Overview

San Casciano in Val di Pesa Villa Rental Photos and Description

18 Bedrooms, 22.0 Bathrooms, 35 Sleeps

Hold a family reunion, anniversary party, or wedding Tuscan-style at Villa Gaia. For centuries, Italian noble families celebrated at this eighteen-bedroom villa near Siena in the Chianti region; now, its grand interiors have been restored and offer a luxurious retreat. Not only is there plenty of space for the whole family, there’s plenty to do on and around its manicured gardens.

From the moment you step onto Villa Gaia’s lush grounds, eight full-time staff members are there to ensure your comfort. Gather everyone around the barbecue or in one of several al fresco dining areas, relax in the pool, take the mountain bikes for a spin or face off on the bocce and tennis courts. After a day of activities, lounge in the whirlpool and sauna. There’s even Wi-Fi access and a PlayStation for the technologically inclined — or teenagers.

The villa’s interiors reflect its storied past as a home for aristocracy since 1400. The spacious two-story living room is covered by an arched brick ceiling, and has multiple seating areas, while other rooms have plush carpets and drapes, damask wallpaper and trompe l’oeil paintings. There’s a fully equipped kitchen, but the staff can arrange for a cooking service and assist with wine selection.

Each of the eighteen bedrooms has air conditioning, satellite TV and an en-suite bathroom. In the main house, there are sixteen bedrooms: one with a single bed, two with two twin beds each, and thirteen bedrooms with queen beds. There are two bedrooms in the annex, each with a queen bed. The bedrooms have the same traditional feel as the rest of the house, with antique furniture and richly colored fabrics.

Should you tire of bocce or tennis, there’s also golf and riding stables nearby. Arrange for a wine or bike tour of the area, or a motorboat excursion along the beautiful coastline of Monte Argenario. Villa Gaia is located in the town of Casole d’Elsa, just a 20 minute drive from Siena, 9 miles from San Gimignano, 35 miles from Florence and 166 miles from Rome.

What to do in the Siena region of Tuscany?

The medieval town of Siena was founded by the Etruscans and later became a Roman colony. During the 13th and 14th centuries it flourished as one of the major cities of Europe, growing rich from banking and the wool trade. The 14th century saw a great amount of construction: the Duomo, the Palazzo Publico and the Campo Square were all products of this time. Siena's glory took a tragic downturn by the end of the 14th century due to the Black Death and political upheaval. The city became little more than a rural market center. It was exactly this decline that accounts for the incredible state of medieval preservation that Siena exhibits today. Built across several hills and valleys, you will find a bit of up and down while walking through the historical center. However, the lack of traffic makes it a wonderful place to stroll—even when packed with tourists, there is a quiet and easygoing feel. A must-see is the shell-shaped square called Il Campo. This is the focal point of the city as well as being the venue for the internationally renowned horse race, the Palio.

Casole d'Elsa hosts one of the most charming museums of the many recently opened/restyled in Siena. The art exhibited ranges from the Neolithic era to the XVII century. A visit to the attached Collegiata di Casole is also highly recommended.

Colle Val d'Elsa's newer outskirts offer very few attractions, aside from the crystal manufacturing—but the old town/historical center, Colle Alta, deserves to be seen. Particularly interesting in Colle Alta is the Palazzo Campana, built in the XVI century by the architect Agnolo di Baccio d'Agnolo. This private building looks like a city gate, or a triumphal arch, and dominates the main street of Colle. The Cathedral shows a rich collection of paintings from the XVII century. Don't miss the dramatic and intense Nativity by Rutilio Manetti (fourth chapel on the right, looking to the main altar).
