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. 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.

Pool Info

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.

Mooi huis met fantastisch uitzicht en rustig gelegen. Ruim huis met alle voorzieningen. Fijn ontvangst. Lange steile beklimming wel noodzakelijk om bij het huis te komen. Zwembad en privacy zijn top. Huis midden in natuur (roofvogel, hert en wilde zwijnen nabij het huis gezien). Stadjes en bezienswaardigheden min half uur rijden.
Local attractions Greve heeft een ijssalon en diverse leuke winkeltjes en restaurants. Grotere supermarkt in Figline. Verder zijn Florance, Siena en San Gimigniano voor een dagtochtje goed te bereiken. In Dudda is een leuk restaurantje waar de hele streek komt eten.

Wunderschöner Blick, herrlicher Garten, Ruhe, schöner Pool. Mit einem großen Auto (Kombi) sehr schwierige Anfahrt. Viele Insekten jeglicher Art - normal auf dem Land. Aber: eine gründliche Reinigung (unter Betten, Schränken, in Abstellecken) täte dem Haus gut und würde die Zahl der Spinnen/Käfer etc innen und den Staub reduzieren. Wir fanden tote Insekten zwischen den Bettlaken! Sonst wirklich schön. Gute Ausstattung. Bahnhof nach Florenz gut zu erreichen.
Local attractions Casa del Popolo in Lucolena hat am Wochenende wunderbare Pizza zu günstigen Preisen. Hier essen die Einheimischen. Mit dem Zug ab Figline nach Florenz, mit dem Auto nach Siena - wunderschön! Auch Greve sehr hübsch. Mehr konnten wir in einer Woche nicht sehen, zumal der Pool und die Terrasse zum Ausruhen einladen.

The owner is sorry to hear you found many insects. Unfortunately, this can happen deep in the countryside. The caretaker confirms that the house was thoroughly cleaned before arrival and all bed linen was fresh on.

Thank you for your review. As in the villa description, Approach road - 1km bumpy, unpaved road - includes steep tar bend

Second stay at this Property, 1 year after the last. Did not disappoint as everything about this place, the property and the location is fabulous. Much to see in the area. San Gimignano (about a hour and a quarter away) was well worth a visit. Local food and drink as excellent as it was last year. Weather this time was more settled, sunny and very warm. In the pool everyday, often in the morning for a dip, then again late afternoon after a day out touring.

Es hat uns Sehr!!! Gut gefallen.Das Haus aber besonders der Garten ein Traum.
Man muss sowas mögen. Wir haben es in vollen Zügen genossen. Wir wollten Ruhe,Natur ! Das hatten Wir! Der Weg zum Haus mit dem Auto fand ich nicht gut. Die Kurven das auf und ab.

Finde ich so einen tollen Garten nochmal.....Es wird schwer ,daß Haus und Garten zu toppen

Everything went very smoothly, with no problems finding the house, no difficulties on the track and a prompt welcome from the caretaker. We were delighted with the house and its setting, especially the privacy (we saw nobody all week, apart from the caretaker on arrival and departure!), the view and the surroundings. The kitchen was very fully equipped and convenient. We loved the pool which we could enjoy in complete solitude (apart from a resident frog) and were quite happy to do the basic maintenance (though it was perfectly clean on our arrival). It is a house that would suit clients like ourselves who enjoy the remoteness and privacy, though perhaps less so those who like immediate access to other facilities. We would have no hesitation in returning.
Local attractions The local walking is very good, both from the house and slightly further afield. We enjoyed revisiting Radda, Greve and Panzano after many years, and discovered the delights of Volpaia and its restaurant. The Chianti Classico festival in Greve was great fun and left us with a fully laden car on departure.

Can I just say what an absolutely fabulous Villa my Wife and I think this is. The location is exceptional, and the views spectacular. There is a sharp uphill bend on approach which can be tricky, but was do-able easily enough in our rental Car (Citroen Picasso). Many types of Wildlife here. We did see Wild Boar and Deer at the property (outside the fence). Yes, there are some strange bugs to UK dwellers, but nothing at all which bothered us during our stay - day and night. Lovely Pool, which was a complete novelty to have all to ourselves.
The Food, Wine and Beer in the area fabulous, as I would have expected in this region. If you want to do a shop, the large Co-op at Figline is easy to get to and stocks just about anything you would need. All in all, a fabulous experience. No doubt that we would book again with To Tuscany
Local attractions Good Restaurants around the Piazza's in nearby Greve and also in Figline. Trip to Florence well worth it. I would advise parking the Car at Figline, and geting the Train in and out. They are regular and punctual. I think an Adult return ticket was in the region of 10 Euro's. Siena is around an hour and 20 mins drive, and also well worth a visit

To Tuscany have recently visited Casetta Busecchio and are delighted to report that the owner has completely decorated throughout the inside and outside of the house. The access road is quite a narrow dirt track but with a very good surface. It is not at all rocky and does not require a high clearance vehicle. The path down to the pool is a perfectly fine combination of grassy slopes and rock steps. This is in keeping with the charm of the garden which is a very well kept rustic cottage garden. There is a great wood stove with a shed full of wood, open and free for guests to use.
 

Nearest town

The nearest shop is a 10 minutes away in Lucolena, there is a Alimentare (grocery store) that stocks a fabulous range of local products and the essentials.  Further a field, about 15km, is Greve in Chianti this Chianti town is rich with typical stores.
