La Casetta 4, Castellina in Chianti - Siena

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Carved into the upper slopes of one of western Chianti’s hills, this pleasing converted hay barn has everything you need to enjoy its secluded position, while also being an excellent jumping off point for visiting some of Tuscany’s most popular towns and cities. Florence is just over an hour away in the car, and San Gimignano and Siena half that distance. You’re on the edge of Chianti’s wine-producing heartland here. Castellina, which has a clutch of great restaurants, is your local town and it’s a delight to get lost in the hills and villages beyond.

Little signs, such as the herbs to the side of the entrance steps, tell you that La Casetta is a treasured retreat, so it’s perhaps no surprise to learn that its owner is an artist and traveller. Its comfortable furnishings make this an easy place to feel at home in, though not every home is set into an olive grove with a private pool and acres of sky. Two bedrooms, both with en-suites, make this well suited for either small groups of family or friends, or a couple.

Our Thoughts
La Casetta combines two wonderful qualities: homeliness and peacefulness. We think you’ll love arriving here, going slow in the morning to enjoy a swim in the saltwater pool and sunbathe, going out to see the sights and, perhaps, coming back in good time to enjoy another swim and an evening meal on the terrace. If you’re visiting in cooler weather, the fireplace in the lounge will keep you warm.

Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms, both en-suite. The owner’s two dogs live with the housekeeper in the owners house in another part of the estate – they are friendly and roam the driveway. On arrival, fresh eggs, milk, bread and fruit juice will await you in the kitchen.

The chlorine-free pool, which has a stone-paved surround, sits within a grass terrace slightly above the villa. Sun loungers, deckchairs and a parasol make this a lovely spot to enjoy views of the surrounding hilltop. The water is accessed by Roman steps at one end.
Pool size: 10m x 4m, 1.6m deep. Open from May through September, weather permitting.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket. By contacting your To Tuscany villa specialist in advance and providing them with a shopping list you will find the items in your villa on arrival. Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​

Wenn man das "La Casetta 4" betritt, merkt man sofort, dass man an einem speziellen Ort ist. Es stehen Brot, Eier, Milch, Schinken und eine Flasche Wein bereit bei der Ankunft. Das liebevoll eingerichtete Haus ladet zum Verweilen am Kaminfeuer, auf dem Sitzplatz oder am Pool ein. Es ist alles da, was man braucht zum Kochen und um sich wohl zu fühlen. Wir hatten das Glück, die Besitzerin persönlich kennen zu lernen und einige Geschichten über sie und das Haus zu erfahren. Auf dem Anwesen sind zwei liebenswerte Hunde unterwegs, die einen jeden Morgen fröhlich begrüssen.
Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!!!
Local attractions - Das Restaurant "Tre Porte" in Castellina ist einen Besuch wert, wenn man mal nicht selber Kochen möchte. Das Essen ist sehr lecker! - In Castellina gibt es einen Coop Supermarkt, wo man alles findet was man braucht. - Einen guten Kaffee am Morgen gibt es direkt daneben. - Wenn man auf einen Markt gehen möchte, empfiehlt sich jener in Poggibonsi, der jeweils am Dienstag stattfindet. Laut der Besitzerin sind da die Selben Verkäufer und Stände wie in Siena, nur hat es ein wenig mehr Platz. Die Lebensmittel, die man da kaufen kann sind sehr gut und günstig. - Im Haus liegt ein Ordner mit allen nützlichen Informationen zum Haus, zu Castellina und zur Umgebung.
