Azienda Agricola Albereto



The Azienda Agricola Albereto, a natural stone cottage, lies on a hill in the heart of Tuscany, surrounded by Cyprus trees, olive groves and vineyards. The beautiful panoramic view goes eastwards towards the Arno valley and the mountains of Pratomago.

The Albereto was first mentioned in the land register in 1427. Despite several renovations and enlargements the cottages original Tuscan architecture and rustic charm have been preserved.



Additionally, the Albereto is a working farm. We make a very tasty Extra vergine olive oil and grow fruits and vegetables.:

The surroundings are full of history. Greve in Chianti, a nearby town, was home to the well known explorers Amerigo Vespucci and Giovanni da Verazzano. Vinci and Caprese the birthplaces of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarotti, are a short drive away.



When in Albereto, you will find peace and tranquility in a very private atmosphere. Discover a lifestyle that should not be forgotten: a walk in the olive groves, a hike through the ancient forests, reading a good book, relaxation at the pool, or engaging in an interesting conversation in front of the open fire while enjoying a glass of superb Chianti - this and more is holiday at Albereto.



Our goal is to offer excellent quality, style and comfort at a fair price. Thus we have furnished our cottage Alberetino, and the two appartments Il Giardino and La Terrazza, in a classic style: Antique Tuscan furniture, open fireplaces, ancient carpets and beautiful tableware contribute to a pleasant stay. Where one expects modern amenities, however, for example in the bathroom or the kitchen, you will find yourself at home. Indeed, Albereto even features a carport.



You also will find the simple things which add up to an unforgettable stay. Upon arrival, you will find a bouquet of flowers in your lodging and will be greeted with a three course dinner complete with good Chianti wine.
