Casuccia di Ama, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This enchanting hideaway for two is a hop and a skip from Radda and Gaiole, two of Chianti’s most popular small towns. Thus, your only daily dilemma will be whether to while away the evening on your own terraces, enjoying the beauty of the surrounding manicured vineyards, or to head for one of several local restaurants. With Siena and San Gimignano less than an hour away, and Florence just a little further, exploring the wine-producing region and its cultural highlights is easy.

It will also be easy to stay at home for the day: the owners of Casuccia di Ama have made sure you have everything you need in this neat, charming property. Outside, on four different levels, the two terraces and garden are suntraps with views of gentle hills; the round pool is perfect for cooling-off; the built-in barbecue with stone sink, just outside the kitchen, is crying out to be used. Homely décor, traditional materials, a fireplace and cleverly organized interior make this cottage a great retreat when the weather is cooler.

Our Thoughts
We think you’ll remember staying at Casuccia di Ama as much for the hours ‘at home’ as for the days gadding about some of Tuscany’s best-known cities. Its modesty is its strength – the top terrace, for example, nestled into the roof against the adjoining villa, is a small but delightful place to watch the dusk come on. (And you’ll catch yourself nurturing an appreciation of Tuscany’s handmade roof tiles while you sip an evening aperitif here.) This is a well-kept and thought-out cottage – little wonder it draws people back for return visits.

Notes
Casuccia di Ama is semi-detached to a villa behind which belongs to a relative of the owner.
Its garden runs alongside a paved country road and, although it is protected from view by hedging, some noise from local traffic can be expected.
The road to the villa is all paved.
The property is fully fenced and pet-secured. Dogs under 25kg are allowed at this property.
1 sheltered parking space.

The round pool is partly sunken into the long, narrow, terraced garden. It has stone paving, sunbeds and an umbrella to one side, as well as a shower. The water is accessed by ladder steps.
Pool size: 4.5m diameter, 1.2m deep. Open May to September, weather permitting.

This house is more than big enough for two. Very clean, and literally everything you need on site. There is nothing we can think of to add to the comfort of the house, except maybe a dishwasher, but then we are really looking at details. House owner comes every two days in the morning, around 8AM to water the garden and pool maintenance. Her name is Renza, and i think it is important to know that her English is poor. So was our Italian. It didn't form any obstacles, thanks to Google Translate. The views on vineyards and olive trees from the house, garden, pool & upstairs patio are stunning. If we consider going back to Tuscany there is no doubt in our mind that it will be to this house. It was a third time Tuscany for us, and by FAR the best house, on every consideration. Property fully fenced, so also ideal for our dogs. There are two neighboring houses. One had a small child which was kind of loud. That doesn't bother us at all, but if you don't like the sound of other humans near by its important to know that you have to very near neighbors, however, OUT of sight because of very smart gardening and fencing. All privacy is guaranteed. You are also able to fully lock the property through a metal gate, perfect to feel safe. There is a alimentary shop in Lecchi, only 3 km away. Bread, veggies, fruit...all available. Fresh breakfast there every morning too! Nice friendly and helpful people. Bigger shop in Radda, 7 km away.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti Gaiole in Chianti Castellina in Chianti Greve in chianti Sienna and really, good food is everywhere... We are vegetarian, our options were somewhat more limited, but we gained weight, so that says it all ;-) Vegan would REALLY be a problem. Found a very nice restaurant in La Piazza!!!
