Calafralina, Radda in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Calafralina is a wonderful stone villa set in the heart of Chianti. Comprising a main house and a cluster of cottages, it offers sophisticated lodgings best suited to five couples who wish to explore wine country, or mixed groups with older children. Its position, halfway between the pretty towns of Castellina and Radda, means you will have the chance to sample a taste of the local lifestyle.

The main villa houses a large, comfortable open-plan living and dining area with full-height modern windows and doors to the garden on three sides. The comfy bedrooms are housed in three cottages, each with direct access from the garden, ensuring independence and privacy. Outside, the pretty walled patio shaded by olive trees is just perfect for an al-fresco dinner. The expansive gardens, including an orchard and an olive grove, feature mature trees offering shade, while the ping-pong table and bocce court will keep everyone amused. And the large private pool, set in its own lawned area, must be one of the best places to pull up a lounger and contemplate the gorgeous views.

Our Thoughts
This is a truly wonderful villa – there’s just something about the living-dining area, with its three sides of glass, that puts guests among the trees and really brings the outside in. There’s so much space, too, and the arrangement across four buildings means it’s ideal for a group of couples, who want to socialise but to be able to retreat to an independent space.

Notes
The two terracotta ceiling tiled bedrooms have tradition air conditioning units while the other three have air cooling systems. All bedrooms have tea and coffee-making facilities and are independently accessed from the garden via glass doors.This villa is recommended for the warmer months because there is no direct access between the various buildings without crossing the garden. The owner has a private holiday villa on the property, but rarely uses it. The caretaker is at guests disposal every day, and takes care of the garden, vegetables and chicken coop. He is happy to provide vegetables and eggs to guests and offer assistance if needed. There is a friendly medium size male dog that lives in the owner's private area which will be kept away from guests if required.

The pool is reserved for guests only.

Der Empfang war sehr herzlich und den feinen Kuchen haben wir sehr geschätzt,da es bei unserer Ankunft in strömen
geregnet hat.Da wir etwas zu früh waren durften wir schon in den Wohnbereich das fanden wir sehr Grosszügig der Kinder wegen..Stefano die gute Seele des Hauses war stets vor Ort wenn wir etwas brauchten.Eine sehr nette Person
Kinderliebend und sehr Hilfsbereit.Die Kinder genossen es mit ihm die Hühner zu füttern und tollten mit dem Hund
Fido herum.Das Anwesen ist sehr toll es fehlt an nichts sehr gut ausgestattet und sauber.Von der Vermittlung und Schlüsselhalterin bis zum Hausmeister alle überaus hilfsbereit und nett.Wir waren mit unsren Kindern und Enkelkindern
in den Ferien.Es war einfach sehr schön wir werden sicher wieder kommen.Vielen herzlichen Dank an alle.Das Haus
ist ein Schönwetter Haus an regnerischen Tagen etwas mühsam da man immer über den Aussenbereich muss
Local attractions Wir haben verschiedene Stätde besucht.Siena.Florenz,Montepulciano sehr gute Confiserie und Café San Giminagno sehr schön zum Lädele,gute Restaurants,Greve sehr schön gemütlicher Dorfplatz und gute Restaurants. Ristorante Lamole di lamole in Lamole am schönsten Punkt der Toscana unbeschreiblicher Sonnenuntergang das muss man einmal gesehen haben.Das Essen ist immer noch so gut wie vor 25 Jahren ein grosses Kompliment. Die Gegend ist einfach Toll offen für alle Aktivitäten.
