LOVELY RESTORED ANCIENT HAY-BARN IN THE CHIANTI CLASSICO AREA

Gaiole in Chianti Barn Rental Photos and Description

Barn, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lovely restored ancient hay-barn in the very heart of the Chianti Classico area ( 2 kms from Gaiole in Chianti and 7 Kms from Radda in Chianti)

Stunning, overwhelming views over olive groves, wineyards and oak woods.

The structure, which was restored with great care overv a number of years, has been transformed by the present owners into an extremely charming and comfortable house.

The old and the new have been tastefully combined.

Internal furnishings are made up of period pieces. Old terracotta floor tiles extend through the house and wood beams and old terracotta tiles make up the ceilings of each room.

One of our guests once said that we have learned "HOW TO STOP THE TIME"

The villa consists of one large living room with fire place, open kitchen , large dining room and H/bathroom on the ground floor; two bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one with tub and shower and one with just shower)

on the first floor.

Each room has a super view over the valley

Large terraces all around with plenty of flowers where to enjoy your meals or have a drink at sunset admiring the red sun setting down over Radda.

Wonderful Chianti Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Erbolino is an idyllic retreat in the Chianti hills with a lovely view of Vertine, olive orchards, vineyards and Radda in the distance. Riccardo and Anna Maria were so very charming and helpful, taking time to describe the history of Erbolino, their renovation (really a reconstruction), their antiques and collectibles, places to visit, etc. Knowing their history added immensely to our enjoyment of Erbolino and we thank them for sharing it with us. They are both available as much as you need them, but not intrusive if you want to be left alone. The living area is extremely comfortable, as pictured, and a nice place to unwind after sightseeing, hiking, etc., with vino in hand. (We regret that the weather didn't allow us to make better use of the lovely large patio to watch the sunsets each evening.) We enjoy going to local shops/markets (try Macelleria Chini in Gaiole) for food and cooking dinner "at home" and found the kitchen to be well-equipped with pretty much everything you could possibly need. There is even a full-size refrigerator. Erbolino is conveniently located for taking the train from Montevarchi (for example, to Firenze) and Anna Maria gave us advice about where to park (very helpful!). Erbolino is perfect for a romantic getaway or for sightseeing for all age groups, however, anyone who has trouble climbing stairs should be aware that the bedrooms and full bathrooms are upstairs - but there is a handrail and there is a small bathroom downstairs. Wi-Fi is available; we had trouble picking it up downstairs, but upstairs was just fine. We would recommend Erbolino in a heartbeat and, in fact, we hope to return ourselves. You couldn't ask for more charming hosts than Anna Maria and Riccardo, nor a more idyllic place to stay.

A great Chianti experience

  • 5 of 5
As others have described, this property far exceeded expectations. The house is spectacular in both decor, conveniences and setting (the photos do not do justice to the gardens and flowers when they're in full bloom). We wish we had arranged to stay a full week so we could have continued to appreciate and explore all it and the region had to offer. The view from the multiple terraces was breathtaking, and included the Vertine Castle just down the road (with a great little restaurant), Radda in the distance, and lots of hiking or cycling as well. Each evening on the terrace was like watching a painting being created as the lighting changed over the incredible little valley below.

The proud owners, Riccardo and Anna-Maria, were always ready to help or advise on anything. A lovely couple with many stories to share; we truly enjoyed our conversations with them.

A memorable place from which to base your Chianti vacation!

Dream Tuscan Vacation with the Best Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
While I think our experience was similar to every review here, I just had to echo the sentiments. Renting in a foreign country can be a little daunting but from the start Anna Maria and Riccardo guided us through the details. And then we arrived at the vacation villa of our dreams. Our only regret was the short time we had to spend. This restored property is not to be missed! Not only for it's historic location but for the attention to architectual detail where building to take in the view at each moment, each season was considered. We visited right on the cusp of blossoming flowers of spring....just fantastic! Perfect location for daytime sightseeing. Anna Maria and Riccardo will get you going on your way with lots of reccomendations for where to go and what to do. Loved it all but especially sitting on the deck with a good local bottle of wine and charcuterie and local cheese watching the sunset....priceless. Priceless as well was the warm welcome and stories of the area, history of the place, family history of our hosts. We felt we were at home:) I almost did not want to talk about it lest we would not be able to come back because of the popularity. We loved every minute....planning on returning soon. XOXO we loved feeling we were part of Anna Maria's and Riccardo's family. We have reccomended it to numerous friends and family

Best Vacation We Have Ever Had!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot express the beauty of this Region. Vertine is breathtaking, peaceful, and picturesque. The Property is the best one I have ever rented and we frequent VRBO.com alot. When planning our trip to Italy we knew we wanted Chianti Region of Tuscany. Riccardo e Anna Maria were terrific hosts. They gave us a bountiful amount of information about the area, travelling, wineries, restaurants, and shopping. We travelled to Rome and Riccardo booked our B&B in a prime location of Rome and gave us extensive instructions on sites to see and places to go. Pisa, Siena, and a number of smaller towns in Chianti were also visited. We arrived as guests but we will never forget the chats in the evening over a drop of wine on the terrace, the sunsets, the birds, the workers in the vineyards. This is the place you should stay, it has everything you need, and two people who love what they do, their home, their property, their family, friends and guests that grace their doorstep. There wasn't enough time for us to learn, see and do all that we desired. We will be returning. Thank you Riccardo e Anna Maria!!!!
