Il posto dove rilassarvi e godervi il bello della toscana
Mr. Alberto and Mrs. Pia, the owners of the estate, were born and raised in Tuscany and more precisely in Cortona and Foiano della Chiana. They spent their whole lives in this area making investments and buidling stunning villas. They recently decided to dedicate two of the villas of the estate to their grand-children, GIOIA and LAPO and this is the reason why the estate itself was named GIOLA by combining the initials of their names.
The GIOLA estate consists of two villas, villa GIOIA and villa LAPO; the two villas are totally independent but located in close proximity to one another. Each villa has an independent entrance and a private front yard. The swimming pool (23 x 46 feet), fully equipped with sun beds and beach umbrellas, is surrounded by a large olive-tree, cypress and pine-tree garden conveying a great sense of harmony.
Both villa GIOIA and villa LAPO were fully restored in April 2006 and may for this reason provide guests with real Tuscan style as well as all modern comforts and amenities.
The hilltop location of the estate allows guests to enjoy a stunning view over a variety of medieval villages and hamlets standing all around such as Lucignano, Monte San Savino, Cortona and Civitella and easily reach all major culture and art cities such as Siena, Florence and Assisi. Driving from the estate you may also spend unforgettable days in the Tuscan country-side of the Val d’Orcia, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. The latter itineraries are ideal for all lovers of good wine, Tuscan bread and good cheese.
Our villas may be rented separately or together depending on your needs and/or the requests of our guests. If your party is larger than 16 people we will be able to provide you with further accommodation close by the villas. Mr. Alberto and Mrs. Pia decided to make their wonderful estate available to all those wishing to spend their holidays in our spectacular region and those wishing to arrange their wedding, anniversary, birthday party here or wishing to attend an Italian language course or go on mountain bike tours, wine and cheese tasting tours and tours of the Chianti and its castles.
During your stay the staff of our estate will be glad to cater to all of your needs, help you know our region better and recommend restaurants, shops and all you may possibly need.
