Castello di Gargonza is a very unique place – a mixture of medieval castle and (once abandoned) hamlet between Arezzo and Siena that is now exclusively available, in its entirety, for guest stays.
It is a gorgeous sight – a classic Tuscan hilltop village, the castle tower which now serves as a reception area being its highest point. It has 1000 acres of peaceful forest surrounding it too and the views are breathtaking all around.
The accommodation, a mixture of B&B rooms and self catering apartments is not in what is left of the castle itself but in the surrounding village houses – beautifully, carefully restored, they all feel tremendously historic and authentic but still contain plenty of subtle modern comforts (though no TVs are allowed – to keep the medieval magic alive somewhat).
All guests have a swimming pool and a top class restaurant, La Torre di Gargonza, at their disposal as well as a rustic bar cafe and lots of place to roam around or lounge – shady lemon gardens, woodland walks and benches to stop and take in the views.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Staying here was so fun! My husband and I wish we had more time. Driving up to a castle to stay in was such a cool experience in and of itself. From the moment we brought our luggage in to the moment we left, was an absolute dream. I could have spent hours in the shared rooms if we had the time. There’s so much of the family’s history around— I couldn’t soak it all in! So picturesque….”
“Unique experience staying in an actual castle. There were separte dining rooms beautfully arranged. Great views of Siena from the top tower and the most intersting luggage elevator we’ve ever seen. Friendly host. Comfy beds. Highly recommend for a unique experience….”
