Why Aiolina?

Aiolina is a lovingly cared for farmhouse in the Chianti hills, offering six apartments available on a daily or weekly basis.

The old house looks out across olive groves and vineyards to distant hills - views that have not changed in centuries.

Who Are We?

Aiolina is run by a Tuscan American family.

Cristina is an American of Italian origin who has lived in Tuscany since 1994.

Her entire life has been dedicated to the hospitality industry, both in Tuscany and in San Francisco, California.

She is the person who greets you at your arrival, organizes all you need during your stay, teaches Tuscan cooking at its finest and may be seen playing with her goats more often than not.

Her husband, Massimiliano was born and raised in Siena. He is a chef in a high-end deli and catering service in Siena, but in his off time, his passions are his artiginal beer and his vegetable garden.

Their two daughters help out when needed.

Since 2001 they have been living in the village of Vagliagli which is where Aiolina is based, so they have very strong ties to the community.
