Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Radda in Chianti, Italy your home away from home

Formerly known simply as Radda, Radda in Chianti is a Tuscan wine village located in a picturesque location on a hillside between two rivers, in the province of Siena, Italy. Radda in Chianti remains close enough to Siena and Florence to make travel easy, but far away that it is still an ideal destination for those looking to ‘get away from it all’. Self catering accommodation can be found in the form of apartments, villas and holiday homes.

Things to do in Radda in Chianti, Italy

The Chianti region is famous for its red wine, and Radda is part of the original Chianti Province that was first drawn up in 1716.

Most offer free tasting sessions, and you are able to go by yourself or as part of an organised tour. A number of shops within the village sell locally-produced wines, and sitting outside your holiday rental accommodation, sipping a glass of Chianti under the sun is regarded as the ideal Tuscan experience.

Amazing Tuscan Holiday!

5 of 5
We stayed in the Main House from May 6 - May 13 (7 bedrooms, 4 baths). We can't imagine a better home base for our Tuscan holiday. Alberto and Camilla were excellent and accommodating hosts from the time we booked until our departure. We were a group of 10 - 6 adults and 4 children. The house was clean and eclectic - and was stocked with everything we needed (including very nice "pack-n-plays" for the two year olds in our group). The view from the upper terrace was absolutely amazing and we spent much of our time there relaxing and enjoying the view of the Tuscan hills. We had arranged the welcome dinner our first night and it was served by Alberto and Camilla - this was one of our best meals in Tuscany - with the highlight being the wild boar pasta (delicious!). We also enjoyed the pizza night prepared in the outdoor wood burning pizza oven. Every pizza that came out was better than the last and ended with a Nutella pizza that was a huge hit with the kids. Both meals included Prosecco and Alberto's Chianti. This is a beautiful region of Tuscany, but more rugged than areas of south of Siena where more rolling hills are the norm. You will often find yourself on gravel roads, but once you embrace this, you come to realize that this is the place to be for a more "authentic" Tuscan experience. Another of our best meals was right down the hill in the town of Vagliagli - La Taverna. While we did day trips to Siena, Florence and San Gimignano, our best days were when we stayed closer to "home" and visited Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. This was such an enjoyable week and we already miss our "house" in Chianti. For other travelers out there - a few tips or answers to questions we had - use GPS - yes, the house is at the end of a long, gravel road down a hill; there is a European-style wash machine (use YouTube videos to figure out how to operate if you are unfamiliar); plumbing is different - you can't use the shower and tub or wash machine at the same time and expect hot water - this is part of the charm; as with most pools in Europe, they are not heated, so May is a bit chilly for a swim; the home is well equipped with cooking utensils, pots and pans, dishes, wine glasses, etc. There is an American-style coffee maker, but we preferred to use the stovetop Moka pot. There was coffee and sugar in the house, as well as ample spices. We found the best grocery store was the large Coop in Siena, just outside of the city (no gravel road required). Enjoy!
