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.

Pros Appartement très confortable, accueil très chaleureux (diner avec tous les nouveaux locataires le premier soir), potager accessible, etc.
Cons Beaucoup de familles avec jeunes enfants qui faisaient du bruit tôt le matin. Nous n'avons aucun problème avec les enfants (nous en avons !) mais il aurait été souhaitable que les parents soient un peu plus vigilants...
Local attractions Nous avons fréquenté surtout le bar à vin à Gailole in Chianti sur la place, peu de restaurants à proximité.

Pros Wir durften mit unserem Hund kommen
Cons Keine Mittagsruhe am Pool - zuwenige Liegen am Pool (wurden ständig von unseren deutschen und niederländischen Gästen mit Handtüchern belegt) - sehr, sehr lautes Geschrei von den Kindern am Pool, dadurch war nur sehr wenig Entspannung möglich... Die Katze der Hausbesorger ging grundlos auf unseren Welpen los und verletzte ihn. Schade, da das Angebot als "Hundefreundlich" angeboten wird.
