Torretta Barbischio, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Set in a tiny hamlet a short distance from Gaiole, one of Chianti’s most popular hill towns, Torretta Barbischio makes a wonderful base for visiting the wine-producing region. This property is breathing history and dates back to the 14th century. You’re within easy reach of Siena, Florence and San Gimignano when you want a bit of Tuscan flamboyance, but this beautifully furnished and immaculately kept villa will ensure hours of deep relaxation and contentment. With accommodation arranged over three floors inside and three terraces outside – all with unimpeded views of Chianti woodland and vineyards – plus a generous private pool, the villa is ideal for families with older children or a group of friends. A full party of six will find plenty of space to settle into. And if you have any fitness enthusiasts with you, there’s even a well-equipped home gym in the pool house.

There is much to enjoy inside Torretta Barbischio – ornate mirrors, richly coloured kelims and painted cupboards complement stylish contemporary windows and en-suite bathrooms – but the simple pleasures of watching the sun go down during dinner on the terrace may well come top of your holiday memories.

Our Thoughts
Torretta Barbischio will spoil you silly. This beautifully restored villa has lovely traditional Tuscan touches – including terracotta vaulted ceilings and floor tiles, handsome stone walls, cool interiors – plus original artwork, brocaded textiles, en-suite bathrooms and an enviable private pool, complete with poolside gym room and bathroom. On top of that, you are in a truly peaceful hamlet with an excellent local restaurant and are just a hop and a skip from Chianti’s gem, Gaiole.

Notes
Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, all en-suite. One double can be converted to twins if requested when booking. Maid service three times a week is included. Note that Torretta Barbischio's gardens are overlooked by the villa’s immediate neighbour and there is a road passing the villa – however, this is used only by local residents.

Fabulous villa with fantastic views. Lots of space both indoors and outdoors to either be together as a group or for couples to have time to themselves. Very well equipped and with a comprehensive basket of essential food supplies for us on arrival. The villa suited us, but with the villa split across 5 levels (lots of steps!) it would not suit holidaymakers with mobility issues. Well located to go walking in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Local attractions A visit (or two!) to Osteria Il Papavero (just 50 m up the road) is a must. Fabulous authentic Tuscan food - and the restaurant were able to accommodate one of our party with complex food allergies. All round excellent hospitality with personality. Also recommend takeaway pizzas from Ciamparini Corrado In Gaiole in Chianti. Multiple good places for coffee and pastries or gelato in Gaiole - a 30 minute walk downhill from the villa. Highly recommend a visit to the local (easy walking distance) organic vineyard La Casa di Bricciano - a fantastic tour of the property and excellent, generous wine-tasting with local meats and cheese.
