“Our recent stay at the Villa on the Santo Stefano Vineyard was wonderful! We had a party of 8 staying there for a week and the accommodations were perfect. The photos on VRBO can’t capture the views from the private patio and pool area. Sunsets were phenomenal! The best part of this stay was the delightful hostess Elena! When we arrived there was a huge bowl of fruit from their garden on the kitchen table and the fridge was stocked with water, several bottles of wine from the vineyard and cheese. Elena gave us a tour of the villa and then we were given a wine tasting of their wines just steps away. Breakfast can be arranged in advance and it is worth the additional cost. It is an amazing spread with eggs, cheese, juice, croissants, meats, fruit, you name it. The croissants are baked fresh every morning and are the best I’ve ever had. Elena was so helpful in recommending and helping us make dinner reservations at local restaurants. They were all fabulous! I would also recommend scheduling a cooking class with Elena. She is an amazing chef. Our group took the cooking class and she was wonderful making sure the 2 children in our group were included in the fun. We made tempura zucchini flowers stuffed with sardines for an appetizer, homemade gnocchi with basil and garlic pesto, chicken with the most delicious tomato sauce, and tiramisu for dessert. We ate our delicious meal in the beautiful courtyard watching the sunset and drinking their fabulous wine! In addition to the wonderful Elena, the other staff members were delightful! It’s a family operation and we were treated to a tour of the wine cellars and vineyard by Elena’s charming niece, Irene. Also, Elena’s kitchen and housekeeping staff were so lovely. They did not speak English nor we Italian but somehow we were able to communicate and their warmth was felt! I must also give a nod to the vineyard cats, Billy and Romeo, who entertained my granddaughters the entire stay. My favorite memory from our visit was on our last day as we were carrying out our luggage. We heard “arrivederci!”. We looked across the street and one of the kitchen staff had opened her second story window and was waving goodbye to us with the sweetest smile! This is a truly magical place that goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome! Bravo to Elena and all! We will be back!”
“Chianti: Wine and Olive Oil Tasting with Cellar Tour” (BACCO)
Friendly people, family owned and very generous. Great wine and olive oil too.
Don’t miss out on the Rosé! Thank you!
Received Olive oil
Very, very professional package
Test of oil perfect, as usual
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at your establishment for 3 days, about 19 months ago.
It was the beginning of our European holiday and what a way to start it off.
Your family and staff were outstanding in making us feel so welcome.
Everything from the location, food and let’s not forget your fabulous wine, ensured the time we spent there was so memorable.
Your beautiful country is suffering at the moment and while you won’t remember us, we certainly remember and are thinking of you
This was one of the highlights of our time in Florence. My wife and I took our two adult daughters to Santo Stefano for a tour, wine tasting and a fantastic lunch. Irina and staff were outstanding and really made us free like part of the family. The wine was terrific, so much so we had a bunch shipped back home. We also included a couple bottles of the outstanding olive oil. We highly recommend stopping at the vineyard if you have the opportunity.
My wife and I had booked this tour as part of our 20th anniversary visit across Italy and were both very surprised and pleased by the wonderful and friendly welcome, tour of the family business, fantastic tasting with accompanied antipasti followed by wild boar ragu and pasta lunch.
Irenia and Elania made us feel like family and wish we could have stayed and not be rushed off back to Florence.
Definitely a high point of our trip to Italy!
Irene is a really nice person and the wine tour was absolutely interesting. She speaks in English really well and make all her possible to make people understand everything and feel confortable during the tour;
She is passionate by the vineyards and we can feel this during the stay there
The wine tasting is really good as well as the bruschette served with it.
We came from Belgium to visit it and it was a great time.
We really thank you Irene for your nice welcoming and personality as for the wines and the time shared with us.
In September we stayed with friends in the Villa with privat pool, it was a fantastic experience. The environment was unbeatable if you want to experienc true Tuscan nature and life. If you want to relax this is the perfect place, but there are also many nice excursions at reasonable distance such as San Gimignano, Siena, Florens and the nearest village of Greve in Chianti where there is a grocery store and you can eat at restaurants. When we stayed at Santo Stefano we did the cooking activity, which was very nice and the food tasted amazing. We also participated in wine tasting and wine guide with Elena and Irene, it was very nice and interesting and so I would like to recomend you to take the opportunity to experience that. We are so glad we discovered Fattoria Santo Stefano and took the chance to live there for four days. (We are going back in July, we looking forward to it)
