Pandora is located on the first floor of the central hamlet building. Stone steps lead up to a small balcony which has wonderful views of the gardens and pool, off here is the villa entrance. There is access to a large communal terrace with tables and chairs for dining al fresco.
Entering this lovely, well-furnished Tuscan villa is a small hall with a large oak cabinet. Three stone steps lead up into the open plan kitchen and living area. At the top of the steps is the kitchen where there is a large, high quality, wooden dining table surrounded by six chairs. Against one wall is the kitchen unit which is fully equipped and includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. There is also a traditional Tuscan stone sink.
Passing under a large terracotta arch across the room there is the lounge area. It has two large windows which provide plenty of light, making the room very bright. In one corner is a decorative fireplace. Huddled around this are two wooden armchairs with cushions and a comfortable triple sofa.
Off the kitchen two steps lead into a little hall which provides access to the sleeping area. To the left is a guest toilet with a large wardrobe across the back wall. A twin room is located directly in front of the steps. It is furnished with pretty iron beds which can be put together to make a double. Inside the room is a large wardrobe, mirror and wooden armchair. The window overlooks the internal hamlet courtyard. Next to the twin room is a big bathroom with shower.
At the end of the hall is the main bedroom. This is a triple room. On the lower level is a pretty iron double bed with delicate lace works on the headboard. This part of the room is furnished with a wooden chest of drawers, writing desk with chair and an armchair. The two windows look out over the Chianti hills.
A narrow iron spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor where there is a single bed. Across the back of the room are cupboards while in one corner is a designer iron chair covered with cushions. Like the rest of the villa this room has the tradition Tuscan terracotta ceiling with wooden beams. The room is ideal for young adults or older children, due to the spiral stairs it's not recommended for young children.
The twin room can be made into a double, should you require this please request it when booking. Pandora's neighbour is Borea, both villas are accessed from the balcony. The communal terrace is about 30 metres away.

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.

Absolutely fantastic. The apartment itself as well as the swimming pool, the landscape... It was really wonderful!!!
The price. The economic situation in our country is really difficult now and our purchasing power has decreased a lot in last 2-3 years. We come from Barcelona (Catalonia).
Despite all, I admit that probably is a fair price. The site is really exceptional !!!.
Local attractions The landscape as well as all the cities and villages around (Florence, Siena, Pisa, Monteriggioni, San Gimigiano, Montepulciano, Castellina...)

Het was een mooi, ruim, rustig appartement
Er was geen prive buiten en er was geen BBQ terwijl de overige appartementen wel beide hadden

Jammer ook dat de eigenaar erg veel prive bordjes overal op had geplakt, waardoor het er erg ongastvrij overkomt.

Pandora is smaakvol ingericht en comfortabel. Charmant is de wenteltrap naar boven naar de vide waar zich nog een slaapkamer bevindt. Vanuit het appartement is er prachtig uitzicht op de druivenvelden. Dankzij het feit dat alle ramen gemakkelijk wijd open gezet kunnen worden, is het appartement voldoende koel. De keuken is goed geoutilleerd en we hebben daarom veel kunnen koken. Het zwembad, met het grote dek, ziet er goed uit en is heerlijk. Voor de kinderen bood het zwembad verder de gelegenheid met kinderen van andere gasten te spelen.
De ligging van het huis is prachtig. De nabijgelegen dorpjes op ongeveer 15 minuten rijafstand zijn gezellig en hebben op verschillende dagen een markt met prachtige groente en allerlei andere heerlijkheden. Bovendien is het huis een goede uitvalsbasis voor allerlei uitstapjes naar wat verder gelegen steden en dorpen, waaronder natuurlijk Siena.
Daniela, de beheerster, spreekt vloeiend Engels, was zeer behulpzaam en goed bereikbaar. Door ons bij de check-out vergeten spullen, heeft ze ons zelfs nog nagestuurd!
Al met al hebben we een heerlijke vakantie gehad in Pandora,

Vanuit Pandora kan je naar beneden op een terras buiten zitten, dat voor alle gasten toegankelijk is. Een goed idee is wellicht daar een bbq neer te zetten (alle benedenappartementen hebben een bbq op een eigen terras). De bbq miste ik!
