Capanna di Camporata is a fantastic Chianti cottage located within walking distance to the town Gaiole in Chianti in the heart of Tuscany. This Tuscan villa has been lovingly restored to a high standard with plenty of care also put into the garden and terraces.
Outside the cottage is a large covered, furnished terrace which looks down onto the small, sunken pre-fabricated pool which is surrounded by a pretty, stone paved sun deck. Next to the pool is a second furnished terrace. The entire garden is well maintained with lovely lawns and pretty local plants and shrubs.
Inside the Tuscan villa is a large open plan room with a fireplace in one corner. Around this are two comfortable armchairs, making it a perfect place to relax during the cooler Spring and Autumn evenings. The room is cool in the Summer and warm in winter due to the high, typical Tuscan chestnut wood and terracotta ceiling.
To one side of the room is a wooden dining table with four chairs, while the kitchen unit is along two walls providing plenty of work space. It is a fully equipped kitchen and includes an oven, gas hobs and a small fridge with internal freezer compartment and a built-in microwave oven. This open plan room has plenty of light from the two glass doors, one providing access to the loggia and the other to the parking area.
To one side is access to the attractive bathroom with shower and the romantic double bedroom. The bedroom is decorated in shades of white which makes it a bright room enhancing the beauty of the terracotta paved floor. Against one wall is a built in triple wardrobe with shelving and hanging space. Also in the room is a small bookcase with several books.
There is a neighbouring villa which is protected from view from the garden by hedges and trees.
This traditional Tuscan cottage has no central heating. Heating for the cooler seasons is provided by the wood burning fireplace insert with hot air circulation and  by electrical radiators.

Pool Info

The pool is situated in the lovely garden, just below the covered terrace. There are steps down from the terrace to the large stone paved sun deck that surrounds the pool. To one side are a couple of sunbeds and an umbrella, providing a lovely spot to relax while enjoying the peace of the Chianti hills that surround this little Tuscan villa.
To one side of the pool is a second terrace furnished with a table and chairs, this is a sunny terrace. The pool is a sunken, prefabricated pool with metal steps to enter. It is 3.5x6.5 metres and 1.2 metres deep, it's open from mid-May to mid-October weather permitting.

Pros Wir haben unseren 3wöchigen Urlaub in Capanna di Camporata verbracht und uns selten so wohlgefühlt, wie hier. Das kleine, romantische Domizil ließ keine Wünsche offen, angefangen von der Einrichtung, der tollen Lage (in 5 Minuten zu Fuß im Ort), der herrlichen Umgebung, der Sauberkeit und der wunderbaren Rachel, die uns bereits bei Ankunft mit wohligem Kaminfeuer willkommen hieß. Ein Highlight war auch der Salzwasserpool im sehr gepflegten, vollständig eingezäunten Garten. Im Ort selbst bekommt man alles, Lebensmittel, Brot und Fleisch, welches wir uns auf dem Barbecue-Grill selbst zubereiteten. Die Restaurants der Umgebung sind alle empfehlenswert, das La Contrade und das Papavero haben uns besonders begeistert. Die Bewohner Gaioles waren uns gegenüber von einer Liebenswürdigkeit, die ihresgleichen sucht, allen voran Rachel, unsere charmante und unglaublich hilfsbereite Hausbesitzerin, die wir sofort ins Herz geschlossen haben. Wir sind schweren Herzens wieder abgereist, es war ein herrlicher Urlaub, danke für alles! Hervorheben möchten wir auch die hervorragende Abwicklung unserer Reise durch ToToskany.
Auch dafür unser herzliches Dankeschön! Heidi und Dieter
Cons Alles, aber auch alles war super!

Pros Everything about the villa and location was perfect, the locals were welcoming and friendly. Rachel was the perfect host offering advice on where to go during our stay. Highly recommend the Italian train service to visit the major cities such as Florence, Rome and Pisa. We also loved the wine tasting at the local vineyard and we can't wait to return.
Local attractions Florence, Pisa, Rome, Siena, The Cantalici vineyard, San Gimignano, Gaiole and the Tuscan hills.

Pros geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr schöner Außenbereich, nette Lage an der (wenig befahrene Straße stört wirklich nicht!), gutes Restaurant oder gemütliche Trattoria sind fußläufig in jeweils ca. 10 Min. erreichbar, guter Ausgangspunkt für viele schöne Wanderungen oder, um Ausflüge in Städte zu machen (Florenz, Siena, Arrezo ....) und das Beste: Rachel (die Vermieterin vor Ort) - hält sich diskret im Hitergrund, ist super nett und hat viele Tips parat.
Local attractions Wanderungen (einigermaßen brauchbare Karte gibt es in der Touri-Info in Gaiole); Florenz (unbedingt 2 Tage einplanen und Rachels Empfehlung folgend bequem mit dem Zug hinfahren); den Dom in Siena nicht auslassen!!!; nicht unbedingt nur das Michelin-Sternchen-Restaurant auf der anderen Straßenseite sondern unbedingt auch das Ristaurante / Pizzaria gegenüber des Parkplatzes in Gaiole heimsuchen!

Pros Das Haus für zwei Personen (auch Hund ist willkommen), ist mit viel Komfort und Liebe ausgestattet und besonders schön ist der Außenbereich mit einem sehr sauberen Pool sowie Barbeque mit Grill- und einer weiteren Terrasse. Auch an die passende Beleuchtung ist gedacht worden. Das kleine Ort Gaiole, mit seinen vielen Spezialitäten-Geschäften, ist zu Fuß in nur 10 Minuten zu erreichen und wer möchte kann dort "Dolce Vita" erleben. Es gibt mehrere Restaurants und auch im Umkreis von wenigen Kilometern ist einiges an Lokalitäten zu entdecken. Viele schöne Burganlagen laden ganz in der Nähe zum staunen und verweilen ein. Besonders zu empfehlen ist die Stadt Siena - mit seinen vielen einmaligen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Das Klima ist auch im Oktober mild, abends kühlt es angenehm ab. Die vielen Olivenhänge und Wein- Anbaugebiete sind Natur pur! Frau Rachel die Hauseigentümerin ist sehrffeundlich und bemüht und schaut regelmäßig vorbei. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt - und Fernweh kommt auf.
Local attractions Siena, Castelina, Florenz, Monteriggioni, Brolio, u.v.m.

Pros Günstige Lage. Einkauf Möglichkeiten sind zu Fuß gut zu erreichen.
Ruhige Lage, schöner Swimmingpool, toller Erholungswert.
Cons Außer den Moskitos gibt es nichts negatives. Wichtig, immer Abwehrmittel dabei haben.
Local attractions Unsere Lieblings Pizzeria gegenüber am Hang war das Eldorado. Zu empfehlen sind: Siena, San Gimignano, Radda, Brolio Castello. Das Weingut Colle Bereto in Radda bietet leckeres Olivenöl und Weine.

Pros Es ist alles da, was man braucht. Das Häuschen hat eine gute Lage und es ist alles schön und sehr gepflegt. Der Umschwung ist super schön angelegt. Unsere Hunde waren genau so willkommen wie wir. Die Besitzerin ist super nett und war immer sofort zur Stelle, wenn man sie gebraucht hat. Wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder da Urlaub machen.
Cons Das einzige was uns wirklich genervt hat, waren die Bremsen. Die waren wohl die Woche vor unserer Ankunft noch nicht da. Sie haben genau auf uns gewartet. Ansonsten können wir nichts negatives sagen.
Local attractions Im Ort selber waren wir oft in der Osteria al Ponte. Das Essen ist phantastisch und die Bedienung super angenehm und nett. In Madonna a Brolio waren wir in der Osteria del Castello. Die ist auch sehr zu empfehlen. Essen und Bedienung top!

Pros Prachtig huis met uitstekende voorzieningen, ligging vrij en rustig. De service en discrete vriendelijkheid van Rachel is fabuleus; prima centrale ligging in de Chiantistreek. Tuin, terras en zwembad zijn super . . .
Cons Geen opmerkingen; naast gelegen weg en vakantiehuis met zwembad wél dichtbij maar verder geen probleem; waren wel blij met eigen luchtbed voor in het zwembad én klamboe voor mugvrije nachten (tip)
Local attractions Leuke uitstapjes naar Siena, San Gimignano (auto) en naar Florence met de trein (vanuit Montevarchi). Aangename verrassing was gratis open luchtconcert op marktplein van dorpje door conservatoriumstudenten uit Siena. (tip van onze attente Rachel). Vooral veel genoten van de zon, zwembad, natuur incl. herten, reeën, wilde zwijnen en vossen.

Pros Capanna di Camporata was an amazing place to stay. It was very comfortable and romantic. Rachel was a very lovely hostess and helpful but not intrusive. We usually stay in hotels when travelling to Tuscany but I can honestly say we will be returning back to this villa.
Cons Mosquito's but you can hardly blame the villa or the owners for that !
Local attractions Il Papavero in Barbischio - amazing food. Castello di Spaltenna in Gaiole for a special meal.

Pros Das Ferienhaus war geradezu perfekt, für 2 Personen hervorragend geeignet. Sehr schöne Lage, trotz der Strasse, welche recht nah am Haus vorbeiführt (diese ist aber nicht sehr stark befahren). Der Garten ist mit sehr viele Liebe angelegt und der Pool hat uns an den heißen Tagen eine Menge Badespaß bereitet.
Local attractions Die Städte Siena und Arezzo sind mit dem Auto sehr gut erreichbar. Nach Florenz sind wir von Montevarchi aus mit dem Zug gefahren. Die Zugfahrt dauert ca. 1 Stunde, erspart einem aber die aufwendige Parkplatzsuche in Florenz.

Pros Everything for your stay has been provided, all fresh and new, the proximity to the village was good and within walking distance. The grounds with their different levels following the sun/shade throughout the day also the well stocked herb gardens was a bonus. The overall experience was excellent along with Rachels advice and knowledge.
Local attractions The go go bar in the village which provides hot food until 01.00 which is good for late arrivals. Ristorante Carloni for great food and prices, frequented by the locals, Ristorante Le Contrade which is up the hill from the villa, excellent food, the pizza resturant downstairs is fun on a Friday night. The little coffee shops and eateries in the village are a delight to eat in.

Pros Lovely villa, beautifully furnished. The garden was well thought out with a herb garden and different seating areas. We enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace under the verandah. Would definitely recommend this villa.
Cons Maybe a little close to the road, but fortunately it is a very quiet road, so not too much of an issue.
Local attractions Ideally situated to walk into the nearby town, which had a restaurant and a small supermarket. There was also a great restaurant on top of the hill opposite.

Pros Lovely well looked after villa and pool, perfect for the two of us. Brilliant location to tour Tuscany's beautiful countryside. Quiet surroundings, could hardly hear the karaoke on the Friday (from the Ristorante at the top of the nearby hill). Our stay was perfect, would visit again.
Cons Pool was a bit cold, but we did visit in October so to be expected I guess. Bit close to the road, but there isn't much traffic anyway.
Local attractions The ristorante at the top of the nearby hill was lovely. The nearby town is only a 10 minute walk away with a small Coop market
