The Art is everywhere in Italy in a natural way, left there by our ancestors to make it appreciated and the attentive and expert eye quickly absorbs it. So aware of having made this choice of travel you will find yourself to travel routes to discover and remember.

Luckily our B&B has had its history 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 Art not selled at an auction of Christie’s, but received from our masters and left to posterity, you will see it in our reception hall, the advice room of the Lega del Chianti .In fact there is a fresco that has the style of the 14th century Sienese school. On the left of fresco 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.
