Santa Maria is located in the heart of the Chianti region. We are very conveniently placed on the Chianti road which links Florence to Siena. To be more accurate we lie in the middle of two of Chianti’s much loved towns, Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti. We recommend that you come with your car or hire a car at the airport. This will enable you to see all the surrounding towns such as Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Colle Val d’Elsa, San Gimignano, Volterra and of course Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti. If you decide not to drive and would prefer to spend your time relaxing at the borgo, we will be happy to pick you up from Panzano in Chianti (there is a bus that leaves from the train station in Florence station to Panzano).  If you are arriving at Florence airport, we recommend you taking a taxi to get to the station in Florence.  If arriving at Pisa airport, we recommend taking the Terravision bus ( If you wish, you can buy the ticket online. For an additional cost, we can also organise a transfer from either Florence or Pisa airport.
