Villa Gaia is a monumental and extremely secluded villa stretching across four floors in the heart of Chianti, 20 minutes from Siena. The 16 bedroom villa was owned by a renowned aristocratic Italian family for centuries and is surrounded by spectacular grounds teaming with cypress trees, offering incredible views of the Tuscan countryside. The restoration of this exquisite 400-year old home stayed as close to the traditional façade as possible. Terracotta tiles lie throughout and local stone was used in the masonry; the lovely open plan living area sports a brick ceiling that is vaulted overhead in a breathtaking wide-spanning barrel arch. Guests will be transported to a bygone era of glamour, pomp and grandeur. Unwind in one of many welcoming seating areas and marvel at the exquisite artworks and fantastic interior design. This is the perfect space for relaxing either in front of the roaring fire with a glass of local wine or around the coffee table with family and friends. A fully-equipped kitchen built for preparing grand meals can be found in the home as well as a pristine tennis court, home gym and a billiards room. Completely unwind at Villa Gaia in the knowledge that every member of the group will be entertained during the stay. Spend blissful days strolling through the vast landscaped gardens, basking in the sun in the ample outside seating areas or splashing in the pool and hot tub taking in the uninterrupted views that go on for miles. Come golden hour, dine al fresco and sample sumptuous local cuisine, prepared by a professional chef. Each of the 16 bedrooms has been immaculately designed, accentuating the original features of the home with each exuding its own personality. The bedrooms all offer superb ensuite bathrooms, 14 are queen-sized with an additional two twin rooms and one single. The villa is well suited to an extended family or a group of friends looking for a once-in-a-lifetime stay or a villa to celebrate a special occasion.
