Description

This beautiful farmhouse is located in a very quiet and secluded position on the Castello di Volpaia estate, situated in Chianti, where we have successfully been renting two other properties, La Pozza and Il Casetto for many years. The owners of the estate, with long experience in providing guest accommodations, completed restoration of this stone-built farmhouse in 2005. Their aim was to make it the ideal residence for those seeking a totally relaxing holiday in Chianti, so they have provided full-time staff to take care of the house and to prepare meals for guests. The interior of Casavecchia Volpaia has been restored with full respect for the typical Tuscan traditions, and each bedroom has been equipped with an en-suite bathroom. Guests can enjoy incredible views from the covered terrace, which is furnished for outdoor eating and is also very practical for families as it overlooks the pool, allowing parents to relax while keeping an eye on the pool area. The fortified hamlet of Volpaia offers two nice restaurants, one of which owned by the estate. The English speaking estate staff can organize cooking lessons, visits to the wine cellars and will be glad to assist guests during their stay. There is also a tennis court in the hamlet of Volpaia, available on request. The property can also be rented with a cooking service (breakfast and another meal) at extra cost.

Our entire experience at Casavecchia was stupendous. Thanks! My family and I thought our stay at Casavecchia was beyond our expectations. The villa is very nicely appointed, with lovely furnishings, modern updates and incredible views. It was a pleasure to have Donika our housekeeper for the week who not only helped us with laundry and making beds and the like but she also aided us in our touring the area providing bus schedules, info on unknown treasures like Mount Oliveto, and just overall kindnesses. We loved meeting the owner Giovannella Stianti who checked us in, gave advice on restaurants, etc. and conducted the cooking class and tour of the winery at Volpaia. We will definitely return to this incredible place!”

“The very best part of Volpaia was Donika, the View, The Villa as a structure, and the pool. The location is amazing. Donika was the best hostess and her cooking was unbelievable. All of the guest were very grateful and appreciative of her personality, and her charm, and her talent. She made our week. The Cycling was the best we have ever had. Allesandra was great. Donika is fantastic!”

It was a wonderful trip and we all had a great time. The villa was delightful. The cook (Danika) does speak English and performs both as cook and maid. She was a big help and cooked some wonderful dishes for us...

Great setting and a wonderful area near Volpaia. Very presentable. Volpaia is a wonderful hamlet. The villa is a short drive away as described. Yes… no surprises on the villa. However, the maid/cook Doneka is worth special mention… she is terrific! Small kitchen not suitable for dining but the outside terrace is wonderful and serves as an eating area. All bedrooms are well placed and adequate. Some offer excellent scenery. Volpaia could not be any more charming and the winery, café, restaurant and church are all pluses to have in such a small hamlet…. Its like a little paradise. The owner also provided a winery tour with a tasting session afterwards…

The villa was much larger and more spacious than they anticipated. With a family of 7 they felt like everyone had quite a bit of private space and room to stretch out. The interior of the villas was very well maintained and fresh and much more updated in feeling than anticipated. Danica was a most unexpected yet cherished part of the trip. She took great care to make sure the family was well settled in. The family felt that she was a most special addition to their stay, and it gave them a sense of well being that she took such great care of them.

We have returned from our trip to Florence and Cassavecchia Volpaia near Radda in Chianti. It was a wonderful trip and we all had a great time. We only had 6 of our family, instead of all 8, but our son-in-law and our oldest grandson couldn't make it. The villa was delightful. The cook (Danika) does speak English and performs both as cook and maid. She was a big help and cooked some wonderful dishes for us. The weather was cool - not swimming weather. Danika brought groceries on Sunday and cooked for us on the June 2 holiday! I need to thank someone for the complimentary wine and starter provisions. Thanks for your help.

My husband, myself and our adult children/spouses spent a week at Casavecchia, a villa that sleeps 8. It was a 4-bedroom, 4,5-bath restored farmhouse with fabulous views across the wine estate from a wonderful terrace that we frequented often. The bathrooms were very nicely upgraded and 2 of the bedrooms were medium size with 2 large sized. The best thing about the villa, however, is that a housekeeper/cook is included in the price for 8 hours each day from Monday-Friday. It was so special to tour all day, than come home to wine glasses set out and appetizers prepared for cocktail hour. The dining room table would be set an dinner was ready each evening with whatever courses we selected. We stuffed ourselves each night on delicious food and then sat around visiting while Donika cleaned up the kitchen. She was friendly, helpful and a delight. It just doesn’t get any better!

The house was wonderful, Donica was an amazing cook and I have the waistline to prove it! The house was really lovely, each room having a wonderful bathroom was great. The pool was great as well, it really warmed up the second week and we used it then. Everyone loved the cooking class with Giovannella. If you have more specific questions I would be happy to answer them but we had a wonderful time and would love to return.
