Terrazza Alta is a large villa at the top of the hamlet Borgo Gaiole. It is reached by several flights of terracotta steps through the pretty hamlet. The entrance to this pretty and homely villa is from a small, well maintained courtyard.
Inside is a bright open plan room, with lounge and kitchen/diner. Immediately on entering is the comfortable lounge which has three armchairs and a double sofa. There is a stereo with a collection of CDs available. In one corner is a TV. The floor is tiled with polished terracotta, while the ceiling is typical Tuscan with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
Passing under a terracotta arch there is the dining table which seats six people. Next to this is a large, well equipped sideboard. To the back of this part of the room is a fitted kitchen with an oven, electric hobs, dishwasher and a fridge with separate freezer. In the living area it's possible to hear a slight hum from the town activities.
Off the lounge is a small hall from where there is access to the first of the three double bedrooms. This room is furnished in pale colours. It has a double wardrobe. The window is a high oval shaped window. A bathroom with shower is also accessed from the hall. There is also a door which leads out to a private courtyard.
To the back of the kitchen is a small room with an irregular shape. It's furnished with sturdy iron bunkbeds. There is a chest of drawers and wardrobe in the room. The large window looks out to the main courtyard. It's an ideal room for children, not recommended for adults.
Off the kitchen is access to a small hall. Directly off this is a bathroom with tub with shower fixture. And there is access to the internal courtyard. The hall continues on passing iron stairs with marble steps, to the second double bedroom, which is an irregular triangular shape. The room is tastefully done in red colours with a pale coloured wardrobe and chest of drawers. In one corner is an armchair.
The stairs are protected both at the bottom and top by little gates. They are quite narrow and steep. Upstairs is the main suite. It has a small lounge furnished with two armchairs and a writing desk. This leads out to a balcony with table and chairs. It has a fantastic view over the roof tops, onto Gaiole and then across the Chianti hills.
To the other side of the stairs is a small hall which has a door leading out of the villa to the communal areas of this pretty Tuscan hamlet. Also off the hall is a bathroom with shower, and a large double bedroom. There is a double wardrobe and a large chest of drawers. Two windows provide the room with plenty of light.
On the lower floor of Terrazza Alta there is the small internal courtyard. One side is open to a hamlet path. This is accessed by an iron gate. Crossing the path and passing through another iron gate there is access to the villa garden. This is on two levels. It is perfectly maintained with lovely lawns and pretty plants. Going up to the upper level there is a table with 6 chairs, shaded by a lovely pergola. All around the garden there are other apartments.
There are three covered parking places allocated to Terrazza Alta.
The double beds cannot be made into twins.

De locatie is gelegen in een prachtige omgeving tussen de wijnresorts (Chianti Classico). Op goede afstand van de wat grotere plaatsen als Sienna en Florence. De woning was van alles voorzien wat je nodig hebt. Je kan op verschillende plekken buiten zitten, al dan niet in de zon. Het zwembad is prima. In het dorpje kan je de dagelijkse boodschappen doen, lekker eten en een terrasje pakken. Grotere supermarkten op een half uur rijden. Het weer was fantastisch.
Local attractions Bezoekjes aan de de wijnboeren om te proeven en natuurlijk wijn, Chianti Classico Reserva, vinsanto en grappa mee te nemen. Wijngaard Rietine hebben we goede herinneringen aan, op 10 minuten rijden. Prachtige vergezichten en een bevlogen producent. Kasteel Meleto, ook een wijnproducent, ligt er vlak bij. In het dorpje zelf heerlijk pizza gegeten. Ook daar hebben we wijn geproefd en gekocht. Kortom we hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad!

Superb views and great location near the town centre. The swimming pool was clean and lots of available seating, along with available shade when needed.
The Terrazza Alta was very well equipped with comfortable living accommodation and all facilities.


The Terrazza Alta is very unique in its build but not overly suitable for families with young children, there are many stairs to climb and the outside space although lovely possibly does not suit young families. I would also warn of the danger of the staircase to the upper floor as there is a risk of injury due to the overhang of the support girder. The spiral staircase is quite narrow. Having said that it was our villa of choice and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Local attractions We really enjoyed eating out in the local town along with trips to Florence, Siena and Radda. The small village of Vertine a must for lunch.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

01.10.2015
Owner Comment; Thank you for your review and comments. I would like to add that the Apartments have been built to accommodate the hillside location, reflecting the rustic charm and traditional characteristics of an old Borgo, both internally and externally. To ensure the safety of young children there are stair gates fitted at the top and bottom of the internal spiral staircase. Overall, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Terrazza Alta and in Gaiole. The owners of Terrazza Alta.

We really enjoyed our stay in Terrazza Alta. The location on the hill over Gaiole is very quiet and offers a nice view of the valley. The rooms in the apartment are spacious and old-style equipped, which only adds to the real toscana atmosphere. Garden is very neat, with the possibility to eat in the shadow of the summer house's hedge. All the members of our group, our baby included, liked the whole Borgo Gaiole complex very much. It was just the ideal starting point for our Chianti region trips.
As mentioned in the previous comments, the upper bedroom doesn't have door, which is quite unusual except you're a caveman :) On the other hand, the first floor offers a lot of space to relax, the balcony with the growing bay leaf in the pots being the top!
Plus it took us some time to find the italian electric travel adapters in the house, we finally found two, one on the kitchen desk and another attached to the iron, so keep on searching :)
Local attractions We discovered little by little, that the region has numerous castles. Castello di Brolio as a must see. But absolute top was the small village Vertine just over the Borgo Gaiole, we enjoyed a very nice lunch there.

Spacious, well equipped, great view from upper floor terasse, apartment in good state, staff was quick and helpful
no green around just some potted plants, area around pool much too small, the staircase to the upper floor is extremely narrow, bedroom in upper floor has no door, you can hear your neighbors as if they lived in the same appartment

Eine tolle Anlage die durch ihre Bauweise tatsächlich an eine alte toskanische Burg erinnert. Innen uns außen sehr gepflegt und durch liebevolle Details wie z.B. die großen Blumenkübel im kompletten Außenbereich oder die kleinen zu den Wohnungen gehörenden Gartenstücke ein echter Hingucker.
Local attractions Jeder kleine Ort in der Nähe von Gaiole besitzt eine kleine Burg, eine alte Kirche oder eine Weingeschäft. Alles ist sehenswert und lohnt einen Ausflug.
