Pros Lovely tradional villa in a beautiful location. Sara and family were very welcoming. We enjoyed the walk to the pool as the views were gorgeous. We would Definately go back again.
Cons The overall experience was lovely but the Villa needs updating, the bathroom in particular was very worn and the shower head was broken. It would have been nice to have a few basics such as fairy liquid and a sponge. There was absolutely nothing left in the villa, maybe its a H & S thing. We had very few towels for the week, one large, one medium and two small hand towels. I am sure we could have asked for more, it would have been better to have some extras ready. The walk into Radda is described as a very steed track, which it is. We enjoyed the walk but it isn't for everyone.

Pros De ondergrondse slaapkamer die opmerkelijk koeler was dan de living en keuken.
Cons Het gasfornuis werkte niet zo goed. Er konden maximum twee vuren tegelijk branden. Dit zal naar het schijnt dit jaar aangepakt worden.
Local attractions In Radda zijn heel wat restaurants. 'Il Forchetta' is wel een aanrader. Het restaurant in Volpaia is ook zeer goed met prachtig uitzicht. 'Il Vigni' (juist voor het binnenrijden van Radda biedt ook een prachtig uitzicht en het eten (evenals de wijn) is er lekker.

Pros Location was excellent - easy day trips to Florence and Siena. Only up the hill to local ammenities in Radda. Nice patio area to sit and drink wine. Nice view to vineyard.
Cons The internal stairs were dirty and bed side tables very dusty. The couch (ie sofa bed with cover) in the lounge room wasn't somewhere you could lounge to read a book. We would could easily hear the goings on of our neighbours in the next door appartment as its only separated by an internal door - thankfully there was only one couple there and that we were out most of everyday. Kitchen crockery/utensils etc could do with updating. On leaving at 5am to get to Pisa airport the front driveway gate was shut - thankfully I had kept the owners phone number provided by To Tuscany to wake the owner to let us out. The owner's mother knocking on the door at half 9 at night to try and sell us some doilies!
Local attractions The food, service and value for money at La Bottega in Volpai (10 min from the villa) was super- go there for lunch so you can sit on the terrace and admire the fabulous view - went twice. The pizza at Pizza Pie in Radda is great. Having a glass of Proseco and people watching in the afternoon at the Cafe opposite the butchers in Radda was what holidays are all about. Had a nice dinner at the family run Grotto del Ranna in San Sano. Happened on a fab Wine Festival in Panzano in Chianti. The buthcers/deli in the square of Greve in Chianti is a must see - all the local hams/salamis required for antipasti are there! Siena, San Gimgiano and Montelpuciano are all lovely day trips.
