Gaiole in Chianti House Rental Photos and Description

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

Podere Scopeto is a farmhouse villa with a main building and a separate self-contained studio sleeping max 12. From the main road you drive 2 and a half km through the woods on an un-tarmaced road which is not suitable for camper vans or 7-seater low-slung people-carriers but fine for normal cars driven slowly. The house is high up on a hill at about 600 m above sea level with outstanding views towards the west overlooking the classic chianti woods and vineyards in the area of Gaiole (15 min) in triangle Siena, Florence and Arezzo. It is in the middle of the classic supertuscan producing wineries like Brolio, Castello Meleto, Coltibuono with horizon view of Radda and Castellina. 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. Huge BBQ with enough chairs and tables to seat 24 comfortably on one of three terraces, more secluded hammocks and picnic places under the shade of our olives and sweet chestnuts. Reliable crystal clear water from our own well and faultless heating and plumbing system newly installed. 2 fireplaces cheer our winter visitors.

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

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.
