Lo Spicchio is a fantastic villa furnished to a high standard in the heart of the Chianti, just a few minutes drive from Radda in Chianti. It is surrounded by excellent views of the rolling Tuscan hills covered in vineyards and olive groves. To the back of the villa there is a small hamlet.
The large gardens are well maintained with English lawns and plenty of local plants, including lavander, rosemary, cypress trees and roses. Next to the villa, surrounded by a terracotta deck is the infinity pool, which looks out towards the breathtaking views.
From the pool area several steps lead down to a pretty terrace paved in terracotta and shaded by a wood and terracotta roof. This has an iron table with six chairs, to one side is an iron bench with cushions. Against a wall is another table, topped with marble, perfect for preparations. Here there are two barbeques, one gas powered the other wood powered. The terrace looks out to the Chianti hills and views. Large, arched glass and wood doors, protected by an iron gate, lead into the Tuscan villa.
Inside is a bright, spacious lounge, tiled with traditional Tuscan terracotta and with the typical ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta. To one side is a large fireplace with a glass front, for a welcoming fire for the cooler nights. The room is furnished with two large leather sofas and an armchair around a wood and glass coffee table. A wooden staircase leads to the upper floors.
Half way up the stairs is an arched entrance to the kitchen. Going up to the top of the stairs is a small corridor. Off this is a large double bedroom with plenty of space. It is furnished with a big wardrobe, chest of drawers, an armchair and a wooden bench with cushions. The floor is with glazed terracotta, making this a cosy room in the typical Tuscan style. Off the room is a large en-suite bathroom with tub, that also has a shower head however there is no shower curtain.
Entering the well equipped kitchen, to the right there is the cooking area, which has a large marble topped island for work space. Below the windows is further marbled work space and a marble sink. Completing this area is an oven, gas hobs, fridge with separate freezer and a glass fronted fireplace.
The dining area is to the other side of the room. There is a beautiful oval, wooden table surrounded by six covered, comfortable chairs. The entire room is bright and spacious, with a high ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta.
A glass and wood door leads out to a second covered terrace. It is furnished with a large wooden table and iron chairs. To one side are two comfortable, external armchairs. The terrace is paved in old, uneven terracotta tiles. It opens out to the manicured garden.

To the back of the kitchen is a small corridor. On the left there is a bathroom with shower. To the right is a narrow twin bedroom, which has an armchair with footstool and wardrobe. Doors provide access to the garden. This room cannot be made into a double.
From the corridor, directly in front of the kitchen is a second double bedroom. The lower part of the room has a writing desk with chair and a wardrobe. Stairs lead up to a mezzanine floor protected by an iron railing. On this floor there is a low double bed and a wardrobe with drawers along one wall. This part of the room has a low roof, in some parts it is about 1.5 metres.


The double rooms cannot be made into twins. The twin bedroom cannot be made into a double.

Pros Lo Spicchio ist sicher nicht eines der günstigsten häuser, aber jeden cent wert!
es war traumhaft, die lage, das haus, der garten, der pool, einfach alles. die raumaufteilung war für uns perfekt, da wir zu 5 unterwegs waren - ein paar ohne kinder, ein paar mit einer kleiner tochter. jeder hatte seinen privaten bereich und konnte auch mal ungestört sein.
aus unserer sicht sehr zu empfehlen!

Pros Tolle Lage, inmitten des Chianti-Gebietes mit tollem Blick übers Tal. Sehr schöner, gepflegter Garten. Wir hatten für 4 Abende den Koch aus Siena gebucht (Andrea, Il Fiasco), der sehr zu empfehlen ist.
Cons Der Pool musste am Anreisetag noch gereinigt werden und so konnten wir ihn erst 24 Std. später benutzen - für Kinder schwer zu verstehen. Die Schränke hatten zu wenig Kleiderbügel. Die Küche ist sehr klein.
Local attractions Castello di Ama -2 km entfernt. Ein fantastisches Weingut. Führung und Weinprobe sehr zu empfehlen. Restaurant Malborghetto in Lecchi - ausgezeichnete Küche mit hervorragendem Service (5 Min. mit dem Auto vom Haus entfernt). Das Städtchen Radda (7km entfernt) ist auch sehr hübsch, ebenso der kleine, idyllische Ort Volpaia (ca. 20 Min. entfernt) mit dem Restaurant La Bottega (Besitzerin: Gina Barruci), gegenüber die Bar Ucci und daneben die Enoteca, bei der es köstliche Weine gibt.

Pros This villa is stunning inside and out with decor of a very high standard. The pool is larger than typical villa pools both in length and depth which worked well for us. The gardens/grounds are impeccable and the location very private and peaceful.
Cons Whilst well kept the gardens are quite small and hilly, restricting the ability to play ball games with younger children for instance.

Pros Uns hat das Haus mit dem wunderschönen Garten und Pool sehr gut gefallen. Vor allem auch der tolle Blick in die Chianti Landschaft und die schönen Sonnenschirme und Liegen an den verschieden Sitzplätzen welche im ganzen Garten verteilt sind.
Alles war äußerst gepflegt. Auch der Pool wurde jeden Tag gesäubert.
Wir haben uns über die im Mietpreis enthaltene Putzhilfe sehr gefreut.
Die nette Besitzerin hat das Haus mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet.
Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet, allerdings ein bisschen klein.
An der einen oder anderen Stelle, so auch in der Küche, musste man sich dann etwas Platz verschaffen und "Deko" beiseite räumen.
Wir würden sehr gerne wieder hinfahren, allerdings wächst die Familie und so ist das Haus im nächsten Jahr zu klein.
Cons Die Betten waren extrem hart. Es wäre schön gewesen, wenn auf den sehr dekorativen Eisenstühlen Sitzpolster gewesen wären.

Pros Besonders schön ist der Garten, der Pool auch, welcher aber Anfang Juni noch sehr kalt war.
Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut, wie beschrieben, jede Menge Teller, Töpfe, Besteck...
Die Betten sind o.k.
Cons Generell ist es im Haus sehr finster, liegt an den kleinen Fenster, die auch noch verdunkelt sind. Vor allem im Bad war es viél zu dunkel, die kleine Lampe im Bad ist mehr Zierde als Lichtquelle. Die Handtücher hätten öfter getauscht werden müssen, die Mistkübel wurden praktisch nie entleert. Klopapier war auch aus. Die "Putzfrau" ist mehr für die Kontrolle und den Garten da. Dieser ist sehr gepflegt. Ab unserer Abreise war auf einmal ein zweiter Sonnenschirm vorhanden. Die angebotenen selbstprod. Weine sind mehr als überteuert 18,-- pro Fasche! Die Hausbesitzerin spricht wirklich nicht ein Wort englisch! Das Quartier zu finden ist eine Herausforderung, überhaupt nicht beschriftet, keine Hinweisschilder, nichts!

Pros There was just so much to like: the unique restoration of the villa and the attention to detail; the absolutely amazing pool and garden; the welcome pack; the bedding and the beds; the facilities available in the house and the absolutely amazing hospitality of the owner.
Cons I can honestly say there was nothing that we didn't like about the villa.
Local attractions Siena was wonderful with so many wonderful places to see in the City and great attractions. We really enjoyed being so close to Radda as it is a beautiful little village/town. There were so many shops in Radda that were fantastic value, particularly the shop with the beautiful soaps and essences of Italy. We didn't tend to eat out because part of the enjoyment of the holiday was being able to shop in the local markets and speciality stores and then cook in the wonderful villa.

Pros Wonderful charm & location. Lots of different outdoor eating areas.
Cons The pool, albeit beautiful, was terribly cold. We knew it wasn't heated but it was so cold we couldn't use it. This really put a dampner on our holiday and would mean we won't return.

Pros A beautiful location with views over rolling olive groves and vineyards; great out-door spaces so there was always somewhere to find shade, sun or breeze; a great pool; and a beautifully presented house. We loved it.
Cons If we were going to stay for longer I'd have liked a larger, better-lit kitchen, but it was perfectly good for our needs. I wish it was less expensive so we could come back more often, but you get what you pay for. I'm sure we'll come back one day.
Local attractions Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano, obviously not to be missed, but the nearby small old towns - Radda, Giole, La Castilla - were very attractive. We returned to Radda many times - they have several very good restaurants and a great alimentare / delicatessen.

Pros A beautiful home in wonderful countryside. The pool was a necessity in the July heat. We enjoyed the easy access to the surrounding villages and towns.
Local attractions I left an exercise book at the house with all our recommendations. Our American neighbor in Adine, who is a chef, advised on some great restaurants and vineyards. We tried them all in our 2 weeks at Lo Spicchio.

Pros Lo Spicchio est un puits d'harmonie au cœur du Chianti ! Goût et confort, l'intérieur de la villa est décoré avec un raffinement Toscan recherché. Le jardin est un Éden de fleurs et d'oliviers qui offre de nombreuses invitations au repos et à la méditation. La piscine à débordement est merveilleuse, bordée de cyprès et plongeant vers un panorama enchanteur. Quant à notre hôtesse, elle n'est que délicatesse, gentillesse et discrétion, bref ! Nous avons découvert notre RDV annuel de villégiature toscane !
Cons Rien !
