Poggio della Villa is a lovely stone, independent  Tuscan villa, located 2km from Radda in Chianti, to which it is possible to walk. The two floor villa is situated in a large, well maintained garden which has plenty of sun but also several areas of shade.

A short walk away is the sparkling pool which has plenty of seating to relax in the sun. It is not visible from the villa and has privacy provided from neighbouring properties by a hedge and other vegetation.

Around two sides of the villa is a lovely terracotta terrace which is well furnished. One side faces the pool area and has direct access from the lounge. It's furnished with a dining table with chairs and a comfortable rattan sofa. Continuing along to the side of the villa there are several armchairs to relax outdoors, while next to this, under an iron pergola is a large wooden table with six chairs to dine al fresco.

Inside the villa is a lounge, colourfully furnished with a double sofa and three armchairs. This room, like the rest of the ground floor has the traditional Tuscan villa characteristics of a terracotta floor and ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. To the back is a fireplace for the cooler evenings in Autumn and Spring. Two windows and a glass and wood door provide the room with light and look out to the pretty garden.

The kitchen-diner is located in front of the stairs, to the left of the lounge. The wooden dining table is in the centre of the room and can seat comfortably six people. The kitchen units run along two walls and provide plenty of storage and work space. It is fully equipped with a gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer compartment. To one side there is a window and door out to the side garden.

Next to the kitchen a small hall provides access to a bedroom with a beautiful iron double bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The bedroom has a high terracotta and wooden beam ceiling and it is furnished with a double door, wooden wardrobe. Light is provided by the glass and wood door which leads out to the furnished terrace for dining al fresco.

While to the left of the hall is a twin bedroom with access to the terrace to the front of the villa. The pretty iron beds cannot be moved to make a double bedroom. The room is furnished with a wooden wardrobe and an antique chest of drawers. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.

The third bedroom is on the first floor. Lovely granite steps lead to a small landing off which there is a bathroom with shower and the bedroom. The bedroom has a fantastic ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The iron double bed rests in the centre of the room and has a window on either side, one to the front and one to the back garden. A large wardrobe, bench and chest complete the furnishings of the room.

1 twin bedroom can be converted into a double if requested when booking.

The owner’s villa is near Poggio della Villa.However the owners have their own garden and entrance. The road to Radda has no sidewalk therefore care needs to be taken as it is a main road.There are other properties around the villa as it's a small hamlet of mostly local residents.
The two quiet dogs of the owners stay in a part of the garden in their own fenced area. They do not roam the premises.

The pool is about a 50metre walk through the pretty, well maintained garden, along a flagstone path which continues around the pool and leads into a lovely lawn. The area is protected from view by a tall hedge.

Dotting the area around the pool a several sunbeds and sun loungers with an umbrella providing the only shade as the area is in the full sun. There are other areas of the garden where trees provide shade to relax away from the warm Tuscan sun.
The pool is chlorine cleansed with iron steps to enter on one side. It's 10x5 metres and 1.1-1.6 metres deep. It's open from May to September, weather permitting.

Overall we loved our stay at this beautiful, private Villa and would highly recommend it. The Villa is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The check in process was smooth and easy and it was lovely to meet Vanessa and her mum. The high location of this villa is amazing with stunning views of the surrounding vineyards. The villa garden is absolutely gorgeous! It is huge and immaculately maintained, and a really peaceful, relaxing environment. The pool is fantastic, very clean and private and nice and shady in the evenings. The local supermarket is about a 5 min drive away and it sells everything. The local town of Radha is worth a visit (10 min drive) and there are other towns slightly further afield too. There are plenty of local restaurants and the food is excellent. The only things we felt could have been improved at the villa was perhaps the provision of some basic ingredients in the kitchen eg cooking oil, salt, pepper, etc. Also because not all electricity use is included in the cost of the villa, we worried about how expensive our electrical use would be and we would have preferred not to have had this concern whilst on holiday. The bathroom sockets were not compatible with our adaptors (which fitted in all the other sockets in the villa, just not the bathroom). The TV reception was poor for the majority of our stay and although this wasn't a major issue, it did prevent us from using the TV during some periods. Lastly, and this is not a criticism of the villa itself, the region has quite a lot of mosquitoes (which we weren't expecting). We recommend you come armed with plenty of repellant and use liberally especially in the evenings!
Local attractions We would highly recommend a trip to the nearby Pornanino organic olive oil producing farm. The owner was lovely and was very happy to show us around his farm and explain how the olive oil is produced. We were also able to try a range of flavoured oils and purchase these aswell - a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience and a must if you like olive oil! Also we recommend a visit to the cashmere goat farm a few hundred yards from the villa (it is very close but the roads are steep so we recommend that you drive).The lady there is very friendly & happy to let you wander around and see the goats. We even got to feed them as we happened to be visiting at feeding time. The goats are very well cared for and have a large area of land in which to feed and roam - the owner believes in a natural organic approach and the goats seem very content and appear to thrive in this environment. In the shop you are able to purchase many cashmere and goat products, all very natural and organic. Most of the restaurants we ate at were very good. The food was always fresh and very tasty. I cant recall the names of any specific restaurants,but our general experience of eating out was excellent.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:29.08.2016
OWNER COMMENTS: Thank you for your review. Items such as oil, salt and pepper are not left in the villa for health and safety reasons. As in the villa description, Electricity - 100kW is included in the price, usage over this is charged by consumption. Air-conditioning - charged by consumption. We would have happily helped by providing another adapter had it been requested. We are sorry you had trouble with TV reception. It can happen that the signal drops or is not strong enough in the countryside. We are at clients'disposal and always available to help if there are any issues or questions during your stay.
