Volpaia is an ideal base for your holiday in Chianti. It has been restored in a very restrained manner and retains its original and beautiful architectural style. Volpaia is centrally located between Florence and Sienna, with the Chianti castles route beginning nearby. The village is very tranquil, with almost no cars in the inner area (or anywhere else), and is high up so that it is cool in mid-summer. Volpaia nevertheless offers a choice of three restaurants all within two minutes walk of Il Cassero, and there is a small grocery shop. There is good and inexpensive eating at Il Ristoro di Lucarelli a short drive away. The nearest big supermarket is in Greve in Chianti, and there are numerous restaurants in Greve and Panzano and the surrounding countryside. Very good wine is readily available from Il Castello di Volpaia winery which is the main commercial activity here.
Minimum stay 2 nights. Included in the price: electricity, gas for cooking, towels, bed linen (changed once per week), hot and cold water.
Not included in the price: Heating, if needed, costs 2 euros per cu. m of gas used.

How to get to Volpaia
From Florence, the easiest route, although not the shortest, is to take the SS 222 Chiantigiana through Greve and Panzano, and a few km after Panzano, turn off to the left to Lucarelli in the direction of Radda in Chianti. Just before reaching Radda, turn left again where the signpost indicates Volpaia. The shorter route is a dirt road accessed from Panzano. Once you are settled in at Volpaia, this is the road to use when you go shopping in Panzano or Greve.
From Rome, you can exit the autostrada A1 at Incisa (Montevarchi) and drive towards Radda and Castellina in Chianti. Just after Villa and before Radda, you turn right at the signpost for Volpaia.
