Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Borgo Paradiso is a 1920’s stone farmhouse; originally a structure used as a farm shed, it has been subsequently enlarged and tastefully renovated by the current owner. A home with a rustic touch, with the typical exposed-beam ceilings and antique terracotta floors, but cosy and comfortable, complemented by an elegant outbuilding used as a fitness area with a large Jacuzzi for 4 people, sauna and solarium. One of the best parts of this property is the park surrounding the house, a spectacular botanical garden, overflowing with colours and embellished with hundreds of species of plants and flowers, that winds along a real nature trail inside the property and along the paths in the woods around it. Borgo Paradiso is situated on a beautiful hill with a view over the Colline Metallifere (metal-bearing hills). Located in the small village of Ciciano, very close to Chiusdino, with its famous Cistercian Abbey of San Galgano, it is strategically placed for visiting the famous borghi of the province of Siena, such as Montalcino and San Gimignano, or the Chianti territory and admiring their unique artistic and architectural charm. "...It is a vast countryside enlivened by all the beauty that the sublime genius of nature was able to create. There are mountains in part bare and in part lushly green, and large valleys full of gushing springs and deep trenches. Forests of tall turkey oaks and tall old oaks; shady and silent chestnut woods; vast natural grasslands. Nearby, isolated white houses in the countryside, little hamlets and villages; far off, obscured in the mounting mists, rise the towers of Siena and San Gimignano, and Volterra appears mixed in with the green, in a lucid serenity.” (Dina Ferri 1908-1930, poet and writer born in Chiusdino). Please note. A small annex inside the property occasionally is used with the utmost discretion by the owner who will not disturb the privacy of the guests and not interfere with the areas of their exclusive use.

Additional amenities include: baby cot, gym equipment (with stepper exercise bike and vibrating platform), built in stone barbecue, iron and ironing board, american coffee machine, spa (with jacuzzi tub and chromo therapy sauna solarium), complimentary toiletries, moka.
