Petralexa, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

2 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 4 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This renovated stone barn set on a hillside in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine country, has sweeping views of vineyard-clad hills. With two double bedrooms and one twin, the property can accommodate up to six guests in cosy spaces, ideal for catching up with close friends or family. The rustic stone exterior is atmospherically revealed in parts of the kitchen and there are traditional wooden beams and terracotta tiles throughout. You may have to toss a coin for the first-floor bedroom with its glass double doors opening onto a furnished terrace.

The lovely grounds with ancient oaks and pretty shrubs have two terraces for guests to enjoy al fresco feasts and holiday toasts. One has a table and chairs under the shade of a huge parasol with a stone barbecue, while the other to the rear of the villa is more about idling, with its sofa and chairs. There’s a gazebo midway between the house and the private pool, too, another shady outdoor space. Although Siena and Florence are both easily reached by car in less than 45 minutes, Lecchi is the closest village with a grocery shop and restaurant, plus there are vineyards nearby for a wine-tasting.

Our Thoughts
There’s a pared-back quality to this rural villa, which makes it particularly appealing for lazy summer days under the Tuscan sun. While it’s supremely comfy insider, we’re sure you will want to make the most of all the different spaces outdoors from which to admire the beautiful countryside that rolls away from its boundaries. We love the hammock, a particularly tranquil spot.

Three bedrooms. Four bathrooms, two en-suite. One of the double bedrooms can be converted to twins, please request at the time of booking if required.
Approach road: 1.5 km, unpaved and in good condition
Parking: 2 spaces on site.

Set slightly away from the house, in a corner of the garden, the kidney-shaped, raised pool is reached by a flight of stone steps and is protected by mature hedgerow and trees. A lawn area to one side is furnished with sun beds and to the other there’s a stone-built shower.
Pool size: 10m x 5m, 1.2m deep. Open April through October, weather permitting.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket. By contacting your To Tuscany villa specialist in advance and providing them with a shopping list you will find the items in your villa on arrival. Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​
