Casafoso is a lovely, traditional Tuscan villa within walking distance to Radda in Chianti. It's a cute little cottage on two floors located on a larger property, next to the owner's villa.
The pool is to the other side of the owner's villa and a short walk through the pretty garden away from Casafoso. Outside the villa is a stone paved terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs to dine al fresco. It is shaded by the nearby trees, although does have sun part of the day.
Inside is an open plan room over two floors. The lower level has a comfortable double sofa to one side, while the wooden dining table is in one corner with a wooden bench along the wall and three chairs. The entire room is paved with the traditional terracotta.
The kitchen unit is along the wall below the stairs. It is simply equipped and includes an oven, gas hobs and a small fridge with tiny internal ice box. Next to this is a fireplace, which is ideal for the cooler nights. To the back of the room is a small bathroom which has an open shower with curtain.
The sleeping area is on the mezzanine floor on the upper level. It has a beautiful iron double bed, a two seater sofa and a large wardrobe. The room has the typical Tuscan villa feature of a ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta Tiles.
Note that there is no heating in the villa.
The owners may make occasional use of the pool.
The last weekend of August there is a village festival which has live music that can be heard at the villa.

Pros Ten eerste de vriendelijke ontvangst door de eigenaar, wat een fijn welkom! Volledige privacy in de wetenschap dat er altijd iemand was om vragen te beantwoorden. Een heerlijk huis voor twee met gebruik van het prachtige zwembad. Wij hebben de gehele week niemand op of rond het zwembad gezien, pure luxe dus om hier samen gebruik van te mogen makken. Verder de perfecte ligging dicht bij het knusse Radda, wel een stevig wandeling de heuvel op maar zeker goed te doen. Kortom een heerlijke plek voor als je van rust houdt en kan genieten van alle Toscaanse heerlijkheden, inclusief de verse abrikozen die in de tuin voor het plukken hangen!
Local attractions La Botte di Bacco, een knus restaurant met heerlijke gerechten en een attente bediening. Aanrader, wel reserveren. La Loggia del Chianti, bovenaan het klimmetje naar Radda. Vriendelijke eigenaar, lekkere pure gerechten en zeer betaalbaar. Ristorante Podere Le Vigne. Prachtige stek net buiten het dorp, voor het echte Toscaanse gevoel. Wel reserveren. Bar Sandy, voor een lekker ijsje. Heerlijk!

Pros - La piscine : grande, toujours impeccable et si les propriétaires sont susceptibles de l'utiliser, nous ne les avons cependant jamais vus. Un rêve !
- La vue de la terrasse et de la piscine
- Le wifi gratuit non prévu mais disponible dans la maison (qualité médiocre mais suffisante pour surfer et lire ses mails)
- Accueil chaleureux et discrétion tout au long du séjour de la part des propriétaires (ne parlent que l'italien mais on arrive toujours à se comprendre avec de la bonne volonté). Notez que leur fils qui possède un bon niveau de français est joignable et se déplace si nécessaire. Idem pour leur fille.
- Sentiment de sécurité
- Le frigo, pas si petit que ça !
- Les propriétaires régleront vos moindres soucis rapidement.
- Proximité village (tout à pied)
- Qualité/prix
- Très bon accueil réservé à notre chienne
Cons Dans l'ordre décroissant d'importance : - La salle de bain minuscule qu'il y a pourtant moyen d'adapter (supprimer le bidet, la porte de la douche pour agrandir la pièce) - Le manque de capacité d'eau chaude du boiler pour deux personnes ! Si vous faites la vaisselle en plus, n'espérez pas avoir une douche chaude... Cela demande donc une certaine organisation. - Le centre sportif à 100 m à vol d'oiseau qui a parfois des activités bruyantes et tardives (match de foot jusqu'à 23.15 h). Aucune photo sur le site internet ne montre le terrain de sport à proximité. - Pas d'autre choix que de placer les produits d'hygiène et de soins sur la cheminée dans le salon - Peu d'armoires de stockage au rez-de-chaussée mais trop d'ustensiles de cuisine inutiles - Cuisine peu pratique (le seul plan de travail est sous l'escalier) - Le lit qui pourrait paraître un peu trop mou à certaines personnes (le double sommier est constitué de ressorts grillagés et non pas de lattes)
Local attractions Restaurant Le Vigne (sur la terrasse) : accueil, vue et nourriture Le COOP qui vous permet de faire vos courses à prix réduits Pour les produits locaux, de délicieuses glaces chez Sandy et pour l'épicerie, Casa Pociatti en face.

The owner thanks you for your feedback. They will certainly take into account how best to organise the space in the bathroom. Regarding the sports centre, the only time the facilities are used is for the football tournament that runs for 3/4 weeks a year. There is also a table in the kitchen which can also be used for food preparation.

Pros Sehr freundliche Vermieter, schöne Lage, sehr gepflegte Außenanlagen, Blick über Olivenhaine und Weinberge, gute Erreichbarkeit der Ortschaft mit Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.
Cons Im Grunde nichts.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti ist sehr sehenswert und hat auch einige Lokale und Bars. Wir können das La Loggia di Chianti empfehlen, das ganz in der Nähe von Casafoso liegt. Das Essen ist sehr gut und die Bewirtung ist freundlich und mehrsprachig. Siena und Florenz mit Fiesole sind gut erreichbar. In Fiesole können wir das Ristorante La Reggia Degli Etruschi mit einem wunderschönen Blick über Florenz empfehlen (gehobene Küche).
