The large pool is located down a few steps immediately next to the buildings, it's surrounded by a wooden fence with three gates. A pretty pine forest bordering the pool area provides shade.

This wonderful Tuscan hamlet is well positioned in the Chianti hills above Gaiole and about 3.5km from a little village where there is a restaurant. It's surrounded by a cooling forest which keeps it fresh during the hot Tuscan days.

All the individual eating areas are open to the hamlet grounds which makes this the ideal property for those who seek contact with other guests. There is also a quiet road which passes the hamlet, however occasional traffic can be heard.
