Fico is a pretty little terraced cottage with a mezzanine floor. The villa is located to the left of the pool and has a wonderful furnished terrace shaded by grape vines. The terrace is lovely and private although it overlooks the pool below.
Entering the villa there is the large living area with warm terracotta floors and a high ceiling of traditional wooden beams. This large spacious and airy room has a kitchen to the far end. It's fully equipped with gas hobs, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with small freezer. In front of the kitchen there is a dining table that seats up to 8 people. Also in this living area is a comfortable double sofa and an armchair and a working fireplace.
To one side of the kitchen there is a double bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom is small but with a high ceiling with wooden beams which make it feel airy and spacious. It is graced with a large window that provides the room with plenty of light. In the room is a built in wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The bathroom is with a tub and has a handheld shower with two fittings, high and low, so good also for showering.

From the large living area there are terracotta stairs with an open cast iron railing that go up to the mezzanine floor above the kitchen area. Here there is a comfortable lounge with two armchairs and a double sofa. There is a TV with satellite and a european DVD player.
Off this room there are two bathrooms each with a shower. Going up some stairs there is a small corridor with access to the upper gardens. Off this there are two bedrooms that can be set up as twins or doubles. Both rooms have lovely large windows providing them with lots of light. Each has a wardrobe and small chest of drawers. The rooms are not large but are comfortable.


Please specify how you would like the bedrooms made up when booking.

Location: Casa Forcheri

Casa Forcheri is a lovely little hamlet with a pretty garden filled with colourful flowers and plants. The peaceful views from the hamlet over the Chianti are wonderful as they cross the rolling vine covered hills onto the small villages that dot the countryside.

The pool is located in a sunny area near the houses. It is surrounded by a paved area with sun-beds and excellent views of the countryside. It's an ideal position to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Tuscany.

There are 3 little houses rented in Casa Forcheri plus the owner's villa. Two of the apartments are in the main building with the owner's villa while the third is a pretty little cottage.

Pros Almost everything
Cons Very hard to locate the address upon arriving in the first time. There is a lack of light in the house.We needed to ask them to solve the Wifi issue which was hardly working .The range of channels in the T.V for english speakers is poor.
Local attractions There are plenty of outstanding restaurants in Rada and its surroundings. The best ones we ate at are: La Botte di Bacco Osteria Le Panzanelle
