Venus at Podere di Casalta, Castellina in Chianti - Siena

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

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

Venus is entered from the central courtyard of this typical Chianti hamlet. Inside there is plenty of space and the furnishings are of a high standard. A glass door from the lounge provides access to a lovely, large terrace that is furnished with a table, chairs and umbrella to dine al fresco and enjoy the fantastic views of the surrounding vineyards and rolling Chianti hills. All this is set beside a beautiful private garden with sunloungers. 

The living are is an open plan room. To one side is the lounge which is furnished with a comfortable sofa, large enough to seat three people. Next to a lovely iron table is a designer iron armchair covered with cushions.

To the other side of the room is the kitchenette which is well equipped and includes gas hobs, a small fridge with freezer compartment, a microwave with grill. A large tradition Tuscan villa sink of marble provides the kitchen with some local character. To the left of the room is a wooden table with chairs for 6 people.

Passing under an arch to the back of the room there is a small hall. To the left is a spacious twin bedroom with a lovely wooden chest of drawers. The beds are high quality and made of iron, keeping the typical Tuscan style. There is no wardrobe in the bedroom, however off the hall is a dressing room. This has a 5 door wardrobe and full length mirror.

To the left of the dressing room, there is a small corridor, off which is a spacious bathroom with large shower. At end of the corridor is a double bedroom with iron bed. Through the centre of the room is a large arch providing typical Tuscan character to the room. In one corner is an armchair and a large wardrobe. Plenty of light is provided from the two windows.

The twin room can be made into a double, if required this must be requested when booking.
Small sized dogs are welcome on request. Please confirm size and breed when booking as certain breeds may not be allowed.

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.

Podere die Casalta ist wunderschön inmitten der Weinberge des Chiantis gelegen. Die Ausblicke von unserer Terrasse sowie den Gemeinschaftsflächen der Anlage in die weitläufige Natur sind phantastisch. Das Appartement, das gesamte Gebäude und die Außenanlagen sind in tadellosem Zustand. Trotz der Hitze und Trockenheit sind alle Rasenflächen, Hecken und Sträucher ansprechend grün und akkurat geschnitten. Das Appartement war sehr sauber. Es ist geschmackvoll ausgestattet, so dass uns bei der täglichen Verrichtung nichts gefehlt hat. Einzig anzumerken ist, dass es etwas hellhörig war. Von den lebhaften Kindern unserer Nachbarn über uns haben wir jeden Schritt mitbekommen.
Die Betreuung durch Jessica war hervorragend. Sie hatte immer ein offenes Ohr und ist sehr hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend.
Die Poolanlage ist ebenfalls sehr sauber und gepflegt. Es sind ausreichend Liegen und Sonnenschirme vorhanden. Unsere Kinder hatten hier großen Spaß.
Insgesamt haben wir die Zeit im Venus in Podere di Casalta sehr genossen.
Local attractions Unser Lieblingsrestaurant in der Nähe ist "a la Piazza" auf dem Weg Richtung San Donato. Die beiden Supermetzger Dario Cecini in Panzano und Fallorni in Geve sind ein Besuch wert. Das kann man gut mit den Markttagen Samstags und Sonntags kombinieren. Der Weg entlang dem Fluss Elas bei Colle di Val d'Elsa war ein tolles Naturerlebnis. Auch die Altstadt war sehr schön. Ebenso haben uns wieder Siena, Volterra und San Gimignano besonders gefallen. Gerne fahren wir auch nach Radda. Das ist ein nettes, überschaubares Örtchen, dass trotzdem auch einige Shoppingmöglichkeiten bietet.
