La Villetta is ideal for people wanting a place in a beautiful country setting with lots to enjoy locally, and also easy access to the great cities of Florence, Siena and beyond.

The house and its extensive garden is in a small, quiet hamlet in a superb scenic setting looking up into the Pratomagno Mountains. It is several hundred years old and has been fully renovated, retaining traditional Tuscan features. There are shops, restaurants and other amenities within easy walking distance.

La Villetta consists of two completely self-contained apartments each sleeping 4 comfortably with room for a fifth person, so either apartment is ideal for couples or small family groups. The Upper Apartment (like the lower one) has a living/dining room with kitchen area, which is also usable as a bedroom as it has a double sofa-bed. It also has a large double bedroom with a double bed and a folding single bed. The bathroom has a shower, bidet, hand basin, toilet and all other usual features.

Our private website (search for La Villetta Pritchard) gives comprehensive details of La Villetta and its surroundings, and also has information about an adjacent property 'La Capanna' which has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 6. This can also be seen as property 37984 on this website.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany contains some of Europe's most beautiful landscapes, along with the great cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca. This is an area of great contrasts; from the mountains on the East side to the coastal plains and beaches on the West; from the tranquility of its green countryside to the great renaissance art and the contemporary sophistication of its cities. Tuscany is also well known for its wonderful wines, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and many others, and for its superb olive oil.

The climate ranges from hot (but seldom oppressively) in summer, to cool (but seldom bitterly cold) in winter. This climate, along with the vast array of things to do and see, makes Tuscany an ideal holiday destination at any time of year.

Reggello

The small rural communities of Cascia and nearby Reggello lie in the foothills of the beautiful Pratomagno mountains, on which the light is constantly changing. They are tree clad high up, descending into olive groves and small vineyards, punctuated by old buildings and lines of cypress trees. The area is renowned in this part of Italy for the freshness of the air, and the local olive oil is generally held to be amongst the finest in the world. People interested in walking, flora, fauna or bird watching will find the location extremely rewarding.

Cascia is a typical Tuscan village, famous for the Masaccio painting in the superb Romanesque church. There are several other fascinating small villages and towns nearby, many offering excellent walks, beautiful old churches and other ancient buildings and places of interest. Vallombrosa, a particularly famous beauty spot up in the mountains, is only a few kilometres away.

In Cascia and Reggello there is a LARGE SWIMMING POOL, equestrian centre, cinema and several shops for all basic necessities, as well as a market on Saturdays. For people interested in finding a real bargain in the world of "haute couture" the nearby shopping centre called The Mall is home to the factory outlets of Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, and other top designer labels. Not far away there is a similar Prada outlet.

Westwards lies the river Arno and the Chianti hills, producing the splendid wines of the same name. Around Cascia and Reggello there are far fewer tourists than in the Chianti heartland. Slightly further afield, the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, which are very easy to reach, offer a great variety of things to do and see. Medieval and Renaissance art and architecture is everywhere, there are theatres (some in the open-air), Roman and Etruscan ruins, shops and markets of every kind, as well as swimming baths, sports events and much more.

"Tranquil apartment in beautiful setting"

We very much enjoyed our stay at the upper apartment in La Villetta, it is very well equipped with a lovely garden, nice for relaxing and barbeques. The location is excellent, a pleasant stroll away from a nice quiet town with excellent restaurants and cafe's. It is accessible by car within easy driving distance of Florence, Siena, Arrezzo and the Chianti region.

"Nice location for a family holiday"

The upper apartment of the La Villeta was a cosy place to stay at after busy days out. The place was well equipped and the garden with the beautiful views provided unforgettable moments of relax. The only issue we had was the parking-be prepared to park a few meters away from the villa. Would be happy to return to the place again!
