Overview

Gaiole in Chianti House Rental Photos and Description

Totally secluded, stunning sunset views, self-contained studio, pets welcome

Podere Scopeto is a villa and a separate studio sleeping maximum 12. The house is high up on a hill at about 600m above sea level with outstanding views towards the sunset. It overlooks woods, vineyards and the medieval towns of Radda and Castellina. The nearest town is Gaiole (15 min) in the triangle of Siena, Florence and Arezzo. It is in the middle of the Gallo Nero classic wine region with Brolio, Castello Meleto, Coltibuono on your doorstep.

We have a large saltwater pool with spacious sun terraces and pergolas which offer our guests boyant relaxation, but for the more energetic there are miles of woods and hills to walk in beyond the 30 privately owned acres surrounding the house. It has a huge BBQ with enough chairs and tables to seat 24 comfortably on one of three terraces. More secluded hammocks and picnic places are dotted around the property under the shade of our olives and sweet chestnuts. We have reliable crystal clear water from our own well and faultless heating and plumbing system. 2 fireplaces cheer our winter visitors. From the main road you drive 2 and a half km through the woods on an un-tarmaced road which is not suitable for low-slung vehicles.

Details for Studio Studio, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

The studio has a large sitting room with table seating four and concrete kitchen table running the length of the south-facing window which slides open with traditional brick lattice screen and view of the green jungle-like woods, cosy in winter and cool in the hot summer months. The super-sized bed is on a balcony surrounded by brick shelves so that it becomes a cosy snuggly place filled with Indian cushions - a place to 'chill' day and night. Chinese screens close the walled cupboard. The bathroom has concrete shower floor with large shower-head and concrete table with Philippe Starck basin. Through the window you see the oval-shaped concrete table outside waiting for a large party of people to enjoy their meals shaded by an old chestnut tree with the olive grove beyond and the pool on a higher terrace. Play your favourite music resounding as in this mini concert hall and enjoy the wood-burning stove crackling in winter while you relax on winter evenings after a day exploring the area

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ciao Marina, we had a wonderful holiday, thank you! The weather hovered ner 30 degrees all week. The villa was perfect, and everybody had a super time. The EROICA was the toughest yet as we all suffered greatly in the heat. The 200 km took us 16 hours. As ever the scenery and hospitality made it worthwhile. Grazie!

This time in Scopeto - Diesmal in Scopeto

  • 5 of 5
Who is the One, seeking quietness instead of the hectic everyday life in office and also at home? This one really wants to sleep into the day without any disturbance and just live into the day, like it was in the old days. He really doesn‘t want to see nor hear of any strangers to disturb him. He just wants to pop up, when he likes it, and looks for his secret retreat, that no other one knows of.

That‘s like it is in Scopeto! If you want it, you can be in half an hour on the Campo in Siena or in some more than an hour to Florence, just by car. You got a wonderfull, undisturbed view high up in the mountains of the Chianti, a lovely pool and a fine house for the holidays of the year. There‘s enough room for the plenty of Your‘s, but also a place to retire from the busy world.

What is the price for it? The one, who likes it busy, will be at bore. The one, who wants an easy access, will curse the long and weary road. But the one, who is in the need to find Himself, he will come again and again.

Philipp from Leipzig

Wer ist es denn, der in seinem Urlaub Ruhe vor dem Alltag im Büro und seiner Hektik sucht? Dieser Zeitgenosse möchte endlich einmal ohne Störung ausschlafen und in den Tag hineinleben, wie es vor langer Zeit ganz normal war. Er möchte also weit und breit keinen fremden Menschen sehen oder hören. Er möchte nur dann ,Auftauchen‘, wenn es ihm gefällt. Und er möchte einen geheimen Rückzugsort für sich, den andere nicht kennen.

So ist es in Scopeto! Wer will, ist in einer halben Stunde in Siena auf dem Campo, in einer guten Stunde in Florenz, er hat eine wunderbare, unverbaubare Aussicht hoch in den Bergen des Chianti, Pool und ein schönes Ferienhaus mit kleinem Nebengebäude, Platz für viele - aber auch die geheime Abgeschiedenheit von der geschäftigen Welt.

Womit ist das erkauft? Wer es trubelig liebt, der wird sich langweilen! Wer den schnellen Zugang will, der wird den langen Weg verfluchen. Aber wer einmal diese Ruhe und das Finden seines Selbst wieder braucht, der kommt immer wieder.

Philipp aus Leipzig

Totale Enstpannung

  • 5 of 5
Immer wenn wir in Scopeto ankommen legt sich sofort eine wunderbare Entspannung auf uns, dieser Ort ist was ganz besonderes, das schöne Tal mit den grünen Kastanienwäldern, das geöffnete Tal und der Blick in die Ferne mit den sanft geschwungenen Hügeln, nicht zu vergessen die Ruhe, herrlich ! Das Anwesen liegt in verschiedene Terrassen und Ebenen eingebettet und bietet für jeden Anspruch, Gemeinschaft, Rückzug, Sonnen, Baden, Kochen u.v.m. .. ideale Voraussetzungen. Die Häuser sind mit viel Liebe und Geschmack sehr persönlich eingerichtet, was es von vielen Ferienhäusern positiv unterscheidet. Gerade für eine große Gruppe, Familie, Freunde ist wirklich genug Platz. Die große Küche mit Kochinsel, das gemütliche Wohnzimmer, die Morgen-, Mittag-, und Abendterrassen lassen einen abwechslungsreichen Tageslauf "mit der Sonne" in und um das Haus zu. Die "häuslichen" Dinge wie Wäsche, Sauberkeit, Praktikabilität, Funktionalität, aber auch die Tips und hilrfreichen Beschreibungen der Vermieterin Marina Baillie lassen nichts zu wünschen übrig, man fühlt sich sehr gut betreut.
Das vom Haus zu sehende kleine mittelalterliche Burgdorf Castagnoli ist sehenswert, feine Weinverkostung inkl.. Gaiole hat eine der typischten Restaurants, wie man sie sich herrlicher in der Toscana nicht vorstellen kann, ganz einfach, ganz regional, hier kocht die casalingha, man isst mit Polizisten, Bauarbeitern, englischen Expads, Familien, usw. und ist im Himmel ! Die weitere Umgebung mit den klassischen toscanischen Städten braucht man nicht weiter zu beschreiben, deshalb kommt man ja auch hierhin ! Montevarcchis Ipercoop ist ein Erlebnis für sich, nicht weniger der Prada Outlet (ja!). Und noch was; wir haben die Fahrt auf dem ziemlich langen Ziehweg immer als großen, sportlichen Spaß gesehen. Wir können das "Ferienhaus in den Bergen" nur wärmstens empfehlen !

Owner's Response: Im Herbst ist es so wunderschoen! Wir wissen, dass Sie gerne gut essen und gerne spazierengehen und das ist so besonders erholsam wenn es etwas nicht mehr so unglaublich heiss ist und die Weinberge sich in allen Farben in der goldenen Sonne spiegeln und die Oliven an den grau-gruenen Baeumen reifen. Vielen Dank fuer die netten Worte und wir hoffen, Sie kommen bald wieder.

Look at the map and imagine a point in the centre of a triangle Arezzo, Siena and Florence: three great Italian Renaissance cities, their treasures, markets, restaurants, spaces and events beckon guests from Podere Scopeto. Nearer at hand, the great houses of our area hold frequent concerts, the markets towns, gems like Radda, Volpaia, Castellina, Greve offer their summer fieste, wineries with thier world-famous labels invite you to sample their wine and new olive oil . Hikers, bicyclists and horse riders can make thier own way along the high level paths and rides of the Chianti hills savouring the pine scented breezes. As one of our guests said last year: 'We have been in paradise'.

Other Activities: wine tasting and gastronomy.
