Il Girasole, Casetta - Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Split-level living is just one of the benefits offered by this cleverly designed villa. With communal areas on both floors, it’s possible to divide up your group of six appropriately to afford a little independence where it might be appreciated. Indeed, this could be a good option for a family holidaying with the grandparents who can relax on the lower floor with their own lounge, en-suite bedroom and direct access to the outdoor areas.

Other assets of this two-storey villa are the bright spacious open-plan areas for cooking, dining and relaxing and airy bedrooms on both levels. There’s no skimping on traditional features, with terracotta floors and tiled and beamed ceilings throughout. Outside the lawn is a pleasant place to laze around, while the pergola offers a shady place to relax and dine. Or linger in the private pool and take in the open views of fields of wheat and sunflowers and the hills beyond. But be sure to make time to explore the local area, too; there’s a village within walking distance, Siena is only 13km away and the vineyards of Chianti are easily reached.

Our Thoughts
If you’re seeking a detached villa that doesn’t feel too isolated, this property will serve you well. Set in its own grounds with a private pool, Il Girasole is adjacent to a hamlet, a short walk from a village with a pizzeria, and a quick hop to Siena and other local highlights. The property itself has much to recommend it, especially the versatility of the interior with lounges and kitchenettes on both floors. There are plenty of outdoor spots to enjoy, too. Everyone can come together on the upper terrace, lawn and pool, while those staying on the lower level can escape to their private patio for a little peace and quiet.

Three bedrooms. Two bathrooms, one en-suite. Air-conditioning is charged on consumption. The property is fully fenced and safe for pets if all the gates are kept closed.

The above-ground prefabricated pool, entered via metal ladder steps, is surrounded by a fence with a gate. The furthest edge of the pool is level with the fence, an infinity edge that affords uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. There are sun loungers and a parasol on the adjacent lawn and a gazebo with table and chairs on the nearby terrace, with a pizza oven close by.
Pool size: 7m x 3m, 1.4m deep. Open May through September, weather permitting.

The owner tried to be helpful on arrival, but we were limited our lack of Italian and her lack of English - pehaps an info file with details re wifi, local shops, and departure arrangements would have saved us all a lot of hassle
The owner's son turned up later and sorted everything out
When the aircon broke they fixed it quickly - but it was surprising that the aircon was only in 1 bedroom and in the kitchen,
The fly net on the klitchen door was broken so we got bitten on our first night
There was a downstairs area - kitchen, sofa, table, but we were told not to use it - again a bit odd.
But all in all, we had a great holiday in a fantastic rural location, and we would go again.
Local attractions Pizano - restaurant on the walls behind the Duomo; the whole area is worth the drive.
