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 L'organisation des pièces.
Cons L'isolation acoustique, le manque de luminosité dans la pièce principale, la piscine qui ne mesure pas 15m x 7m, alors elle est un peu juste si toutes les villas sont au bord de l'eau. Les personnes anglaises et hollandaises qui ne respectent pas les consignes d’utilisation de la piscine (bateau pneumatique, dauphin ou orque géants...) enfin un accès qui n'est pas évident pour une voiture de sport mais qui passe sans soucis pour une voiture classique.
Local attractions La pizzeria Il Fondaccio dai dottori pour leurs pizzas Nuvolari Bar pour son charme et ses pastas Le village de Castellina di Chianti, Sienne et Florence.

Pros Die Wohnung wie auch die Anlage ist in einem ausgezeichnetem Zustand. Alles sauber, gepflegt und neu.
Cons Wir wussten zwar vorher, dass es keine Spülmaschine gibt aber sie fehlte. Es ist auch unverständlich, dass alles auf einem sehr hohen Niveau eingerichtet ist und es am Ende an so etwas fehlt.

Pros Eine sehr schöne Liegenschaft, Sehr schön in dem Weinanbau Gebiet eingebettet. Der Pool ist für Familienen perfekt und die Infrastruktur gekonnt ausgesucht. Ledier aber zu viele Regeln am Pool, welche nicht wirklich eingehalten werden.
Local attractions Zwei nahe gelegene Orte sind Castellina in Chianti und Panzano, Sehr schöne Orte mit guten Restaurants. Empfehlenswert in Panzano ist das Lokal Oltre al Giardino, wunderschöne Terrasse. Auch die Enothek in Panzano mit nur Weinen aus dem Ort. Ist bei der Piazza zu finden.

Pros The property location was beautiful & the standard of furnishing and decor was very high. The building itself was a lovely tuscan villa, more beautiful than I had expected and was very well restored. There was a lovely pool and decked area and the grounds were very neat and tidy with pretty flowers and plants. The whole property allowed for a relaxing holiday
Cons The 1km drive up to to the property is awful, there are some large potholes in the "road" which would be relatively easy to fill with gravel and make the drive safer and easier on the car (and passengers) On the website it states that there is english news available on the television - this was not the case and whereas I dont want to watch lots of TV on holiday - catching up on the news 10 mins a day for me is important - dont advertise this if it is not available WiFi was temperamental, and WiFi was an important reason I chose this villa because unfortunately I needed access to emails etc for my job and sometimes it didnt work The place was a bit too remote, you couldn't walk to any restaurants which meant someone had to drive and not enjoy a glass of chianti!
