Borratella, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

4 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

A luxurious old stone villa set among acres of vines in the heart of Chianti, Borratella is a fabulous holiday home for up to eight guests. It’s very convenient for the lively market town of Gaiole and Brolio Castle is also nearby. This tastefully designed property retains much of its history, yet has an airy, modern look with a bright décor and interesting antique pieces. Exposed stone walls and a mixture of typical terracotta, light-tiled or attractive wood floors adds texture to the overall feel.

The huge, traditional-style kitchen is perfect for rustling up communal meals and there’s space for dining, too. But don’t miss eating in the spacious loggia, which has views across your private pool and garden to the vineyards and olive groves beyond. The pool, set in lush lawn, it really couldn’t be more inviting – pull up a sunbed and enjoy the views. With a lounge on every floor, there’s space for everyone to relax here.  Sleeping arrangements are flexible, too – an annexe en-suite bedroom offers privacy for one couple, while others will be tossing a coin for the enormous master suite.

Our Thoughts
This is a luxury villa that retains lots of Tuscan character, while offering all mod cons and contemporary touches. It’s beautifully decorated and achieves the perfect blend of old and new. The pretty gardens and the huge pool are big draws, too, as are the views to the surrounding vineyards.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Six bathrooms, two en-suite. The annexe is accessed independently via external stairs or a door in the garden – it is not linked internally to the rest of the villa. The caretaker lives nearby on the estate. Air conditioning is available in every bedroom as well as the first floor lounge. This service is included in the weekly price.

Pool
The large pool Is just to the side of the house, accessed from the loggia on the ground floor via a few stone steps. It is set in a paved deck, surrounded by a neat lawn and plenty of sunbeds. The water is reached via a short flight of steps. The pool measures 15 x 8 metres and 1.4 to 2 metres deep. It's open from April to October, weather permitting.
