Siena Area Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Apartment with all comfort; Garden; ZH, pool, whirlpool, sauna; WLAN; Satellite TV

The centuries-old stone farmhouse look in absolute solitude far beyond the scenic hills of Tuscany beyond. The house is surrounded by olive trees, cypresses, wine and forest and it invites the 'to let your soul. Particularly attractive is the atmospheric views of the the opposite hill dominant medieval castle village 'Vertine'.

The house has a total of only 2 units: the only occupied by the owner and the upstairs to the apartment-developed ground floor where previously stood the stables and storage rooms. Most often you will but the house, garden and pool have on their own, because the owners are very rarely present outside their own holidays. The ground floor apartment offers absolute peace and was renovated with all comfort. It has 3 rooms - all with terracotta floor: Fully equipped kitchen with dining area in the atrium with large glazed arched windows; the bedroom with a romantic double bed and fitted wardrobe; the small studio with a desk, (sleeping) couch, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and a bathroom with shower, toilet and outside windows.

In front of the apartment and only be used by the guests of the apartments with direct access are the two terraces (one with a romantic pergola and barbecue) and the upstream meadow area with 2 wonderful olive trees. Due to the central heating you feel even in the cooler seasons in the apartment very comfortable. Pets are welcome - but we must point out that our surrounding area is very rich in wildlife. The land around the house but is secured by a fence.

On the upper terrace is a large swimming pool with outdoor shower and a fantastic view over the Tuscan countryside. There is also another large relaxation area with loungers and parasols. In particular, in the transitional period invites the spatially separated from Pool A with a dream view to a relaxing massage. A sauna with shower and toilet complements on request, the wellness program.

All terraces and seating is surrounded by flowering rose beds and filled with geraniums terracotta vessels. All in all, gives you this dream place the feeling that you have not only a home but a whole house rented with its atmospheric environment. However, the secluded location with stunning views also means that you need your car in any case, for shopping and restaurant visits and that the last part of the climb is steep and somewhat bumpy.

As the hotel ideally located in the heartland of the 'Chianti Classico', of course, you have all options for various excursions in the area. Gaiole and Radda in particular are wonderful little country town for shopping, strolling and eating out. Particularly attractive are the many small country seats - so-called 'Borgi' - the Castles and the many and sometimes world-famous wineries. On trails or side streets you will find old Romanesque churches and Etruscan excavations. Very atmospheric is not far away 'sculture parco del chianti' where you can experience on a trail in the forest sculptures by various artists. Special highlights are of course the great art cities of Tuscany such as Siena, Florence, Pisa and San Gimignano. In the apartment you will find various art and landscape guides and recommendations for lesser-known destinations.

'La Casuccia' is certainly a very special place for people who want to experience the landscape and culture of Tuscany with all your senses on the one hand and want to enjoy the peace and relaxation of this place and on the other hand will also undertake a variety of their own activities. Due to the fantastic location and convenient facilities is 'La Casuccia' also an ideal place for a longer stay.

Tolles Anwesen - Erholung garantiert

  • 5 of 5

Kurz und gut: Ein stilvoll restauriertes, sehr komfortables Anwesen in traumhafter Lage. Abends zirpen die Grillen und die Wildschweine grunzen - Ruhe und Natur pur!

Dazu wurden wir auf das Freundlichste empfangen und mit Tipps und Tricks für das Erkunden der schönen Gegend versehen (danke hierfür nochmals, Petrus!)

Wir haben uns in der Zeit sehr wohl gefühlt und werden gerne nochmals wiederkommen!

Liebe Grüße,

Petra & Jari

Sehr geschmackvolle Wohnung in idyllischer Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage der Wohnung ist am Hang mit einem traumhaften Blick ins Tal und ins benachbarte Bergdorf Vertine.

Naturliebhaber finden hier eine ideale Unterkunft. Im Herbst hört man das Grunzen der Wildschweine aus den Wäldern. Die Wohnung

ist sehr gut ausgestattet und verfügt über zwei Terrassen, die man je nach Jahreszeit und Sonnenstand entsprechend nutzen kann.

Der Sonnenuntergang im Whirlpool mit einem Glas Chianti ist unvergesslich.

Wie sind sehr herzlich empfangen worden und hatten eine gute Betreuung was die Gegend und das "Drum herum" betrifft.

Vielen Dank an Peter Wacker für die schöne Zeit.

Gemütliche Wohnung, super Lage

  • 5 of 5

Süße Wohnung, sehr gut ausgestattet und in einer traumhaften Lage.

Wunderbarer Ausblick ins Tal und zu dem gegenüber liegenden Burgdorf Vertine. Die Anfahrt ist etwas abenteuerlich über einen schmalen Schotterweg.

Die Wohnung ist ideal für ein Paar, das Ruhe und Natur liebt. Nur die Vögel machen Lärm.

Wir haben die 2 Wochen sehr genossen und uns wunderbar erholt. Unvergesslich die Abende im Whirlpool mit Ausblick, Prosecco und Sternenhimmel.

Vielen Dank an Peter und Barbara für den herzlichen Empfang und die gute Betreuung.

The two terraces and the garden area belong exclusively to the ground floor apartment and are completely separated from the terraces and the pool on the top floor (= slope). By the central heating, the apartment is also suitable in the cooler season and for a longer stay. In domestic animals is to be noted that the surrounding area is very rich in wildlife. Flat and exterior are largely single storey - but there are thresholds and small differences in level with 2 steps between the rooms and the outdoor terraces.
