About Ilaria Lais

The villa belongs to the same family since 1976. Our kids and grandchildren have spent their holidays here. We have decorated it with love in a traditional Tuscan style it during this time and maintained it to a high standard. We hope you will love our house as much as we do.

Ilaria Lais purchased this villa in 1976

Why Ilaria Lais chose Gaiole In Chianti

The house was built at the beginning of last century by the Ricasoli family, the largest landowners in Chianti, for the farmers who worked their land.

The large paved area between the house and the barn was the farmyard and you can still see the ancient bread oven at the entrance of the house.

The garden has a beautiful oak tree under which you can enjoy the breeze and the view of the ancient castle of Meleto.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect for large groups, the house will comfortably accommodates two or even three families with children.

San Piero Terre is ideally located for the famous Eroica, the challenging cycling race reserved for vintage cycles that takes place every October. The villa is only a few hundred meters from the starting line and the information centre. We can provide our guests with basic cycle maintenance kit.

Great family home in Tuscany Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights with our family and had the best vacation. We visited in late September so the weather was mild. The home is well appointed and the agency very professional. Gaiole is one of the quaintest little villages, offering great food at reasonable prices. The house is walking distance to town and is only 30 minutes from Siena, which has amazing shopping. It's the perfect location in Tuscany and the views are stunning. The pictures are exactly how it looks in person, actually it was picture perfect. The only items to note is that the house is off the 408. There are no real addresses, the name is actually the driveway name which is well marked. It makes sense once you are there. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

What a stunningly beautiful place! Us and friends (12 altogether) stayed here for a week in July 2016. I selected this place without input from my friends and so was really pleased when my friends were astounded by how beautiful it was. The house had so much space (much bigger than it looks in the photos), very comfortable bedrooms and so many great social family areas to relax in. It had the perfect farmhouse kitchen for a large group! We had other friends for dinner one night and comfortably cooked in the lovely kitchen and ate outdoors - all 22 of us! The outdoor area is gorgeous, pool immaculate and views superb. You have both of best worlds here as although we visited in the busy tourist season and were only a few minutes walk from Gaiole in Chianti, the location and house was so quiet and peaceful there. We had excellent communication with the owner and great local support for any questions we had while we were there. The only regret was that we did not stay longer! We all agreed we should have stayed for at least 2 weeks minimum! Thanks so much for letting us stay in this lovely family home!!
