Girasole di Ama, Lecchi in Chianti - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

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

Are you an old romantic? Then you’ll love this little country cottage. Enveloped in the famous Chianti Classico vineyards, the quaint stone house is the perfect bolthole for lovebirds, delivering privacy, a sense of tradition in its pantiled roof, terracotta floors and wooden-beamed ceilings, and all the mod cons necessary to ensure your complete comfort. 

Quirky in design, this cottage is, in fact, upside down, with the ground floor given over to a bright open-plan space for cooking, eating and relaxing, while down the stairs is an airy bedroom with a large window and a good-size bathroom. Outside, take a seat on the covered terrace or recline on a sun lounger on the lawn to drink in the views of the medieval hilltop village of Lecchi. And if you head out to pound the pavements of nearby Siena or Florence, you’ll be sure to seek out a refreshing dip in the indulgent Jacuzzi on your return, probably glass in hand, sipping a little something made from the surrounding Sangiovese vines.

Ground Floor


Table and chairs, two armchairs, sideboard, cabinet, side table, fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, entrance.

Lower level


Double bed (cannot be converted to twins), wardrobe, chair, washstand, shelves.

Shower, sink, WC, washing machine.

Our Thoughts
This private little cottage has got it all going on, which is why it is an extremely popular choice with our customers. Nobody will bother you in this lovely private spot, you can just relax and immerse yourself within the idyllic landscape of vineyards and olive groves where the cottage is positioned. And while the house is compact, it delivers all the space you’ll need, with the added benefit of that large covered terrace, which you’ll be drawn to day and night.

One bedroom. One bathroom. Guests are provided with towels for the Jacuzzi and bathrobes. There is a free midweek linen and towel change. Guests are invited to sample wine, olive oil and selected meats free of charge once a week at the owners winery nearby.

There is a private Jacuzzi near the vineyard a short distance from the villa, open from May through to the end of September. Heating for the Jacuzzi is charged by consumption.

Die Sehnsucht nach der Toskana, ganz speziell dem Städtchen Radda und dem Ferienhaus Girasole di Ama führte uns im Juni 2018 zum zweiten Mal hierher.
Wir sind auch dieses mal wieder ausgesprochen gastfreundlich von der Familie Bencini aufgenommen worden und fanden "unser" Häuschen Girasole di Ama noch genauso wundervoll wie vor drei Jahren schon. Die Alleinlage zwischen Weinstöcken und Olivenbäumen mit Blick über die toskanischen Hügel ist einfach traumhaft. Und der Jaccuzi ist das ganz besondere I-Tüpfelchen, um einen entspannenden Urlaub richtig rund zu machen.
In der näheren und weiteren Umgebung gibt es viel anzusehen, Gutes zu essen und zu trinken.
Wir haben die Seite www.to-toskana.de bereits einigen befreundeten Paaren sehr empfohlen, und Daniela haben wir versprochen, auch selbst nochmals wiederzukommen.
Local attractions Sehenswerte Städte und Dörfer (Auswahl): Radda, Castellina, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Colle di Val d'Elsa (hier auch der Colle di Val d'Elsa Landschaftspark), Castelnuova Berardenga, Monteriggioni Empfehlenswerte Restaurants (Auswahl): Ristorante Malborghetto, Lecchi in Chianti Osteria Le Panzanelle, Lucarelli Pizza Pie, Radda in Chianti
