FACILITIES WITHIN THE APARTMENT:
The attico floor of the villa in the picture above contains the "Bellavista" apartment. The Villa is more than 200 years old and was completely restuctured in 1998 to return it as it was: wood joists, red terracotta floor and old fittings. Heating for the winter season and a public parking just front door and a pinewood and a private parking and garden at a few steps from the villa make it easy to manage the car.
The proximity to the fast highway to Florence and Siena and a hourly bus service few steps from the appartment makes of it an excellent localization to visit Florence, Siena (both reacheable in 30 minutes by car or 45 minutes by bus) and enjoying the Chianti, very well known for its wine and good food, all year round.
The building is located just in front of the Florentine door of the middle aged village of Barberino Val D'Elsa half way between Florence and Siena (30 kilometers to florence and Siena), along the roman Cassia Road. The village is in a breathtaking panoramic position, on the top of a hill of 373 meter above the sea level, dominating the west part of the Chianti Classico wine region.
A bakery store round the corner, 3 good restaurants-pizzeria at few steps distance, 3 pubs, grocery stores, banks, drugstore and an office of touristic informations, all at a walking distance from the apartment, and the use of the mountain bikes complete the offer to provide all you need for an enjoyable stay without moving from the village.

It is composed of a full fournished kitchen, a sleeping room with a double bed and a second sleeping room with 2 singles beds and a bathroom with shower. The two sleeping rooms have a magnificent view on the valley (sunrise direction) and the kitchen has a view to another valley (sunset direction), for this reason the apartment is called "Bellavista".
