Villa Gaia


Description

Welcome to Villa Gaia, a monumental four-floor, 16-bedroom villa, located in the beautiful countryside of the Chianti region, in central Tuscany, Italy, with a team of staff ready to cater to your every need.

Centuries old and beautifully restored to its traditional Tuscan architecture, it’s an exemplary property, with terracotta tiles and local stone used in the masonry, staying as close to the traditional façade as possible. The villa has a long history; owned for hundreds of years by an aristocratic family, the property is expansive, the villa itself sitting on 16,000 sq. ft. Framed by meticulously landscaped gardens, several recreation areas, patios and an outer dining area, each of these areas are specifically designed to make sure maximum privacy is afforded to guests for the duration of their stay. Several living spaces are at the disposal of the guests, both inside and out, equipped with plenty of comfortable seating for guests to spread out and relax on, from the sun loungers next to the pool, under the parasols and in the gazebo, to the lavishly decorated and comfortably furnished living spaces and studies that populate the villa.

Marvelous, lofty ceilings grace the interior of the villas’ many rooms and spaces, bringing with it the coloured past lives and styles of its previous owners. One such living area, comprised of two storeys, sports a brick ceiling that is vaulted overhead in a wide-spanning barrel arch, and underneath, a vast area filled with comfortable couches and chairs to sink into - either in front of a roaring fire with a glass of wine, or around the coffee table with family and friends, the perfect place for entertaining. Intricate and detailed paintings dot the walls of the living space, conveying both a sense of grandeur and nobility, while soft lighting and warm colours allow guests to feel welcome and make themselves at home.
A fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, along with the services of a professional chef, affords guests the opportunity to sample the culinary delights of traditional Tuscan cuisine, with delicious food, made from local produce, served in the fabulous array of dining spaces the villa contains. Alternatively, dinner al fresco may be arranged on the stone laid-terrace, to the peaceful ambience of the surrounding gardens to encourage relaxation, with the backdrop of the glorious Italian landscape to complete the experience.

Each bedroom is lavish in its décor; elegant antique and heirloom furniture, expertly crafted and maintained to stand the test of time stands proudly in each room, the high ceilings embellished with intricate plaster coving, making the transition from wall to ceiling something to be admired. Soft lighting, pastel colours and plush materials in the beds and bedding all combine to encourage guests to relax and unwind in utter comfort and contentment, with the guarantee that guests will awaken refreshed and rejuvenated. Each room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, with either a shower or bath tub on hand to soothe and settle the body after a day of adventures and activities.

Area description

Villa Gaia is located just 15 minutes’ drive from the nearest town, Colle di Val d’Elsa, a town that also enjoys a rich historical background and maintains much of the gorgeous architecture from those times. Well-placed to be the perfect retreat for connoisseurs, or even those who enjoy the odd tipple of wine, Villa Gaia’s vistas showcase the lands that the famous winemaking region prides itself on, with many wineries within easy reach of the property.
Villa Gaia is in a prime spot for guests to enjoy both absolute privacy and seclusion but enjoy the convenience of residing close by to shops, bars and restaurants, and sample the local Italian culture. The convenience of its location also extends to some of Italy’s more well-known places, such as Florence (60km), home of the Renaissance, and Siena (34km), a historical wonder that has made the list as a World Heritage site. Pisa (109km), home to the famous leaning tower, is to the west of Florence, and, as is the case with all large Italian cities, is filled to the brim with shops, pubs, clubs and restaurants for guests to peruse and explore at their leisure, soaking up the Italian experience in style.
