Urania is a lovely Tuscan villa for two, located in the central part of the Casalta hamlet. To the back of the villa, looking out over the Chianti hills there are views of Panzano. This side of the Urania has a pretty covered pergola furnished with table and chairs.
The Tuscan villa is entered from the central courtyard. Inside is an open plan room with a well equipped kitchenette across one wall. It includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. There is also a traditional Tuscan stone sink.
Against the other wall is a large comfortable double sofa above which is an exposed stone wall providing the room with some of its original character. This room is completed by a round table with four chairs.
Passing under a typical Tuscan terracotta arch and down a couple of steps there is a little hall, off which is the bathroom and bedroom. The bathroom is spacious with a large shower across the back wall. The bedroom is a double room with plenty of space and furnished with a pretty iron bed with intricate lace work on the headboard. Completing the room is an armchair, mirror and double wardrobe.
The terrace is divided from the terrace of Urania's neighbour, Athena, by several tall potted plants.
Due to an interconnecting door this villa can be rented together with Athena, as Athena-Urania.

High-speed wireless internet access available for an additional small fee per week. Please bring your own laptop.

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.

Pool Info

The pool is located up several stone steps behind the laundry room. It is protected from the hamlet by a high stone wall and iron gate. The other three sides of the pool are open with a cypress and fir trees.
Surrounding the pool is a large sun deck dotted with several umbrellas and sunbeds. Above the pool is a second, rarely used car park. There are some views of the Chianti hills through the cypress trees. The pool is 12 x 7 meter, 1.2-1.6 metres deep. Open from May to September.

Pros DieRäumlichkeiten, Lage, die Aussicht, sowie der Pool. Alles hat uns sehr gut gefallen !
Cons Die Wegbeschreibung ab der Budesstraße ist eine Katastrophe. Die Suche nach dem Weg zwischen den Weinbergen hat zu lange gedauert. Es ging auch anderen Gästen so. Vorschlag: die Einfaht zum Weg ins Domizil genau beschreiben und mit Bildern den Zwischeneingang unten an der Straße beschreiben (die Adresse ist Navi nicht die Adresse des Domizils).
Local attractions Siena ist ein wunderbares Ausflugsziel. Florenz ist sehr überlaufen, aber auch schön.

Pros Het is een prachtig verbouwd huis met luxe op een prachtige locatie, die een geweldig uitgangspunt is om de chianti te ontdekken, ook Siena, Florence en San Gimignano zijn goed bereikbaar. Castellina ligt vlakbij en is een leuk dorpje en Greve is ook zeker de moeite waard. Het zwembad is ruim van opzet en het geheel is zeer rustig gelegen.
Local attractions Winebar Il Cantuccio in Castellina is zeer de moeite waard, geweldige wijnen en ook het eten is heerlijk. De bediening zeer vriendelijk en het terras is heerlijk gelegen. Wij bevelen een bezoek aan het wijnhuis Brancaia zeer aan, als ook een bezoek aan het wijnhuis Marchesi Antinori, geweldig pand, de rondleidingen zijn echter niet goedkoop!

Pros die Ferienwohnung ist sehr schön eingerichtet, sauber und ansprechend. Die Aussicht in die Natur der Toskana lässt keine Wünsche offen. Der Pool ist sehr sauber und schön gelegen. Uns hat es sehr gefallen.
Cons Einzig die Zufahrt zur Ferienwohnung ist durch die schlechte unbefestigte Stra?e sehr mühsam und beschwerlich.
Local attractions Sienna ist die Stadt in der Toskana, die uns am besten gefallen hat, mit unzähligen Trattorias und Bars, in denen wohl jeder etwas passendes finden kann.

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 We loved the peaceful and private setting of Casalta. We were the only people at the entire property and we loved how relaxing it was. The views were breathtaking. We loved grilling on the grill that was provided and cooking on the gas stove. We really appreciated the good-quality pots/pans. The location of the villa made it easy to explore all over Chianti and other wine regions and the coast. This was our first time to Tuscany and we were so happy we chose Urania at Casalta. Thank you for opening your villa to us.
Cons Hidden fees/charges: - didn't know we needed to bring 250 Euro cash with us for deposit and taxes - would have been nice to know this up-front as that's quite a bit of cash to have on hand. Luckily Daniela accepted our US dollers instead. - we were charged for using the heater - we didn't realize this before arriving either. We felt the villa was under-stocked with supplies: - only 2 wine glasses - no staple items most other villas in the US have like salt/pepper, aluminum foil, paper towels, ice, cleaning supplies and sponges - we were given only 1 roll of toilet paper for 1 week (I guess we were expected to purchase our own?) - we were given only 1 dish towel - we had to ask for another

Pros Die absolut traumhafte Lage !! Außerdem sehr zentral zum erreichen sämtlich in der Nähe liegender Städte (Siena, Volterra,San Gimignano usw.). Dann das schöne sehr alte restaurierte Gebäude, welches mit viel Hingabe und Liebe zum Detail ausgebaut wurde!
Cons Der schon häufig angesprochene Anfahrtsweg, nicht aufgrund der Beschaffenheit (Sand und Schotter), das ist in Ordnung, es sind halt Land/Wirtschaftswege, sondern aufgrund der vielen tiefen ausgewaschenen Schlaglöcher und Mulden die ohne weiteres mal mit ein bisschen neuen Schotter aufgefüllt werden könnten, man möchte ja auch das die Urlauber ohne Defekt oder Unterbodenschaden am Fahrzeug die Anlage erreichen !

Pros Unsere Ferienwohnung war sehr neuwertig, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Wir möchten gern wieder kommen :-) Der Pool traumhaft schön.
Unsere Vermieterin war sehr nett und hat sich um uns sehr gekümmert. Andere Feriengäste hatten ein Problem, wo sich der Vermieter nicht gekümmert hat - unsere Vermieterin hat denen geholfen. Sehr sehr nett!
Cons Die ersten 2 Tage waren Bauarbeiter beim Pool, so dass wir Ihnen nicht nutzen konnten. Wir haben dann bei unserer Vermieterin angerufen, und Sie hat sich sofort darum gekümmert.
