Bellini is found in the centre of the hamlet Galenda, it is a semi-detached villa. Bellini is part of an ancient structure maintained as it was originally built, it preserves the traditional atmosphere of a typical Tuscan cottage with the comforts of a modern home. The villa has been restored with care and attention, it is furnished tastefully to a high standard. It has external original stonewalls and internal high ceilings of terra cotta tiles and wooden beams distinctive of the ‘old’ Tuscan style.


Bellini has a terrace furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. The villa overlooks the central grassy piazza of the hamlet and both from the terrace and from the balcony there is a pretty view of it. It provides an ideal setting to relax immersed in the typical Tuscan atmosphere.


The villa is entered up some stairs a few steps away from the terrace. Entering the villa there is a spacious dining area with a modern kitchen fully equipped with gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and oven.


The dining room gives access through an arch to a large lounge. Here are all the comforts for indoor living: a large comfortable sofa and an armchair, a modern fireplace, a flat SAT TV, DVD and CD players. On one side of the lounge there is a large door leading to the balcony that provides the room with a lot of light and a gorgeous view of the hamlet.


Near the dining area there is one of the two bedrooms with a double bed. This is a comfortable bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with shower. It also has a built-in wardrobe.


From the lounge there are stairs leading to the second floor where there is a second spacious comfortable bedroom with a double bed and one large bathroom with a hydro massage tub and a shower. An indoor balcony that overlooks the dining area connects the two rooms.



Bellini is well positioned to visit the Chianti. All the main Tuscan towns are within easy reach.

Galenda is an ensemble of 12 houses all renovated to extraordinary standards and all with a private entrance and garden or terrace . High quality materials have been used for the restoration: handmade terracotta floors and the beautiful terracotta tiled, typical Tuscan high ceilings with wooden beams are distinctive features of these charming villas.

Stay: October 2012
Pros Die Lage und das Ambiente lassen "Toscanastimmung" aufkommen. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, was außerhalb der Saison für die Eigenverpflegung von Vorteil ist.
Cons Kleinigkeiten beeintächtigen den Gesamteindruck z. B.:Schimmel in der Dusche. Kaputte bzw. nicht vorhandene Glühbirnen. Zu späte Beleuchtung des Areals, was den Weg am Abend ( November) Parkplatz -Haus zum Abenteuer werden lassen.
Local attractions Wir waren täglich in Sachen "Sightseeing" unterwegs. Im November ist das Angebot an gastronomischen Betrieben in der Nähe eingeschrenkt.
