Casetta Kiwi is a lovely semi-detached Tuscan villa in the hamlet of Bricciano. The villa is divided between the first and second floor of the property. The quaint village of Barbischio is only a short distance away. The beautiful town of Gaiole in Chianti can be reached within a few minutes drive.
The sparkling black lined pool is accessed down a flight of stone steps and is approximately fifty metres from the villa. The pool has plenty of privacy due to its location in the lower gardens. From here there are beautiful views of the valley and distant hills of the Chianti.
Close to the external steps of Cassetta Kiwi is a furnished terrace with table and chairs for four and a very large parasol. Three sun chairs are also available for relaxing in the warm Tuscan sunshine. This area is surrounded by a hedge which offers some privacy. A second small covered terrace can be found at the top of the external stairs next to the main entrance. This is furnished with a small table and four chairs.
Entry into the villa is via a flight of stone steps directly into the modern and spacious kitchen. The 'L' shaped kitchen area has plenty of work and storage space. It is furnished with an oven, gas hobs, dishwasher and fridge with separate freezer compartment. Next to the kitchen is a dining area with table and chairs for four. The two windows in this area offer wonderful views of the countryside and distant hills.
Left of the kitchen and main entrance is the comfortable lounge. This room is bright and airy and comprises of two sofa's, armchair, wood burning stove and a large cabinet. On top of the cabinet is a flat screen television with satellite, DVD and MP3 player. A glass door opens onto the small terrace by the main entrance. There is also a flight of stairs in the lounge that lead to the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom.
At the top of the stairs and to the left is the spacious double room. Plenty of light enters through the two windows which also provide wonderful views. The room is furnished with a double bed, chest of drawers and a large built-in wardrobe with plenty of cupboard space above.
Directly ahead from the top of the stairs is the second room. It is furnished with a single bed, small table and two sets of shelving space. A glass door leads out onto a small unfurnished terrace which offers more of the beautiful views. A short corridor leads from both bedrooms to a bathroom with shower and washing machine.



1 double room and 1 single room
The double bed cannot be converted into a twin.

The owners house is approximately fifty metres from the villa.

The views
The awful track to arrive, up the side of what seemed like a mountain in a barely
made up track (last part was the worse) with huge potholes and an extremely steep drop down to the accommodation - not good in the pouring rain and dark at night. The stone flight of steps up to the flat with no hand rail also in the dark and wet was treacherous and the final scarey bit was the stone stairs with no handrail and open sided to the bedrooms. The directions were poor and did not give the final arrival address in full, also the phone numbers we were given were incorrect causing even more frustration. Finally car had to be parked further down a very steep area and not next to the house. Would have been fine if you had been a mountain goat!!!

Het prachtige huis, modern, ruim, schoon en met smaak ingericht.
Van alle gemakken voorzien. De bijzonder aardige sleutelbewaardster
Holly, heel toegankelijk en behulpzaam. En dan het schitterend zwembad, 18x4 meter ideaal om baantjes te trekken.
De laatste paar honderd meter en de parkeerruimte bij het huis:
Onder de maat, om niet te zeggen gewoon waardeloos.
We zouden graag nog eens terug komen maar de toegang houdt ons tegen!!!! Hier zou best eens wat aandacht aan mogen worden besteed. "De laatste 50m zijn moeilijk begaanbaar" dekt de lading niet,.uiteindelijk de auto maar in de wijngaard geparkeerd verder van het huis vandaan.
Local attractions Doordat de weg zo slecht was gingen wij overdag verderop lunchen in bv Siena, Florence, Volterra en Pienza. s' Avonds wilden we de weg niet meer op, dus bleven we thuis.

Het was een gezellig knus huisje, smaakvol ingericht en eigenlijk van alle gemakken voorzien. Mooie moderne badkamer en keuken waar niks in ontbreekt. Het uitzicht vanuit het huisje en bijbehorend balkon is prachtig. Ook het zwembad is schitterend en heeft een uitstekende ligging.
Een paar dagen voor ons vertrek waren er veel mensen in en om het huisje naast ons. Steigers aan het bouwen en spullen in en uit het huisje dragen. Je zat niet helemaal lekker rustig en prive meer. Op de ochtend van ons vertrek begonnen deze mensen om kwart over 7 met boren en zagen, in onze ogen kan dit echt niet. Wij worden ons bed uit getrild. Holly de sleutelbewaarster was ontzettend lief en hulpvaardig, echter kwam zij op de dag van vertrek om kwart voor 8 om de borg te regelen etc. Dit vonden wij veel te vroeg aangezien wij pas om tien uur het huisje dienden te verlaten.

Apologies for any disruption on your last day. Works were being carried out for a short period in the neighbouring cottage to install a stove in the kitchen.

Local attractions Radda, Castellina, Siena, Gaiole, Barbisscio und viele kleine wunderschöne Dörfer Restaurant in Barbisscio empfehlenswert,

There is a light on the balcony. The owner has checked the kitchen equipment and has confirmed it is complete. There is ample room on the terrace for 3 people to be seated comfortably.

Das Anwesen liegt sehr schön ruhig, man hat einen tollen Blick auf Castagnoli - zusammen mit dem Pool perfekt zum Entspannen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich modern eingerichtet, die Küche auch für aufwendigere Gerichte gut ausgestattet.
Local attractions Restaurant: Il Celliere in Castagnoli: Die Weinprobe war schon sehr schön, mit sehr guter Beratung - nach der Weinprobe haben wir im Celliere gegessen, das Essen war einfach nur großartig. Ausflugsziele: Castello d'Albola: Wir haben an einer Führung durch den Betrieb und die Weinkeller teilgenommen und durften danach die sehr guten Weine probieren. Die umliegenden Dörfer und Städtchen haben alle einen sehr ähnlichen Charme, Monteriggioni und San Gimigniano haben uns besonders gut gefallen.

Uns hat ganz besonders der Pool zur Alleinnutzung und das freundliche Bemühen der Gastgeber gefallen. Die Lage etwas abseits war einerseits ganz wunderbar, andererseits waren die Wege sowohl zum Einkauf als auch zu touristischen Zielen mitunter recht weit. In der wunderschönen Unterkunft haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Local attractions Uns hat es besonders gut in San Gimignano, Lucca und Arezzo gefallen; Florenz war uns zu voll. Das Restaurant "Il Papavero" war eine Empfehlung der Gastgeber. Die Beratung war gut, das Essen lecker, die Portionen eher klein, der Preis dafür "groß".
