The elegant, finely restructured and renovated medieval hamlet of Borgo Scopeto offers luxury accommodation set in the hills of Chianti minutes away from Siena.
With 58 rooms offering all modern comforts, the estate has not lost its 14th century charm which you will see in the ceilings, floors and common areas, particularly in the tower where you can sit and plan your day.
The long, cypress lined driveway leads you into another world, as you go back in time during your time in Tuscany. Borgo Scopeto Relais is the perfect place to rest and enjoy the Tuscan countryside in the heart of the Chianti wine region.
Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards that produce the estate's fine Chianti Classico wines and extra-virgin olive oils, a stay at Borgo Scopeto Relais will offer a chance to get away from daily routines, relax and enjoy the fine pleasures of life.
From a delicious breakfast to start the day to gardens with a view that encourage you to sit, reflect and soak in the sun and calm atmosphere of country life, you can decide whether to stay put and go for a swim in either of the estate's two pools or pamper yourself in the spa/wellness center. If you feel more active, the estate has tennis courts, bikes and a fitness center to keep you on the estate but you can also go on walks or request at the reception help in organizing tours by Vespa or on vintage cars to explore the surrounding countryside.
The estate is ideal for hosting private events and weddings, as well as just being your base as you explore Chianti and Tuscany.
All of the rooms are tasefully furnished with a combination of rustic and modern, and there are no two alike. From classic to double bedrooms to junior and executive suites, there is something for everyone. All rooms have air-conditioning, LCD TVs with satellite channels, Wi-Fi internet access, safe, and courtesy kits in the bathrooms.
The hotel offers a restaurant with fine dining, a spa and gym. There are two outdoor pools and tennis courts.
The "Tinaia" restaurant, located in the old wine cellars of the Borgo, offers a romantic atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious local and regional flavors presented with original twists by the estate's chef.
Borgo Scopeto is just minutes from Siena, in the midst of vineyards that produce Chianti Classico and other fine Chianti wines. Siena is 10 km away while Florence just 76km. This area is perfect for setting out to visit Siena, Chianti and the Val d'Orcia to the south of Siena.
