Villa Contenta is a delightful converted farm-building in the heart of Chianti, close to Gaiole and Radda, both famous Chianti wine-making towns. The villa is all on one level with large windows looking out over the rolling hills of Chianti, the swimming pool is right in front of the house and enjoys the same wonderful views as the house.
This is the perfect base for a Tuscan holiday for six, all rooms ensuite and with airconditioning throughout.
The entrance is from a covered loggia that also shelters a working wood pizza-oven, perfect for meals under the shaded pergola nearby.
Inside you'll find a kitchen/dining-room, a living room and a large double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, all of which have windows onto the lawn and swimming-pool. One of the bedrooms and its ensuite is accessible to those in a wheelchair, with a wide-entry bathroom and shower door, angled mirrors and helpful handles.
Behind these you'll find two more ensuite double rooms and a laundry room, as well as a very sweet little hideaway tucked a few steps up, a perfect spot to relax with a book.
Contenta is in the very heart of Chianti, surrounded by vineyards, beautiful hill towns and excellent wineries. There are lots of excellent hikes through the area, many even going past wine-tasting farms and castles - this is an area with plenty to explore without going too far.
Should you wish to visit the famous cities of Tuscany, like Siena, Florence or Arezzo, they are all within an hour's drive, as are many of the other famous areas and wine cities, like the [Valdorcia]((/guide/italy/tuscany/valdorcia), or the Valdelsa.

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
