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.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
