Casa Dante is one of two villas converted from two adjoining farm houses, creating very individual accommodation. Great attention has been paid in using natural materials, and restoring the original features wherever possible.

A flight of stone steps leads up to the paved terrace which you cross to reach the entrance to the villa. The front door opens into a lovely open plan ‘L’ shaped lounge/kitchen/diner, which has the traditional terracotta tiled floors and beamed and tiled ceilings throughout.

The very attractive kitchen area has modern fitted units, with an eye level built in oven, separate gas hobs, microwave oven, dishwasher and fridge with freezer section. The dining area with wooden dining table and six chairs is to the right through a wide brick archway.

There is a decorative open fireplace along one wall with the lounge area at the far end of the room. The lounge has two sofas a TV with some satellite channels, a DVD and CD player. Four windows run along the far wall allowing the light to flood into the room.

Steps up from the kitchen area lead to a small hallway with storage cupboard and a door to the ground floor bathroom which has a shower, WC and basin. Stairs from the hallway curve up to the first floor where the two bedrooms are located.

Both bedrooms have windows with views over the surrounding vineyards and can be made into doubles or twins as required. One of the bedrooms has a few extra steps up to it, as does the first floor bathroom, which has a full size Jacuzzi bath with hand held shower, basin and WC.

A further flight of stairs leads to the second floor laundry room with washing machine and separate dryer, iron and ironing board.
Outside the furnished terrace is the perfect spot for dining ‘al fresco’ or relaxing with a glass of wine made from the surrounding vines. From the terrace you have views across the vineyards and olive groves to the distant hillside. A short walk through the hamlet takes you to the pool area which also has breathtaking views over the Tuscan countryside.



The bedrooms can be configured as two doubles or even as four singles on request.  Please advise your preferences when booking.  There are mosquito screens on all the windows.


The hamlet of San Donato in Perano is located close to the Chianti towns of Gaiole and Radda, both of which have a choice of shops, restaurants and bars.

Resort: San Donato in Perano

San Donato in Perano grew from a cluster of small villages and houses built around the church of San Donato. It became fortified and joined a network of medieval castles which can still be seen on a clear day. During the 15th Century the fortifications were strengthened with the building of a double wall around the estate. Surrounded by fertile agricultural land the castle became a country residence to a wealthy landlord. It was bought in the 16th Century by the Strozzi family, who were an influential Florentine family.

The estate remained in the ownership of the Strozzi family for four centuries, when it was sold in 1967. It is now owned by a co-operative who decided to restore the hamlet and castle buildings, creating very individual accommodation. Great attention has been paid in using natural materials, and restoring the original features wherever possible.
The co-operative have 185 acres of vineyards, the estate is in the heart of the Chianti Classico region and therefore any Chianti wine produced is eligible to display the sign of the black rooster with the initials D.O.C. (Denominazione di origine controllata – Denomination of origin controlled). In addition to the cultivation of the vineyards the co-operative also have seventy acres planted with olive trees from which they make olive oil, bottles of which can be purchased in the hamlet.
The large swimming pool is set in an elevated position about 150 meter away from the villa with breathtaking views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Located beside an olive grove to one side of the hamlet, the pools paved surround is furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas. The pool has two ladders for access one, at the shallow end and one at the deep end, there are also changing rooms for the use of the hamlet’s residents.

Pool Info

The large swimming pool about 150 meter away from the villa with its far reaching views measures 8 metres by 15 metres. The paved surround is furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas and there are changing rooms for guests use. Set in the grounds of the hamlet next to olive groves the pool has a fenced surround for security.

Dit prachtige complex ligt midden in de Chianti streek dichtbij Radda. Alle steden en bezienswaardigheden zijn goed en doorgaans binnen 45 minuten bereikbaar. Casa Dante was een perfecte bestemming, super schoon, goed ingericht en een prachtig mooi verwarmd zwembad, een absolute aanrader en het beste wat wij tot nu toe bij To Toscane hebben geboekt.
Local attractions Op ca. 25 minuten ligt het wijn Landgoed Terrabianca bij het plaatsje Vagliagli, je wordt daar zo hartelijk ontvangen en zonder pardon wordt er direct een wijnproeverij georganiseerd. Wij hadden dit wijnhuis al eerder bezocht en ook nu hebben we weer prachtige wijnen en oliën meegenomen. Bezoek het familie restaurant in San Sano, top eten en een stuk goedkoper.

The Villa was in a great location and the checkin and checkout was very easy. Also the apartment had everything we needed.
The only thing was the kettle leaked and that the washing machine and dryer were located on the top level this may be hard for elderly people to get to.

The setting was beautiful. Natalia was very helpful in settling you into the Villa. The Villa was perfect. The standard of equipment was extremely good and everything was spotless. The Villa has a lovely layout. The Pool area was perfect and the view from the Pool area was amazing. I would recommend that you watch the sun set from the patio at the front of the Villa with a nice glass of local wine!!!
Local attractions Radda in Chianti is well worth exploring. Claudio's lasagne at Vertine is a Must. Gaiole in Chianti is also well worth visiting. Both the local villages have a selection of restaurants and both villages have shops and supermarkets

Casa Dante ist eine sehr schöne Anlage in sehr ruhiger Lage mit einem grandiosen Blick auf Weinberge und Olivenbäume. Die Ferienwohnung entsprach in allen Belangen unseren Erwartungen und war sehr gut eingerichtet. Der Poolbereich war optimal gelegen und topsauber. Hier kann man wirklich mal abschalten.

Great location nearby the small hamlet of Vertine and the town of Radda.
Spacious 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroom villa, in secure surroundings.
Fantastic pool, which was well maintained.
Friendly check in despite our late arrival.
Fast wifi
The driving instructions should say that there is an electric gate and you can only get let in by the key holder.
There are a lot steps, between each room.
If you English hoping for TV, there is only BBC World and Sky News in English- we had to use a VPN to watch any English TV on an iPad.
We were a family of 4, don't think there is enough kitchen equipment or seating for 5.
The Osteria on site had obviously been closed for some time, yet still appears on the website- very misleading!
Local attractions We thought Radda was much better than the similarly close Giaole- it has a great deli and good choice of restaurants. If travelling to Florence, get the the train for Montevarchi. Nearest big supermarket was in Montevarchi, there is a smaller one outside Radda.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

13.08.2014
Thank you for your feedback. We removed all the information on the Osteria over a year ago. There was still a picture that showed the sign - we have now removed this to save any confusion in future. Key collection details are on the reservation voucher given to all clients staying at Casa Dante. This says: if you expect to arrive late please call the key holder and let her know your expected arrival time. If you do not call you will not be able to get into the house.

We are repeat visitors, having stayed in late July 2013 during the heatwave. We loved it for all the same reasons this time, and you can see the prior review. In summary, the location, grounds and views, the huge , well equipped and immaculate pool area, the lovely nearbv town of Radda. the country walks, easy drives to other nearby towns (Pienza, Sienna, Montepulciano)...

It was really nice to exchange email and meet Natalia again. She is the best and nicest property manager you could hope for! She is so responsive and helpful day or night!

It's a wonderfull little house and really well maintained and clean. Everything works - the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms spacious, etc. etc.

The only thing is that the furniture in the living/dining room is quite bleak, hard, and uninviting. There are two small two-seater couches which are not that comfortable, a small coffee table, and in the dining area a simple expandable table and chairs. There's very little to soften it up. It would make an enormous difference to the ambience and enjoyment of the living room if they could add a rug or two, a nice armchair and large couch or L-shaped couch.

One minor thing is that the kitchen seems great at first look, but in fact, it has little usable counter space and has few pans etc. I noticed that the fridge has a broken shelf in the door which is how it was in 2013.

But, we will still return even if they don't change it, I'm sure!

Fabulous location. Natalia is lovely and very helpful at check-in. The walks on the "white road" directly from the property are an unexpected treat. Stunning views. And the utter quiet at night, the stars, the birds in the morning. Very beautiful, an ideal Tuscany getaway.
I agree with everyone else about the kitchen needing some upgrading. Seating in the living room could be more commodious as well.
Local attractions Le Contrade in Vinci: delicious, and a lovely sunset. The outdoor market in Radda. The little bar in Vertine. Badia a Coltibuono, and all the wineries in the area. The so-called hamburger place in Panzano. The sculpture garden south of Gaiole. We meant to spend time in Florence, but when you look closely, there is so much to do and see, and so many fabulous restaurants and wineries in the surrounding area, that a visit to Siena and the rest of the time in the Tuscany countryside fills the week quickly!
