the house is a deliziona chapel nestled in the heart of Chainti a few hundred meters from the medieval village of Vertine and 1 km from Gaiole in Chianti.
a private garden, walking and nearby rivers.

The space

The house is a one thousand year old restored chapel, that was recently expanded and renovated, but that still maintains its original structure and character. Nested among the most beautiful Chianti hills and with a view of old towers and castles, the house is fully detached with an ample garden surrounded by terraced olive orchards. The house has a large open space living room with windows opening on the garden. There are two bedrooms. The first floor bedroom/studio has a twin/single bed and has direct access to the more private back garden. The main upstairs bedroom, in the old chapel part, still maintains the original rafters on the ceiling. This room has a queen/double bed. The first floor bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub. Two pergola roofs in front of the main entrance creates shade space with terracotta flooring where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful garden and the Chianti landscape. Next the the house there is a terraced area with BBQ where it is possible to cook and eat outside. Few country trails that pass by the house lead to beautiful woods, olive orchards, vineyard and nearby medieval villages. The Castle of Vertine, with its beautiful medieval towers, is just few hundred yards away and can be reached by foot in ten minutes. Gaiole in Chianti, the closest village, is about 1.5 miles away. Here you can find all the regular services such as the post office, the bank, grocery shops, the pharmacy, restaurants, pubs and transportation. Four miles away, Radda in Chianti, is a favorite spot for wine testing. Siena, about 18 miles away, and Florence, 35 miles, are the two main cultural and art centers nearby. Besides relaxing in the house and enjoying the Chianti atmosphere, while maybe testing some local foods and Chianti wines, you can also enjoy outdoor activities such horse back riding, mountain biking and trekking. In the area is also possible to visit castles, wineries, villages and historical towns that abound in this territory. The rent includes wi-fi internet, final laundry and cleaning fees.

Piero and his friend Gina were wonderful hosts. Gina met us in Gaiole and we followed her to La Capella. We were delighted with the cottage and it's location which is surrounded with olive trees and grape vineyards. There is a castle a short walk up the hill with a small coffee/wine shop. We felt the cottage was our home away from home. We were able to visit Siena, Florence, and other hill towns as well as tour the surrounding countryside. Piero was very helpful with logistics (explained how to take the train from Montevarchi - a nearby town - to Florence to avoid the traffic.) He also met us in Siena for a coffee, which was lovely. The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen with fresh herbs growing in the yard. Gaiole in Chianti is a nice, small town where we shopped at the Coop for food and gasoline. We felt very blessed to be able to stay at La Capella for a week and highly recommend this accommodation if you enjoy the quiet countryside and a space with very good energy.

Pieros house is a nice house in the countryside in the Chianti region. It has plenty of room for 2 people but 3 or 4 would also fit. It lies between Gaiole and Vertine. The surrounding ist very quiet an beautiful! Perfect for relaxing. The maps with the hiking trail were very handy and helped us explore the area, In the evening we relaxed on the porch or watched TV (there is a newer tv then shown on the photos, it is newer and bigger and you can connect via HDMI). Check in and out worked great with Pieros friend Gina. She helped us also organizing a reservation for playing tennis in Gaiole. We had a great time!

La Capella is a beautiful and quite place next to olive trees and wine plants. The house is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy Tuscany. We had a relaxed time over the last 10 days. Everything is available to have a pleasant stay. Vertine is in walking distance and Gaiole is close for shopping etc. Communication with Gina and Piero was always perfect and on time. We had a perfect time. Thanks.

The house was extremely clean, and the bed was firm, which is as we like it , and very comfortable , with nice cotton sheets . The house is very well equipped and also nicely furnished. Piero is an excellent host, with great communications and helpful ideas about the locality . Also he met us in Gaiole to show us where the house is which was a great help. The house is in a great location ,and it is easy to travel to lovely local towns . The house is very peaceful, and very good for relaxing with a good book, or two. . Highly recommended .

During our one-week stay in Pietro's house, we enjoyed the Tuscany way of life. Ideally located in a quiet place in the Chianti area, surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and wooded hills, the cottage is the perfect place to relax or, visit the countryside or famous spots in Tuscany (Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Arrezo, Radda in Chianti, ...). We didn't had the chance to meet the host, so probably missed helpful information about the surroundings. We thank Pietro for his renting that we highly recommend and would love to return. Best regards, Marc & Manuela from Belgium
