Resort: Casalta

Casalta is a finely restored Tuscan hamlet of 9 villas that maintains all its original characteristics, with well maintained, simple gardens of local plant, shrubs and herbs. It is located in the heart of the Chianti within easy reach of Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti.
The pool is located a few steps away from the villas and is protected by a beautiful stone wall to one side, while the other has towering cypress trees through which there are fantastic views of the Chianti hills covered in vineyards and olive groves.
The hamlet, once owned by Galileo Galilei, is composed of two buildings around a quaint, traditional stone courtyard in which there is a pizza oven. To one side is an independent cottage while near the pool is a second, small cottage with the laundry. In front of the laundry is a large, stone terrace furnished with tables and chairs for communal use.

Das Haus selbst ist sehr schön und entspricht den Beschreibungen im Internet. Grundsätzlich haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist sehr ruhig und man kann gut entspannen. Einen weiteren Urlaub könnte ich mir durchaus noch einmal vorstellen wenn die Zufahrt zum Anwesen verbessert wird. Die Anfahrt zum Anwesen über eine unbefestigte Straße (ca. 1,5 km) wäre für mich ein Ausschlusskriterium gewesen, wenn ich vorher ausreichend informiert gewesen wäre. Spitze Steine und teilweise sehr große Schlaglöcher sind selbst für einen Offroad-PKW mit normaler Bereifung eine Herausforderung. Hier müsste dringend etwas getan werden!!!
Einen weiteren Satz Hand- und Geschirrtücher wurde auf unseren Wusch kostenfrei zur Verfügung gestellt. Die Schlüsselübergabe war unkompliziert. Von der Betreuerin vor Ort hätten wir uns mehr Informationen gewünscht. Leider spricht sie nur englisch. Eine deutsche Betreuung wäre wünschenswert. Sauberkeit war ok. Lediglich die Kaffeemaschine war hygienisch nicht der Burner.
Eine Espressokanne für den Gasherd haben wir uns selbst gekauft. Die vorhandene Kanne war viel zu klein und der Griff vom Gasherd schon halb abgesengt.
Anstatt der Waschmaschine, die wir nicht genutzt haben, wäre eine Spülmaschine eine echte Bereicherung.

Good location.Spacious comfortable house with a good kitchen and excellent views. The grounds of Casalta are lovely and the pool was really nice
The road leading to it leaves a lot to be desired and really needs major improvement. Whilst it was flagged up at the time of booking we were not prepared for just how bad the road is. Wifi is expensive!

Les seuls contacts que nous avons eu à l'arrivée et au départ avaient pour unique but d'obtenir le dépôt ($) ou de nous remettre le montant restant sur le dépôt; aucune information verbale sur la région ni aucune question concernant l'appréciation de notre séjour. Également, le fait que malgré la commande d'un panier de bienvenue plusieurs jours avant notre arrivée, celui-ci ne nous a pas été livré, ce qui nous a obligé à aller faire une épicerie en vitesse dès notre arrivée, étant donné les heures d'ouverture limitées de l'épicerie.

Andromeda is a beautiful standalone spacious villa overlooking the vineyard. We enjoyed the privacy. The furniture and fittings were of high quality. The shared pool was nice albeit cold for summer.
With a car, places like Florence, Siena, San Gimignano were accessible within an hour. And less for the Chianti towns like Castellina, Greve, Panzano. The Chianti scenery was breathtaking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at Andromeda.
Probably due to the villa's remoteness, there was no wifi for the whole villa. We paid Eur20 for wifi only to find out that this was limited to one phone/equipment at a time. We ended up paying another Eur20 for another wifi connection. We found it a hassle to log in and out of our phones/iPads so that we could take turns to use the wifi.

Call before arriving. Even though we stated on the internet that we would arrive around 4pm and were told that someone would be there to receive us, there was no one there. We had to make quite a few phone calls before we could get someone to come down with the keys. We waited more than half an hour.

There is no grocery store nearby. Nearest was Castellina, about 10-15 minutes drive away.

Das Haus Andromeda steht isoliert und man ist somit ganz für sich. Der Außenbereich ist ohne Treppe zugänglich und von einer Mauer fast ganz umgeben, perfekt mit kleinen Kindern. Das Haus ist im Inneren großzügig und vollständig ausgestattet. Die Betten sind sehr bequem, das obere Bad ist hell und freundlich, das untere etwas düster. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und der Grill war sauber. Insgesamt ist die Einrichtung ordentlich, geschmackvoll und in gutem Zustand.
Der Wein des Hauses ist ausgezeichnet, unbedingt probieren.
Der Pool ist wunderschön, die ganze Poollandschaft sauber und ordentlich.
Das Haus ist sehr hellhörig. Vor allem im vorderen Zimmer hört man jedes Wort aus dem Wohnzimmer.
Draußen bietet eine Überdachung nur wenig Schutz Bett gegen die Sonne, ein Sonnenschirm wäre noch schön.
Wir waren 2 Wochen dort. In dieser Zeit wurde nicht gereinigt, wir kennen es aus anderen Häusern, dass ein Mal durchgewischt wird. Die Handtücher wurden gewechselt, die Bettwäsche nicht. Man kann aber selbst waschen, also war das ok.

Das Haus ist oberflächig sauber, nach europäischem Standard und bei der recht hohen Endreinigung könnte es aber insgesamt etwas sauberer sein.
Local attractions Castellina in Casalta ist zauberhauft und die Eisdiele im Ort sehr zu empfehlen.

Mooi verzorgd huis met prive ligging. Mooie ruime woning en schoon en in goede staat. Fijn zwembad.
Geen vaatwasser. De internetverbinding ( betaald €20,-) werkte niet goed. Schoonmaakkosten €120,- erg hoog.
Local attractions Siena is dichtbij en erg mooi. In Greve in Chianti zot een heerlijke slager op het plein! Panzano en Greve in Chianti liggen op ongeveer dezelfde afstand van Casalta als Castellina in Chianti, maar is meer te beleven vonden wij. Marktjes zijn leuk om te bezoeken.

- Das Haus ist sehr grosszügig geschnitten. Schönes und sehr gepfleges Gelände.
- Die Terasse ist der Hammer. Sehr schöne Aussicht, auch rund ums Haus.
- Moderne und Saubere Einrichtung.
- Trotz abgelegener Lage sind viele Orte und Städte mit dem Auto gut erreichbar.
- Sehr ruhige Umgebung wodurch wir uns super Entspannen konnten.
- Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants in der nähe.
- Preis-Leistungsverhältniss stimmt.
- Die Badezimmer könnten etwas Sauberer sein, vorallem die Duschen. Sonst aber wirklich sauber.
- Die Vorhänge (in den Schlafzimmern) könnte man erneuern.
Local attractions Lieblingsausflugsziel: - Siena und Montalcino!!! - Pisa war auch sehr schön. - Unbedingt mal ein Weingut besichtigen, z.B. Frescobaldi. Restaurant: Taverna Squarcialupi, ca. 15min von Andromeda entfernt. -Die Landschaft der Toscana ist atemberaubend, jede Autofahrt lohnt sich und die Fahrzeit vergeht wie im Flug. Es gibt so viel zu sehen.
