We stayed at the apartment for a week in july. It is close to the small village Gaiole (5 min walk) with a small food market and a couple of restaurants. The pool is very nice, and seldom used by other guests when we were staying there. The apartment was perfect for us, traveling with two children 5 and 7...

We enjoyed Borgo Towers immensely. As a set of 2 couples, the two bedroom 2 bath accommodations provided all needed to appreciate our week stay. The information Jan-Y provided made it easy to make informed choices on side-trips and must-do's. The charming village of Gaiole provided several dining options and a market to fill in the blanks(don't touch the produce!;)...

About the neighbourhood
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 r...
