Il Casetto, Radda in Chianti - Siena

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

A stunning old stone villa in a beautiful location, Il Casetto has been exquisitely reinterpreted in its design and decoration to make your time here utterly pleasurable. A tasteful eye has been cast over this traditional property, restyling it to accentuate original features and add all the requisite luxuries for sumptuous modern-day living. The main lounge and dining room both have walls of windows, directing the eye to where it belongs, the views of the surrounding vineyards and hills. The kitchen is a feat of architecture; set in a former storage room with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, its bare stone exposed, this is now a large atmospheric space in which the chef in your party (or a private chef if you prefer) can get down to some serious cooking. Upstairs the romantic en-suite bedrooms, two of which open onto a terrace, will guarantee the sweetest dreams.

Only the chirrup of a bird is likely to break the silence outside; this is a place to embrace the Tuscan countryside, even though you are just a short drive from the fortified village of Volpaia and market town of Radda, with Siena and Florence achievable day trips. We challenge you to drag yourselves away from the views of the valley. The upper and lower terraces and the pergola by the lawn (an essential dining space on a hot summer’s day or cool evening), provide three well-appointed perches from which to gaze, as does the edge of the private infinity pool.

Our Thoughts
Of all our villas, this is one of our favourites. Everything from the sofas to the bathrooms has been chosen to ensure there is a seamless style to the interior throughout, which balances character with comfort. The undisputed highlight is the extraordinary kitchen converted from an old storage cellar. From the lush green lawns to the redolent terraces, the luxurious pool to the plush bedrooms, there is much to like about Il Casetto.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms, all en-suite. Air-conditioning included in rental price.

The infinity pool is next to the lower terrace and lawn.

After reading about Il Casetto on the To Tuscany website, we had high expectations. They were easily met. The views are breathtaking. The house itself is rather elegant and very comfortable. It's the sort of place one dreams about, but never expects to find. Both patios provide extraordinary views of vineyards, olive groves, rolling hills and distant ancient towns. The dining room and kitchen area are ideal for entertaining. The living room is exactly as pictured on-line: beautiful stone walls and massive wood beams. The living space is ample enough to provide privacy for all. It's also possible to walk up the road to the ancient castle and tiny town of Volpaia, a lovely place for lunch or dinner. For us this was a three-generation family gathering. It will provide a wealth of memories for years to come. There is simply nothing I would want to change about Il Casetto.
Local attractions We had visited Tuscany before, so we made only one day trip into Florence, an easy hour's drive away. Our interest was in visiting the small towns. Radda is a gem. For us it had just the right mix of history, great vistas, good food and interesting residents who were happy to chat with us. Fabrizio at Enoteca Toscana will answer all your wine questions. He and his spouse also own Dante 's across the street. It's a good place for lunch. We found the best pizza at Lo Sfizio di Bianchi, a nice sidewalk cafe in the wonderful nearby town of Gaiole. Many locals eat there. It's a regular stop for touring cyclists also. We are gelato lovers and visited at least one gelateria every day. Our favorites were Gelateria di Castellina in Castellina and Sandy's in Radda. The former also has a store in Radda. Sienna has two excellent gelaterias on the main square. Our favorite restaurant for dinner was Osteria le Panzanelle just outside the town of Radda in Lucarelli. Antica Trattoria La Torre in Castellina was also good. For farmers' markets, we found the one in Poggibonsi to be the best. Our favorite wineries were Brancaia and Vignavecchia. The latter has a long history. We also had a dinner prepared for us at Il Casetto be two local chefs. it was outstanding! We had four courses in typical Tuscan style. The ingredients were local. The pasta was made in our kitchen. We had bruschetta, ravioli, veal and chocolate tortino. The two chefs are Alessia and Barbara and use the name "Le due Cuochine. They are amazing. Not only are they very good chefs, but they also are delightful persons. Their prices are very reasonable.
