SUMMARY OF FARMHOUSE VILLA AND STUDIO 6 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 12

Photos and Description of this Gaiole in Chianti holiday villa

Totally secluded, stunning sunset views, self-contained studio, pets welcome

Podere Scopeto is a farmhouse villa with a main building and a separate self-contained studio sleeping max 12. From the main road you drive 2 and a half km through the woods on an un-tarmaced road which is not suitable for camper vans or 7-seater low-slung people-carriers but fine for normal cars driven slowly. The house is high up on a hill at about 600 m above sea level with outstanding views towards the west overlooking the classic chianti woods and vineyards in the area of Gaiole (15 min) in triangle Siena, Florence and Arezzo. It is in the middle of the classic supertuscan producing wineries like Brolio, Castello Meleto, Coltibuono with horizon view of Radda and Castellina. We have a large saltwater pool with spacious sun terraces and pergolas which offer our guests boyant relaxation, but for the more energetic there are miles of woods and hills to walk in beyond the 30 privately owned acres surrounding the house. Huge BBQ with enough chairs and tables to seat 24 comfortably on one of three terraces, more secluded hammocks and picnic places under the shade of our olives and sweet chestnuts. Reliable crystal clear water from our own well and faultless heating and plumbing system newly installed. 2 fireplaces cheer our winter visitors.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
Guestbook comments from the owner
Ciao Marina, we had a wonderful holiday, thank you! The weather hovered ner 30 degrees all week. The villa was perfect, and everybody had a super time. The EROICA was the toughest yet as we all suffered greatly in the heat. The 200 km took us 16 hours. As ever the scenery and hospitality made it worthwhile. Grazie!

Traumhaus , das hält was es verspricht !

  • 5 out of 5
14 Tage Traumurlaub in der TosKana . Schade nur, dass wir bedingt durch einen Megastau am Brenner einen Tag später anreisen mußten. Die Schlüsselübergabe verlief reibungslos und mit Betty lernten wir gleich mal einen sehr netten Mensche kennen. Die Anfahrt durch den Wald ist für normale PKW und einen aufmerksamen Fahrer null Problemo. Am Ende das Weges ist man dann auf einem herrlich gelegenen Grundstück, mit romantischem Ferienhaus angekommen. Alle Zimmer sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Unser sehr anspruchsvoller "Mannschaftskoch" war auch mit der perfekt eingerichtete Küche sehr zufrieden. Der riesige Pool lädt zum schwimmen und relaxen ein. Bei uns passte dazu auch ein beständig schönes Wetter. Wir hatten die Fahrräder dabei und konnten somit auch die nähere Umgebung via Pedalo erreichen. Allerdings sollte man beachten, dass die Gegend sehr bergig ist, und somit auch etwas sportliches fahren erfordert. Ein wunderbarer Ausflug war eine Fahrt (mit PKW) zum ehemaligen Kloster Sant' Anna in Camprena (Nähe Pienza) mit Abendessen im Kloster. Auf dem Rückweg haben wir dann auf der Strasse noch ein Stachelschwein gesehen. Wir dachten ja solche Tiere gibts nur in Afrika! Ein guter Tip zum Essen gehen ist das kleine Restaurant in Barbischio! Dank der umfangreichen Beschreibung mit Tips für alles Notwendige sind wir bestens durch diesen Urlaub gekommen. Danke Marina für diesen wunderschönen Urlaub !

Owner's Response: Wir freuen uns, dass es so prima Ferien waren und besonders ueber das dazu geschickte Foto, das 10 braungebrannte, frohe nette junge Leute am Schwimmbad zeigt, alle - als Roemer - in weissen Handtuechern als 'Toga' bekleidet.
Das Wetter ist ab September nicht immer so heiss, aber bei uns kann man auch bei Regen-Wetter draussen essen unter einer ueberdachten Pergola; wir haben viele Spiele, Spiel-Karten, Videos, eine ganze Wand voll Buecher (engl und deutsch) und zwei gemuetliche Kamine mit genuegend Holz um auch Regentage zur Erholung und Entspannung werden zu lassen. Dazu kommen Spazierwege um uns herum (im Herbst zum Kastanien- und Pilzesammeln ), viele gute Restaurants in der Naehe und alles, was die Toskana an Kultur zu bieten hat (Museen, Kirchen, Konzerte, grosse und kleine historische Staedte wie Siena, Florenz, Arezzo) in der Naehe. Kommen Sie bald wieder, Scopeto freut sich auf Ihren Besuch!

Look at the map and imagine a point in the centre of a triangle Arezzo, Siena and Florence: three great Italian Renaissance cities, their treasures, markets, restaurants, spaces and events beckon guests from Podere Scopeto. Nearer at hand, the great houses of our area hold frequent concerts, the markets towns, gems like Radda, Volpaia, Castellina, Greve offer their summer fieste, wineries with thier world-famous labels invite you to sample their wine and new olive oil . Hikers, bicyclists and horse riders can make thier own way along the high level paths and rides of the Chianti hills savouring the pine scented breezes. As one of our guests said last year: 'We have been in paradise'.

Other Activities: wine tasting and gastronomy.
