Toscana - Siena - SIENA


RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Borgo Gallinaio is set in an enchanting position in the centre of an estate that extends for 40 hectares and is framed by an authentic green lung of Turkey oaks, holm oaks and olive trees, ideal for practicing sport and enjoying extraordinary natural landscapes, within the area of the Sienese Montagnola and near the access to the renowned Via Francigena. The property reflects all the charm of old 15th century Tuscan buildings still visible in the stratification of the buildings and in the original architecture, which has remained intact, of the borgo. Once past the surrounding walls, you find yourself in a large internal courtyard around which open all the entrances of the residential units that make up the borgo. Sixteen spacious bedrooms, with air conditioning and private bathroom, the large living room and professional kitchen united in the imposing central body, substantial equipped outdoor areas and the swimming pool, immersed in an immense park, make the borgo the ideal place to host family reunions or to accommodate large groups of friends who wish to spend a relaxing stay in a secluded setting, albeit very close to the most beautiful and prestigious attractions of this part of Tuscany. The generosity and beauty of the outdoor areas make the location particularly suitable for events and ceremonies. The property is located less than 2 km from Monteriggioni, a 13th century fortified borgo set on a panoramic hill, dominating the slopes planted with vineyards and olive trees; just a short distance from Siena and also in an excellent position for visiting the entire Chianti region, dotted with numerous castles transformed into wineries and medieval towns where you will be conquered by splendid landscapes and ancient buildings. Within the property, on request, it is possible to taste and buy the extra virgin olive oil produced by the estate, to organise lessons in typical cuisine in the large professional kitchen, and to avail yourself of staff and a personal chef for your entire stay.



The complex follows the typical structure that is historically defined as "courtyard house", consisting of a main body and a separate annex (located opposite) composed of several residential units, for a total of about 1200 sq m and organised around a central courtyard where all the various entrances are located. MAIN BODY. On three floors. On the ground floor, through the courtyard, you enter the main door which opens into a large living room with sofas and TV area. A short corridor leads to the dining room, connected to the professional kitchen which, through a French window, leads to the courtyard set up for outdoor dining and to a service bathroom. The ground floor is completed by three double bedrooms (two with divisible bed) with private bathroom with shower. An external staircase next to the main entrance leads up to the first floor where, crossing a terrace equipped with tables, you come to a living room with fireplace and six bedrooms: a double with ensuite bathroom with shower and tub, a twin (with joinable beds) served by a bathroom with tub and shower, and four doubles (two with divisible bed) with ensuite bathroom with shower. On the second floor, accessed from the first floor corridor via a simple spiral staircase, is a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. It is located in front of the main building and develops on the ground floor. It includes three double bedrooms with en suite bathroom with shower, each with independent access and not internally communicating. ANNEX. Located in front of the main building, on the ground floor are three double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower, each with independent access and not communicating internally. The laundry is located in an external room on the back of the kitchen. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.


48 hectares of land surround the borgo, distributed amongst extensive woodland, immense arable fields, meadows and a vast olive grove where you can walk or practise sport, immersed in nature. The park pertaining to the borgo extends for about 4 hectares and includes areas paved in terracotta, with seats and small tables, and areas of lawn embellished with tall trees, olive and fruit trees and thick bushes of herbs. In the courtyard onto which all the entrances open, particularly that of the kitchen, a dining area has been set up with tables and chairs with, close by, a wood oven and barbecue. A large loggia a short distance from the courtyard and the terrace on the first floor of the main house are perfect relaxation areas, where you can sit and admire the panoramic views. Next to the structure is a large parking area. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The swimming pool is located in the part of the park that borders the wood and is surrounded by tall shady trees. It can be reached from the courtyard along an internal path of about 350 m. Rectangular and measuring 8 x 10 m with a constant depth of 1.40 m, it is lined in PVC and bordered by travertine paving. It has chlorine purification, a metal ladder for access to the water and internal lighting, which is also present throughout the surrounding area. The lawn, part of the sunbathing area, is equipped with umbrellas, sunbeds and a cold-water shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Borgo Gallinaio is set in the hills between the Sienese Montagnola region, a large green area classified as a Site of Community Interest, and the Val d’Elsa, in the centre of Tuscany and two kilometres from the borgo of Monteriggioni. Renowned for being one of the most beautiful and visited medieval borghi in the area north of Siena, which is just a few kilometres away, Monteriggioni is located in a hilly position and offers superb views over expanses of vines and olive groves that stretch through the valley. It was built by the Sienese in the 13th century as the last border bulwark against the enemy, Florence. Still today, the castle of Monteriggioni appears as imposing and majestic as a crown, due to the walls dotted with 14 towers and interspersed with two imposing access gates, also mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy. In July, the borgo with its large central square comes alive with a wonderful medieval festival Monteriggioni di torri si corona (Monteriggioni is crowned with towers) which represents a real plunge into the past which in these areas is still very much alive, thanks to the presence of towns and areas of inestimable historical value. This area represents, for those wishing to spend a holiday in Tuscany, not only the ideal destination to visit the world famous art cities such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano and Volterra, but also a place to rediscover natural, landscape and gastronomic riches of undisputed value that are sublimated in the lands of Chianti, which border the whole area. The property is located a short distance away and is easily reachable from the regional airports, those of Florence (70 km away) and Pisa (88 km away). The closest motorway exits (Autostrada del Sole) are respectively 57 km away (Firenze Impruneta exit, for those coming from the north) and 61 km away (Valdichiana exit, for those coming from the south), but thanks to the motorway connections the distances are quickly covered. The Siena railway station is 16 km away and in 10 minutes you can get to the supermarkets and the main shopping areas of Siena.
