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.

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!
