Welcome to Le Terrazze del Chianti

Do you want to get away from your “city life”? Have you ever dreamed of a vacation in a quaint medieval village in the countryside of Chianti? Le Terrazze del Chianti – Bed & Breakfast  is the place to be. Tuscany is among those italian regions that contributed to make Italy famous, thanks also to its culinary tradition and its typical “Made in Italy”.

San Donato in Poggio is a medieval village that over the centuries has kept its original structure made of narrow streets built around the houses. Located in the county of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, its closeby major attractions areas like Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Poggibonsi, Greve, Castellina e Radda in Chianti, Certaldo and more destinations of the beautiful Chianti.

Le Terrazze del Chianti is an historic residence located in the “piazza” of the village, right across another historic building, il Palazzo Malaspina, home of several cultural events.

Our B&B has had its historical path from 300 until the end of the Second World War. The guest as soon as he enters our b & b receives through simple elements the historicity of the place. Since the historic competitions between the rich Florentine and Sienese families, the structure was the seat of the Lega del Chianti formed by all the villages of the valley in defense of the continuous attacks from the armies of the two capitals.

Today in our reception hall, it was assumed that it was the advising room, there is a fresco that has the style of the 14th century Sienese school. On the left there is St. John with the inscription on his left arm: the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world; in the center of a tabernacle the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus and in her hand has a Florentine lily; on the right the martyr Saint Catherine of Alexandria on the wheel with which she was slaughtered and finally a tub with the stick. During the fascist period our b & b became a Palazzo Pretorio, a managerial building for the fascist government present in all the small villages of Italy.

The slogan  we created to express the pleasure we put in our work is: At  “Le Terrazze Del Chianti” , a good bed  for a good company …….. and a good wine for a each table.
