Pros For our group of three couples, this house was PERFECT and so relaxing! The mix of Tuscan charm with modern amenities was perfect. The swimming pool, the media center and the perfectly arranged bedrooms were wonderful. Gaiole in Chianti and surrounding towns are true treasures, each presenting a unique experience. Sestuccia 8 was perfectly situated to explore the area.
Cons ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Wish we were able to stay more than the week we booked! (July 12-19, 2014) We'd go back in a "heartbeat"!
Local attractions Castello Di Ami is a "must see" wine tour; especially if you like modern art. This is true also for the Chianti Sculpture Park! We loved listening to music and singers at this setting! As for dining out, there were no disappointments! "Bar Centrale" in Gaiole is a fun place to grab a morning cappucino. We started and ended our stay by dining at Lo Sfizio DI Bianchi, a wonderful pizza and pastry place where the "vino locale" was superb. A lovely restaurant in LECCHI is Ristorante Malberghetto. If you "tire" of Tuscan cuisine and crave a hamburger, visit Antica Macelleria Cecchini located in Panzano in Chianti. This famous butcher shop has two restaurants. Be forewarned to have a bistecca, you need to preorder two days ahead! The wonderful owner of Sestuccia 8 provides a wonderful informational packet and makes suggestions if asked. Terrific person!!

Pros Sestuccia was even more beautiful than the wonderful photos online. The family was amazing and the home & grounds were impeccable. We had access to their gardens and my children loved to pick fruit from the trees and getting fresh eggs from the chickens. We loved watching the kids swim under the colored lights set in the trees and enjoying meals under the covered porch. With four young children and our elderly in-laws with us, we were MORE than comfortable with the space.
It is close to so many wonderful destinations and secluded enough to really get away. Luciano and his family cooked a delicious meal for us on our final night and they were so welcoming without being intrusive. They really do care for the property and the tenants with a big heart.
The town of Gaiole is also close enough to grab a great dinner, shop or find gelato.
Cons Leaving :)
Local attractions We took two trips to Siena - one for the Palio and one for walking around. Neighboring Castellina, Radda and Panzano were great. Dario the Butcher was awesome.

Pros We loved that the villa was exactly as it appeared in photos in the To-Tuscany listing! The design and layout of the villa inside and out were just amazing! We loved Brigitta and her father - such kind and friendly hosts during our stay there. They were very concerned about our enjoyment and happiness. The pool, sauna, patio and al fresco dining areas outdoors were perhaps our favorite place. We also loved the grounds lighting outdoors - made it even better at night. The herb garden and chicken coop for eggs up the road, such great touches. Laundry on site was a much needed feature as well. The stereo setup was excellent for music lovers, it worked in the house and outside at the table and by the pool. Perfetto!
Cons One of our bathroom showers (cellar) was not working properly so one couple had to share. With exception of the shower, our critical feedback was minimal and would only serve to make this A+ property into an A+++. Kitchen was a bit on small side given the rest of the house/property excellence. By listing we thought A/C was entire house, but learned not all rooms had it (not an issue for our trip as temps were great at night for windows).
Local attractions Castel Di Spaltenna, Ristorante le Contrade were two amazing surprises for us - much more formal dinner experiences than we are used to in States, so creative and enjoyable for our group. But we also loved the typical spots in Gaiole for pizza/Italian fare. We loved seeing all the bikers everyday riding through Chianti, quintessential Tuscan hills. Greve and Radda were also nice half day trips to walk, shop, eat and take pictures of countryside.

The owner replied: Brett, Thanks for the wonderful review for Sestuccia and I thank you also for making me notice the need for air conditioning in all the rooms, I immediately arranged. Now the air conditioning is throughout the house. I hope to have you back as Sestuccia guests.
16.06.2014
Thank you for your review. The owner apologises and fixed the shower immediately he knew there was a problem. He would have been happy for you to call him during your stay so he could have dealt with it for you.

Pros To Tuscany has been renting an apartment at this villa for some years and I was delighted that the owner Luciano decided to rent the whole villa for the 2013 season for 8 people with its own private pool. The villa is in a superb location near to the Chianti towns of Gaiole in Chianti and Radda in Chianti, the position is typical Chianti surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Inside, the property layout is perfect for a family or friends traveling together with an excellent al fresco dinning area.
