Lamole is situated in a beautiful position, 600 meters a.s.l., in the heart of Chianti, the most pure region of Tuscany, only 8 km from Greve in Chianti. Entirely hilly, harsh and soft, covered in serried rows of wines interspaced by olive groves and lines of cypresses. The light is astounding: on clear days you can see forever, on misty days the colours and the objects are seen as through a veil and one feels leaving in a Renaissance landscape in peace and beauty. Here was the setting for the film of Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing. PodRidaldi, an ancient farmhouse, is a garden patio along a rose garden and big open spaces immersed in the vineyards and in the iris fields (in flower in may), witch are said to give its very special bouquet to the Chianti wine. The house is along side a winding country lane, too narrow for much traffic. The windows views are stunning in every direction. There are immense estate lands to walk through the ancient soil terrace, the woods the vineyard.
Chianti-region: This region is absolutely dreamy, one of the most famous regions, you have to know the heart of Chianti, the vine, the landscape, the small roads with olives and cypresses in this magic atmosphere.
Further info: The area of Lamole dates back to the Middle Age present owners, both university professors and keen gardeners, are established here since 50 years; they use part of the house themselves in the summer. The place is well cared for. With comfortable old-fashioned and antiques furniture, in a special, pleasant leaved-in atmosphere. The windows views are stunning in every direction. There are immense estate lands to walk through the ancient soil terrace, the woods, and the vineyards.
Lamole was a lovely place to stay, quiet and peaceful. The house was clean, well-equipped and comfortable and the terrace was great for barbequeing, or just sitting watching birds and wild life. There were deer and foxes down in the vineyard and one day a stone marten (un faino) wandered through the garden completely ignoring us - amazing!! We didn't bring a car but the mini bus took us to Greve on the few times we wanted to go any distance, e.g. Firenze, Fiesole, etc. One day we walked to Greve, another day to Volpaia, through the woods to Panzano, up to Monte San Michele - all great walks. If you are into nature photography it is a fantastic place for butterflies. Local people are very kind and helpful and praised my stumbling Italian (which greatly improved during our two week stay). And of course we must mention the restaurant where we had the best meal of our whole holiday.
We had a very pleasant week in this well-furnitured house. The Housekeepaers were very kind and helpful. The surrounding nature is really beautiful for a walk. 400m from the house is a great Restaurant called Ristoro di Lamole with a beautiful view. The only samall defect was that the terrace cannot be accessd directly from the house. But this was not really a problem. Parking was really good directly at the side of the house.
Wir, Ich und meine Freundin waren letztes Jahr in Podere Ridaldi in den Ferien und es war einfach wunderschön! Das Haus selber liegt in einer traumhaften Lage. Die Terrasse ist zwar nicht direkt zugänglich sorgt aber trotzdem für unvergessliche Momente! Wir haben das gepflegte Haus sehr genossen und uns von dieser einmaligen Gegend, der Landschaft, der Küche und dem Wein einfach verwöhnen lassen. Sehr Romantisch!
Die Wohnung ist sauber und ordentlich. Das Geschirr ist etwas knapp, 1 großer Topf, 2 kleine, exakt 4 Tassen etc.
Sind die Vermieter in ihrer Wohnung, hört man die Gespräche durch eine abgeschlossene Verbindungstür durch.
Das größte Manko: Die Terrasse ist nicht von der Wohnung aus zugänglich. Man muss aus der Haustüre, auf der Straße ums Haus herum in den Garten. Für Kinder nicht geeignet und wir haben dann auch nicht draußen gegessen, da der Weg zu umständlich ist. Auch draußen sitzen mit einem Glas Wein während die Kinder schon schlafen ist nicht so gut. Fazit: Nur für Übernachten und Frühstücken geeignet.
We have spent two wonderful weaks in this nice house. It is a big house, very pleasant furnished in an absolutely quiet surrounding with a terrific view. The owners are extremly kind and helpful. There is not a direct access to the terrace, but it is just getting out of the door and walking round the house. We used this terrace with the beautiful view espacially to see the sunset. In the morning we had breakfast opposite the house in the big terrain belonging to the property.
