Midway between Siena and Florence lies Gaiole in Chianti -
a thriving town in the heart of Tuscany.
Famed for its wine, castles and churches, this is idyllic Tuscany at its best. Explore the local monasteries, vineyards, farms and beautiful countryside.
Perhaps take a picnic made up of local cheeses, and some wine from your hotel's extensive cellar, and set off for the Tuscan hills.
The stunning cities of Florence and Siena are also just a short drive away, where you can see world famous art, history and sculptures. Why not hire a car to explore this region with ease?
