Pros Das Haus ist wunderschön und sehr gepflegt. Der Pool ist ein Traum und es gibt mehrere schöne Sitzplätze draußen und drinnen. Man merkt, dass alles an dem Haus mit viel Liebe gestaltet worden ist. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut, es gibt wirklich alles was man braucht, vor allem in der Küche. Wer eine Waschmaschine vermisst, findet direkt am Ortsanfang, also ganz nah zum Haus, einen Waschsalon mit selfservice. Das Haus liegt wunderschön zwischen Wald, Weinbergen und Olivenhainen und man ist völlig ungestört, geht aber trotzdem nur 3 Minuten zu Fuß ins Dorf, wo man alles bekommt, was man zum Leben in dem Haus braucht. Der Besitzer Herr Maestrini ist ein sehr liebenswerter und freundlicher Mann, der sehr hilfsbereit ist und dafür gesorgt hat, dass wir uns in seinem Haus sehr wohl fühlen! Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!
Cons Es gibt wirklich nichts an dem Haus zu kritisieren. Für das Chianti-Gebiet gilt generell: ohne Auto kann man nicht anreisen, man braucht guten Mückenschutz und im September abends auch warme Kleidung.
Local attractions Man kann alle schönen Ziele wie Florenz, Siena oder San Gimignano in weniger als einer Fahrstunde erreichen. Bis zum Meer sind es 1,5 Stunden. Abends kann man gut in Radda in Chianti essen, das ca 10 Minuten entfernt ist. Aber auch in Gaiole selbst hat man fußläufig ein paar nette kleine Lokale/Restaurants, Geschäfte, Lenensmitelläden und eine Eisdiele. Das Castello Brolio ist ca 15 Min entfernt und eines der schönsten Schlösser der Region. Shoppen kann man gut in Siena, Florenz oder dem Valdichiana Outlet, das ca 1 Stunde entfernt ist.
