Casetta Busecchio, Pescina - Greve in Chianti - Florence

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

If you truly want to get away from it all, Casetta Busecchio is your answer. A charmingly updated farm cottage at the end of a private unpaved road, it conjures a special magic: while you may well not see anyone else in the immediate environs after being greeted by the caretaker, it is not uncommon to see wild deer and wild boar at the edge of the garden. Tucked into a wooded hillside, the land falls away from the main, terraced side of the house, offering views of Chianti’s heartland. Tranquility is the watchword of this property.

With white-washed walls, the contemporary interior is thoughtfully and simply styled, striking a light, young note. Outside, a large stone terrace overlooks a rustic garden. A round private pool at the lower level with a furnished stone terrace and shady pergola is a lovely spot for cooling dips. While Florence, Siena and San Gimignano are all within excellent reach for day trips, the nearby smaller towns of Greve, Panzano and Radda have much to offer. Or, forget about driving anywhere, and set out on one of several walks straight from your front door.

Our Thoughts
More thoroughly rural than most, Casetta Busecchio reaches parts that other villas can’t – it’s no surprise that its views and calm are creating a band of devotees. We love its assured simplicity and enviable seclusion. Its three bedrooms can accommodate six people comfortably, but its pleasantly modest scale also makes it a lovely hideaway for couples. With doors opening on to the terrace from the lounge, dining room and kitchen, you’ll move seamlessly between the house and garden for al-fresco meals and refreshment – under the awning in the heat of the day, by the olive tree for evening drinks.

Three bedrooms. Two bathrooms. The first floor is accessed by external steps. There is no central heating but you are welcome to use logs from the villa’s shed for the wood burner at no extra charge. Pets are not allowed. The 1km unpaved approach road has a sharp uphill bend to negotiate, small cars or sports cars are not recommended for a visit here.
There is a 1km bumpy, unpaved road - no access with low-slung cars, drivers need previous experience in steep gravel roads, the car weight/power ratio required should not exceed 20kg/KW.

The circular pool is set in a paved stone surround that gives way to lawn. Internal steps provide easy access to the water. Parasols, plus a pergola and rich variety of scattered trees offer shade to the sunloungers when it is needed.
The pool is open from June to September (weather permitting). It is 7 metres in diameter with a depth varying from 70cm to 2 metres.

Casetta Busecchio ist eine wunderschöne, gepflegte Unterkunft, in der man absolute Ruhe genießen kann. Uns war nicht ganz bewusst wie abgelegen das Haus tatsächlich ist. Die Anfahrt dorthin ist sehr abenteuerlich. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt. Der Housekeeper war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit! Der Pool befindet sich nicht direkt neben dem Haus, sondern ist über einen steilen Weg etwas unterhalb des Hauses erreichbar.
