Casa Girasole, Vertine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Couples will be able to immerse themselves in history at Casa Girasole. This former wine cellar is set in a charming medieval village, in the heart of Chianti, with views across a valley of vineyards and olive groves. This is the perfect base for a couple wishing to tour wine country, with the local market towns of Gaiole, Radda and Castellina close by, and the cities of Florence and Siena within easy reach.

This one-bedroom ground-floor apartment is full of character, with high stone ceilings, brick-edged arched alcoves, and terracotta tile floors. There’s a large open-plan area for relaxing, cooking and dining, and an equally generous-sized bedroom and bathroom. Plus, your nearby private raised terrace offers even more space, equipped with a barbecue, a table and chairs, and sunloungers positioned for prime views of the valley. For a real treat, take a dip in the large private Jacuzzi – it’s all yours.

Our Thoughts
There’s plenty of room for two in this cool retreat from the Tuscan sun. The bright and airy living area and cosy bedroom have attractive reminders of the building’s history, with areas of exposed stone and brick, and are divided by double doors, so you can choose to go open-plan or enjoy some privacy. The outdoor terrace and its views will wow you – it is a real bonus and has been well-designed for eating, lounging and, of course, indulgent dips in the private Jacuzzi.

Notes
The street from which access to the apartment is gained is generally quiet, though a little noise is possible. The outside terrace is about 100 metres from the apartment. Wifi is only available on the terrace.
Parking - On site.

Pool
A private Jacuzzi, large enough for six, is set on the terrace, screened by hedging approximately 100 metres from the apartment.
The Jacuzzi is open from May to October, weather permitting.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, Terrasse mit Whirlpool und Grill absolute Klasse und nur ein Katzensprung von der Unterkunft entfernt. Schöne Aussicht in die Reben und Olivenbäume. Angenehm ruhig und erholsam.
Local attractions Restaurant Il Celliere, an der Via del Castello 2 ist sehr zu empfehlen, Ebenso zu empfehlen die Weinkellerei Cantalici / Società Agricola mit Bioanbau, Führung durch den Weinkeller und Degustation.
