Gaiole in Chianti, 3 km from Radda in Chianti, 30 km from Siena, 40 km from Florence
Our perfectly typical Chianti house, in a Renaissance painting-like scenery, has its central core dating back to the XIth C. but the origins can be traced back to the Etruscan-Rman period:
“Traces of a house at La Casa (640 m asl) can be observed in a woodland west of the farm estate near the Piana torrent (short segments of dry wall with squared stones for a range of 8*10 m; brick and ceramic material) (cfr. Carta Archeologica della Provincia di Siena, I, Il Chianti senese, p. 252 nos. 177, 179)”
The house has been lovingly and tastefully renovated and decorated by her recently departed mistress, Marisa Marino in Forcheri, with the help of her daughter Paola and an artist painter Luca Carfagna.
Olive Tree Garden
La Casa is surrounded by a beautiful garden in an olive-grove with a 12*6 m pool with a panoramic situation and furnished comfortable terraces to eat outside.
