Further details indoors

The apartment is much more than an ordinary rental apartment - more like a real home. You will almost find everything you need in the apartment.

The main living area consists of an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. There is a beautiful, old dining table which seats 6 comfortably and the lounge area seats 4 people.

One entire wall in the living area consists of floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which lead out onto a terrace, and can be folded back to create a wonderful light and airy living space in warm weather

'There are 2 bedrooms; The master bedroom which sleeps 2 and a further bedroom which sleeps 4, and has its own small terrace.

There are 2 bathrooms in the apartment.

Further details outdoors

Outside the apartment we have a table with seats, which we share with 2 others apartments. There is a very nice outside pool in the Borgo. Open from May until September/ October. This depends on the weather. The pool is not heated.

The whole Borgo is nice to just walk around in because it is so unique. Nowhere else will you find a new built Borgo in a very old style - just fantastic.

There is one parkingplace belonging to the apartment in the garage. There are also parking areas outside the Borgo.

Further details

A bottle of Chianti Classico and a plate of Italian cheese is waiting for you at the Enoteca Cantinetta in the Gaiole square. Ricardo, the owner of the Enoteca, will serve you at one of the tables outside.

The Tuscany region

"The Crete Senesi", the dramatic landscape of rounded hills, stately cypresses and isolated farms, is the Tuscany of postcards and posters.

Siena, the Gothic city, is only 26 km away and is home to the famous Palio horserace which takes place twice a year in the magnificant Piazza Il Campo,and the 14 "contradas" are fighting for the proud. Florence is about 50 km away in the other direction and there you can feel the history in every corner.

Tuscany is a perfect place to relax, close to the nature, taking long walks, cycling or horse riding. All around there are picturesaque villages to explore, full of history and character.

Everywhere you will see the vineyards procucing the grapes for the world famous Chianti Classico wines. Many of the wineries also produce the finest olive oil too. Why not combine a walk from winery to winery and taste the different wines. Food is also important in the region and there are lots of cooking classes to join and to feel the taste of Tuscan specialities.

Within 60-70 km you have the famous villages of Montalcino (Brunellowine), Montepulciano, Pienza (pecorino cheese)

and also the "Terme", why not try out a healthy spa experience.

Gaiole in Chianti

Around Gaiole you have lots of castles, some within walking distace, from the old Medieval, including Meleto, Barbischio, Spaltenna, Badia a Coltibuono. Not far away is also Brolio, where the wine industry started with Barone Ricasole back in the 12th Century.

There are many vineyards "just around the corner" some of them bigger and some small family owned ones too. Usually it is possible to try their wine and oil and also buy it directly (venditta diretta). Local street festivals take place celebrating wine, music, ceramics and much more. In the center of Gaiole there is a Tourist Information which can provide up-to-date information on local events.

Something popular is to join a cooking class and learn how to make the Tuscan food.

Keen walkers and cyclists will find plenty of routes on the doorstep, and horseriding is available locally.
