Description

Let the stresses of everyday life float away on a cloud of lavender-scented, sun-drenched bliss. Villa Gauggiole is a luxury villa in Tuscany that seems designed to induce a sense of relaxation. Renovated to the very highest of standards, this property has an almost-magical way of naturally relaxing you – quiet and serenity seem to seep from its very stone. The building, which was once home to a large farming family, is nestled among vineyards and surrounded by a beautiful garden, with a semi-wild feel, where lavender scrambles across paths, scenting your way as you walk.

Across the grass, at the side of the private, heated pool, you can lounge with drinks and simply stare out at the undulating landscape across the vineyards and to the proud cypress trees in the distance. A well-appointed pool house is a handy addition for parents, meaning children need not be left unsupervised while you prepare snacks or retire to the shade for a while.

The interior has been sensitively renovated, making the most of the beautiful original features – the property’s wooden beams, stone fireplace and tiled floors – which bring warmth, charm and character to the luxury living accommodation. The communal living and dining areas are beautifully cosy, yet with a sophisticated feel, while the bedrooms are light, calming and decked out in stunning fabrics and soft furnishings.

And while the villa’s staff are almost invisible, being located on the exclusive Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate means you also have access to all the facilities you would expect of a top-class hotel – from fabulous golf and spa on site to wonderful restaurants just a pleasant stroll away – the best of all worlds.
