Vacation Rental Description


CHIANTI CASHMERE GOAT FARM IS A SINGLE UNIT VACATION RENTAL AS DESCRIBED BELOW, AVAILABLE SATURDAY TO SATURDAY FROM EASTER THROUGH OCTOBER.

An exceptional spot, in an already extraordinary location... there is a truly perfect, unadulterated Tuscan landscape from every window! NO NOISE... NO TRAFFIC... NO SCHEDULES TO KEEP... just simply plain, kick-your-shoes-off, get-away-from-it-all!

Only 1,5 km from the village of Radda in Chianti, and midway between Florence and Siena, our 25-acre farm is nestled into the side of a hill at the end of its own 400 meter, gated, gravel road that twists and turns its way through the woods until arriving at the farm buildings, with the valley spread out below. The property is made up of the original 300 year old remodelled stone farmhouse available WEEKLY for vacation rentals, a nearby stone hay barn which houses the owner's home, and a new stone building at the far side of the property, location of our cashmere gift shop.

Commanding an uninterrupted view of one of the most exceptionally beautiful valleys that the Chianti area has to offer, La Penisola overlooks the VOLPAIA VALLEY: a perfect blend of gentle hills, geometric vineyards, and unkept woodland and pasture. The house is a self-catering vacation rental, surrounded by its own separate garden, boasts a spacious al fresco pergolato outdoor eating area, and direct access to the private swimming pool. Harmonious, centuries-old stone Tuscan farmhouses roofed with terra-cotta tiles together with strict building codes have assured that this particular valley has NO modern buildings to ruin the view! A step back into time, as it were!

At Chianti Cashmere Goat Farm, you will be woken gently by the swoosh of the doves' flight through the valley and the gentle gingle of the goats' bells at pasture.....watch the sun slide across the hillside and the shadows lengthen into dark as you sit under the grape arbor sipping a glass of chilled wine after a harried day as a tourist......We have tried to create an authentic, unpretentious place to call your home while in Tuscany
We have rented since 1988, and 75% of our guests are repeat or word-of-mouth. Within an easy days' drive from just about everything worth visiting in Tuscany and nearby Umbria, LA PENISOLA offers an oasis of utter silence, calm, simplicity and comfort. Ours is your 'HOME AWAY FROM HOME' to come back to again and again.

The only night noises here are the wildlife in the woods. No TV. No discos. No traffic. No crowds. No schedules to keep....savor what the unadulterated Tuscan countryside has to offer...the sounds of woodland animals, the rustle of the breeze through the trees...the deer bugling and the boar foraging in the woods....relax
