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.

Stay: August 2015
Pros Der Pizza-Samstag um sich kennenzulernen. Das macht einfach eine gute Stimmung und sorgt für ein tolerantes Miteinander.
Das Ambiente fanden wir sehr schön und romantisch.
Die Lage auf dem Berg hat den Vorteil, dass es Abends abkühlt und man wunderbar vor dem Haus sitzen kann mit halb so vielen Mücken wie in Gaiole unten.
Cons Die Küchenausrüstung war etwas enttäuschend, die Messer stumpf, das Geschirr vom Vorgänger mittelgut gespült, der Backofen mit Putzmittelresten und die Dinge wahrlos in die Schränke gestellt ohne jedes System. Da wäre eine Checkliste toll, was in den Haushalt gehört, ob alles da ist und ob es funktioniert. Mir scheint die Ausstattung vermischt sich mit der Zeit mit den anderen Wohnungen. So auch die Sitzkissen und Auflagen für die Liegen. Es fehlt eine Gebrauchsanleitung für den Grill/Mikrowelle.

Pros La propriété est vraiment très belle et très calme.
L'accueil de Tania est excellent, elle est très sympathique et répond au mieux à nos besoins.
La pizza party du samedi soir est au top ! Les pizzas sont préparées et cuites dans le four devant nous, c'est sympathique et convivial (le propriétaire est aux petits soins, c'est très agréable). Ce sont les meilleures pizzas que nous ayons mangées.
Cons La cuisine est vraiment vieillotte (mauvaise odeur dans les placards, pas suffisamment de casseroles, poêle, etc ...). Le réfrigérateur mérite d'être changé. La déco est sympa (vieilles armoire et commode de style tosccan) mais malheureusement les odeurs vont avec et la naphtaline, c'est franchement pas terrible. Nous n'avons jamais mangé dehors, ce n'est pas pratique de devoir tout descendre à chaque fois (pas trop grave pour nous car nous sommes en pavillon, mais il faut en avoir bien conscience surtout si on vit en appartement toute l'année).
