Galenda is a small romantic hamlet located not far from Radda in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti, two of the main towns of the area. Galenda sits at the top of a hill surrounded by typical Chianti Classico Tuscan landscape with cypresses, olive groves and vineyards.

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. There are two roads passing through the hamlet that join and ending in a small charming square. The communal car park is located at the entrance to the property.

Pros Qualité des éléments présents que ce soit au niveau de la cuisine ou de la literie et l'espace de vie même la terrasse est suffisante pour 4.
Équipements de qualité et environnement calme et soigné
Cons Tout nous a plus! Peut être envisager: une cafetière à filtre et peut être un peu plus d'assiettes et de verres car au bout d'un repas plus assez pour en faire un 2ème (au total 6 assiettes)
Local attractions Sur sienne et Florence .....nous n'avons pas mangé pas à proximité de l'appartement.

Pros L'appartement est très bien aménagé. Les pièces sont grandes et bien éclairées. A part quelques points ( voir point suivant ) il ne manque rien.
Nous avons apprécié la réactivité et disponibilité du personnel.
Cons 1. La terrasse est trop petite. Il n'est malheureusement pas possible de manger à quatre personnes. 2. On aurait bien aimé d'avoir disposé d'un aspirateur dans l'appartement évitant d'attendre le ménage en fin de location après deux semaines. 3. Pour une famille une machine à café classique serait très utile. 4. Il manque peut être 4 chaises longues pour la piscine.
Local attractions Il y a des bons restaurants à Rada in Chianti avec des prix très correcte. La visite du glacier à Castellina in Chianti est incontournable. Celui de Rada in Chianti n'est pas mal non plus. Florence ( à 1 heure ) et Sienne ( à 30 min. ) sont des villes magnifique. La distance courte permet d'y retourner plusieurs fois.

Pros Zustand der Anlage, Swimming Pool, großzügige Zimmer, zentrale Lage im Chianti, unkomplizierte Übergabe der Schlüssel.
Cons das von Ihrer Seite nicht genannt wurde, dass das angrenzende Haus saniert wird und tagsüber Baustellenlärm herrscht. Der zu kleine Balkon in unserem ansonsten sehr großzügigem Appartement.
Local attractions Castellina insgesamt im besonderen die Eisdiele und die Bar Dante in Radda zum Frühstück

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Ausflüge zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten und das ausgezeichnetet Essen.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Super Ruhig!!! Ansonsten eine tolle Anlage die Entspannung garantiert "Haven on earth"
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen?
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Das I-Tüpfelchen wäre es, wenn bei der Anlage am Pool noch ein Cappuccino zu bekommen wäre (ein kleiner Service), 2-3 Liegen mehr am Pool wären auch nicht verkehrt.
