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

2 bedrooms 1 bathroom 4 people 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.

Nous avons passé une semaine à Casa Silvia avec nos jumelles de 3.5 ans au mois fin juin. C'est un lieu paradisiaque, où il fait bon se laisser vivre, profiter de la beauté de la nature. Le jardin est magnifique et les filles ont adoré nourir les tortues, sauter dans la piscine et jouer avec la balançoire et la petite maisonnette. Tout le confort est là: joli intérieur, barbecue, four à pizza, serviette pour la psicine!
En prime, les magnifiques couchers de soleils sur les collines du Chianti et la petite tratoria juste au dessus pour goûter les spécialités du coin!
Bref, un séjour idilique, nous y retournerons!
Local attractions Florence, Sienne, San Gimignanno, Volterra. La tratoria qui se trouve juste au dessus.
