From the living area there is a corridor, off which there are the bedrooms and bathroom. The bathroom is a narrow room with shower. Next to the bathroom is a single or twin room. This room is spacious enough to accommodate two beds. It is normaly set up as a single with the second single bed added as a pullout for groups of 4. The room has a lovely french window with great views of the surrounding countryside.


The master bedroom is at the end of the hall, it is a large room with an iron double bed, wardrobe and pretty views from the window.

Pros Le calme du village et la grande piscine
Cons La terrasse des voisins donne au dessus des chambres et l'on entend les bruits des chaises (pas du tout les voix). La terrasse n'est pas équipée de parasol (plutôt pénalisant en Toscane ou mois d'aout). Il n'a donc pas été possible de déjeuner dehors. La location ne comprenait qu'un petit verre à vin, ce qui n'est pas tout à fait conforme à l'idée que l'on se fait d'un séjour dans le pays du Chianti.
Local attractions Restaurant la Grotta di San Francesco à Sienne. On y dine pour 10€ (couverts et service compris) avec une entrée, un plat de pâtes et un grand verre de vin ou une 1/2 bouteille d'eau. La qualité des produits est excellente et les portions sont très généreuses. L'aménagement du restaurant est de bon gout. Le reste du cadre du restaurant n'est pas exceptionnel, mais il fait bon dans la grotte. Il est tout proche du parking principal lorsque l'on vient de Montefienali. Le service est rapide et très sympathique, même si le couple au service ne parle pas très bien anglais.

Pros Sehr unkomplizieter und erholsamer Urlaub.
Cons Wir haben selbstverständlich guten Chianti in der Umgebung gekauft und getrunken. Leider gab es keine Weingläser im Haushalt.
Local attractions In Radda war es schön zum bummeln. In der Bar an der Piazza gibt es gute kleine Gerichte. Sehr gut hat es uns in der Fattoria Castello di Starda gefallen und geschmeckt. Mit den Kindern waren die Besichtigung der Burgen Brolio und Meleto sehr spannend und zu empfehlen.
