Description

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.

Further details

There is a very good, large open-air community swimming pool in easy walking distance.

Further details indoors

There are some guide books, brochures about places to visit, past visitors' recommendations, maps, a few games and a range of books for all ages to read. A cleaning service is available, and a local cook will prepare a 5 course meal including wine for 30 euros per person

Further details outdoors

From the very large and beautifully laid out garden there is a superb view up into the mountains. The garden has lawns, patios, shaded and covered areas (including pergolas) so that visitors can always find a private spot to sit, sunbathe or eat. There are several outdoor tables, chairs and sun-loungers. As well as shrubs and flowering plants there are herbs for cooking. There are two mountain bikes in the garden shed which visitors are welcome to use.

Location description from owner

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.

Cascia

The rural community of Cascia lies in the foothills of the beautiful Pratomagno mountains, on which the light is constantly changing - tree clad high up, descending into olive groves and vineyards, punctuated by old buildings and lines of cypress trees. The area is renowned for the freshness of the air, and the local olive oil is held to be amongst the finest in the world. People interested in walking, flora, fauna or art and architecture will find the location ideal. Cascia is famous for the Masaccio painting and superb Romanesque church. There are several other fascinating villages and towns nearby, as well as excellent shopping and numerous restaurants and bars. Good transport gives easy access to the wonders of Florence and beyond.

“Tranquil apartment in beautiful setting”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

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”

Reviewed 27 May 2011

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!
