Ginestra, Castellina in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 2 bathrooms 2 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Set in the foothills of Chianti, this delightful villa for two people has near-360° views of undulating Tuscan countryside. Ginestra is wonderfully positioned for visits in every direction – arrayed to the east are the wine-growing region’s lovely historic towns of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole; to the north, there’s Panzano, Greve and Florence; to the south, Siena; to the west, Poggibonsi and San Gimignano. Castellina, the closest of these, is just 10 minutes away; Florence takes about an hour by car.

But these are far from Ginestra’s only indulgences. Step inside and you’ll encounter a loved home, with carefully chosen prints and paintings, ceramics and rugs. Outside, deck chairs are just where you’d want them, on a small viewing platform overlooking the neighbouring vineyard. Behind, closer to the private pool and under the shade of a tree, are a table and chairs – just the spot for a cooling afternoon drink. If it’s warm, choose between two outdoor dining tables for al-fresco meals, one on the terrace next to the kitchen, the other outside the lounge. In colder weather, eat inside and snuggle up by the fireplace.

Our Thoughts
When it comes to relaxing, you are spoilt for choice here: with two charming lounges, one inside and another outside (the main terrace by the house has an outdoor sofa and two armchairs); plus two al-fresco dining spaces, a generous pool and furnished poolside. And that’s before you’ve left the villa. Ginestra has so much to offer, you’ll probably want to visit several times. If you do, or you already know others locally, it’s a great place to invite friends back to for lunch or dinner.

One bedroom, one study/bedroom. Two bathrooms. Please note, Ginestra is insured for a maximum of two guests only. The stairs to the first floor have open treads. Small dogs are allowed and the garden is fully fenced. There are 2 uncovered parking places on site.

The large pool, across the garden from the house, is surrounded by a stone-paved terrace with sunloungers and deck chairs. It has a simple shower and ladder steps.
Pool size: 10m x 5m, 1.2m-1.8m deep. Open from May through September.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket. By contacting your To Tuscany villa specialist in advance and providing them with a shopping list you will find the items in your villa on arrival. Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​
