To the other side of the room is the kitchenette which is well equipped and includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. A large tradition Tuscan villa sink of marble provides the kitchen with some local character. To the left of the room is a wooden table with chairs for 6 people.
Passing under an arch to the back of the room there is a small hall. To the left is a spacious twin bedroom with a lovely wooden chest of drawers. The beds are high quality and made of iron, keeping the typical Tuscan style. There is no wardrobe in the bedroom, however off the hall is a dressing room. This has a 5 door wardrobe and full length mirror.
To the left of the dressing room, there is a small corridor, off which is a spacious bathroom with large shower. At end of the corridor is a double bedroom with iron bed. Through the centre of the room is a large arch providing typical Tuscan character to the room. In one corner is an armchair and a large wardrobe. Plenty of light is provided from the two windows.
The twin room can be made into a double, if required this must be requested 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.

Belle situation,
Un havre de paix très bien entretenu.
Seul point négatif, l'accès sur 1,5km par un chemin en terre poussiéreux.
Sinon, parfait pour des vacances reposantes.

Wohnung bzw. Anwesen alles gut.
Nnur die Auffahrt auf der unbefestigten Straße war doch schwieriger und etwas abenteuerlicher als erwartet. Wir waren immer froh, dass uns kein Fahrzeug entgegen kam, es fehlt an den meisten Stellen an ausreichend Ausweichmöglichkeit. Wie man hier eine Verbesserung erzielen kann, weiß ich aber auch nicht.
Ich würde Csalta nur deshalb nicht jedem empfehlen.
Local attractions Keine Empfehlung konkret. Insgesamt genug Auswahl an Restaurants. Restaurants: immer mit Reservierung Osterias: günstig und gut

Idéalement situé pour visiter la Toscane, que ce soit les grandes villes ( Florence et Sienne, à moins d'une heure) ou les petits villages. Permettant de combiner de vraies moments de détentes au milieu des vignes et des visites riches culturellement. Je recommenderais Casalta à ma famille et mes amis pour un séjour inoubliable.

The position in the Chianti region was excellent for trips to all parts. The whole place was spotless and the beds were really comfortable. The pool area we used every afternoon and was excellent.

There was a lightening storm on day 2 and the power was cut off. I contacted the owner directly who responded immediately. I thought she (and her daughter who ran the check in/out procedure) were thoughtful and very efficient.
We had a large family above us which meant it was noisy at night. That was a bit annoying at first but we got used to it as the week went on..

That's being a bit picky because we loved our weeks stay at the the villa.
Local attractions Can't remember the name but the restaurant at La Piazza round the corner was excellent and we had a few good meals there. We loved Sienna on an evening with lots of great restaurants.

de heerlijke ligging, rustig en prachtig midden in de wijnbergen. Het appartementencomplex is heel goed onderhouden en ook het appartement is heel leuk. De keuken is goed uitgerust. Perfect was dat er een startpakket besteld kon worden e daarom lag al koud water in de koelkast en waren er een aantal andere spullen voor het eten.
Het was bijzonder warm, rond 38 graden en daarom was het overal behoorlijk heet. Een ventilator in de woonkamer zou geholpen hebben maar die was er helaas niet.
De weg naar het appartement is een stenen- en zandweg. Dat was zeker een minpunt maar niet onoverkomelijk.
Local attractions Osteria La Piazza in La Piazza, div. restaurantjes in Castellina in Chianti, Polzano is een leuk stadje, maar ook Greve in Chianti. Daarnaast ligt het op de Chianti Route die zeer aan te raden is. Ook Sienna, Volterra, San Gimignano zijn niet al te ver weg.

L'organisation des pièces.
L'isolation acoustique, le manque de luminosité dans la pièce principale, la piscine qui ne mesure pas 15m x 7m, alors elle est un peu juste si toutes les villas sont au bord de l'eau.
Les personnes anglaises et hollandaises qui ne respectent pas les consignes d’utilisation de la piscine (bateau pneumatique, dauphin ou orque géants...) enfin un accès qui n'est pas évident pour une voiture de sport mais qui passe sans soucis pour une voiture classique.
Local attractions La pizzeria Il Fondaccio dai dottori pour leurs pizzas Nuvolari Bar pour son charme et ses pastas Le village de Castellina di Chianti, Sienne et Florence.
