Carfini di Sopra is located on the first floor of typical Tuscan stone farm building located on the edge of the Chianti. Poggibonsi is within easy reach and Castellina in Chianti is a short distance away.
The entrance to the villa is up some external Travertine stairs which lead onto a small terrace. Off this is the villa entrance and a small office which the owners use. Entering the villa there is an open plan living area. In one corner is a well equipped kitchen which includes gas hobs, a small fridge with internal freezer compartment, and an oven. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with four chairs. Against one wall is a triple sofa. The room is completed by satellite TV.
A terracotta arch leads off the back of the lounge into a small hall which provides access to a bathroom with a shower and washing machine. From the hall there is a door to the first of the two double bedrooms. This is a large spacious room, simply furnished with a large wardrobe that has some drawers and a double iron bed. The window looks out over the some farm equipment in the neighbouring yard and then onto the vineyards beyond.
The second double bedroom is accessed directly from the living area. It is also a large, bright room, simply furnished. It has an iron double bed and large wardrobe. The window which is south facing looks out to the villa terrace, then onto the passing road and the vineyards on the other side. There is an en-suite bathroom with shower.
Carfini di Sopra has a pretty private outside eating area which can be seen from the other buildings on the property. It is near the road that passes the property, so it is possible to see and hear passing cars on the road below.
The double bedrooms cannot be made into twins, however should a twin room be required an extra bed can be placed. Please indicate if you require this when booking.

There is air conditioning paid as used.

Pros Het huis had alles wat we nodig hadden. Airco, twee goede bedden, horren en schone toiletten. Het zwembad is heerlijk (loopt af, dus voor kinderen van alle lft prima) en bijna een privébad. Het ligt centraal om allerlei plaatsen te bezoeken en je kunt er heerlijk hardlopen (kuitenbijters van 15%). Mooi uitzicht! Heerlijke week gehad!
Cons muggen.....Als de zon ondergaat is er een moment op de dag dat je even wordt lek geprikt. Daarna zijn ze weer verdwenen en is het aangenaam. Zorg voor muggenspul en houdt de deur op die momenten dicht. We zaten op 1 hoog, maar wij vonden dat niet bezwaarlijk. Het terrasje is piepklein, maar wij hadden niet meer nodig.
Local attractions restaurantje op 500 meter links af. Het lijkt op een nachtclub, maar de mixed grill is SUPER en de pizza's ook. Niet duur. We hebben Castellina in Chianti bezocht, van Florance genoten,

Pros * die Sauberkeit der Wohnung
* die beiden Bäder
* der Pool und die Poolanlage waren sehr sauber und gepflegt
* die Fliegennetze an den Fenstern
* das Fliegennetz um die Stizgruppe im Freien, aber leider kamen die Stechmücken trotzdem rein
Cons Abends war es leider nicht möglich sich im Freien aufzuhalten, da es sehr viele Stechmücken gab. Selbst untertags waren am Pool sehr viele Stechmücken. Nachts war ständig über Stunden Hundegebell zu hören von ca. 20 Hunden. Der Vermieter hat dieses Problem auch bestätigt und uns geraten nachts die Fenster zu schließen und die Klimaanlage zu nutzen, was uns aber zu kalt war.

Pros Very peaceful and Manager was very helpful where possible
Cons The water pressure was very low so showering was not very good. The kitchen although modern had minimal cooking essentials such as no bread board.
Local attractions There is a great restaurant nearby La Strolla though in advertising it indicates 300 metres away more like 600 metres. Lovely villages 20 to 30 kms away and scenery is awesome though I suggest tours rather than driving yourself around though you need car to get you in and out of town etc. Taxis and hire cars very limited in nearby town Poggibonsi.

Pros Position in Tuscany - between Florence, Siena & San Gimignano. Close to motorway.
Pool area - we had almost exclusive use during our stay.
Typical Tuscan property in lovely setting.
Easy to find on good roads. Easy parking.
Good sized rooms, en-suite. Wi-Fi very handy.
Owner very friendly and helpful. When we mentioned the lack of dvd player as mentioned on the website, he returned with a brand new Sony one 30 minutes later.
Carfini is ideal for adults or families with older children.
Local attractions Castellini in Chianti - 20 minutes drive away. Lovely setting, views and several good restaurants. San Gimignano - 45 minutes drive away. Lovely walled town with lots of restaurants. Monteriggioni - 20 minutes drive away. Beautiful setting, very peaceful.

Pros The location of the villa was excellent for accessing many of the nearby towns and villages. Also good for accessing the train station for visiting Florence. The pool was a very good size and even when sharing with other guests never got too busy.
Cons The sofa in the living area of the villa was not very comfortable nor did it seat 4. It therefore meant in the evening we had to use the kitchen table chairs to sit on as well as the sofa. Also the outside space (given we had the upstairs accommodation) was very small and located in a very public area.
Local attractions The local village of castellina in chianti is a beautiful little village with the most amazing ice cream. Monteriggioni was also beautiful and the favourite pizza we eat all holiday and of course most favourite of all is Siena. A place we never tire of visiting.

Pros Nous avons aimé la localisation : situé dans le bas du Chianti, proche de Colle et San Geminiano, à 35mn de Sienne, 45mm de Florence, 1h30 d'Arezzo...
Cons 1- Hors de la propriété, il y a un chenil (c.à.d une quinzaine de chiens enfermés), on le les voit jamais, mais on les entends bien. En journée, pas de problème, mais la nuit, lorsqu'on ouvre les fenêtres pour rafraichir, c'est le concert assuré, jusqu'à tôt le matin. Gênant lorsqu'on veut s'endormir ou se rendormir. 2- Il y aurait besoin d'un ventilateur dans chaque chambre (ce qui rendrait moins nécessaire l'ouverture des fenêtres toute la nuit).
