Torretta Barbischio, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 people 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.

Isabella and her son Gabrielle who spoke English well, were a joy to work with. They were very responsive and went out of their way to be helpful during our stay.

The villa was comfortable and very lovely. We would not recommend it for a family with small children due to the steps from the ground floor to the third floor. The kitchen on the ground floor was very well thought out. We cook in sometimes; and even made pasta one night. The gardens were beautiful and Paulo, who took care of the pool and gardens,
although speaking only Italian, was very friendly and helpful. The views were incredible from our villa. There is also a well know restaurant a few steps away from where we were that was very good
We did have problems with the internet which was a difficult for us due to my husbands business, but went into Gaiole at one of the coffee shops when needed.
Local attractions We love Gaiole a small village we discovered on one of our trips to Italy. One of our requirements was to find a villa close to the town. There are lovely little shops in Gaiole to investigate with good sandwiches, gelato or clothing and gifts. There is a meat market and small grocery and the Coop that we frequented. We always go to the Castello di Spaltenna for dinner, to the pizzeria Il Galletto briaco on the second floor by the parking area for Gaiole for dinner twice. There is a restaurant in the square Lo Sfizio Di Bianchi that we went to this year for dinner that was very good. We would recommend also Le Contrade and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Badia Coltebuono.
