2 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 4 people In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Casa Minuccia is part of the hamlet of Villa a Sesta located in the heart of the Chianti region. It is a semi-detached villa at the beginning of the hamlet and consists of three different levels. Every floor has an outside terrace to sit and relax and enjoy the Tuscan landscape. The villas of Villa a Sesta are newly built but breath the Tuscan atmosphere.

The main eating terrace is on the lowest level, it's just outside the front door and shaded by a pergola. It has an iron table with four chairs and protected from view by the vegetation around it. The middle floor has a covered terracotta paved terrace which has wonderful views and is furnished with a couple of comfortable deck chairs. The top floor has a wonderful balcony with the best views of the three areas.

On entering into the lowest level there is a large, spacious, open plan kitchen and diner. The entire room is paved in terracotta and has a toilet to one side. In the centre of the room is a big, wooden dining table which can seat 8 people comfortably. The kitchen units are to one side. It is a fully equipped kitchen and includes induction hobs, an oven and a large fridge with separate freezer compartment. A peninsular provides plenty of workspace.

On the next floor there is bright and spacious lounge, also paved in terracotta. It has the traditional Tuscan villa ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The room is furnished with an overstuffed double and triple sofa. Light is provided by the doors opening onto a balcony with views of the nearby vineyards, and a second set of doors leading to the terrace. Completing the floor is a bathroom with shower.

On the top floor are the two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The first is a twin bedroom which cannot be made into a double. Double doors to the balcony provide the room with plenty of light. There is no wardrobe in the room.

The double bedroom has a beautiful iron bed, a wooden chest of drawers and two double door wardrobes which provide lots of storage space for both bedrooms. Like the twin bedroom it has a high ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. Double glass and wood doors provide access to the balcony.

Ideally positioned on the edge of the row of houses with pretty views of the vineyards and olive groves to one side.

Villa Sesta is a newly built stone hamlet composed of 6 villas. There is a plenty of local character within the hamlet which has many of the typical Tuscan aspects of stone and wood. Authentic building materials have been used to give the hamlet a typical Tuscan touch.

To one side is a lovely pool, completely fenced. The gardens of the property are  well maintained with local plants.

Each villa has its own well maintained garden and outdoor eating area. From the front of the property there are pretty views over the neighbouring olive grove and the vineyards that surround the property.

The large pool is located to one side of the hamlet, it is completely surrounded by a fence with a gate providing access to the pool area. Around the pool is a wide graveled area which is dotted with sunbeds and umbrellas. Beyond this is some sloped land planted with local shrubs.

There are some views from the pool area. They look over the hamlet buildings to one side, while the other is over an olive grove and vineyard.
There are metal steps to enter the 12x4 metre pool. It is 1.2 to 2 metres deep and open from mid-May to mid-October, weather permitting

Fantastisches Haus, hat unsere Erwartungen noch übertroffen. Ausstattung komplett, es fehlt an nichts. Schöner kleiner Pool war bereit, aber das Wetter hat nicht mitgespielt. Empfang durch Barbara sehr nett, gute Verständigung auf englisch.
Local attractions Aus eigener Erfahrung können wir die "Osteria Alla Villa" und das "Ristorante Villa di Sotto" direkt nahebei in Villa a Sesta uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Nette Leute, gutes Essen. Die Erkundung der näheren Umgebung (San Gusme, Brolio, Gaiole usw.) lohnt sich unbedingt. Auch Castelnuovo hat gute Restaurants zu bieten.
