Calafralina is a pretty Tuscan villa located in the heart of the Chianti halfway between Castellina in Chianti and Radda in Chianti. It is divided into several cottages around a central communal building.
Surrounding the little Tuscan cottages is a large garden simply maintained with an orchard, olive grove and some large trees. To one side of a large grassy area is a pool overlooking stunning views. The pool is fenced with a modest fence.
The main living area is a large stone building with huge glass windows and doors on three sides making it an incredibly bright room and providing it with the effect of being outside amongst the trees that surround it. Outside, shaded by the trees is a wooden table with benches to eat al fresco if desired.
Inside is paved with traditional terracotta tiles and has a high pitched roof with wooden beams and terracotta tiles. To one side is a large modern angle sofa with a second two seater sofa.
In the centre of this light filled room is an iron dining table with glass top, surrounded by cushioned iron chairs. To one side is a fireplace which also acts as a barbeque.
To the back of the room is the small kitchen. It's fully equipped with gas hobs, oven, dishwasher and has two fridges with separate freezers. Behind this is the laundry room.
The first of the other three buildings that make up the property is attached to the back of the communal building. It's composed of a spacious bedroom with a high ceiling. The room is with an iron double bed which can be divided into two singles. To one side of the room is a large wardrobe and a couple of armchairs. En-suite is a small bathroom with shower.
The second cottage is approximately 30metres away from the communal area, and a few steps away from the pool. It's a typical Tuscan stone cottage. It is not overly bright but is a lovely romantic cottage. There is a pretty, double iron bed, large wardrobe and an armchair. En-suite is a small bathroom with open shower.
The last three bedrooms are all part of a single building, next to the communal area. The building is on a sloped part of the land and has a large terrace above it, accessible from the higher part of the slope.
The bedrooms are all independently accessed from the garden, onto which a glass door opens. There are no other windows in the rooms. Each has a simple en-suite bathroom with shower. Each room is connected to fresh air ventilation system.

These modern three bedrooms are identically furnished with a double bed, armchair and a writing desk with chair. They all have a built-in wardrobe.
Note this Tuscan villa is recommended for the warmer months as there is  no direct access to it from the bedrooms without crossing the garden.
The owner has a private holiday villa on the property, to the back of  Calafralina, he rarely uses his villa.
The cottage with the 5th bedroom is not indicated in the floor plans

Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.
Availability in this villa needs to be checked with the owner before a booking can be confirmed.

Pool Info

From this area of the property there are fantastic views over the hedge which borders the grounds. The pool itself is fenced with a temporary structure making it safe for when children are present in the group or if pets are travelling.

Pros Le calme est magnifique. Les chambres et lits tres confortable. Le salon superbe, aussi le barbecue et la piscine. Stefano est tres gentil et il nous a aide beaucoup chaque jour. Le meme avec Monica mais on l'a vu seulement on arrivant et quand nous sommes partis.
Le parc et le jardin nous ont beaucoup plait et aussi les chiens.
Cons C'est dommage que la cuisine est si petite. Pour preparer tous les repas pour 10 personne etait tres difficile. Aussi il n'y a pas des toilettes dans le batiment principal donc il fallait toujours rejoindre nos chambres pour chercher la salle de bains. C'etait particulierement difficile pour le couple restant dans la cabine dans le jardin. Il faut avertir le proprieter qu'il y a besoin des lumieres le long de la pente entre le salon et les chambres. C'est dangereux pendant la soirée ou on peut rien voir et quelqu'un a tombe du mur pendant notre sejour.
Local attractions Pour la plus part on a mange au villa.

Pros The location is stunning. Set in the Tuscan Hills and the site containing a small vineyard together with olive, lemon and fig trees, it was a delight. I was slightly concerned the web site photos may be a little out of date and possibly even "guilding the lily" but am very pleased to say the reality even exceeded our expectations. The people in shops and restaurants in Radda could not have been more helpful and tolerated me murdering their beautiful language. Overall the holiday was fabulous. Great weather, great company and overall the villa complex is stunning.
Cons The two bedrooms, one adjoining the main building together with the small chalet-type room down close to the pool. need some air-conditioning. Otherwise, outstanding.
Local attractions Siena and San Gimignano are a must. We dined in two restaurants in Radda. Both were wonderful.

Pros Wir (10 Personen) waren von dem erstern bis zum Letzten Tag sehr zufrieden.
Der Gärtner war sehr bemüht bei der Pflege von Garten und Pool.
Ein Kompliment an die "Putzengeln". Wir werden sicher wieder dieses Haus in idyllischer Lage mal buchen.

Pros Sehr schönes Anwesen, riesiger gepflegter Garten, fantastischer Panoramablick, schöner sauberer Pool, schöne Einrichtung, sehr romantisches Poolcottage.
Die Kritikpunkte verblassen bei dem hervorragenden Gesamteindruck.
Cons Auf Grund des großen Gartens war auch immer der freundliche Gärtner auf dem Grundstück tätig, teilweise mit lauten Geräten, was manchmal etwas lästig war. Der ehemalige Durchgang zwischen zwei Zimmer waren nur durch zwei Spiegel zugebaut, dadurch hörte man jedes Geräusch aus dem jeweils anderen Raum. Das Grundstück war nicht vollständig eingezäunt, dadurch entkam unser angemeldeter Hund zwei Mal auf das Nachbargrundstück, was zu größerer Kritik an uns führte. Wenn ein Hund erlaubt ist, sollte das Grundstück dafür auch vorbereitet sein.
Local attractions "La Perla del Pallazo" in Radda Siena, San Gimigagno Der "Calcio storico" in Florenz, ein historisches Fussballspiel.
