“Homely apartment, great garden and views....loved it!”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Fab apartment - Beautiful garden, deck and views
Restaurants in easy walking distance
Well equipped kitchen
Owners sent a really useful information pack and were very helpful
Using the laundry and gym (no extra charges for either) was easy once we found them - down one level at the lift using key fob
Pool is great for swimming lengths, but a little chilly even in August!

“Fantastic apartment from which to explore Chianti by relax and relax by night”

We have stayed in other apartments in Borgo Gaiole regularly for the past few years however the accommodation had always been fairly basic, meaning we spent as much time out and about as possible. This time we did our research and having read the reviews on this particular apartment booked immediately. We have not been disappointed! The quality of the inside and outside areas shine through and make for an extremely relaxing environment, be it on an evening after a day exploring Chianti or just to spend a peaceful day unwinding under the pergola with a good book. This was more like spending time as a guest in someone's home, with the high quality linens and towels, and well equipped kitchen and living areas, rather than some of the rather more cold self-catering accommodation we have experienced previously. The guest information that John and Tracy provided enabled us to discover some fantastic local restaurants that we had never come across before. Highly recommended!

“Tuscan Gem!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We arrived at the apartment and fell in love! The apartment is perfect for a couple looking to escape the rat race and relax. The owners have equipped the apartment to a very high standard and have thought of everything including a picnic box! We enjoyed lazying around the pool reading but I actually spent a lot of time in the stunning garden. Dealing with the owners was very easy. They responded to emails promptly (even though I bombarded them!) and made us feel very welcome in their home. They provided us with lots of information about what we could do in Gaiole and the surrounding area, which was extremely helpful.

Gaiole itself has something for everyone. We enjoyed going into town at lunch time for a drink.

If you are looking for beautiful scenery, pure relaxation and owners who genuinely want you to enjoy their home, this is the place to go. Highly

“Without Doubt Highly Recommended”

We were kept well informed and updated from the booking stage to payment, then we received a welcome pack before we departed with maps, directions, places to visit etc. which proved very helpful. On arrival the apartment was immaculately clean, the extra touch was slippers and soap on our bail of fluffy white towels. Lots of space to hang your clothes and drawer space. The kitchen if fully equipped with everything you need, John & Tracy have thought of everything, making you really feel at home, making our holiday more enjoyable as we were able to relax in our comfortable surroundings.
The Pièce de résistance was the private garden, many a long night was spent under the pergola with the beautiful view, there was a brief thunder storm one night but we were still able to sit under the protected pergola with the patio heater on and watch the storm…. Amazing.
The village of Gaiole is just a short walk, the locals are very friendly and there is everything you need. Restaurants…. there are lots we went to a few recommended by J & T and were not disappointed. Highly Recommended.

We booked this apartment solely on the strength of the reviews on tripadvisor and we were delighted with our one week stay. It was everything the other reviewers have said: very well presented, very clean, comfortable and homely, everything thought of and provided, great central location for the Chianti region, lovely views and and and......Communication with and information from the owners was outstanding and demonstrated their care and concern that we should enjoy our holiday! So happy with everything!

“Wonderful stay in a lovely setting”

I have traveled extensively and stayed in many apartments, but I have never been in an apartment so beautifully set up and well stocked. Everything you needed for a comfortable stress free stay was there. And everything from the booking to the arrival was simple; John and Tracy and friendly and helpful. They have a well detailed binder full of great suggestions of places of interest nearby. The apartment is perfect for a couple - may be a bit small for more. The views of the town of Gaiole from the lovely pergola were just lovely. And it is wonderfully located just a short walk into town; perfect for a cappuccino in the morning, or afternoon. Short drives get you to wineries in every direction - Gaiole is truly in the centre of the Chianti region, so nothing is far away from this home base. And after a long day touring about, it was great to come home to a gorgeous, impeccably clean kitchen that is well stocked and a delight to cook in; for a light meal and of course, one or two final classes of Chianti Classico!

If you're looking for a base to explore the area or somewhere to go and hide for a few weeks, this is the perfect choice for either. The apartment has everything you might think you need. John and Tracy have gone out of their way to give you excellent advice and recommendations, which were really valuable. It is in the most beautiful setting and really shows Tuscany for what it is - just lovely!
On a practical note, I would commend you take some insect repellant if you visit in summer.
