Just Relax...
at the extraordinarily beautiful Villa Casalecchi

3 night - 5 night - 7 night hotel packages

If you don't want to join a specific activity at the Center, you can still enjoy all  the comforts and amenities of the 4 star Hotel Villa Casalecchi or it's two 3 star "dependences".  Just rent a car and book a room, then use the Center as your "base camp" for exploring The Chianti, or any other part of Tuscany for that matter.

Use the Chianti Travelers' Center as
a base for exploring Tuscany

The secondary highways and back roads will take you through some of the most spectacular countryside in all of Italy, and to towns and cities of astonishing beauty.  You can use all the resources on to plan your trip - or contact one of our Italy Travel Experts for hands-on help.

Villa Casalecchi is just 1 kilometer south of Castellina in Chianti which is in the heart of the Chianti wine district, but also very close to the center of Tuscany itself.  These are some of the nearby places you can visit while staying at the Villa.
