We took our children and grandchildren to Casale Cipressi. The villa was everything we hoped for, beautifully furnished and equipped. The view was amazing in a beautiful peaceful location reached by a 1 mile track. It was however close to Castellina for shops and restaurants. The owner, Nik, was very welcoming and helpful. Even though the weather was mixed we had a wonderful time. We needed the patio heater at night - middle of June. We would all like to go again.

What a magnificent house!!

The location of the villa is simply superb, amazing views across the valley and a sense of real isolation. I was travelling with my parents, sisters family with three kids and myself and the villa comfortably housed us all. It was great to have two floors so the kids could go downstairs if the adults were up late. The open fire was simply divine and a real treat. We spent many hours playing backgammon and drinking wine in front of the open flames.

My favourite spot of the house was the outdoor seating area with spectacular views across the valley. There is an outdoor heater which was lovely for the cool nights. I also loved all the different seating areas/dining tables which allowed us to eat in different spots according to the weather. Nik, the home owner, met us and gave us a very detailed explanation of all the features of the house and he was very good at staying in touch and answering our questions.

We made great use of the sauna, pool and ping pong table and walked into Castellina, the local village every other day. The gelato shop is sensational! The cleaner was greatly appreciated and did a fantastic job, it certainly made our stay very easy.
Only a couple of very small things. The toaster is a bit spasmodic but we just used the grill in the oven. Also in the bathroom downstairs we got water everywhere as there is no shower curtain, that might be an Italian thing.
Local attractions We ate at couple of restaurants in town though can't remember the names. The pizza restaurant in the square was great. We went to most of the stores in town and bought wine, panforte and almond biscuits every other day. The stores towards the bottom of the square were great. the store owners were very friendly. San Gimignano is wonderful and definitely worth a visit as is Radda. We did a Chianti tour with Franco Fadda tours who picked us up from the villa which was excellent as we all could enjoy the wine. Siena and Florence are both fantastic though if you are driving be aware of the city zones which can only be entered if you have a permit. Florence really needs a couple of days as there is so much to see.

De prachtige perfecte ligging en uitstraling zijn zeer authentiek. Prima uitvalsbasis voor o.a Siena, Florence, San Gimignano en andere steden in de omgeving. Prachtige tuin met uitzicht wat nooit gaat vervelen, niet overdag, niet in de schemer en nacht. Goed uitgeruste keuken inclusief buiten keuken.
Schoonmaak 3 x per week, zeer gerieflijk, niet echt nodig, maar wel plezierig.
Zwembad.
Het is zo mooi dat je eigenlijk geen excursies moet maken en alleen maar moet gaan genieten van de locatie. Wij waren er met 6 volwassenen en 1 peuter en 2 baby's. Ook voor hen was het perfect.

De derde badkamer stelt niets voor en de badkamer beneden is gedateerd.
Een koffiemachine zou een toegevoegde waarde hebben.
Tuinmeubelen zijn gerieflijk, maar oud.

Beautiful villa with a lovely outlook. Good sense of character. Huge range of facilities, especially places to eat
Ideally, we would have had en-suite facilities, though this was difficult because of the villa lay-out. Cold evenings caught us by surprise, but that's ur fault for choosing to take a holiday in mid-April
Local attractions We enjoyed Castellina-in-Chianti, the facilities in (including a lovely restaurant, Tre Porti) and the local walks to it. Further afield, we loved Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Greve-in-Chianti and, of course, Florence

The owner has informed us that they have made improvements to the approach road. It is now in very good condition. It has been tested with a low sports car with no problems. They have added another teapot. There are 4 different coffee makers in this villa.

The villa is very well equipped and the cleaning lady is superb at keeping everything neat and clean. The beds are comfortable. The pool and sauna are added treats and the washing machine was a real bonus with 3 young children. The villa is 45 minutes from Florence and Siena and 7 minutes from Castellina in Chianti, a charming town with a number of very good restaurants, grocery store, and a number of other stores. The view from the terrace is spectacular. Loved having our meals outside with views of the valley and towns in the distance. The owner Nik was extremely helpful. We enjoyed it all.
The road into Casale Cipressi is awful. It takes 5 to 6 minutes to drive 1.7 km. and is a concern each time because on each trip you hit the bottom and sides of your car no matter how careful you are. The road really should be repaired.
It may have been the year, as Tuscany had a lot of rain in 2014, but the bugs, especially the horse/deer flies that bite were awful. It really affected our ability to enjoy the pool in late afternoons. Installed bug deterrents inside and that worked but the bugs were awful and caused considerable discomfort for my daughter-in-law who was badly bitten.
Local attractions We enjoyed Tre Porte, Il Torre, Albergaccio di Castellina and the restaurant at the Hotel Palazzo Squarcialupi, where there was also excellent entertainment, We visited most of the nearby villages including Panzano for the Sunday market, Montereggioni, which was great fun for the children who enjoyed climbing the walls and dressing up in the museum. Rada was charming and we made many trips to both Siena and Florence. San Gimignano and Colle di Val Elsa are close and great day trips.

The villa is very secluded and private and the views from it are beautiful and tranquil. It is very spacious and there are lots of nice spaces for dining and chilling. The pool is excellent for an adult party (no shallow end). The kitchen is mostly well equipped, and overall the equipment and facilities at the villa are very good. The owner was very helpful, efficient and pleasant to deal with.
The access track is very, very rough and the novelty of bumping along it for 15 minutes every time we left or returned to the villa really did wear off. By the end of the week we were resentful of the discomfort and the wasted time. We would not book the villa again for this reason. More minor points: whilst traditional and elderly furniture is fine in most cases, the mattresses were all showing their age too and not that comfortable. Overall the kitchen was better equipped than many holiday villas, but a villa intended for 8 or 9 people needs more than one teapot and one small cafetiere!
Local attractions We had a very good meal at the A Torre restaurant in Castellina itself. Radda and Panzano are both pretty towns and worth a visit (as well as the obvious attractions at Siena, San Gimignano and Monterrigione). The old town at Colle di Val d'Elsa Alto took us completely by surprise, we thought it was delightful. We hired racing bikes from Gippo Bikes at Colle dVd'E, they were excellent to deal with and the bikes were perfect.

The owner plans to improve the road as soon as is possible. The power tripped during a thunderstorm and the water pump lost power at this stage too. The pump was switched back on immediately it was reported.

Casale Cipressi is exactly as advertised. It is a beautiful residence which sits atop a mountain with 360 degree views of the Tuscan countryside. The owner has embellished both the interior and the grounds with artifacts from his travel which makes the property more interesting. The villa is meticulously maintained.
The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of glassware to enjoy a variety of Tuscan wines. All the elements of sleeping and living comfort were good. The location of this villa is very private. It is accessed by a safe but rutted dirt road which will jostle you as you make the seven minute drive to the villa, rewarded when you arrive. The house has several routers inside and out but the wifi signal is weak.
We were out and about so we only met the cleaning lady on arrival. A sweet women she was very efficient in her responsibilities and we appreciated having her on Mon, Wed and Fri. Nikolaus, who is the owner, is a very nice man who makes himself accessible during your stay.
