Francesca purchased this Villa in 1959
Why Francesca chose Siena
Casa Gaia has been built by my father in 1959: daddy was a lover of flowers and countryside, he loved to spend all his moment of freedom in this house, where he could rest, hear the silence of the nature and smell all the odors of the woods and of his flowers. Still our parents were alive, this was the place where our families meet (in Xmas time etc,) and with friends: mummy cooked for all and we were really happy to stay together, most of the best memories of our life are connected to this house.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa ha a really enormous garden, all closed (perfect for those who have dogs), it ha a swimming pool with a very nice view on the valley: if you are looking for a place full of peace, silence, great views, close to siena center, this is the perfect place.

We loved our stay at this wonderful home for the week we spent in Sienna. It was perfect for a base to explore Sienna and many other areas of interest in Tuscany.
The home is quite large and very nicely appointed. The living area was very comfortable and the dining area very large with a great table for dinners. The kitchen was great and had all needed to prepare great meals after a long day of exploring. The 3 bedrooms above were comfortable as well with plenty of storage.
We took great advantage of the outdoor seating and views overlooking the valley as well as the 2nd century church next to the property.
This property is a home and you will feel right at home when visiting. I would highly recommend it as a base for exploring Tuscany and we look forward to returning at some point in the future!
House in the woods
Tucked away down a long bumpy track you will find this beautiful home. Your only neighbour is the hermitage leonardo .Walkers pass the garden following in the steps of the pilgrims as they make their way from Canterbury to Rome. All this tranquility is just a 15 minute drive from beautiful Siena the perfect place to enjoy evenings immersed in Italian culture and charm . Here you will also find an excellent supermarket full of local products and day to day necessities.
Many more hilltop towns are within easy reach all are worth the effort to visit.
Back at the house you can cool in the lovely pool and dine on the terrace watching the sun set over the richly coloured Tuscan soil .Beautiful aromas of lavender and rosemary fill the warm air as the crickets seronade you . If you are travelling with four legged friends you can rest assured that the extensive grounds are safe and secure for them to freely enjoy. The house is clean and homely well equipped kitchen comfy beds and a hot powerful shower .
We loved our time in the little house in the woods and will look forward to a return visit soon
dear Natania, thank you so much for this review, the kind words you used to describe Lina's house are the same I would have used to describe it, because they reflect the love and passion that my aunt Lina put in this place and that she is able to transmit to the house and to her guests. You have been a perfect guest and I thank you so much for this. Hope to meet you next time at Casa al Bosco, take care of you, Francesca
Quiet secluded villa
We had a lovely week at Villa Gaia. Francesca was very helpful. The villa has everything you need and is very quiet and peaceful.
A nice, large and well functioning house with all you need. A fine swimmingpool; not that large but actually OK. Nice and peacefull location. Some distance to shops and supermarkets so you need a car.
A wonderful place
Delightful property with a very rural location which further adds to its charms. The swimming pool was a real boon during got afternoons, and the AC in the bedrooms worked well. Heartily recommended.
Fantastic get away from it farm house
What a lovely retreat. It really is in the middle of the valley, fantastic views and wildlife. Right next door to a photogenic Hermitage, on the pilgrims footpath very peaceful and tranquil.
Don’t let the track put you off, our Clio hire car coped fine but make sure you have good directions or sat nav. You will need it to get to places too. Shops nearby in Siena about 5 miles away were great, very close to sights in Siena, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano and we went to Florence (use the out of town tram and ride on the A1, much easier). We kept coming back to the farmhouse. Very peaceful, bottle of wine, cheese and the views. Perfect Tuscan sunrises and beautiful misty mornings!
All emenities available, phone signals good, WiFi was a bit hit and miss so don’t rely on it. It really is a remote (ish) place. Pool was great but note it is one shoulder depth throughout.
