Location: Castellare in Chianti

Castellare in Chianti is a lovely hamlet in the Tuscan hills near Gaiole in Chianti. It is recently restored with care and to a good standard. There are three buildings which house 9 individual villas, the reception and the custodian's villa.


The large pool is located down a few steps immediately next to the buildings, it's surrounded by a wooden fence with three gates. A pretty pine forest bordering the pool area provides shade.

This wonderful Tuscan hamlet is well positioned in the Chianti hills above Gaiole and about 3.5km from a little village where there is a restaurant. It's surrounded by a cooling forest which keeps it fresh during the hot Tuscan days.
All the individual eating areas are open to the hamlet grounds which makes this the ideal property for those who seek contact with other guests. There is also a quiet road which passes the hamlet, however occasional traffic can be heard.

Pets are allowed at Castellare in Chianti however must remain on a leash in the communal grounds. At the property there is a fenced area especially for pets where they can be let lose to run around.

Pool Info


The pool is full fenced with a wooden fence and netting with three gates for entry. It is located to one side of the hamlet buildings and is overlooked by the cottage and three of the apartments. To one side it is protected by a lovely pine forest which also provides some shade for parts of the day.

Pros Sehr liebevolles Umfeld mit blühenden Blumen und Kräutern. Schöner sauberer Pool. Schön restauriertes Steinhaus mit lieblichem Himmelbett.
Sehr ruhig, die Vögel und Insekten sind beinahe die einzigen Geräusche, da es zurückversetzt von einer eh schon wenig befahrenen Straße mitten in den BErgen liegt.
Großer Kühlschrank mit separatem GEfrierfach ist prima!
Cons Die Küchenausstattung könnte etwas ausgefeilter sein: Es gibt nur Steakmesser, keine weiteren Küchenmesser/Brotmesser, etc., kein Schneebesen. Und es fehlt auch ein Rührgerät/Mixer. Kuchen backen ist somit schwer. Wer Schwierigkeiten mit Serpentinen hat oder Kidenr, die das im Auto nicht abkönnen, dem würde ich das nicht empfehlen, da jeder Ausflug erst Serpentinenfahrten bedeutet.

Pros Maggiorana has a full kitchen which, having dealt with very scary 2 burner hobs in the past, is fantastic. Well equiped and lots of room to move and prepare with a full sized refrigerator. Bedroom was lovely with a comfortable bed and excellent linen. Good living space as well and comfortable seating (this is not always the case so it is a big plus).
Cons There was a constant slight aroma of drains in the bathroom and wc, which became quite strong throughout following rain. The shower cubicle (with shower curtain) was unpleasant although the shower itself was good.
Local attractions The Osteria al Ponte in Gaiole was lovely and probably the best pasta I've ever eaten.

Pros De prachtige omgeving van de Borgo: veel bloemen (midden in juli), vlinders en kruiden/fruit in de tuin. Goed bereikbare beheerder, goed onderhouden, heerlijk zwembad, zeer prettig verblijf!
Huisje zelf veel privacy, prachtige tuin, ook veel bloemen, altijd ergens schaduw en koel huisje door dikke muren.
Cons Eigenlijk niets: de foto's hadden goed en compleet beeld geschetst. Enige kanttekening is dat wij reisden met kind van 1 jaar oud: er waren wat veel trapjes, die hij erg leuk vond, maar waardoor wij erg goed op moesten letten. Traphekje ontbreekt (maar was de beheerder zelf ook al opgevallen).
Local attractions Gaiole in Chianti is lief, rustig plaatsje waar je goed kan koffie drinken en hapje kan eten op het centrale plein. Het gehele Chianti gebied is prachtig; overal heerlijke dorpjes, prachtige uitzichten en heerlijke wijn. Mooi wijnhuis met goede wijnen vlakbij Castellare in dorpje Castagnole. Hier is ook een restaurant. Castello di Brolio is een mooi oud kasteel (en wijnhuis) waar de Chianti Classico is ontstaan. Siena is een heerlijke stad!
