Calafralina is a pretty Tuscan villa located in the heart of the Chianti halfway between Castellina in Chianti and Radda in Chianti. It is divided into several cottages around a central communal building.
Surrounding the little Tuscan cottages is a large garden simply maintained with an orchard, olive grove and some large trees. To one side of a large grassy area is a pool overlooking stunning views. The pool is fenced with a modest fence.
The main living area is a large stone building with huge glass windows and doors on three sides making it an incredibly bright room and providing it with the effect of being outside amongst the trees that surround it. Outside, shaded by the trees is a wooden table with benches to eat al fresco if desired.
Inside is paved with traditional terracotta tiles and has a high pitched roof with wooden beams and terracotta tiles. To one side is a large modern angle sofa with a second two seater sofa.
In the centre of this light filled room is an iron dining table with glass top, surrounded by cushioned iron chairs. To one side is a fireplace which also acts as a barbeque.
To the back of the room is the small kitchen. It's fully equipped with gas hobs, oven, dishwasher and an American style fridge with separate freezer compartment. Behind this is the laundry room.
The first of the other three buildings that make up the property is attached to the back of the communal building. It's composed of a spacious bedroom with a high ceiling. The room is with an iron double bed which can be divided into two singles. To one side of the room is a large wardrobe and a couple of armchairs. En-suite is a small bathroom with shower.
The second cottage is approximately 30metres away from the communal area, and a few steps away from the pool. It's a typical Tuscan stone cottage. It is not overly bright but is a lovely romantic cottage. There is a pretty, double iron bed, large wardrobe and an armchair. En-suite is a small bathroom with open shower.
The last three bedrooms are all part of a single building, next to the communal area. The building is on a sloped part of the land and has a large terrace above it, accessible from the higher part of the slope.
The bedrooms are all independently accessed from the garden, onto which a glass door opens. There are no other windows in the rooms. Each has a simple en-suite bathroom with shower. Each room is connected to fresh air ventilation system.

These modern three bedrooms are identically furnished with a double bed, armchair and a writing desk with chair. They all have a built-in wardrobe.
Note this Tuscan villa is recommended for the warmer months as there is  no direct access to it from the bedrooms without crossing the garden.

The owner has a private holiday villa on the property, to the back of  Calafralina, he rarely uses his villa.

The pool is reserved for the use of guests only and is not used by the owner.

The cottage with the 5th bedroom is not indicated in the floor plans

Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Tea and coffee facilities are available in every bedroom.

There is air-conditioning available in the two double bedrooms (the annex and the bedroom overlooking the pool), all other bedrooms have a natural air conditioning system due to the water well.

Availability in this villa needs to be checked with the owner before a booking can be confirmed.

Pool Info

The pool is located at the end of the simply maintained garden. It is in an are which has full sun making it the ideal place to relax and soak up the warm Tuscan sun. Around the pool is a terracotta tiled deck dotted with sun beds and a couple of umbrellas.
From this area of the property there are fantastic views over the hedge which borders the grounds. The pool itself is fenced with a temporary structure making it safe for when children are present in the group or if pets are travelling.

Site exceptionnel de beauté et de charme, idéalement placé pour rayonner sur les villes et villages de Toscane.
Un aménagement général (séjour et pièces de nuit éclatés et répartis sur le site) dans une très grande propriété très arborée permettant à la fois la convivialité générale et l'indépendance de chacun et de plus une piscine de rêve dominant un paysage enchanteur. Des aménagements divers bien pensés ( terrain de boules, Coin Barbecue) d'autres exotiques et animés ( chenil, poulailler) ajoutent à ce charme général.
Seule petite ombre au tableau quelques détails domestiques, matériel de cuisine fatigué( cuisinière, lave vaisselle, machine à café ) mais surtout une table et des chaises de séjour étudiées pour le décor, mais pas du tout pour une vie quotidienne à 9 ou 10.



Local attractions A quelques kilomètres Castellina et Radda sont de très jolis et très pittoresques villages Toscan qu'il est très agréable de fréquenter au quotidien, mais que dire de la beauté des paysages qui agrémentent les trajets pour se rendre sur tous les sites plus merveilleux les uns que les autres, Sienne, Volterra, San Gémignano, Florence...La réserve de sites à découvrir nécessiterait plusieurs séjours

Die Anlage hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen --- lediglich die Ausstattung könnte mal aufgefrischt werden ( Badezimmer, Tische und Stühle im Essbereich...)
Auch sollte die Elektrik / Außenbeleuchtung von einem Fachmann instandgesetzt werden ( abends sehr dunkel !)
Local attractions Radda ist als kurzer Anlaufpunkt super ------------ Alles da!

We liked the location of the villa and the facilities, especially the fire pit, we were able to cook ourselves a lovely dinner on it. We liked the separation of the bedrooms, we were able to all have our own space.
We felt that the furniture in the living area was not very comfortable, the dining room table was too big for the space, and that we weren't told the dishwasher wasn't working properly and we got a few electric shocks off it. A lot of the outside lighting was not working and the pool needed a bit of maintenance.
Local attractions We found most of the restaurants were good and the vineyards. The local deli was nice.

Unfortunately, the dishwasher did have a problem - the owner has reported that it was checked and fixed and is now working fine. The pool is maintained every two days. The external lights are set to switch on automatically at twilight. If they are switched off by mistake from the inside, they will not come on.

Situation excellente au milieu du Chianti, proche des villes d'art. Vue magnifique de la villa, grand terrain arboré, superbe piscine, au calme. Chambres sympas et bien equipees. L'aide constante de Stefano (le jardinier)
Quelques equipements qui commencent a dater (piste petanque, table ping pong, frigo...)

Le calme est magnifique. Les chambres et lits tres confortable. Le salon superbe, aussi le barbecue et la piscine. Stefano est tres gentil et il nous a aide beaucoup chaque jour. Le meme avec Monica mais on l'a vu seulement on arrivant et quand nous sommes partis.
Le parc et le jardin nous ont beaucoup plait et aussi les chiens.
C'est dommage que la cuisine est si petite. Pour preparer tous les repas pour 10 personne etait tres difficile. Aussi il n'y a pas des toilettes dans le batiment principal donc il fallait toujours rejoindre nos chambres pour chercher la salle de bains. C'etait particulierement difficile pour le couple restant dans la cabine dans le jardin.
Il faut avertir le proprieter qu'il y a besoin des lumieres le long de la pente entre le salon et les chambres. C'est dangereux pendant la soirée ou on peut rien voir et quelqu'un a tombe du mur pendant notre sejour.
Local attractions Pour la plus part on a mange au villa.

The location is stunning. Set in the Tuscan Hills and the site containing a small vineyard together with olive, lemon and fig trees, it was a delight. I was slightly concerned the web site photos may be a little out of date and possibly even "guilding the lily" but am very pleased to say the reality even exceeded our expectations. The people in shops and restaurants in Radda could not have been more helpful and tolerated me murdering their beautiful language. Overall the holiday was fabulous. Great weather, great company and overall the villa complex is stunning.
The two bedrooms, one adjoining the main building together with the small chalet-type room down close to the pool. need some air-conditioning. Otherwise, outstanding.
Local attractions Siena and San Gimignano are a must. We dined in two restaurants in Radda. Both were wonderful.
