Charming B&B overlooking a small square in Gaiole. Maybe rooms would use some retouch, but we have stayed there twice (first stay in 2010) and would get back again. Simple breakfast is served on a terrace and though some may expect more, it will do. I promise:) it is not a place to stay at longer than 3/4 nights, but...

The best budget option if you are in Gaiole for a few days. The receptionists were very nice. Some rooms are smaller than others. I would recommend the bigger ones, since they have the same price. The terrace is very beautiful and the whole setting is idyllic.

This small pension is located in the heart of the pretty village of Gaiole. Rooms are good size and have all the necessary, however I don't understand why they cannot make an effort in furnishing them with a more modern tv or hairdryer. Price is very reasonable, but I believe they would attract many more visitors with small improvements, including...

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on tripadvisor. One of the few hotels who sadly did not live up to the reviews - at least for us! We stayed here for one night in August and we rate this hotel as average. We had a bad mattress where you could feel every single metal feather (those from the...

We stated here for one night after the Palio in Siena. It was a great value for money, we booked it for a very good price and overall we were happy with it. The staff was nice, they called us in the afternoon to ask when we'll arrive and late arrival was no problem. It was easy to find, half...

We stayed here for two nights in July 2013, and had a good experience. The hotel is in a lovely village in Chianti called Gaiole – the perfect spot for hiking and cycling activities, loads of routes/tours/maps/details provided by the local tourist office in the village (the woman who works there speaks brilliant English). The village is most famous for...

This B&B is well situated in the middle of the picturesque village of Gaiole in Chianti. It is approached by a steep flight of stone steps; another downpoint is that there isn't any nearby free parking. The owner gave us a nice welcome and made a much needed cup of tea. Our room was basic but had all the ingredients...

Gaiole in Chianti is a charming city and La Fonte del Cieco has the same spirit. La Fonte del Cieco is a warm and very comfortable ambient, in the main city square. The hostel is very charming, in a quite place and the room is clean and confortable. The breakfast is good and served in a small terrace.

For price/quality we could not do better ... the rooms are charming as is the village of Gaiole ... whether you head to Gaiole...
