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.

The entire area has a lovely English lawn which has several sun-beds. There are traditional metal steps into the pool.
The pool is 12x6 metres and 0.8-2.10 metres deep. It's open from May to October.

Pros Leuk complex, ruimte vakantiewoning, heerlijk zwembad en mooie tuin. De pizza party op zaterdag was fantastisch en een leuke verrassing! De omgeving van Castellare is prachtig maar je hebt wel een auto nodig (ook als je brood wilt halen 's morgens). Ruime slaapkamer en goed bed.
Cons - Het terras is erg klein - Vers brood halen moet in Gaiole (15 minuten rijden) want het winkeltje op 3 km verkoopt oud brood - Het huisje heeft geen airco dus daarom zetten wij alle ramen open, dan heb je wel last van de sproeiers die best veel herrie maken en soms van andere gasten
Local attractions Kasteel Brolio Arrezzo Siena (maar wel erg toeristisch) Radda in Chianti Greve in Chianti Officina della Bistecca in Panzano Coop in Radda (niet in Gailole)

Pros The place was very peaceful and quite. We went at a time when we were the only ones in the complex. The place was clean and included all the amenities you would expect to need for a one-week stay. You can even arrange for a starter package full of basic food and other items you may need in the beginning of your stay.
Cons The location was 9 km up the mountain. So, to get from the main road to the place or vice versa, you have to do some driving. Other than that, the place was exactly what we were looking for.
Local attractions We enjoyed Rada very much and ended up going three times during our stay. We also enjoyed Pasano especially on a Sunday morning during their open air market. Of course Siena was our favorite spot. We were there at least three times for dinner at El Cecco restaurant.

Pros Es war sehr sauber, die Einrichtung war geschmacksvoll und sehr schön eingerichtet.
Am Samstag gab es für alle Gäste ein Begrüßungsdiner.Wir haben uns Alle bei gutem Essen,gutem Wein und guter Laune kennengelernt.
Sehr schöne und ruhige Lage.
Cons Die Küche hatte ein sehr kleines Fenster, so dass es bei schlechtem Wetter ziemlich dunkel war, wenn die Eingangstür geschlossen sein musste.

Pros Die Umgebung ist ruhig und sehr schön, die Appartments haben was man braucht und alles war eingentlich neu und hat funktioniert. Der Pool war sauber und gut in Schuss.
Die Verwalterin ist sehr zuvorkommend, hilfsbereit und nett.
Der Anfahrtsweg ist gut zu finden und es gibt keine Naturstrasse.
Cons Leider haben wir in der Umgebung kein gutes Ristorante gefunden. Das Essen auswärts war dürftig.

Pros Eine tolle Ferienwohnung in einem kleinen komplex anderer Wohnungen ca 9km von Gaiole im Chianti entfernt. Der Komplex liegt sehr abgeschieden und äußert ruhig, die Wohnung befindet sich in einem ausgezeichneten Zustand. Ausstattung ließ nichts zu wünschen übrig, Küche mit allem notwendigen, Außenanlagen mit Pool, Tischtennisplatte, kleinem Kinderspielplatz. Die Gastgeber veranstalteten während unseres Aufenthalts zwei mal, immer samstags, einen gemeinsamen Abend, an dem sie Pizzen in dem Steinofen vor Ort für alle (ca. 20Personen) bzw.toskanische Spezialitäten mit hauseigenem Wein anboten. Auch eine Weinverkostung wurde organisiert. Sie waren jeder Zeit bereit, Tipps zu geben und bei der Planung von Aktivitäten zu beraten und helfen.
Also besser kann man sich einen Urlaub in der Toskana nicht vorstellen!
Cons Es war PERFEKT!
Local attractions In Strada, ca 3km entfernt, führt ein Schotterweg zu einer kleinen Siedlung mit Osteria, mit leckerem, preislich günstigem und sehr authentischem Essen. Sehenswert sind: - Schloss Brolio - einige Dörfer in Chianti (Greve, v.a. die Fleischerei!!!, Castellina, Radda, Volpaia) - Monteriggioni - Siena - San Gimignano - Arezzo - Florenz (mit dem Zug ab Montevarchi) - Rapolano Therme (zum Entspannen, Baden...) Gut einkaufen kann man in Montevarchi oder in einem kleinen Supermarkt in Gaiole in Chianti.
