About the property

Old stone house of 180 square meters on top of a scenic hill

Entering the courtyard, House Barbaresi identified with the two adjacent buildings on the right, that stand out right away for some distinctive elements: the Renaissance portal in sandstone topped by a coat of arms, the oven peeping under a medieval arch, the elegant external staircase leading to the first floor. The four inputs (counting the one on the back, looking onto an olive grove) lead to indoor environments that are developed on two levels, for a total area of ​​180 square meters. The floors are hand-made terracotta, ceilings with beams and joists chestnut wood view. The local more impressive is the large (50 square meters) living room, divided in half by a brick arch to all sixth of 4 meters in diameter, dominated by a monumental fireplace and equipped with wooden loft. Another large fireplace dominates the first floor in the dining room, adjacent to the large kitchen of the Chianti tradition, with hob, oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. The bedrooms are three, all on the ground floor: one with a double bed, one with two single beds and a third with a single bed and a half. Including consideration of two beds in the loft of stay, places to sleep are seven / eight. Two bathrooms: one small, with a shower, another very spacious with separate bath and shower; in both there are toilet, sink and bidet. The structure has, in a special room, which has a garden, even a washing machine. Behind the house there is a space where you can relax in the green, in front of the olive trees, on garden deck comfortable, or even have lunch or dinner around a table. There is a barbecue. In the living room it is at guests' disposal a rich library of books on Chianti-Tuscany, but there is also a section devoted to production cars and racing. In the libraries of the bedrooms, however, there are numerous novels (in Italian). Moreover, unlike what often happens in structures of this type, those staying at the Casanova Apple will not find a bare and essential home-dorm, emptied by all the elements that could be "ruined" by tourists, but exactly what c 'it is when the owners live. The intent is to offer warm hospitality and spontaneous, allowing you to better enjoy the Chianti area even when you are at home. Incidentally, in this regard, guests will find, on the table of the dining room, the latest editions of some of the main Italian wine guides - which can consult to see what and where are the best companies in the area - and a selection of restaurants and eateries of the area between Florence and Siena personally by the owners.

La vacanza da sogno in Chianti

  • 5 of 5

Scegliere una casa vacanza in Chianti non è stato affatto semplice in quanto l'offerta in questo territorio è incrementata negli ultimi anni. E non sempre si tratta di un'offerta di qualità, purtroppo! Ma il casolare dei Barbaresi è stato una vera scoperta per la mia numerosa famiglia: i locali e le attrezzature offerte corrispondono esattamente alla descrizione, le stanze sono spaziose e pulite, gli arredi conservano il sapore della tradizione e la campagna circostante è ricca di sentieri e piantagioni, tutti da scoprire. Inoltre la disponibilità di testi e guide specializzate, unitamente ai consigli e suggerimenti dispensati dai gentilissimi proprietari, ha fatto la differenza!

Peccato che la settimana sia scivolata via in fretta... ma il sorriso stampato sulle guance dei miei bambini è per me indimenticabile. Ideale anche per coppie di amici e comitive desiderose di esplorare i sapori e i colori del Chianti!

Bellezza, silenzio e comodità in Chianti

  • 5 of 5

La località si chiama "Casanova del Mela" e la costruzione è in pietra grigia, perfettamente inserita nel paesaggio. Gli interni sono curatissimi, con travi a vista; gli ambienti, affascinanti e pulitissimi , sono dotati di tutti i comfort e attrezzati per ogni esigenza. Il nostro soggiorno di coppia con amici internazionali è stato rilassante e stimolante nello stesso tempo; in auto abbiamo raggiunto facilmente sia posti d'interesse storico, che percorsi enologici\culinari. Ottimo rapporto qualità\prezzo, gentili e disponibili i proprietari : CONSIGLIATISSIMO
