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

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. The owners are known for their welcome and helpfulness should you need them. The heating is provided by a system of radiators which are powered by the wood-burning fireplace. Wood and firelighters are provided by the owner. There is also a gas-powered stove which can be used by guests.

Die Casa Silvia ist ein tolles Anwesen im typischen Stil mit herrlichen Pool und einem wundervollen Ausblick über das Chianti. Ein Ausblick wie im Bilderbuch. Uns hat es hier an nichts gefehlt und wir haben uns rund herum sehr wohl gefühlt und konnten git entspannen. Die Eigentümer waren sehr nett und zuvorkommend, haben geduldig auf uns gewartet und uns alles gezeigt.
Die wenigen Nachbarn sind sehr nett und auch sehr gesellig. Dadurch kann es auch manchmal etwas lauter werden, was uns persönlich nicht gestört hat. Wir durften uns aus dem Garten an den Kräutern und den Feigen bedienen. Einfach herrlich.
Local attractions Ca. eine Stunde (mit Auto und öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln) haben wir von der Casa nach Florenz Zentrum gebraucht. Haben uns drei Tage hintereinander die Stadt und ihre Schätze angesehen. Es hätten auch gut 4 Tage sein können. Wenn man einen genauen Zeitplan hat, sollte man die Eintritte ggf. vorher buchen. Sonst kann es teilweise zu längeren Wartezeiten kommen. Preiswerter ist es aber vor Ort. In der Umgebung eine Weingüter und Restaurants zum Ausprobieren. Ansonsten lädt die Casa und die Umgebung zum „dolce vita“ – man darf sich einfach treiben lassen, genießen und in den Tag hinein leben.
