La Gavelli is a stylish 17th century Tuscan villa with modern amenities just south of Siena, with the ranging hills of the Val d’Orcia to the south and evergreen Chianti to the north. It has un-interrupted hilltop views and lies within a protected area of oaks and olive groves, rich with truffles and porcini mushrooms and interspersed with a network of paths.
Everything at La Gavelli is wonderfully thought out: The large 4.5 x 13m, infinity pool has a shallow end ideal for children, beautiful travertine terracing and views over the Montagnola Senese hills. All around are jasmine-scented terraces, covered pergolas, an enclosed courtyard with pizza oven and other shady areas perfect for reading, relaxing and al fresco dining. There are four restaurants within ten minutes’ drive and a nearby spa with thermal pool, gym, hammam and a full range of treatments available. The renowned Brunello wine region is under an hour away.
Interiors are beautifully designed, with carefully chosen fabrics and furnishings, excellent bathrooms and plenty of space. Upstairs there is a cosy reading room with an open fireplace. On the ground floor there is a large open-plan living space that opens through two French doors onto a 'Zen' terrace, perfect for enjoying cocktails overlooking the pool and countryside beyond. Steps lead down to the lower garden and parkland. The adjacent barn has been converted to provide separate living space for up to four guests.
