Borratella, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

4 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

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. 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.

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.

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.

Villa Borratella is gelegen op een prachtig wijndomein. Hierbij enkele ervaringen.
-De villa is gelegen op een kleine wijngaard/landgoed. Het domein is enigzins afgelegen, maar Gaiole in Chianti ligt op 8 autominuten rijden en daar is alles te vinden van supermarkt, bakker, slagerij, groente, restaurants en cafes. Sienna is ongeveer een half uurtje rijden.
- Het domein is geheel omheind en goed beveiligd via 2 toegangspoorten. Vooraan bij de eerste toegangspoort woont de beheerder Muhammed. Hij is dagelijks ergens op het domein aanwezig of ter beschikking voor vragen of problemen. Hij spreekt inderdaad beperkt Engels, maar in de praktijk kom je er altijd wel uit.
-Het huis zelf is prachtig ingericht, goed meubilair, goede grote bedden, mooi sanitair, ruime kamers, etc. De keuken is erg eenvoudig en de meeste apparatuur is wel aan vervanging toe.
-Het zwembad is fantastisch. Mooi aangelegd, groot van omvang, voldoende ligstoelen en parasols. Mooi aangelegde tuin.
Kortom een prachtige locatie voor een fijne vakantie in Toscane!

Local attractions Vraag of Monica Lapis een avond komt koken op Boratella. Zij heeft een B&B in het dorp en kookt voor mensen op locatie. Ze kan heerlijk koken en is een erg leuke en gezellige Italiaanse dame!
