The old country house is the ideal location for an unforgettable vacation, suitable for families and small groups: where you can rest and enjoy the fresh and spacious interiors, the shade of the loggia and the scent of the aromatic herbs in the wide garden surrounds That the house. Where you may work, read, write and relax in a peaceful atmosphere, visit the nearby artistic cities, take quiet walks in the woods or a gourmet tour through the many trattorias of the area or even go for a refreshing swim by the seaside or in dive in the crystal clear waters of the local rivers.
A house where every detail - from the external stone walls to the antique furniture, the old paintings, the wooden beams of the roof and the traditional terracotta tiles - Gives a unique and cozy atmosphere plenty of authenticity.
The main level of the house (the lower one being the private holiday home of the owners, a couple of architects working in Florence) is composed by a large sitting room with a huge traditional fireplace and a big sofa, a dining room provided with a big table suitable for eight to ten persons, two double bedrooms, each with Its Own private bathroom, a studio with two single beds, a separate kitchen with store-room, a loggia and, of course, a big garden dressed with the typical trees , plants, herbs and flowers of the region.
La Casina stands alone, Surrounded only by the olive fields and the woods of the property, but ... the village of Radicondoli, With its small shops, ITS commodities and its traditional trattorias, is only 5 min. Walking. The unique and breathless panoramic view That you can have from it's garden and its rooms covers a range of 360 ° from the dawn to the sunset till the far away lights of the small surrounding villages at night.
There is not a week that has gone by without my mind returning over and over to this stunning property and the wonderful memories we made while spending a blissful week last August at this Villa.
Breathtakingly beautiful grounds surround this impressive Villa perched high on a hilltop with magnificent views of the valley and charming village of Radicondoli. The owners, Francesca and Lorenzo, welcomed us upon our arrival and were great to provide us with lots of information about local happenings, wonderful dining options and fabulous day trips.
After a restful night's sleep, we began each day sitting on the porch drinking a cup of Italian coffee and planning our day's activities while listening to Vivaldi and soaking in the spectacular views.
The Villa is beautifully decorated and offers all the comforts of home. Day trips were spent exploring the regions of Chianti, Montalcino, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena and Livorno. Dinners at Agriteca and Le Pergola in the village were wonderful as was the Street Art Festival with live music set up on one of the cobble stone streets in the village one evening.
My family and I spent five glorious days at this authentic villa in Southern Tuscany! Our hosts, Francesca and Lorenzo, were on-site part of the time and provided us with all that we needed to make our stay comfortable. They suggested several of their favorite places to visit and dine. The charming town of Radicondoli was our home base, and we all agreed that we liked it best of all the places we visited!!! We would definitely recommend staying at this villa to anyone who wishes to experience the Tuscan culture first-hand. We would love to come back perhaps during the Fall. It was so beautiful in the Summer, but sitting by the fireplace in the spacious living room would be like a dream. Thank you, Francesca and Lorenzo!!!
It could not have been more perfect! Spacious, well equipped, beautifully kept grounds, friendly, helpful, full of useful information about where to get local products Francesca and Lorenzo. Thank you so much for your hospitality! The only drawback: our time there was much too short!
Merveilleuse Toscane dont nous garderons un souvenir impérissable. Nous avons apprécié le charme de la belle villa de Francesca et Lorenzo, de son intérieur typiquement toscan, spacieux, chaleureux et meublé avec goût ainsi que du superbe jardin entretenu avec passion par Lorenzo. Jardin paradisiaque pour les nombreux papillons (machaons, flambés etc..) qui n'ont de cesse de butiner les belles fleurs et pour la multitude d'oiseaux qui chantent tout au long du jour. Si vous êtes matinal, de la loggia vous pouvez admirer le couple de huppes faciès qui visitent le jardin, vous apercevrez peut-être le rusé renard qui traverse le chemin pour traquer le faisan qui niche aux alentours et même entendre le cri du chevreuil, hôte des bois tout proches. Nous avons été également conquis par RADICONDOLI joli village toscan perché sur la colline et très animé, par ses aimables habitants et par les traditionnelles fêtes villageoises. Mention spéciale pour le restaurant l'Agritica où nous avons apprécié la qualité de la bonne cuisine traditionnelle et l'accueil d'Herminio et de Bianca. Encore merci à Francesca et Lorenzo pour leur gentillesse, leurs judicieux conseils et leur discrétion. Si un jour nous revenons en Toscane, c'est sûr nous irons à la Podere "La Casina"
We arrived at sunset and were amazed by the beauty of the house, its gardens, and by the 360º view of the Tuscan countryside, and to top it off the owners welcomed us with a good bottle of wine and a home made tart: we felt at home! Francesca and Lorenzo are wonderful hosts and gave us plenty of suggestions of what to visit in that area, valuable insider's tips. Everything was in perfect order: a complete and functional kitchen, the rooms and the beds immaculately fresh and clean, high speed wifi in the whole house, and we could use the downstairs washer for our clothes whenever we wanted. All the bathrooms have been renovated with taste. The interior of the house is elegant and at the same time very cozy, with a huge fireplace in the middle of the living room (they even have a cable TV which we rarely watched). My most precious memories are of our family dining outside, under the pine trees, overlooking the Tuscan hills in the sunset... simply magical, and unforgettable. The kids loved it, we are definitely coming back.
We had an amazing stay at the villa. It was the perfect place to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday with two of our close friends. The house was cozy and picturesque, perched in the hills of a small Italian village. We were a group of 4 so each couple had their own double bed.
The kitchen was perfectly equipped and we enjoyed the most unforgettable dinners sitting at the large dining room table, when we were not exploring the small towns throughout Tuscany; it was a great home base for day trips. Although it rained a few days during our stay, it did not ruin the experience at the house - the setting was truly beautiful and I can only imagine how gorgeous it must be during the summer months. We loved walking around the beautiful village of radicondoli and ate at several local restaurants which were all wonderful.
Francesca and Lorenzo were amazing hosts and so helpful in planning our stay before we even arrived in Italy. They could be easily reached and very helpful with anything we needed, including great suggestions for day trips and restaurants. We can't wait to come back to the villa again in the future!!
