The owners of the lovely Casetta Carina are a Canadian and a New Zealander, and they are good friends of ours. They have completely renovated a three story flat in a 15th Century stone hamlet, maintaining many of the house’s ancient timbered ceilings while tastefully adding modern amenities. The hamlet is set amongst the romantic Tuscan countryside of rolling hills, forest, olive groves, and vineyards. Inside they have created a bright and airy, yet cosy, set of rooms that remain in keeping with the farmhouse exterior. The flat features a state-of-the-art kitchen and a modern WC & shower. Off the kitchen is a furnished balcony perfect for all meals (comfortably seats 4) while a second upstairs balcony is the suitable for two people to relax, read, or take some sun. There is an outside terrace with a large umbrella and an outside dining table and chairs suitable for outside dining.
Surely the most stunning feature of this property is the fabulous 18 metre swimming pool and terrace which is surrounded by landscaped gardens. The sweeping view is quintessentially Tuscan. It takes in vineyards, olive groves and an ancient hilltop village perched on the horizon a couple of kilometres distant. The pool is 60 meters from the flat. It is an easy 30 second downhill walk, but it is a1 minute uphill walk back up to the flat. There is private access and the pool itself is completely private, no other properties look onto it. The 18 metre length (58 feet) of the pool allows for serious lap swimming, and the terrace is perfect for long, lazy, relaxing days!
The apartment is located amongst a cluster of stone houses in the hamlet of Bricciano and the owners live in a nearby house. The flat has east and southern exposure. There is ample parking just a few meters from the house, some of which is shaded. There are essential shops, banks and chemists in Gaiole in Chianti, which is less than a ten minute drive from the house.
The impressive 18 metre/58 feet long swimming pool (that the owners discretely use in the absence of the guests) is downhill from the flat and reached by descending a fairly steep path. The pool is 18m long x 4m wide x 1.4m deep (one depth). It has full sun exposure. There is a shade gazebo, a large umbrella, and chaise-lounge chairs.
