Le Volte is a typical Tuscan villa that has a stone, courtyard entrance through a large iron gate. The courtyard is private to Colle di Ama. Outside the villa is an iron table with chairs for dining al fresco. To the back of the courtyard, down a step is a covered area with a bench for relaxing outdoors in the shade.
Inside a large wooden door there is an open plan kitchen-dining room. To the far side is a big glass door looking out to the road through the village, it shaded by a curtain which allows light to pass but provides privacy. The centre of the room has a wooden dining table that comfortably seats 6 to 8 people. To one side is a wooden sideboard. The room has the traditional Tuscan terracotta floor while the ceiling is with small terracotta vaults.
The kitchen is to the back of the room. It has a small central table for work space. To one side is the traditional Tuscan marble sink. Along another wall is the cooker with electric hobs, and a fridge with separate freezer compartment. The kitchen is well equipped. To the back is a small bathroom with shower.
From the centre of the room iron stairs lead to the first floor where there is a sitting area. It is nicely decorated with rugs, a triple sofa and two armchairs. In one corner is an antique, decorative stove that cannot be used. The windows look out towards the winery across the road.
Off one side of the room is a small study which has a writing desk and an armchair. This room also has pretty rugs covering the typical Tuscan terracotta floor. The ceiling is dome shaped with terracotta tiles. An antique cupboard has a collection of bookings and other reading material.
Stone steps lead sharply up to the second floor and onto a small landing. To the right is a double bedroom which can be converted into a twin. This is a smallish room, with a sloped, wooden beamed ceiling, which becomes quite low. There is a skylight in the lower part of the ceiling. Two armchairs and a wooden chest of drawers complete the furnishings.
To the other side of the landing is a double bedroom. This cannot be made into a twin. The room has a lovely warm feel from the gold colours of the furnishings. It has a large wooden wardobe, a chest of drawers and a couple of chairs. The window looks out to a beautiful view of the vineyards and several cottages and the neighbouring village. Next to this bedroom and the stairs is a small bathroom with shower.
The third double bedroom is off a short corridor at the end of which is a small store-room. This is the largest of the three bedrooms. It's decorated in lovely red colours. The ceiling is the highest of the three bedrooms. It is furnished with an armchair, chest of drawers and large wood wardrobe. Through an arched door is a bathroom with shower. The window looks out to the pretty views of the vineyards.
Airconditioning in all the bedrooms only and charged for.
If a twin room is required please request this when booking.

Location: Colle di Ama

Colle di Ama is a collection of four rental villas and the owners villa, located in the heart of a tiny Tuscan village, Casanuova di Ama, in which there is a winery. The village is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, providing it with typical Tuscan views.
The pool, which is private to the Colle di Ama villas, is located a short distace from the villas, behind the village buildings. From this fantastic position it looks out towards the rolling vine covered hills of the Chianti Classico region.
The little hamlet is located a few minutes drive away from Lecchi in Chianti, which places it in the perfect position to visit the Chianti as well as the historical towns of Florence and Siena.

There are other houses of the village attached to the villas that make up Colle di Ama.
During the grape harvest season there will be some farm noise from the winery.

Pros Das kann man nicht mit einigen Worten beschreiben, es ist bei solchen Dingen zu meist das Ganze. Da ist es in Le Volte und auch den in den anderen Häusern mit dieser Zimmeranzahl einfach für jeden einen Rückzug zu finden. Durch die etagenweise Gliederung sind die Schlafräume gut aus von den Wohnräumen getrennt. Somit ist dort genug Ruhe vorhanden. Der Wohnküchenbereich hat alles zu bieten und übervoll ausgestattet. Handtücher, Badetücher, Seifen, Begrüßungskorb, Nespressomaschine....
Dazu kommt noch eine Verwalterin der Anlage mit voller Liebe und Freundlichkeit die einem entgegen gebracht wird.

Cons Nicht gefalle hat mir mein "Navi" das für diesen Ort andere Bezeichnungen benötigt. Aber die Beschreibung war dahingehend voll ausreichend.

Pros Tout était parfait. Maison avec beaucoup de cachet et de charme. Spacieuse. Cuisine très bien équipée. Très bonne literie. Villa avec tout le confort nécessaire.
Cons La cour commune que l'on partage avec l'appartement d'en haut, c'est gênant de participer aux conversations des autres vacanciers.
Local attractions La petite épicerie de Radda in Chianti où l'on trouve des produits de premières nécessité et une excellente charcuterie. Le restaurant la Loggia del Chianti situé aussi à Radda où l'on mange très très bien, rapport qualité/prix parfait et jolie vue sur le Chianti.

Pros Set amongst a picturesque landscape and surrounded by tradition and culture, Le Volte is an exquisite villa to stay in and enjoy. The kitchen amenities are excellent and we enjoyed a few nights in, cooking. The additional bathrooms are very handy for upstairs and downstairs living and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The view from the bedrooms is so special. It exceeded our expectations.
Local attractions Lecchi is a handy little village to walk or drive to, for some basic produce. Gaiole is also reasonably near by for other essentials and is nice to stroll around, however most of our dining was either within the Villa or further out in places like Siena, or Montepulciano. Both of these places are worth a visit. We absolutely adored them.

Pros Wie hatten genug Platz! Vielleicht war der Pool ein bisschen zu kalt aber dies ist wohl normal zu dieser Jahreszeit. Den Kids hat das jedenfalls nichts ausgemacht.
Das Haus war gewaltig ausgestattet. Dort gab es wirklich jedes Haushaltsgerät vom Topf bis zum passenden Messer! Meine Familie fühlte sich sehr sehr wohl.
Cons Ich würde mir schwer tun, etwas zu finden! Es war wirklich super!

Pros Everything was super. Hope we have had a better weather, that was our only grief. Daniela is amazing, she helped us in every little thing we needed and she cooked for us an incredible dinner. Every product we ate in her Azienda Agraria Casanuava di Ama in that dinner was a typical Tuscan product. We will repeat there for sure.

Pros Prachtig huis mooi, ingericht en prachtig gelegen. Het is heerlijk rustig en er zijn buiten voldoende mogelijkheden om in de zon te zitten. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien. Ook in het huis zelf zijn veel mogelijkheden om je even rustig terug te trekken.
Het beheer door Daniela is fantastisch.Tijdens een onweersbui had ze zelf al gezien dat de stroom was uitgevallen en kwam zonder dat we hoefde te vragen de zaak weer herstellen. Ze is altijd vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Het verblijf is ons weer prima bevallen!
Local attractions Volpaia was voor ons een zeer aangename verrassing. Wat een prachtig dorpje! Prachtig hersteld en onderhouden. Midden in het dorp kun je als afsluiting van je bezoek koffiedrinken of lunchen. Montefioralle (bij Greve in Chianti) is ook een bezoek meer dan waard. Het is wel even spannend om er te komen maar die moeite wordt zeker beloond.
