Lo Spicchio, Radda in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Amid the rolling hills of Chianti, where the fabled Classico wines are made, stands Lo Spicchio. The stout stone house, topped by a terracotta-tiled hat, is softened by sculpted sloping lawns studded with cypress trees and beautifully planted with fragrant roses, lavender and rosemary. It’s a generous retreat for just two guests, and while the welcoming owner is one of your neighbours in the adjacent hamlet, you could spend your time in splendid isolation.

It would, however, be hard to resist exploring your own doorstep. Two of Chianti’s prime wine towns, Radda and Gaiole, are just along the road and you can take your pick of some impressive wineries. There’s good walking and cycling for the energetic, too. The charming city of Siena, famed for the Palio horse race, held in high summer, is an easy drive, and even Florence is an option for a day trip.

Back at the villa, the beauty of the property’s traditional stone fabric, wooden beams and terracotta floors is tastefully embellished with colourful contemporary furnishings for a comfy country-cottage feel. This house rejoices in its position, with picture windows and French doors framing the views. They let the light flood in, which, combined with the low-beamed ceilings being painted in a light tone, gives the villa a delightfully airy feel. Upstairs, the double en-suite bedroom provides a cosy retreat.

But we suspect you’ll spend much of your time relaxing on the partly covered terrace at the rear of the villa. You’ll be naturally drawn to this completely private vantage point, from which you can survey the countryside or dip in and out of the spacious pool with its infinity edge. Even outside, this villa spoils its guests; follow the meandering stone pathways to discover more shady perches in the grounds that beg you to sunbathe or just sit for a while.

How often is it that get to travel from your home for nearly 16 hours, fly aross an ocean, take a groggy 2 hrs drive, get to your destination and immediately fell like you've arrived home again?
Our stay at Lo Spicchio exceeded all exceptions from the moment that the owners T&B greeted us with a warm welcome, including a basket of food, their own olive oil, and a home made dinner.
The villa is beautifully decorated, the grounds and pool are wonderfully cared for with lovely views of oil trees and distant hills. But it is the Lo Spicchio owners that truly made our stay feel special. Upon arrival, they immediately make you feel like you are visiting family and part of the local area... not just droppng by for a holiday rental stay. We enjoyed several weeks of great fall cycling weather, olive harvesting, winery visits, and just relaxing and exploring the area. T&B hosted an amazing and memorable Tuscan lunch with friends that was the highlight of our trip to Chianti.
