About Jan-Yngve Swenson
We are a Swedish couple from Västerås. After our retirement, we moved to Gaiole in Italy. Why Italy? Well, because of the climate, the people, the wines, and also because of the wonderful landscapes in the Chianti region. Additionally, our daughter and her family live in Milan. Her husband is Italian, and though he grew up with red wine, he particularly treasures the unique wine made in Gaiole, the Chianti Clasico.

Why Jan-Yngve Swenson chose Gaiole In Chianti
We searched a long time before finding what we wanted in the form of Borgo di Gaiole. To us, everything here is spot-on: a fantastic new building in the style of an old castle, and a central location among all facilities, which is important to us. We also had a look at some countryside properties, but then a car would have been indispensable for visiting a restaurant, a bar, a coffee shop, or for going to the convenience store.
What makes this Apartment unique
Here, we have everything we need in the near vicinity: wineries, restaurants, the cities of Siena and Florence, and even Rome is not too far away. Ideal for a successful holiday!

The apartment is located a 5-minute walk away from the city centre of Gaiole, which offers common facilities for your daily needs such as restaurants, wine merchants, banks, grocery stores, a butcher's shop, a clothing store, a souvenir shop, and many more. Gaiole is an ancient city in the famous Chianti region. Other historic, picturesque towns in the surroundings and the Chianti region are Radda, Greve, and Castelina. Additionally, the city of Siena is only 25 km away and Florence (Firenze in Italian) is just 80 km away. There are about 35 smaller or larger wineries in the rural area around Gaiole. In most of them offer wine tastings and of course you can buy their wines on site. Besides the first-class Chianti Classico wine, self-produced olive oil is also offered. Both the wine and olive oil are top-notch quality products. The entire region is famous for its red wines, but also the white ones are top of the line. As of today, plenty of winemakers also produce rosé wines.
Around Gaiola, there are plenty of hiking routes, on which one advances quickly with map and compass at hand. Cycling is one of the most popular sports in Italy, among both professionals and amateurs. The Chianti region is no exception to this. Apart from the locals, also tourists love renting a bicycle for discovering the routes. Still, well-trained sports enthusiasts have a clear advantage here, as the hilly stretches require a certain level of fitness. Here, cycling happens on the regular roads. Being a tourist in the Chianti region, you just cannot miss a visit to Siena or Florence! These two marvellous cities offer more than just a few things as for culture, shopping, and the culinary. When we are staying in Gaiole ourselves, it is simply part of the tradition to visit a couple of bars on the famous market square in Siena for enjoying a light lunch with a glass of wine. Although Siena's market square is one of the most popular sites for tourists visiting Italy, prices are still favourable. There is none of the typical tourist traps. Off course, for those who love shopping, Siena and Florence host branches of almost every Italian quality brand. Bargain hunters can find brand clothing at reduced prices in one of the innumerable outlet stores in the region. You can find such outlets Incisa and Barberino, among others. Gaiole is located, as mentioned before, in the region of Siena and Florence, however Rome is, at a distance of 250 km, not that hard to reach either. If you do not want to travel to Rome by car, you could take the train in Montevarchi (21 km away from Gaiole).
