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

Well positioned villa, close to attractive little town. Beautiful pool. Villa fittings and fixtures were a bit 'tired' and the bathroom was very cramped. No welcome pack or w/up liquid, clean dishcloth etc, which was disappointing.
Local attractions Lovely cafe opposite town square and nice restaurant at other end of town but we can't remember their names!

Das Häuschen liegt schön und ruhig. In 10 Gehminuten ist man in Radda. Die Besitzerfamilie ist sehr freundlich.
Der Schlafbereich auf der Galerie ist gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Nur sollten die Matratzen unbedingt erneuert werden. Die Küche ist sauber und gut ausgestattet.Das Sofa - naja - ... Das Badzimmer kann nicht als solches bezeichnet
werden! Viel zu klein, alt, und absolut kein Komfort.
Der 18 Meter Pool ! ist sauber und man hat ihn für sich allein.
Der Internetempfang funktionierte nur sehr mangelhaft, dieses Problem wird jedoch in nächster Zeit behoben werden.
Auch mit diesen "Mängeln" fühlten wir uns wohl in diesem toskanischen Häuschen.

Thank you for your review. The owner is sorry to hear the mattress was not as you would have preferred. It is a memory foam mattress and was purchased in 2015. Due to the size of the villa, there is no scope to make the bathroom any bigger. There was an issue with the internet but once the owner was informed it was resolved.

The hosts were friendly and welcoming and despite living next door we did not feel that our privacy or space was intruded upon.

The living areas were homely, clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.

The wet room and toilet were very cramped and required modernising but were as described and this did not detract from the overall charm of the accommodation which was set back into the bedrock, and incorporated as a feature in the interior. A comfortable kingsize bed with a good quality mosquito net is on a mezzanine floor which was essential.

With spacious grounds containing a large outdoor pool flanked by fruiting potted lemon trees we often found ourselves outside enjoying the sun and the view.

It is a short climb from Casafoso to the town which is very small and quiet with a good restaurant on every corner. It only took a few days to explore.
Local attractions Dante and Terrace restaurants, for service, scenery and good food at a reasonable price. Wine tasting in a local cantina served in the cellar passages of the town walls. Trips by car: If you’re planning to explore Tuscany by car we would recommend a more powerful vehicle as most country roads are steep, winding and narrow. Our compact hire car struggled carrying us and our luggage or shopping and had a low wheel base. As a destination San Gimignano was an amazing site and enough to keep you occupied. There are many great restaurants in San Gimignano, our favourite was Ristorante La Mangatoia. Be sure to try a glass of the famous white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano with the antipasti platter. We enjoyed exploring the walled medieval town at dawn and dusk more than during the heat of the day especially as the beautiful streets aren’t as crowded by day-trippers. For its beautiful architecture a day trip to Siena is essential. We’d recommend waking early to explore the city as it very quickly becomes crowded and hot.

Wer Erholung sucht ist hier genau richtig. Wir hatten einen sehr entspannten Urlaub mit Hund im Casafoso. Die Hausbesitzer und der Sohn sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Der Pool ist sehr schön und man kann hier die Aussicht und die Ruhe genießen. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Nur ein paar Gehminuten und man ist in Radda, hier findet man alles was man braucht.
Local attractions Ein Ausflug nach San Gimigano, Volterra und Siena sind zu empfehlen !

we really enjoyed it. very welcoming hosts. pool facilities were excellent. accommodation is a bit small with regard to kitchen workspace, etc but all the necessary facilities are there and we tended to be out sight seeing a lot of the time.
it was lovely to sit out on the terrace every morning and have our breakfast.

Local attractions We hired a car and did a fair bit of driving about. Nice meal and views from small hilltop hamlet called Volpaia only 15 minutes drive away from Casafoso. Able to get the bus ( very cheap ) from Radda to Florence ( 90 minutes ) and Siena ( 60 minutes ). Both beautiful cities. Also recommend visits to ancient towns of San Gimigiano and Monteriggioni but need a car for these.

We have just come back from spending a delightful week at Casafoso. The owners and their family were extremely welcoming and despite living next door, we did not feel that they intruded on our privacy. In fact it was beneficial that they were close at hand as they were immediately able to sort out a couple of small issues that we had.

The pool is huge, with the most wonderful vistas and was kept immaculately clean with the help of a small cleaning robot which we were asked to remove and put back at the end of each day when we had finished. This was no hardship as we found it quite fascinating to watch whilst it went about its business of cleaning the pool!

The location is excellent, just a short steep uphill walk into Radda where there was a good selection of restaurants and there is Co-op supermarket a 5 minute drive away.

The bathroom is tiny and rather outdated but this was outweighed by the overall wonderful rustic charm of the furnishings and the lovely iron bedstead with a beautiful bedspread that added to the effect. There was also an essential mosquito net above the bed.

We cooked several times there and although the facilities were a little basic, they were more than adequate for our needs. We enjoyed using the veranda area to eat outside and despite the property being close to the village, we found the location to be very peaceful.

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Casafoso.

The cottage is in a fantastic location, a 10min walk uphill to the lovely village of Radda, it's a very peaceful and private setting, with beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside from the terrace and garden where we enjoyed our breakfasts and some lunches of delicious cheeses and antipasto purchased from the local deli, The pool is beautifully clean with great views, The bathroom & kitchen are both very basic and very small, ,
Local attractions Radda is a lovely village within walking distance with a range of cafes , restaurants and wine tastings, The village of Volpaia is very close and worth a visit, Castello de Meleto is a beautiful place for wine tasting,, The towns of Castellina & Gaiole also worth visiting, Also great for day trips to Siena and Florence,

Ondanks het tegenvallende weer een heerlijke vakantie gehad. De locatie is werkelijk top. Echt een plek voor rustzoekers. De 2 oudere bewoners spreken alleen Italiaans, maar via de telefoon met is het contact met zoon Franco snel gelegd. Het huisje is basic maar alles was aanwezig. Het defecte broodrooster werd binnen een dag vervangen. De badkamer is inderdaad krap maar voor ons is een goed bed belangrijker en dat was prima. Het zwembad is echt geweldig. Kortom.... een aanrader.
