Casetta Busecchio, Pescina - Greve in Chianti - Florence and Chianti

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 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.

Notes
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.

Pool
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.

Once again (our 4th stay here since 2016), a wonderful stay at this Villa. It is in such a stunningly beautiful and peaceful location. A great place to completely unwind after a couple of stay at home years due to covid - Just what we needed. The weather was perfect, and so much time was spent down by the pool. Long evenings were spent on the terrace, gazing at the view, listening to the sounds of nature and sipping a glass of wine or two. As always, the Villa was well equipped and very comfortable. The nights were very warm, but we were brave enough to have an open window at night which improved comfort. Plenty of bugs around, unfamiliar to us back at home, but nothing which caused us any harm at all (as scary as some of them looked)! We will definitely return.
Local attractions As remote as the Villa appears to be, both Greve and Radda are just a short drive away. Here there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Greve has a lovely piazza surrounded by restaurants & bars. There is also a top class butchers that is well worth a visit. Further afield, a drive to Siena is very much recommended. It is a little over an hours drive from the Villa. For Florence, we would recommend driving to Figline and catching the train. Plenty of free parking to be found on each side of the tracks at Figline. The train takes 35 minutes if you pick the fast one, and they are regular. Florence is a beautiful City and is a must to visit if you haven’t been before. Also in Figline is a large Coop supermarket. Everything you could need will be found here. It is also one of the few local supermarkets to remain open in the afternoon during the traditional ‘siesta’ hours.
