Casafoso, Radda in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Made for two, Casafoso opens the door to the heart of Chianti. Lying immediately south of the hilltop town of Radda, this small cottage will give you a real taste of the wine-producing region. A short walk uphill brings you to the quiet but charming settlement, which has a good restaurant on most corners. Set into the hillside – so much so that a picturesque piece of rock protrudes into the back of the lounge – Casafoso sits to one side of the owner’s villa in neat, fenced grounds overlooking local vineyards and olive-clad fields.

The accommodation, within one two-storey space, is homely and simple. A mezzanine-level bedroom, under a traditional beamed ceiling, maximizes the space available. A small terrace immediately outside is ideal for gently shaded meals. The owners make occasional use of the substantial private swimming pool and surrounding sun deck but it is largely yours. When you get tired of pretending to be a local in the nearby villages, Siena and San Gimignano are within easy reach, with Florence a little further.

Our Thoughts
Access to Chianti off the beaten track, potted lemon trees by the large pool, the sun, the welcome – these are just some of the reasons why we think this villa is so memorable. We like the feeling of space afforded by the arrangement of the bedroom on a mezzanine level. But most of all this is a great base for mixing up laid-back local life and Sienese sophistication.

Notes
One bedroom. One bathroom. There is no heating in the villa apart from the open fire.
The village hosts a lively festival during the last weekend in August – avoid it or join in the fun. Despite the villa’s proximity to the owner’s home, guests have said they did not feel intruded upon.
Approach road: Paved road

Large and surrounded by a stone-flagged, furnished terrace, the pool is a short walk from the cottage, across the owners’ well-kept garden. The water is accessed via ladder steps at the shallow end. The pool is 14x7 metres and 0.9-1.6metres deep. It's open from mid-May to mid-September, weather permitting.

Wunderschöne Lage mit Blick von der Terrasse auf die Weinberge und das Tal. Der Pool großzügig, sauber, mit Zitronenbäumchen umrahmt und nur für uns allein. Das Häuschen war gemütlich eingerichtet mit einer großzügigen Treppe zum offenen Schlafraum im oberen Bereich. Es gab eine Kochzeile, Kühlschrank, Kaffeemaschine und für kühlere Abende eine kl. Elektroheizung. Der Empfang war nett und der Hausverwalter jederzeit erreichbar und ansprechbar. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.Das Bad bekannterweise sehr klein und etwas verbesserungswürdig. :-)
Local attractions Nach einem 10 minütige, etwas steilen Weg zu Fuß erreicht man den Ort Radda mit kleinen Geschäften und Lokalen. Empfehlenswert die Pizza für 2 im Lokal Pizza Pie. Leckere lokale Spezialitäten mit Gelegenheit dort auch den Chianti zu genießen ebenfalls an der Hauptstrasse. In der Umgebung liegen kleine Weingüter zum Essen und Verweilen. Ebenfalls empfehlenswert:- ein Abstecher nach San Gimignano; -der Parco Sculture in der Nähe von Pievasciata; -eine außergewöhnliche Weinprobe bei Stefano Salvadori in Panzano in Chianti; -Volpaia = 40-Einwohner-Weiler mit 7 Weinkellern; Siena und wer mag das touristenlastige Florenz...:-)
