Relais Riserva di Fizzano is owned by the Rocca delle Macìe winery, whose vineyards extend over six estates planted to 600ha in the Chianti Classico zone. The most characteristic of these estates is Fizzano, where its country lodging ‘Relais’ built around a medieval village offers visitors the opportunity to spend a relaxing few days in the very heart of the Chianti Classico area, surrounded by an unforgettable panorama of rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves with a view to the San Gimignano towers. Situated at the summit of a gently sloping hill at an altitude of about 300m, close to the Via Francigena between Siena and Florence, and near San Gimignano and Volterra, the farmhouse complex consists of six buildings. These include 20 self-contained apartments (two or three rooms), decorated with rustic charm, which are surrounded by small gardens and a pool. The restaurant inside the complex offers good authentic Tuscan cuisine. Guests are offered a free tour and tasting at Rocca delle Macie winery and well as a visit to their olive press.

Useful information: Two-room apartment for 2 people: €100-€185 per night. Open all year round.
