Borgo Finocchieto, unique among Tuscan properties, is a beautiful luxury hotel elegantly restored eight hundred year old village, or “borgo,” with stunning views located thirty minutes south of Siena and very close to Montalcino in the Brunello wine growing district.
During the restoration, wherever possible, the historical dwelling were left untouched. One can still see the historic wood-burning oven, which is more than 500 years old, and the soft grooves in the brick staircase made by thousands of passing feet. An ancient stone-carved Borghese crest greets visitors outside the dining room, gracing the entryway as it has done for centuries, an indication of prior ownership by the powerful Sienese family.
The Borgo encompasses 22 beautiful suites in the manor house and 4 village home, arranged around a central piazza functioning as its own community. Each suite is rich of comforts like air conditioned, minibar, ipod with surround speaker, and a very large bathroom with tube and shower.
Gathering spaces include a formal dining room and outdoor dining terrace, living room with grand piano and study, screening room, library, bar, conference facility for up to 50, cantina and wine tasting room, a professional teaching kitchen, an interior arcaded courtyard, a piazza, and extensive lawn and garden spaces with various shaded benches and a gazebo.
Recreational facilities include a 60′ oval swimming pool, a state of the art fitness center, spa, tennis and basketball court, and bocce court. Individual suites are ample, luxurious, and private, while the public spaces encourage people to draw together for community to form and flourish naturally.
Many extra activities are available for guests, including horseback riding, mountain bike excursion, relaxing massages, hot air balloon flights, cultural tours, wine and oil tasting tours, but particularly interesting are the cooking classes, directly managed by the chef of Borgo, who will teach you how to prepare delicious Tuscan meals, starting with the selection and purchase of ingredients from local shops and markets, to end with a tasty dinner.
The cuisine and service available at Borgo Finocchieto uphold the Tuscany traditions of outstanding wine, delicious food and friendly hospitality, which has been cultivated for centuries.
