“Very comfortable home away from home”
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!”
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...”
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.
“It was truly magical and fairy.”
I went to tuscany with my boyfriend and couple friend of mine. As soon as we have arrived we were blown away by the view from the terrace over Gaiole... the smell from its gardenia was exhilarating... We were very impressed by the whole house and its decoration.. we could feel tuscany at CasaCorvo and at the same time at home (love the game boards and Cd's)... and the fountain!!! Whow! The house location is priceless!!! We could find anything we need at the kitchen even a pic-nic basket!! We wish we could have used the terrace (there were a table and terrace chairs) to have our meals but the weather did not help. Concerning the others facilities, they were fantastic but we had no time to use them... Maybe next time ;) (I will return for sure ;)) There's no words to describe how overwhelmed we were about everything (from the house until the landscape). It is important to mention the kindness, helfullness and flexibility of the owner without him our dream could never come true. Thank you Phil, again.
“Perfect holiday base for visiting central tuscany”
We had a lovely time at Casacorvo Minore - the apartment was perfect - everything you need to enjoy your stay. Easy walking distance to the centre of Gaiole, where there were some lovely restaurants, and a fantastic takeaway pizzeria! Supermarket had everything we need and there were some other lovely little shops to get treats. Wine tasting was within walking distance (involved beautiful walks in the tuscan hills). Only downside was the weather - would probably not go in november again, as a bit wet and the wine tasting was slowing down!
“Comfort and relaxation in Chianti”
We enjoyed everything about Casacorvo. The view from the terrace is still in our minds weeks after we returned. Those beautiful rolling hills and the view over to Barbischio. Great pool which, in September was very quiet. We visited Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Arezzo andthe wine festival at Greve in Chianti. Nice local wine left by Phil was much appreciated. The facilities in the Borgo were great. Gaiole is lovely and friendly and you don't have to go far to find nice meals and bars.
“No need to continue searching that's the place!”
We spent a magnificent one week in this beautiful apartment with my wife on our honeymoon. It is very well equipped and simply perfect. The apartment is big enough (I can say even for 4 person) and absolutely clean. A very important and great extra is the balcony which is more likely to be a garden. It is 100%-ly private and it was very lovely to have our breakfast with sunshine and nice view over the hills and the village. Gaiole in Chianti is a very good place to make trips on foot and by car in several parts of Tuscany (we even went to the sea). You can easily reach Siena or Florence, but there are smaller cities like San Gimignano or Radda in Chianti which you should not miss. The city itself is very peaceful and quiet, there is a shop close to the apartment and a winery as well. We will return for sure!
“A lovely apartment in a magical setting”
We stayed for 5 nights and wished we didn't have to leave so soon. Everything in the apartment was of good quality and we slept very well. The garden terrace was lovely, overlooking the village and church with rolling hills in the background.It was a bonus to be able to walk to shops and restaurants and all the locals were very welcoming and friendly. Gaiole was very much a local's village with a lovely bustling ambience - we had some good walks to other hill villages. The proximity to Siena made for a great day out,we took the local bus which saved the hassle of parking. Also recommended is San Gimignano which was very atmospheric and a scenic 1 hour drive away.
“Great Apartment and Brilliant Base for sightseeing”
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casacorvo Minore. It is a lovely apartment and well equipped. Very comfortable and the terrace has a good view of the surrounding area so is a great place to sit and chill! The pool is great. It is a fantastic base for sight seeing. Giaole has shops (loved the butchers) and a small supermarket which is a few minutes walk away (longer on the way back because of the hill!!) and some good restaurants. Phil (the owner) was really helpful with plenty of advice before we went. All in all a fantastic week and would definitely go back.
Stayed in this apartment for 6 days. The facilities were great, everything you needed was provided. The welcome bottle of local wine was a lovely touch. The swimming pool was beautiful and we were often the only ones using it. Giaole is a beautiful town and you can get everything you need from there (although due to our poor planning we often missed the opening hours) Two great pizzerias, lovely restaurants for late night Chianti. I can't wait to come back!!
