Porta di Gaiole is a small hamlet of 5 apartments located just on the edge of the beautiful Tuscan town Gaiole in Chianti. This town is one of the five main Chianti towns and is filled with character and charm.

Porta di Gaiole is completely fenced, however being on the edge of the town some town noise can be heard at the property. Neighbouring it is also the town sport grounds which includes a soccer pitch where occasional games will be played.

The area around the pool is a lovely lawn with plenty of sun and a couple of olive trees, while immediately around the pool is a terracotta sun deck with a few sun beds and umbrellas to relax under the Tuscan sun. The private villa gardens each provide immediate access to the pool area, which is enclosed by a low fence.

Pros Very spacious and characterinside; lots of outdoor space; two-minute walk into town.
Cons The noise from the nearby building works at the brook (about which we'd been warned) was tiresome. A temporary problem, I hope.
Local attractions Excellent lunch at the nearby winery Castello di Brollio. Radda and Greve well worth a visit (both are prettier than Gaiole!) "Il Fiasco" cooked us a delicious dinner in the villa one evening: best panna cotta I've ever had!

Pros La villa est très agréable, très grande, et conçue de façon à être toujours fraîche, même par de grosses chaleurs, donc pas besoin de mettre la clim'. Les nombreuses terrasses permettent d'être soit à l'ombre, soit au soleil, quelque soit le moment de la journée. La piscine est grande et permet donc un partage avec les autres occupants sans se gêner.
Cons Le ménage en arrivant aurait pu être un peu mieux fait, mais rien de très grave.
Local attractions L'excellent restaurant de Badia a Coltibuono est à faire absolument. De nombreux villages du Chianti à proximité. Un peu plus loin, la ville de San Gimignano est magnifique.

Cons Prijs/kwaliteit verhouding klopt niet. Bij aankomst 's middags, terwijl 's morgenvroeg al sms gestuurd, appartement niet schoon. Twee schoonmaakster kwamen langs, binnen een half uur klaar?? Wij hebben nog nooit een huis gezien met zoveel spinnenwebben, van beneden tot boven en niet van enkele weken!! Volgens gegevens ook een wasmachine, schijnbaar door vorige huurders vernield, dus helaas?? ook geen vervanging?? Een whirpool bad, bediening stuk, kabels staken eraan de bovenkant uit? Tv slaapkamer, niet gezien. Ga zo maar door. En ook niet erg fris, allemaal katten om en rond het appartement/zwembad. Onze verwachtingen van dit appartement, gezien de foto's en de prijs waren hoog, helaas een enorme teleurstelling.

We have recently checked with the owner and there ia a new washing machine and dryer working well at the property. The whirlpool is only used as a normal bath and there is no cable above.

Pros Nous avons adoré la région, elle a beaucoup à offrir, une gastronomie fabuleuse, un cadre magnifique et des gens accueillants. Pour les amoureux du vélo c'est le paradis!
La villa est superbe, spacieuse, elle offre un grand niveau de confort, elle a beaucoup de charme avec son style typique de la région. La grande piscine a fait le bonheur des enfants et aussi des parents.
Cons Tout nous a plu!
Local attractions Le restaurant situé à environ 200 mètre est excellent! Avec un rapport qualité/prix imbattable. Allez boire un ver à la Cantinetta, ambiance super sympa, pour le bonheur des amateurs de vin! La proximité de Sienne, de Florence et de nombreux petits village très touristiques font de Gaiole un endroit idéalement situé pour qui veut découvrir la Toscanne et le Chianti en particulier.

Stay: July 2013
Pros We loved the use of space which enabled us to have breakfast upstairs on the terrace and supper downstairs in the late evening. Being able to walk in to town to buy bread etc or eat in one of the restaurants was a real bonus.
Pool was a good size, convenient and very clean.
Atmosphere of a small hamlet with friendly people around helped to make us feel welcome and secure.
Cons It was quite noisy particularly at night with the local dogs barking and first thing in the morning with local industry starting their business.
Local attractions Festivals and exhibitions almost every day. We particularly enjoyed the modern sculptures exhibited throughout the town. A highlight for us all (including 18 year old son) was being able to hire vespa/scooters from Lucca and setting off to explore the area at a closer range (smells and scenary) and different pace.

Pros Zum Haus:
Das Haus ist wunderschön, der Garten sehr gepflegt und der Pool sehr groß. Aufgrund der Bauart, bleibt das Haus auch bei hohen Temperaturen angenehm kühl.
Moira, die Hausverwalterin sowie der Hausbesitzer sind sehr, sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Moira betreibt auch einen Reitstall. Wer also Lust hat auf Reiten, ist an der richtigen Adresse.

Zu Gaiole:
Die Atmosphäre in Gaiole ist grundsätzlich sehr entspannt.
Das Essen in den anligenden Restaurants ist ausgezeichnet. Wer allerdings eine Pizza essen möchte, wird enttäuscht sein, da die meisten Restaurants keine anbieten. Dafür aber Carpaccio mit Trüffeln, oder Pici oder Spaghetti al vongole!
Das Dorf ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen. Ist ebenfalls sehr nahe an Siena (25 Min. Autofahrt).

Tips für Reisende mit Kleinkindern:
Bringt ein gutes Babyphone mit weil die Hauswände sehr dick sind, und man mit einem schlechten Gerät keinen Empfang im Garten hat.
Je nach Jahreszeit können sehr viele Stechmücken unterwegs sein!
Cons Das Haus ist nichts wenn man eine Katzenallergie hat, weil alle Dorfkatzen in den Garten kommen, sei es um sich dort zu sonnen oder um die schattige Terrasse zu genießen.
Local attractions Bestes Restaurant: Trattoria al ponte!
