With the stone exterior of a traditional Tuscan farmhouse and rustic-chic interiors, Villa Gauggiole is a dreamy four-bedroom retreat in the Val d’Orcia region, Tuscany.
Spread out over a main villa and guest house, the property offers plenty of space and privacy, but thanks to its location on the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate, there are vineyards, trails and even a private golf course just minutes away.
Surrounded by vineyards, rolling hills and a lush green lawn with a pool, the villa has views for miles. Enjoy the scenery from the heated pool and pool house, a lounge on the pool deck, a shady sitting area just off the house, or the covered outdoor dining area. Try your hand at an Italian specialty at the outdoor pizza oven, or just pick a local treat from the breakfast delivered daily. Inside, the villa is equipped with air conditioning and Wi-Fi and a mini-bar for the adults.
Though the villa retains its original stone walls, beamed ceilings and the fireplace in the living room, its interiors have been given a sophisticated makeover. Living rooms in the main house and pool house are outfitted in warm, neutral tones, with cheeky touches like plaid upholstery and a nailhead-trimmed coffee table. Gather everyone in the spacious formal dining room or around the farmhouse-style table in the fully equipped, high-ceilinged kitchen.
Active travelers will love exploring the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate, whether strolling the vineyards, playing a round on the private golf course or taking a hunting or fly-fishing excursion with one of the estate’s guides. Off the estate, it’s only 7 km to restaurants and bars, 3.6 km to Il Borgo and about 12 km to the town of Montalcino. Further afield, you’ll find the Florence airport 120 km away, the Pisa airport 160 km away and the Rome airport 225 km away.
