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.

The Villa was lovely and quiet. Very clean and inviting. Lots of room for everyone. The king size beds were just right and having the extra "mother in law" quarters came in very handy. The location was great and the being surrounded by vineyards was so beautiful. The pool was very clean and inviting. I wish the weather was warmer so we could have taken advantage more.
Local attractions Many wineries and olive oil manufactures were close so a day or two of tastings are in easy reach. Assisi, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena are within an easy drive. We ordered beautiful hand painted ceramics from Rampini in Radda, We had the best meal at La Vin Osteria in Villa.

Sauberkeit innen gut, Pflege außen nicht gut. Verwalter war immer sofort zur Stelle, jedoch wollte er Handwerker wegen diversen defekten Sachen bestellen , verständlicherweise hat man dazu keine Lust in einer Woche, die ja eigentlich nur auf Grund der so späten Anreise und frühen Abreise sich auf 6 Tage reduziert. Donnerstag kam ohne Ankündigung der Poolservice, von 9.30 bis 11.50 h der Pool war nicht zu benutzen, danach zu viel Chlor, Kinder hatten Ausschlag.

Thank you for your comments. The property manager was sorry to hear that you felt there were intrusions. But due to the unusually high temperatures in the heatwave, it was necessary to take extra care of the pool.

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.
