Clean, comfortable and perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

Let me just say that the villa is amazing! The distribution of the house is perfect for big groups! We were 3 families all with kids and each family had 2 big bedrooms! It couldn't be better. Each unit has total privacy and independence. In the afternoons and evenings the whole group hung up in the inviting common areas,each one with fireplace,where we enjoyed amazing dinners and games. The pool area was amazing especially if you have little kids. As you open the windows in the morning the views and the fresh air are just incredible! Gaia was super attentive since the beginning of the booking process,she also arranged for a local chef (Saba) to come cook for us at the house twice, and each time her cooking was exceptional - using some fresh ingredients from the property's own gardens! Thank you so much Gaia for sharing your beautiful estate with us! it will be forever in our memories.

Magical vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky when we found this home to rent for our Tuscan Holiday! Gaia, the owner was absolutely wonderful to work with and really made us feel at ease knowing that everything would be taken care of and the home would be lovely. The pictures just can't do the house justice as it is absolutely stunning! Each room and bathroom has the up most attention to detail. The beds are very comfortable and the home is well stocked with everything you need.

The house is on the property of a working farm and it was was fun to be able to see the horses, donkey, chickens, geese and ducks every day (although they are also well hidden if you don't want to encounter the animals as the property is huge). Each morning we had fresh farm eggs from the chickens!

I can't say enough great things about this home. I am really looking forward to when we can return. A few things to note- in order to get to the house the home is on a dirt road so it is helpful (although not necessary) to have a car that is better suited for that. the kitchen was well stocked and really fun to cook in - it took me a little while to figure out that the oven timer needs to be on before you can set the temperature and baking style :)

This was a great experience and I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Superb house, Tuscan spirit and refinement

  • 5 of 5

You arrive at the gate of this little Tuscan paradise after 200 m of dirt road. 2 beautiful stone houses, distant of about 500m are integrated into the beautiful countryside overlooked by the pretty village of Castiglione d'Orcia. The house is a mix of modernity, as very comfortable and very well equipped, and ancient materials. Everything is beautiful and made to feel that you are good, while respecting the Tuscan spirit. The black marble pool is a huge asset as we experienced the heat of the summer days. Animals domain (chickens, geese, ducks, donkeys, horses) were a joy for our children and ourselves, and the peaople who were taking care of the place were really nice to us. You'll find a small supermarket in the village, and everything needed 10 minutes by car. On the advice of Gaia, the owner, we also had the chance to have a home cooking class with Saba, the queen of pasta. Excellent evening, and a treat!

The holiday was perfect in this beautiful property, we hope to return one day!

Au bout de 200 m de route de terre, vous arrivez au portail de ce petit paradis toscan. 2 superbes maisons de pierre, éloignées d'environ 500m sont intégrées au splendide paysage de campagne surplombé par le trè joli village de Castiglione d'Orcia. La maison est un mélange de modernité, car très confortable et très bien équipée, et de matériaux anciens. Tout est beau et fait pour que vous vous y sentiez bien, dans le respect de l'esprit toscan. La piscine de marbre noir est un immense atout étant donné la chaleur des journées d'été. Les animaux du domaine (poules, oies, canards, âne, chevaux) ont été un vrai bonheur pour nos enfants et nous-mêmes. Les personnes qui entretiennent le domaine ont été adorables. Petit supermarché au village, et tout le nécessaire à 10 min en voiture. Sur les conseils de Gaia, propriétaire des lieux, nous avons aussi eu la chance d'avoir un cours de cuisine à domicile avec Saba, la reine des pâtes. Excellent moment, et un régal !

Nos vacances ont été parfaites dans cette magnifique propriété, nous espérons y retourner un jour !

Belle maison, avec une âme. À vivre !

  • 5 of 5

La villa de Gaia est simplement splendide. Décorée avec goût, lumineuse, pratique, elle a une vue magnifique sur une coline d'une Val d'Orcia. Au milieu de la nature, le jardin est ombragé, les deux terrasses permettent de varier les lieux de diner et déjeuner, et les chevaux, ânes, oies sont une belle attraction pour les enfants. La villa a une situation idéale pour visiter le Val d'Orcia, et Sienne un peu plus loin. Nous ne rêvons que de revenir ! Rares sont les lieux qui transcendent même les photos qu'on a pu en faire !!! Enfin, Gaia est joignable très facilement, sympathique et à l'écoute. Bravo !
