Borgo Santinovo is an old medieval village that has been renovated and preserves all the charm of the typical architectural structures of that period: staggered roofs, porticoes, terraces, stone walls, practicable spaces scattered through the buildings.
The park spreads among the farmhouse units and includes a nice swimming-pool (11x8 m.), a solarium (10x10 m.), and a green lawn shaded by mulberry-trees, pines, oaks and cypresses. The whole village is surrounded by vineyards and olive-groves and it is located on a plateau in the hearth of the Chianti area, among the Siena hills. Next to the pool and the park a spacious charming hall with stone walls, a big fireplace, and wooden beams, is available for our guests and it is a perfect location for weddings, ceremonies and parties.
The apartments, wisely renovated, are comfortable and functional but maintain the charm and colours of a past time. Inside, they keep their authenticity, thanks to the typical furnishing, cotto floors and wooden beam ceilings. Each unit has a fully equipped masonry kitchen and telephone service.
In Borgo Santinovo, completely immersed in nature, you can spend a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
An ancient monastery dating back to the 1400's, located in the heart of the Chianti Colli Senesi area in the Municipality of Colle di Val d'Elsa. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, it is immersed in a typical Tuscan landscape. It rises on a plateau at an altitude of 250 metres, and its vineyards with south-eastern exposure are favoured by an optimal climate for the production of excellent wines.
The Taddei family bought the monastery in 1989 and has been completely refurbished. The vineyards have been completely replanted after an in-depth study of the soil. The attentive and constant care of the vineyards and the selected picking of the grapes (performed exclusively by hand) yield high quality wines, with aromas and flavours that enhance their characteristics. The innovative ideas of a young man with a passion for vine growing complemented by the wisdom and skilled hands of the older collaborators have made it possible to achieve a wonderful combination of new flavours and ancient tastes.
