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.

Pros Sehr schöne ruhige Lage, gepflegte Anlage, toller Empfang am ersten Abend.
Cons Das Geschirr war nicht richtig sauber (aber dafür können ja eher die Urlauber vor uns was !) Ansonsten war alles andere sehr sauber und schön hergerichtet.
Local attractions Los Banditos (?) in Castagnoli ist sehr zu empfehlen, wir waren leider erst am letzten Abend dort. Gutes Essen und tolle Aussicht. Radda in Chianti, Siena

Pros Nous avons aimé la tranquillité, (nous étions les seuls invités presque la majorité du temps) nous avons aimé le site enchanteur, l’accueil de notre hôte, Tania, sa discrétion, nous avons aimé le cahier à l'accueil qui nous informe des places à visiter, des restaurants... des règles, comme par exemple de nous aviser que nous ne pouvons boire l'eau mais pour cuire c'est OK.
Nous avons aimé la proximité des sites que nous voulions visiter...souvent, ça nous prenait 1h30 pour se rendre, comme c'est assez central comme place le Castellare: par exemple: Sienne, San Gimignano, Monterregionni, Florence, Arrezzo, même Pise est pas loin...C'est ce que nous recherchions, une place où s'installer et rayonner aux alentours...
Je tenais vraiment à vous souligner que nous avons beaucoup aimé le site, apprécié grandement notre hôte, Tania...
Cons S"il faut absolument noter un inconvénient, c'est l'eau chaude, pour la douche, qui est moins confortable, mais vraiment...c'est pas un grand inconvénient...
Local attractions Dégustation de vin au Chianti, à proximité (3 ou 4 km), nous avons apprécié avoir une gratuité pour déguster, et la visite nous a beaucoup plu. Nous avons aussi mangé au restaurant Bandito, bon repas, Nous avons mangé au restaurant Pizza... (je ne me souviens plus du nom exact, en face du stationnement dans Gaiole) Nous avons apprécié la Coop de Montevarchi, beaucoup de choix. C'est sûr que la coop de Gaiole est petite, nous a dépanné... Nous avons apprécié l'information touristique à proximité.

Pros Het geheel beantwoordde geheel aan de verwachting zoals weergegeven op de site (omschrijving en foto's), Prachtige omgeving (wel wat afgelegen, maar daardoor ook heerlijk rustig), mooie huisjes met prachtige onderhouden tuin en zwembad. Zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame lokatiemanager (Tania) en eigenaar die ons en de andere gasten in het weekend verraste met een heerlijke maaltijd (pizza's, salade etc. geweldig!)
Cons niets
Local attractions In de omgeving zijn diverse goede restaurants, waaronder. Le Contrade en Meleto, beide in Gaiole, beide uitstekende restaurants, en wat verder circa 23 km, maar meer de moeite van het bezoeken waard, een authentieke Osteria "De Refuge Osteria del Chianti, Badia Montemuro in Radda in Chianti", eenvoudige maar heerlijke maaltijden.

Pros Wir wurden mit einem unvergesslichen Willkommensessen empfangen, was nach der langen Fahrt genau das Richtige war. Dadurch konnte man auf ungezwungende Art und Weise Kontakt zu den übrigen Gästen knüpfen. Die große Anlage bietete viele Rückzugsmöglichkeiten (mehrere Hängematten im Wald oder Sitzgruppen) um sich bestmöglich zu entspannen. Die Gastgeber waren alle sehr freundlich. Die Anlage entspricht den Fotos. Die Küche war doch besser ausgestattet als erwartet. Geschirr, Töpfe, Pfanne, Toaster, Espressomaschine, Salz, Pfeffer und Zucker waren vorhanden. Mitbringen sollte man u.a. Spülmittel, Spüllappen und Toilettenpapier. Wir hatten keinen Adapter für die Steckdose dabei, bekamen dann von Tanja einen ausgeliehen. Alles in Allem eine wunderschöne Anlage!
Cons Es liegt doch sehr abgelegen. Die Wege zur nächsten Einkaufsmöglichkeit oder den Sehenswürdigkeiten dauern aufgrund der Lage auf einem Berggipfel und der damit verbundenen Serpentinen und Steigungen länger als erwartet.
