Colto dei Pallanti is farmhouse completely rebuilt situated in a beautiful position in the hills surrounding Radda in Chianti, south facing and renowned for its magnificent views. Colto dei Pallanti has all modern conveniences including a heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna set in its beautiful gardens.

Cities such as Florence (within 1 hour), Siena (within 40 mins) and Pisa (within 1.5 hours) are filled with glorious architecture and incomparable museums, many guests are overwhelmed by the extraordinary richness of the region’s cultural heritage which they explore, followed by a relaxing dip in the pool in the warm Tuscany sun.


The farmhouse has been faithfully restored, respecting the ancient character of the original farmhouse, but at the same time adding to the quality and comfort with new furnishings and equipment such as a still or sparkling chilled water purifier.


An example of this successful combination of old and new is the very well-equipped kitchette found in the garden, which opens to a terrace, ideal for “al fresco” dining from the wood burning Barbeque, while enjoying breathtaking landscapes and by night enjoying the illuminated gardens.

Within the large and totally fenced gardens and raised behind the house in a superb position there is a beautiful, heated swimming pool. The area surrounding the pool is furnished with sun lays and a covered pergola with a kitchette offering a fridge and preparation area, raised further still above the pool area is sun terrace furnished with sun lays and relaxing chairs. There are mountain bikes and covered parking on the property.

The entrance brings you into the living area with large plasma TV Sat, DVD and CD player. To the left is an ample dining table for six people and through the archway the kitchen with gas hobs, electric oven, microwave and dishwasher. A large window provides a fitting backdrop for this well decorated room, under the stairs is the ADSL Internet connection and fax machine. A computer is also available.


Passing the stairs to the corridor there is a laundry/ironing room with washer and dryer. The corridor leads to a twin bedroom with patio doors that open onto the garden, there is a walk in wardrobe and a bathroom en suite with bath tub and separate shower box, the chest of draws supports the plasma TV with Sat connection.

Up the terracotta stairs and to the left is the main bathroom, which has a corner whirlpool bath, and separate shower box, across the corridor is a small room fitted with a full-length sunray lamp. Ahead is are two bedrooms, the larger bedroom has en suite facilities including a bathtub and separate shower box, there is plenty of wardrobe space and a plasma TV Sat fitted.



The smaller double bedroom has great views from the window and a plasma TV Sat, a door to the left takes you into the relax area. There is a hot tub, a sauna and an external hot shower to leave you feeling fully relaxed, from here you can pass directly into the garden.




On your arrival the owner will supply a rich buffet of local products which includes cured meats, cheeses, seasonal fruit, wine and sweets.



NOTE: A normal use of electric 250kWh of power is included in the rental price, if more power is consumed during your stay the owner reserves the right to charge consumption at supply  rates, approx 0.35 Euro per kWh.

Pros We loved its privacy, the architecture, the comprehensive kit supplied, the gardens, the pool, the views. Everything. All of us just loved it. Paula was sweet and so helpful.
Cons We only booked one week, should have been longer. Would have been to know that pool towels were supplied. Also the food supplied on arrival was fantastic but because we didn't know what was being supplied we had also bought enough for dinner. These are NOT complaints, but observations.
Local attractions We went to Florence, Pisa and Siena and loved them. The winery up the road was great. We didn't eat out much as we used the bbq a lot.

Pros The gardens were very spacious and beautifully kept, the bathrooms upstairs were very large and well appointed.
Cons Bedroom downstairs the shower cubicle was very small, and we thought having to pay more electricity was a surprise, as we did not use the sauna the hot tub or the central heating which in your description is what the extra electricity is for.
Local attractions We had a family wedding at Castle de Meleto and it was fabulous. We loved rhadda and it's shops.

Pros beautiful setting; tranquility; lovely pool; huge grounds; countless 'little' touches (e.g. watering the dirt road outside to keep dust down); great covered eating area; very pleasant upper sun terrace; water cooler (still and fizzy!); excellent kitchen; etc etc etc
a fantastic food welcome - meats, cheeses, salad, fruit...
but, even more important - paula! super helpful, highly attentive and very available. a huge thank you!
Cons struggled a bit with the barbecue - i suspect though this was probably a combination of my limitations and some dodgy charcoal!
Local attractions donica (arranged by paula) - who cooked a delightful meal for us! casa porciatti (radda) - great shop for all sorts of lovely food (and on the spot panini) volpaia - great wine, excellent wine tasting, really fiendly staff panzano - dario the butcher (of course!) & versoxverso for beautiful leather

Pros Herrliche ruhige Lage, sehr sauber, super nette Vermieter die uns ein wirklich leckeres Büffet hergerichtet hatten. Man hatte alles vor Ort was man so braucht, Geschirrspültabs, Waschmaschinentabs, Toilettenpapier , Gewürze, man brauchte eigentlich nichts mitzubringen.
Local attractions Florenz war sehr schön, ebenso Siena. Radda ist ein kleiner süßer Ort, aber man ist halt schnell durchgelaufen. Dort gibt es eine kleine Pizzaria mit sehr leckerer, preiswerter Riesenpizza. Zu empfehlen ist auch ein kleines Restaurant Osteria in der Nähe.

Pros Prachtige ligging met een subliem uitzicht. Het huis was van alle gemakken voorzien. Een mooi verwarmd zwembad met ligweide. De tuin is groot en prachtig onderhouden. We hebben gebruik gemaakt van de beschikbare mountainbikes. Er komt overigens wel het nodige steile klimwerk bij kijken in de omgeving.
De tuinzit met buitenkeuken hebben we vanwege het weer helaas niet gebruikt.
De keuken in huis is van alle gemakken voorzien. Het zitgedeelte is aan de kleine kant, 5 personen, maar erg gezellig.
De slaapkamers zijn voorzien van t.v. en radio en hebben een eigen badkamer, wat erg prettig is,
Voor een babystoel en bedje was keurig gezorgd.
De jacuzzi en sauna zijn super, vooral bij het wat koude weer dat wij hadden. Met name 's avonds moest, midden mei, de kachel nog aan.
De ontvangst door Paola was super. Ze had allerlei heerlijke dingen bereid, zodat we bij aankomst niet meer hoefden te koken. Paola komt elke dag het zwembad onderhouden en het vuilnis ophalen. Dit heb je nauwelijks in de gaten omdat ze je privacy volledig respecteert.
Cons De matrassen werden als hard ervaren. Rekening houden met een wisselvallige internet ontvangst. Deze valt af en toe weg en is zeer traag. Verder alleen maar lovende woorden.
Local attractions We hebben vooral thuis gegeten. Één keer in de pizzeria aan de hoofdstraat in Radda gegeten. Eenvoudig maar lekkere tweepersoons pizza's. Steden als Sienna en Florence bezocht. Dit is natuurlijk verplichte kost. Verder genoten van de prachtige natuur.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Wir haben die Highlights der Umgebung besichtigt (Siena, Pisa, Florenz, Volterra) und einige Weingüter und natürlich haben wir viel eingekauft!
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Perfekt! Paola war toll und der Empfang mit den kulinarischen Köstlichkeiten hat uns da Ankommen gleich versüßt! Das Wetter hätte etwas schöner sein können denn dann hätten wir den traumhaften Pool besser ausnützen können.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Tja, die kleinen Skorpione im Garten waren schon eine Überraschung! Aber es ist nichts passiert und daher nicht schlimm.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Uns war nicht bewußt, dass Radda so hoch liegt und es morgens und abends eher frisch sein kann. Vielleicht könnte man dies für zukünftige Urlauber bei der Beschreibung erwähnen.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Every day at Colto dei pallanti, dining in the loggia by the tuscan moon and gazing across the vineyards to the castello.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Clean, welcoming, beautiful and peaceful.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? A scorpion in the shower which we were unsure how dangerous it was.
The room made up for the adults was two single beds pushed together but made individually downstairs. We just moved upstairs to the double and sent the kids downstairs.
Do you have any other comments?
