La Casetta 4, Castellina in Chianti - Siena

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 guests 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 wood-burning stove in the lounge will keep you warm.

Notes
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.
Attached to the rear of the property is a studio apartment which is occasionally used by the owners family. It has its own private entrance.

Pool
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.
