Surrounding Region

  • On 120 acres of olive groves, vineyards and woodlands, and a handful of minutes from the medieval villages of Castellina and Radda in Chianti, an ancient farmhouse, hay barn and sheep shed were built of the stones its rocky terrain had to offer and perched on rising natural terraces. The present owners moved the property into the present century and added the grace notes to make their own home and two guest houses truly lovely places from which to explore the famed Chianti region.

    Accommodation

    Sitting higher than the other buildings and enjoying a nearly uninterrupted view of the wooded Chianti hillside, Sasso has several points of entry. From the long grassy terrace is a door into a cosy living room with sofas in front of a stone fireplace. The adjacent eat-in kitchen, instead, has a door to a side garden with a pergola furnished for meals al fresco. Upstairs there are a twin/double bedroom and a double bedroom with outdoor access, a shower room and a bathroom.

    Local area

    Nearby there are Castellina in Chainti, so prized by the Medici that they commission a fortress to protect it, and Radda in Chianti, the unofficial capital of the region, and Castello di Brolio, where the standards for the wine were set. All have excellent restaurants and enotecas, but with the possibility of having a cook at your home and a glassful on your terrace you may not see the need to wander.

    Sasso was very nice indeed. The house was excellent, the views excellent and the pool was good. In fact everything was good but for the following. Pool furniture and outdoor furniture need upgrading. The poolside loungers (and there were two similar loungers at the Sasso house) made with clay bricks are unusable as they are too heavy to move (bricks do not make an attractive base). With two properties that can take 8 people the pool needs more shade umbrellas, and sufficient moveable, light loungers for every guest. Outdoor chairs at the house were uncomfortable, as they were heavy, difficult to move and inflexible.

    That's the most constructive criticism we can give. Overall however, we were very pleased (and we know Tuscany, this being our 9th visit to Tuscany). Signora Mimma was charming and most helpful as was her husband. We would recommend this property.

    -----------------------
    Thank you very much for this advice - we'll pass on your comments about pool furniture to Mimma, I'm going to visit in September. Very glad you enjoyed the property overall!
