuscan style and tastefully furnished with ethnic furnishings and antiques. The living areas all open via french windows onto the garden on one side and an internal patio on the other, making the rooms very light and airy. In the patio there is a lovely vine-covered pergola with marble table, ideal for “al fresco” dining. To the front of the house, the furnished terraces provide the perfect spot for enjoying the magnificent views. On this side, there is a pathway leading to the beautiful swimming pool with overflow effect, in a particularly panoramic position. The pool has a large shallow end for children. To the rear of the property, is a converted barn where the housekeeper lives. Resident cat at the property. The driveway leading to Lucarelli was partially cemented at the end of 2013 in order to make it easily accessible to all guests, especially those arriving on their first day with a heavily loaded car.

My family and I enjoyed our week in Camporempoli very much. We will carry back many fond memories of our sunny days in the beautiful Chianti countryside. Thank you for the kind gifts of Tuscan products. We enjoyed them very much. Our house maid, Mariana, was very helpful and friendly. She made our stay easy and enjoyable. The house, garden, and pool were in perfect condition. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation. We hope to return to Cammporempoli or one of your other properties again soon.

All of us had a lovely week at Camporempoli. The villa was everything that you described and more. Mariana was a great treasure; opinion in our group was divided between those who wanted to invite her back to the USA with us vs. those who simply wanted to throw her into a sack and drag her back. The wifi worked well. And it was an additional treat to find a music system that would play music from an iPod. Someone had gone to a great deal of trouble to cure the generous allotment of firewood we found.

We studied the Salogi catalog for our first foray at renting in Italy. It came down to six "finalists". We gambled on Camporempoli as it was featured as "the best view in Tuscany". Salogi had it right. A decade on, we have not missed a year. The country style house has a wonderful pool with a panorama to die for, fully functional kitchen, lots of space for family or guests, and a decor that blends the gardens, rustic stone and creature comforts in perfect balance. Dawn to dusk, we are transfixed by the play of light on the vineyards and ancient villas across the valley. A spot you'll never forget.

We have just had the most lovely autumn visit to Camporempoli very near the lovely town of Radda in Chianti on the road towards Florence - turn left and up and up you go over the brand-newly cemented steeper bits of the private road to arrive almost on the top of a hill at Camporempoli and you are rewarded with what must be the most sensational view of any villa in Tuscany...vineyards and olive groves with little villages perched on their crests all the way to the horizon. Amazing views from every window and the terrace along the house with a sweet snug piazza surrounded by flowers behind the property, both with tables and chairs for al fresco eating. - Every room is beautifully and tastefully decorated making it a pleasure to stay there and just not move, even out of the summer season. Having said that there are some delightful places to explore nearby, like San Sano and Volpaia and perfect walks through the countryside with fine restaurants open even in November. We felt well looked after and spoiled by the staff, we couldn't be happier with the property and hope to come back next year for another restful and delightful holiday.

Our stay in this lovely house together with another couple was a blissfully peaceful week, marked by great meals cooked in the very well-equipped kitchen, walks in the hills and reading by the fire in the evening. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, and the whole house beautifully decorated. There was not an abundance of hot water, but as long as only one person showered at a time it was fine. The drive is steep, but the newly-cemented corners made it more than possible for our rented Fiat Punto. And autumn in Tuscany is brilliant!

La vue du Jardin de Camporempoli domine à 180 dégrée la vallée du Chianti avec ses collines, ses bourgs médiévaux et ses étendues de vignes et d'oliviers. Charme, authenticité et gout raffinée rustique caractérisent cette villa qui vous laisse deviner, par les objects, les photos et la bibliothèque, l'histoire de ses propriétaires. Nous nous sommes retrouvés en team pour une semaine de travail qui, entre un vin excellent, rdv au bord de la piscine ou encore grillades avec la meilleure viande de Toscane, nous a inspirés dans notre projet. A part le relax total on peut choisir de faire des magnifiques promendes à cheval ou des visites cultures entre Siena et Florence. Fortement conseillé aussi en famille. ____________ The 180° view from the garden at Camporempoli dominates the valley and Chianti hills, the little hamlets and the vineyards and olive groves. Charme, autenticity and refined country taste characterize this villa that imparts, through the objects, the photos and the library, the story of its owners. We were a working team spending a week here, and among the good wine, the wonderful barbecue with the best Tuscan meat and the time by the pool we got the best inspiration for our project. Further than relaxing you can chose to do beautiful walks riding a horse, or cultural trips to Siena or Florence. Recommended also for families. (translation from the French by Salogi)

Propriété idyllique perchée sur une colline verdoyante avec vue imprenable sur la campagne Toscane et ses villages pittoresques. Discrète, élégante, calme et chaleureuse, cette maison semble tout droit issue d'un film de Bertolucci ou de Kenneth Brannagh. En été, difficile de choisir entre les différents espaces extérieurs qu'offre le jardin... le bord de la piscine ou encore un des multiples canapés fort confortables sous les voutes accueillantes et fraiches du salon. La cuisine est belle et fonctionnelle, (ce qui tombe bien étant donné la qualité de la cuisine du Chianti !). Les chambres sont toutes plus charmantes les unes que les autres, les salles de bains ont de grandes baignoires très agréables et sont spacieuses. Martha, gardienne du lieu charismatique (avec elle on se sent en sécurité), est à disposition pour n'importe quelle demande. J'ai adoré séjourner à Camporempoli au mois d'août et aimerais désormais le découvrir en hiver car on y trouve aussi de grandes bibliothèques remplies de romans français et étrangers qui donnent envie de s'allonger au coin du feu (très belle cheminée) tout en regardant le paysage à travers les immenses baies vitrées.

What a beautiful villa, great location, the pool is gorgeous. Marta did an amazing job--it was always immaculate. My only recommendation would be screens for windows or at least the green "screen-like" things that were in some of the windows. The bugs were challenging at night and around the pool--particularly the bees but otherwise it was fabulous and i would absolutely recommend this house to others. Really wonderful.

From F.S.Y. - UK - in 2013-08-14
It did take us a while to find the villa. However, it soon became apparent that this perfect location offered tranquility and a really peaceful, relaxing holiday; with fabulous local markets a few minutes drive away. The local produce was delicious and we found probably the best bakery and butcher ever in the village of Rada in Chianti. The proximity to the beautiful towns of Sienna and Florence meant everyday we were spoilt for choice on things to do and see. The view from the villa is amazing, when you look out from the infinity pool you feel so at peace. There was a very sweet maid that came in often to keep the place clean and help prepare food. The many large rooms offered pleasure and comfort for everyone in my family. I would certainly recommend this to any family looking for a fantastic holiday, a week never to be forgotten.

From A.C.B. - USA - in 2013-06-18
This beautiful house and area are incomparable. The lovely stone house has six bedrooms including a wonderful turret with 360 degree views perfect for children. We had my husband's extended family and all were happily accommodated. Bedrooms are each individually and tastefully decorated. The staff keeps the house and grounds beautifully. The infinity pool looks over an amazing view of the vineyards, forests, and medieval town on the hill opposite. Dining can be alfresco or inside. A lovely Tuscan fireplace makes for romantic warmth even on chilly nights. The driveway that gets you up to this spectacular setting is paved at any steep areas making it easily driven. The surrounding area is dotted with numerous medieval towns, each with at least one outstanding restaurant, Coop shopping, and arts and craft shops. Greve hosts an authentic and comprehensive market of local goods and produce on Saturdays. With Sienna only 1/2 hour away and Florence 55 minutes (Italian bus system is amazing) one never runs out of things to do. Cooking schools, wine tours, sightseeing tours are all available in the area. My personal preference is sitting at the house soaking in the amazing beauty.

Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable a Camporempoli, lors des vacances scolaires de mai. La maison est très belle, grande et meublée avec beaucoup de goût (un mélange italo-anglais). Bien que nombreux (8 adultes et 3 enfants,entre 6 mois et 4 ans), chaque famille a pu trouver son intimité dans les très grandes chambres avec salle de bain individuelle. Mon mari a beaucoup apprécié la cuisine, très bien équipée, avec vue sur les collines du Chianti, où il a pu laisser libre cours à son inspiration culinaire! Les extérieurs sont très bien entretenus et une jolie promenade est à faire dans les sous bois à l'arrière de la maison. Les enfants ont été ravis de profiter de tout cet espace! On est impatient de pouvoir y retourner...

From RL - USA - in 2012-07-01
Really beautiful villa in a very scenic property. We loved the views and the villa itself. The gravel road to the villa was a bit hard to navigate, but nothing that was too difficult.

From SW - Germany - in 2012-05-01
We enjoyed our stay in Camporempoli very much! The villa is beautiful, the view impressive, the landscape really nice and the house and garden very well cared for by Marta and the gardener. We enjoyed the pool and also cooking was easy because of the well equipped kitchen. The service was perfect, there is nothing left, you could wish for.

From SM - USA - in 2010-09-01
Camporempoli and Marta (the Inn Keeper) are fabulous!! The views and the house are exactly as you see them online and more! Marta suggested a local chef prepare dinner for us one night, and the experience was delightful. There are some things for potential renters to be aware of when booking: (1) Driveway is extremely hazardous and really does need a powerful vehicle to manuever, (2) there is only one store/restaurant in Lucarelli so, bring groceries with you as the store might be closed when you arrive, (3) pool is not heated, but the thrill and views are worth the slight chill!, and (4) every dollar spent was WORTH IT!!

From ZJ - USA - in 2010-07-01
Camporempoli is much more lovely than the photographs on the website depict and is located in a very convenient part of Chianti. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained as is the villa itself. The views from the pool and patio are truly breathtaking. The pool is fabulous for kids and adults alike. Be aware that the driveway is long and steep and difficult to ascend without a four wheel drive vehicle. While more expensive than other properties, we would definitely rent

From R.W. - USA - in 2008-08-01
We want you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the villa Camporempoli. We’ve told many of our friends about it and showed them our photos, and some will possibly contact you for future booking

From P.S. - UK - in 2008-05-01
We found the accommodation excellent at Villa Camporempoli, the layout was superb for a large party and indeed worked even when we were only six. The location was beautiful and the housekeeper and her brother were most helpful in showing us where things were. They also, when we requested, rigged an outside lap so we could eat outdoors in the evening which was one thing that was missing when we arrived at the property
