Casalino Due is a picturesque traditional Tuscan villa in the heart of the Chianti Classico.It was originally built in 1680 and later restored in 1997. Within the well maintained grounds of the villa is a separate cottage which is perfect for two people. Casalino Due offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and is only 2.5km away from the town of Panzano in Chianti.
Situated a short distance from the main villa in the fenced garden is the wonderful sparkling swimming pool. The pool is surrounded on three sides with pretty shrubs and trees. The open side offers the most spectacular views of the rolling countryside and distant mountains.
Attached to the main villa is a spacious covered terrace. It is furnished with plenty of tables and chairs and is the perfect place to dine al-fresco while enjoying the spectacular views which include the famous villa ‘Vignamaggio’ perched on a nearby hilltop. This well known villa has been used in many films including “Much ado about nothing” (1993). Close by the terrace in the garden is a huge brick built barbecue with  pizza oven.
Entry to the villa is directly into the very spacious main lounge. This room is furnished with a triple sofa and matching double sofa. Other furnishings include an antique cupboard, large glass and stone table and two iron chairs that are positioned in front of the huge open fireplace. To the right of the room through a bricked archway is the dining room. A second opening leads to the main stairs and a guest toilet, while a sloping corridor leads down into the kitchen.
The dining room is full of natural light and space. In the centre of the room is a very impressive traditional Tuscan dining table with bench seating for twelve or more people.

Stay: June 2014
Pros We had the trip of a lifetime!! The owners were incredibly welcoming and the villa was beautiful!! Its rooms were spacious and artistically decorated. The kitchen was incredibly large and well equipped, and the view of the Tuscan countryside was beyond our expectations. We all loved having the pool and enjoyed all of the fabulous lush landscaping. The nearest town, Panzano, is a quintessential local town with a produce market on Sunday, and a great wine bar and cafe (excellent brioche), along with a very special view. The closeness to Florence (we caught a bus right at the end of the driveway!) and Siena was a huge plus. Greve was another town nearby with a nice piazza and great cantina with amazing thin crust pizza. All-in-all we were incredibly fulfilled, but so sad to leave........
Local attractions We hired a large van and guide and did a tour of the wine country in Chianti. It included the beautiful medieval towns of Radda and Castellina, and a visit to a local organic farm "Tenuta Casanova" which included a tour of the wine and Balsamic vinegar cellars along with a typical (amazing!!) Tuscan lunch. We then headed to another private wine tasting at the magnificent, Castello della Paneretta - a castle set on a hilltop with a jaw-dropping panoramic view. We also did day trips to Florence and Sienna, and a quick afternoon trip to San Gimignano (a small walled medieval town with beautiful towers everywhere and great shopping).

Nearest town

The nearest town is Panzano 2.5km away. Situated high on a ridge Panzano is a wonderful blend of both modern and ancient times. There are plenty of popular restaurants and bars available to choose from. The local butchers shop “Antica Macelleria Cecchini “ has become so popular that it has become  a tourist attraction in its own right. The owner also owns the restaurant “Solociccia”, where patrons sit at long communal tables in traditional Tuscan style. Other amenities in the area include, grocery shops, bank, pharmacy and a Sunday market. Panzano is also famous for its wine festival which is held in the third week of September every year.  Approximately 500 metres from the villa is the popular restaurant “Fattoria Montagliari”.
