Gaiole was ranked #1 by Forbes Magazine in its list of “Europe’s Most Idyllic Places To Live”.

There are three spacious bedrooms and a beautiful terrace on the top floor, with excellent views into the town and across the hills.

Our Thoughts
If you’re looking for easy access to one of the most beautiful and peaceful towns in Europe, look no further. The location of Chiocciola is ideal, just a brief walk away from the town of Gaiole, and just a 40 minute drive from Siena. However, the villa itself is worth celebrating on its own merits. One of the highlights is the wonderful terrace on the top floor, with great views into the town and across the forest-covered hills. The bedrooms are pleasantly spacious, each with French doors which are ideal for keeping cool in the summer months.

Notes
2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom.
The double beds cannot be converted into twins. The twin beds cannot be converted into a double.
Pets are welcome although not in the pool area.
The owner lives within the complex but they have their own section of the house with a separate entrance.
This villa has a lot of stairs and may be problematic for those who have difficulty with mobility.
2 bathrooms (none en-suite), 1 bathtub, 1 shower.

Les désagréments de notre séjour :
- pas de chaise haute pour enfant en bas âge alors que nous l'avions spécifié à la réservation et à nouveau précisé quelques jours avant notre arrivée, nous l'avons signalé dés notre arrivée mais sans résultats.
- le lit bébé était installé sur la terrasse de la chambre du dernier étage (qui n'avait pas de volets! difficile de bien dormir dans ces conditions). Pas pensable de faire dormir un enfant de moins de 18mois sur la terrasse avec en plus un petit nid de guêpes sur un des piliers. Nous avons dû démonter le lit en bois pour le faire passer dans l'escalier et le mettre dans une chambre plus grande.
- les couchages ne sont pas confortables (peu épais et déjà bien usés) et les oreillers encore moins.
- les bruleurs de la gazinière fonctionnent une fois sur 10 et certains pas du tout.
- le lave vaisselle n'avait pas été nettoyè depuis longtemps, nous avons dû le faire, la première vaisselle est sortie sale.
- le frigo était couvert de glace, la porte avait été laissée ouverte...il a fallu attendre 24 h pour qu'il fasse à nouveau du froid.
- il aurait été agréable d'avoir : couteaux à découper, cuillères en bois, épluche légumes, couteaux d'office...un peu de liquide vaisselle, quelques produits de base pour le premier jour (huile, sucre, 1 filtre à café...)
La maison est bien décorée, l'emplacement est calme et le parking facile. Beaucoup de serviettes de toilette, mais un seul torchon pour la vaisselle.

Local attractions Les restaurants du village sont très bons et le personnel agréable. il y a beaucoup de vie dans ce petit village, on ne le soupçonne pas à l'arrivée. nous recommandons la sortie en vélo avec assistance électrique proposée par le magasin de cycle du village.
