Pros we loved everything about il boschetto! the villa is very clean, cozy and welcoming. it has plenty of room - we had a family of 5. the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to eat, drink, cook and serve with. all 3 bedrooms were good size with enough closet and drawer space. all 3 bathrooms made it much easier to get out in the morning- (2 showers and 1 bath). Renza met us there to give us keys and was extremely thorough and very helpful, also accommodating to our schedule. the indoor fireplace was wonderful as the evenings were a little chilly. it has an awesome balcony/deck with a stone wood burning bbq and oven. also plenty of spaces to sit and dine outside over looking rolling hills and vineyards. just a beautiful place to be!
Local attractions in Volpaia there is a bar/restaurant called Bar-Ucci. it was very good and the owner also cook Paula was so freindly and very entertaining. also in Radda we ate at La Botte Di Bacco- very good as well. we visited Florence, Siena and Sangimignano -don't miss these towns - worth the drive.

The kitchen was really well stocked with basic foods. The owner was very obliging. The pool is a good size and June is a good time to visit .

Pros This was the second time we stayed at this excellent, spotless villa. Our friendly hostess worked hard in the beautiful sunshine to make us welcome from the very outset and we enjoyed the homegrown produce. It's a superb home from home, well it's better than home. My wife is a very light sleeper who always brings earplugs on holiday anyway. She says a little bit of passing noise from traffic or neighbours tending their vines is not going to put her off this lovely place. Our family group varied from sun worshippers to those who prefer a whiter shade of pale and this villa had outside areas which catered for all. Our hostess made sure the pool was welcoming from early morning to late at night. The kitchen is very well equipped for those who want to try their hand cooking the excellent local produce. The recent addition of a dishwasher means that at night the whole family can relax outside watching the sun go down over the fields. Keen photographers would never really need to leave the villa!
Cons Leaving!!
Local attractions The villa is about 1km from the small town of Radda with it's charming views and eateries which range in price to suit all. Castellina is about 15 minutes drive and again has a good range of eating places. Family members who didn't want to travel far were quite happy in these towns. If you like local markets, check out Poggibonsi's (@ 30km) on a Tuesday. Take it in during the morning on the way to Sienna (30km) perhaps. We were prepared to travel longer distances and went to Florence by train and Assisi by car. Both of these were early starts, but well worth it. Radda has a small supermarket, Poggibonsi has both Coop and Pam. San Gimignano (@40km) is very touristy but worth it for eating, drinking and touristy shopping.

Pros Gefallen hat das das Haus sehr gut eingerichtet war wie z.B. Toaster, Geschirrspühlmaschine bis hin zur Waschmaschine für Kleidung. Ebenfalls war schön das das Haus außerhalb des Ortes war, somit sehr ruhig.
Was nicht immer tatsächlich funktioniert in Italien ist das WLAN, hier jedoch perfekt funktionierte.

Pros Die Lage in der Nähe zu Radda. Leider konnte man nicht bis dort spazieren gehen - es sei denn entlang der stark befahrenen Straße. Sehr hilfsbereits waren die Vermieter. Pool und Anlage wurden 2 tägig gesäubert.
Cons Der Pool war etwas zu kalt, ca. 21 Grd. Lag wohl daran, dass nur die Morgensonne ihn aufwärmen konnte.
Local attractions Sehr schön war der Besuch von Volpaia - auch das dortige Restaurant mit seiner Außengastronomie hat uns gut gefallen. Pizza kann man gut in Radda essen - Name habe ich vergessen, war auf der Hauptstr. Ortseingang von Greve aus kommend.

Pros Very comfortable villa in a wonderful location with magnificent views. The villa is very well equipped with ample kitchen utensils, crockery, bedding, towels etc.. There is a very good selection of outside seating and sun loungers to catch the sun in different areas. The pool is a good size for a real swim. Radda village, a couple of minutes drive away, has some excellent restaurants and shops selling everything for catering at home.
Cons The en suite bedroom is quite close to the road and at times at night the traffic was noisy. Our preference would be for softer beds.
Local attractions We loved the wine tasting at Castello di Ama and Volpaia. La Forchetta is a restaurant with a good, well priced menu. Pizza Pie has tasty pizzas for two served on large wooden platters. La Boca has excellent food and service and is a little more expensive.
