Set in tranquility in the heart of the Chianti region, between Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardenga, is a 5-bedroom villa known as Villa La Maccinaia 10. The number 10 is derived from the number of guests it can accommodate, namely 10, but can go up to 12 pax with its bedroom configuration. A gorgeous and magnificent property that is part of a wine producing estate, it consists of a main building that dates back to the 17th century and has been restored to exceptional standards and top-notch quality that is befitting of a real mansion. With contemporary design that fits perfectly to the original Tuscan architecture, guests have an abundance of spaces at their disposal, whether indoors or outdoors. The separate building is also well-equipped with facilities including a built-in barbeque. A self-cultivated vegetable garden outside allows guests to enjoy these locally grown organic produce that truly encapsulates the farm-to-table philosophy.
Built with 5 bedrooms that can sleep 12 people in this main house, guests will be delighted that their full group can all congregate and socialise under the same roof. On the ground floor, is a lofted twin bedroom for either 2 or 4 guests that can be accessed from a separate entrance and with a private bathroom - a space that is perfect for a family with young children or for a group of young teens. Up on the 1st floor, guests will find a double bedroom with its own bathroom too, while 3 remaining rooms are housed on the 2nd floor - namely the Master Bedroom with its bathroom consisting of a shower area and bathtub, and 2 double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom, one of it comes with a shower and the other a bathtub with both sharing a common toilet.
