Borgo Scopeto Relais is enveloped by the majestic beauty of the rolling hills of Chianti, overlooking a breathtaking view on Siena. A corner of paradise of fourteenth-century origin with a view of the Torre del Mangia and the Campanile of the Duomo, where all around open as far as the eye can see vineyards, olive groves and splendid holm oak woods where Erica Scoparia, the shrub, that still grows today, that was used to make brooms, to which we owe the origin of the name of the place.
The relais is a finely restored characteristic Tuscan estate, inhabited for five centuries by the illustrious Sienese dynasty of the Sozzini, which preserves in its rooms the authentic atmosphere of the past, embellished with design furnishings in a wine & country style. It has 52 elegant rooms, suites and villas, each different from the other, equipped with the most modern comforts.
The estate has an organic vegetable garden, an apiary, an orchard, fields of lavender and helichrysum, a Roccolo - eighteenth-century garden of dwarf oaks, two swimming pools, a SPA with wellness center and its own cosmetic line, where you can relax in contact with nature. It offers a high-level cuisine, with a bistrot and a gourmet restaurant, which favours high-quality local and 0 km products and pairs well the wines of the four property’s wineries. In fact, wine is at the center of the experiences offered by Borgo Scopeto, thanks to guided tours and tastings, themed events and a wellness program dedicated to wine therapy.
