Podere di Casalta is a finely restored Tuscan hamlet of 9 villas that maintains all its original characteristics, with well maintained, simple gardens of local plant, shrubs and herbs. It is located in the heart of the Chianti within easy reach of Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti.

The pool is located a few steps away from the villas and is protected by a beautiful stone wall to one side, while the other has towering cypress trees through which there are fantastic views of the Chianti hills covered in vineyards and olive groves.

The hamlet, once owned by Galileo Galilei, is composed of two buildings around a quaint, traditional stone courtyard in which there is a pizza oven. To one side is an independent cottage while near the pool is a second, small cottage with the laundry. In front of the laundry is a large, stone terrace furnished with tables and chairs for communal use.

Wat een prachtige plek, en een schitterende agriturismo, heel stijlvol! Prachtige keuken.
Het was toch jammer dat we geen privé- terrasje erbij hadden maar dat wisten we wel.
Zwembad was heerlijk, alles super schoon en goed onderhouden.
Het contact met Jessica was ook erg prettig.
Enig minpuntje was de weg er naar toe, die was erg stijl en had ik niet gelezen, maar dat us goed gekomen.
Al met al een fijne week, dankjewel!!!
Local attractions Greve, heerlijk gegeten op het plein Florence, schitterende stad! Poggibonsi SAN Gimignano Volterra Radda
