Urania at Podere di Casalta, Castellina in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Urania is a lovely Tuscan villa for two, located in the central part of the Casalta hamlet. To the back of the villa, looking out over the Chianti hills there are views of Panzano. This side of the Urania has a pretty covered pergola furnished with table and chairs, all set beside a private garden with sunloungers.

The Tuscan villa is entered from the central courtyard. Inside is an open plan room with a well equipped kitchenette across one wall. It includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. There is also a traditional Tuscan stone sink.

Against the other wall is a large comfortable double sofa above which is an exposed stone wall providing the room with some of its original character. This room is completed by a round table with four chairs.

Passing under a typical Tuscan terracotta arch and down a couple of steps there is a little hall, off which is the bathroom and bedroom. The bathroom is spacious with a large shower across the back wall. The bedroom is a double room with plenty of space and furnished with a pretty iron bed with intricate lace work on the headboard. Completing the room is an armchair, mirror and double wardrobe.

The terrace is divided from the terrace of Urania's neighbour, Athena, by several tall potted plants.
Due to an interconnecting door this villa can be rented together with Athena, as Athena-Urania.
Small sized dogs are welcome on request. Please confirm size and breed when booking as certain breeds may not be allowed.

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.
Parking - available on site

The pool is located up several stone steps behind the laundry room. It is protected from the hamlet by a high stone wall and iron gate. The other three sides of the pool are open with a cypress and fir trees.

Surrounding the pool is a large sun deck dotted with several umbrellas and sunbeds. Above the pool is a second, rarely used car park. There are some views of the Chianti hills through the cypress trees. The pool is 12 x 7 meter, 1.2-1.6 metres deep. Open from May to September, weather permitting.

Es ist ein wunderschönes, gepflegtes Anwesen mit tollen Appartements und einer sehr schönen Poolanlage und einem außergewöhnlich schönen Ausblick. Wir haben die Aufenthalt sehr genossen und können es sehr empfehlen.Die Betreuung vor Ort war sehr gut und super freundlich. Wir bekamen Tipps für die Umgebung und in dem Appartement lag zusätzlich ein Buch in 4 Sprachen, welches die Umgebung und die Attraktionen und Sehenswürdigkeiten nebst Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants in der Umgebung beschrieben hat.Wir hatten einen perfekten, entspannten Urlaub und kommen gern wieder.
