Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany does not need any presentation! The cities with its history and art attractions, the medieval villages, the special food and wine, the welcoming people make it a region with a matchless offer.
Villa PetrAlexa is situated in the heart of this region. Just a taste of the many places you can visit:
* San Gimignano, today UNESCO patrimony, famous for its many towers.
* Siena, may be the best-preserved medieval city in Italy.
* Florence….How is a summary possible?
* Monteriggioni, one of the few completely walled towns that can be proud of its original medieval walls still standing.

Famous for the wine, its production in Tuscany still follows the ancient guidelines to produce some of the best wines in the world: Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Sassicaia and the sweet Vin Santo with 'Cantucci' biscuits! Basically, the harvest (called “vendemmia”, in Italian) in the whole Tuscany starts on the end of August and beginning of September, a very fascinating period to visit the Chianti hills.

Think about choosing a week in relation to the many events of this region, for example:
Yearly events:
- "Cantine aperte", last weekend of May: over 800 wine cellars open to be visited for free wine tasting.
- "Palio" of Siena, 2 July and 16 August: the bareback horse races.
- "Calici di stelle": 10 August: possibility to delight in "the raining of San Lorenzo's tears" quality wine and typical quality products in the historical centre and piazzas, among courtyards of unexpected beauty and castles.
- "Welcome harvest", September: discover the production cycle of wine through walks through the vineyards, visits to the companies, and tastings.
- "St. Martins day", 2nd week of November: the Wineries will be open to the public for the tasting of the "Novello Wine" (the new wine of last season)
- Chianti bycicling and mountain biking:
June: "Chianti Classic" non competitive cycling road race
October: "L'Eroica", Vintage Race, participants from all over the world
- "Stelle mercanti", Stars and Merchants. A market held at night with local artisans, hand crafts and music. From 6 PM to 11 PM. Every third Thursday of the months of June, July and August at Greve in Chianti.
... and many other local events...

“Villa PetrAlexa - excellent leisure facility”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2015

This years stay was even better than our stay last year. Despite the fact we arrived late at night due to repeated traffic jams on the motorway because of terrible weather conditions, everything was perfectly prepared. The house was heated up and food and beverage was available (from the region of course). Everything was clean and tidy. We had great fun during hiking and cycling and enjoyed ourselves in one of the best places in Tuscany. We again had a great time and our next stay is already booked.

“Toscany at its best at Radda in Chianti property Villa PetrAlexa”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2014

The property itself is wonderfully placed between woods and a vinery in the picturesque Chianti area near Radda. The hospitality we have experienced was outstanding in the mean that you feel this is a crucial part of the owners intentions to feel you welcome. We travelled with kids (age 14 and 9) and enjoyed wonderful landscape, cycling and food. This time we had to leave after a view days, but of course we will come again and experience this unique flair of one of the most beautiful places we have experienced so far. Hannes Behensky and family

“Nice location, shame about everything else!”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

3km from Lecchi and 6km from Radda down a dirt track in a pretty location. The house was dark and at night, the far too few lights in the sitting room made it nearly impossible to read or cook. The pool was adequate, but built on a slope so we could not sit anywhere near it. The main area for food was in the worst part of the garden. It was covered in weeds and cracked tiles. The seating area with a view, had no umbrella and a tiny table. The grass was very long. The electricity turned off frequently, if the lights, cooker and washing machine or dishwasher were on. The place was full of tiny spiders and cobwebs and the kitchen area and oven, greasy. The master bedroom had black mould on three sides behind our bed and we were told that was just because it was an old house. Shame, because with some money and a lot of thought, it could be lovely.

- we have improved the living and kitchen areas with more lights and more powerful - the outside eating area has a large umbrella which covers completely the table for eating al fresco; there is a second covered area, the gazebo, which we leave to the decision of our guests how to enjoy: with sun beds, a small table for a drink.. - if you use together all supplies I think also in an apartment in the city electricity goes down; just some attention and some regards to this solves the problem! - yes, it can happen to have some spiders or other small animals in the house; not because of lack of cleanness, the villa is in the middle of the countryside. Who does not like or is afraid of small animals should book a hotel in Florence centre! - we discovered a little infiltration during last summer in the master bedroom: that is the reason of the black spots on the wall; the problem has been solved. We give our guests 2 hours time to check for cleanness and 24 hours to check for the function of all supplies. Through the experience of our guests we always try to improve our villas: some comments are helpful, others are really unfounded. Yes, it can happen that problems arise in the house; having many people living in it, it is normal that something can break or stop working; we always try to solve problems promptly; otherwise we are at disposal to refund our guests. The pictures we publish reflect exactly the villa and what we offer; deceiving our potential clients does not pay and just creates problems; so if you like what you see on the advertising this is what you will find.

“cosy villa, astonishing landscape, good location”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2012

Very comfortable and cosy villa, with all the appliances (2 refrigerators, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine etc) and dishes you need. Nice rooms and bathrooms. Very beautiful yard with a breath-taking view. Unfortunatelly one of the 2 bedrooms upstairs has no walls, it is isolated only by some courtains, so it has no privacy at all. Tip: you can buy your groceries at the local supermarkets (Coop), but check for their opening hours first (they are not opened all day long). There are also many restaurants that close in the afternoon. Very good location within acceptable distance from Siena, Arrezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, Florence.

“A wonderful relaxing retreat”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2012

Villa PetraAlexa was all it was described to be and more. The arrangements were easy to make and the property owners responsive to any needs that arose. The first night the chef Mariarosa cooked us a remarkable Tuscan feast and brought us some really wonderful and inexpensive local Chianti Classico to go with it. The location is great near the beautiful Radda in Chianti and access to other Tuscan gems is easy, but beware of twisty Tuscan roads! We had a great, but too short stay in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

That’s true! Our Chef is specialized in preparing typical Tuscan meals. This is an opportunity many clients choose for the first night at their arrival: to find somebody cooking for you at home after a long trip is a special present you can make yourself, at less price than at a restaurant! And our Chef also loves sharing her delicious recipes through cooking lessons made at the villa! We hope to have you back at our villa … every year we try to make some little improvements to it!
