About the Owner

The villa belongs to the same family since 1976. Our kids and grandchildren have spent their holidays here. We have decorated it with love during this time and maintained it to a high standard. We hope you will love our house as much as we do.

Absolutely wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

What a stunningly beautiful place! Us and friends (12 altogether) stayed here for a week in July 2016. I selected this place without input from my friends and so was really pleased when my friends were astounded by how beautiful it was. The house had so much space (much bigger than it looks in the photos), very comfortable bedrooms and so many great social family areas to relax in. It had the perfect farmhouse kitchen for a large group! We had other friends for dinner one night and comfortably cooked in the lovely kitchen and ate outdoors - all 22 of us! The outdoor area is gorgeous, pool immaculate and views superb. You have both of best worlds here as although we visited in the busy tourist season and were only a few minutes walk from Gaiole in Chianti, the location and house was so quiet and peaceful there. We had excellent communication with the owner and great local support for any questions we had while we were there. The only regret was that we did not stay longer! We all agreed we should have stayed for at least 2 weeks minimum! Thanks so much for letting us stay in this lovely family home!!

From the Owner

The house was built at the beginning of last century by the Ricasoli family, the largest landowners in Chianti, for the farmers who worked their land. The large paved area between the house and the barn was the farmyard and you can still see the ancient bread oven at the entrance of the house. The garden has a beautiful oak tree under which you can enjoy the breeze and the view of the ancient castle of Meleto.
