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.
Approach road - 1km bumpy unpaved road. A low vehicle is not recommended.
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.

Das erste Drittel der Zufahrt ist sehr beschwerlich und für gewöhnliche PKWs grenzwertig. Hier sollte mindestens die Einfahrt bei der Mühle begradigt werden.

Empfohlen wird auch eine Aktualisierung bei Google Maps. Die Navigation empfiehlt eine Zufahrt, die 200 mtr. entfernt liegt und nach ca. 2km auf einem privaten Anwesen endet.
