Lyra is a lovely Chianti villa, located on the corner of the main hamlet building. From the pretty terracotta terrace there are wonderful views of the surrounding Tuscan hills covered in vineyards, olive groves and forests. The entrance is up some terracotta steps from the terrace.
Inside is an open plan living area. Against one wall is a fully equipped kitchenette which includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. There is also a large, traditional Tuscan stone sink.
In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table with six chairs and a pretty, typical Tuscan wood sideboard. To the other side of the room is a double sofa and two armchairs. The room has plenty of light provided by the glass double doors which lead onto a sunny communal courtyard, and the door to the terrace.
Down some stone steps there is a corridor, off which is a double bedroom. It is furnished with a beautiful iron bed and chest of drawers. There is a high window. This room like the rest of the villa has a typical Tuscan terracotta floor. En-suite is a toilet.
Across the hall is a dressing room which has a large wardrobe and mirror. Next to this is a small bathroom with shower. At the end of the corridor is a twin bedroom. There are handmade iron beds which can be put together to make a double bedroom. A chest of drawers and lovely lamp with iron lace work complete the furnishings of the twin bedroom.
If two doubles are required please request this when booking.

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.

Pool Info

The pool is located up several stone steps behind the laundry room. It is protected from the hamlet by a high stone wall and iron gate. The other three sides of the pool are open with a cypress and fir trees.
Surrounding the pool is a large sun deck dotted with several umbrellas and sunbeds. Above the pool is a second, rarely used car park. There are some views of the Chianti hills through the cypress trees. The pool is 12 x 7 meter, 1.2-1.6 metres deep. Open from May to September.

Stay: August 2014
uitzicht, comfort (goed verzorgd) , sevice bevielen zeer goed, genoten.
het terras van Lyra ligt langs een weggetje waar andere bewoners langslopen als zij naar het zwembad gaan, dus hierdoor minder privacy

Vaak lawaai : schreeuwen in zwembad (hoor je als je op het terras zit) , snachts en vroeg stampende geluiden van kinderen van omwonende families (erg gehorig) Je kan contact zoeken met andere families als je dit wil, maar zo niet dan is dit ook heel goed mogelijk
Local attractions alle bekende steden en plaatjes bezocht, fantastisch . Ruim keus aan restaurants. Weinig in buurt van Lyra gegeten.

The owner has informed us that the road has been improved (Dec 2013).

As advised in the villa description, the approach road is an unpaved countryside road with uphill sections. A low vehicle is not recommended.

The owner assures that it is safe to pass without damage to your vehicle.
