Podere Campriano is a working family farm following organic practices, very close to the centre of Greve, with only a few rooms for rent. We enjoyed great hospitality from Elena and her family for 4 nights, and also had a wonderful cooking class with traditional Tuscan food (pasta, pork roast, grandmother's cake, etc) and wine from the vineyard. Elena and her son both speak good English, and were very helpful during our stay. This is by no means a 5-star luxury hotel, but as a quiet and traditional retreat in Chianti it is surely hard to beat, and we would be happy to return.

It is a short walk down the hill into Greve, and we walked down to the market square (10 min) for dinner every day. Continental breakfast with everything home-made (both sweet and savory), one of the best we had in Italy, do not miss the finocchiona (fennel salami). Room was nice with all amenities including a mini-fridge, and there are several tables outside as well as a pool overlooking the property. The pool is great for cooling down in the heat, though the pool area and furniture is fairly basic, a possible improvement could be to make this area even nicer.

Apparently 2018 was a good (bad) year for mosquitoes, and even with mosquito nets on all the windows and liberal use of repellent we were bitten quite badly. So be sure to bring appropriate bite prevention and relief (or buy it in Greve).

Lovely house on family run vine yard with nice views of the town of grieve. Breakfast was tasty..Elena will make eggs to order etc.
I would certainly reccomend.
This is definately not a 5 min walk into town & to clarify Elena’s response on my husbands review I did not usually wear 5 inch heels the only day I wore heels which were 2.5inch actually was for a wedding we attended in which we drove too. It’s up a very steep hill with no lights so most definately need a car. We had no hot water for the shower but when texting Elena about another matter first she messaged to say she was not at home she was cooking for 100 people so thought it would be pointless to mention the water.

Stayed for 3 days in June & would recommend it.

However you must have a car as it is at the top quite a steep hill with no lights so forget walking to the town for a late drink as it would not be possible to walk. Also the car park is very small & a bit of a headache to get in & out of.

The owner was very helpful & friendly, also the breakfast was good with a nice selection & freshly made omelettes etc.
Tip: Try & find ‘Zotto’ the family dog he is like a giant teddy bear & very friendly.

The town is small with a few nice restaurants around the main square & a co-op supermarket, (try La Cantina for a meal, very good)

The pool was up another smaller hill (easily accessed) but the sun loungers were not great & only a handful but to fair we had it to ourselves for a couple days (beware of the mosquitoes we got bitten a lot in the afternoon by the pool) The views from the pool are pretty amazing.

Overall a good base for exploring the area

(Would have gave it 5 stars but we had only cold water in the shower for 2 out the 3 days)

Dear guests,
thanks for your nice review, it's very helpful for our work, anyway, I need to clarify to the people will stay with us in the future that town is absolutely reachable by walk in 5 minutes, of course without a five-inch heels, like you wore usually. All our guests, love walk to dinner in town! I'm sorry about cold water into the shower but it would been easily say it that during your stay, instead now, on a review. I can't do nothin now but I could have do something if you informed me.

My mom and I absolutely loved our stay at Podere Campriano. A stunning location with a panoramic view of the countryside and the charming town of Greve (which was only a 10 minute walk away.) Elena and her family were warm and welcoming hosts and our room was very peaceful and comfortable. We had so much fun taking a cooking class with Elena and enjoyed great conversation with her about what it's like operating a family vineyard and the challenges and rewards of growing organic grapes. Speaking of grapes, the wine from this vineyard was absolutely incredible. Thank you Elena and family for the very special memories from our stay in Tuscany!

We booked for four nights but wished we could have stayed longer. The room was spacious and very comfortable, we just added milk to the fridge to make it perfect, (is brits must have our cup of tea in the mornings) . The views over the vineyard and olive trees to the valley and the town were just what we wanted to experience.The walk to The town was easy for meals in the evenings and seeing the firefly dancing on the air on the walk back was magical. We would reccomend the cooking class, we had great fun making bread, pate, pasta, loin of pork and nonnas cake, then had a special time eating what we had made accompanied with the wines from their own cellar.
