Review 1757: Chianti Cashmere, La Penisola


Review by John from MN

house and apartment on a farm near Radda, Tuscany Chianti


June 18 - 25, 2005 and same week 2004, 1 week each year


Once was not enough!

We spent our second week at La Penisola June 2005. The first time was a year earlier. Why did we return? What is not to love about the rustic charm of an ancient Tuscan farmhouse situated overlooking the Volpia valley, near the small village of Radda in Chianti. It had everything we were looking for - perfect sunsets, softly bleating goats, yet quiet solitude, 100 shades of green, vineyards all around - all that and a pool!

The location was perfect for exploring nearby Tuscan villages with their local markets and wineries. Our host was very helpful with directions and offered good suggestions for activities.

The farmhouse was spacious for the 4 of us (could easily have held 6) and had everything to make our week comfortable. That included a full kitchen that we used each evening to prepare the simple typical meals from our day’s purchases of local goods.

Toasting the sunset with wines produced less than 10 km away was a great way to end each day.

Maybe twice is not enough ...
