Description

This beautiful property belongs to the Campalli estate, a huge farm of 750 acres that produces Chianti Classico wine, and includes the Castle of Campalli.The 360° view from each point on the estate ranges over endless rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves. On a clear day it is possible to see even the towers of San Gimignano in the distance. La Corte di Campalli is an impressive stone-built farmhouse that dates back to the 16th century. It takes its name from the striking internal courtyard around which it was built. The property was totally restored in 2002 by its discerning owners, who used authentic traditional materials of the area and equipped it with all modern facilities. The interiors are particularly airy and spacious, with doors both to the courtyard and to the garden. Guided tours of the estate and the castle, including Tuscan wine tasting, can also be arranged. Past clients particularly appreciated the visit of the wine cellars guided by the owners, and the experience is even more enjoyable in September, a beautiful month for visiting this part of Tuscany, when the guests can assist and participate to the wine harvest. Although in a secluded and quiet location, it is only 7 km away from a highway exit and therefore is also an ideal base for trips to the Chianti area and main Tuscan towns.

"Wonderful Villa" My husband & I were 2 of 10 friends that stayed at this beautiful villa for a week in September. Simonetta & her family welcomed us with open arms & wonderful cheese, bread & wine for our arrival. She was full of information about the history of the villa as well as practical information of the area which helped us get settled in quickly - groceries, restaurants, etc. She was always helpful & quick to respond to any questions we had. She arranged for an 'in house' dinner to be prepared for us - it was lovely - 40 Euros per person. Also, since the villa is location on a working Chianti vineyard Simonette arranged for us to see the harvesting of their Merlot grapes & walked us through the wine making process. It was so much fun - great memories! The villa itself is very spacious. No problem with 10 of us sharing the space. There was plenty of room for everyone. There are 4 living room/sitting areas! Kitchen / dining room is a wonderful area where we spent most of our time. There was cleaning service 4 days & towels replaced mid-week. Outside areas - lovely - wonderful views. Lots of parking for our 3 rental cars. We visited many of the Hill Towns in the area, Assisi, Florence, Siena, even Cinque Terre for a 1 day tour. Very central if you want to be in the Tuscan Region.

Needed to write up how amazing this property was... if you want a true tuscany experience this is the place to go!!! most outstanding property, surrounded with views to die for of vineyards and olive groves. It is a wine producing property, and the owner was kind enough to take us to the vineyards and took us through the whole wine making process it was absolutely outstanding. We were 12 people and the villa was totally accomodating, we actually never used half of the space it was spectacular. The owners Simonita and staff were extremely welcoming and saw to our every need. Would rate this as outstanding!!!

Besides the incredible spaces, bedrooms, antiques and the perfect pool, what you really have to understand is that this Villa is dead center to anything you would want to do in Southern Tuscany. I defy anyone to find something worth going to that is more than 20km away, hop in the car and boom you are at any vineyard, any historic town, Siena, Brunello, you name it! Worth mentioning is that the owners are very kind and accommodating. Bring another family, this villa is huge. You cannot go wrong at this Villa!

It more than met our expectations!!!!! Thanks for your help and good advice. Il Corte di Campalli was terrific, Señora Giani was a gracious and helpful host, and the villa was extremely comfortable. A very good choice.

Well, we are all back from our vacation and everything was great! The house was really amazing, the property beautiful and the owners lovely. Thank you.

We could not recommend this property more highly. The owners are wonderfully gracious and helpful. We have rented several properties in Tuscany and this was the best by far. The pictures do not do it justice. It is close to everything, yet far enough from the highway and Autostrada that you feel isolated. Be certain to schedule a dinner with the private chef. She was wonderful!! The wine from the estate is also fantastic!

We were very pleased with La Corte, especially with the level of service provided by Simonetta, the owner. Comments are below -- Villa - wonderful vistas of surrounding olive groves and vineyards from all the bedrooms and living spaces! Ample room for 2 families, and we really enjoyed spreading out over the mulitiple living rooms. Dining room accomodated all 8 of us very comfortably, as did the outdoor dining table. Pool and lounge area had amazing view of surrounding hillside, with beautiful sunsets! The large grassy areas were also well used by all 4 of our kids. Configuration of bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms worked well for our group. Simonetta - extremely warm, hospitable and accomodating to our needs. She also went above and beyond our expectations when our son (age 8) cut open his chin on the pool coping. She drove with us to the hospital in Siena, translated as we checked into the ER, took us to the pharmacy, brought ice cream to the villa to help cheer him up... I was so touched by her efforts! We would definitely rent this villa again on a future return trip to Tuscany, and would highly recommend it to friends.

Simonetta, we just wanted you to know how much we miss being in your beautiful villa, which reflects your inner beauty and vitality! We will never forget the wonderful and memorable experience we had at your magnificent villa and will always be appreciative of your kind and generous hospitality. With much love and appreciation Lee

McGintys loved the villa...."delightful" "owners a very nice couple" "beautiful spot" the best food they had on their trip were the meals prepared by the cook in the villa!

From GC - UK - in 2010-09-01
This is by far the best place we have stayed in during our visits to Tuscaany. It is wonderfully restored with great views and perfectly located for day trips Siena and Florence. I would highly recommend a home cooked meal...ours was excellent. Simonetta speaks excellent English and is very helpful.

The Villa, it's views and the area were stunning. The villa is up a 2 km untarmaced road so you should be careful if you have a sports car, but there is the advantage of privacy and peaceful surroundings.The hosts could not have done more to make our stay very memorable. We were a family including a 22month old.

Amazing property and area. The maid sesrvice was excecptional. Much better than expected. The location is excellent. Very close to Siena and lots of smaller towns that are worth exploring. We were actually overwhelmed when we arrived. It was much nicer than we expected. The pictures don't reflect how nice it is. Kitchen is perfect. Everything you would need is there. Pool water is cold, but refreshing. The kids loved it. The bathrooms were great expect some of the bathrooms showers were small. The owners were wonderful and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Lovely people.

From AW - USA - in 2008-09-01
We had a great time. Our hosts couldn’t have been nicer. The facility was very well kept, the pool refreshing. Campalli, as you know, is a winery with its vineyards. They also grow olives and wheat. It is a fairly comprehensive operation. The chief farmer’s wife is the chef. In a previous life, she was a caterer and is a fabulous cook. We had two incredible dinners and a very filing breakfast. It was first class. We had a terrific time and hope to use you again

“Just wanted to let you know that Mr Z. called the other day to say that their stay at La Corte di Campalli earlier this year was wonderful. Hosts were very helpful and nice. Clients thought that it was a wonderful property for a stay in Tuscany
