Canonica di Vertine, Vertine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

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

One for history lovers. Canonica di Vertine is an extraordinary property with a deep history, as one would expect from its setting in the medieval hamlet of Vertine. But while many of our properties have lovely original features, few have their own religious frescoes. Yet that’s just what guests will be able to enjoy at this atmospheric Tuscan church house, ideal for large families or groups of friends, close to the market towns of Gaiole and Radda and in easy reach of Siena.

On first view, it’s clear this building is special, with its arch and round windows. Inside, the sensitive restoration has retained its historic assets while creating a stylish holiday home that has the feel of a townhouse, yet offers a tranquil, rural retreat. Many rooms share a view over the hamlet’s main square or the rolling Chianti hills, while all the first-floor double bedrooms benefit from private lounges – quiet spaces where guests can relax independently. Outside, the covered terrace, with built-in barbecue, provides a shady place to dine outdoors, while the private Jacuzzi pool in the lawned and paved garden is the place to take a cooling dip.

Our Thoughts
This is such a special property. The subtle restoration has created cool, atmospheric lodgings in the heart of a traditional Tuscan hamlet. In the communal areas, modern touches such as flat-screen TVs sit alongside the historic costumes that adorn the walls – though guests will probably spend more time admiring the beautiful frescoes. We particularly like the fact that the double bedrooms come with their own adjoining lounges.

Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms, all en-suite. Guests are offered a 10 per cent discount on lunches, dinners and the use of the spa at nearby Castello di Spaltenna and its Michelin-star restaurant, headed up by chef Vincenzo Guarino. He and his staff can also prepare private dinners at the villa (book in advance).
