Sestuccia Cantina, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 to 3 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

This romantic contemporary hideaway garners top marks from those who’ve discovered it – including, not surprisingly, a honeymoon couple. Set on a larger property that includes the owners’ home and a small rented cottage, it combines seclusion with views of classic Chianti countryside. Just a short hop from Gaiole, one of the most popular hilltop towns, the villa is ideal for exploring the wine-producing region. However, its charms will encourage you to spend a lot of time here.

Your private pool, set against a sculptural rock wall, is unique. Climbing roses tumble over your terrace; a vineyard edges the garden; cypress trees add elegant punctuation marks. In warm weather, you’re likely to want all your meals al-fresco on the terrace; an open fireplace and dining area indoors are great for cooler spring or autumn evenings. A separate ‘wellness area’ near the villa next to a vineyard of the owner, with a heated Jacuzzi, sunloungers, a changing room, bar fridge and outdoor table and chairs, is an alternative for long, indulgent evenings.

Ground Floor


Sofa, coffee table, sideboard, table, four chairs, well-equipped kitchenette, fireplace, two glass doors to furnished terrace.

Double bed (cannot be converted to twins), wardrobe, chest of drawers.

Our Thoughts
How can you not love this beautifully designed and well-kept villa? It’s so seductive. The private garden, pool, Jacuzzi and views are to die for. It’s eco-friendly: it runs entirely on solar power. It’s very well-positioned for the exploring Siena, Arezzo and Florence, as well as the delights of Chianti’s wineries and small towns. And, as if these ingredients were not enough, you are free to enjoy fresh eggs from the owners’ chicken coop and organic produce from their vegetable garden. This is Tuscany on a plate.

One bedroom. One bathroom. The final 500 metres of the approach road are unpaved. Heating of the Jacuzzi is free. Sestuccia Cantina is perfect for a couple, but a sofa-bed in the lounge can be used for a child. The owners are happy to help should you need any assistance or information, they live in the area.

The chlorine-cleansed pool, a few feet from the front of Sestuccia Cantina, has a paved terracotta surround and adjoining terrace with sunloungers and a small dining area. It is entered by internal steps. Water falls over the rock wall to one side into the pool.  Pool size: 3.5 m x 9 m with a depth of 1,3 m. Open from April till the end of November, wheather permitting.

Die Lage des Hauses ist einmalig. Kein Auto, keine Personen/Nachbarn. Was wir als absolut genial empfanden, dass der Pool direkt vorm Haus war. Mit einem Kind war das sehr vorteilhaft, weil man es immer im Blick hatte. Die Anlage war sehr schön gepflegt. Der Eigentümer Luciano war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Pool war sauber und immer angenehm frisch. Im unteren Bereich des Hauses gab es einen kleinen Gemüsegarten, von dem man sich jederzeit bedienen durfte. Das Haus selbst ist innen sehr kühl, also für heiße Sommertage optimal.
