Borgo di Castelvecchio is an ancient medieval village in the Val d'Orcia, composed of a main villa and eight restored stone farmhouses situated in a pristine and authentic setting, but still very near to Montepulciano and Pienza, of which it offers an enchanting view.
The property has 32 guestrooms and Suites, two meeting halls, two salons, a small church and two swimming pools. Each house is completely independent and has been restored preserving the original architecture and materials. Privacy and tranquility are the fundamental elements of all the houses to insure a regenerating holiday far from the noise of the cities.
Guests begin the day with a delicious breakfast served in the charming Granary, where they can indulge in fresh ricotta cheese, home baked cakes, honey and jams, all made on the estate. The Granary also offers tasty lunches and candlelit dinners in a distinctive atmosphere. After dinner you can enjoy a game of billiards while sipping on some exquisitely sweet vin santo accompanied by the local almond biscuits called cantuccini.
Borgo di Castelvecchio boasts a lavender scented garden that surrounds one of the swimming pools, as well as a hunting preserve with almost 2,000 acres of woods and fields that shelter pheasants, deer, roebuck and wild boar. The Italian Federation of Equestrian Sports (FISE) has recognized the Castelvecchio riding center; here children can learn to ride and adults can improve their horseback riding style with advice from two instructors.
