The centre of Castellina in Chianti is barely a kilometre distant and is glimpsed in the vista atop its hill. Here are shops, banks, restaurants, an outlet for hiring mountain bikes and a bus service to Siena.
Within 15kms, the medieval town of Radda in Chianti is ensconced between the valleys of Pesa and Arbia, it is 530m above sea level and affords some of the most wonderful views across the Tuscan wooded hillsides and vineyards. Dating back to the 14th Century, it is well preserved and the ancient walls that fortified this town can still be seen and admired.
About the same distance, another beautiful hilltop village, Panzano, is well worth a visit for its shops, restaurants, a popular Sunday market and a world famous butcher.
Just a little further afield is the town of Greve right in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region and is home to the largest wine fair in Chianti held every September. Wine tours and tasting experiences sweep as far as the eye can see. The landscapes surrounding Greve offer some quite literally breathtaking hikes through the Monte San Michele Nature Park, but also pleasant strolls for those a little less adventurous!
Florence can each be reached in about an hour whilst Siena is closer.
