Casa Lucia – Panzano in Chianti

{Rooms with views}: Owner Janine Loohuis has a special eye for details. Fashion and textile designer, Holland born Janine is also a pottery maker and decorator. Her home and bed&breakfast is located in Panzano - halfway between Florence and Siena, right in the heart of Chianti, in Tuscany. A Medieval centro storico, Panzano hosts a Sunday Market  and  a monthly one (the first Sunday of every  month) in which   Arts & Crafts, Antiques and local food produce are sold.

In the  romantic garden,  antique roses, olive trees and ancient vineyards.
