Il Casetto is a wonderful three storey traditional Tuscan villa with magnificent views in the heart of the Chianti. It is beautifully decorated in a rustic style with fantastic brushed oak ceilings and a mixture of stone and wooden floors. The Chianti town of Radda is only 6km away. There is easy access to Florence, Pisa and Siena.
Situated on the main terrace is the small but well maintained oval swimming pool. The pool is protected by a safety fence and offers the most beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding Chianti countryside and olive groves. Next to the pool is a furnished pergola complete with large table and eight chairs, perfect for dining al fresco while taking in the magnificent views.
There are two terraces at Il Casetto both of which offer splendid views. The first is the raised main terrace located next to the pool. It has fantastic views and is furnished with a wooden pergola with table and chairs for eight people. The second is slightly higher and is accessed  via a flight of stone steps or from the twin bedroom on the first floor. This terrace overlooks the pool below and has a small lawn area at the front.
Entry to the villa is from the front lawn into the spacious lounge. The lounge is full of natural light due to the three sets of French doors and is furnished with two matching triple sofas, a bookshelf,  wooden table, cabinet and an open fireplace. In one corner of the room is a flat screen television with satellite. Rustic double doors open into a small hallway with guest toilet, the hallway continues to a short flight of stone steps which lead up to a smaller lounge area.

To the left is an open archway that leads to the kitchen. Large arched glass doors open out onto the main terrace and outside dining area.
The kitchen is very characteristic and has been converted from the original storage cellar. It has a high stone vaulted ceiling and stone floor. There is  plenty of work and storage space available. At the end of the room is a large open fireplace that can be used for cooking. In the centre of the room is a lovely cooking island complete with oven and gas hobs.

Stay: July 2014
Pros The best kitchen kit I've ever encountered: sharp sharp Wusthoff knives, tonnes of pots, pans, (lovely bone china) crockery, cutlery, glasses. Huge fridge freezer, gas hobs, great washing machine. Nice big kitchen dining room table for rainy days.

Al fresco meals under cool, shady vine trellace with huge views over surrounding vineyards to Radda; fabulous sunbathing terrace with excellent sunloungers and umbrella for shade.

Lovely 20-minute stroll up dirt road to Volpaia for pre-dinner drinks or meals at the two restaurants.

Beautiful bathrooms and bedrooms, great showers

Kids loved Sky TV in very cool, comfy, spacious lounge.

Good WiFi in lounge
Cons Nothing!
Local attractions Radda: Sandy's bar for SUPERB ice creams; leather shoe/bag shop; good kitchen shop. Also an excellent wee Coop with very good deli. We cooked in the villa every night except one, when we ate at La Bottega in Volpaia, where the food was excellent (wild boar, rabbit, homemade pasta etc), but the service a bit poor. Loved having a drink at the bar in the square in Volpaia. Fun gardens/monastery tour at Badia di Coltibuono, with wine-tasting on 5pm tour Nice lunch/ice-cream/capuccino visits to Castellina and Greve
