Torretta Barbischio, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Set in a tiny hamlet a short distance from Gaiole, one of Chianti’s most popular hill towns, Torretta Barbischio makes a wonderful base for visiting the wine-producing region. This property is breathing history and dates back to the 14th century. You’re within easy reach of Siena, Florence and San Gimignano when you want a bit of Tuscan flamboyance, but this beautifully furnished and immaculately kept villa will ensure hours of deep relaxation and contentment. With accommodation arranged over three floors inside and three terraces outside – all with unimpeded views of Chianti woodland and vineyards – plus a generous private pool, the villa is ideal for families with older children or a group of friends. A full party of six will find plenty of space to settle into. And if you have any fitness enthusiasts with you, there’s even a well-equipped home gym in the pool house.

There is much to enjoy inside Torretta Barbischio – ornate mirrors, richly coloured kelims and painted cupboards complement stylish contemporary windows and en-suite bathrooms – but the simple pleasures of watching the sun go down during dinner on the terrace may well come top of your holiday memories.

Our Thoughts
Torretta Barbischio will spoil you silly. This beautifully restored villa has lovely traditional Tuscan touches – including terracotta vaulted ceilings and floor tiles, handsome stone walls, cool interiors – plus original artwork, brocaded textiles, en-suite bathrooms and an enviable private pool, complete with poolside gym room and bathroom. On top of that, you are in a truly peaceful hamlet with an excellent local restaurant and are just a hop and a skip from Chianti’s gem, Gaiole.

Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, all en-suite. One double can be converted to twins if requested when booking. Maid service three times a week is included. Note that Torretta Barbischio's gardens are overlooked by the villa’s immediate neighbour and there is a road passing the villa – however, this is used only by local residents.

This being our first adventure of this type, with a three week commitment, we were a bit nervous.
Should not have been; it exceeded our expectations in every way; including its location.
Super well maintained and as clean as new; it is an interesting building with beautiful 'grounds'!
There are lots of stairs; actually a good thing as it allowed us to feel free to eat; everything!!
The location is out of the way and quiet; just as we hoped. Gaiole is just a short drive and has what you need. The restaurant 'next door' is wonderful and accommodating; a treasure. The facilities' grounds give it the feeling of a true villa. Warning; we had mosquitoes right up to our mid October departure; one of Tuscany's hidden realities. Being truly a central location it was just a matter of choice to go east or west, etc., to visit the many other town and attractions as you desire. It all worked!
Local attractions San G, Radda, Greve, Badia, Castello di Meleto; etc., etc! Il Papavero and Le Contrada were our favorite restaurants. The cooking class at the abby Badia was another highlight. [Remember, this part of Tuscany is not a sepia toned view of open fields, tall ceders and villages; It is forested hills and mountains with very narrow roads that climb the only way possible; via switchbacks. Best not to have a large vehicle and back seat passengers!] There seem to be endless small places to visit; and, Florence is just a $7/45 minute train to the center away. Siena is also a substantial town and a good alternative for serious shopping. And yes the Prada outlet is just 45 minutes away; with some true bargains. Go; enough!!
