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.

Throughout the villa are heating/cooling units. These can only be turned on when the local law allows it, which depends on the weather. Should you require them please check with the hamlet manager if they are on. The cost of their use is charged extra.

The property is built on sloped land with a covered car park at the lower level. From here there are steps or a lift to the central courtyard, these continue up to the pool area.

We had a lovely holiday, Borgo Gaiole is very well located, it is just a short walk to the small town of Gaiole which has a great selection of friendly cafes, restaurants, shops and delis. The apartment was very comfortable and had lots of beautiful outdoor space. The swimming pool was great, we visited every day and never felt too busy. Gaiole is great base to visit Siena and Florence and we also drove to Rome in under 3 hours. Lovely holiday, we will go back.
