Excellent location near Florence and Greve in ChitPosted Jun 22, 2016
Pros: A lovely glass of wine on our arrival! Helpful staff. Swimming pool Location
Cons: Maybe an iron in the room.
Location: Easy drive to nearby villages. Bus to Florence only half an hour.
We stayed at La Presura for four nights in June. Room was spacious with good amenities- hair dryer but no iron in room. There is a bust top 200 metres down the road where you can catch a bus into Florence which is much easier than driving a car. The pool area is very pleasant and we went for a walk down to the lake area. Supermarkets within ten minute drive.

Tuscan AccessPosted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: It's locale in the Tuscan countryside was perfect. Beautiful rolling hills all around and walking trails onsite.
Cons: The kitchen items were a bit different from our kitchen and that of our friends. Between the two we had enough for our needs but glad we had both.
Location: We road tripped to Lucca, Volterra, Castle Ricosoli, Siena, and everywhere in between. Great location. And Florence was a half hour away!
We road tripped out of this farmhouse for three days. Perfect location. The nearby restaurants suggested to us were amazing. The kitchen facilities allowed us to have breakfast and drinks and antipasto out on the patio. The pool is very nice and a great option for a day of total relaxation.

Breathtaking panoramic viewsPosted May 31, 2015 on Hotels
Great farm stay in the heart of Chianti. Breathtaking, panoramic views over the countryside with relaxing pool and BBQ area to watch the sun set whilst consuming copious amounts of the lovely wine produced on site. Spacious, clean self catered apartments, really nice local restaurants just down the road and great location for access to the whole region (with car). Would not change a thing and definitely recommend!

Great location and hospitalityPosted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: The location, rusticness and the setting.
Location: Florence is only 30 min away by bus and saves the hassle of parking. A good day trip can explore the highlights of Chianti - Castellina, Greve, Radda.
A great location with a bus stop 200 m down the road for catching the bus to Florence (30 min), with regular buses. A great location for exploring the Chianti region too and all its hill top villages, castles and vineyards. La Presura is in a great setting amongst the vineyards and olive groves. There are four short walks through the property too. Our host put on a great wine tour and tasting for us one evening which is thoroughly recommended, explaining the history of La Presura and the wine making process.

A Pleasant Stay, but ....Posted Oct 30, 2014 on Hotels
We spent 8 days here in October 2014. The location was ideal for visiting Chianti and only 30 minutes drive from Florence. We had a garden room for two with beautiful views across the hills. There were two sunbeds in our garden, but they were removed before the end of our stay. The pool was closed by the 22nd. The gentleman who gave us our key and showed us to our room was not particularly friendly. The accommodation was spacious and the kitchen area adequate. The shower cubicle was very small and the temperature of the water erratic. The bed was very hard, but we found two blankets to put underneath us which helped. The energy-saving light bulbs were difficult to read by. The Wi-Fi and the TV worked well. The place is described as "rustic" and it certainly was! The room wasn't cleaned once during our 8 days. (If you want your linen changed there's a charge of €3 per person) Despite these few niggles we enjoyed our visit to Chianti and the location of La Presura is superb. Would we go back? No, because of the bed and the shower. We highly recommend the restaurant San Martino about two miles north on the road to Grassina.

Ble lurt av tidligere omtalerPosted Oct 6, 2014 on Hotels
Jeg om min kone valgte å bestille rom på La Presura pga. av tidligere rosende omtaler samt beliggenhet i forhold rundturer i Toscana. Først av alt fikk vi et rom rett mot veien ved siden av med mye trafikkstøy. Vi fikk imidlertid etter litt diskusjon et nytt rom med bede beliggenhet. Romservicen var elendig eller rettere sagt fraværende. De tre dagene vi bodde på La Presura ble rommet ikke ryddet, søppel ikke tømt og vi fikk ikke skiftet håndklær. Det var også vond lukt på rommet og masse fluer som ramlet ned i sengen. Sengen var ellers vond å sove i - altfor myk og den gynget hele tiden med to personer i sengen. I følge beskrivelsen var det 2-3 restauranter i nærheten. Det viste seg at de lå 2-3 km unna og livsfarlig å gå til om kvelden i mørket på en hovedvei ute veiskulder og lys og med stor trafikk. Personalet var for øvrig lite servicevennlig og vi fikk hele tiden følelse av at de bare var lei av alt som heter turister. Oppsummert kan vi si at svært lite stemte med beskrivelsen fra La Presura. Det finnes så mange andre hyggelige steder i Toscana, så hold dere unna La Presura!!
