Review for stay from 09 September 2017 to 16 September 2017

5 of 5
The villa was lovely and each of the 5 bedrooms and baths were charming and supplied with luxury linens and toiletries. The kitchen was well equipped and the gathering areas, terrace and pool most attractive and well maintained. Caterina, the house manager, came by every day and took us grocery shopping twice since the COOPs( grocery stores) were hidden away frequently without parking nearby. Mid week she and her crew changed out all the linens and made sure we had what we needed. On arrival she had orange juice and Prosecco at hand to welcome us. She was a font of all information including helping us find CNN on the TV. We spent our days traveling easily to Siena, Florence, Radda, Greve, and San Giminango. The grounds of the villa were fragrant with lavender and rosemary and there were pots of thyme and basil for our culinary needs. The tiny town of Vertine was quaintly charming and the nearby town of Gaiole had good shopping for wine, cheese and meat. While there were only 5 of us the house would have been just as suitable for 5 couples. The five ladies from America had a wonderful week.

Fantastic base for exploring Tuscany

5 of 5
We had a great time in Gaiole in Chianti which is in the heart of the Chianti Classico region with outstanding views and plenty of wineries, picturesque villages and restaurants to explore. The Minore apartment was very well equipped and of a very high standard with plenty of facilities in the borgo including a gym and pool to relax in on hot summers days. Bikes were available but we had hired a car and decided to explore that way visiting Florence and Sienna which were well worth the trip. The file of information was invaluable giving great ideas of places to visit and a list of restaurants some of which we visited and were not disappointed. We certainly recommend Casacorvo and hope to be able to get there next year too.
