Oliveta, Rietine - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 to 7 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Oliveta’s hillside position is hard to beat, offering far-reaching views of the olive groves from which the villa takes its name. Its location on the doorstep of lively Gaiole, one of the main market towns of Chianti, makes this a fantastic choice if you wish to mix rural seclusion and time spent mingling with the locals. Anyone wishing to tour the vineyards of this world-famous wine-making region will find plenty of opportunities to taste wine and olive oil at nearby cellar doors.

Oliveta sleeps six to seven, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor, so could suit an older or less mobile member of your group. Arched beamed ceilings and terracotta and terrazzo floors, wood-framed tapestries and pictures keep the atmosphere attractively traditional inside. In the grounds, the private pool is a lovely place to relax, surrounded by its own olive grove and fragrant Mediterranean shrubs, and there’s a small garden, set with a table and chairs, at the front of the house, too.

Our Thoughts
You could be forgiven for deliberating over whether to relax in this villa’s elegant interiors or soak up the views from the poolside garden, full of colourful potted plants and silvery olive trees. As if encouragement to linger longer outside were needed, there’s a barbecue and a covered gazebo with table and chairs for either a feast or an evening aperitivo. Yet, Siena and Florence are tempting (and easy) day trips.

Notes
Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, two en-suite. Electric fans are placed in all bedrooms. Oliveta is attached to a neighbouring property and is part of a traditional cluster of houses, however it remains completely private.

Pool
The rectangular pool has an even depth throughout and metal ladder steps leading down to the water. The paved terrace, which gives way to lawn, is well furnished with sun loungers and parasols and includes a shower area.
Pool size: 10m x 4m, 1.4m deep. Open mid May through October, weather permitting.

Das Haus ist wunderschön und für 6-7 Personen auch groß genug.
Der Pool ist ein einziger Traum - groß, klares Wasser mit einem herrlichen Garten drumherum und genügend Liegestühlen.
Vom großen Feigenbaum im Garten darf man sich gern bedienen.
Die Lage - genial. Von Haus und Pool blickt man auf toskanische Hügel.
Rietine ist ein kleiner sehr ruhiger Ort und bietet viel Ruhe und Erholung.
Die Besitzer leben nebenan - sind super freundlich und halten sich komplett zurück, so dass man das Gefühl hat, ganz allein hier zu sein. Vanessa, die sehr gut englisch spricht, kommt ab und zu vorbei. Ihre Mutter und Großmutter (mit beiden habe ich italienisch gesprochen) sind vor Ort und kümmern sich um alles. Die Oma brachte uns sogar mal kleine selbstgebackene süße Teilchen vorbei, also sehr lieb!
Der einzige Nachteil von Oliveta war für uns die vielen Steckmücken und Bremsen. Im Haus waren wir verschont, weil Gott sei Dank an jedem Fenster Insektengitter angebracht sind. Aber am Pool war es zum Teil heftig, wenn man aus dem Wasser kommt und sofort von einigen Viechern attackiert wird. Den schönen Freisitz im Garten neben den Pool haben wir daher auch nur sehr selten genutzt, denn trotz des dort angebrachten elektrischen Fliegenfängers und obwohl wir eingesprüht waren mit Insektenabwehrmitteln wurden wir heftig verstochen.
Also alles in allem ein Haus mit sehr vielen Pluspunkten und nur einem Makel.... :-)
Local attractions Der Vespa-Verleih in Radda ist sehr zu empfehlen. Vor Ort bekamen wir super Tipps für einen wunderschöne Tagestour und hatten mächtig Spaß. Das Weingut Rietine direkt nebenan wird von einem Schweizer-Ehepaar geführt. Diese sind sehr nett, erklären gern und zeigen den kompletten Wein-Herstellungsporzeß und geben eine nette Weinprobe. Die Weine sind sehr lecker und ein Besuch lohnt sich auf alle Fälle!
