Pros The house is located in a beautiful and picturesque area in a heart of Chianti vineyards. It's ideal for people who are looking for peace and who would like to spend their vacations close to nature. It's also good place for jogging or cycling and moreover near to all the most important cities of Tuscany which are really worth seeing.
And of course the owners are very kind and helpful in every situation.
Local attractions apart from Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, we also loved Monteriggioni, Volterra, Badia a Coltibuono and a lot of other places which we visited turning aside from the main routes...

Pros Om te ontstressen is deze woning ideaal. We kregen watbwe zochten, een huis afgelegen waar je kon kijken over een fantastisch landschap!
Cons We waren met zeven, dit is het maximum aantal personen. het huis maar voorzien voor 6 personen (7de persoon had een slaapbank) Als de deur dichtslaat en de sleutel ligt binnen, kan je niet meer naar binnen!
Local attractions Pizzeria l'antica grigglia hebben we heel goedkoop en super lekker gegeten. San gimigniano is een middeleeuws stadje waar je zeker een bezoekje aan moet brengen. Dit is wel touristisch maar de drukte viel hier nog mee. Breng ook zeker en bezoek aan het dorp castellina in chianti. Wijn proeven en rondleiding bij rocca delle macie. Ze spraken hier vloeiekd engels. Mooie uitzichten waar je heel makkelijk kan picknicken Firenze zouden we niet aanraden omdat alles hier heel duur is en veel te druk.

Pros Lovely welcome from Erika and her family. Secluded spot with well furnished facilities. Kitchen had ample range of utensils. Washing up liquid, charcoals for the barbecue, soap in the bathrooms all added up to a very comfortable villa that was ready to enjoy. Great pool in which to cool off.
Cons Nothing to detract from our week in this well appointed villa.

Pros Peaceful roomy and the pool just big enough to cool down in. Surrounded by Chianti producers ofering win tastings.
Cons The 15 minute journey to Castellina in Chianti before you could go anywhere, but its remoteness was part of its beauty
Local attractions The nearest town, Castellina in Chianti is a little gem with good restaurants and icecream palours, not to mention fantastic views.

Pros Die Ruhe und die Abgeschiedenheit in den Weinbergen des Chianti. Dennoch nur 6km von der Zivilisation (Poggibonsi u. Castellina in Chianti) entfernt. Damit sehr gut gelegen für Ausflüge in die bekannten Städte, wie San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra und die Chianti-Weinstrasse. Familie Salvini pflegt das Haus mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail. Es ist gepflegt und sehr sauber. Zur Begrüssung stand eine Flasche Vino Nobile de Montepulciano bereit.
Cons Der TV Emfpang war mangelhaft. Satellitenemfang? War aber nicht entscheidend, da wir Superwetter hatten. Jeden Tag über 30 Grad Celsius und wir genossen bis in die späten Abendstunden den Pool, Garten und die Terrasse.
Local attractions Siena, San Gimignano, Greve, Montepulciano, Montalcino. Wir haben uns Abends auf der Terrasse selbst verpflegt bzw. gegrillt. Wir waren nur 2x mittags zum Lunch und das in Monteriggioni in der Bar dell`Orso. Sehr empfehlenswert für Wanderer, Radfahrer und Hausmannskost. War jedes Mal sehr gut besucht. Einfach, aber ausgezeichnet im Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Sehr guter Service.

Pros De unieke ligging. Binnen bleef het redelijk koel. Het zwembad was fijn. Ruim voldoende serviesgoed en keukenbenodigdheden. Erg aardige mensen. Het ontbrekende koffiezetapparaat werd prompt aangeschaft.
Cons Jammer dat een vaatwasser ontbreekt. De inrichting van de kamer/keuken is vrij donker. Het dubbele aantal handdoeken (de grote) zou fijn zijn geweest. De prijs staat niet helemaal in verhouding tot het gebodene als je dat vergelijkt met andere huizen. D.w.z. ons verblijf was duur ten opzichte van anderen.
Local attractions De ijssalon is Castelina kunnen we van harte aanbevelen. We hebben geen goede ervaringen bij Tre Porte. We moesten eindeloos wachten, kregen niet allemaal tegelijk ons hoofdgerecht. D.w.z. 2 personen hadden het al op en toen duurde het nog een half uur voor de 3 anderen aan hun pizza konden beginnen. E.e.a. zonder uitleg/toelichting. Natuurlijk zijn alle plaatsen en plaatsjes in de omgeving zeer bezienswaardig, evenals de ritten er naar toe, waarbij je wel een enigszins avontuurlijk berijder moet zijn.

Pros We had a wonderful holiday at Casetta Erika. As always, the photographs and description on the To-Tuscany website were very accurate. The location is incredibly quiet and peaceful. Hardly a car passed by all week. We ate all our meals outside, alternating between the terrace and front garden tables, following the shade. The living area is small but perfectly adequate as we spent most of our time outside. We'd suggest taking the lower road to Castellina as the other route involves a long, steep unsurfaced stretch. The owners met us on arrival and were so very friendly and helpful. What a lovely family!
Cons Nothing. It was just great.
Local attractions There's so much to see around here. Castellina-in Chianti is a lovely town with great restaurants; Siena is easy to reach as is stunning San Gimignano. Many thanks to Erika's daughter for telling us about Certaldo's medieval festival. Definitely worth a visit if you are around at the right time. Favourite restaurants: Antica Trattoria La Torre, Piazza del Comune, Castellina. Osteria di Fonterutoli, Fonterutoli.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Zum Einen das Entspannen am Pool - wahres Higlight war wohl aber der Besuch des Palio in Siena.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Das Haus selbst ist wirklich der Hammer! Die Leute pflegen Casetta Erika offensichtlich sehr liebevoll. Auch hat wirklich alles funktioniert (an elektrischen Geräten und Co.), was in Italien auch nicht immer selbstverständlich ist. Wirklich ein superschönes Haus.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Außer, dass es am Anreisetag geregnet hat, als würde die Welt untergehen, nichts.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?

Quels ont été les point forts de vos vacances?
Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? Petite maison isolée au coeur de la Toscane, entourée d'un magnifique paysage calme : des vignes, des champs.
Même si Casetta Erika n'est pas typiquement une maison de style Toscan, elle reste néanmoins une location très agréable, très propre et fonctionnelle.
La piscine est également très appréciable !
