This picturesque old farmhouse is set amidst the beautiful landscape of Chianti where the vineyards are close, and the quality of the wines is high. Briefly, one of Tuscany's most charming small towns, the pool and large garden gives Il Paggino a strong hand.
You'll find yourselves in the heart of historic Chianti land where the wine has been produced for years, and the small roads that lead to the farms in the area existed long before the main roads for tourists were laid. The old stone houses have today been restored and divided into six spacious homes for rent, and you get to share the large garden with a small playground, table tennis, shared barbecue and pool of 12 x 6 metres.

The apartments are large and nicely decorated with classic furniture. The traditional decor appears fresh with nice colour schemes that blend well with the style. Each apartment has a stove with four ring gas hob, a dishwasher (except Agrifoglio) and a refrigerator. The apartments on the first floor have the best views and a table and chairs in the garden. There is free Wi-Fi in all apartments.

Positive: Clean, nice and cool apartment without a TV, good beds, Wi-Fi works well and is stable, very sweet Hosts; Giuseppe, who brought ice cream and prosecco, good freezer and big fridge, fine, big pool with depths ranging from 110 cm to 160 cm. The traffic noise wasn't so bad - the neighbour's dog was, on the other hand!
Negative: You cant walk to Redda, even though In-Italia says you can on their website - the road is too long, narrow and dangerous, the garden is worn with old, rusty and unusable garden furniture, the playground consists of one old swing, the pool are is also below standards (the pool itself is fine): the parasols are cheap and break easily - same story with the sunbeds - also remember to bring your own towels.
All in all an okay place, which is very central for trips and has a sweet owner. If only you had invested a bit more in the pool area and garden. The pool area has the most beautiful view over Chiantis forests and hills.
We missed some better garden furniture and especially a place that just belonged to the apartment. The garden furniture was very slimy and simple. We would've liked some more porcelain. When all that is said, it was a lovely place, which we enjoyed staying at. We were very well received and got some fine and very kind help. Kind regards Kirsten Homann.
