“back to nature”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2014

Staying with 8 people at Chianti Cashmere was one of the best holidays we ever had. The quiet place, the pool, all the animals around the house was a big pleasure. The surrounding villages were very nice daily trips. The Butcher "Mario" has been adding a lot of pleasure to our holiday. The beef that he is selling is the best there is. In addition, his shop is a pleasure dome.

“Serene and private. With goats.”
Reviewed February 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Four of us, two couples, stayed here in early September. The setting and view is absolutely perfect - the Volpaia valley, with the town of Volpaia is the distance. If you can tear yourself away from the long table under the arbor the location in Radda is great for day trips to the hill towns. Radda itself is worth a look too. Nora recommends a drive around the valley on your Sunday after arriving Saturday, including a market, one-of-a-kind butcher shop and Volpaia - do it. A good way to get the feel of the area.

For two couples there is essentially one set of rooms upstairs, and one set downstairs, giving privacy for each. Whoever gets the upstairs rooms should buy wine for the whole gang though. Downstairs is fine but upstairs is much nicer.

I'd definitely stay here again!

“Magnificent”
Reviewed January 15, 2016 for a stay in April 2014

We had such a nice time visiting Chianti Cashmere. We stayed in the big guesthouse with the pool. (It wasn't pool season, but that would be a big draw for another trip.) The goats and dogs were super fun. We even got to comb a goat!

Nora was a delight. You can really see the pride she takes in her work. Can't wait to go back!!

“An Ongoing Joy”
Reviewed January 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Our visits to La Penisola have taken place each summer for at least 20 years. The house is a simple two story dwelling with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. It is comfortable, attractive, and has an outstanding view of a forested valley with vineyards. The swimming pool is large, well tended, and deliciously cool after a hot day's journey around the area of Radda.
Nora Kravis, a licensed veterinarian, raises cashmere goats, some of whom live adjacent to the rental property. The goats are beautiful and fun to watch. Nora also has several very large dogs who tend the goats, only adding to the attraction of the place!
We have brought family members and friends to this treasure. We plan on returning over and over!

“Pure Bliss!”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

I needed a break from our day to day life. Rush here, rush there, hurry hurry hurry. When we arrived at the entrance to the Chianti Cashmere Goat Farm, we turned down the road and entered a different time and space. We became one with nature. There were deers to lead us to the house!!!

We then met the owner, Nora who is a dynamo. Always on the go.

The house is surrounded by beauty, the goats are amazing (goat therapy is the best thing for a tired soul), the dogs are lovely and the idea of staying on a property that does so much for nature and animals made every day perfect.

The house is wonderful, spacious with phenomenal views.

The pool was amazing and just for us!

Come and visit, you will not regret it!

“A slice of heaven”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

I have returned seven years in a row to Nora's magical farm. The views of the Volpaia valley from the beautiful terrace are breath-taking. The stone farmhouse is comfortable, very private and equipped with all the basics you will need for your stay. The showstopper is the beauty of the valley. Awake to the sound of songbirds and softly bleating goats. Enjoy a meal at the outdoor dining table while the sun sets over the valley. Bliss. It is a peaceful, quiet and truly lovely place. Nora is an extraordinary host and an invaluable resource about the Chianti region and it's many attractions. She is always there if you need her but does not intrude. Don't miss the opportunity to dabble in goat farming for a true slice of life at La Penisola! Ciao Nora and see you next year!
