Review 3474: Parker Villas, Mezza Luna


Review by Judith from VT

3bed/3bath house outside Radda in Chianti, Tuscany Chianti


April 19 - April 26, One week


This villa was just outside the village of Radda in a residential neighborhood. The grounds were lovely, and very private. The owner lived next door, but the house was not visible from most of our property. Radda is only four or five minutes away, and a lovely village.

Nearby Amenities

A car is necessary to get to the village where there were several grocery stores, a coop, a number of small shops, restaurants, and wine shops.

The House/Apartment

This is a fairly new house with a large living room, kitchen, two bedrooms (each with full bath) on the first floor, and another bedroom and full bath on the second floor.

You can view the property directly: Mezza Luna.


There were several seating areas outside and a pool (not open at this time).

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The place was lovely -- spotlessly clean and well equipped in every aspect.


Beds and bathrooms were excellent.


There were six of us and we cooked dinner most nights. The kitchen is nicely equipped and attractive. There was also a washing machine in the basement.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We have found The Parker Company completely reliable to deal with -- this is the third time we have rented from them. The owner of the villa spoke limited English, but we seemed to manage very well. She was extremely nice. Her daughter came by a couple of times -- she was fluent in English, most helpful and delightful.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

This is a great spot, very conveniently located. It worked out extremely well for three couples to share.

Things to do in this area

A great location for exploring many towns in Tuscany.
