I learned, after booking, that there is and old and a new Panzano. We had, luckily, booked a room at Casa Volpini in old Panzano. Walkable, beautiful and full of wonderful restaurants, my one recommendation is to make reservations in advance. We begged our way into dinner at Dario Cecchini's amazing beef extravaganza, but we might have gone a bit hungry had we been unsuccessful.
Not too tourist damaged, and still a great location to get around, and lots of options for great dinners and entertainment without having to take the car (so you can have as much wine as you like). Dario's restaurant is very special and quite unique.
Everything was great apart from the appalling woman at Le Fonti winery who, when we asked to exchange a bottle of wine for olive oil, proceeded to rant and shout at us about bad manners and declared she ‘simply did not feel like doing it’ - we had spent £150 on wine the previous day but due to luggage restrictions couldn’t take any more bottles - and when we tried to explain, the screeching just increased (in front of other guests) so we left (followed by the still shouting woman), thoroughly bemused by the absurdity of her reaction and behaviour. To top it off we opened the wine when we got home and it was not the same as what we had tasted - instead it was green, bitter and heavy on the tannins, almost a different wine altogether. I hasten to add that everywhere else we went to in Panzano and Tuscany, and we traveled all over, we are were treated with the utmost courtesy and kindness. And the food and wine were fantastic!!!!
Best steak 🥩 house cecchini just opposite the hotel. Very good experience . Hence, Surprise me is the great scenery of Panzano, great hotel with good facilities , clean room, great breakfast and more ….
Panzano in Chianti is a quiet village between Greve in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti, along the road linking Fierenze and Siena. In Panzano you can admire one the the most important Romanesque churches of the whole Chianti region: the Pieve of St Leolino. Panzano has probable Roman origins but expanded later on. It was a Firidolfi's seigniory and the most populated center of the Val di Greve's League for centuries. It used to be one of the most fortified villafes around, you can still admire indeed the ruins of the castle, perhaps built for want of the Ricasoli Firidolfi family. The semi-rectangular city walls are almost totally intact, even undergoing partial demolitions, like in correspondence of the Church of St Maria Assunta. By the way this church, annexed to the castle, was rebuilt in the XIV century over the ruins of an older church. Inside the Church is a small Virgin with Infant Jesus (XIV century) attributed to Botticino; the right hand of the nave preserves a beautiful "Annunciazione" attributable to Michele di Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio. Of the two survived corner turrets, one is the current bell-tower while the south-eastern one still shows the corbels supporting the parapet. Some other edifices well keep the original medieval structures, like Casa Torre, rising in front of the quarterdeck, and someone else overlooking the only street inside the walls.
Panzano is a great little town. It is great because locals live there all year round and it is not heavily dominated by tourists. Shops and restaurants are very authentic to the town and you can experience a nice authentic Italian village stay. Panzano is known for the restaurant Dario, but it offers more than that. The whole village work for each other, you see each other products in each other’s shops which shows how warm and self sufficient the place is.
Great BnB with amazing staff and perfect location for visiting a great little Tuscan town. if you are looking to do some winery hopping In Chianti and/or visiting Dario Cecchini’s Officina della Bistecca, we highly recommend you stay at La Sosta. Lara who was very accommodating checking us in late in a Sunday evening was wonderful. And Viorica who made us breakfast each morning was an absolute delight. We will for certain stay at La Sosta the next trip to Chianti.
This little gem is located in the heart of Old Pansano, with nearby parking and an easy walk to restaurants. The room was nice, with a little Juliet balcony that overlooked the back garden. Our host was kind and helpful. Thanks to his recommendation, we "begged" our way into dinner at Dario Cecchini's (if you don't know who he is, look it up and reserve before you get there!). I wish we'd had more than one night at Casa Volpini.
We were in Panzano for the night to eat at Dario's. Solo Mia was a relatively short walk down the hill. The host is very kind and helpful. Solo Mia is good size, decorated nicely...not enough time to say all the good things about it. We would stay there again if we get to visit Panzano again.
The property was beautiful, our room was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Panzano is a lovely town to stay in. The view from the terrace and pool was incredible and we appreciated how helpful and friendly all of the staff were. Would highly recommend!
It’s everything you dream for in a Tuscan escape. Located right on the Panzano town square, La Pensione not only immerses you into the feel of a quant Italian town, but seems to capture every possible view of the surrounding hill country from the hotel’s windows.
Great location in the middle of the Chianti Region. Nice and quiet pool with great views over the hills covered with wine fields. Biggest plus was the very kind and caring staff! Definitely exceeded our expectations.
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 nights at Ville Le Barone, the property is beautiful, the restaurant offers delicious meals and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for a Chianti Tuscan holiday
It was zo beautiful. Really chill hotel with a lovely view. Location also 10/10. You can walk to so many wineries. The hotel Winery, Gagiole is also super nice! Highly recommend!!
Beautiful location in the Tuscany hills; spectacular view of Panzano and sunset over vineyards. I was also able to completely blackout my room (like complete darkness)
beautiful place with a beautiful view. we enjoyed our stay and the hosts were so kind and helpful. we recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Chianti region.
Amazing! Excellent service, very clean and respectful of all the guests. Great place to relax and enjoy your stay in Panzano. A lot of history as well
Breakfast was the best! Many home baked items and a lot of variety. Conveniently located near the famous Cecchini restaurant we ate at.
Modern, cozy and fresh apartment with a fantastic garden and view! Perfect location for walks and drives in the heart of Chianti.
