Overview

About the property

The Glicine apartment is surrounded by vineyards, with a large garden, swimming pool and an enchanting panorama that stretches from the Po valley to the mountain range of the Alps. A country residence that allows its guests to enjoy all the tranquility and relaxation that this place offers.

Located in the first hill of the Oltrepo 'Pavese in Santa Maria della Versa, in the province of Pavia. Its geographical position allows us to visit Milan, Pavia, Genoa or the Ligurian Sea in a day.

The alternation of the colors of the seasons and the sweetness of the landscape that preserves art, history and culture, come together to create the typical aspects of the Oltrepo 'countryside, today defined by many as the new Tuscany. This land, which winds between Piedmont and Emilia, is pleasantly discovered for the variety and charm of its hills, its wooded mountain areas, its castles and abbeys, and for its excellent wines.

Starting point for scenic walks and ideal cycling territory, in the endless roads that climb the Apennines Pavese.

For your stay in VILLA GAIA ITALIA, according to your needs, you can choose between two apartments,

obtained in the ancient 1800 watchtower. Renovated house keeping the original features, with stone walls, exposed beams, ceilings in terracotta and wood.

We organize visits to the cellars with tasting of wines and local products.

We make bread, focaccia and homemade pasta.

T-shirts are painted for children.

Perfect home base in Lombardy countryside

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent 5 nights at Villa Gaia in mid-October of 2016.

With wonderful hosts, Louisa and Guido, this was our comfortable home base for exploring Lombardy and Piedmont. Our entire two week Italian trip was wonderful, but the highlights from this beginning are likely the ones we will remember the longest.

Since it was after peak season, we were the only guests and stayed in the top floor of the house: beds for 6 people in 3 bedrooms, a large bathroom with shower, a kitchen/eating area with a gas cook-top and fridge, and an adjacent "living room" with couch and chair. Free wi-fi was available and reliable.

The location is about a 5 minute drive up in the hills above the small town of Santa Maria della Versa. A car is required.

Louisa speaks very good English and was extremely helpful in arranging several visits for us including old-world craft wineries, a bee-keeping vineyard, an amazing 5 course meal on a goat farm, and a perfect evening of homemade pasta with local friends and relatives in her dining room.

From our experience, I cannot praise Villa Gaia and its owners too highly. Lombardy turned out to be the perfect region of Italy to start our trip and Villa Gaia was the perfect place for us to stay.

Mooi appartement, prachtig uitzicht, erg hartelijke en gezellige mensen!

  • 4 of 5

We hebben met zijn 5en mooie dagen gehad. Mooi typisch Italiaans huis. Binnen lekker koel. Ook mooi dat er horren tegen de muggen zijn aangebracht. Ruime kamers en bedden, beddengoed en handdoeken inbegrepen. Prive terras eas wel erg klein en einde dag wad daar geen schaduw meer. Enige puntje dat ee hebben op te merken. Luisa nodigt iedereen uit voor een Italiaanse avons met pasta maken en opeten. Familie van haar erbij en andere gasten. Was erg leuk en dus aan te raden.

tolle Ausgangsbasis für Urlaub in der Lombardei und im Piemont

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage der Villa Gaia erlaubt Tagesausflüge nach Mailand, Turin, Asti, Alba, Barolo, Pavia (Fahrzeit 1-2h) uvm. Auch die nähere Umgebung bietet einige, vom Tourismus noch "verschonte" Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Unsere FeWo Glicine war eine von zwei in der Villa Gaia gelegenen Wohnungen. Die geräumige, saubere und gut ausgestattete Wohnung mit drei Schlafzimmern und zwei Bädern hat war für unsere Zwecke (3-Generationen-Familienurlaub) ideal.

Der Garten ist kreativ gestaltet, mit eigenem Pavillon und Liegebereich für die jeweiligen Wohnungen. Der Pool war für uns voll ausreichend, machte aber einen eher provisorischen Eindruck. Perfekt für Entspannung nach einem Ausflug, für uns aber weniger geeignet, um einen oder mehrere komplette Tage in der Fewo zu verbringen. Mückenmittel ist empfehlenswert.

Durch die Tipps und Infos der freundlichen Gastgeberin Luisa (Ausflüge, Restaurants, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Arzt....) findet man sich schnell in der Umgebung zurecht. Ein Highlight war das gemeinsame Pasta-Kochen! Herzlichen Dank Luisa für die Gastfreundschaft!

Uitstekend

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf in casa vacanze Gaia was uitstekend, mede dankzij de ontzettend vriendelijke en gastvrije familie, het geweldig huis en de geweldige tuin. De kinderen vonden het ook fantastisch. In de omgeving is er genoeg te zien en te doen en andere toeristen zie je nauwelijks in dit relatief onbekende gedeelte van noord Italië. Een aanrader!

excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at casa vacanza gaia has been great. Such a nice family, such a nice house and garden. Lots of things to see in the surrounding area and hardly any other tourists in this little known part of Italy. Perfect getaway!
