Casa Silvia, Valigondoli - San Casciano in Val di Pesa - Florence

2 bedrooms 1 bathroom 4 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

If you’re looking for a small, secret hideaway in Chianti, this is it. A stone cottage in the hamlet of Valigondoli, Casa Silvia doesn’t do grand but does welcome you with roses outside and wow you with spectacular views. Ideal for a couple, small family or group of friends. You are spoilt for choice with Florence and San Gimignano close by and Siena only a little further, but it may be difficult to pull yourself away from the quiet tranquility here.

Casa Silvia’s garden tumbles downhill, surrounded by a sloping olive grove, with three small terraces to choose from for different parts of the day – meals al fresco, a private pool to cool off, drinks at sunset. Inside, the villa is decorated simply and has all you’ll need, including an open fire for cooler evenings at either end of the season. Valigondoli is a typical Tuscan hill village with one restaurant. The property is attached to several others at the rear and you cross a gravel path, just outside the front door, to reach the private garden, but there’s little doubt this will quickly feel like home.

Perfekter Aufenthalt. Casa Silvia ist ein super Ausgangspunkt, um die Toskana zu erkunden. Marcela und Samuele sind sehr freundliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber. Wenn wir wieder in die Toskana kommen, werden wir auf jeden Fall Casa Silvia noch einmal buchen.
Local attractions Restaurants: Cantinetta di Rignana, Castello di Gabbiano, La Castellana Städte: Siena und Lucca sehr schön und weniger voll als Florenz. Pisa und Florenz lohnen sich definitiv, sind nur total überlaufen.
