Villa del Gallo Nero - The stone tower, in the ancient village of the fifteenth century.
Villa del Gallo Nero. This Villa is a 15th century stone tower and it is part of a characteristic, small, stone village in the heart of Chianti. The villa is on three levels, it has 5 bedrooms, each lovingly decorated with Italian linens, and 5 bathrooms, each with its own shower or bath. The Villa comfortably sleeps 10.
Outside, a recently renovated terrace extends the length of the villa and provides a lovely setting for dining al fresco. Fresh herbs border the stone patio and a wood-burning grill is built into the wall surrounding the terrace. Guests can enjoy outside dining while watching Tuscan sunsets. In the garden there is a furnished table with 10 chairs. Barbeque available.
There are normally no problem to park up to 3 cars along the street by the villa.
The pool is 6x12 metres. The pool is about 100 metres far from the villa and it is shared with the guests of other two cottages. Pool linen is available and included in price. The area is furnished for sunbathing. The pool is open from May till the end of September.
The Villa is warmly furnished with a mix of traditional Tuscan antiques and overstuffed couches and chairs that complement the stone and richly colored stucco walls. Terra cotta floors and soaring beamed ceilings dominate the first two floors, while the third floor bedrooms feature sloped, beamed ceilings and bathrooms en suite. The antique dining room table seats 12 with ease. The house has two living rooms, one on the first floor and a larger one on the second floor. The second floor living room features large Palladian style windows that afford a spectacular view of the surrounding vineyards, the Chianti Hills and the beautiful Tuscan sunsets. A large fireplace, perfect for roasting chestnuts or taking the chill off a cool evening further enhances the room.
The kitchen is really large (approximately 30 square meters). The kitchen is also connected by a wooden door to the terrace where there are some fine herbs to be used when cooking. The newly renovated kitchen is fully equipped with range, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and high quality pots, pans and cooking utensils. An antique Tuscan table in the center of the room is the perfect place for a casual meal or a great spot to sit and roll fresh pasta. The kitchen has been totally refurbished a couple of years ago but keeping the charm and originality of a Tuscan kitchen.
