La Collina is a fantastic property composed of several two people villas set up as suites, and a central kitchen-dining area. It is located in the hills of the central Chianti, only 4km from Castagnoli and 10km from Gaiole in Chianti.
In the spacious garden you will find the pretty irregular shaped pool surrounded with sun loungers and chairs to relax in the sun and enjoy the wonderful landscape. Woods and green hills can be admired from the pool area.
There are 3 buildings on the property, two are separated by a lovely, original stone path. Next to the single floor building which houses one villa and storage areas, there is the outside, stone paved dining area. This is partly shaded by wisteria. It is furnished with two wooden tables and 8 matching wooden chairs.
There is a large kitchen with dining area to the back of the main building, facing towards the pool area. The kitchen was the original cellar and is wonderfully cool in the summer. It is furnished with a traditional Tuscan table with benches and a kitchenette along the back wall. It is equipped with gas hobs, a dishwasher, and under the counter fridge with internal ice box and a separate freezer. There is some work space.
The property has 4 suites with one bedroom and each of the suites have a private entrance . The first is called Mela and it is located in the single floor building. It is a pretty suite with plenty of space. It has a comfortable living area which is graced by a large, original fireplace where a stove has been placed for heating. In a corner are gas hobs while a sink. A small fridge can be found in the hall.
In the centre of the room is a wooden table with two chairs, while a bench rests against a wall and a comfortable, double sofa against another. To one side of this living area there is a short hall leading to a spacious bathroom with bathtub and handheld shower. While a spacious double bedroom is to the other side of the living area.
The second suite Capanna is in the old hay barn and is located near the pool area. It is on two floors, outside the lower floor is a flag stone terrace - five steps down - with table and a couple of chairs which look towards the pool area which is only a few metres away. Inside is an open plan room.
Along the other wall, facing the kitchenette is a modern wooden dining table and chairs. Next to this is a comfortable corner sofa. The room has a lovely warm and bright atmosphere due to the terracotta floor, wooden ceiling and two glass doors on either end of the room. The bathroom with shower and two sinks completes the ground floor. An open staircase, not suitable for young children, leads to up to the mezzanine floor.
On the first floor is the sleeping area with a second lounge. The room is paved in wood and has a double bed with double door wardrobe to one side. While the two double sofas face the large window which looks out towards the pool area and the views beyond. Double doors lead out to a covered terrace with a wicker chair ideal to relax in the cool shade. This is the only suite that has air-conditioning.
Niki is the third suite of the property. It is located on the ground floor of the main building. Inside is a cosy lounge with the original terracotta floor and ceiling of terracotta and wooden beams. A comfortable double sofa sits next to a large double door wardrobe while a wooden table with four chairs rest against the opposite wall.
The unusual bedroom has the original, restored feeding trough along the back wall and acting as the headboard. The floor is pave in stone and terracotta. The furnishings include a wooden double bed and a chest of drawers. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The final suite of the property is also on the ground floor of the main building. It is the apartment Julia, which has a small private flag stone terrace with a couple of wicker chairs. Inside is an open plan room which has a double sofa and a wooden table with two chairs. Passing under a terracotta arch is the double bedroom. The wardrobe is in the living area. Completing this suite is a bathroom with shower.
The owners have an apartment on the first floor, however they do not stay at the property when guests occupy it.

Tolle freistehende Finca mit großem Gelände und traumhaftem Blick über die Landschaft. Unsere Gruppe von 8 Leuten (aus drei Generationen) hatte ausreichend Platz sich auch mal aus dem Weg zu gehen, aber auch gemeinschaftlich zu essen.

Das Grundstück bietet ausreichend sonnige und schattige Plätzchen, sowie zum spielen. Auch unser Hund hat sich sehr wohl gefühlt.

Der Pool ist zwar ein wenig kalt, aber großartig! Er wird alle zwei Tage von Pierro sauber gemacht.

Das Gelände ist sehr gepflegt, die ganze Finca hat den Charakter eines eigenen kleinen Dorfes.

Die Suite Capanna bietet ausreichend Platz und einen traumhaften Blick sowie ein sehr bequemes Bett.

Suite Mela ist urig und gemütlich. Am Fenster kann man die reifen und sehr leckeren Feigen direkt vom Baum pflücken.

Die Küche ist ebenfalls sehr gemütlich. Dort steht der einzige Fernseher der gesamten Anlage.

Hausmeister Pierro hat sich schnell und zuverlässig um die aufgetretenen kleineren Probleme mit dem Strom und der Herdplatte gekümmert.

Durch den eigenen Brunnen wird die Finca mit Trinkwasser in Mineralwasserqualität versorgt.
Der Essplatz im Freien war so weit von der Küche entfernt, dass man ihn praktisch nicht nutzen konnte.

Wenn man nicht ein paar Brocken italienisch kann, ist man mit dem Hausmeister Pierro aufgeschmissen, der ausschließlich italienisch spricht. Ich muss jedoch zugeben, dass die sprachliche Vermittlung durch den Eigentümer angeboten und von uns nicht genutzt wurde.

Durch den recht abenteuerlichen Zufahrtsweg (von der Landstrasse beim Kilometerstein 7-III abbiegen und danach 1,8 km zum Teil recht steile Schotterpiste) hat man die Finca bei der Anreise schlecht gefunden und man lag weit weg von allem (die Fahrt zum 10 Kilometer entfernten niedlichen Gaiole dauert ca. 30 Minuten).

Alle Suiten haben zwar eigene Küchen, das Geschirr dort war jedoch bei Belegung als "La Collina 8" weg gesperrt, so dass ausschließlich die Gemeinschaftsküche genutzt wurde. Bei Belegung mit 8 Personen war die Ausstattung der Küche (Teller, Tassen, Gläser, Pfannen) knapp bemessen.

Die Apartments Niki und Julia sind recht dunkel und waren ein wenig muffig, die Bäder haben keine Fenster.

Die Einschränkung in der Bewertung des Preis-Leistungsverhältnisses und des Komforts ergibt sich aus den unterschiedlichen Standards in den 4 Suiten sowie der begrenzten Küchenausstattung.

Die Lage wurde im Durchschnitt von uns als "gut" bewertet. Für Ruhesuchende, die einen tollen Ausblick und ein abkühlendes Windchen zu schätzen wissen, ist die Lage auf dem Hügel "Ausgezeichnet". Für Leute, die Abends gerne noch mal mit einem Eis durch die Stadt bummeln und nicht bei jedem Einkauf auch schon für die nächsten Tage mit planen möchten "mangelhaft".

Die versprochene Waschmaschine war zur Reparatur.
Local attractions Siena liegt gut eine Autostunde entfernt. San Gimignano 1,5 h. Unser Lieblingssupermarkt war der Coop in Montevarchi ( ca. 50 Minuten mit dem Auto), der alles bietet, was das Herz begehrt. Der Coop in Gaiole ist nicht viel größer als ein Wohnzimmer.

Excellent accueil
Le calme, la tranquillité, l'espace
La situation géographique par rapport aux excursions possibles était très bien
L'entretien était très bien assuré ( piscine)

1- L'accès difficile en voiture ( cela est dit brièvement dans le descriptif ) Il serait bien d'insister davantage ne serait ce que pour des raisons de sécurité
2 -Informations erronées dans le descriptif sur les services proposés:
- pas d'accès à internet ce qui peut, selon les activités professionnelles, poser problème
- pas de lave linge à disposition
3- Deux des suites (Niki et Julia) présentaient une odeur d'humidité telle qu'il a fallu laver tous les vêtements au retour !!!
4- Pas de grande table familiale pour se retrouver pour les repas AVEC DE LA LUMIERE . Le coin repas extérieur proposé était très charmant mais pas de lumière pour le soir
5 Equipement pour la cuisine très limité - Nous avons été obligé d'acheter des plats pour le four ( même si à cette saison on cuisine légérement)

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

15.09.2015
As in the villa description, the approach road - last 1.8km unpaved, very steep in areas, not recommended for sports cars. Internet is via a pen drive with weekly charge of 25 Euros. The washing machine is available on site - the key is with the caretaker. The owner apologises for the lack of outside lighting. This will be installed ready for next season. The kitchen is equipped for 8 people but the owner will add further dishes, glasses and pots.
