Villa Alessandra is a semi-detached villa about 1km from the town Cavriglia. This lovely Tuscan villa has been built with all the typical Tuscan characteristics and it is perfect for families with children.
The large, extremely well maintained garden has a private tennis court and large pool with excellent views. The garden is dotted with trees providing plenty of shade for the warmer days. It has views up the valley towards Florence on one side while the other side looks out towards Arezzo, with the mountains in the background.
Villa Alessandra is split level. The front of the villa has a pretty little furnished terrace which has fantastic views across the fields and towards Florence. The entrance is through a small courtyard.
On entering the living area is open with arches between the various parts. On one side is a small dining area with a wooden table and chairs for 4 people. Passing under an arch there is the lounge area which is furnished with a leather sofa, a couple of armchairs and several tables. This part of the room has a large fireplace with a glass front, ideal for cooler Tuscan evenings. From this side of the house there are three double wood and glass doors providing plenty of light and access to the garden.

Through another arch there is a larger dining area which has direct access to the kitchen. This area is furnished with a big table that has the typical Tuscan benches. Double doors lead from here to the front garden.
Through a door off the main dining room there is the spacious kitchen. It is well equipped with a large oven, gas hobs, fridge with freezer. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with 4 chairs. To one side, down some steps there is a storeroom with laundry facilities and an extra fridge/freezer. Double doors from the kitchen provide access to the furnished terrace with stone barbeque.
The bedrooms are all on the first floor. At the top of the stairs there is a small landing, off which there is a corridor to the right. From here there is access to two of the bedrooms. The first is a double bedroom which cannot be made into a twin. This room is furnished with a dresser and wardrobe, double doors open onto a Juliette balcony which looks out to the front of the villa. On one side of the bedroom is a small room with bunk beds, only suitable for  young children. This leads into the en-suite bathroom with shower.

At the end of the corridor there is a double bedroom which has access to the upper garden and pool area. The room is furnished with a wardrobe and dresser. This room can be made into a twin on request when booking.
Directly off the landing there is a triple bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. In the spacious room is a chest of drawers with mirror, large wardrobe and a sturdy cot. The windows look out to the back gardens of the villa. Next to this rooms is a bathroom with large hydromassage bath and handheld shower.

The fourth bedroom is also accessed from the landing. This is also a spacious triple bedroom with a traditional Tuscan wooden double bed and a simple single bed. There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers. A small en-suite bathroom with shower completes this bedroom.


The neighbouring villa is also rented to holidaymakers. Although Villa Alessandra is semi-detached there is privacy provided by a high hedge between the two properties.


The owners take great care of the villa and will be present to maintain the gardens, pool and answer any questions, although they only speak Italian.

Pros Die Villa ist sehr schön mit einem tollen Garten, liegt aber leider etwas abseits.
Local attractions Florenz ist sehr schön, aber Siena hat uns noch besser gefallen! Restaurants sind in der näheren Umgebung leider nicht vorhanden.

Pros The villa was very well equipped. The outdoor areas were excellent and lovely. The linens were fresh and plentiful. We were greeted by the key holder, who, although he did not speak English, had arranged to have someone (his son?) who did arrive very shortly after our arrival, which made the check-in and check-out process much easier. All the facilities (keys. locks, heat, etc.) were well-explained. It was very nice of them to leave us a bottle of their wine and their olive oil.
Cons One of the showers did not have any shower curtains, which made a wet mess every time it was used..
Local attractions Our first evening, we went into Cavriglia and ate at Papposileno, which was excellent. We did not really explore the town of Cavriglia until near the end of our stay, but we would recommend walking around Cavriglia on the first week-day of your rental to learn the available facilities. There is a Coop, a gourmet deli, a very good pizza place (carry-out), a gelato shop, in addition to Pappoliseno, which is right in town.

Cons WE GOT A VERY POOR WELCOME. WE GOT TO THE VILLA& NO ONE WAS THERE. WHEN THE RESPRESENTATIVE CAME SHE SPOKE NO ENGLISH, WE DON'T SPEAK ITIALIAN & SHE COULDN'T UNDERSTAND US. WE ENDED UP GOING TO THE NEXT VILLA FOR HELP IN GETTING THE HEAT ON. THE NIGHT THE REPRESENTATIVE CAME TO PICK UP THE KEYS SHE ENTERED FROM THE BACK, NOT THE FRONT DOOR.

Pros Grote ruime villa , met ruime kamers en badkamers. Prachtige grote onderhouden tuin met zwembad en een knap uitzicht over de vallei. Tevens mochten we ook gebruik maken van de moestuin en kruidentuin , dagelijks heerlijke verse sla, tomaten , courgette's enz..... De buiten Pizza oven en BBQ hebben we ook meermaals gebruikt
Cons /
Local attractions Deze villa is rustig gelegen en is een ideale uitvalbasis om de streek te verkennen, in een straal van zowat 50 a 60 km bevinden zich de steden Florence , Siena , Arezzo en de mooie route door de Chianti streek , die ja langs de dorpjes als , Castellina in Chianti , Rada in Chianti en Greve in Chianti laten wegdromen , Villa Allesandra is echt een aanrader.

Pros We loved everything - the lovely villa, the beautiful property with the vegetable garden/olive trees/spacious grounds/patio and outdoor pizza oven, the romantic views, the sound of the Cavriglia bells in the morning, the kind owners, our wonderful liaison Lorenzo, the georgeous countryside within close proximity, the nearby towns. We felt very well taken care of during our stay.
Cons We stayed at Villa Alessandra in December - we had concerns about the gas bill. Because of our lack of use, consequently we were cold. However, we enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace in the evenings.
Local attractions Lorena and Lorenzo's fabulous shop, Gastronomia Enoteca, in Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni. A most special wine shop - Accademia del Buon Gusto di Stefano Salvadori, Panzano in Chianti. The best gelateria in the Chianti region - l' Antica Delizia, Castellini in Chianti. Wonderful restaurant - le del Chianti, Radda in Chianti. And, of course, Dario Cecchini's butcher shop and restaurant (Mac Dario), Panzano in Chianti. We will definitely visit all of these locations when we someday return.

Pros Die Villa ist top ausgestattet und lässt keine Wünsche aus.
Für uns 2 Familien mit insgesamt 7 Kinder einen Traum zum verweilen und sich im und ums Haus vom Alltag zu erholen.
Die Besitzer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Cons Die Lage ist leider nicht die schönste. Der Arno und die künstlichen Seen sind durch die Industrie mit ihrer Vielzahl von massiven Fabriken gekennzeichnet und keinen Ort zum Verweilen.
Local attractions Sobald man Richtung Siena fährt gelangt man zu den typischen toskanischen Landschaften. Da gibt es sehr schöne kleine Dörfer wie z.B. Radda in Chianti oder Castellina in Chianti.
