Chianni is a small town situated about 20 off the western coast of Italy that the height of Livorno (Leghorn), Tuscany. It has a full nice infrastructure with shops, bank, ATM, postoffice, restaurants  and bars ( the bars in Chianni offer free wifi!), butcher shop, bakery, hairdressers, Boutiques and so on - and there is a busline reaching it too (here) .
It isn't very crowded, that's why one may say, it is a nice quiet area, ideal for your recovery and relax.

The position of Chianni allows exursions to practically all famous sites  in the area with one to one and a half hour by car, therefore it is very convenient to be chosen as a base. But more than that it offers a beautiful nature and a still originally kept nice aspect of a typical tuscan hillside village giving you the great look and feel of Tuscany.
Chianni is composed of the main town called Chianni, there is Rivalto, situated higher than Chianni town , Garetto and Croce del Magno.

The neighboring towns are Casciana Terme, Terricciola, Lajatico (with its famous singer Andrea Bocelli) and across the hills Castellina Marittima. Santa Luce and Riparbella.

There are a few sight seeings at Chianni itself: the lately discovered medieval mills,  some  hiking trails across the forests and lots of wonderful nature.

Once you choose to have dinner out, you will notice the difference to other places: your wallet is NOT going to cry when the bill comes!

The closer area offers lots of discovery - Terricciola is famous for its wines - get a tasting!  (ask Omar about it!) Many great restaurants offer extremely good food - you can easily spend two weeks eating out without having to visit one place twice!
Excellent mountain biking possibilities attract many people form outside - and again, there are beautiful views everywhere!
