The private courtyard terrace and large south-oriented terrace with pool view , playground + gardens are both well equipped with outdoor furniture and have each a bbq. When renovating this lovely house , the typical Tuscan structure was intentionally left untouched where possible . All rooms are handpainted (in winter 2013) in the typical warm colours of a Tuscan country home : shades of yellow, orange and green and furnished according to the local 'arte povera' style. Constructed by the farmers it was used as stable for sheep + goats +as a hayloft. Prove are the typical vault ceilings, narrow doors + the small windows of the groundfloor as well as the imposing loft ceiling on the topfloor that seems to flow above. The large community swimming pool (5,5x11 ) is situated on the windprotected sunny slopes slightly below the guesthouse. Pavillions and solitary trees provide shade. The comfortable shallow entry platform (3x3m) offers space + security also for the smallest of our guests. All buildings are set in an extended garden park of more then 2 ha- the pride of the German owner . Cascades of flowers, rose bushes, citrus fruits as well as the surrounding meadows with many rare types of orchids and wild herbs create the unforgettable image of a lost paradise. Animated is this small paradise by various cats, 2 freeroaming wellbehaved dogs (1 male, 1 lively female), a pictoresque small herd of cameroon sheep, chicken, geese, ducks, pigeons and more. Stunning the variaty of birds and butterflies as well as fireflies. And with a bit of patience one may also see wild boars, deer and roe deer, foxes, badgers and porcupines as well as the rare Tuscan eagle that breeds in our valley. The housing complex is surrounded by grass, gravel - as well as terracotta paved walks and stairs which join the different levels with their romantic porches and apartments. Several natural quarry stone terraces with solitary trees like cypresses, acacia, pine and oak trees are leading to the small creek where the real wild nature begins. Enjoy the sunset in complete silence from your terrace with its shady loggia, garden furniture, sunbeds as well as a bbq. Gaze onto onto the extended gardens, the romantic creek and the surrounding maddows and vast macchia covered hills of this private property of more then 76 ha. Start your hiking and biking directly form your doorsteps on well marked trails. Or simply take a stroll on our meditation trail along the small creek with its waterfalls, walk up to the waterlily pond or through the valley to the nearby town of Castellina in Chianti Admire the increditable variaty if wild flowers and walk along small trails that we cut right through the maddows - amazing the spectacle of fireflies in late May and June, the rare songs of the our numerous nightingales and the concert of hundreds of birds in the morning and evening. Because of its privacy and our efforts this is still a rare paradise - and only minutes from the next town center !!! new!!!! sky observatory only few km away - stunning experience not only for children Location: We are a tiny hamlet 500 m from main road - no long rides on dusty country roads Being close to the next town Castellina in Chianti (only 3 km) shopping + dining is easy - one may even walk there - just zip into town for a coffee break or some of the best ice-creme of the area Some thoughts : isolated houses in hill positions may suffer from water shortage in summer + gusty winds in spring + autumn, shortening the pool season. Our protected position, typical for real old houses + the many wells help us avoid either. also during thunderstorms, electrical failures are not uncommon, but due to the closeness to town we profit from its priority rating. Pool: Since there are sooo many sights to visit + things to do most of our guests take off early in the morning + come back late in the evening, after a dip in the pool they are off again for dinner. so pool + leisure area are often deserted, cooler month of april + oct. you may use the owners's covered (unheated) pool on request for cooler days please keep in mind that there are fantastic hot spring facilities only 45 min drive away. bedroom window with mosquito screen Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 00864290523More

About the neighbourhood
spend a dream vacation in Tuscany's heart - ' Chianti Classico' - only a few miles from Florence and Siena - vineyard covered hills, silvery olive groves, vast forests and colourful macchia slopes - and admidst hidden ancient farm houses guarded by cypresses and towering pinetrees like the privately owned 16th century estate ' Poderi Val Verde ' . In this small familystyle hamlet, only 2 km from the next village the famous Castellina in Chianti , our sophisticated guests will find undisturbed and unspoiled nature, silence, sun, good food (cookery courses) Chianti wine, sports (trekking, biking, riding etc.) as well as culture. Surrounded by more then 2ha of wellcared parklike garden sits the imposing guest house complex which is dived in 3 apartments (2-4 Pers.) , and/or 2 semia...
