- The design of the property
The environment is familiar, but with attention to the smallest details. The walls and ceilings are decorated with frescoes from the 1800s and the rooms are furnished, where possible, with the original furniture of the villa that has been restored and restored.
At guests' disposal there is an equipped kitchen where you can prepare simple meals or taste specialties purchased in many shops of typical local products and a common room where breakfast is served in the morning.
The villa is surrounded by a garden where you can relax under the centuries-old holm oak, the true spirit of Villa Moris.
It is the ideal place from which to visit the most important Tuscan cities of art and to get lost among the hills and the Chianti villages. But you can also simply relax in the garden or in front of the fireplace in the common room or take walks in the endless white streets of the surroundings.
Children under the age of two stay free and have a camping cot available on request when booking.
Pets are welcome as long as they are educated to do the needs outside and not to get on the beds. On request, a kennel and bowls are available free of charge.
We live in the villa, so we will be at your disposal for any problem or question, but we will fully respect your privacy.
If you want we will be happy to show you the things to see in the surroundings, the best restaurants to eat, events not to be missed. In particular we will be happy to tell you the "minor" Chianti: there are many villages, monuments, museums unknown to mass tourism, but truly worthy of a visit.

Hey from Valentina
Welcoming guests is a bit like traveling: this is the spirit with which we make bed and breakfast.
For our part, we would like to introduce you to our territory: Florence and Siena are indescribable beauty and it would not take a lifetime to visit them, but Chianti is also dotted with jewels unknown to "mass tourism" that we feel are as exciting as the big ones city of art, precisely because little known. A slow and conscious tourism is, in our opinion, the true spirit with which a traveler comes into contact with the country he visits and with its inhabitants, as opposed to the "hit and run" coaches that clog the cities of art.
If you want we will be happy to tell you some of our "jewels"!
The first historical memory of the village dates back to 790: originally it was called Tabernulae, name derived from tabernas, the ancient taverns where travelers stopped for refreshment and for the change of horses along the road that led to the Val d'Elsa, where it crossed the Via Francigena.
In the twelfth century the village passed under the dominion of the Florentine Republic, but had no strategic function, so was not to be surrounded by walls, perhaps because protected by the nearby castles of San Casciano, Barberino, San Donato in Poggio and Tignano, which represented an important meeting point for trade.
The presence of the Franciscan convent of the Borghetto is a sign of the importance reached in this sense, considering that these complexes arose in the most populated and frequented places. In the nineteenth century the town grew further around its ancient nucleus and on 1 May 1893 it became an independent municipality, breaking away from the municipality of Barberino Val d'Elsa. Just this year a referendum was held which established the reunification of the two municipalities under the name "Barberino Tavarnelle".
Near Tavarnelle is the Pieve di S. Pietro in Bossolo, one of the oldest churches in the Val di Pesa.
A few kilometers from Tavarnelle is the abbey of San Michele Arcangelo a Passignano, a monastery of the Vallombrosian Congregation.
The monastery adopted the Vallombrosian rule already in the eleventh century by the work of San Giovanni Gualberto, who died here in 1073. More often destroyed and rebuilt, today it appears more like a castle than a monastic community.
The architectural complex still appears today inside the fifteenth-century curtain wall with a quadrangular plan with corner towers, but the neo-gothic additions made at the end of the 19th century when the monastic community was suppressed were transformed into a villa. The abbey church, with a Latin cross plan, was almost entirely rebuilt from the second half of the sixteenth century and internally frescoed by Domenico Cresti, called the Passignano and by Alessandro Allori.
Inside the abbey you can visit the wonderful Sala del Cenacolo, built by Domenico Ghirlandaio between 1440 and 1485 and recently restored.
