Casa Girasole is a lovely, naturally cool, comfortable and characteristic Tuscan villa.  Originally an old wine cellar, it still has its original high vaulted ceilings made of stone with alcoves set in the walls. The floors are paved with traditional terracotta tiles throughout.
A short distance from the cosy villa is a raised terrace complete with private Jacuzzi for up to 6 people. This is a wonderful spot to relax while enjoying the warm Tuscan sunshine.

The raised terrace is furnished with an iron table and four chairs, perfect for dining al-fresco. From here guests can enjoy glorious views of the surrounding countryside and distant hills.
Inside the villa is an open plan lounge, diner and kitchen. Plenty of light enters the room from the glass main door with a window above. The lounge is furnished with a double sofa, small table, wooden cabinet and a television. Immediately to the left of the main entrance is a bathroom with shower.
At the back of the room is the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen offers plenty of workspace. There is an oven with gas hobs, washing machine and a small fridge with internal freezer compartment. To one side is a wooden dining table with seating for six.
To the right of the lounge is a double bedroom. This room also has a high stone vaulted ceiling and the original rough stone wall at one end. It is furnished with an iron double bed, chest of drawers with mirror, double wardrobe and a single armchair. Plenty of light enters the room from the single window.


Access to the furnished terrace is approximately 50 meters away from the front of the villa.

1 Double bed cannot be converted into twins.

Wifi is only available from the terrace.

Pros UPDATE

The kitchen is now fully equipped - including enough wine glasses.

The owner apologises that the scissors were found to be unclean and will ensure more thorough checks on the cleaning of the utensils.

Pros Character of the place. It was very comfortable. The village was nice and the cafe was well located. It wasn't too far from the town. Fabulous views.
Cons The kitchen equipment was inadequate for cooking. Only 1wine glass was not conducive of being in Chianti. The walk down to the terrace was ok but we rarely used it as it was inconvenient. The toilet is too close to the shower.
Local attractions Favourite attractions were the Vineyards, the cafe on the corner at Vertine. We also like the restaurant in Giaole lo sfizio di bianchi for lunch. Nadia a Coltibuono was nice especially the shop there.

Pros Location and the area it was based in
Cons Bed was far to hard and no extra linen as the nights were chilly. Could have done with extra pillows and extra towels. One thing that did bother us is that the scissors in the draw was full of fish and therefore cutlery wasnt cleaned properly.
Local attractions Best restuarant in the area by far was La Contrade. In fact, Top 5 restuarants we have ever been to world wide and we have eaten at top Michelin star restuarants. Attractions we enjoyed the towns of Sienna and Rada.

Pros Das Objekt besitzt eine traumhafte Lage mitten in den Weinbergen. Die Wohnung verfügt über eine vollkommen ausreichende Einrichtung und versprüht mit ihren hohen Decken und steinernen Wänden einen sehr schönen Charme. In ein paar Schritten erreicht man den sehr gepflegten Poolbereich mit ausreichend Platz zum Entspannen. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und nett.

Pros Eine schöne Lage in dieser Umgebung, es war sehr erholsam; bei diesem Wetter konnten wir auch das Schwimmbad nutzen.
Cons In einer Weingegend wäre es schön, wenn auch Weingläser im Appartment vorrätig wären.
Local attractions Wir haben jeden Tag ein anderes Lokal besucht und wir waren überall zufrieden.
