Your Retreat

Your Retreat

The guest room and private bathroom are part of our house, but have their own entrance so guests are completely independent.

The room is cosy, clean and very comfortable and the private bathroom is spacious with a walk-in shower and bidet. We provide all the fresh bed linen and towels, soap and toilet paper.

The room opens out onto its own covered terrace overlooking the garden. There is a simple covered OUTDOOR kitchen with gas hobs, kettle, toaster and fridge (no microwave or oven) and everything else you need to prepare and cook your own meals, and a table and chairs so you can eat ‘al fresco’!

The windows and the door are protected by MOSQUITO NETS – which means you can have the window open at night to let the breeze in, and not be attacked by mosquitos (or jumped on by eager cats even….)

We leave essential provisions such as orange juice, tea, coffee, sugar, milk and jam and eggs for you to prepare you own breakfast whenever you choose to.

There is a barbecue in the garden that you are welcome to use, or you can request a dinner with us in our home restaurant in the middle of our olive grove with views over Montefioralle.

WIFI – yes, we have fast wifi, so if you need to work from home you can!


There is NO air-conditioning. By keeping the shutters closed during the day the room will remain cool and the fan at night keeps the air circulating. During the winter months the room is heated by our wood burning kitchen range.

“La maison est charmante et il y a plein de ballades possibles à pieds. Sinon c’est très proche de Sienne et de Florence et la route touristique pour y aller est sublime. Je donne l’adresse à tous mes copains pour un temps en amoureux c’est idéal.”

Augusta, Germany

“We enjoyed our time at the Cosy Chianti Retreat so much! It’s a perfect little and quiet place for everyone who loves being in the nature and surround by animals. For breakfast we got some fresh eggs from Julia’s und Giovanni’s chickens and in the evenings we loved cooking in the outdoor kitchen.”

Marie, Germany

“We had a lovely time at Julia’s. The family is very kind and always ready to help. The two dogs are very nice and funny, we enjoyed it to have some furry company. The view is amazing, we couldn’t decide if it was better at daytime or at nighttime with the countless stars.”

“Très belle endroit au milieu des vignes.Le temps s’arrête pour laisser notre esprit se détendre milieu de la nature autour de la maison. Très belle accueil et agréable. Je vous recommande vivement. Nous avons bien profité du séjour.”

Alessandro, Italy

“Casa di Julia e Giovanni è l’angolo perfetto per chi ama il silenzio, la natura incontaminata e gli animali. Una vera esperienza di vita campagnola con il canto del gallo all’alba, visite in stanza di piccoli gechi e avvistamenti di cinghiali in lontananza! Julia e Giovanni sono host disponibili ed amichevoli.”
