To the rear, a breakfast/BBQ terrace is enhanced by a wall fountain envoking the soft sounds of Tuscany.

The apartment is fully equipped for up to four guests with the lounge sofa bed making for an easy conversion to a second double bedroom.

Getting around

A car is recommended, as local bus services are limited. There are daily buses into Siena, and it is possible to reach Florence by bus via a change. Our nearest mainline station is Montevarchi, and our most adventurous guests have managed a 'day trip' to Venice!

Interaction with guest

For us, one of Gaiole’s greatest attractions is just to slow down and enjoy the place of village life, but for those of you who just have to stay active, here are a few notes on fourteen things which we never tire of doing, and that still excludes an epic day trip to Venice!. You’ll notice a certain theme of food – but that’s all part of being on holiday! We’re sure you’ll have your own ideas, but this might help get you started.

“Very comfortable home away from home”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2015

Casacorvo Minore is a very comfortable apartment well located in the heart of Chianti. It has great views from its veranda which fostered perfect starts for each day as we had breakfast sitting in the morning sun. A glass or two in the afternoon was also most pleasant. It helped that the weather was great throughout our stay in Gaiole.

“Charming accommodations and beautiful surroundings!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

My husband and I stayed for four nights in this wonderful and clean apartment in the heart of Chianti. Phil was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and our stay even going so far as to stock the fridge with basics as we arrived on Easter and stores were closed. The apartment itself was very comfortable with everything that you would need to make for a pleasant stay including a red binder full of recommendations for places to eat and visit. The terrace is absolutely lovely! The center of town was a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) with some great restaurants and the Coop Grocery. We highly recommend it for anyone looking to stay within short beautiful drives to surrounding towns or to simply relax in a gorgeous setting. We will be back!

“A little piece of heaven on earth...”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2014

Casacorvo Minore -- what a perfect place to call home for six days! Phil was terrific to deal with right from our first enquiry. (And we had the added pleasure of meeting him at the tail end of our vacation.) He was very accommodating, allowing us to arrive earlier in the day on our arrival day and leave later on our last day if we wanted to. The apartment was spotless and had pretty much everything we could have wanted. We were greeted with a box of local wine, which we thoroughly enjoyed - especially while relaxing on the amazing patio area overlooking the picturesque town of Gaiole. After a busy first week of vacation, having such a relaxing and comfortable place to call home was very welcome. One of our favorite things to do was enjoy our espresso and breakfast on the patio every morning. The onsite property managers were great and everything was very well-maintained. The town itself was lovely. And the wineries all around the area were amazing! Such friendly people and amazing wines! (We wrote about some of our favorites in Phil's guestbook!) Make sure you go to Riecine winery and Le Contrade Ristorante (which Phil recommended to us for our last night - best meal and dining experience we've ever had anywhere). There's a very helpful binder in the apartment with info about all sorts of restaurants, wineries and things to do in the area. We would absolutely recommend this apartment to others - and in fact, have already.
