Borgo della Meliana (13 km from San Gimignano (suites and apartments)
Central Tuscany, Chianti, and Siena, Italy
Note: Borgo della Meliana closes for the winter, reopening in March.
Spending a holiday at Borgo della Meliana means breathing in the history of the place and the landscape; it is thought that the original core was already present in 1200 on the Via Francigena, the route of the Pilgrims, the most ancient hilltop route between the Val d'Egola and the Val d'Elsa which connects the ancient parish church of San Pietro e Paolo in Coiano and the parish church of Santa Maria in Chianni located in Gambassi mentioned by Sigerio, the Archibishop of Canterbury, in the diary of his pilgrimage to Rome in 994. Going through these lands, like the pilgrims of times past, in a short time the modern traveler can reach the towns of San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Arezzo and Lucca, well known for their artistic treasures where one is immersed in an atmosphere rich in history and culture.
Borgo della Meliana is one of the very few farm complexes in the area to be "listed" by the Artist and Cultural Heritage Council and therefore the restructuring and restoration work was carried out with maximum respect to the original historic building. Nevertheless, there are all the mod-cons such as heating and air conditioning in all the rooms, satellite TV, Fast Internet, common laundry room, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and solarium. Next to the main building, which has undergone various changes and extensions over the centuries, are two other buildings once used as cellars, sheds and a granary. The whole complex hosts eleven large apartments and small villas each with two or three bedrooms, an outdoor loggia area and own private garden, as well as the wide common garden area, the oven area, swimming pool, and rooms for breakfast.
In Borgo della Meliana the quality of the apartments is very high. Rooms have been furnished with painstaking attention to every detail in line with the style and taste of Tuscan houses: furniture and furnishing complements are mostly antique and have been found following a long and patient search in the area. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the traditional materials used and the warm shades of colour are harmoniously combined to give each room a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. Each room is unique, with its own exclusive charm making the guest feel at home and at ease in an environment that is at once elegant and familiar in which to live and better appreciate a holiday in this region.
