    Own production of wine

    High quality

    Unique location

There is nothing left to chance. An absolute favorite!

Il Cellese is undoubtedly one of the finest country places we have seen. It is quite amazing beautiful in the beautiful Chianti not far from the picturesque medieval town of Castellina in Chianti. And then EVERYTHING is thought - here's a lovely garden, fragrant trees and shrubs, indescribably beautiful views, completed apartments, pool, to eat local food and especially the production of wine and olive oil. 

There are 7 apartments of high quality. Beautifully decorated with a mix of antiques and modern Italian solutions. Detached Did beamed ceilings, terracotta and local quality materials give the place a nice, warm atmosphere. There is a double sofa bed in the living area in each apartment , and they can easily be used . However, in Forno only a single sofa bed for 1 pers. You do not pay extra for use of the sofa bed.

The in-house restaurant is open 3 nights a week at 20.00 - Monday, Wednesday and Friday - and it's a great idea to sign up for these meals. The price of dinner here is 25 euros per. person (excluding drinks). On Sundays brunch from time 11-13 for 25 euros per . person incl . beverages. Both are exquisite pleasures, both when enjoyed indoors in the small restaurant and outdoor under the awning and with views of the hills. The restaurant is open from March to November.

Some apartments have a private terrace. The other apartments have places with tables and chairs available in the garden.

Il Cellese offers cookery school every Tuesday and Thursday. Culinary school costs 100 euros per . person, and you of course end by eating your well-prepared dinner. The activity takes approx. 2.5 to 3 hours.

The pool is located on a plateau for itself, and there are stairs up to the pool area. The pool is 16 x 8 m and 120 cm - 250 cm .

Shared laundry room with washer and dryer. Communal barbecue. Internet everywhere. If you would like to ride in the area, you can ask the front desk for help to rent bicycles at a professional bike shop. The tennis court is located in Castellina in Chianti (6 km) .

The road to Il Cellese goes through the most beautiful part of Chianti, and the last 1.7 kilometers is on gravel roads .

The owner's pride and joy is Il Cellese wines, that you will undoubtedly enjoy in the relaxing garden in the shade of the baking sun .
