Casa Primula, Vertine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

3 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Here’s a novel proposition, a villa that can be divided into two apartments, with a third set of lodgings just down the road in a converted wine cellar. Could this provide the perfect solution for you and friends or family, seeking somewhere to holiday together that will also afford a good degree of privacy? You’ll find this flexible space in the hamlet of Vertine, a beautiful cluster of medieval stone buildings not far from Siena, where you can become one of the locals, albeit briefly, and truly immerse yourself in Tuscan life.

There’s much to recommend about pretty Casa Primula, with its terracotta tiles, exposed stone and wooden beams. At the main house, the two apartments can be kept separate or joined up via an interconnecting door, as you prefer, and the converted wine cellar is also self-contained. Meanwhile, everyone can come together in the main house’s large communal lounge and kitchen, on the terraces, at the lovely private pool or even at the private jacuzzi for 6. Now that’s a recipe for perfect harmony.

Our Thoughts
We love the flexibility offered by this villa, with its mirror-image apartments in the main house and a third self-contained space just around the corner. It’s such a good choice for three couples holidaying together, with each apartment just the right size for two, and the extra lounge and kitchen allowing everyone to get together when it suits. Plus, you don’t just get a pool at Casa Primula, there’s a Jacuzzi for all of you to enjoy, too.

The two floors in the main house do not have internal stairs and can only be entered from outside. The two apartments on the first floor of the main house have an interconnecting door. The main house and the apartment are situated 100 metres apart.

The pool is set in gardens next to the main house with views of the surrounding countryside, yet screened by an olive grove for privacy. It has a diving board and the water is entered via Roman or metal steps. The surrounding paved area is furnished with sunloungers and parasols and has an open-air shower – there’s another shower, with WC, on the side of the main house. All guests can use the jacuzzi, situated 100 metres from the converted wine cellar, situated on a higher lever above the main house with stunning views. Also available here is a table and chairs, more sunloungers and a barbecue nearby. The pool measures 5x10 mtrs with a depth of 1.3 – 2.6 mtrs. It is open from May to September weather permitting.

The villa is located in the tiny hamlet of Vertine, and it was like staying in an old medieval town. The experience was one of a kind, and the Villa was situated overlooking the neighboring vineyards. The hosts were very accommodating, even providing complimentary pastries upon arrival, which were delicious. The neighboring towns of Radda and Gaiole provide a nice little trip to grab a quick bite or pick up some things to cook on the grill or in the spacious kitchen. If you like to grill, this is definitely the place to try your hand at cooking up some bisteca a fiorintina. The layout is a bit different, with the grill and hot tub being on a separate level from the main house and the third bedroom actually being a separate apartment in the town, but neither caused a problem and in some ways added to the charm. We had a wonderful time in our week here, and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to experience the Tuscan countryside and all it has to offer!
