Il Trebbio was constructed nine hundred years ago as a small, fortified castle for a member of the powerful Guidi family, whose fiefdom stretched as far as the Casentino Valley. The lovely old building sits on a hilltop surrounded by rolling hills just minutes away from Castellina-in-Chianti. Ancient stone walls enclose luxuriously furnished interiors, with air-conditioned bedrooms, in which traditional beamed ceilings and tiled floors provide a backdrop to a valuable collection of local antiques and contemporary paintings. The gentle hillside setting allows rooms on two floors to access the very pretty terraced garden, and makes the large, infinity-edged pool seem to float above the surrounding fields. Two large loggias offer shady spots for lounging. Il Trebbio, which translates as ‘The Harvest’, lies in the heart of the Chianti wine-producing area, a stone’s throw from several very good restaurants and within easy driving distance of both Siena and Florence.

The fortifications and covered walkway of Castellina-in-Chianti, 3.5km/2 miles, bear witness to its many long years at the centre of battles between Florence, 40 minutes, and Siena, 20 minutes; today its primary preoccupations are wine and olive oil. Castellina is situated in the southern part of the Chianti Classico wine-producing region, just off the Chiantigiana road. Hundreds of stone villages are sprinkled among these impossibly picturesque hills, many with wonderful restaurants and wine bars tucked into their narrow streets.
