Castel Porrona is the perfect place to live the Tuscan hospitality. Aldo and his team are always over reaching our expectations. We traveled a lot around the word but this place definitely worth every penny!!!! Dont expect anything than the best!

The unconventional layout of the hotel - dictated by the adaptation of the original borgo buildings - gave a lack of indoor lounge/communal areas which may not appeal to everyone. But the place is undoubtedly steeped in history and character. Our room was very comfortable...More

Description
Castel Porrona Relais & SPA represents one of the finest examples of a medieval Tuscan village. The “borgo” was built around the year 1100, and from 1361 to 1894 belonged to two of Siena’s largest patrician ...More families, the Tolomei and the Piccolomini. Later, in 1894 it came into the possession of Pietro Emilio Targes de Rochefort, a member of the French aristocracy. The Borgo’s position is within easy reach of some of the most interesting tourist destinations, historical and cultural spots such as Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Saturnia, the Argentario coast, Punta Ala, and the Maremma National Park. Castel Porrona Relais is ideal for a countryside-beach holiday. The Relais comprises 25 units, divided between rooms, suites and apartments; it boasts two restaurants, large reception areas, a club house, several bars and an extensive spa. The facilities of Castel Porrona Relais are housed in various buildings within the Borgo, and are arranged around Piazza Tolomei and its garden, which is the hub of life in the Borgo and at the Relais. Painstaking renovation of the buildings and an interior design project have turned these medieval dwellings into a place of refined hospitality, for a clientele seeking a unique Tuscan experience.
