Borgo Scopeto Relais, a jewel among the hills of Chianti

A corner of paradise with views over the Mangia Tower and the Siena cathedral’s belfry.Borgo Scopeto is a typical Tuscan estate with delightful views of the famous city of Siena which is only a few minutes away. This estate, which for five centuries was the residence of the famous Sozzini dynasty, is now one of the most exclusive hotels in the area. A glorious past enlightening the present with all the elegance of yesterday.The estate has a surface of 482 hectares, divided in 400 hectares of woods, and 70 hectares of vineyard producing about 350,000 bottles of wine a year, and 6,500 olive trees. The owner is Elisabetta Gnudi, who bought the estate in 1997 and turned it into a luxury hotel, which was even chosen by director Gary Winick for the movie “Letters to Juliet”, with Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero.  The Borgo Scopeto has been beautifully restored – work has lasted for 5 years – with the specific aim of bringing back the original 14th century charm.

The hotel has 58 elegant rooms in 14th century style and are all different from each other. Some have an independent entrance and overlook the gardens. Others have stunning views of Siena’s countryside or of the charming little village, and make guests feel they have stepped back into the Middle Ages. Same Sienese style has the “La Tinaia” restaurant, where each detail contributes to create a romantic atmosphere with a menu of genuine local and regional flavors.

Let yourself be enveloped by the magical atmosphere of the wellness center, with the spa located in the old Borgo’s stable. The wellness program includes sauna and steam bath to relax and regenerate the boby, a  Jacuzzi and a complete cosmetic line inspired by the fruit of the earth. This charming center is set in the green Tuscan countryside, a beautiful scenery that contributes to the wellness of your mind. A gym, two swimming pools and two tennis courts complete the offer dedicated to wellness and sport. Enjoy the sunset from the rolling Chianti hills, while strolling around the village or relaxing beside the swimming pool, this is how Borgo Scopeto Relais pampers you. An enchanted place that will bring you in a new dimension between past, present and future.
