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.

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.

Erholung pur!

Ein Ferienparadies in dem man sich sofort wie zu hause fühlt!
Wir haben uns zur Schlüsselübergabe mit den Vermietern ca. 1 Stunde vor unserem Ziel getroffen. Die sehr freundliche und persönliche Begegnung mit vielen guten Ratschlägen und Tipps hat uns einen perfekten Einstieg für zwei wunderbare Wochen beschert. Wie wir schon vor Antritt der Reise wussten, ist die Zufahrtsstraße nicht unbedingt für Sportwagen oder Rennfahrer geeignet. Normale Familienwagen, mit entsprechender Vorraussicht gelenkt, haben keine Probleme diesen Weg zu befahren. Unser Wagen hat alles ohne Probleme überstanden. Da wir nun schon zum zweiten Mal in Scopeto waren kann ich sagen, dass die Straße ständig verbessert wird.
Am Haus angekommen wurden wir von einem liebevoll gepflegten Garten mit blühenden Blumen begrüßt der auch während der Urlaubszeit durch einen Gärtner in bestem Zustand gehalten wurde.
Das ganze Grundstück ist mit einem Elektrozaun gegen Wild gesichert der sich automatisch zur Nachtzeit einschaltet und ebenso pünktlich früh am Morgen wieder deaktiviert. Perfekt also für Gäste mit Hunden, die man aus diesem Grund den ganzen Tag sorglos ohne Leine laufen lassen kann. Dass dieser Zaun wichtig ist merkt man spätestens Nachts beim beobachten der Glühwürmchen wenn man im Wald die Wildschweine hört.
Das liebevoll gestaltete Grundstück macht einen sehr gepflegten Eindruck.
Gleiches gilt für den Pool. Dieser wird ebenfalls einmal in der Woche gründlich gereinigt und überprüft. Jeden Abend wurde Tischtennis gespielt und anschließend gemütlich in den Sonnenuntergang geschaut. Für einen rustikalen Grillabend ist ebenfalls alles vorhanden.
Die Kochinsel lud uns des Öfteren zum gemeinsamen Kochen ein. Saubere Schüsseln, Töpfe und alles was man dafür benötigte war genauso vorhanden wie sauberes Geschirr für alle. Der große Kühlschrank bot genug Platz um unsere üppigen Einkäufe kühlen zu können.
Die Badezimmer und Toiletten waren sauber und äußerst geschmackvoll eingerichtet, genau wie alle anderen Räume. Besonders die Schlafzimmer waren so gemütlich dass man morgens gar nicht mehr aus dem Bett wollte. Zweimal in der Woche kommt Marilena vorbei um nach dem Rechten zu sehen, bezieht die Betten, wechselt die Handtücher und entsorgt den Müll.
Während unseres Aufenthalts gab es keine nennenswerten Vorkommnisse, abgesehen davon das es für alle eine wundervolle Erholung war. Wenn wir könnten, würden wir sofort wieder losfahren.
Leider kann man keine sechs Sterne vergeben.

Owner's Response: Danke fuer die freundlichen Worte und wir freuen uns, dass ihr Scopeto auch so liebt und dieses Jahr zum drittenmal kommt!

Lovely house but a few problems.

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 26/07/2009
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2009
This is a very nice house indeed with amazing views. The location is so quiet and peaceful with not another house or building in sight. It has the best equipped kitchen we have experienced in a house for this number of people. Plenty of pots, pans and utensils to cook for a large number. The swimming pool is delightful although it was lacking enough sun beds when we were there in June. I believe the owner intends to buy more.

The house was not quite as clean as we would have liked, particularly as the end of rental cleaning was on the expensive side at 95 Euros for a party of 7.

The local town of Gaiole in Chianti which is about 20 minutes away is lovely and has everything one might need in terms of shopping and places to eat. There is a small supermarket, an excellent butcher, a couple of delis, a very good greengrocer and a chemist. Radda, which is a bit further away is also a very nice little town and has good shopping facilities including a larger supermarket.

One thing you need to beware of when you book your car hire is that the road down to the house from the main road is unmade (about 2 - 3 kms) and can be very difficult in a small car. The owner does warn you about this when you get the final information prior to the rental period but we booked our car rental before we were aware of the state of the road. One of our cars was a Ford Focus and was fine but the other car was a Fiat Punto which was lower and we ended up damaging the undercarriage of the car (which the car rental insurance does not cover!).

We really enjoyed eating at home most evenings watching the gorgeous sunsets but if you want an excellent dinner out one evening the Bottega del Trenta is a very special place to go. It's about 25 minutes away.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review which I hope will help interested parties. We have dealt with the points: the unmade road has been flattened and gravelled but will always need careful slow driving, the deckcharis have been doubled and the final cost includes cost of laundry for sheets, 2 pillowcases each and 2 towels each for the whole house.
There are many wonderful restaurants nearby which we are happy to inform you about.
