Radda in Chianti villa
Nice villa, plenty of space , pool and outside area a little tired. No WiFi or satellite as promised.
Very hot in villa , fans not provided , politely suggest that they should be for future guests .
Slightly uncomfortable with caretaker having to use our outside area for access multiple times a day
Dear guest, i have received your severe review that appears little appropriate why the site explains clearly that in the house not is available wi-fi and airconditioning. The house is provided of fans available on request free. Unfortunately not them you have required. You thank instead for the information on behavior of the guardian that will be immediately fired.
A great country villa!
We loved our stay at the villa in the beautiful countryside in Chianti hills. The house has so much history and a personal feeling in a beautiful surrounding. We found all the necessary equipment in the house and the BBQ was nice. The kids enjoyed the pool and while the adults could relax in the garden without any worry. Mauro, the owner, was very responsive and accommodating to all our questions and concerns and made us feel welcome.
We would love to go back and highly recommend Mauro and his villa!
Ospiti molto precisi, puntuali e rispettosi della casa e dei luoghi! Da riavere ancora come ospiti e da consigliare!!!
This has been a wonderful property to stay at for our visit with my whole family. Italy is having a heat wave thus with the warm temperatures the pool was a lifesaver. Radda and Castellini in Chianti are both charming towns. This home was a perfect base for our ten days in beautiful Tuscany,
Dear Marta is a pleasure having in the our house and thank you for how of him you have had care. We hope come soon in italy. Cordial greetings, Mauro
Beautiful home in the perfect setting and location in Chianti region
We stayed for a week here in September 2018. The property is situated in a quiet, peaceful area that is so conveniently located to many of the small villages and wineries in the Chianti region. The area is even more beautiful than I had hoped for and imagined. it is a very close drive to Castellina, Radda and Volpaia and we also did day trips to San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Florence and Siena. We had amazing warm weather in September and enjoyed sitting by the pool in the afternoon. We were only 2 couples but the mansion definitely could hold more very comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped. We usually did breakfast at the house and we even arranged for an Italian cooking class right at the property and it was wonderful. Mauro, the owner, is very kind and so attentive in responding to any questions that you have. Dino, the gardener, lives in the bottom quarters - he is a very nice man but we hardly saw him. It was our first time in the Chianti region and I'm sure we will be back and when we return we hope to stay at this beautiful property! Thank you Mauro.
Cara Dorothy, siete stati degli ospiti eccellenti! Speriamo di avervi ancora nella nostra casa, prossimamente! Grazie di aver apprezzato la casa per la sua semplicità ma anche confortevolezza e di averla caldamente consigliata anche per la sua posizione strategica in rapporto ai vari luoghi di immensa bellezza da visitare. Con stima e simpatia, Mauro
BEAUTY BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS !
I rented this lovely residence for the month of August, 2017 and along with many family members and friends, enjoyed it greatly for the whole time. Their visits were planned at varying times so that we never exceeded the capacity or felt ourselves crowded in any way. We brought both sun tan lotion and insect repellent and made good use of them. At times, the mosquitoes were not to be seen, other times, the spray was a good investment and kept them from spoiling our fun.
Significant high points:
Ali - while titled as groundskeeper, he is so much more. Very eager to please and help you enjoy your stay to the fullest yet never intrusive. While he speaks no English, he will help you in learning Italian if you will let him ! (sign language plus persistence) We found our knowledge of Spanish helpful (many similar words) but not a cure-all. Ali was hugely responsible for our wonderful vacation here.
Castellina in Chianti - Only a few minutes away by car, this charming, scenic town is full of friendly merchants - bakeries, fruit and veggie merchants, gelato shops (A MUST ! ) . Recommend you shop frequently for farm-fresh edibles; don't overbuy. For U.S. supermarket types, try COOP (also in Radda). Learn and obey the local parking regulations, wherever you go in Tuscany.
Radda in Chianti - Only a few minutes farther than Castellina with similar shopping facilities and great views. Find 2 places to sit and rest when you tire: one overlooking verdant valleys, another in a busy pedestrian street just to peoplewatch.
Firenze (Florence) - about an hour's drive away. High level of arts & culture, museums, etc. Not to be missed if you're new to the area. Plenty of info available.
Wine - Why did you come to Chianti country if not for this ? All 3 towns above have info on visits to wineries, tasting locations, etc. Chianti Classico is terrific but even some of the local, less expensive wines are great. 2 Supertuscan wines ($$$$), at towns located not too far away: 1. Montalcino (Brunello de M.); 2. Montepulciano (Vino nobile de M. )
Mansion Owner: Mauro Pescarini, Retired Italian Army General Very friendly gentleman whose English is like my Italian, not too great ! E-mail contact is best, translate language by smartphone/computer.
NOTE:July/August-hot months. USE POOL ! I bought 3 fans and left them for future guests use. Usually not needed at night due to cool breezes.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL PLACE...ENJOY IT ! ! !
