Casetta Erika was in a wonderful location - private yet within easy reach of Castellina in Chianti. With 5 adults we found the living room space rather small and at times the outside areas a little 'confined' with the perimeter so close to the pool etc. The pool wasn't quite up to expectations.
Also the twin room mattresses were of different depths which meant it was hard to push them together for those wishing to sleep side by side.
Next time we'll go for a slightly larger property.
All that said I've never had such a clean property (or hotel for that matter). It was spotless and Milo and his parents were welcoming, very helpful during our stay and all handovers etc. went very smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Casetta Erika in the future.

Thanks to To Tuscany also for your great support during the booking process etc.

Belle petite maison avec tout le nécessaire, le confort et calme .
les propriétaires sont disponibles et passe une fois par semaine pour nettoyer la piscine et changer le linge de maison.
Un regret, ce chemin qui mène à la maison , praticable mais limite pour des voitures de ville , surtout après un orage ou les ornières et trous deviennent importants avec les pierres qui ressortent.
La région qui ce veut touristique, si elle ne veut pas goudronner, devrait assurer l'état des chemins en les aplanissant régulièrement.
Local attractions beaucoup de visite à faire. voire les petits villages perchés comme Castellina in Chianti, Volterra , San Gimignano, la ville haute de Colle di Val d'Elsa, monteriggioni, San Regolo.... en plus des grandes villes citées dans les guides touristiques.

OWNER COMMENT: Bonjour, merci pour vos commentaires positifs. Et merci surtout pour votre remontée concernant le chemin. Nous allons mettre la pression à la municipalité parce que le chemin ne soit pas traité qu'en début de saison. La forte pluie de la période décrite avait effectivement empiré l'état du chemin que normalement est praticable sans difficulté. Cordialement Milo SALVINI

Wat een heerlijk verblijf in Casetta Erika, vanaf aankomst ( wel wat lastig te vinden door laatste stuk onverharde weg) zeer hartelijk welkom. Eigenaren enorm aardig en behulpzaam. Staat van huis is geweldig. Je ziet dat de eigenaren met liefde er voor zorgen. Faciliteiten prima met een heerlijk zwembad. Kortom; fantastische vakantie!
Local attractions San Grimigano / Florence / Siena zijn echte aanraders en prima te doen qua afstand.

Waren bereits das 2.Mal im Casetta Erika. War wie letztes Mal ein Traum. Wir genossen die Ruhe, die Landschaft und den wunderschönen Garten. Der Pool war sehr gepflegt und sauber, wurde wöchentlich gereinigt. Haben von der Vermieterin noch selbst gemachte Keks bekommen, sehr aufmerksam und sehr lecker!
Einziger Makel, die Zufahrtsstrasse war dieses Jahr stark ausgewaschen und uneben, mussten sehr vorsichtig fahren.
Local attractions Ein Muss sind folgende Städt: Siena / Florenz / San Gimignano / Castellina in Chianti Restaurant-Tipps: Il Fondaccio dai Dottori in Castellina / La Chiantina Osteria in Castellina (beste Pizza unseres Lebens!) Tip für Hundebesitzer: Hundestrand in Vada mit weissem Sand und klarem, türkisfarbenen Wasser - eine Reise wert!

Maison idéalement située pour visiter Florence, Sienne, Lucca, Pise, San Gimignano, Castellina in Chianti ...

L'emplacement au cœur des vignes avec la piscine privée nous a permis d'alterner visites touristiques et journée farniente ! Sans nul doute nous y retournerons.
Local attractions Le meilleur restaurant rapport qualité/prix se situe à 3 kms de la maison dans la commune de La Strolla, "Ristorante Pizzeria Briciole di Toscana" ! Franchement aucune mauvaise surprise et nous y sommes allés avec des amis italiens qui ont adoré ! Coup de cœur pour la ville de San Gimignano de loin la ville que nous avons préférée, l'idéal la visiter en fin de journée avec le coucher du soleil. Pour Florence et pour éviter les problèmes de stationnement nous vous conseillons de prendre le train de Poggibonsi qui vous fait arriver au cœur de Florence.

Een top huisje, schoon en goed onderhouden. Het enige lastige was dat bij het inchecken bleek dat de ouders van Erika geen Engels spreken maar met handen en voeten en een woordenboek kwamen we er samen gelukkig uit. De ouders van Erika komen twee keer per week het zwembad schoon maken, verder is er zat linnengoed en waren de bedden super schoon en sliepen erg lekker en belangrijk de ouders van Erika zijn heel gastvrij en vriendelijk!
De omgeving is fantastische en de rust die wij graag hebben was door de locatie van het huisje top en hadden we zin in drukte met 15 min rijden zaten we in castelina wat een super leuk dorp is. Ook een dagje Siena is aan te raden en natuuurlijk is het eten overal van zeer goede kwaliteit. Kortom, het was een heerlijke vakantie.

Casetta Erika ist ein, bis ins Detail, liebevoll ausgestattetes Haus. Man fühlt sich gleich zu Hause. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die außergewöhnliche Sauberkeit und wir haben schon so einige Häuser in der Toskana besucht. Die Detailverliebtheit geht sogar so weit, dass die automatischen Rasensprenger so eingestellt sind, dass sie nur den entsprechenden Rasenbereich sprengen. Man muss nicht fürchten, wie so oft erlebt, vom Rasensprenger getauft zu werden. Die Beschreibung in To-Toskana trifft voll umfänglich zu. Wir waren vier Erwachsene im Haus. Bei voller Belegung könnte der Aufenthaltsbereich etwas eng werden, aber auch dies wäre kein Hinderungsgrund für uns das Haus noch einmal zu buchen.
Local attractions Für Mountainbiker ein toller Ausgangspunkt für Touren. Beste Einkaufsmöglichkeit ist der Coop in Poggiponsi. Die Hügel der Toskana sind eigentlich die Attraktion jedoch Florenz und Siena sind leicht innerhalb einer Stunde zu erreichen. Sehenswert und gemütlich ist ein kleiner Streifzug durch Monteriggiano. Eine gemütliche und gute Pizzeria findet man auf dem Weg nach Poggiponsi in La Strolla ca. 3,5 km vom Haus entfernt.

We loved the remote location, it was very peaceful. The pool was a great size and extremely clean. Erika and her parents were very welcoming and respectful of privacy if they needed to call. We liked that it was near wonderful sights such as Monteriggioni and Siena.
The condition of the unpaved road, which of course is not the fault of the owners.
Local attractions The ice cream in Castellina is delicious. Siena is only 30 mins away and Monteriggioni only 20 mins away.

Die einsame Lage des Hauses ist wunderschön. Die Sonnenuntergänge waren traumhaft. Die Betten sind erstklassig. Die Gartenstühle und Liegen sind sehr bequem und hochwertig. Sehr nettes Besitzerehepaar, sehr bemüht. Sehr angenehm war, der Bettwäsche- und Handtuchwechsel nach einer Woche.Wir konnten vom ersten Moment vollkommen entspannen. Wir haben uns pudelwohl gefühlt und würden auch wieder dorthin fahren.
Auch wenn wir es wussten, wäre eine Spülmaschine schön gewesen wäre. Aber dies ist kühmen auf hohem Niveau.
Local attractions Luca, San Gimignano und natürlich direkt in der Nähe das Örtchen Castellina in Chianti sind wunderschön, sowie Florenz und Siena. Die Lokale in Castellina sind alle sehr gut. Besonders gefallen hat uns das exklusivere Restaurant Palazzo Squarcialupi und die Antica Trattoria la Torre.

Für uns war es ein perfekter Urlaub - und nächstes Jahr gerne wieder!
