La Valle is a restored hay barn that lays on the hillside 300 metres walk (or 2km drive) from the exquisite village of Lecchi in Chianti. Surrounded by tracts of serene and timeless countryside La Valle can be found nestled amongst olives and vines in the sublime beauty of the Chianti landscape affording vistas decorated with the medieval castles of Monte Luco and Brolio beyond.
In addition to aesthetic pleasures, this region offers exceptional cuisine, enhanced by many of Italy's greatest wines, virtually every village possesses a noteworthy Trattoria where you can enjoy food unrivalled in its refined simplicity and Lecchi within 300 meters and San Sano within 3 km are no exceptions. La Valle is at the end of a 500 meter private road which also acts as a foot path that passes the front iron gates of the house and down to Lecchi. There are extensive private gardens that are totally fenced with beautiful lawns and planted areas and paths to lead you from terrace to terrace and down to the pool and into the small olive grove at the foot of the land.

To the other side of the ground floor the corridor leads onto an ample double bedroom to the right and a bathroom with shower next to it. Sharing the bathroom and on the other side of the corridor is a larger bedroom which has a splendid opening onto the gardens and lawns. There is small laundry room at the end of the corridor with a washing machine. The external terracotta stairs take you to the large upper terrace furnished with table and chairs, from here the vistas are even more dominant and the splendid Brolio Castle can been seen in the distance.

Internet WI-FI - available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
