Ginestra, Castellina in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

1 bedroom 2 bathrooms 2 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 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.

Notes
Please note, Ginestra is insured for a maximum of two guests only. The stairs to the first floor have open treads. 
This property is fitted with exterior CCTV.
This property is situated 511 metres above sea level. This means that there is plenty of wind and fresh air, eliminating the need for air conditioning.

Pool
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.

Alles perfekt geklappt, von Schlüsselübeergabe bis zur Verabschiedung, der wahnisnnig nette Verwalter und der total bemühte Hausher haben das Abwesen innerhalb von kurzer zeit nach einem riesen Untewetter wieder flott gemacht und fast jeden Grashalm einzeln poliert.
Vielene liebn Dank dafür
Nur zu empfehlen für ein Besucher die Ruhe und Erholung brauchen
Local attractions Attraktion: die Landschaft rund um Ginestra, der Aussichtspunkt am Pool an dem das Abendessen und der Wein mit Blick bis zum Turm von Siena gleich nochmal so gut schmeckt!
