Located atop a hill in Gaiole in Chianti in an area rated by Forbes magazine as the most idyllic in Europe sits this villa completed in 2009, with 360-degree views, two hectares of gardens and an infinity edge pool. The Villa offers a fresh perspective on Tuscan living. The four-hundred-year-old farmhouse restored to the highest standards of design and green friendly principles, is now an expansive and luxurious family home fusing together the best Italian style and craftsmanship with contemporary decor: an open plan with an abundance of light, exposed stone, original wooden beams, travertine flooring, contemporary furniture and modern art.
The home design, approached with research in the historical context, results in a newclassic style with quality washed wooden boards and resin floors. Vaulted wood-beamed ceilings lend a rustic feel to the interiors. Aesthetically, the house recalls traditional typologies — for instance, the garden with a vista over the extraordinary terroir — as well as traditional materials including stone locally sourced. A contemporary influence, however, was the decision to include international-hotel style kitchen and living areas. The villa is designed for total relaxation and ease. For families, the pool has a remotecontrolled safety cover to protect little ones, plus there are toys, games, books, films and endless sleeping and feeding equipment. For the eco conscientious, energy is derived from solar panels, wood powers the under-floor heating and collected rainfall waters the immaculate lawns. For sightseers, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and other beautiful places are on the doorstep. For those who love eating and drinking, an endless choice of restaurants, in-house dining or visiting nearby wine estates await. Contemporary yet very comfortable, this is a chic retreat full of light and a welcoming vibe, blending traditional and modern Architecture.
An all-seasons property and a fabulous retreat for special gatherings, the magnificent property provides the flexibility and freedom of a self-catering rental up to a fully staffed experience. Covering six hundred square meters, it comprises five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two sitting rooms, dining room, modern designer kitchen, games room and gym. Set around a central courtyard, containing a pizza oven and barbeque area, there are also two other terraces for the al fresco experience. The pool is located in the olive grove and has breathtaking views.
Nestled on a 2 hectares parcel overlooking the Chianti skyline, this villa features a heated pool and landscaped terrace. Set amid wide lawned areas, vineyards and olive groves, it also comes with sunbathing area with sun loungers and deck chairs and parking space. Its current owners embarked on a meticulous renovation in 2009, preserving the original structure and installing top-of-the-line appliances.
