Set in a wonderful location nestling in the Tuscan hillside, surrounded by olive groves and wonderful views. Villa Oliveta is only 4km from Gaiole in Chianti and ideally situated for day trips to Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Rome. Oliveta is attached to a neighbouring property and part of a traditional Italian cluster of dwellings, however the pool and gardens are private to you.


The pool is situated at the rear of the property surrounded by olive trees, Mediterranean shrubs and hedging. The pool has a paved surround where there are plenty of tables, umbrellas and sun loungers to relax in. From poolside you have a fantastic view of the rolling wooded hillsides all around.



At the front of the house there is a small private garden with a wide footpath leading to a small flight of stone steps up to the front door.

The front door opens into a large hallway from which all the ground floor rooms lead off. Immediately on the left is the ground floor bedroom which has a double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers and views over the front garden. The ensuite bathroom with shower is in the far right hand corner.

Directly ahead as you enter the house is the lounge/kitchen/diner which has an open fireplace, comfortable sofa and a wooden dining table with six chairs. Along one wall are fitted units with a built in oven with gas hobs, fridge, washing machine, microwave oven and a TV with some satellite channels.



A set of double doors open onto the rear garden area.  In the far left hand corner of the kitchen a flight of stairs take you up to the first floor.

The first floor landing area has doors to both the remaining two bedrooms, and a bathroom with shower, basin and WC. The first bedroom has two large windows which allow light to flood the room. This room has matching twin beds which can be pushed together to make a double bed if required. There is also a day bed which can be used as an extra bed or a sofa, as needed and a large wooden wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The second bedroom is the master bedroom which has the traditional Tuscan terracotta tiled floor with tiled and beamed ceiling. There is a wooden double bed with matching wardrobe and chest of drawers. There is also a writing desk and chair as well as an armchair. The ensuite bathroom has a shower, basin and WC.

Outside, split level stairs from the kitchen area take you down into the garden. The garden areas are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, with large brightly planted terracotta pots dotted throughout. There is also a barbeque and a covered gazebo with dining table and chairs, which is ideal for dining ‘al fresco’ or sitting with a glass of wine watching the stars.



Set in an ideal location for visiting the sights of Tuscany such as Florence and Siena as well as discovering its smaller towns and villages.





There is also a barbeque and a covered gazebo with dining table and chairs.

Pros It is situated in a most beautiful location. The owners were exceptionally nice people and local villagers also very friendly. It was a bonus to have three toilets/bathroom facilities.
Local attractions Oliveta is central to visit so many places - Pisa, Florence, Siena, Radda and many of the smaller places. We enjoyed wine tasting at Cantalici (Castagnoli) - a lovely lady - and a very nice meal at the castle but I can't remember the name, sorry! We only had pizza and snacks in Gaiole but everything was very nice.

Pros Beautiful position - Very friendly hosts - private with stunning views - good amenities - very close to the town - lots of good restaurants nearby.
Local attractions Gaiole in Chianti is very close and a lovely little town - lots of wineries close by with (in our opinion) one of the best only 1k away. Great Restaurants everywhere. Only around 40 mins drive to Sienna and we found Florence easy to get to via taking the Train from Montevarchi - although driving was pretty easy too. PS - Villa has a great pool with a great view !!

Pros The house was big and comfortable with lots of charm.
The pool and garden were great and the views spectacular.
Vanessa and her family were very friendly and helpful hosts.
Cons Nothing
Local attractions The owner recommended il Bandito, a local restaurant, about 15 to 20 minutes walk away. The food was great and views on the way very nice. We also walked to a local castle (about 30 minutes walk) where there was wine tasting (and maybe a restaurant). Gaiole the nearest town (5 minutes drive) was good for afternoon ice creams and some shopping. Likewise Radda (about 15 minutes drive) which also has a nice old town and surrounding views. Siena was about a 30 minutes drive away and was a good day trip.

Pros What a fantastic location!! Stunning view! The garden was beautiful. The pool was relaxing. Everything was spotless and there was nothing more we could have needed to make our stay any better.
We found 5 wineries within walking distance of the villa and who could ask for more than that!
We hope to be back!!

Cons Absolutely nothing!
Local attractions Gaiole in Chianti is just a short drive away and has everything you need. Il Bandito Osteria is just a short walk down the road and not to be missed. Fantastic food at reasonable prices and the owners couldn't do enough to make you feel at home!. Don't miss the small village of Vertine. Very beautiful!!

Pros Die Lage ist sehr schön mit einem sehr schönen Ausblick. Der Garten ist toll und das Haus gefiel uns wegen seinem toskanischen Ambiente. Die Hausbesitzer haben uns sehr nett empfangen, brachten uns Brennholz und auch selbstgebackene Biskuits.
Cons Wir waren im April und es war sehr kalt im Haus, es konnte nur die Wohn-Küche mit einem kleinen Holzofen leicht erwärmt werden. Den Backofen haben nicht benutzt, da er schmutzig war und beim erwärmen gestunken hat. Die Küche allgemein und die Duschen waren nicht gerade sauber.
Local attractions Sehr schön waren die Ausflüge nach Siena und Florenz.

The owner was sorry to hear of any disappointment. The weather was exceptionally cold for the season. Heating was available at a consumption cost as mentioned in the description but the owner supplied wood for the kitchen stove for the whole week free of charge. The property had been thoroughly cleaned prior to arrival.

Pros Oliveta's location and views were simply stunning. The pool area and garden were peaceful and very well maintained. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our week away, including a dishwasher, washing machine, fans in every room and a hair dryer in every bathroom. There was even a selection of local wine and 'Oliveta' Olive Oil available in the house for purchase at very reasonable prices! The owners and their family who live in a separate house next door were so accommodating and kind to us, helping us to find a mechanic and translating when we had problems with our car, and also helping us find a vet to have the necessary checks for our two dogs before returning to the UK. Their hospitality certainly made our holiday much more enjoyable, and we look forward to returning for another week at Oliveta very soon!
Cons Nothing
Local attractions Gaiole in Chianti the local town is a five minute drive away and has everything you need including restaurants, a supermarket, cafe's, banks and even a Tourist information office, as well as a very good mechanic should you be driving and have a problem with your car as we did!

Pros Fantastic location, beautiful pool and extremely handing for visiting local attractions. The owner and her family are delightful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Local attractions Visiting San Gimignano, a bit of a drive but worth it. Pizza Pie in Radda was cheap and fun, a challenge to finish the enormous tasty pizzas. Also the Local Sculpture Park is worth a visit.

Pros Uns hat die ausgezeichnete Lage des Ferienhauses gefallen. Die zentrale Lage von Rietine in der Toskana ermöglicht das kennenlernen sehr vieler Städte mit ihren Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Ummgebung wie.z.b Siena,Florenz,Arezzo usw. Der Pool war bei Außentemperaturen um 30°C einsame Spitze und wurde von den Gastgebern ständig gepflegt. Unsere Gastgeber hielten sich diskret im Hintergrund, waren aber immer Gesprächsbereit wenn es unsererseits ein Anliegen gab. Das Ferienhaus war so wie beschrieben und die Bilder entsprechen absolut der Realität. Für anspruchsvolle Radsport Liebhaber ist Rietine der ideale Starpunkt, um die wunderschöne Umgebung mit den herrlichen Weingütern noch näher kennenzulernen. Rundum waren es unvergessliche 14 Tage Urlaub für uns.
Cons Wir konnten nichts negatives entdecken.
Local attractions Florenz und Siena sind ein Muss für Toskana reisende. Wem Auto fahren nicht zu viel ausmacht sollte ebenso Livorno einen Besuch abstatten.

Pros Een geweldig mooie ligging en alles keurig onderhouden. Heel vriendelijke en hulpvaardige mensen. Wifi voorziening aangelegd( op ons verzoek)
Cons Omdat wij vaak binnen moesten verblijven i.v.m. de slechte weersomstandigheden, bleek de accommodatie keuken/woonkamer te beperkt. Ook was er sprake van een rioollucht op de overloop.
Local attractions Heel leuke tochten zijn er te maken naar prachtig gelegen dorpen o.a Castellina in Chianti, San Gimignano en vele andere plaatsen. Geen restaurant bezocht i.v.m. het slecht weer.

Pros Die ruhige Umgebung. Der perfekte Ort um abzuschalten.
Und natürlich die Vermieter, die versucht haben auf all unsere Bedürfnisse einzugehen. Kurz gefasst - ein toller Urlaub.
Local attractions In der Nähe von Oliveta waren wir eher nicht unterwegs. Empfehlenswert ist eine Reise nach Siena und Florenz, wenn man schon in der Nähe ist.
