Super clean and very comfortable. The villa had a "home-like" feel to it, which made it all the more relaxing to be in. Great pool and immaculate, well maintained grounds. Quiet location with views of the mountains. We had a smashing time there.
Local attractions Papposolino in Cavriglia offers very good food at reasonable prices. Le Botte in Bosca in Radda also offers delightful food but is pricier. Siena is of course interesting to visit but finding a parking space is a real challenge.

Schönes, ruhig gelegenes Grundstück und ein urig-gemütliches Häuschen.
Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt und der Pool großartig.
Die Eigentümer wohnen zwar gleich nebenan, jedoch ist die Privatsphäre voll gewährleistet.
Einerseits machen die alten Möbel den Charme des Hauses aus, andererseits vermissten wir etwas den modernen Komfort. Vor allem die Sitzgelegenheiten im Wohnzimmer empfanden wir als weniger bequem. Weil der kleine Flachbildfernseher jedoch trotz großer Zahl keine deutschen Programme hatte, haben wir das Wohnzimmer kaum genutzt.
Auch den "Rittersaal" - das große Esszimmer mit Kamin haben wir nicht genutzt weil es zwar sehr schön aber nicht praktisch gelegen ist und für uns zu überdimensioniert war.
Wir haben dafür den wunderschönen Essplatz im Freien umso mehr genossen.
Da wir wenig gekocht haben, hat es uns auch nicht gestört, dass nicht alle Gasherdplatten funktionierten. Das Badezimmer im oberen Geschoß könnte etwas modernisiert werden.
Ziemlich lästig waren die vielen Stechmücken, die unseren Sohn leider als Leckerbissen entdeckt haben. Die Mittel aus der örtlichen Apotheke sind jedoch sehr gut und reduzieren die Stichzahl erheblich. Die vor Ort gekauften
UV-Mückenschutzstecker hielten leider nicht was sie versprachen.
In Summe haben wir hier einen schönen Urlaub verbracht.
Local attractions Nach einer kurzen Wanderung zur Burgruine in Montegrossoli kann man einen wunderbaren Ausblick über die sanften Hügel genießen. Da der Besitzer erkrankt ist, war die wunderschön gelegene Osteria di Montegonzi geschlossen (bis Frühjahr, dann wird entschieden wie/ob es weitergeht). In Cavriglia selbst hat uns das Papposileno begeistert. Das Alla Locanda Della Miniera ist ein Restaurant ohne Schnörkel oder Deko bietet aber ausgezeichnetes Essen - nicht nur die Pizza ist phantastisch. Sienna, Florenz, San Gimignano, Lucca u.a. Städte und Dörfer sind sehr sehenswert. Der Besuch des Antikmarktes im nahe gelegenen Arezzo war ein witziges und interessantes Erlebnis. Natürlich haben wir auch einige Weingüter besichtigt - in die malerische Burganlage Volpaia sind wir über eine staubige Schotterpiste eher durch Zufall gelandet (von der anderen Seite führt aber eine sehr gute Straße hin). Das Il Palagio haben wir bewusst aufgesucht, den Hausherren Sting, jedoch leider nicht angetroffen aber einige seiner Bioprodukte getestet und gekauft. Die Lebensmittel und unser Grillfleisch haben wir im Mercateo in Montevarchi gekauft, wo eine große Auswahl hochwertiger, regionale Produkte angeboten wird.

This is a lovely villa in a quiet location. The pool area is particularly good. The villa was very clean, Anna does an excellent job. Good linen and towels.The new air conditioning units work well and were extremely welcome as the weather was hot. Another unit in the downstairs lounge area would improve things even further. The change of linen & towels after the first week was very welcome. One slightly odd aspect was the lack of cleaning materials in the kitchen. i.e. no sink cloth, no washing up liquid, no spare rubbish bags etc. etc. We had to buy everything straight away. Even so, I would highly recommend this villa.

Maison et terrain magnifiquement entretenus (belle décoration intérieur et extérieur)! La température de la piscine est idéale. Tout était parfait à l'exception d'un coq qui chantait faux à 4 heures du matin ;-)
La villa est située dans la campagne tout en étant proche du village à 10 minutes à pied du centre. La situation est idéale pour visiter le Chianti qui à nos yeux fait parti d'une des plus belles régions que nous ayons vues. Aucune grand-route ne traverse cette région et cette pour cette raison que le paysage est époustouflant.

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately due to the weather conditions there were an extraordinary amount of mosquitoes. The owner does all they can to reduce the problem. They treat the house at the beginning of every season, they supply plug in repellents and have screens on the windows.

Die Hausübergabe erfolgte problemlos, herzliches Willkommen. Das Ferienhaus und die Anlage entsprachen genau den Fotos , die wir bei unserer Buchung gesehen haben. Der Erholungseffekt in dieser Umgebung ist sehr groß. Wir waren auf jeden Fall sehr begeistert und können das Haus bzw. die Anlage beruhigt weiter empfehlen.

Das ganze Anwesen ist ein Traum und wir hatten unsere völlige Ruhe und konnten uns sehr gut entspannen. Die Hausherrin ist eine unglaublich liebevolle Dame und rundet das Gesamtbild ab :-)
Das Einzige was zu beanstanden ist, dass es kein Spülmittel und keine Grundnahrungsmittel wie Zucker & Salz/Gewürze gab. Da wir am Anreisetag staubedingt leider sehr spät ankamen, hatten schon alle Geschäfte geschlossen und öffneten erst wieder am Montag. Sollte dies in der Beschreibung gestanden haben, dann habe ich es überlesen. Ansonsten gibt es wirklich rein gar nichts zu bemängeln.
Local attractions Da wir immer selbst gekocht haben, kann ich keine Auskunft über Restaurants geben. Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena und sogar Lucca sind immer eine Reise wert und sehr empfehlenswert...
