Casuccia di Ama, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests 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 property is fully fenced and pet-secured. Dogs under 25kg are allowed at this property.
1 sheltered parking space.
Fire Place: Stove

Pool
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.

Zusammenfassend: ALLES IN ORDNUNG. Sehr nette Besitzer.
Gut ausgestattetes Haus, es ist alles da (z.b. 6 Schneidemesser, es funktioniert aber nur das Brotmesser:-)

Fliegengitter: Badezimmerfenster fehlt, viele Stechinsekten draußen/POOLBereich.
Am POOL liegen war eine Herausforderung/Anstrengung, es gab zig bösartige, große Bremsen, die sehr aggressiv warteten zu stechen, ich hatte anfangs 20-30, 2cmStiche, sie stachen gerne unter der Liege von unten durch die Handtücher. Feigenbaum und Olivensträucher locken die Biester an.

Sache mit Straße: Was ist "wenig befahren"? (Beschreibung Homepage).

Tatsache: ist eine Hauptstraße von Radda nach Lecchi kommend. Die Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit der Autos ist mindestens 65 Km/Stunde (ich selber), viele fahren schneller.
Tatsache: unter der Woche zwischen 7h-9h fahren viele Autos direkt am Haus vorbei, Italiener die zur Arbeit fahren und in den Abendstunden zurück, was dann aber nicht so stört. Also wacht man jede Früh von den krachenden, schnell fahrenden (65km-80km) Fahrzeugen auf. (Am Wochenende zischen dann schon mal 20 Motorradfahrer/Gruppen in hohem Tempo direkt am Haus vorbei).

Man MUSS wissen, Schlafbereich ist ca. 3Meter von Straße entfernt ist, ich bin mehrmals mitten in der Nacht senkrecht im Bett gesessen, vor Schreck, aus dem Schlaf gerissen, wenn ein LASTER mit 80KM in der ruhigen Nacht, gefühlt durch mein Schlafzimmer gebrettert ist. Noch dazu ist es so, dass der Schlafraum, es ist kein eigenes Zimmer, hat also KEINE Türe zum Schließen und ist nur abgeteilt durch eine OFFENE Wand vom Wohnbereich), befindet sich auf dem Grundstück der Familie (der Enkel mit Familie wohnt da), also der hintere Teil des Häuschen steht tatsächlich auf deren Stück Erde, was bedeutet, dass der Enkel jeden Morgen von MO-FR das schmiedeeiserne, knarrend-quietschende Tor zwischen 7.15h-7.20h aufschiebt, um sein Auto, das direkt vorTor geparkt ist, zu starten/wegzufahren.
Der Schlafraum/das Bett ist ca. 2 Meter von diesem Tor entfernt, ich wurde immer wach.

Davon abgesehen: inOrdnung!
Local attractions in Lecchi: Malborghetto Super Klasse: Osteria Perano von Frescobaldi in Florenz: Trattoria Borgo Antico (in Viertel "Oltrano" der Florentiner, also über dem Fluss) Colle Bereto in Radda Le Contrade Bistro ( super Pizza mit Aussicht) in Gaiole
To Tuscany team comments for this review:19.10.2020
Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your three weeks at Casuccia di Ama and value your comments. We were surprised and are sorry you were disturbed by the road. I can confirm that the bedroom is 10 meters from the road with partition vegetation. The road links the sleepy village of Lecchi and its 100 inhabitants with Radda in Chianti. Further we were surprised at your late night experience with a truck noise and reports of speeding which would seem also impossible on the bend in the road where the villa is found. We have checked the kitchen equipment and offered advice to the owner on bug management in the garden, we are working with the owners to see if we can do better.
