Casa Silvia is a small cottage attached to several other properties in little typical Tuscan hamlet of local residents called Valigondoli. On the other side of the hamlet there is a restaurant. The front of the cottage looks out onto a wonderful view of the Tuscan hills and valleys.
Crossing a gravel path in front of the villa there is a stone paved terrace which leads down several steps to a second terrace with a large barbeque and pizza oven. It is furnished with a table and chairs for dining al fresco, an umbrella and sun-beds. On a lower level is the irregular shaped, prefabricated pool which is surrounded by a large wooden sun deck. There are fantastic views from this area. The pool is chlorine free.
Entering the villa Casa Silvia there is an open plan room with a white wooden ceiling and windows looking out to the views to the front of the villa. To one side of the room is a large fireplace, ideal for the cooler nights. Next to this are two wooden armchairs. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with four chairs.

Passing under an arch there is the small kitchen which is well equipped, and includes gas hobs, oven, fridge with separate freezer and dishwasher.
To the other side of the room is a double bedroom which can be set up as a twin, this must be requested when booking. The room has a large wardrobe and a window that provides plenty of light. It looks out to the front of the villa and the views beyond.
From the back of the lounge there are a few steps up into a corridor. Off this is a bedroom with a double metal bed, painted in a lovely green colour. In the room is a large wardrobe with mirrors and a wooden chest of drawers. The window opens up onto an internal courtyard surrounded by other houses. At the end of the hall is a small laundry and a bathroom with shower.

Casa Silvia is a simple villa with wonderful views.
Please indicate on booking if you require a twin bedroom set up.

Free Internet Wi-Fi for one device.

The bed in the second bedroom is a small double bed measuring 140cm.

Unser 7-Tägiger Besuch in diesem wunderschönen Anwesen war absolut perfekt!
Casa Silvia ist traumhaft gelegen, egal ob zum Sonnenbaden, die Ruhe an einem schattigen Plätzen zu genießen oder gemeinsam zum Sonnenuntergang ein Gläschen Chianti zu trinken.
Größere Städte wie Florenz, Siena oder auch Pisa sind völlig problemlos zu erreichen und die Wege führen durch wunderschöne Gebiete der Toskana.
Das Häuschen ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sowohl in der Küche, im Bad als auch in der Waschküche ist alles vorhanden um auch längere Aufenthalte zu genießen und sich wie Zuhause zu fühlen.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können Casa Silvia wärmstens empfehlen :)

We had a very lovely stay at Casa Silvia in early September. We swam in the pool almost every day. The water is chlorine free and tastes a bit salty. There is a shower next to the pool. The view from the terrace is beautiful, especially in the evening, when you can see stunning sunsets. The ancient house is well kept and boasts a very well equipped kitchen and even a separate laundry. We used the pizza oven and the barbecue very often. Samuele is a very friendly host; he doesn't live at the property, but there are neighbours at the site, so you do not feel lonely. We can really recommend this place for couples and small families.
Local attractions We tried the Trattoria da Pordo once and found the food very good. We can also recommend a trip to Montefioralle and the restaurant Taverna del Guerrino there. A tour at Castello Verrazzano (wine tasting and food) was also nice for us adults. The children were perfectly happy with the pool and garden. Sightseeing in Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Vinci, Volterra, etc. requires around 1h driving, but you see historic buildings on every hilltop. A pity that you cannot visit most castles, as they are still inhabited, wineries or hotels.

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub und haben unsere Zeit in Valigondoli sehr genossen. Das Haus war für uns eine tolle Basis für Ausflüge in die Toskana und gleichzeitig ein erholsamer Rückzugsort. Besonders die traumhaften Sonnenuntergänge werden uns immer in Erinnerung bleiben.
Local attractions Sehr zu empfehlen für alle Geniesser: "La Cantinetta Di Rignana" (Trüffel und Bistecca alla Fiorentina) und "Il Cavaliere Del Castello Di Gabbiano" (moderne italienische Küche auf Sterne-Niveau).

Sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun set over over the distant mountains is amazing and 7 nights of this is not enough. A swim in the dark with the pool lights on was unreal too. We had a wood fired BBQ most evenings. The area is very quiet and relaxing. We had some nice walks from the villa too.
Local attractions The adjacent restaurant is ok. Panzano is 15mins away and has a coop. walk up the steps to the rear and you find a lovely restaurant with a covered terrace overlooking the rolling hills. There is also a lovely wine bar next door but two. The best/closest supermarket is in Mercatale. The winery at Panzanello (10 mins along the main road) was great. Just turn up, sample the wine and chat to the staff. Greve is nice and there is and English speaking tourist information. We got the bus to Florence which goes every hour and takes less than an hour and costs 6 euros.

We had a fantastic time in Casa Silvia. We were quite spoiled after spending two great weeks at another location in Tuscany and we were actually a bit worried if Casa Silvia could top that experience. However, the soon we arrived we felt home and comfortable. Check in with Samuele and his wife was very friendly and efficient; you can tell they love the place and really enjoy hosting quests. They showed us around the beautiful garden, pool area, terraces, and the house. The house is perfect for a small family; not big, but big enough; very nice kitchen, good bathroom, and nice bedrooms. Easy to feel at home in. The real prize of the house is outside; breath-taking views, that keep you gazing. Great pool, no chlorine, very nice! Very good chairs, great terrace; there are four different areas in the premises, and each one has its own atmosphere. Our two daughters (6 and 8) were very happy with the two turtles in the back of the garden, and enjoyed taking care of them - first thing to do in the morning. We used the BBQ, pizza-oven is on our list for next time. Tuscany was very warm this time of year, but there was enough wind to cool off, the pool was great, and the house was easy to cool. Definitely go there again - we felt sad to leave. Compliments to Casa Silvia, hope to see you again soon!
Local attractions The restaurant behind the house is nice; we didn't have dinner there, but enjoyed desert and coffee there. It is a typical small-town trattoria, mostly enjoyed by locals. Too many nice places to visit; we especially liked San Donato, great restaurant, out on the street, in a postcard-picture. But pretty much every village and city holds its own gems. Florence is really nearby, especially of you go early and park at Piazzale Michelangelo and walk down towards the city (and take a taxi back up if you are tired at the end of the day); probably the closest and easiest place to park and kick-of your day in Florence. Parking not expensive according to Dutch standards; 1E first hour, then 2E for each following hour. Wel worth it. Sienna a bit farther away, we skipped that because we enjoyed Casa Silvia too much. It is on our list for next year.

First we want to thank the owners for their very warm welcome.
The house is located in a quiet region, with a beautiful view over the Val di Pesa
The house is equiped with a pratical terrace with a pizza oven and a barbecue.
You have a large swimming pool too.
These two places are exposed to the sun all day and you can practically every evening watching a beautiful sunset.
The house is situated at 35 km of Florence, 50 km from Siena of 45 km from San Gimigniano, so very easy to get these cities.
Finally, for lovers of wine or other products, you are at the beginning of the Chianti region with these typcal villages.
Perfect.
Happy hollidays.

Bij aankomst werden wij opgewacht door de vriendelijke eigenaar en zijn dochter. Alles was netjes in het huis. Zwembad zeer aangenaam op warme zomerdagen... en tuin romantisch. De pizza-oven was een geweldige ervaring :-) Zeer lekkere pizza's klaargemaakt door onze zoon. Wel geen 100% privacy. Restaurant geeft uit op het weggetje dat je lijdt naar de tuin. Vooral zondag veel lawaai gehad en kindjes en honden die tot bij je komen in de tuin. Huis en tuin zijn afgescheiden door een baantje. Voor de rest hebben we een heel aangenaam verblijf gehad. Wel rekening houden met de talrijke muggen ( tijgermuggen ). Maar die zijn in heel Italie aanwezig. De buurman heeft ons wel getoond welke muggedoekjes we best gebruikten. Een aan te raden huisje voor wie graag het binneland verkend... prachtig :-)
Local attractions Heel veel super gezellige dorpjes, steden en prachtige natuur. Aanrader: San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, de Ghianti-wijnroute. Dorpje op 6 km : heel gezellig en lekkere ijsjes en pizza's is San Casciano. Greve in Chianti ook heel leuk om te doen

Po przyjeździe pierwsze wrażenie robi niesamowity widok z tarasu i ogrodu, w którym położono basen. W maju sąsiednie mieszkania nie były zamieszkałe (jedynie druga część budynku), więc praktycznie byliśmy sami. To dobry obiekt dla osób szukających odpoczynku i okazji do pobycia sam na sam. Zarówno dom, jak i ogród są wyposażone we wszystko, co potrzebne dla wygody gości. Kamienny domek jest niestety mało przytulny w chłodne i deszczowe dni. trochę pomaga kominek dostępny w domku, ale na krótko - po wygaśnięciu kominka szybko robi się chłodno. obok kwatery znajduje się restauracja prowadzona przez rodzinę - być może to kwestia sezonu, ale nie była czyn a w sposób regularny i menu też było dość ubogie. na szczęście bardzo blisko są miejscowości godne odwiedzenia, gdzie można zjeść i zrobić bardzo dobre zakupy.
Local attractions w Greve in Chaint polecamy restaurację znajdującą się przy Via Roma (uliczka odchodząca od rynku) - La Cantina - wspaniała pizza i makaron z owocami morza :)

Die Terrasse mit einem traumhaften Blick über die Hügel des Chianti und der Pool mit chlorfreiem Wasser haben uns am besten gefallen. Viel Spaß hatten wir auch mit dem Pizzaofen. Auch die Ausstattung des Hauses ist wirklich komfortabel. Der Empfang war sehr unkompliziert und herzlich.
Es fehlt - vor allem für schlechteres Wetter - ein gemütlicher Platz im Haus, der Wohn- Essraum erscheint auf den Bildern größer als in Wirklichkeit. Die Nutzung des W-LANs ist etwas umständlich, man muss sich immer wieder neu einloggen, nicht immer funktioniert es.
Local attractions Panzano, Florenz ist wirklich ssehr gut zu erreichen.

Ideale plek als je zoek bent naar rust en kalmte, netheid, privé. Je hebt er alles om het buitenleven: een prachtig groot zwembad voor eigen gebruik, de overdekte terras voor wat schaduw en een mooi salon op een zonnig terras.
Je hebt binnen eveneens alles wat je nodig hebt om een aangename vakantie door te brengen: een praktische en volledige keuken, voldoende ruimte en een grote tv(indien nodig).
Eigenaars zijn heel vriendelijk, je wordt hartelijk onthaald met een flesje wijn en een mooie bos bloemen op de salontafel.

tegenvallen is niet echt het correcte woord, wat het zou afmaken qua comfort is een airconditioning. Gezien de enorme warmte die we hadden (tot 37°) zou airco welkom geweest zijn om wat af te koelen. De ramen konden wel volledig worden afgesloten van het buitenlicht maar dit kon niet beletten dat het,weliswaar minder, toch nog warm bleef.
Local attractions Wij vonden het restaurantje net naast de deur niet het beste: basic qua eten en de hoofdschotel werd geserveerd terwijl het voorgerecht nog niet was doorgeslikt. Enkele voor ons goede eetgelegenheden: Oltre Il Giardino te Panzano en La Cantinetta di Rignana te Greve. Proef er van de lokale lekkerheden mmh

Die Außenanlage und der sehr schöne Pool! Durch die erhöhte Lage (ca. 500 Meter) hat man einen phantastischen Blick über die westliche Toskana (wird auf den Bildern gar nicht so deutlich). Auch wenn es kein freistehendes Einzelhaus ist, ist man für sich, da sich Garten und Eingang zum Haus auf der rückwärtigen Seite der Häuserzeile befinden, die sehr hübsch anzuschauen ist und mit einem netten Restaurant abschließt. Die Bewohner sind sehr freundlich und respektieren unbedingt die Privatsphäre. Samuele und Familie haben uns sehr nett empfangen, sind sehr aufgeschlossen, hilfsbereit und engagiert! Für den Haushalt ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht und sehr hervorzuheben sind die Moskitonetze vor allen Fenstern!
Vorweg: wir waren 3 Wochen zu zweit, hatten sehr schönes Wetter, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und nichts vermisst! Da jedoch der eigentliche Wohnbereich lediglich aus einem nicht sehr großen Esstisch mit 4 Stühlen und 2 Sesseln besteht und das Badezimmer (trotz schöner, großer Dusche) sehr klein ist, können wir uns nicht so recht vorstellen, das Haus mit 4 Erwachsenen zu bewohnen. Für 2 Personen ist es absolut zu empfehlen!
Local attractions Lucca, Florenz (mit dem Bus! Für ca. 3 € bis ins Zentrum), Siena, San Gimignano, Colle Di Val d'Elsa, Arezzo, Castello di Brolio u.v.m. Unbedingt sehenswert ist auch Barberino Val d'Elsa. Wenn man die Zeit hat, einfach mal von der Hauptstraße abfahren und sich überraschen lassen. Spektakuläre Straßen und Aussichten sind sicher!

We loved the feeling of tranquility and solitude even though within the small hamlet. The sunsets were stunning as was the incredible 3am electrical storm! The accomodation was extremely clean and thoughtfully presented. Just enough of everything to feel relaxed. Mercatile only 10 mins away to get provisions ( reasonable sized CO-OP)
The different heights of the seating/pool areas gave the sense of wonderful space. Above all such a friendly welcome from Samuele and his family - it felt a privilege to stay there and look after the place...many thanks for a wonderful stay in September 2014 Ciao!!
Not much really - a little noise on occasion from the adjoining residence - but not an issue. Bring plenty of insect repellent!
Local attractions The small Pordo restaurant provides well cooked food (30 second walk) behind property. Florence only 45 mins away - and is stunning, Pisa approx 1 hour's driven as is Sienna the other way. If going to Florence - go via Impruneta and Pozzolatico for a less stressful drive, and very beautiful one too!

Very good location in the heart of the Chianti region, a cosy and character filled cottage, interesting multi level layout of the facilities, nice big pool with stunning deck and views, and a friendly trattoria only a stone's throw away!
No comfy couch in the lounge although the evenings were balmy so we mostly had our dinner al fresco

The cottage is tidy and compact, but it's appeal is in what lies outside. The facility is first class, the view stunning, and the pool welcoming on a hot day. The occasional deer wandered into the grounds, while buzzards float overhead. A car is definitely needed, but the remoteness of the location is part of the attraction. Local towns and villages are no more than a 15 minute drive away, and the bigger cities of Florence and Siena are little more than an hour away. Samuel is a very friendly owner (a Fiorentina fan) who is more than happy to answer any queries - despite our poor grasp of Italian!
We had to come home.
Local attractions Trattoria da Pordo is only a 30 second walk away and therefore a very inviting option. The food is good (we ate there three times), and the local Chianti (Solatione) is highly recommended. Greve-on-Chianti is full of character with plenty of good eating spots, while in Panzano we found that Il Vescovino was a good choice for a special meal - ask for a balcony table that overlooks a typical Tuscan view.

Very quiet, outstanding views across hills and valleys, fantastically setup for self catering, with well equipped kitchen, lovely covered area outside for eating etc, plus great terrace to drink and watch sunsets, the pool area is large, and lots of gardens to watch wildlife including fireflies. There is a restaurant approx 50 yards away too.
Nothing. The weather was not great during our stay, lots of thunderstorms but it was good to sit in the outside covered area and watch them roll past.
Local attractions San Gimignano approx 45 minute drive, also Certaldo alto, similar distance.and Colle di Val d'Elsa. Favourite restaurant Cum Quibus in San Gimignano, excellent beyond words.
