Cava di Calbello

An arcade of wisteria marks the perimeter of the wonderfully restored garden.
4.5 of 5 stars
Very good

An arcade of wisteria marks the perimeter of the wonderfully restored garden.
Whether dining, making plans or just chilling, the living terrace speaks of easy congeniality.
At the end of the approach walk is the wide patio accessed from all living quarters.
A few steps beyond the outdoor living area the lavender edged path leads to the swimming pool.
The approach to the house passes the beautiful gardens set in the former quarry.
Not far from the kitchen this outdoor area allows for meals al fresco for the whole crowd.
A dining table in the corner of the large living area can seat 8 comfortably.
This bright living area with comfortable seating accesses the garden through French doors.
When cooler the open fireplace will warm the atmosphere as you gather to recall the day's adventures
Wide french doors lead immediately to the funished terrace and well-tended garden.
A lovely table is easily set and cooks can be organised to help make dinner a special event.
The large kitchen is of professional standard and beautifully equipped.
Modern appliances and a country look have easy harmony in Calbello's roomy kitchen.
What better place to relax with a good book and a pitcher of lemonade.
The green doors lead into the living/dining room, the staircases lead up to ensuite double bedrooms.
And relax!
The ground floor master bedroom has french doors to the garden from the bedroom & ensuite bathroom.
A rippling roofline and greenery contribute to a relaxed soak in this ensuite.
Cleverly renovated Cava di Calbello provides privacy for its guests with bedrooms on three  levels.
Three of the four bedroom suites have direct access to the patio and gardens beyond.
The shower room with its unusually tiled floor serves the small double bedroom across the hall.
A pretty twin bedroom for the little ones in your group or those who prefer to sleep alone.
The WC and dressing room are just off the master bath.
The ground floor master bedroom has garden access from the bedroom and from its ensuite bathroom.
The spacious first floor double bedroom suite is accessed by the higher external staircase.
Double bedrooms have lovely linens & ample storage so you feel you are not living out of a suitcase
Wonderful art works adorn many of the walls in this delightful house.
The en suite shower room has a very large travertine walk-in shower and beautiful marble floors.
The shorter external staircase leads to a spacious ensuite double bedroom.
The entrance to the property makes no secret of its quarry origins.
Sunbeds and the privacy afforded by walls and a generous garden mean sunbathing in complete privacy.
The pool has a ramp entrance, which makes it appropriate even for guests with mobility difficulties.
It's only a couple of kms up to Orgia's restaurant, whose terrace has Siena sitting on the horizon.

From the other reviews that I've read on this property, I feel as if we stayed in a completely different villa. Though the grounds and villa were ample in size, the house is quite worn and in need of an update. There was a bathroom for each of the 4 bedrooms, but only 2 had a true shower and one... more

Management response:

Dear Joan, I was sorry to read this review. You contacted us upon arrival to complain of the closed shutters and lack of cleanliness, and Carla was dispatched to solve the problem. We apologised, you declared yourself satisfied, and yet here is a terrible review of this beautiful house. And some of the things you complain of are clearly described... more

We are currently in our 3rd week here. We are absolutely delighted. The property wasn't our first choice as we had intended to stay at Casole d'Elsa where we have rented twice before. But we are glad that the property was recommended to us. It lis below the village of Orgia, location of Restaurant Cateni, which in itself is worth... more
