It is an amazingly clean, comfy and well equipped villa.The owners are warm welcoming friendly and generous hosts who want your stay to be perfect. We will definitely return for another visit, as it is a place where we feel we can totally relax and recharge our batteries.It is our happy place.

Liebevoll eingerichtetes Häuschen. In der Küche mangelt es an nichts. Genügend Geschirr, Gläser (Wein rot und weiss, Grappa, Saft), Besteck sowie Töpfe inkl. einer Pfanne vorhanden. Mikrowelle, Kaffeemaschine, Wasserkocher, Toaster und eine Nespresso Kaffeemaschine gehören auch zur Einrichtung. Wir waren schier begeistert und fühlten uns sehr wohl. Der Whirlpool ist ebenfalls klasse und man hat von dort aus einen tollen Blick. Das Häuschen steht wirklich mitten im Weinberg und Olivenhain. Man dort einfach seine Ruhe. Wir wurden toll empfangen und die Weinprobe war super. Wir bedanken uns ganz herzlich bei Daniela und ihrer Familie!
Local attractions Wir können Radda di Chianti mit seiner Altstadt, seinen Restaurants und dem herrlichen Ausblick in die Zona di Chianti sehr empfehlen. Dort gibt es auch einen kleinen Coop zum Einkaufen.

I cannot praise highly enough either our hostess Daniela and her family, or this delightful villa. Daniela went to so much trouble to ensure that we had the most wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, from the peaceful location tucked away in the vineyard with its incredible views and sunsets, to the villa itself, which had everything we could possibly want, and more.
It was wonderful to sit on the veranda for our meals and to relax in the jacuzzi at night under the most incredible starry skies. The bedroom, partly below ground level, remained comfortably cool and, like the rest of the villa, was immaculate and beautifully furnished.
During our stay, we were treated to a wine tasting accompanied by Daniela's home cooked food at the family's nearby winery - what an enjoyable experience! The wines, and the extra virgin olive oil produced by the Bencini family, are superb. We were sad to leave this fabulous place and will definitely make a return visit.
Local attractions This area of Tuscany has so much to offer and has breathtaking views across the countryside. We enjoyed exploring a number of medieval towns including nearby Radda in Chianti and Castellini, both with pretty streets and shops. In Castellini we spent a very enjoyable hour in Lucia Volentieri's gallery and workshop in Via Trento e Trieste. Her original ceramics and artwork are evidence of her talent and make wonderful mementos. The nearest village, Lecchi, is also worth visiting. As well as a friendly grocery shop for all our provisions, it has Malborghetto restaurant which we visited twice during our stay. The food was delicious, the service friendly and faultless, and the garden a lovely area to enjoy our food and wine. We visited Florence twice by train, from Montevarchi. Although about a 30 minute drive to the station, the train fare was inexpensive (12 euros return), the service frequent and we parked for free just a short walk from the station. Much less hassle than driving into Florence and parking there! Florence itself is well worth visiting but we would recommend pre-booking attraction tickets as the queues can be hours long if you don't!

Ons verblijf in Girasole di Ama was in één woord geweldig! De ligging is fabelachtig tussen de wijngaarden en olijfbomen. Alles was superschoon en alles wat je nodig hebt was aanwezig. De eigenaresse Daniela is zeer gastvrij en hartelijk en haar olijfolie is heerlijk! Ze heeft ons de meest heerlijke producten uit de streek laten proeven. Het huis is comfortabel en van alle gemakken voorzien. Groot voordeel is dat de slaapkamer beneden is waardoor het 's nachts altijd lekker koel is.
Het is een perfecte plek om helemaal tot rust te komen.
Local attractions Siena, Florence, Castellina Radda, Giaole, Lecchi San Gimignano alles is leuk! Wij hebben zoveel gezien dat we geen favoriet hebben. Wij gaan zeker terug naar deze streek.

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad. Alles was super goed verzorgd door Daniela. De wifi deed het niet de eerste twee dagen maar werd direct opgelost. Alles was erg goed schoon en de jacuzzi was geweldig! Wat een prachtig uitzicht. Ook de proeverij, ondanks dat we geen echte wijndrinkers zijn was erg leuk en goed verzorgd door Daniela! Af en toe kwamen haar man en zoon wat spullen pakken uit de schuur achter het huisje, maar daar hadden we geen last van. Huisje ligt op ong. 1 km van de eigenaren. We hebben genoten!
Local attractions We hebben heerlijk gegeten bij Malborghetto in Gaiole. Gemiddelde prijs, vriendelijke bediening en goed eten! Ook in Radda zitten verschillende leuke restaurantjes. Zeker de moeite waard om een dag naar Florence te gaan. Pisa is vanaf het huisje wat te ver. Ook de markt in Siena op woensdag is de moeite waard (ga heel vroeg vanwege parkeren!) Omliggende plaatsjes als Radda en Castellina in Chianti zijn ook erg leuk om door te struinen, leuke toeristische maar ook plaatselijke winkeltjes.

Girasole di Ama war ein traumhaftes Häuschen inmitte der Olivenbäume und Weinreben. Überragend war der Jacuzzi, der uns jeden Abend, nach ausgedehnten Motorradausflügen zb. nach Sienna und Florenz, die nötige Entspannung gab. Wenn man einen wunderschön entspannten und ruhigen Urlaub verleben will, dann ist man dort wie im Paradies.
Local attractions Siena und Florenz waren auf jeden Fall eine Reise Wert. Da wir mit dem Motorrad im Urlaub waren, war das gesamte Umland für wunderschöne Ausflüge geeignet. Touren nach San Sano, Radda in Chianti, Malborghetto in Lecchi usw. waren wunderschön. Besonders für Mopedfahrer ein Traum. In Radda waren wir super Pizza essen.

Es ist wunderschön und vor allem ruhig in den Weinbergen gelegen. Das Schlafzimmer ist im Keller, was bei heißen Temperaturen besonders angenehm ist.
Besonders gut hat uns die Weinprobe mit Verköstigung toskanischen Spezialitäten im Casanuova di Ama gefallen. Nicht verpassen beim Aufenthalt in Girasole di Ama.
Der Wirlpool im Garten ist ein Traum und superentspannend nach einem Tag Sightseeing in einer der schönen Städte in der Nähe.
Local attractions San Gimignano, Volterra und Arezzo sind wunderschön. Außerdem waren wir in Castellina, Pisa und Siena, und haben uns das Castello di Brolio angeschaut. Florenz ist schön, aber sehr touristisch. In Siena war grade Palio, daher auch ziemlich voll mit Leuten und leider dürfen ganz offensichtlich Autos in der Fußgängerzone fahren. Das stört ziemlich.

As this was the fourth time we have stayed at Girasole I don't really think I need to say anymore. We love it. It is exceptionally clean,comfortable and peaceful. The welcome we recieve makes us feel very special. We shall return for a fifth visit.
Local attractions We love visiting the owner at her vinyard to try the wine and have a chat. Also having a walk around Radda people watching while enjoying a coffee. But my favourite place is the small cafe in lecce because the canoli pastry is the best i have tasted and enjoy them most mornings with a coffee.

La proximité des villages et surtout de la ville de Sienne. La tranquillité des lieux . La villa avait tout ce qu'il fallait pour bien fonctionner durant notre séjour et finalement la beauté du site.

Oupssss! La gentillesse et le bon service de Yuri, le fils de Daniela .
La chambre à coucher au sous-sol(humidité des lieux) et la salle de bain aussi au sous-sol donc peu empêcher facilement l'autre personne de se reposer ou dormir en paix.
Un peu petite finalement cette villa.
Le prix est très dispendieux pour le que la villa a à offrir!

Hoewel de natuur in mei nog op gang moest komen en dit ons eerste bezoek aan de Chianti in de lente was, hebben we met Girasole di Ama een stek gevonden om zeker naar terug te keren.
Jarenlang hebben we ons afgevraagd welke mooie villa achter de automatische poort - die door 2 pinetas bewaakt wordt – verschool. Dit jaar waren we er zelf te gast.
Het huisje ligt midden in de olijf- en wijngaarden van de familie Bencini. Hier ben je van rust en privacy verzekerd! En wat kan je je nog meer wensen met het Toscaanse landschap in je onmiddellijke omgeving: cipressen, olijfbomen en ontluikende wijnranken.
Het huisje is comfortabel en smaakvol ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Ook bij frisser weer kan je makkelijk de avond binnen doorbrengen bij de satelliet-TV in comfortabele fauteuils. Eten kan al fresco onder de veranda of binnen. Ook erg praktisch is de wifi-voorziening. Onze gastvrouw Daniela heeft aan alles gedacht bij de inrichting tot en met een verscholen kluis aan toe! De slaapkamer bevindt zich beneden en misschien nog wat frisjes in de lente, uiterst aangenaam voor de zomermaanden.
Wij waren de eerste gebruikers van de jacuzzi die de dag voor onze aankomst klaar was en waar we onder het genot van een Chianti Classico tot 2x toe gebruik van hebben gemaakt.
Daarnaast is het na 6 jaar Chianti altijd weer thuiskomen bij Daniela, Luciano en hun zoon Yuri! Wat een hartelijkheid en gastvrijheid! De eerste avond werden we verwend op een degustazione met uitgebreide Toscaanse lekkernijen want Daniele weet wat lekker koken is.
Vol trots heeft Yuri zijn vino Bianco -Matuttino- aan ons laten proeven die hij als gediplomeerd vinoloog voor het eerst zelfstandig heeft samengesteld.
Wij hebben volop genoten en wij weten het wel zeker: dit wordt een vast vakantieadres!

Niets, helemaal NIETS!

Very clean. Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful, tranquil location. Friendly, helpful proprietor. Particularly enjoyed an evening wine-tasting with Daniella Bencini, the proprietor.
There wasn't anything that I didn't like, but it is quite remote, so a car is a must!
Local attractions I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but it is in Lecchi and the chef's name is Simone. He is also the owner, the food was fantastic. I also really enjoyed visiting Radda and Castellina. Further afield I loved Siena.
