The apartments at Borgo della Meliana are luxurious and comfortable, offering all modern comforts in a historical setting.
The property offers a large garden and two swimming pools, a regular sized one and a smaller one perfect for children. Centrally located to the south of Florence in Chianti, the country villa apartments are the ideal location for relaxing and visiting the main cities in Tuscany.
The property was originally a main villa with two other buildings used as cellars, shed and granary, all dating back to the year 1325. The whole complex today hosts 11 apartments and small villas, each with 2-3 bedrooms, some with an outdoor loggia and others with a small private garden. There is a large common garden, an outdoor oven area, the two swimming pools and rooms for breakfast.
Borgo della Meliana is one of the few farms in the area listed as a common "artistic and cultural heritage" and as it was restructured and restored it had to be done so respecting strict rules to safeguard the original historical building.
The villa apartments
The quality of the apartments is very high. Rooms have been furnished with painstaking attention to every detail in line with the style and taste of Tuscan houses: furniture and furnishing complements are mostly antique and have been found following a long and patient search in the area.
The eleven apartments are tastefully decorated, traditional materials have been used and warm shades of colour are harmoniously combined to give each room a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. Each room is unique, with its own exclusive charm to make guests feel at home and at ease in an environment that is at once elegant and familiar. Borgo della Meliana aims to make your holiday in Tuscany an unforgettable experience.
