An Italian gem, Tuscany provides the typical landscape, food and wine that make the country one of Europe's favourite holiday hotspots. With such cultural treasures as Florence, Siena and Pisa, Tuscany offers a wealth of tranquillity and history that is not easily rivaled.
The local vineyards produce some of the world's oldest and finest red wines some dating back to 12th Century. They offer opportunities to visit the ancient estates to see and taste wine and olive oil produced there. Combined with wide gastronomic variety means there is something for every taste and palate
It is the perfect place both for those who like to enjoy peace and relaxation, living in harmony with nature but spoiled by all the nearby services such as typical village shops, markets, banks, not to mention excellent restaurants, Wine, Olive oil, truffles, cheese, delicious cold meats and the worldwide famous " chianina" steak, are the essence of the lifestyle of this region.

"A Little Corner of Heaven"
This was our fourth visit to Gaiole in Chianti and our third stay in this apartment. The apartment is modern, well furnished and equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden is beautiful and a real bonus. It is a wonderful spot in which to sit and relax when not out enjoying all that this part of Tuscany has to offer. The apartment is close to the pool however not too close that the noise created ( which I have to confess to contributing to) when people are having fun is an issue. The Borgo is a little community. You quickly settle in to the rhythm of life and become part of the place. Gaiole is charming village. It is a great location to relax and unwind. So different to the hot, bustling cities. The local people are friendly and welcoming. If you are a real night owl who likes clubbing and partying this is not the place for you. If, however, you want an antidote to every day life this beautiful rural idyll that offers all that is good about Tuscany is a must.

"Lovely apartment in a great location"
We stayed for a week in John and Tracy's apartment in Gaiole and would have loved to stay for at least one more week! The apartment was very well equipped and had everything we could possibly need during our stay. We particularly liked the garden with the pergola. It was the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast and cup of coffee in the morning while taking in the stunning Tuscan hillside views. We also loved sitting in the garden in the evenings - there's even a gas heater to keep you warm in chilly nights (not that we had many of those...). The barbecue in the garden was also a plus (we had some excellent steaks from the butcher Chini in the village for our barbeque one evening). The location is very convenient as the apartment is just a couple of minutes walk away from the village where you can get your groceries or just relax with a glass of wine at the Enoteca. The village of Gaiole is also a great base for exploring the Chianti region by car as you can pretty much cover the whole area in less than an hour's drive in any direction. The whole process starting from our booking to our stay in Gaiole was immaculately managed by John and Tracy and communication was seamless - I would highly recommend the apartment and will definitely think about going back as soon as possible!

"THE PERFECT CHOICE"
We spent 8 nights here and it really was the perfect choice for us. The bijou apartment is immaculately kept and very comfortable. The outside terrace and garden are a huge bonus; we had breakfast outside every morning in the gazebo, with a gorgeous view of the surrounding countryside. We ate out all the time so did not need to use the kitchen, but had we chosen to, it had everything one could possibly need, and I mean everything! There is a huge beautifully maintained communal pool which we did not use but is good to have. A laundry is situated in the basement of the building and I was able to freshen up our clothes before moving on to the next stage of our holiday which was great. The lady who looks after the apartment also runs the local tourist office, which was most useful, as she booked several restaurants for us and recommended various things to do. Her office is in the centre of the village. The situation, midway between Sienna and Florence, in a pretty village called Gaiole. This meant getting around was easy and nowhere was a “long” drive. There are also numerous lovely hill top villages to visit, along with wine estates and restaurants. Local restaurants were excellent, our favourite being Marlborghetto, just a short drive away to a neighbouring village. We had the fresh pasta simply served with shavings of fresh truffle and good parmesan; I can taste it now, as I write this, followed by the rabbit stew which was delicious, all washed down with a good local Chianti. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone.

"The apartment was perfect and the location was great!"
We stayed a week and could have stayed much longer. The apartment is immaculate with everything you could possibly need. It was like working in my own kitchen. It is a short walk into a small, quaint town square surrounded by cafes, delicatessens, wine shops, a small supermarket and an equisite fruit shop. We wandered down each evening for a glass of wine and a pasta. Each day we made a little trip either locally to a vineyard, cafe, castle or local attraction. We took a bus to Siena and drove to Milan, We read books, lounged around the apartment, went swimming in the pool, drank beautiful wine, ate gorgeous food - what could be better?

"Fantastic stay in a beautiful setting"
Have just returned from a week stay in Gaiole in Chianti following l'eroica and everything you hear and read about the region is true - it really is idyllic and a perfect place to relax, visit local villages, cycle or walk around. Siena, which is equally stunning, is also barely 30 minutes away. The apartment is perfectly located with stunning views overlooking the village - it was great to sit out in the private garden in the morning and at sunset and just relax. However this wasn't at the expense of being away from the centre of the village and the amenities - it was not even a 5 minute walk to the deli, butcher etc. (and only 3 minutes to the local takeaway pizza - I timed it!). The apartment itself is very well appointed with seemingly everything thought of - there were even umbrellas that we could use when there was rain one morning. The 'borgo' also has a swimming pool and gym as well as plenty of parking nearby. From the initial booking, John and Tracy made everything very easy and the service was simple and hassle free. - we'd definitely go again!

"Beautifully equipped and an excellent base for a stay in Chianti"
We were delighted with this well-equipped apartment that had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in the heart of Chianti. It is conveniently located just 300 metres from the village centre and has a pretty garden/terrace with stunning views of the village and surrounding countryside. Facilities include a generously-sized shared swimming pool and access in the apartment to wireless. We appreciated the owners' generosity with respect to cooking ingredients. An excellent base for visits to Siena, Radda, and the castles and vineyards of Chianti.

"Cosy retreat in a great village location"
This property makes an excellent base to explore the Siena region or to just relax and chill out. The location is very convenient - the village is a couple of minutes' walk down a (rather steep) hill, where there are a number of good restaurants to choose from, as well as bars, specialist shops and a supermarket. The owners of the property, John and Tracy, obviously really care about the place and have fitted it out beautifully. Everything you could possibly need is provided, and we were particularly impressed by the well-stocked kitchen, which made cooking a pleasure. The apartment was perfectly clean and very well maintained. Communication with the owners before, during and after our stay was excellent. We didn't use the pool in the complex as the weather wasn't quite warm enough, but it was a good size and very clean with a nice terrace overlooking the village for sunbathing. If you're a couple or a solo traveller looking to stay in a village location, we would definitely recommend this place.

"A home from home with beautiful surroundings"
Stayed here for a week in sept with my husband and 6month old, had a wonderful time, excellent apartment with everything you need, this is by far the best equipped self catering place we have stayed in. Decorated to high standard we couldn't have asked for anything more, the owners where always on hand electronically. I would definitely stay again and have already recommended to anyone that will listen :-)

"Wonderful time in Gaiole"
Had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment in Gaiole. The apartment is stylishly furtnished and comes with every imaginable mod com. The location is perfect, just a short stroll to the village of Gaiole which has plently of very good restaurants. Its also a very good location from which to tour the chianti region, sienna, Florence or southern tuscany. The vineyards in the region are excellent and well worth a visit. Most have beautiful restaurants. Badia a Coltibuono and Brolio are about 10 minute drive and both are excellent. The wine tour in Brolio is not to be missed if you like wine. The welcome package we received from John and Tracy was great and set the tone for the holiday. There is a beautiful garden to sit in in the evening and the Borgo is so well designed to fit into the surrounding countryside. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning ourselves at a future date.

We really coudn't have asked for more, a relaxing week with, excellent food and wine in a fabulous location and wonderful accommodation. We had a few drives and walks around the area and saw some breath taking scenery. We enjoyed visiting a few of the local restaurants, especially the one in Splatana, where we enjoyed a very special meal for our wedding anniversary. We also ate in with some decilous meats from the local butchers. We also had some lazy days relaxing at the beautiful pool with fabulous views of the village. We really appreciated the information file and your directions to Sienna. You have really thought things through for your guests. Visting Gaiole in Chianti at the fabulous apartment and garden, will be rembembered as one of our best holidays. Thank you.
