Capanna Vertine, Vertine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 2 bathrooms 2 people Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

A converted Tuscan barn made just for two, Capanna Vertine is a romantic retreat in the stone hamlet of Vertine, set in the park of one of its two castles. This is an ideal base in the heart of Chianti country for a couple who wish to explore this famous wine region – a complimentary wine-tasting is even included in your stay. Spend the days discovering the historic town of Gaiole and the cities of Siena and Florence. Or take advantage of some of the activities on offer locally – from golf and tennis, to mountain-biking and horse-riding.

But don’t forget to carve out some relaxation time – the lush garden and pool area are the place to drink in the views of vineyards and olive groves towards Radda. The pine and oak trees of the Castello Vertine park provide welcome shade and there are two terraces for dining outdoors. Inside, the barn has been converted in typical Tuscan style, featuring wooden beams, terracotta tiles and traditional furnishings, and offers more than enough space for two.

Our Thoughts
This romantic cottage, with its lovely private pool, is just perfect for couples looking for a peaceful escape, thanks to its situation in the gardens of the Castello Vertine. We particularly love the cascading waterfall feature, which offers a tranquil soundtrack that guests can unwind to. Yet there’s also plenty to do nearby, which means guests can create their own holiday itinerary that easily combines recreation and relaxation.

One bedroom. Two bathrooms, one en-suite. The owners live in a private apartment in the Castello Vertine estate, but the pool is reserved for guests’ use only. There is no fence around the cottage. The first-floor bedroom is reached via a narrow spiral staircase. The owner can arrange complimentary wine tastings at one of two local wineries and guests get a 10 per cent discount at two local restaurants, please enquire for details.
Approach road: all paved

Ground Floor

First Floor

The large, irregular-shaped pool, with waterfall feature, is discreetly tucked away on a lower level than the cottage and other buildings in the hamlet. Steps lead down from the communal gardens to the pool, which is surrounded by stone paving, and accessed by metal steps. There is a bathroom with shower and WC next to the pool. Pool size: 16m x 8m, 1.2m to 3m deep. Open from May to September, weather permitting.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket.

Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​

Le lieu est magique dans la journée mais pas agréable le soir car tres isolé dans un bois et pas de lumières à l'extérieur ni autour de la piscine pour pouvoir profiter des soirées dehors ou meme dîner dehors. La piscine est grande tres belle idéalement située mais pas suffisamment entretenue: sale et présence d'algues
Matériel de cuisine très rudimentaire : meme pas un tire bouchon
Cadre très rustique mais idéal pour le calme et le repos. Tres belle vue
Vertine est un tres beau hameau
To Tuscany team comments for this review:27.09.2017
Thank you for your feedback. The owner apologises for the issues with the pool and pool lighting. The pool maintenance person was unavailable for personal reasons so the issues were not acted upon as quickly as they should have been. The owner confirms that the pool will now be closed and full maintenance and repair will be put into place. The utensils will also be checked and replenished if necessary.
