Our apartment, Borgo di Gaiole, in the small town of Gaiole in Chianti had been built on the edge of a hill, from where we had views of the surrounding vineyards, small castles, bell tower, sunrises, moon rises and sunsets. The small market, green grocer, bakery and delicatessen provided sumptuous ingredients for our kitchen. Our only meal out was at Ristorante Malborghetto, in Lecchi in Chianti, the best restaurant in the Gaiole region.
We enjoyed views of the surrounding hills with their olive groves, vineyards, wineries and castles. There were lovely sunrises, moonrises and sunsets from our back deck.
