loft nel cuore del chianti toscano

House - Entire home/apt · Località Molin Lungo, Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany 53013, Italy

In piena campagna, a 5/10 minuti da Gaiole/Radda in Chianti e 25 minuti da Siena, un luminoso appartamento ristrutturato da un architetto milanese per sua sorella (io!) e la sua (website hidden) abbiamo vissuto 10 anni, poi ci siamo trasferiti a Siena per la scuola e le attività dei nostri 3 figli; allora abbiamo deciso di rinnovare la nostra amata casa e offrirla per affitti più o meno brevi. E' una casa che giustifica di per sé una vacanza, grande camino, ampi spazi, giardino rigoglioso e...meravigliosa piscina privata (condivisa con altri 4 vicini) a due passi, a ridosso del bosco. Intorno la zona del Chianti senese, con i suoi monti e i suoi borghi. Ideale per mountain biking e belle passeggiate per vigneti e colline direttamente fuori casa, possiamo anche oganizzarvi percorsi di degustazioni in alcune tra le più interessanti aziende vinicole del Chianti. E poi, a un passo, Siena, Firenze. Una cara amica che parla un ottimo inglese ad accogliere gli ospiti, con possibilità di spesa di arrivo e di servizio "cuoca a casa". Ho voluto attrezzare la casa per accogliere con facilità e allegria i bambini, anche più piccoli (possibilità di seggiolone, lettino, giochi...), ma la nostra casa può essere anche un romantico rifugio per una coppia in viaggio.
In casa troverete un elenco con i ristoranti e i luoghi a mio parere più piacevoli dei dintorni, ma quest'anno per gli ospiti interessati ad un turismo di "conoscenza", potrei dire storico/antropologica, ho deciso di offrire anche dei percorsi guidati per capire il Chianti quale veramente é, e non come lo propongono le cartoline... Comprendere questo complesso e particolarissimo territorio nella sua storia e nel suo presente, attraverso visite a musei locali, ad aziende di vino di amici disponibili a spiegare tutte le evoluzioni della produzione del vino pregiato di queste zone, a paesi e poderi che hanno dietro di sé una storia...
Inoltre offro lezioni di cucina italiana partendo anche dal fare la spesa, e cene su ordinazione.
In alcuni periodi è anche possibile organizzare pranzi nella mia casa nel centro storico di Siena, eventualmente facendo prima la spesa e cucinando insieme...invece del ristorante, un'immersione in una casa italiana!
A presto dunque...

  • Guilia is a wonderful host. She went out of her way to prepare us a welcoming home with lots of delicious Italian goods as gifts. The house had everything we needed for our stay and allowed us to visit the Chianti wine country, San Giminiano, Florence, Pisa and Sienna which we truly recommend. We had a true feel of what it is like to live in the Tuscany country. Just make sure to go after March so important places and wineries are open.

  • Really nice place, and thanks to the central heating warm even in winter. We spent four wonderful weeks in Nov/Dec with our little daughter (~ 10 months old) who loved to explore every corner of the big loft. In the ceiling there are even hooks to fasten a swing (which we bought there, because we wanted to buy one anyway).
    My wife and I enjoyed hiking, especially after discovering that official hiking paths pass behind the house (you won't find many signs, though - check (website hidden)). Giulia is really nice and helpful, as the others have said here!

  • It was a 5 stars holidays thanks to Giulia.
    We spent wonderful holidays, with the feeling of being " at home".
    The house is gorgeous, 100% matching with the pictures, fully equipped including toys for our 2 and 5 years old daughters.
    We enjoyed having lunch in the little garden front of the house, under the " pergola".
    When we arrived, because it was late in the evening, a complementary basket of fruits, vegetables, jam, italian biscuits, as well as a Prosecco wine, was left by Giulia as a welcome gift !
    Giulia is a very delicate host, taking care of her guests : in addition to the papers available at the house, she provided very useful information about restaurants, areas to visit, shops and she even found a baby sitter for us. The location of the house was perfect to visit the Chianti vineyards, enjoy the amazing landscapes and toscan villages, visit the beautiful city of Sienna.
    Gracie Mille Giulia for your special care, your kindness !

  • Giulia and her husband are a most charming couple and her loft is a great place to spend vacations. The pictures on the AirBnB website represent very well the warm, cozy and personal nature of her house. The nearby swimmingpool (50m away) is beautiful and clean, most of the times we were by ourselves. Giulia sent us before our arrival a lot of 'personal tips' on places to visit, restaurants etc - all the ones we visited were really good. The only 'thing' we had a little problem with were the hard tuscan beds - too hard for retirees like us. However, we found quickly a solution and had just 17 wonderful days at Giulia's place - a 'jewel' we warmly recommend. Thank you !

  • Ma famille et moi même avons passe un très agréable séjour chez Giulia. Nous avons reçu un acceuil très chaleureux. Le lieu est parfait et nécessite d avoir une voiture. Giulia nous a recommandé de voir un producteur d huile d olive de ses connaissances et je vous le recommande très chaleureusement à mon tour. La maison est comme sur la photo. On se sent comme chez soi. Merci à Giulia.
