It is so beautiful that it is on the front cover of our catalogue

In the vicinity of Leonardo da Vinci's birthplace Vinci, Streda Belvedere is located with a fantastic 360° view of the countryside. Over the hills you can see the village of Vinci and vineyards as far as the eye can see.

Streda Belvedere consists of 9 apartments furnished as a part of the vineyard.

The apartments were established in 2008/09 and frequently renovated based on the site's philosophy: "Art and culture are the essence of man - wine is the essence of the earth." There is an oasis of peace and quiet here with the owner Claudio who fully enjoys life.


The wine is main thing for Claudio, and don't hesitate to ask about the production, and you will get the whole story of the vineyards and his family's history for generations. Streda also has its own - more limited - production of olive oil. Claudio himself lives on site in one of the apartments.

The apartments are furnished with the utmost comfort in mind - eg. there is air conditioning, internet and dishwasher in all apartments. And approximately half of the apartments are decorated in very modern Italian design.
A bread van passes Streda almost every morning so that it is possible to buy bread for breakfast and lunch.

The pool is open from 31 / 3 - 13/10.

In one of the two houses with apartments - Belvedere - there are 5 apartments with grape names. They have a large common terrace facing the pool and the open countryside.

In the second of the two houses - Clarinetto - 4 apartments are located with musical instrument names. They have more individual terraces (but still very open) and facing the common area between the buildings. These apartments are decorated in contemporary Italian style (pop art). The furniture is designed by Licheri and Cappellini

The apartments with room for 2-4 people and 4-6 people have sofa beds for the last to people. If these wish to sleep separate and an extra bed therefore is required, this is possible for an extra fee of 15 euro/night.
