Wir haben mit zwei Familien mit 8 Personen, davon 4 Kinder (13,12, und 2x 10 Jahre) eine fantastische Woche erlebt. Das Haus bietet alles was das Herz begehrt. Die Poollandschaft still genial für alt und jung. Im Haus waren selbst bei über 40 Grad, auch dank Klimaanlage angenehme Temeperaturen. Die überdachte Terasse mit großem Steintisch ist genial und auch die Loungeecke sensationell. Der Gemüsegarten und die frischen Eiern von den nahegelegenen Hühnerstall runden alles ab. Ein fantastisches Panaroma über die toskanische Landschaft bietet sich ebenso.

We had an unbelievably relaxing stay at Sestuccia 8! We were a group of 3 couples and one child (10 yrs). We were met by Luciano and his daughter, Brigitta, who welcomed us to the property and showed us around and pointed out where the hens were, so we could help ourselves to fresh eggs every day - as well as the veggies in the vegetable garden. The Villa itself was amazing and catered for our all our needs. We spent many days just lazing around the pool and using the outdoor seating area for brunch and socialising. The hot tub / sauna / steam room were great fun and we found it difficult dragging ourselves away from the property to view the nearby attractions! When we did venture out, we visited the nearby places of Siena (amazing), Radda, the Prada shop in Montevarchi and Wineries (Castello di Meleto was excellent).

We used the nearby town of Gaiole for supplies and did daily runs to the local Coop for bread, milk and essentials.

We can't speak highly enough of the friendliness of Luciano and Brigitta who were so helpful during our stay and would definitely consider returning.
Local attractions We purchased our meat from the local butcher in Gaiole (only a five minute drive from Villa) - Chini Macelleria. Fantastic cuts of meat and excellent on the BBQ at Sestuccia! We purchased our daily supplies from the COOP which had most things required. One cafe / restaurant we came across (just opposite the COOP), was Le cose Buone http://www.gastronomialecosebuone.it/ and owned by Andrea. Amazing service and the food was outstanding - don't be put off by first appearances!

Das Haus entsprach absolut unseren Erwartungen, es ist genau wie auf den Bildern dargestellt. Der Check erfolgte zur vereinbarten Zeit und war sehr informativ. Das Haus hat eine sehr gute Größe (wir waren 6 Erwachsene und vier Kinder) für eine große Gruppe. Die Ausstattung mit Pool, Jaccuzzi, Sauna, Dampfbad sowie ein eigenes Billardzimmer ist wirklich hervorragend und rechtfertigt den Reisepreis durchaus. Ein besonderes Highlight war der hinter dem Haus liegende Gemüsegarten welcher uns hervorragend zur Abendessen Zubereitung diente. Alles in allem war es ein toller Urlaub welchen wir jederzeit in Sestuccia 8 wiederholen würden. Einzig und allein die Anfahrt zum Haus (steile, ca. 200m lange Schotterstrasse) gestaltet sich etwas schwierig für normale Fahrzeuge. Wir hatten unsere Motorräder (Harley´s) dabei, hatten sie aber aufgrund der Anfahrt zum Haus nicht nutzen können.
Local attractions Der Ort Gaiole liegt nur wenigen Minuten vom Haus entfernt, dort findet man nette kleine Restaurants und einen Coop Supermarkt. Ebenfalls nur 10 Minuten entfernt befindet sich der Ort Rads, welcher ein sehr schönes Zentrum, ebenfalls mit vielen Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten hat.

Thank you for your comments. The small section of unpaved road might be challenging for motorbikes, especially a bike like a Harley. We are pleased that this would not prevent you from coming back!

We had an excellent stay at Sestuccia 8. We had 5 adults, one 18 yr old and one 13 yr old. Luciano greeted us at the villa and gave us a tour. Luciano was very warm and friendly. There is a Turkish bath, sauna, pool, whirlpool, outdoor seating area and table, wood burning grill and a garden where you can pick vegetables. In the inside, there is an updated kitchen, family area with a tv with cable and new couches. There are 4 bedrooms and bathrooms. There are air conditioning units in bedrooms and in kitchen area. We spent many mornings and nights hanging outside on the new outdoor couches. There is also a chicken coop down the road and we collected eggs. The villa was really clean. Luciano stopped by frequently to see if we had any issues. We were very comfortable and enjoyed staying there.
Local attractions Gaiole was a few kilometers away which was very convenient. We went into town and went to the local grocery store (COOP) and ate at pizza at a local restaurant. We bought steaks from the butcher and grilled dinner. We took a few days trips. We went to Siena, Florence, Prada outlet, Radda (spa) , Vinci and Castello Di Ami for wine tasting. The montevarchi train station is about 25 min from the villa and very easy to park at (parking lot across the street) and to get to. We rented 2 cars from Europcar in Siena. Note: Europcar is only open until 1 PM on Saturdays.

Immaculate property in stunning surroundings. The owner couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable. He even treated my father and I to some local salumi from the butcher when we bumped into him in Gaiole.
Local attractions I would highly recommend a short drive up to Il Ristoro di Ama for lunch and to sample their wines.That was our favourite dining experience. Generally a great location to explore this part of Italy.

Our stay in Sestuccia was terrific! We found the villa to be well situated, restful and the grounds well kept. Luciano, the owner, takes pride in the property and pays attention to the details to ensure your stay is enjoyable. The consensus opinion of our family (six adults, two children) is that the pictures do not do justice to the villa or the grounds. On our arrival, Luciano provided a tour of the villa as well as the surrounding property pointing out the garden, chicken coop and other facilities. Grapes were abundant and he said we could take as many as we wanted as well as vegetables, herbs and eggs. He also obtained baby cots and infant table seat since we needed two for our two little ones. We ate in restaurants in the area, brought chefs in for several meals, travelled by car to numerous towns & wineries near and far, and used the train station in Montevarchi for trips to Florence and Rome. Parking is free and we kept the cars in the lot overnight for our excursion to Rome via high speed train. The Prada Outlet as well as a large Coop for groceries & sundries are located in the town as well. Warm sunny days and cool nights, blue skies, grapes being harvested and tranquil location made for a very difficult departure.
Local attractions We ate in many restuarants and enjoyed Le Contrade in Gaiole (it's outside the town center). The food and service was good to excellent and the wine list was expansive. Interestingly this resaturant has a pizza restaurant & bar on the first floor which we tried on another night and all enjoyed. We purchased steaks from Chini Macelleria in Gaiole to cook on the Sestuccia property wood grill and used fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden to round out the meal. Meal was excellent. Also purchased some Tuscan salami from Chini and it was tasty. There's a small Coop in Gaiole and you can find many items you may need during your stay. Purchased wine and cheese at La Cantinetta del Chianti in Gaiole based on the owner, Ricardo's sound recommendations. We also enjoyed Rocca di Castagnoli & Cantalici wineries because they were close and family friendly. They are minutes from the property.

The villa is very comfortable and the outside area is stunning. The pool, steam room and sauna are all of high quality. It is set on top of a mountain and the area is very beautiful and relaxing . Luciano was an excellent host and he pops by each day to check all is well . We really appreciated the air conditioning as every day was back to back sun and blue sky . We also appreciated the WIFI which worked really well. There is a huge flat screen tv - all programs were in Italian but if you take a lead - it is possible to connect your lap top to the tv and play English films in the evenings !! All bedrooms and bathrooms are of a good size. A great family villa with excellent facilities.
Local attractions The local village - Gaiole is very friendly and has a small supermarket that stocks most things. Siena is half an hour away and Florence an hour . We also found the Prada and Gucci outlet stores close by which I would recommend ! Local restaurants recommended in the villa were all of a high standard and each has its own unique qualities.

Great villa! Beautiful property. Loved the chickens and that we had fresh eggs everyday. Clean. Nice pool. We also had fresh vegetables from the garden. Very nice owners. They were fast in responding via email when we needed a new coffee maker. I would recommend to others.
He only thing they could do better is the directions to the villa. Our drivers had problems finding it. Also the shrubs on the small road to the property needed to be trimmed. Our drivers had their vehicle scratched by them. We had a larger van.
Local attractions Loved Gaiole. Didn't try any restaurants.

Alles, een fantastisch huis, op een fantastische locatie, mooi zwembad (wellicht wat koud) en een geweldig aardige eigenaar Luciano.
Als er iets genoemd moet worden wat tegenvalt aan Sestuccia (wat bijna onmogelijk is), dan zou het kunnen dat het boventerras in de tuin (bij de boom/lamp) snel smerig is. Er lopen veel mieren en er valt veel troep uit de boom, waardoor wij daar niet hebben gezeten, ondanks de mooie plek en het mooie uitzicht. Iets anders is dat de verlichting op het terras een aantal dagen niet heeft gewerkt door de regen/vocht en hierdoor kortsluiting ontstond.
Local attractions Gaiole in Chianti is een fantastisch dorp, ook Radda in Chianti en Greve in Chianti vonden wij fantastisch. Verder mooie uitstapjes gemaakt naar Siena en Florence. Montevarchi en San Giovanni Valdarno kun je de moeite van het bezoeken besparen.
