Overview

Radicondoli Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Le Tanelle is a very special place situated on a high private promontory in beautiful countryside on the edge of the Maremma.

When you first arrive, as you are standing next to the carefully restored large stone farmhouse, the views of San Gimignano, Volterra and the Pisan Alps can take your breath away. Sunlight dances on the infinity pool as the water slips over the edge and you view the patchwork fields, vineyards, hilltop towns, and the wild wooded chestnut and oak forests.

You enter through wrought iron gates into a covered courtyard with a huge brick archway with a private bedroom off of it. The large kitchen, fully equipped, was once a stall for cattle and has the original stone flooring and troughs. Sienese marble countertops and a central table made of old chestnut, complement the rustic character.

The large dining/living area has comfortable seating around a fireplace. Through arched glass doors you step down to the terrace with seating overlooking the pool and the spectacular views.

Next to the terrace is a shady wisteria pergola with a marble topped table for dining “al fresco”, surrounded by flowers and rosemary. Nearby is a large stone BBQ fireplace grille.

Moving on from the sitting area you enter a space originally for wine caskets and grain. Part of this is now a laundry room and a bathroom with shower.

The main entrance with the old bread oven has a majestic stone stairway leading to a large upstairs living room with the original enormous hooded Tuscan kitchen fireplace surrounded by a relaxed seating area. There are two spacious double bedrooms, a bath with marble shower and a large bathroom with an old claw footed bathtub and a separate marble shower. The fourth bedroom has a double, two single beds, and a small bedroom off it with a single bed.

The charming hill towns of Radicondoli and Castelnuovo are 15 to 20 minutes by car. In about an hour’s drive through fascinating countryside you can reach San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Massa Marittma and the sandy coast. Florence is about 1½ hours.

Le Tanelle is a magical private space set in pristine countryside. The Italians always describe Tanelle as “tranquillo”. After a hot day in Florence or Siena it is paradise to return here to this oasis where there is always a light breeze.

When you are at Le Tanelle you have total privacy, but not completely isolated as there are other houses less than a half a mile away.

Surrounded by nature, with the woods behind and the fields below there are wildflowers, birds, deer, fox, wild boar and a 10th century castle just a few miles away. Perfect for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding not far away.

Important! This property is rented from Friday to Friday.

Tuscan family reunion

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive from Florence airport we finally settled into the peace and quiet at Le Tanelle. This was an excellent opportunity to spend time with both family and friends for 2 weeks. When not relaxing by the pool with a beer or wine we travelled the surrounding countryside, visiting nearby towns and dining in local restaurants and wineries. We also did a full day tour to Cinque Terra and Pisa (with a separate company) and on other days visited Florence, Lucca, Sienna, Volterra and San Gimignano. Highlights also included a winery tour of Chianti and a cooking school conducted at Le Tanelle. The villa, while rustic, had all necessary comforts except Wi-fi. A problem we had when the pool drained half empty overnight was immediately addressed and we were soon able to swim again. The scenery was spectacular and many great photos were taken. We would highly recommend this villa for its peace, serenity and great views as well as local wildlife

Stunning vistas, well-equipped, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stunning vistas of the hills and hilltop villages, remote from other properties, lots of forest to explore, within easy driving distance of towns and Siena, Florence, Volterra, and San Gimignano. A wonderful outdoor space with well-maintained infinity pool, herb garden, and landscape. A spacious interior space with two separate living rooms, a large, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Everything works! And interesting wildlife: we saw deer, badgers, hares, fireflies, and heard a wild boar and lots of foxes. Suitable for all ages and interests. We had a superb time.

Tuscan Charm at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

My week at Le Tanelle was memorable. Tanelle is a classic Tuscan farmhouse, restored to all its rustic charm with a lot of modern amenities. From the terrace and swimming pool you’re greeted every morning with a stunning view across the Tuscan countryside. On a clear day you can see as far Volterra and San Gimignano. We had al fresco lunches under the pergola, and dinners at wonderful restaurants in the medieval hill towns that dot the landscape – all within a 20-minute drive. I enjoyed the easy access to Siena and dozens of historic hill towns but also appreciated the quiet of Le Tanelle’s hillop aerie after a long day of sight-seeing.

Tuscan Extravaganza

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled most of Italy over the past decade, Le Tanelle sits on top as the most intimate and relaxed villa yet visited. Few places offer the sense of authenticity and seclusion that this property delivers. Beauty abounds both inside and out. The setting is spectacular.

Tuscan Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Le Tanelle is a Tuscan masterpiece ~ a 4-bedroom villa nestled on the mountainside with endless views. A group of friends and I rented this property in July and we just loved the spaces, the integrity of the structure, the fabulous pool, the hillside of lavender and rosemary and the flexibility of the large spaces gave each of us room for privacy when desired. The location is private and approximately 20 to 30 minutes to town where there are restaurants, a food co-op, a fabulous bakery and an open-air market that occurs weekly where you can buy just about anything. The distance to Siena and Florance are manageable drives and made for great day trips. Thank you Peter for a great experience.
