Vivaio, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

7 bedrooms 7 bathrooms 14 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Set in a vast garden with lush lawns and trees, this villa is a superb place to host a gathering of family or friends who embrace the outdoors. Vivaio is a beautiful and comfortable stone-built house in the heart of the beloved Chianti region. There’s plenty of privacy throughout the grounds, and the unfenced property seamlessly opens out onto the Tuscan landscapes. Despite being situated in the lower part of the valley, the views are still superb all around, with hills and forests creating a breath-taking backdrop.

With high ceilings and terracotta floors, the interior at Vivaio is homely and uncluttered. The dark-wood furniture and doors add a sense of class and grandeur and the bedrooms have great views from the windows. The lounge is particularly impressive, with lots of space to relax together and enjoy each other’s company. Plus, as an added bonus, one of the seven bedrooms is housed in its own cottage with a kitchen, lounge and mezzanine floor.

The house is alone standing without any neighbors on sight, so you have total privacy. The house is big enough for 3 families each with 2 older children with 6 bedrooms, so all children have separate bedrooms. And it is possible to accommodate 1 more family in the annex house near the pool. So together 4 families each with 2 children, together 16 people are possible with enough space for all. Also, the breakfast and dining area inside and outside the house is big enough for all. Well equipped kitchen. Really perfect and big pool. For the access road will recommend 4x4 and higher clearance vehicle. We found only one negative: When we arrive, after 11 hours of driving, the house was very bad cleaned which was pretty disappointing. But I need to emphasize that after a call with the manager she arranges new cleaning on the next day which was perfect. So, this was the only one negative but very unpleasant because it is the first thing you see after you enter the house. So, after the new cleaning everything was perfect and we spent great holiday in the Vivaio vila and the Chianti area and would like to return. Would recommend to the manager to change the cleaning company to the second one :-) Will highly recommend the neighbor Borgo Salcetino winery which is few minutes down the access road for wine tasing incl. meal and wine buy. For dinner would recommend Osteria Uscio & Bottega https://www.osteriauscioebottega.it/ and of course Solociccia restaurant of famous butcher Dario Cecchini in Panzano in Chianti https://www.dariocecchini.com/solociccia/?lang=en
