Podere Castello 14

Elegant Tuscan Farmhouse with vineyard views : near Gaiole in Chianti

The forested hills of Chianti have long exerted their siren call over lovers of good wine, good food and beautiful views. Podere Castello is set in a privileged position, high on a hill with views of vineyards, forests of evergreen oak, and the fortified church that once protected this small hamlet.

Today this ancient stone farmhouse has been transformed into an elegant home for fourteen guests in spacious en-suite bedrooms. One of these bedrooms is fully accessible, making this house ideal for groups or families where somebody has limited mobility. The private swimming pool has stepped access so all can enjoy the views of Chianti from the infinity edge.


This ancient stone Tuscan house is set on a wide terrace with an infinity pool, facing a view of Chianti vineyards and a thousand-year old fortified church just below the house! The view is truly spectacular even for Tuscany which abounds with spectacular views.

The swimming pool is lined along the view facing facade of the house, with shaded areas to relax and to eat al-fresco.

The entrance leads into a light-filled dining room with a large sitting/living room to the right, a spacious and well- equipped kitchen to the left, and directly ahead, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom that is entirely wheelchair accessible. It also has a connecting single bedroom, ideal for a carer.

Heading upstairs you will find an ensuite double-bedrooom on the half landing.

The house has 2 further floors, the first with 3 ensuite doubles and then 2 more doubles, also ensuite, on the last floor, giving a total of 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The extra single that is connected to the accessible bedroom is not counted in this number.

On the first floor you will also find a second living room on this floor, with sofas and a fireplace.

Outside by the pool a building houses a typical Tuscan pizza oven, as well as a sauna and a Turkish bath.

Worth knowing

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.
