La Collina is a fantastic property composed of several two people villas set up as suites, and a central kitchen-dining area. It is located in the hills of the central Chianti, only 4km from Castagnoli and 10km from Gaiole in Chianti.
In the simple garden is a pretty, irregular shaped pool, around which there are some chairs and loungers to relax in the sun. There are simple views of the Chianti, forest covered hills to two sides.
There are 3 buildings on the property, two are separated by a lovely, original stone path. Next to the single floor building which houses one villa and storage areas, there is the outside, stone paved dining area. This is partly shaded by wisteria. It is furnished with two wooden tables and 8 matching wooden chairs.
There is a large kitchen with dining area to the back of the main building, facing towards the pool area. The area was the original cellar and is wonderfully cool in the summer. It is simply furnished with a traditional Tuscan table with benches and a small kitchenette along the back wall. It is equipped with gas hobs, a dishwasher, and small under the counter fridge with internal ice box. There is limited work space.
The property has 3 suites with one bedroom each. The first is called Mela and it is located in the single floor building. It is a pretty suite with plenty of space. It has a comfortable living area which is graced by a large, original fireplace where a stove has been placed for heating. In a corner are gas hobs while a sink with a small under the counter fridge are in another corner.
In the centre of the room is a wooden table with two chairs, while a bench rests against a wall and a comfortable, double sofa against another. To one side of this living area there is a short hall leading to a spacious bathroom with bathtub and handheld shower. While a spacious double bedroom is to the other side of the living area.
The second suite is in the old hay barn and is located near the pool area. It is on two floors, outside the lower floor is a flag stone terrace with table and a couple of chairs which look towards the pool area which is only a few metres away. Inside is an open plan room with a kitchenette along one wall. This is equipped with induction hobs and a small, under the counter fridge with internal ice box.
Along the other wall, facing the kitchenette is a modern wooden dining table and chairs. Next to this is a comfortable corner sofa. The room has a lovely warm and bright atmosphere due to the terracotta floor, wooden ceiling and two glass doors on either end of the room. The bathroom with shower completes the ground floor.
On the first floor is the sleeping area with a second lounge. The room is paved in wood and has a double bed with double door wardrobe to one side. While the two double sofas face the large window which looks out towards the pool area and the views beyond. Double doors lead out to a covered terrace with a wicker chair ideal to relax in the cool shade. This is the only suite that has air-conditioning.
Niki is the third suite of the property. It is located on the ground floor of the main building. Inside is a cosy lounge with the original terracotta floor and ceiling of terracotta and wooden beams. A comfortable double sofa sits next to a large double door wardrobe while a wooden table with four chairs rest against the opposite wall. A tiny cupboard kitchenette is available for preparing drinks and snacks.
The unusual bedroom has the original, restored feeding trough along the back wall and acting as the headboard. The floor is pave in stone and terracotta. The furnishings include a wooden double bed and a chest of drawers. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The owners have an apartment on the first floor, however they do not stay at the property when guests occupy it.
The large kitchen and dining area is not shown on the floor plans.
3 double bedrooms.
Only the Capanna, near the pool has air-conditioning and it is charged by consumption for it's use.
This property can be rented for less occupancy, in which case the suites are not used are not rented out to other guests.

Note that fridges are only available in the main kitchen, suites Mela and Capanna

Pool Info

Around the pool is limited space, which is paved in stone, beyond this narrow deck the garden slopes away. At the pool area there are a few deck chairs and sun beds. There are no umbrellas.
