Response from the owner Thank you so much for a great review and really pleased you both had a good time and enjoyed the apartment and the lovely Gaiole, don't hesitate to contact us if you ever fancy returning. Thank again John & Tracy
We stayed here for 3 weeks and found this location very central to the entire Chianti region. Heaps to do and see, great accommodation, the unit was extremely well appointed and the pool was a "God-send" especially when temperatures exceeded 45 deg C. Mosquitoes made their unwelcome presence known, their numbers may however diminish as the family of frogs in the garden increases over time. Underground parking was great too helping the car to stay cool. We really appreciated the extent of information available in the compendium which included clear instructuctions on how best to get to various places such as Siena and Firenze. We have to also endorse John's favourite restaurant, Ristorante Il Celliere a Castagnoli. Superb doesn't begin to describe our experience there!!! The locals of Gaiole In Chianti made us feel welcome, especially "Papa" at Tutte Birra. Thanks to John and Tracy for your hospitality.
Response from the owner Thanks Jill & Jim It really was nice to meet you both, and thanks for the good review, really pleased you enjoyed your stay and your visits to ll Celliere. Hope you a safe journey back to New Zealand.
Apartment - Gaiole in Chianti This apartment is located in a small traditional Tuscan village, right in the heart of Chianti country. The village is surrounded by vineyards on all sides, so you have no excuse not to sample the world famous Chianti wine. We visited a number of wineries over the course of our two week stay and learnt a great deal about wine production, we even ordered a number of cases to be sent home. The apartment itself is located on the upper slopes of the village, in Borgo Di Gaiole. The views from the garden over the surrounding countryside are fantastic. A real joy to sit outside just enjoying the view. John & Tracy ( owners ) use this apartment on a regular basis, so every conceivable home comfort / kitchen utensil is available for guests to use, including a good wi-fi service. The garden has a great tradition BBQ which we used on a number of occasions. The local butcher in the village sold us some amazing T-Bone steaks and it was a real pleasure to sit in the garden drinking the local wine and eating the local food. The village itself has 3 restaurants which provide good quality food, however depending on your budget, if you want outstanding cuisine, within a short drive are a number of fine dining restaurants which we would highly recommend. John provided full details of all the local restaurants plus endless other hints and tips. In our opinion you will need a hire car if you want to explore and experience the local area’s natural beauty. The drive from Pisa Airport is approx 2 hours and a mixture of motorway and local roads. All fairly easy if you are a confident driver with the help of Sat Nav. We also visited Siena, which is approx 40 mins drive away. John provided excellent instructions where to park within the city, which was approx 10 mins walk from the centre. If you want to visit Florence, we suggest you drive to Montevarchi and get the train directly into Florence. It’s very cheap ( approx €12 return ) and only takes 35 mins on the fast train ( please remember to get your tickets “authorised” in the machines before you get on the train, both there and on the way back – a strange system but straightforward once you remember ! ). Overall a wonderful holiday and I highly recommend this apartment. John and Tracy could not have been more helpful, providing help and information as and when required. The only small word of caution is the mosquitos, which are quite a pain in the evening’s if sitting outside. We did manage to overcome these, with a “battle plan” consisting of scents / fans and an Electronic Anti - Mosquito Lamp which John provided.
Response from the owner Thanks Andy really appreciate your review, pleased you enjoyed the apartment and the lovely village of Gaiole in Chianti.
