Casa Girasole, Vertine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people 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.

Ground Floor


Sofa, sideboard, coffee table, main entrance.

Fully equipped, plus table and chairs.

Double bed (cannot be converted into twins), armchair, wardrobe, chest of drawers.

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.

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.

Ground Floor

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

Quand nous avons réservé nous ne savions pas que nous aurions notre bébé avec nous pour ce voyage. Si nous avions su, nous aurions privilégié une maison plus grande. Cette maison, bien que parfaite pour un couple, était un peu petite avec un bébé. Malgré le fait que nous avions un lit bébé et une chaise haute à disposition, le fait que la terrasse ne soit pas adjacente nous a empêché d'en profiter pleinement car le babyphone n'allait pas jusque là.
Cependant, la villa est très agréable, très propre et très bien située. Il y fait très frais, ce qui est un gros avantage vu les chaleurs locales. La maison est très bien équipée. Le petit village de Vertine est magnifique et très calme. Tout les services nécessaires sont à disposition dans les environs. Et la terrasse avec le jacuzzi offre une vue sublime sur les vignes et les oliviers.
Nous conseillons chaleureusement cette location pour des couples.
Local attractions - le restaurant Lo Sfizio Di Bianchi (restaurant - pâtisserie) sur la place principale de Gaiole in Chianti. - Enoteca de Gaiole in Chianti : très bons conseils et en français - Badia a Coltibuono: charmante petite abbaye - visite guidée, dégustation de vins et d'huile d'olive. Notre coup de coeur! - Castello di Ama: Dégustation de vins
