Borratella is a luxury Tuscan villa located in the heart of the Chianti a short distance from Brolio castle and Gaiole in Chianti. The villa is located on a wine estate so surrounded by its vineyards and the rolling Chianti hills covered with forests beyond.
The pool is located down some large stone steps from a loggia. It's in a fantastic position and well maintained with a lovely lawn and garden around it. It looks out to the vineyards and pretty views.
The villa is entered into a small hall. Like the rest of the villa, it has a tradition Tuscan villa ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams. It's furnished with several antique pieces. Off this is a bathroom with a Victorian bath with handheld shower fitting, there is also a separate shower.
Off the room and down a couple of steps is the large kitchen which has a pretty floor of terracotta and wood. Along two walls is the kitchen unit, which has gas hobs, an oven and dishwasher, the large double fridge/freezer is in a small pantry off the kitchen. A tradition wood burning stove is to one side, this cannot be used. In the centre of the room is a long wooden table which can seat 10 people. Off the pantry is a laundry and a w.c.
Passing under a wooden arch is a lounge, furnished with a triple and double sofa plus an armchair. These are huddled around a large, original Tuscan fireplace which can be used on the colder days in Winter.
Between the kitchen and pantry there is a door out to the large, covered loggia which is furnished with a huge long table with benches and lights above it. To one side is a large fireplace to barbeque, next to this is a stone sink. This is a fantastic place for dining. Over the low stone wall around the loggia there are views of the pool, garden, vineyards and olive groves.
On the ground floor there is a bedroom which is in a small detached annex. The room can be accessed by some external stairs which lead onto a small internal balcony or from a door from the garden. Inside there is a little hall of which is a bathroom with shower, and a pretty double bedroom furnished with a TV, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a writing desk.
From the entrance hall there are stairs to the first floor, where there is a landing. Off this to the left is a huge suite done in white and turquoise. It has a lovely wooden floor and furnished with a triple wardrobe, a couple of armchairs, TV, chest of drawers and a large double bed. Off the back of the room is a spacious bathroom with large shower.
To the right of the landing is a second lounge which has a tv. It has a lovely travertine floor and is furnished with a triple and double sofa and two armchairs. From this room there is access to a small loggia.
Off the lounge is a twin bedroom done in white and green. There is a small TV and wardrobe. In the room is a decorative fireplace. En-suite is a big bathroom with large shower.
From the landing and up some wooden stairs there is the tower floor. Immediately at the top of the stairs there are several armchairs and immediately in front is a glass enclosed bathroom with shower. From this little room there is a bedroom with a king-size double bed. The room has a couple of armchairs around a coffee table and a wardrobe. Like the other bedrooms it also has a TV.
The double bedrooms cannot be made into twins and the twin cannot be made into a double.
Borratella is a luxury property, maintained to an excellent standard. The caretaker lives on the estate, a short distance away from the villa. He can be easily contacted for any queries.

Electric fans are available on request.

Pool Info

Excellent views of the surrounding Chianti hills covered in a dense forest can be enjoyed while relaxing by the pool side or in the cool water. Immediately around the villa there are the property's vineyards which can also be seen from the pool area. To one side of the pool there are roman steps to enter the crystal water.

Fantastic villa! Clean, spacious, and well looked after, amid beautiful scenery, in the quiet countryside, yet only a short distance from amenities.
Local attractions Gaiole offered all the basic needs, coop shop, cafe, restaurants, and shops. The villa is also centrally located for access to the many winery, and further afield, day trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa, and Assis are possible too.

Lovely villa, great pool, beautiful position, lovely accommodation
It was very expensive for one week without flights, but with more people it would be more affordable..
Local attractions In the local village , the austeria, the pizza restaurant were both very good. Up the valley, in villa de secci?

Man kann gar nicht genug schwärmen:
- Der wirklich unglaubliche Pool war einer der vielen Highlights von Borratella. Mit Mosaikfliesen gepflastert, kristallklares Wasser, perfekte Größe zum Schwimmen und Plantschen. Einfach perfekt!
- Der Blick und die Ruhe sind von der ersten Minute an einfach nur erholsam.
- Die tolle Innenarchitektur, die hochwertig ausgestatteten Räume und Bäder mit viel Liebe zum Detail.
Was auch toll ist: Die Villa ist für unterschiedlichste Gästekonstellationen geeignet. Für befreundete Paare bietet sie ausreichend Rückzugsmöglichkeiten, da praktisch jeder der vier Schlafräume sein eigenes Bad UND einen eigenen Sitzbereich hat.Aber auch Familien mit Kindern kommen voll auf ihre Kosten. Für gemeinsame Essen steht u.a. eine tolle Holzpergola draußen zur Verfügung. Hier kann man sogar im August in der Mittagshitze schön draußen sitzen.
Alles war toll!!!
Hier nur ein paar Infos, die mir wichtig erscheinen:
Gaiole und Radda sind innerhalb von 10-15 min Autofahrt zu erreichen - allerdings alles auf sehr kurvigen Strassen mit reichlich Wildwechsel (Rehe, Hirsche, Wildschweine...). Vor allem in der Dunkelheit kann das Fahren etwas anstrengend sein.
Wir waren überrascht rund um Borratella eine etwas rauere Toskana zu finden, als die, die wir bisher kannten (Florenz, Greve in Chianti, San Gimignano etc.). Es ist sehr waldig, saftig grün auch im August und die Hügel eher steil. Wunderschön, doch etwas einsam.
Local attractions 1. La Vin Osteria an der Strada Regionale 429 kurz vor Radda in Chianti. Toller Familienbetrieb, leckeres Essen, freundliche Bedienung. 2. Castello di Brolio ist einen Besuch wert und liegt etwa 5 Fahrminuten von der Villa entfernt. 3. Siena! 4. Die Gässchen von Radda in Chianti

Alles.
De ligging is prachtig, het huis is heel plezierig ingedeeld.
Het zwembad is heerlijk, ook de voorzieningen daarvoor, zoals de buitendouche, ligbedden, parasols, enz.
De sleutelbewaarder/beheerder Mohammed is fantastisch en zeer behulpzaam. Helemaal top!
Ook fijn dat er een grote waslijn is en een wasmachine.
Wij hebben een topweek gehad!
Local attractions Het ligt ca. 7 km. vanaf het dorp Gaiole waar een goede supermarkt is, waar alles te krijgen is. Ook is er een fijne pizzaria en osteria aan het begin van Gaiole waar je goed kunt parkeren voor de deur. Het is een aanrader om Castello di Brollio een bezoek te brengen. Prachtig uitzicht en verrukkelijke wijnen..... De osteria bij Brollio is fantastisch en dit is maar ca. 4 km. vanaf Borratella.

The house, amenities, rooms and on-suite bathrooms, service and setting are fantastic. We loved spending time sitting outside in the numerous seating options and spending time in the stunning pool. Exploring the area from this central location was so easy too.
For Summer it would be worth putting Fans in a couple of the rooms if people want to sleep with the shutters closed.
Local attractions Castello Di Ama Restuarant and Wines, and the town of Radda were by far our favourites!

Nous avons adoré la vue, la beauté de la maison, la superbe piscine, la tranquillité des lieux, la proximité de Gaiole.
Local attractions Le village de Volpaia est ravissant, avec un excellent restaurant sur une terrasse superbe (La Bottega di Volpaia). Et la route pour accéder à Volpaia est magnifique.

We loved everything about the villa. We had 4 couples and everyone had their own bathroom and sitting room. The pool was amazing! Mahommad was very helpful and attentive. Marco the Manager was very helpful and organised a chef one night for us and we had a special experience learning to cook in the comfort if our own villa. Thank you to everyone who made our stay so special.
The only suggestion I would make would be to have a clothes dryer for the days you cannot hang out the washing.
Local attractions We hired Vespa bikes from the local town of Gaiole which was fantastic!

Trouver un photographe le jour de notre arrivée en train de faire une vidéo pour la villa,
Voir le gardien entrer tous les jours dans un petit bureau situé au cœur de la villa ou nous demander une information alors que nous étions à la piscine; ce n'était pas méchant (et la personne est vraiment serviable) mais nous n'avons guère eu d'intimité, assez désagréable, sans parler des rondes autour de la maison en voiture, probablement pour surveiller la vigne mais là encore au détriment de notre intimité.
Voir débarquer un agent immobilier ( qui ne comprenant pas l'espagnol a demandé à ma fille de servir d'interprète) pour faire visiter la villa 2 jours avant notre départ et demander à visiter les chambres; heureusement son client était gêné et a renoncé.
Se voir réclamer 25 euros pour un package incluant du papier toilette qui devrait être fourni gratuitement pour le prix de location de la villa, incluant un café de 3ème ordre.
Cuisine très insuffisamment équipée en plat et casserole; évier plat peu pratique.

Lokatie, omgeving, goed verzorgd huis. Fijne vakantie gehad in een prachtig huis/zwembad.
Er is niet veel te klagen. Als ik toch moet iets moet melden dan is het wellicht de afstand naar winkels ed. En er zijn opstartproblemen gehad met WiFi. De sleutelbewaarde heeft er alles aan gedaan om dit op orde te krijgen. Is uiteindelijk gelukt.
