A charming hamlet in the Chianti region, Borgo Pietra offers luxury self catering apartments in Tuscany, and bed and breakfast rooms with breathtaking views across typical Tuscan countryside, not far from the town of Castellina.
The estate is a beautiful sun bleached hamlet spread out over the hilltop surrounded by immaculate walled gardens and lush and well tended lawns.
The apartments are split between five separate buildings and each has its own entrance. Spacious and extremely well furnished with echoes of the care and attention to detail shown in the gardens they offer a comfortable home from home in the desirable Tuscan mould.
The 8 bed and breakfast rooms are in the main building and are quiet and relaxing with elegant tiled floors and fine furnishings. There are standard and superior room, superior rooms being larger and having a large en-suite bathroom with bath tub. All rooms have satellite TV, en-suite bath/shower room, hairdryer, telephone and Wi-Fi internet. A sumptuous buffet breakfast is served in one of the old wine cellars.
The immaculate restoration took over 5 years to complete as the artisans were allowed to take their time renovating the white washed walls, cotto brick floors and beamed ceilings by hand. The interiors are unfussy yet homely with watercolours on the walls, of local sights, and a pleasing blend of modern rustic furniture with a few well chosen antiques to welcome you.
The location of this borgo in the heart of Chianti is unsurpassed, the views, breathtaking as it is close to one of the main towns of the area Castellina, where you’ll find a number of good restaurants and shops. Relaxation is assured, the service unsurpassed and the quality of the finish incredible. This borgo offers the traveller an opportunity to live the Tuscan dream and we have no doubt that you’ll never want to leave: we didn’t.
