It is the perfect place for relaxing after a day of sightseeing with it’s intimate atmosphere. There is a separate pool for children.
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.

The owner has visited the villa following this review. They have replaced the rubbish bin and added a new chopping board. Although the villa is only for 2 people, they have added 6 more glasses. They checked the rest of the crockery. There are 18 plates, 6 of each cutlery and all other kitchen equipment is as it should be.

Pros Superschönes Häuschen, sehr schick ausgestattet. Beide Gärten sind ganz toll, vor
allem die Liegestühle. Es es war super ruhig und sehr erholsam. Der Pool ist traum-
haft!
Cons Die Küche ist ein bisschen spärlich ausgestattet, ich habe sehr ein Schneidebrett vermisst. Und nur ein deutscher Fernsehsender ist auch nicht toll.
Local attractions Unser schönster Ausflug war durch die Crete senesi nach Montepulciano/ Pienza. Kloster Abbazia di Monte Olivetto Maria Maggiore. Wanderung von Monticiano zur Klosterruine Galgano // superschön und ein Abenteuer (man muss durch den Fluss).

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, despite several attempts, the owner has not been able to tune in further German channels. As in the villa description the TV is satellite but news only.

Pros Alles, het was een van de fijnste vakanties ooit. Echt waar.
De stek, het zwembad, de prachtig onderhouden locatie. Het heerlijke huis met de smaakvolle inrichting en het fijne bed. En de rust!
Cons Niets. Oh ja, het zwembad was nog een beetje koud (begin mei) maar wel heerlijk.
Local attractions Radda is een leuke plaats met prachtige vergezichten. Leuke restaurantjes en aardige mensen.

Pros Das Haus ist sehr schön sowohl von außen als auch von innen. Es ist liebevoll und stilvoll eingerichtet. Es ist äußerst ruhig und der Pool und die Liegen sind sehr schön und gepflegt. Auch angenehm war es, dass wir Wäsche waschen konnten.
Cons Wir haben gezielt nach einer Ferienwohnung gesucht, die SAT-TV bietet, was bei Casa Botticelli der Fall war. Aber leider gab es nur einen (1) deutschen Sender und zwar ARD. Es war nicht möglich andere deutsche Sender einzustellen, ein Mitarbeiter der Agentur war vor Ort. Auch die Anleitung für Inbetriebnahme der Waschmaschine, die Hausordnung usw. waren nur in italienisch und englisch vorhanden. Bei rund 80 Millionen Deutschen, 8 Millionen Österreichern und ein paar deutschsprachigen Schweizern (und viele davon machen in Italien Urlaub) sollte es doch möglich sein ein paar deutsche Fernsehsender einzustellen und die Infos zusätzlich zu Englisch und Italienisch auch auf Deutsch zu schreiben. Was auch gefehlt hat waren Informationen zu Ausflugszielen in der Gegend.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti, Casteligna in Chianti und Siena sind sehr zu empfehlen. Wir sind begeisterte Radfahrer und haben 270 km (davon die meisten auf und ab) zurückgelegt. Für diese 3 Städte haben wir kein Auto gebraucht, wir sind von der Unterkunft mit dem Rad gefahren.

The owner immediately arranged for German translation for the information/instruction book. (the English part is larger than the other languages) But the property management are at hand to help with any translation or any other issues.
