Villa Le Piane is on the edge of a small collection of three houses with which it shares the pool. The villa is composed of a main house which has an L shape and a small independent cottage, surrounded by a pretty garden with open views of the forest covered hills that surround these Tuscan villas.
The villa is accessed across a lovely stone paved, courtyard terrace which is furnished with a table, chairs and umbrella. To one side there are also some sun beds from where the views of the Tuscan hills and valley can be admired.
Entering the villa directly infront of the glass and wood doors, there is a typical Tuscan, brick built kitchen with tiled work surfaces. A breakfast bar with terracotta arch looks into the kitchen which is entered through a second terracotta arch. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes gas hobs, oven and fridge with freezer.
Passing the kitchen there is the large, spacious lounge. Along the back wall is a long wooden typical Tuscan table with various objects on it. The opposite wall has a large open fireplace in traditional Tuscan villa style. Huddled around this there is a large sofa and an armchair. To one side is a unit with some games. The room is completed with some beautiful rugs on the terracotta tiled floor.
Through a curtained arch there is access to large, bright dining room. This room has two large, glass doors which lead out to the courtyard terrace. The floor is laid with old terracotta tiles while the walls of the room have been left with the traditional stone visible. In the centre of the room is a wooden table that can seat up to 8 people. At the far end of the room two arched windows provide light onto a small sitting area with a comfortable armchair and a wicker rocking chair. To the back of the dining room is a small courtyard with table, chairs and a barbeque. This area can be seen by the neighbouring villas, this is the only part of the outside area which can be viewed by the other houses.
To the left of the entrance a door leads into a small hall from which there is access to a bathroom with shower and washing machine. There is also a double bedroom which can be set up as a twin on request when booking. The pretty room is furnished with a wardrobe, a writing desk and some open shelves on one wall. Like the rest of the villa the floor is in terracotta and the roof with terracotta tiles and wooden beams.
From the little hall there is a narrow spiral staircase which leads up to the first floor where there is the second double bedroom. There is a built in wardrobe and a cupboard with some shelves. To one side of the room is a pretty chair. The first floor is completed by a bathroom with small box shower.
Across the courtyard terrace there is a small cottage which is composed of a single room with little kitchenette at the back of the room, this has two hobs and a bar fridge. One wall has an open fireplace. The cottage is simply furnished with a double sofa bed and a wooden table with two chairs, ideal for breakfasts. There is a bathroom with shower.
The pool is about 100metres away, up through the hamlet.
From the garden it's possible to see and hear the road which passes the edge of the property.

If you require a twin room please request these when booking.

Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Location: Le Piane

Le Piane is a collection of three houses, located in the heart of the Chianti, not far from a road which leads to Gaiole in Chianti and to Radda in Chianti. It's perfectly positioned to make the most of central Tuscany with many wineries, castles and typical villages to explore.
There is a lovely infinity pool shared by the three typical Tuscan villas. The fenced pool is found at the top of the hamlet. From here, across the rooftops, there are wonderful views of the Tuscan hills dotted with villas, vineyards and forests.
The entire hamlet is well maintained, with pretty gardens filled with local plants and shrubs. Le Piane is on the edge of a valley floor, yet has great views of the Tuscan hills that surround it, and down the valley to one side.
The road between Radda in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti is lower than the hamlet, over 200 metres away and can be heard. It is not a very busy road but there is some traffic.

Pool Info

The pool is located above the hamlet. It is completely fenced and hidden by a pretty hedge, over which there are views of the hamlet roof tops which lead onto the Tuscan valley beyond. The hills that surround the villa are covered with forests and vineyards.
The large infinity pool is surrounded by a well maintained lawn dotted with local trees and rosemary bushes. According to hamlet regulations there are no sun beds around the pool, guests are to bring their own from the villa. There are no umbrellas but several trees providing shade. The pool is 15x8 metres and 1.2 metres deep, it's open from May to October, weather permitting.

Pros We had a wonderful time at this villa outside Gaiole In Chianti. If you love the Italian country side, this is the place to be. Peace and quiet is wonderful here. The pool is beautiful and is very big, looking out across the hills. Our older kids had several days of fun there, with areas to sit under the trees near the pool. Also, there are a couple of living spaces inside the home with TV and electronics to watch movies. We loved eating breakfast on the table out on the patio. Following breakfast, we traveled to different points of interest in Chianti and Tuscany. The location is good to spread out your interests between Florence or small trips to other beautiful towns. The beds were comfortable and it was great to have wi-fi and a washing machine. Rada is a great local place to have dinner, as well as Gaiole. You are located between the two, but the drive to Rada is amazing. We have teens an rented the smaller villa for them, which they loved. That made plenty of space for all 6 of us. The owners are very nice, and accommodated our late arrival. Thank you Antonella!
Every night the breeze came in the screened bedroom windows, and we slept well even on warmer days. There is a full kitchen with a nice fridge and four burners for the stove top.
Overall, this home was in a great location, and is extremely comfortable. If we returned, it would be our choice again. Beautiful country home with a gorgeous pool!
Local attractions Restaurants in Rada were wonderful. We had a beautiful trip to the piazza in Siena, and a wonderful longer trip to Val D'Orcia region. Nice little coffee shops opened early in Gaiole.

Pros sa localisation et sa piscine.
La maison est magnifique, et les différentes terrasses font parfaites pour manger à toutes les heures de la journée et du soir...
Cons La propreté de la douche du bungalow : joints totalement moisis dans le bas. La présence de blattes , mille pattes et autre insectes dans le séjour et les salle de bain. La présence de milliers de taons dans les alentours de la maison et du jardin; qui rendent même impossible toute ballade ou déplacement à pied ou à vélo sur tout les "chemins blancs" de la régions. La décoration, peut être Toscane, un peu vieillotte : trop de vieux bibelots, de vielleries, bref trop chargée trop datée, mais nous ne sommes que les locataires, si elle plait aux propriétaires....
Local attractions à voir : GAIOLE, RADA, VERTINE, MELETO, CASTELLINA et ses tombes Étrusques. L'Osteria de la Plazza à Castellina est une très bonne table : qualité et finesse des mets, et du service. à refaire.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

19.11.2014
The owner has taken care of the cockroaches with special products to keep it under control. This season it was extremely rainy and it has been a problem to control the flies and insects. Cockroaches are also found to be a problem, especially in the rural areas. The shower silicone seals will be renewed for the 2015 season.

Nearest town
