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 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 recently restored 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 very helpful 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 such as Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni.
Ground Floor: Entrance through a big arcade; huge sitting room with arches opening both to the courtyard and the garden; large kitchen/dining room; TV room (with satellite TV); twin bedroom; bathroom with shower only. In the courtyard, room with bread oven; laundry room.

From every window we look out – to every walk/drink we take we find beauty. Then the owners generosity of time and information – we realized the hospitality and kindness was just so spectacular! Our family came together in your villa and had a wonderful time. The baby loved the tractor ride, the young adults loved the beautiful pool and warm sun and the adults are all grateful for all of it.

Fantastic time we had at your lovely villa. We will certainly be back for a longer stay. The pool treated us well as did the weather. Also, dinners served to us in the villa were tremendous! Thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful country with us.

I am about to turn 70 and my lifetime dream had been a villa in Tuscany. This was everything I had dreamed of and more. The villa itself was simply breathtaking! I only wish I could have spent more time there. If you are looking for a villa that will take your breath away, this is the one for you. Sadly we missed the grape harvesting. They have a machine that goes up and down the rows and only gathers the perfect grape. Their wine is excellent as well. The hosts were the best. Very nice and quite helpful in making this visit one to remember forever. It is well located. Close to Siena and Florence. Excellent restaurants everywhere. Wonderful, fun, sunset by the pool with a glass of wine simply perfect!

Wir haben schon einige Häuser/Villen in Italien und in Südfrankreich gemietet. Die Villa la Corte du Campalli war mit Abstand die beste. Die Lage ist traumhaft, die Vermieter und das Personal sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend, das Haus ist gutem Zustand und sehr sauber (tägliche Reinigung), etc. ******* We have rented several homes / villas in Italy and southern France. The Villa la Corte dio Campalli was by far the best. The location is fantastic, the landlords and the staff are very friendly and accommodating, the house is in good conditions and very clean (daily cleaning), etc. (translation by Salogi)

I'm sure there are plenty of lovely looking villas around Tuscany. Our own was beautiful but what made the stay excellent was the great office and cleaning staff. You felt so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The ground floor room with disabled facilities was also excellent for an intergenerational holiday. The villa is perfect for seeing the true Tuscan communities and every minute of the view is memorable. The local village of Castellina is the perfect spot to enjoy and is 10 minutes from the house.

The only upgrades we would recommend would be to the mattresses and some larger pots in the kitchen. Overall excellent. Exactly the Tuscan experience we were looking for. The cleaning service was excellent.

Amazing views from a property with lots of character and space Our stay at La Corte was wonderful. We very much enjoyed the views over the Chianti hillside from all the rooms within the property. The courtyard was a delightful setting for family meals and the spacious house was spot on for our group. The whole family loved the pool and had a wonderful time enjoying the spectacular setting around the poolside. Simonetta was a wonderful host and did a great job in responding to our needs including sorting more comfortable outdoor seating for us as i requested when booking. The property was exactly as described and her responsiveness and hospitality was superb.

"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!
From D.P. - USA - in 2013-06-08
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.
From DM - USA - in 2012-06-01
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.
From FR - USA - in 2010-09-01
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
