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.

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.
