Pros A wonderful villa, very quiet and secluded. Daniella was a perfect host, very friendly and helpful. We very much enjoyed her hospitality when dining at her small restaurant; the food was beautifully cooked and presented and the wines from the family vineyard were excellent. Highly recommended.
Local attractions We enjoyed dining at the restaurant in Lecci, a 5 minute drive from the villa and a visit to San Gimignano, the famous medieval hill town.

Pros Hoewel de natuur in mei nog op gang moest komen en dit ons eerste bezoek aan de Chianti in de lente was, hebben we met Girasole di Ama een stek gevonden om zeker naar terug te keren.
Jarenlang hebben we ons afgevraagd welke mooie villa achter de automatische poort - die door 2 pinetas bewaakt wordt – verschool. Dit jaar waren we er zelf te gast.
Het huisje ligt midden in de olijf- en wijngaarden van de familie Bencini. Hier ben je van rust en privacy verzekerd! En wat kan je je nog meer wensen met het Toscaanse landschap in je onmiddellijke omgeving: cipressen, olijfbomen en ontluikende wijnranken.
Het huisje is comfortabel en smaakvol ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Ook bij frisser weer kan je makkelijk de avond binnen doorbrengen bij de satelliet-TV in comfortabele fauteuils. Eten kan al fresco onder de veranda of binnen. Ook erg praktisch is de wifi-voorziening. Onze gastvrouw Daniela heeft aan alles gedacht bij de inrichting tot en met een verscholen kluis aan toe! De slaapkamer bevindt zich beneden en misschien nog wat frisjes in de lente, uiterst aangenaam voor de zomermaanden.
Wij waren de eerste gebruikers van de jacuzzi die de dag voor onze aankomst klaar was en waar we onder het genot van een Chianti Classico tot 2x toe gebruik van hebben gemaakt.
Daarnaast is het na 6 jaar Chianti altijd weer thuiskomen bij Daniela, Luciano en hun zoon Yuri! Wat een hartelijkheid en gastvrijheid! De eerste avond werden we verwend op een degustazione met uitgebreide Toscaanse lekkernijen want Daniele weet wat lekker koken is.
Vol trots heeft Yuri zijn vino Bianco -Matuttino- aan ons laten proeven die hij als gediplomeerd vinoloog voor het eerst zelfstandig heeft samengesteld.
Wij hebben volop genoten en wij weten het wel zeker: dit wordt een vast vakantieadres!
Cons Niets, helemaal NIETS!
Local attractions - privé kookcursus door Simone Muricci @ Ristorante Malborghetto: leerzaam, gezelligheid, fun, dosis humor en onder het genot van passende wijnen bij de zelfgemaakte maaltijd ook nog grappige geschiedkundige en culturele uiteenzettingen: http://www.malborghetto.net/ - de (enige) ijssalon/bar met gratis wifi in Radda in Chianti: Bar Sandy - La Grotta della Rana : zoon en vader koken en serveren: http://www.lagrottadellarana.it/ - voor een goed glas wijn en antipasti: La Bottega di Giovannino in Radda in Chianti: http://www.labottegadigiovannino.it/osteria_e.html - het kleine barretje in Lecchi in Chianti met ernaast de lokale supermercato

Pros Very clean. Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful, tranquil location. Friendly, helpful proprietor. Particularly enjoyed an evening wine-tasting with Daniella Bencini, the proprietor.
Cons There wasn't anything that I didn't like, but it is quite remote, so a car is a must!
Local attractions I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but it is in Lecchi and the chef's name is Simone. He is also the owner, the food was fantastic. I also really enjoyed visiting Radda and Castellina. Further afield I loved Siena.

Pros The location was excellent, beyond our expectations. It was very peaceful and Daniella was very friendly. Villa itself was built and furnished to a high standard. The villa is located in what we thought to be a perfect part of Chianti - closer to Sienna than Florence and with plenty of interesting towns and villages to visit within an hours drive.
Cons The sofa bed in the living area was a little uncomfortable and wasn't nice to relax on in the evening when it got a bit chilly out, but this is only a minor complaint.
Local attractions Loved Castello di Brolio castle (beautiful) and wineshop (fantastic wine!). Siena - beautiful and interesting city. Montefioralle - small but perfect.

Pros Het huisje ligt midden tussen de wijnranken en olijfbomen. Alles wat we nodig hebben is aanwezig. De slaapkamer is door de ligging half in de heuvel lekker koel. De ontvangst en heerlijke wijnproeverij zin hartverwarmend. Veel privacy en rust.
Wanneer de schemering valt hoor je wilde zwijnen, herten en allerlei andere dieren scharrelen tussen de bomen. En dat met een glas wijn uit 'eigen' boomgaard, heerlijk!
Local attractions Mooi wandelingen door de heuvels en wijnvelden. De ijssalon in Radda, met Wifi. San Gimignano, natuurlijk de steden Sienna en Florence (parkeren in een stadje langs de spoorlijn en dan met de trein naar Florence).

Pros This was our third visit, we love the quite tranquil setting and the wonderful warm welcome we recieve from Danielle and her family. The villa is very comfy and absolute spotless.
This year we had the pleasure of being there during the grape harvest, was great to see the start of the process that makes the tasty wine.
Danielle has an amazing new cellar for tasting her wine selection and offers tasty tuscan treats to acompany them.
Choose this villa you will not be dissapointed, it is GREAT.
Cons Going home
Local attractions We loved going for our morning coffee in the cafe in Lecce, we had lunch there as well which was really tasty. We used the small grocery store next door as well, lovely friendly service and very fresh produce. My husbands favorite place was Daniella's cellar tasting her wine, she spoils him. Pizza Pie in Radda is a small restaurant that makes yummy pizzas made for two, you need to be hungry as they are big.

Wat waren de hoogtepunten van uw vakantie? wijn- en olie proeven bij Daniela; buiten ontbijten in de zon, met alleen vogelgeluiden in de omgeving; de wandelingen in de omgeving (een hiervan uit de To Tuscany informatie map in het huisje)
Wat vond u in het algemeen van uw vakantiehuis?    We vonden Girasole di Ama een geweldig huisje. Het is gezellig ingericht, van alle gemakken voorzien en ligt op een prachtige (midden tussen de olijfbomen en druivenranken) en rustige locatie. Daniela is een hartelijke gastvrouw die ons gastvrij ontving. Ze heeft ons van alles verteld over olijfolie en chianti
Hebt u nog onaangename verrassingen meegemaakt? nee

What were the highlights of your holiday? Waiting for the wild boar to run through the vineyard every night, mummy boar and her babies. Also the fantastic lightning storm that we watched from the terrace for more than two hours.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    It was fantastically clean and Daniela the owner was an absolute delight she welcomed us from the moment we arrived and my husband made himself very comfortable on her terrace sampling her wines, myself preferred the Vin Santo. Daniela had added little touches such as suppling washing powder and toilet paper as well as leaving water and wine in the fridge. You could tell she is very proud of Girasole.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Our second villa being double booked but it turned out better as we were able to return to Girasole.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Girasole is a fantastic place to spend some quality time relaxing and we intend to return there next year.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The scenery - particularly around Chianti.
The food was great. Loved that we were only 5 minutes to the local resturant.
The people were more than friendly.

Daniela was an excellent host. It was mentioned that her English was limited - we found her quite easy to speak with and understand.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? No
Do you have any other comments? We found Griaole di Ama the perfect size for two.
Loved the fact that we were on our own but knew that the family were just near by if we needed anything.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die sonnigen, ruhigen Tage, das feine Essen, einfach alles, besonders unser hübsches Häuschen Girasole (Sonnenblume).
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Ein ausgesprochen schönes Plätzchen für Ruhe, Erholung, Ausflüge, Spaziergänge.
Wir wurden freundlich aufgenommen, dann aber, wie wir das auch ersehnten, ganz in Ruhe gelassen, am Ende der Ferien wurden wir nach nettem Gespräch wie Freunde verabschiedet.
Das Häuschen ist sauber und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht.
Der TV ist im Schlafzimmer, vielleicht nicht grad ideal für das wunderschöne, hohe Bett, er wär besser in der Stube/Küche.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Es gab Besuch von Käfern und Grashüpfern :-)
Im Garten Schnecken und Frösche, wir haben auch Schlangen gesehen :-)
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Wir würden gerne wieder im Girasole unsere Ferien verbringen und danken herzlich für die Freundlichkeit und dafür, dass diese Ferien uns immer in bester Erinnerung bleiben wird.
Liebe Grüsse

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die Touren nach Siena, San Giminiano und natürlich Florenz. Nach Florenz unbedingt Bahn ab Montevarchi benutzen ( einfache Fahrt = 4,20 €; das ist ein Viertel des DB-Preises!) und Zielbahnhof SMN in Florenz liegt optimal.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Das war wunderbar. Einschränkung: In der kompletten Küche fehlte der Backofen.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Die Insekten verschiedener Art (Skorpione, Tausendfüssler) im Bad waren gewöhnungsbedürftig, haben aber den Gesamteindruck nicht geschmälert.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? keine
