Virgo is a pretty, spacious Tuscan villa on the edge of the main buildings of the Casalta hamlet in the central Chianti. Outside there is a small garden with a pretty terrace furnished with an umbrella, table and chairs.
The front door leads into a large room with two big arched windows that provide plenty of light and look out towards the car park. Below the windows is an angle sofa which seats 5 people. To the other side of the room is wooden dining table with four chairs. In one corner is a designer iron armchair with cushions and against a wall is a cupboard.
Passing under a half arch is the kitchen 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.
Off the kitchen is the first of the two bedrooms. This is a large twin room which has a big arched window making the room very bright. The beds are in iron and can be made into a double if required. Completing the room is a double, wooden wardrobe and a lamp with a pretty iron shade that has some intricate iron lace work.
Stone steps down from the kitchen lead to a lower level where there is the bathroom with shower and double bedroom. The bedroom has an iron bed and a large wardrobe. One of the walls has the original stone exposed which provides the room with some of the original character. Like the rest of this Tuscan villa the floor is of terracotta tiles and ceiling has wooden beams and terracotta. A large arched window gives the room plenty of light.
If two double rooms 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.

A fabulous trip. The views were stunning and the location perfect. Pool area had plenty of sunbeds.
Frustrating that no pepper/salt/oil seems daft that all customers first supermarket shop includes these items. Also the taking of cash as deposit is very antiquate

we have stayed at the Casalta estate previously, in the villa Pandora. virgo was of a slightly lower standard. the villa is incredibly dark . Luckily we have older children but the internal stairs would be potentially hazardous for little ones.
also some fans would be a good idea as it was unbearably hot at night. The villa was poorly equipped. the toaster wasn't working, no hangers in one of the wardrobes. also the shower wasn't as clean as it should have been. we noticed the shower tray was quite dirty. it is however situated in a nice position and the grounds are very well kept.
Local attractions the restaurant in the hamlet of La Piazza is very nice. sienna and San Gimignano are our favourite visits

OWNER COMMENTS: Thank you for your comments. There are 6 steps leading to the double bedroom. The toaster has been checked and is working fine. Virgo has very large windows providing much light We are sorry you did not find enough hangers - I would happily have provided more for you had you asked. The owner and manager of Virgo are at client's disposal for any requests or concerns.
