Overview

Radicondoli Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Private cook and concierge near Siena ideal for total relax

Il Pietraio holiday rental is one of those hidden jems in Tuscany one imagines all his life! Immersed deeply in the wild woods of the Carline Natural Reserve, a hidden pearl in the province of Siena amidst deer, porcupines and wild boars.

Chosen by the owners out of deep love for the area and restored with passion, the country house has a simple yet chic country feel that makes you feel at ease the minute you arrive.

The onwers have been restoring the property for the past 5 years and are turning it into a very fine yet rustic boutique retreat with the charm and intimacy of a private home.

The cosy inner yard offers stunning views of the Natural Reserve and hosts access to the large panoramic lounge/dining room obtained from the old hay stacks, the outdoors cooking facilities and 3 independent en-suite double bedrooms.

Just off the courtyard sits the staircase leading to the first floor, hosting a large open living area with fireplace, a fully fitted professional kitchen and three double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Il Pietraio is the ideal location for Siena wedding receptions, intimate blessings and reunions. A true Tuscan holiday villa rental with panoramic swimming pool.

The country house is perfect for large parties of 14 who want to be together without giving up on privacy and intimacy. All rooms have a full private bathroom and air conditioning.

The large gardens and the eco-friendly panoramic swimming pool ensure all guests have plenty of space to enjoy their privacy. The pool is being newly fitted with a saline eco pool, 15 x 5 metres, 1.40 mt deep - ideal for swimming and relaxing, also ideal for young children thanks to the lower borders.

Pietraio is the ideal venue for large groups who enjoy privacy and want to be pampered thoroughly. The owners offer, in fact, a marvelous service of personal chef - to prepare gorgeous meals and tasty snacks by the pool. They also take care of your shopping, daily activity planning, and on request, also driving you around the most wonderful places the area has to offer.

In other words, you just need to get here - Antonella and Roldano will take care of everything else. They live in the small independent studio at the back of the house. Are absolutely unobtrusive, yet at hand to offer many services.

Amenities: Food shopping, restaurants, bars, chemist, bank, post office can be found in either Belforte or Radicondoli which are 7 and 12 kms away.

Una vera casa di campagna

  • 5 of 5

Un caloroso grazie ad Antonella e Roldano per una delle vacanze più rilassanti mai fatte! Abbiamo passato una settimana con amici in questa splendida casa di campagna, dove gli unici rumori che si sentivano erano le nostre risate, gli uccellini ed il venticello tra gli alberi. Durante la settimana abbiamo sfruttato al massimo la competenza di Roldano ed Antonella nel programmare meravigliose, bucoliche gite campagnole in luoghi poco conosciuti. Una sera ci siamo fatti preparare una cena a 5 stelle con tanto di pane fatto in casa nel forno a legno. Siamo curiosi di tornare per vedere la nuova piscina e perché no fare un bagno notturno nella vasca idromassaggio. Grazie ancora e tanti auguri!

Amazing hideaway, intimacy and great comfort

  • 5 of 5

We rented this fabulous house in June for a reunion with 10 friends from University. We do this every year in a different country and this one was special! Although we initially had some doubts due the distance of the house from a village, we liked the fact that it had 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, what a treat! When we were offered the possibility to have a live in cook and concierge to provide meals, do the shopping and organize days out for us we had no second thought and booked it. We had the most amazing, relaxing week. We all had a real holiday, we hardly ever drove as we were chauffeured around on day trips and did not need to worry about cooking or cleaning up. It was all done for us. We could all drink at night and it was a great bonus! Antonella and Roldano are amazing people, nothing is too much trouble for them. They often spoiled us with scrumptious snacks by the pool, we even had a Pizza party using the wood oven. Were cannot recommend this house enough. Grazie Roldano e Antonella!!

Che spettacolo…..

  • 5 of 5

Una casa d'altri tempi, immersa nel verde, con dettagli particolari e bellissimi! Roldano e Antonella ci hanno riservato un'accoglienza meravigliosa, ci hanno fornito tante belle informazioni per poter visitare luoghi fantastici come Casole d'Elsa, Monteriggioni, Colle, Radicondoli e potrei continuare così all'infinito.

E' stata una vacanza bella, emozionante, rilassante grazie al Podere e ai suoi due meravigliosi proprietari!

Torneremo prestissimo!

Beautiful rustic villa set in amazing surroundings

  • 4 of 5

I arranged for a group of 10 friends to stay here in September 2011.

The villa is nestled in amazing countryside (Carline Natural Reserve) and the ideal location for getting away from it all. Our satnav got us there pretty easily (worth looking on Google maps and manually picking the spot on your satnav) from Pisa airport - and as there isn't really anything in walking distance, you definitely need a car!

The villa is a traditional Italian farmhouse and has been refurbished to a really good standard. The rooms are beautifully finished - again traditional and sympathetic to the surroundings. Some of the basic bits and pieces needed a little updating, e.g., the kettle, microwave and a few more cooking utensils, but we managed perfectly well and the rest of the facilities were very good. The pool and pool area are lovely and look out onto an absolutely amazing view of the Carline Natural Reserve. I'd recommend taking some horse fly repellant for the day, but we didn't really need any in the evening. Carline Natural Reserve is completely unspoilt - and don't be surprised if you spot the odd deer or wild boar whilst exploring your surroundings!

We made our own pizza's in the huge pizza oven (a first for us!) which were delicious. The owners of the villa also arranged for a local restaurant to come and cook for us one evening - the food was plentiful and delicious - an absolute must if you're planning on staying at Il Pietraio. Their restaurant is also the nearest one to the villa and well worth a visit too - we spent our last evening there and the food was superb. It's a really friendly restaurant and they really can't do enough for you.

The owners are extremely helpful and arranged to do some grocery shopping for us so we didn't have to rush around when we arrived (most of the local shops close at lunchtime and our flight arrived just before lunch so this was really convenient). They also gave us some really useful advice and ideas on places to visit and where to shop for our groceries/other essentials for the week.

The centre of Radicondoli is about 20mins drive from the villa and there were some lovely restaurants there too - again, the food was delicious and the restaurant staff were really friendly.

I have to say this was one of the most relaxing holidays we've had.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the tips - we'll definitely replenish the kitchen utensils and other details. Hope to have you back. Kind regards Roldano & Antonella

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

I booked Il Pietraio for a group of 10 friends and we all loved it!

We had great fun trying out the outdoor pizza oven and the massive bbq.

There is plenty of space, and plenty of bathrooms, so we didn't get in each others' ways but there are lots of places to be sociable in too.

The owners were very helpful too.

We'd go back!

A holiday at Il Pietraio is a true retreat to feed your senses with the beauty of its unspoilt nature, its porcupines, deer, wild boars, hares and a lot more. Only 1 km from the house, deep in the woods, you will find Porcignano, an incredible restaurant where you can eat some of the most ancient and traditional Tuscan dishes, home made jellies and preserves of the rarest berries picked patiently by the solitary lady who runs it with her young chef to be son. Il Pietraio is 12 kilometres from the beautifully preserved Medieval hamlet of Radicondoli, a small village in the Colline Metallifere surrounded by untouched rolling hills which will take you back to Medieval times.

The area abounds in marked walking routes, beautiful rivers, genuine restaurants, organic farmhouses, scrumptious food and breathtaking views.

GPS reading: 43.1992°N, 11.0113°E.

Other Activities: We can organise your wedding reception - Pietraio is the ideal place.
