Here there is a large sun terrace furnished with sun loungers, and a covered seating area which has a table, tennis table, chairs and a bar fridge. There are fantastic views from poolside overlooking Castellina in Chianti and the Tuscan landscape.

Pros The views are awesome. The pool area is excellent, this is the best of many I have seen. Castellina is within walking distance - around 30 minutes at an easy pace, especially as there is an initial climb ( coming back is downhill of course).
Cons I cannot think of any reasonable drawbacks.
Local attractions Casanovina is already in a beautiful location with plenty to do within the vicinity. We went to the tourist information office in Castellina. Some of the local castles are well worth a visit. We bought our Chianti loose from the local enoteca in town. It was was delicious and much cheaper.

Lovely house. Ideal for an adult family group. Loved the outdoor eating area. Wonderful holiday!
Cons Some of the mattresses were a bit hard.
Local attractions The ice cream shop in castellina - amazing! Hypermarket in poggibonsi was great and another amazing ice cream place just around the corner. Florence and lots of beautiful smaller towns all very close.

Pros Die gelben Rosen auf dem Küchentisch, Wein aus Castellina in Chianti und das feine Olivenöl hat uns sehr positiv überrascht. Der ganze Urlaub war für uns ein super Erlebnis.
Cons Da gibt es nichts zu meckern. Falls man das Weckermodel "krähender Hahn" nicht mag sollte man zu Hause bleiben.

Pros L'emplacement de la villa est exceptionnel avec une vue magnifique notamment depuis la piscine . On est vraiment au coeur du Chianti avec les oliviers et les vignes à perte de vue . La villa composée de deux parties autonomes se prête bien à une famille dont un jeune couple avec enfants qui peut profiter de son indépendance. La piscine est grande ( 12,5m ) et très bien entretenue: avec ses 8 chaises longues , on se croirait dans un hôtel 4 étoiles ....Accueil très gentil du propriétaire Fabrizio bien que la barrière de la langue ne facilite pas les échanges mais avec les mains et le regard , on finit par se comprendre ! Franceso efficace et disponible maîtrise bien mieux l'anglais que le français .
Cons Peut-être les couverts et les plats gagneraient ils à être un peu plus nombreux . Il ne faut pas oublier que l'on est à la campagne et que les coqs se réveillent à 5 heure du matin et que lorsqu'on dort les fenêtres ouvertes , ils peuvent aussi réveiller les paisibles dormeurs ; on finit pas s'y habituer et c'est plus agréable que le bruit du bus ou du camion poubelles de nos villes ...En revanche moins sympas sont les aboiements du (des) chien(s) de Fabrizio mais là aussi , on s'y habitue .
Local attractions Nous n'avons pas vraiment profité des restaurants de Castellina car on a pas mal rayonné à travers le Chianti et la Toscane et à cet égard , Castellina est un bon point de départ car bien placé entre Florence ,Sienne et San Gimignano. C'est un petit village touristique très sympa où on trouve à peu près tout pour se nourrir ; pour les grosses courses , mieux vaut aller au COOP de Pongibonsi à 30 mn . A noter que Pise et son aéroport international est assez loin de Castellina : il faut compter 1h30 sur des voies rapides où il faut s'habituer à la façon de conduire des italiens ...

Pros Vine covered terrace with beautiful views
The very kind and helpful Fabrizio and his family.
The very efficient and amusing Francesco!
Local attractions Castellina - quiet but not too quiet - great for breakfast when the youngsters were still in bed. Probably the best butcher in Tuscany - Riccardo Stiaccini; and the most helpful Nardice in the excellent tourist office. Castellare vineyard - a short walk down the hill.

Pros Die Lage mit der herrlichen Aussicht und der wunderschöne Pool, insgesamt die komplette Anlage hat uns begeistert.
Cons Leider gabs nur italiensches Fernsehen, so dass wir die ganze Woche ohne Informationen waren - ist zwar nicht so wichtig im Urlaub, wäre aber gut.
Local attractions Sehr gut gefallen hat uns Siena und San Gimignano und natürlich Florenz. Tre Porte in Castellina war sehr gut und die Osteria alla Piazza ist ein tolles Lokal, auch wegen der schönen Lage. Ein ausgezeichnet leckeres Eis gibt es in der Antica Gelateria in Castellina.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Being in Tuscany - wonderful!
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent althoiugh since our last stay they have altered the accommodation so we had to divide our party into 2. We were not informd about this prior to our stay. Why? Heating was needed because new accommodation was very cold.
Lovely owners.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? The change of the set up of the accommodation as we couldn't all be together.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service?
