After considerable searching around Tuscany for a suitable apartment for a one week stay we happened across Borgo Tower.
The discovery I will attribute to our friends who shared the apartment with us, he attributes the shortening of the search to his wife who said "two bathrooms will make the week go much smoother".
All the bookings and communication was handle by my friends so I will leave it to them to comment, except to say that they told me "easy peasy lemon squezzy"
We drove from Bologna to Gaiole in Chianti using a Satnav, we got right to the front door so it is easy to find. After a quick unload and refresh we walked down into the village for a voyage of discovery. It is a really pleasant village, all the eateries, cafes, bars etc are fantastic, the people are really welcoming and the food and drink they are serving top class - Nothing is a problem.
The people who own the apartment spend a lot of time each year in the region and have compiled a folder of the whole Chianti region which we hammered for clues, tips and guides of places to go, things to see, food to eat.
With this attention to detail you would be very correct in assuming the apartment is in good order, very homely and relaxing with each room having plenty of area to spread out and relax. Plenty of the things you need for a weeks stay are there in the kitchen etc
The views across the valley are outstanding and one can sit and eat their breakfast/lunch/dinner or sip some wine while taking in this view.
I think I will just summarise and say for the price we paid we thought it was excellent value and a very good deal.
