  • Stunning views across rolling hills
  • Walking distance to restaurant
  • Radda in Chianti 5-minute drive

With views across rolling hills, forests and vineyards, this neat little retreat is an antidote to life’s busyness – a simple yet charming bolt hole in the Chianti Classico countryside just five minutes from delightful Radda. For those looking for an authentic Italian cottage experience, Casa Momi fits the bill perfectly.

Even inside, eyes turn to the view, like a natural work of art through the large windows – and a reminder of the many attractions that lie outside. While this may simply mean time by the pool, a team effort over the barbecue or sunset drinks at your terrace table for two, you’re also perfectly located for exploring the local area. If you’re in need of inspiration for a day out, the English-speaking owners who live next door will be happy to make suggestions - and the celebrated medieval hilltop town of Radda in Chianti is just a five-minute drive away. 

Local Area

Radda has restaurants a-plenty, but if you don’t want to drive there is also a restaurant within walking distance of Casa Momi. A little further away, in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region, are Castellina, Panzano and Greve, home to the region’s largest wine fair, which takes place in September. Not far from there, the Monte San Michele Nature Park offers both long hikes and more leisurely rambles and, if you’d rather not go it alone, a licensed wilderness guide can share their insights into the local flora and fauna and keep you on the right track.

Medieval Siena is a 50-minute drive away, Arezzo an hour and Florence, the home of the Renaissance, just over an hour. Each offers a wealth of art and culture, churches and museums, food and drink, combining a relaxing holiday with the most inspiring of Italian experiences.

We have had a lovely time. The weather has been perfect and we’ve really enjoyed the pool and terrace as well as the beautiful Chianti countryside. We had some great walks – we used the Komoot app and it worked very well for us with a variety of vineyard, olive grove and woodland walk options (generally with a great lunch stop!). We also had a great day hiring e-bikes in Greve, which was tiring but fun, and involved the best meal of the holiday at Lamole. All in all a great holiday and thank you to Rodolfo for making us so welcome (great tomatoes, raspberries and cake!).

Polly and Tom, September 2023

A wonderful week at Casa Momi – Rodolfo is a lovely host and the view is to die for. Radda is a great little town and we recommend Bar Sandy for a morning coffee and croissant. Thank you Rodolfo for a really lovely holiday.

Roger and Jane, September 2023

Perfect! We have travelled quite a lot but Italy is our favourite country, Tuscany is our favourite region and now Chianti is our favourite part of Tuscany! Coffee, food and wine has been excellent everywhere, every day. Le Vin’Osteria exceptionally so. Rodolfo is a great host. Such a warm welcome and company makes such a difference.

Malcolm and Helen, September 2023

A fantastic 2-week stay – Rodolfo has been the most amazing host – always helpful and with a big smile on his face! Tuscany offers everything to the holiday goer – cultural enrichment in Florence and Siena, relaxing in the sun at the blissful pool, wine tasting and of course sampling all the delicious food. For keen cyclists, the cycling is also fantastic. Thank you again to Rodolfo for a magnificent trip!

Hilary and Philippa, August 2023

We had a fabulous time at Casa Momi… beautiful setting and location. Fabulous pool, very comfortable accommodation, well equipped and very clean. Rodolpho was very helpful and hospitable with frequent little surprises in the morning on table outside.., fresh raspberries or strawberries from the garden… delightful (obviously seasonal!). Amanda was very helpful and responsive with questions we had and advice on local travel etc…. So all in all a big thank you!

Clive Steward, July 2023

A memorable 2-week stay. Rodolfo has been so friendly and helpful – nothing was too much for him. Lots of lovely gastronomic surprises from Rodolfo’s garden appeared on the table outside! The pool is a real asset. We’ve had a great time – visits to Siena, Florence, the sculpture park and to a number of nearby villages and towns. A big thank you to Amanda, who has been very helpful.

Clive and Shelagh, July 2023

Comfortable villa, nice pool, great location and very kind, helpful and pleasant host/owner.

Andrew Turner, July 2023

Our third time at lovely Casa Momi. Our thanks to our ever-attentive hosts, Rodolfo and Gianpaolo.

Peter and Ann, June 2023

We had a wonderful week at Casa Momi. It was in the perfect location to explore Chianti and the villa itself was in a beautiful setting with a fantastic view and a lovely pool. Rodolfo and Gianpaolo were the perfect hosts!

Karen Rowland, June 2023

Lovely location, friendly and helpful hosts.

Peter Broadhurst, May 2023

A lovely relaxing week despite the changeable weather. We can highly recommend the wine tour, lunch tasting menu with wines to complement each course at Castello d’Albola. Rodolfo was welcoming and a very friendly host – very happy to help out/advise if needed. Thank you once again to Rodolfo and Gianpaolo.

Peter and Penny, May 2023

We loved staying here and the odd afternoon shower apart, have had lovely sunny weather all week. Don’t miss the fabulous fruit and vegetables at Panzano market on Sunday morning – nor the excellent butcher. Greve is pretty and nearby, Siena is simply stunning and San Gimignano is a must. Best bits – relaxing in silence, watching the sunsets over the hills having a glass on the terrace, spotting fireflies as night falls. Thank you Rodolfo for your warm and generous hosting.

Sara and Kevin, May 2023

We have enjoyed a wonderful stay here with all that Tuscany and the Chianti region has to offer. We have eaten amazing food and drunk many bottles of Chianti. There is so much to explore we will definitely want to return. Thanks to Rodolfo and Gianpaolo for sharing your little piece of heaven.

Roger and Lucy, October 2022

Stunning location, host very welcoming and helpful and overall a Tuscany treasure👍🇮🇹😎.

Stephen Charlesworth, September 2022

Second visit to Casa Momi which we enjoyed very much. The location, views accommodation was excellent. Rodolfo and Gianpaulo were perfect hosts. The swimming pool is a delight. Easy access to Radda which we enjoyed walking to. Radda is within easy travelling distance to many of the Chianti towns. All in all another excellent Simpson holiday.

Richard Field, September 2022

Thank you for the most wonderful stay at Casa Momi. Rodolfo was simply the best host and Chianti is just magical. We will be back for sure, this is such a special place and we will miss it, especially the sunsets.

Ken and Belle, August 2022

Casa Momi was well worth the wait! From the moment we arrived the VIEW had us, hook, line and sinker! The afternoons and evenings were spent on the terrace or by the pool. If you have binoculars, bring them! Rudolfo was amazing.

Linda and Andrew, July 2022

Our third stay here (very lucky us!). You will love, in no particular order, the panoramic views, the assiduous attention of Rodolfo, and the acrobatics of the house martins!

Robert and Christina, July 2022

Firstly Rodolfo and Gianpaolo are 'superhosts'. The view speaks for itself and you could just sit and look at it all day. Beautiful holiday!

Michael and Helen, June 2022

Back again, lovely as ever. Rodolfo and Gianpaulo excellent hosts as always.

Peter and Ann, June 2022

We had a lovely stay at Casa Momi on our honeymoon. The views are absolutely gorgeous and the hosts were very welcoming! You can walk into nearby Radda or drive to lots of lovely Tuscan towns. Jonathan shared some great recommendations – would love to visit again and thoroughly recommend!

Katherine Richards, September 2020

Two very enjoyable and relaxing weeks at Casa Momi. The views from the terrace are amazing whilst enjoying evening meals when the sun goes down with a bottle of local wine. We especially enjoyed the lovely clean pool after a day of visiting Chianti villages. Two weeks made perfect by our hosts Rodolfo and Gianpaolo who were very attentive with any questions and the fresh eggs and other goodies which were very much appreciated. A lovely villa in a fantastic position.

Rod & Pat Aster, September 2019

Like all the other visitors we have had a delightful holiday in Chianti. We have visited many places and our hosts Gianpaolo and Rodolfo were lovely supplying us with eggs and delicious figs.

Louise & Steve Buckingham, September 2019

We have had a fantastic time at Casa Momi. The two hosts have been brilliant, really friendly and helpful and the fresh eggs are great. We came here for our honeymoon and couldn’t have asked for a better location. The views from the villa are amazing and it is so peaceful.

Matthew & Kimberley, August 2019

Two very enjoyable and relaxing weeks at Casa Momi. We especially enjoyed the pool and the outstanding views from the terrace over the Tuscan hills, a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of Chianti. Rodolfo and Gianpaolo were perfect hosts, very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Radda, a lovely hilltop town with lots of good eating places. Another excellent Simpson holiday!

Richard & Maureen Field, July 2019

Casa Momi has all the ingredients for a perfect break. Our two hosts, Gianpaolo and Rodolfo have wonderful Tuscan hospitality. We enjoyed a daily dip in the cooling pool and a good dose of sunshine along with glorious Tuscan vistas and ambience.

Colin & Lynette, July 2019

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Momi very much. The views from the terrace are stunning especially with a glass of local wine! The villa was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We found plenty of places to visit and enjoyed coming back to the fabulous pool and relaxing in the garden. Rodolfo and Gianpaolo were very helpful with any questions we had and the fresh eggs every morning were greatly appreciated.

Robert & Fiona, July 2019

A fantastic two weeks made perfect by our hosts, Rodolfo and Gianpaolo – their daily treats and conversation.

Lee & Chris, June 2019

Our host and his family were amazing. Fresh treats left each day and they were the perfect mix of helpful and discreet.

Jamie & Vicky, May 2019

This was our second stay at Casa Momi, but the view from the terrace and the pretty pool and garden took our breath away again when we arrived. The villa is very clean and comfortable. We love that we can walk into Radda to have lunch, wander the narrow streets and browse the shops or just have a walk around the walls then return to have a swim in the pool and drinks on the terrace while enjoying the great views. And when we managed to tear ourselves away there were lots of places to visit within a short drive. We can't think of anywhere better to enjoy the very essence of Chianti.

Mr & Mrs Lewis, July 2018

Casa Momi was excellent and the owners were helpful and discreet – if we wanted to return to Chianti we would certainly check the availability of Casa Momi first. Fresh eggs every day, wonderful views and a lovely pool.

Chris & Janet, May 2018

We have had a lovely week in Tuscany celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The setting is beautiful and even though the last week of October the weather has still been around 20˚C most days. Giampaolo and Rodolfo are very attentive hosts and the daily supply of eggs is a lovely treat. A thoroughly enjoyable time and numerous glasses of Chianti consumed!

Julian & Elizabeth, October 2017

Lovely hosts very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, views fantastic, very quiet at night and very local for Radda In Chianti – a very typical hilltop village in the Chianti region. Easily accessed from the Firenze/Siena motorway and a great location for touring the Tuscan countryside and cities.

Mr Hunt, October 2017

Autumn is in the air and we were glad of a fleece in the evenings – but bright sunny days were perfect for exploring. Castellina in Chianti is worth a visit, as are of course Siena and San Gimignano. Arriving early in San Gimignano is a good idea as there are big car parks but they fill up! Many thanks to Rodolfo and Giampaolo for their friendly, hospitable welcome and of course the eggs.

Gill and Geoff, September 2017

The view is like a painting – my photos don't do it justice! A relaxing break even if the weather was very mixed. Volpaia worth a visit (and not far), an untouched little hamlet. Rodolfo and Giampaolo are friendly, yet discrete and very generous with the lovely eggs.

Jenny & Roland, September 2017

Simpson Travel made the holiday experience simple and stress-free. Communication was excellent and frequent. Casa Momi was exactly as detailed and perfect for a stress-free, relaxing break.

Mr Drew, August 2017

A lovely visit, welcoming hosts. The view is incredible. Enjoyed lounging by the pool and watching sunsets over dinner. Visited San Gimignano, walked into Radda, wine tasted at a nice ex-convent there. Also drove to a lovely hilltop town called Montefioralle which is worth a view but generally lazed and enjoyed weather, pool and view – perfect after days in Florence. Will definitely come back to Tuscany again.

Eve & Ali, August 2017

Casa Momi was amazing. The accommodation, the pool and the view made it one of our best holidays ever. What really made it extra special though were our hosts, Giampaolo and Rodolfo who were FAB! So friendly and so helpful. Fresh eggs every day and other lovelies. Always had helpful info, like about where to park when we went out for the day. Cannot thank them enough – we will be back!

Mrs Whitelam, July 2017

Amazing week here, really nice to have the fresh eggs every morning. The view from the pool is simply amazing.

Paul & Chloe, July 2017

One of the most beautiful areas we have ever stayed. The villa is set in the most idyllic place and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. The owners could not be more attentive, assisting us with finding gluten free restaurants and providing fresh eggs, cherries and salad from their garden. We would definitely look to come back and stay with Simpson again.

Carl & Katie, June 2017

Imagine discovering a pair of long lost beneficent cousins whose language you do not share but whose wholesome familiarity is reassuring and comfortable – Rodolfo and Giampaolo. Eggs appear and other goodies too – magic. The view is Tuscany in a bottle and is our best vista in decades of self-catering, top-end villas! We have driven in busy places before in Italy but it is to be avoided if possible. The buses to Florence and Siena are on time and cheap.

Jack & Jane, June 2017

Gosh very hot here this week, never known Tuscany to be this hot! Radda in Chianti is a very nice small town, with a good range of shops and restaurants. Villa good, owners helpful, pool welcome. Nice touch daily eggs and fresh raspberries.

Wendy & Duncan, June 2017

Our holiday stay at Casa Momi was fabulous. The villa was clean and comfortable, the swimming pool and surrounding areas were immaculately kept. It was exactly as it looked on your website, the views were lovely, we were not disappointed when we saw it in the flesh! The owners were helpful, friendly and supplied us with fresh eggs every day for breakfast, which were delicious.

Mr Atkinson, August 2016

Casa Momi was the perfect setting for our first trip to Italy, a wonderful starting point for our Tuscan adventure. Excellent pool, extremely clean property and exquisite views. The owners Giampaolo and Rodolfo, who live next door, were extremely helpful but also very discreet, supplying us every day with fresh eggs from their hens, alongside lettuces and herbs from the garden. A big thank you to our charming and most helpful hosts. Highly recommended.

Ian and Mel, July 2016

I cannot think of a higher recommendation than 100%+++ perfect. Whether it be the location, the view, the swimming pool, the owners (and their friendliness and attention to detail), the ease of visiting Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and other top destinations in Chianti or simply enjoying Radda and the local villages and vineyards, this is a two person holiday destination that really ought to be kept secret in order to prevent those that might love it from finding it!

Mr Nimmo, June 2016

The villa was lovely and we enjoyed our stay. The pool and garden was immaculately kept and the Italian owners were friendly and very helpful. The fresh eggs and cherries left each day was a lovely touch. We would definitely recommend this villa to others, couldn't fault it at all.

John & Linda, June 2016

I simply wanted to say what a great holiday we have just had. All the references about the villa owners were exactly true, lovely hosts, the eggs and cherries every morning were wonderful! And I have to give you special thanks for your very helpful guidance notes – for instance, we wouldn't have thought to visit Cortona and San Gimignano without them; and your hints for where to park in Siena were invaluable – they are worth their weight in gold! So – keep up the good work, and thanks again.

Anne & Richard, June 2016

The view from the house and pool is brilliant. The owners are very nice, helpful but also quiet and discreet. We got fresh eggs every morning and also tomatoes, salad and figs. We can only recommend this beautiful place.

Manthey, August 2015

We have both had a lovely stay at Casa Momi. Beautiful location, immaculate pool kept spotlessly clean with stunning views over the Chianti countryside. Very airy functional apartment that too was exceedingly clean upon our arrival. We enjoyed the fresh eggs every morning laid by the owner's hens along with the freshly picked raspberries! Our hosts made us most welcome. Thank you a great place to tour Tuscany from.

Mrs Burr, June 2015

Fabulous house perfect for two with an amazing view and superb pool. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. Even though they live next door, they were very discreet. Fresh eggs every morning and sometimes berries from their garden were a real bonus. 20-minute walk into Radda in Chianti which was a beautiful place with great places to eat and drink. Would definitely recommend it!

Mr Wright, June 2014

What a great week we had at Casa Momi. The location is lovely, the sunsets stunning and the casa comfortable. The hosts were lovely and made us feel very welcome. And the fresh eggs each morning went down really well!

Mr Taylor, August 2013

Our stay at Casa Momi was perfect in every way. We couldn't possibly have been happier with our choice. Giampaolo and Rodolfo were so welcoming and hospitable, they made our stay at their villa truly memorable. We would highly recommend them as hosts to anyone looking for the best of Italy. Thank you for your assistance in acquiring this wonderful getaway.

Mr Riley, August 2013

The villa was lovely and the views from it were incredible. The owners were extremely friendly and the fresh eggs and raspberries they gave us each morning were very much enjoyed and appreciated. Radda is a lovely little town with very good restaurants. We had a very good holiday.

Mrs Hinchley, July 2013

We have just come back from a week at Casa Momi. It is a wonderful place. The house was very comfortable and our hosts, Rodolfo and Giampaolo, next door were very friendly with helpful advice, eggs from their chickens every morning and fresh produce from their garden. Radda is a lovely little town with some really good restaurants. This was our first trip to Tuscany and hopefully won’t be our last, although we will be hard pushed to find anywhere better to stay.

Mrs McWilliams, June 2013

We were delighted with Casa Momi in every way. The view was amazing, the grounds were beautiful with a lovely pool area and the accommodation itself was charming, functional and spotlessly clean. The owners were very helpful and generous with the produce from their garden which included delivering fresh eggs each morning for our breakfast. The location was excellent with lots of nice places to visit nearby, in addition to Radda. We went to Panzano, Greve, Siena and San Gimignano which provided a nice balance to time spent relaxing by the pool. Thank you very much for arranging our holiday so efficiently.

Mrs Price, August 2012
