  • 5.0/5 An amazing Tuscan experience! Typical rural estate in the countryside with all its colours and flavours, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves - this place was our dream come true! Can't wait to come back again!
  • 4.9/5 Aurora, in the heart of Chianti, is a perfect place to start visiting the whole area as well as Florence and Siena. We spent an unforgettable weekend in January (4 nights), the weather was quite cold but fair. The cottage is the area we liked more, a kind of huge studio with its own classic and elegant style. The villa was really comfortable and heating was ok. Highly recommended.
