The Borgo's Dwellings

A renovated mediaeval burgh where you can spend a delightful gourmet experience, comfortably accomodated in the agriturismo’s rooms with customised food and wine tasting itineraries

A Unique Experience

Walking along the gravel path among the olive trees, you can already breathe in the scent of rosemary and aromatic plants; the Wine Hotel between the farmhouses of the Fattoria, the Cacciatore, the Guardiano and the Pastore is equipped with all comforts and will be the “golden retreat” of your stay at the Podere Montale.

Il Borgo offers double and quadruple rooms, flats and a presidential suite.
Our dwellings all have panoramic terraces with views over the Val d’Orcia, to admire the breathtaking sunsets that the darkening of the sun each evening brings; private gardens with typical bush vegetation of Tuscany; access to the Park of Millenary Olive Trees and the swimming pool; a typical restaurant that serves Italian breakfasts, lunches and dinners with wines from our cellar.

Immersed in a park of millenary olive trees, in the lush hilly setting on the slopes of Monte Amiata, is our swimming pool for a regenerating swim at the end of a day spent in wine tasting, visits to the many wine cellars of the Val d’Orcia, rich symposia with the excellent Tuscan wines, pecorino cheeses, artisan cured meats and other typical products of our region.

The Borgo and the agriturismo accommodations are located in the context of Podere Montale Winery: a 200-hectare estate overlooking the Val d’Orcia, with vineyards, olive groves, a winery, a swimming pool, trekking itineraries, a restaurant, tastings of both typical and regional wines, sensorial tasting of olive oils, local cheeses and cold cuts, and other typical products, guided by an specialist provided by Podere Montale.
