What we love
It is a testament to the stunning skill and professionalism of the design team on Villa Gauggiole, that one can quite imagine a noisy Italian farming family squeezed around the table of the kitchen and huddled together in front of the hearth, yet feel enveloped in luxury and peaceful calm in the house′s latest incarnation.
Spread across three buildings, and nestled among the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco Estate’s vineyards, Villa Gauggiole once housed a farmer whose job it would have been to tend the land it overlooks, and his family.
Textiles, antiques and one-off pieces by local craftsmen, respecting local methods and traditions, are fluently brought together to create a homely space. Today, stylishly restored, yet preserving its history in the stone walls and wooden-beamed ceilings, up to eight guests will find this villa both sophisticated and spellbinding.
For al fresco dining, the terrace overlooks beautiful gardens, and the villa features a private outdoor heated swimming pool. As with all villas on the Estate, the Riccardo Barthel-designed kitchen is pure Italian style combined with practical details to make cooking a pleasure. Personal chefs can be arranged for your stay if desired.
