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.

Pros Die Wohnung ist sehr gross und vollständig ausgestattet. Aussenanlagen und Schwimmbad sind wunderschön.
Cons Die Wände waren feucht, was dazu führte dass ständig Schimmelgeruch herrschte. Im grossen Ganzen ist das Caraveggio eine sehr schöne Wohnung allerdings sieht man überall Spuren der vorigen Gäste und dass sie nicht nach jedem Besuch vollständig gereinigt wird und defekte Elemente repariert werden. Der Preis war zu hoch für die Qualität die wir schlussendlich geboten bekamen.

There was some damp appeared which the owner is taking immediate action to repair. Apologies about the cleaning, the issues concerned some open packs of dried food left by the cleaners form previous guests, this is sometimes seen as useful by other guests.

Pros Sehr geschmackvoll im italienischen Stil eingerichtet. Sehr gut ausgestattete Küche. Fernseher und Stereoanlage besser als bei uns daheim:-)
Cons Bei Ankunft empfing uns ein muffig-schimmliger Geruch. Ob die Wohnung generell ein Schimmelproblem hat-behandelte Stellen im Wohnzimmer ersichtlich-oder die Schimmelbildung mit dem feuchten Wetter, der mangelnden Lüftung wenn nicht belegt, zusammenhängt war nicht ganz klar. Luftentfeuchter zu empfehlen. Es war auch kühl, wir haben ordentlich Gas verheizt. Wir haben uns trotzdem wohlgefühlt.
Local attractions Restaurant Bottega in Volpaia-super Blick, super Essen, super preiswert Radda ist auf jeden Fall ein Ausflug wert Einkaufslädchen in Lecchi super knuffig San Gimignano- gute Möglichkeit Töpferware zu kaufen Siena: beeindruckender Dom, tolle Altstadt und natürlich der Rathausplatz Pisa: Areal des Schiefen Turms toll-auch ein Abstecher ans Meer für ein gemütliches Abendessen ist noch möglich

Pros Mooie locatie in het midden van Toscane, en de grootte van het huisje
Cons De check-in was droevig. We kregen 2 handdoeken voor de hele week, geen toegang tot Wifi terwijl dat wel in het huisje aanwezig was. Toen ik vroeg waar ik het afval kwijt kon, werd verwezen naar het boek dat in het huisje lag. We konden niet buiten zitten omdat we daar werden aangevallen door muggen.
Local attractions Het lag in the middle of nowhere, dus zorg ervoor dat je voldoende proviand bij hebt. De dichtstbijzijnde supermarkt ligt op 20 min rijden.

Pros La situation, le calme , la beauté de petits villages typiques, la proximité de Sienne et Florencel
Cons Le bruit lié aux travaux de restauration de la maison d'a côté
Local attractions Nous avons adoré flâner dans les rues de Radda, visiter la Cantina de Grève, admirer la ville de Sienne. Très bon restaurant à Radda : restaurant avec vue panoramique imprenable. Le restaurant Vignale !

Pros Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet. Die ganze Anlage ist groß und sauber, ein großer Pool.
Cons Die versprochene Klimaanlage fehlt, dadurch waren die Nächte sehr heiß. WLAN-Router steht in der Wohnung aber nicht zu verfügung. In der Nacht ein störendes Geräusch.

Pros Een heerlijk, rustig gelegen, maar erg centraal in Toscane gelegen, prachtig appartement, voorzien van alles wat je als vakantievierder wenst, in erg goede conditie, samenstelling en smaak.
Cons Als je het zo moet noemen: de ontvangst van zenders via satelliet was beperkt, heel veel duitse zenders, terwijl met satelliet veel meer mogelijk is. Daarnaast een hinderlijk gezoem/geluid van waarschijnlijk het zwembad-zuiveringsinstallatie, vooral 's nachts een beetje hinder van gehad.
Local attractions Te veel om te noemen, we zijn 360 graden in de rondte in de Toscaanse omgeving geweest. Maar favoriet was in elk geval het overheerlijke ijs in Castellina en het heerlijke restaurant aan de doorgaande weg in Radda.

Pros We very much enjoyed the tranquility of the hamlet, and the spacious nature of the appartment itself. The central location within the Chianti countryside was perfect, with a car we were able to explore many towns and vinyards with ease.
Cons We found just two issues with Caravaggio at Galenda. Firstly the grounds were very overvrown, the smaller paths in particular, also the view we expected from the pool was obscured by many bushes and trees grown up. Second, the appartment could really benefit from proper air conditioning included.
Local attractions Vinyards: Casanuova di Ama (bloomin marvelous); Albola (setting); Vescine. San Gimignano, Poggibonsi market, Grotta Della Rana, San Sano.

 Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Freundlicher Empfang, auf besonderes Anliegen (SAT 1 Empfang wegen Champions League Finale) wurde eingegangen und Lösung bereitgestellt.
 Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck der Unterbrungung? Sehr gepflegte Anlage und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung. Viel Ruhe, angenehme Mitbewohner.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Täglich Wasser auf Terasse von Bewässerung Beete, auch tagsüber nicht getrocknet. Dadurch Wespen.
Störendes Geräusch im Schlafzimmer von Gasversorgung.

Quels ont été les point forts de vos vacances? Très belle situation.
Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? Très agréable sous une réserve (cfr mauvaises surprises).
Avez vous eu de mauvaises surprises? Un bruit de fond, surtout dans la chambre à coucher. Très désagréable, au point d'avoir difficiel à trouver le sommeil. Il est inadmissible de devoir faire appel à des boules Quiès en un séjour rural réputé pour sa tranquilité.
Avez vous d'autres commentaires?
