Apartments in Farmhouse: Borgo Rapale


Location: charming farmhouse with familiar atmosphere in a very panoramic site strategically located to visit the main touristic destinations of Tuscany and Umbria and the regions of the Chianti and Brunello wines.
The small hamlet was obtained by restructuring a typical Tuscan farm. It is immediately adjacent to a villa, which has been inhabited since 1520 by the proprietor’s family that receives and entertains guests as friends. The welcoming simplicity of their lifestyle dates back to a bygone age. The proprietors are always available to provide information about history of the family and site, restaurants, Italian fashion outlets, wineries and tourist attractions.

The farmhouse borders a small, medieval castle village and is situated on a hilltop between Siena (25 km or 15 miles) and Arezzo. At an altitude of 500 m (1600 ft), cool breezes keep the resort comfortable under the Tuscan sun. It boasts stunning views of the Chianti hills and the Ambra Valley.
From the farmhouse, it is approximately a 20 minute drive to Siena and about an hour to Florence, San Gimignano, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia and Assisi.
More than 10 restaurants of various types are located within a 10 minutes drive. Good and convenient local food catering may arrive in your apartment.

Accommodation: the farmhouse consists of 8 apartments, with heating, totaling 16 double bedrooms. All the bedrooms have private bathrooms with shower and bidet. Each apartment features a spacious living room with well equipped kitchenette, dining table, satellite TV, wall safe and convertible sofa for two.
The brick floors, the ceiling with chestnut beams and the inviting furnishings are in keeping with the Tuscan character.
