Our stay at Villa Gaia has been magnificent. A nice family and a beautiful house with a nice garden. A lot of things to see in the surrounding area and very few other tourists in this unknown place of Italy.
A perfect getaway!

Villa Gaia Italia

Villa Gaia is a historical farmhouse in the midst of the vineyards, surrounded by a large garden with a swimming pool and a view which extends over plains of the river Po towards the mountain range of the Alps in the north.It is a country house which allows its guests to enjoy the tranquility and the relaxation which the place has to offer. It is situated in the first hills of the Oltrepò Pavese, in Santa Maria della Versa, in the province of Pavia. Its unique geographical position makes it easily possible to go on daytrip excursions to MilanPaviaGenoa or the Ligurian Sea.
The changing colours of the seasons, the rolling landscape and this combined with the art, history and culture present in this region, makes it that today many define the Oltrepò as the new Tuscany.
This area, sandwiched between Piemonte and Emilia-Romagna, lets itself easily be discovered by its variety of hills and mountains, woodscastlesmonasteries, villages and its excellent wines.
