Location: Casalta

Casalta is a finely restored Tuscan hamlet of 9 villas that maintains all its original characteristics, with well maintained, simple gardens of local plant, shrubs and herbs. It is located in the heart of the Chianti within easy reach of Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti.
The pool is located a few steps away from the villas and is protected by a beautiful stone wall to one side, while the other has towering cypress trees through which there are fantastic views of the Chianti hills covered in vineyards and olive groves.
The hamlet, once owned by Galileo Galilei, is composed of two buildings around a quaint, traditional stone courtyard in which there is a pizza oven. To one side is an independent cottage while near the pool is a second, small cottage with the laundry. In front of the laundry is a large, stone terrace furnished with tables and chairs for communal use.

Pros Traumhafte Lage, großzügige, gut ausgestattete Wohnung, zentral zwischen vielen Toskana-Highlights gelegen.
Cons Kleine Abstriche bei der Zufahrt, die aber nicht so schlimm war, wie wir nach anderen Kommentaren erwartet hatten. Nachdem wir auf Ausflügen und beim Einkaufen sehr viele andere staubummantelte Autos gesehen haben, gehen wir davon aus, dass die Schotterpiste hoch nach Casalta Toskana-Standard ist.
Local attractions Panzano, Castellina (wenn auch auf den ersten Blick enttäuschend - man muss erst mal weit genug reinlaufen! --> tolle Eisdiele im Gewölbegang an der Stadtmauer!) und definitiv Siena mit der prachtvollsten Kathedrale der Welt.

Pros Clean, well equipped, nice pool area, good location from to travel to interesting sites, far enough away for a relaxing time but travel for shopping etc within easy reach.
Cons the road is not great but has its own charm, just make sure your car is good enough. the washing machine is not very good. These are minor issues, overall a very good, well appointed and positioned property. Also no bath, however, that is a good thing for the environment.
Local attractions All of the towns around have excellent restaurants.

Pros The owner has informed us that the road has been improved (Dec 2013).

As advised in the villa description, the approach road is an unpaved countryside road with uphill sections. A low vehicle is not recommended.

The owner assures that it is safe to pass without damage to your vehicle.

Pros Prachtig groot appartement, lekker groot en ruim en erg leuk ingericht.
Mooi zwembad, fijne ligstoelen.
Echt 'kasteelheer-gevoel'
Cons Lastige ongeasfalteerde weg ernaartoe. Zeker het laatste stukje was te steil voor onze huur-auto.... NB de routebeschrijving was wel prima, want we reden er in 1x naartoe ('voor de brug links, tussen twee boerderijen door' enz).
Local attractions Marktje op zondag in Panzano Dagje naar Sienna (uiiteraard) Greve in Chianti: heerlijk eten op de markt Radda is prachtig pm gewoon rond te slenteren
